Forensic Investigator Ramsey Clark is in the quiet town of Buffalo Springs, Tennessee, investigating a murder.  A young woman was discovered by teenagers in the woods thought to be haunted by a red mist that brings death when it arrives. Devlin Stryker is a parapsychologist and a native to Buffalo Springs. He’s back investigating the circumstances around the murder. Ramsey is skeptical of Dev’s work and irritated by his flirting, but like every other woman who meets him, she eventually falls for his charm. Dev has his sights set on Ramsey, but he’s got his work cut out for him. Ramsey’s tough as nails attitude is going to make it hard to get close to her. When the past comes back to haunt Ramsey and the town, he may never get the chance.

At first glance, Dev and Ramsey’s differences seem insurmountable, but once you get to know them, they actually have a lot in common. They work well as a team, they both come from dysfunctional families, and they each hide secrets and have painful pasts. They also have great sexual chemistry -- they make a little magic together. Dev reminds me of Matthew McConaughey. He’s sexy and charming and his southern drawl would have me falling at his feet too. The details of Ramsey’s assault left me in a cold sweat. It’s understandable that she would be so guarded. The villains in Waking Evil are sadistic sexual predators whose God complexes make them even more psychotic. I wasn’t sure what to make of the paranormal aspect of Waking Evil at first, but it adds mystery and intrigue. Waking Evil is a gripping, suspenseful story.
