When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.
Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.
Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?
Two words: HAUNTED LIGHTHOUSE! You have to be totally insane not to be drawn in by that alone, but if you need a little more…how about the fact that this is ultimately a horror/ghosts/oh holy shit you’re locked in a cage story with the release date of Valentines Day!! How awesome is THAT! Untimely death, sacrifice, kidnapped souls, it’s the stuff romances are made of. (Tell me I’m wrong…I dare you.) But in all seriousness, this sounds right up my slightly demented alley. And I can’t wait.
What are YOU waiting for?
