What began as a casual dinner with friends quickly blossoms into a beautiful friendship for Rachel Adams and Derek Williamson. In time, it will develop into something much greater than either could have ever imagined. The pair have each had their share of tragedy and heartbreak that time has yet to heal. As their friendship evolves into something much more, Rachel begins to open up to the man she has fallen in love with about secrets that have consumed her life for so long.

Just when life seems to be opening up possibilities for the two of them, inexplicable and unsettling things start to happen. When these mysterious occurrences begin to invade their happiness, they are faced with the reality that they must find the truth about what haunts them. Will they survive as they uncover some of these long-kept secrets? Will the mystical forces that linked the lovers together so long ago be the same to destroy them in the end?

A Valentine's Date with Derek

Will you be mine? Is it possible to dream that I can have you in my heart forever?

If you will let me, I will love you beyond every realm you've ever imagined possible.

My lovely, when it comes to you, it's not about flowers, or candy, or romantic's so much more. It's about making you understand with my heart,my soul and my body what you are to me...and how you own me completely.

So I ask you again my love...will you be mine, not just for this day,but for eternity? I want this night to be the first night of forever for our love.

On Valentine’s Day, and everyday all I want is you…in my arms, and in my bed. I want to be inside of your head, inside of your heart, and more than anything…inside of you.

After I take your mind to another plane of ecstasy with my hot sweet kisses, I will drive your body wild with my magical fingers as you experience the hidden talents that a mystic man like me possesses.

I cannot wait to feel every depth of your hot, wet sweetness as you surround me. I want to taste your lips on my mouth, and when my lips travel to every part of your hot naked body; I want to hear you say my name again and again, as you beg me for more.

When I can’t resist you any longer and I thrust myself deep inside of you…baby you’ll hunger for all of me, you will be consumed by the mystical forces that are a part of me.

After I have loved your body and your soul, and after we have each found our sweet release over, and over...I will make sure I leave the imprint of my love in your heart forever.

My love is otherworldly, you will see.

You have never been loved by a man like me.

Oh my goodness!  This book had me captivated from the beginning, the suspense and the unanswered questions had me turning the pages. The characters were so real to me and the story line was great!  The mystery of the unknown drew me in while the bond between the characters had me wrapped up and feeling every emotion the characters had throughout the story.  I actually teared up twice with uncontrolled emotions, the characters seemed to come to life and the connection they had was powerful!

Rachel finds herself in the midst of her best friend, Jan's upcoming wedding as the 'Maid of Honor' but if that is not bad enough Jan's trying to set her up on a blind date with her fiance's 'Best Man', Derek.  Both want to back out of their dinner date with their friends, unsure of meeting someone new after everything they have been through recently.  Each trying to get their friends to fess up and quite lying to them about it being just a casual dinner meeting with no such luck.

Forces beyond their control fall into place prior to the dinner date both Rachel and Derek dread attending and they miss their chance to back out on their friends.  Upon entering the restaurant late, Rachel completely embarrasses herself when she runs into Derek for the first time.  Derek on the other hand is so captivated by Rachel and how she hangs on his every word throughout the evening, he cannot get the thought of her out of his head all night.

During the next few months of helping their best friends plan their wedding, the rehearsals they have to attend and the dinner dates to discuss details, Rachel and Derek become close as friends.  They begin to spend more and more time together, surprising both of them how comfortable they feel around each other.  Jan and Ken only wanted them to become friends after all, little did they know their friends had set their fate into motion from the very beginning.

While both Rachel and Derek have mysterious pasts lives, encounters that have no explanations, they find comfort in each other, the pieces start to fall into place and their deepest secrets start to unravel over time.  Opening up to each other more and more and finding out the truths of their past together.  While Rachel and Derek know that their chance meeting was arranged by their best friends, they did not know it would end up changing both their lives forever.

I cannot wait to find out what the author has in store for me in her next installment in her 'Secrets of the Mystic' series.  The ending to Promises In The Dark completely blew me away.  Once you start there's no turning back, the questions build as the answers start to trickle in you find yourself wanting to know more and how the story ends.
