READ AN EXCERPT.
The third book in the VOICES series, VOICES ECHO stands alone as a riveting depiction of both the beauty of 18th-century Jamaica and the horrors of plantation life in the British West Indies.
When Albert Ross sailed to Jamaica months after their wedding, Rhiannon Ross believed he'd abandoned her for the sanctuary of his West Indies plantation and complacent mulatta mistress. Not one to live life in limbo, Rhiannon has followed in a bid to secure the funds necessary to ensure her financial independence and position as his lawful wife, and to quell her growing attraction to her unsuitable American advisor, Liam Brock.
Determined to put the enticing Mrs. Ross out of his mind, Liam Brock accepts an assignment to escort a young heiress to her father's Jamaican estate. Convinced his and Rhiannon's ships have crossed paths, he is stunned to learn Rhiannon is still with her husband, and shocked when he finds her isolated and frightened--a shell of the vibrant woman who still fills his dreams. He begins to suspect that beneath the exotic beauty of an island teeming with vitality, there beats a sinister pulse.
As evidence of smuggling and dark magic are uncovered, Rhiannon realizes that not only is her plantation in danger, but the lives of those she holds dearest are at stake. Though she struggles to hide her feelings for Liam, she cannot bear the thought of him coming to harm because of her. As greed on the island evolves into violence and violence into murder, Liam and Rhiannon find themselves in the midst of a deadly intrigue. Both must decide how far they will go in the name of protecting the other, and how much they will sacrifice to attain a future neither thought possible.
Going into this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had not read the first two books and was a little hesitant to jump into the third one. I am glad I did!
The author is an excellent storyteller. The descriptions in the book are so well written that I can see the people, the land, the weather, everything so clearly in my mind that it is like I was there. The characters come alive and become more than just words on a page. I really envy the author's ability to make her books live!
The story itself was very good. There is a darkness that I didn't expect but really enjoyed. The intrigue and the romance is well played out and kept me reading steadily through the night. While I am a happily married (and extremely jealous) woman that is whole-heartedly against infidelity, I easily understood the relationship between Rhiannon and Liam. I think the author handled it very well.
I would give this book a five out of five star rating. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys wonderfully written books that draw you in and keep you entranced.
