Their innocent bonding ritual led to seven days of madness, every seven years. And now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it.
Since that day at The Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into others' minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust, because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability - and this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she'll have no defenses against the desire that threatens to consume them both.

This is not the first Nora Roberts book I have heard. I found this one a waste of time. It seemed to be aimed at a teenage audience. The constant worry about whether to have sex or not was boring. Was that intended to be "romantic?" All I could think was "get over it." I really couldn't care about any of the characters.
The actual story of the pagan stone was found in the last 30 minutes with brief "encounters with evil" tossed in here and there.
I have read previous reviews of this book and find myself in the minority. Many of the sub plots (the wedding dress) didn't fit into the story perhaps because I didn't hear the first 2 books. Maybe there will be a sequel but it will not be on my list.
The narration was OK. I hated the loud, whiny voice for some of the women.
This is the worst narrator ever. The females sound like spoiled cheerleaders. Just for reference if reading about a demon making you see a pitcher of blood instead of beer, she made it sound like a Valley girl who broke a nail, that's when I gave up.
Anger in the way it was ruined, I have read the book and enjoyed it. The terrible narration may have ruined it for me forever. When I went to my bookshelves and got it out to read I found I could because I kept hearing that whinny voice in my head.
I am returning this one ASAP. I try not to do return many but I want my credit back!
This book like the others in the series keeps you hooked. Hard to put down.....
I would say the whole story is memorable...around every corner there is a new twist. Fox really comes to life on these pages.
She made you feel like you were a aprt of the Hollow....and Fox's and the rest of them came to life.
The whole book...had to run to download the rest of the series so I didn't miss a part :)
