Where The Wicked Read.... My Spot To Talk About, Review, Share My Love Of Books, and Anything Else That Comes To Mind..

Tuesday, November 26, 2013




Alex's body is in a coma. His soul, however, is not. Desperate to become whole, he must first convince stubborn beauty Evening Sinclair that he is not dead.

For generations, the Sinclairs have been healers. Using a gentle touch to heal the body and a soothing word to heal the soul, Evening Sinclair is no different. Yet despite her secret abilities, Eve has a some what normal existence, She enjoys her small physiotherapy practice, dotes on her eight-year-old daughter and occasionally helps souls get back into their bodies-that is until Alex, with his brooding good looks and glowing eyes, appears in her kitchen.

Alex is desperate to get back into his body- two innocent lives depend on it. His only obstacle is Eve and her stubborn fear. Unfortunately for Eve, Alex is ruthless and just as stubborn. He will do whatever it takes to get what he wants. He will not 'go away' and no matter how much Eve tortures him with her lush body and perfect mouth, he will not change his mind. Eve will merge him, and if it takes him haunting her day and night, she will merger him back with a body-any body.


This story was a little treasure to read, and Nancy Adams is an author to watch. The way she draws you into her characters lives, like you're right there with them is thrilling...

The Soul Within was a wonderfully romantic read, with just the right amount of action, suspense, and soul magic thrown in.

Alex Hunter is a government assassin who has just been betrayed by his partner. Shot in the back, and left to die while trying to save the life of a innocent pregnant women who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He doesn't die. Alex's body is in a coma, while his soul is left to roam free.

Eve Sinclair is a woman with the ability to merge a soul back into a persons body after a major life threatening trauma. She was born with this ability, it's handed down by the women in her family. Due to a previous scary experience with an evil soul, Eve has sworn off helping anymore lost souls. She spends her life ignoring them, and pretending they don't exist.

Alex is told that Eve can help him, and he sets out to find her. At first she tries to ignore him, and send him away, but Alex won't take no for an answer. He can't... Innocent lives are on the line, and his treacherous partner is closing in.

I really enjoyed this story, it took off a little slow, but once the pace picked up it was hard to put down. The hero and heroine are both extremely likeable, determined, loyal, and had great chemistry in and out of the bedroom. The plot was nicely paced, the action and suspense kept me turning the pages, desperate to see what happens next.

The sexy scenes were well written, sizzling hot, and fit in right with the pace of the story. The paranormal aspects were thought out, explained, and completely believable. The secondary characters were also fun to read, some were endearing, and they left their mark on the story and kept it fresh.

I will be adding Nancy Adams to my list, and keeping my eye out for her new releases.


*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. My opinions are my own.*


“You’re really not dead.”
He studied her intently. “Is that why you won’t help me, because you think I’m dead?”
Embarrassed, she turned away. “I thought you might be and that you were having trouble…moving on.”
“Moving on?” he repeated. She heard him exhale in a huff but didn’t want to face him yet.
“Eve?” He used her name to get her attention but she didn’t budge. “Evening.” This time her name was said with more force.
Her cheeks were warm when she faced him. She expected him to be annoyed but he only showed concern. “Do you see the dead too?”
“No. Never, just medians. My mother did, I thought maybe it had started for me too. It was the only explanation I could come up with as to why you were still hanging around me.” Her throat felt like it was beginning to close up with the thought of it, but she asked him anyway.             “Have you seen…them…out there?”
Alex was going to ask if she wanted the truth, then saw the fear in her eyes and lied. “No, I haven’t.”
The truth was he had seen many dead people walking around the hospital, mixing in with crowds sitting on benches in the waiting rooms, following around nurses and patients. The difference he noticed between the dead and the living was purpose. The living had a purpose, work needed to be done, people needed to be taken care of, the living had things to do, places to go. The dead didn’t do anything but follow the living. None of them had any direction, all of them were lost. All of them were unnoticed.

My name is Nancy Adams. I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running though my veins. I enjoy watching hockey but despise skating...and the cold. I enjoy a good helping of Tourtiere with a side of Poutine as much as the next person, yet I am only bilingual when it comes to swear words.Besides writing, I have three small - but legal - addictions: bed linens, lavender and books. All of which are replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning is one of my many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
