SYNOPSIS: ‘James Wentworth has a secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties with anyone. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it has been years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on. Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and every night she is awakened by visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail. Despite the obstacles of their secrets, James and Sarah fall in love. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. Soon James and Sarah piece their stories together and discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Do vampires and witches live in Salem? Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again? Part historical fiction, part romance, part paranormal fantasy, Her Dear and Loving Husband is a story for anyone who believes that true love never dies.

My Review: 

I was very intrigued when I read that this book was a mixture of Historical fiction and Paranormal Fantasy. I have read a few other books that attempted to intertwine these 2 genres and I had loved them. So I was very eager to see how this story would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the author also was able to blend these genres beautifully

I won't make an attempt to recap this book, because I believe the above synopsis captures the overall plot of the book well.  What I am hoping to get across is just how beautiful this story was. It was so different than other books about Vampires falling in love with humans. I had actually stopped reading Vampire books a long time ago because of how repetitive the story lines had gotten and how similar the over all plots were. But this one was unlike other Vampire books I had ever read before.

As a history buff I loved the historical aspects to this book. I loved reading about James' past and this love letters we wrote to his deceased wife. But one of my favorite aspects about this book was Elizabeth's nightmares. They were so intense and spooky and at times even scary. Each one gets more and more intense and had me flipping the pages dying to see what happened next!

As much as I loved reading about James' and Elizabeth's story apart. I enjoyed reading about their story together and their journey to finding love even more! I was a little caught off guard by the ending, but am anxious to get into the rest of this trilogy!
