Will love and fate find a way?

What secret must Jasper hide?



18+ erotic fantasy romance.
*****


Forever Blue by Elodie Parkes is a short story/novella that is in its own right a captivating romantic thriller with a paranormal twist. The plot has a couple of borderline erotic scenes but Elodie Parkes was careful enough to not cross into erotica, hence keeping the focus on the main story-line. I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the way Elodie Parkes was able to tell such a complex story without involving too many plots and subplots. The plot does not bore you with unnecessary details; it takes you straight to the heart of the story. The story builds suspense and anticipation and it had me turning the pages nonstop, so that by the end of just one afternoon I was on the last page.

Excerpt:
 


When she arrived home, he was in his usual place on the patio. It was an exceptionally dark night. The moon was covered with dense cloud. Rain fell in huge drops. He heard the Land Rover long before she pulled into her path and parked. Jasper heard her humming. She went through her front door. If she had been to a hide somewhere other than in the local area she was home early, he decided. He listened to the sound of her making a hot drink in her kitchen. He smiled. He couldn’t stop smiling. The sound of her voice flowed over him. It trickled into his mind and heart, lifting his spirits, and giving him hope.
Jasper stood silently by the holly tree and close to the biggest potted trees. One of them was shaped into a ball. He liked that. When the conservatory door opened and Claudie stepped out, he froze in the darkness and the shadow of the holly.
