4.0 The Shadowy Horses
This was first my Kearsley book and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The story had a touch of gothic, paranormal, historical & romance which are all favorites of mine. I'm looking forward to checking out what else she has to offer.
