Is it true love...or is the magnetic pull just another part of the Victorian's lure?

Dakota Allerton depends on no one but herself, but then she's never needed a ghost hunter. When her dream home becomes a house of horrors that is holding her hostage, her only hope is a Scotsman who investigates the paranormal.

The supernatural is nothing Leathan Stewart can't handle. However, trapped in Dakota's cursed Victorian home, he finds himself falling back in time. Only those who persevere can survive the dark domination.

Fear has a way of drawing two people together...but so does the need to be loved. Dakota and Leathan must fight against unknown enemies, discover the secrets of Calum's Curse and defeat a vampire bent on finishing the legacy it began.  -Goodreads

My Thoughts
It is not often that I do a first person review, but after reading The Victorian Lure, I couldn't help making my review personal.
I flew through this book's 310 pages in record time, swept away in a story of ghosts, vamps, family curses, secrets and passion.
This book is a refreshing take on the paranormal, adding a ghost hunter into an already suped up read.
My sincerest thanks to authoress Sky Purington for allowing her readers strong human leads in Leathan and Dakota.
These characters are very believable and easy to relate to.  They make readers want to know them both together and separately. 
The passion that they share makes you want to read ahead just to see them together "one more time";
and they are written in such a way that the tension between them, whether it be sexual or situational, is never forced.
Add to this a psychotic vampire, a setting that is always in some sort of time shifting flux, ghosts, and family secrets that are slowly revealed throughout the story's course, and you've got one great read.
This is a book that is truly a diamond among literary coal.
I am so happy that this was just the first in a wonderful series.
