Lauren Cole is a famous movie star,
recently divorced and about to film the final film in her
Athena series. Shortly before filming is to start, she
takes back from her husband the sword he once bought her.
She has always felt an attachment to the sword, and she
decides to make sure he canít keep it from her.
When she finally gets to hold the
sword, something strange happens. A man appears, claiming
to have been trapped in the sword since the 1700s. Despite
the strangeness of the situation, the attraction between
Aiden and Lauren canít be denied.
But someone else wants the sword, and
the magic it contains. And they will go through Lauren and
Aiden to get it.
This is the second book in the Phantom
series, and it might be best to read the first one before
reading Phantomís Touch. I felt like I was
missing something despite the efforts to keep the reader
Laurenís reaction to having a phantom
appear is mitigated by the lust and connection she feels
with Aiden. And being chased by a secret society, a
quasi-stalker from her past and her ex-husband doesnít seem
to phase her, or her best friend, who manages to get caught
up in the whole thing. For a book full of action, I was
actually a little let down. I just couldnít get into the
story, or even into caring what happened to the characters.
