Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance
For Erik Anderson, the Copenhagen line is his curse. He takes the train every night en route to collect souls. Like any lovelorn fool, he bargained his own long ago, and now pays the price—a lifetime of loneliness as a grim reaper. Stay distant—that's been his mantra and what keeps him sane.
Until Mina Castner drops into his life like a whirlwind, one spilled drink leading to staying up until dawn with the woman. He believed one night couldn't hurt, but he sorely underestimated her determination. Every encounter between them is reprieve from the guilt of reaping souls every night, but it can't last. Even if she sparks long buried feelings, and even if her sheer presence intoxicates him, he can't let this continue. For humans, his touch is poison, and if he slips up, it could cost her life.

The more I see you the more I want you.
If the title I've given to my review sounds familiar it's because it's the title of a song from the 1950's by Nat King Cole. If you read the lyrics of his version of the song, you'll get some idea of how Erik Anderson feels towards Mina Castner.
Each time I look at you is like the first time
Each time you're near me, the thrill is new
And there is nothing that I wouldn't do for
The rare delight of the sight of you for…
The more I see you, the more I want you
Somehow this feeling just grows and grows
With every sigh I become more mad about you
More lost without you and so it goes
But unfortunately this is a forbidden kind of a love relationship, for you see he's the grim reaper and she's only human. Erik knows his mere touch will cost Mina her life. But her simply being in his sight has cost his years of being alone to ignite his long-suppressed feelings towards the opposite sex and he's drawn to her like a moth around the flame of a candle, which can become deadly if it continues for too long.
Mina sees past the cold façade Erik presents to everyone to the beauty and gentleness he actually possesses. There's a serious affection which exists between these two, even without the holding of hands or the slightest gentle kiss, an affection which grows the more they're in each other's company.
I loved how Ms. McIntyre ended her novella in an extremely sensual manner coupled with an unsuspected happy ending, which is why I'm giving her endeavor here 5 stars.
