Clare C's Review
The book is called, Soul Dealer: Redemption. When the soul in deed of redemption is the hero, it makes it a little hard to root for him to win his girl. Cain was a very bad person in life. If you read the first book in the series, you are cheering for him to die by the end of the book. Sandy had a cursory relationship with Cain previously, who brushed her off when they were through. Sandy is depressed, so depressed she is ready to end it all. Cain is given the chance to redeem his soul, by saving hers. This story is very much Cain's story, and how by learning to save someone else, he saves himself.
Cain is taken through a difficult journey of self discovery and forced to confront what an awful person he was when alive, and how his love 'em and leave 'em attitude left a string of depressed and unhappy women in his wake. While this is not the typical path to an HEA, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and I'm sure you will too.
