Review: Phantom Pleasures by Julie Leto

Title: Phantom Pleasures
Author: Julie Leto
Source: Self Purchase
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date : December 21, 2011
Reviewer: Jasmyn

A hotel developer who wants to turn an abandoned island into an exclusive resort unwittingly unleashes a phantom cursed centuries ago-a spectral man who turns her secret desires into reality...

Don't let short and very vague blurb fool you.  This is a great book.  When hotel hieress inherits a supposedly haunted castle her eyes see big dollar signs.  A new hotel, with potentially a ghostly twist.  She would never expect the rumors to be true.  When she inadvertently releases a phantom from a gypsy enclave that disappeared 200 plus years ago, she's not quite sure what to think....other than "damn, he's hot."  But Alexa's surprises aren't over yet.  Damon isn't quite free yet, and together they must find a way to break the curse.  Throw in a jealous step-brother and fueding secret society and you have all sorts of excitement.

Alexa and Damon's romance was quick and to the point, they both had things to figure out but they never really let it get int he way of their feelings for each other.  Lots of little twists and turns, with some comic relief curtesy of Dante the kitty, I had a hard time putting the book down to sleep at night.


  1. The description kind of reminds me of a Star Trek episode where a Phantom/ghost was passed down to Dr. Crusher when her gram died. It made all her secret fantasies come true

    I like these types of stories.

  2. I have read from this author and really enjoyed her, so I might have to try this one out, even if there are ghosts involved!!!

  3. Don't let them hear you calling the ghosts - they're phantoms! lol. I just finished up book two and it's even better.
