Beginning in Shadow, by Brenda Nichols

It all started with a body.

Veteran paranormal detective Ginny Malone is used to dealing with the macabre. But when a dead River Sprite is found in a place she should never have been, everything goes to hell. Nothing can prepare her for the deadly role she’s to play in an ancient ritual or the connection to the man she’s only seen in her dreams and the realm of shadows.

Nocturne has walked through centuries, waiting for the woman forever linked to his destiny. Master of dreams and illusions, he must protect Ginny no only from a power-hungry Sidhe, but also an evil from his past.

Everything comes at a price, and love may be the most costly of all.
