Love Spell, Mar 2002, 5.99, 306 pp.
Under a beautiful Aurora Borealis-painted sky Valerie Scott and her Golden Retriever are exploring the property she recently inherited in Northern Ontario when the canine finds a naked male. She wants to take the enigmatic Jack Wilder to the nearest town, but he insists he must see Arthur Pembroke, her deceased uncle.
Jack is stunned with the news that Arthur recently died because during the years of his recurring nightmare her uncle was always the one friend he had and could count on for comfort. Still Jack and Valerie are immediately attracted to one another as he struggles with confiding his secrets to her while she wonders if she made an error not taking him to the town instead of her lodge. Jack begins to understand that perhaps he cannot correct the past in what already has happened, but conceivably can fix the present and future with the love he shares with Valerie.
NIGHT SECRETS is a complex mixing of a ghost tale with a time travel tale that cohesively turns into an engaging romance. The story line is complex but needs a bit of time to reveal its secrets so that those patient readers amidst the audience will be rewarded with a strong novel. The lead couple is a dynamic duo and Uncle Arthur (ghostly and in memory) is quite a supporting character. Fans of supernatural and time travel romance will fully enjoy Norah-Jean Perkin's debut tale especially when the story line shifts into first gear.
