Summoning Up Love

He gave a shy smile that made her want to pinch his dimpled cheeks before shoving him against a wall and kissing him.

Summoning Up Love


Publisher’s Synopsis:
A fraud?

Or the find of her lifetime?

Vanessa Steele retreats to her grandmother’s beach house to heal after she loses her job and her fiancé. When she finds that Grandma’s enlisted hunky Dion Livingston and his brothers to investigate suspicious paranormal activity, the intrepid reporter’s skeptical of their motives. But her own investigation discovers that Dion’s the real deal. And any supernatural energy? Pales compared to the electricity that erupts when the two of them are together…

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating POVs by chapter.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
While Dion & his brothers investigate haunted houses – this isn’t a paranormal romance in the usual sense. Instead it’s a cute & sexy small town romance with a unique business venture.

I enjoyed both Vanessa and Dion as characters and a couple. While they had a rough start, overall I’d consider this fairly low angst. Dion was incredibly patient with Vanessa’s doubts and Vanessa tried to encourage Dion without making him feel inferior.

Williams does a great job of balancing small town gossip & politics, a budding relationship, new opportunities, and some very sexy scenes. Delightful read beginning to end. I’m excited for Wes’s book, The Spirit of Second Chances.

About the author:
Synithia has loved romance novels since reading her first one at the age of 13. It was only natural she would begin penning her own soon after. It wasn’t until 2010 that she began to actively pursue her dream of becoming a published author. Synithia has also written two books under the pseudonym Nita Brooks. When she isn’t writing, she works on water quality issues for local government while balancing the needs of her husband and two sons.
