Description: Respect the hawthorn... Hana Brown is an architect with an unusual talent; wood speaks to her--literally. Dubbed the "house whisperer" by her satisfied clients who don't know her unusual secret, Hana has no reason to believe her next job could be her last. Lord William Hawthorn, the last in his line, has one more chance to right the terrible wrongs that overshadow his family home and threaten his life. Falling for the beguiling Hana brings her closer to the danger and he'll fight his growing feelings for her if it will appease the mysterious malevolent spirit and keep her safe from harm. Their only hope of survival means trusting their deepest secrets to each other before its too late ... and trusting the whispers in the wood.

"Intrigue, suspense, and a wonderful love story, Whispers in the Wood is one tale you won't want to miss."--Black Orchid, Cocktail Reviews
Running her hand along the wood she felt again the age and the thread of spirit still left within the smooth surface. Her fingers stopped at a whorled knot, and she examined the depressed surface. A jolt of electricity raced through her body.
The life force grew stronger, tall, strong, straight as an arrow, hands reaching for the sky, the sun infusing skin with pure sweet rays, pain, betrayal, blood.
Hana swayed and pulled her hand away. She shook her head and rubbed her shaking fingers. Sap, not blood. Leaves, not hands. She took a ragged breath. The whispers in the wood spoke differently in this house. Something seemed very wrong here.
But there was no one to ask and no one to tell.
