Weaver has crafted an incredibly tense, hauntingly beautiful and heartbreakingly romantic tale that will captivate readers and remain embedded in their memories. Maxwell Harrison is a delightfully dark and sexy hero, and Delaney is simply beautiful inside and out. The twisting, turning plot will have readers guessing until the very end.
Delaney Wainright has lost her memory in a tragic car accident and fire that killed her husband. She returns to her childhood home to recover and almost immediately she’s haunted by her imaginary childhood friend, Max, who seems to be reappearing to help her recover her memory. But Max isn’t a child anymore and Delaney questions her sanity when her imaginary friend becomes her imaginary lover. Maxwell Harrison barely survived an abusive childhood. After saving a young Delaney from drowning they forged a mental connection that helped him escape. Then she left and he was alone. Now she’s back and wants him to help her. But she doesn’t believe he’s real, and maybe that’s for the best — she wouldn’t want to be with him if she knew the real Max. But when someone tries to kill her, Max must decide to either show himself to Delaney or risk losing her forever. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Aug., 336 pp., $7.99)
