Author: Lydia Nyx

POV: 3rd Person
Sub-Genre: Paranormal Romance
Cory Phillips is spending a semester studying abroad in London. In need of a job, he lands a position as a clerk in a gift shop that caters to tourists on London’s famous ghost walks. There he meets Alexi Lovegood, a charming and handsome man who plays the ghost of Sir Donovan Cartwright on one of the tours. As romance blossoms amid the campy fun, something spooky in the mist of London’s streets threatens to intervene…
Lydia has definitely been able to paint such beautiful characters in such a short piece, I am amazed. Not only that but the cool London streets and brought to the fore with colourful descriptions and reader friendly writing style.
Each character I could see and hear, so much so I felt I knew the characters from the first few pages. The story itself was well paced and intriguing. In a genre that is predominantly sex based, Lydia has shone through with a truly romantic tale of falling in love, with a little mystery and the supernatural thrown in for good measure. Very short, but very, very good.
