5 Hellish, Incredible Stars!
Totally Entranced From The First Page To The Last! This Book Took Me On A Thrilling, Sexy Ride I Didn’t Want To Get Off Of! 

The Review: 
I’m a huge fan of Gracen Miller. She simply writes the most phenomenal, seducing and unique stories. So it was no surprise Pandora's Box once again elevated her to my “must-read” and “favorite-authors” list! The world she creates for her readers is extraordinary and fascinating. This story is filled with action and attention grabbing sequences and a multitude of characters that are so well written, you can actually feel the changes in them as they progress throughout the story. I loved this book!

Story/Characters... 
Madison is the fiery and intelligent mother of Amos, a seemingly ordinary 5 year old who suddenly starts to act frighteningly out of character. Madison seeks help from anyone and everyone in a quest to help her son, even turning to the world of the supernatural when the medical community fails to find answers to Amos's strange behavior. By way of an acquaintance, Madison is introduced to a group of Sherloks (supernatural hunters), in hopes they might have the answers, only to find that the fate of her son and maybe the fate of the world, truly rests in her hands. Madison makes for the perfect heroine as she fights the supernatural world against her and her sons destiny.

Phoenix is the steamy and charismatic Sherlock, who grabs Madison's (and the readers) attention from the moment he step through her doorway. Together, these two burn up the pages with their angsty, intense, sexy chemistry. The handsome and devilishly evil Micha makes for the ultimate bad guy while maintaining a perfect balance of cunning and charm. He made me both fear him and swoon over him. I can’t help it. I love a sexy bad guy!

I really enjoyed the creativity and unique imagery that went into this book. The scenes were terrifying, sultry and intriguing and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep you glued to this read!

The Wrap Up: 
Pandora’s Box is the first book in an harrowing and riveting series that you’ll want to devour after being completely hooked by the first chapter! I couldn’t put this book down as Gracen Miller weaves an amazingly epic, intense and creative tale that will draw you in and hold you captive to then leave you with one heck of a cliff hanger! This one is definitely a keeper and the best part is, the next book is already out so I don’t have to wait to see what happens next! Bring it!


SHORT EXCERPT

     Phoenix placed a hand over hers, keeping her from tucking away the kit’s contents and motioned to her neck. “You’re bleeding, too.”
Madison touched her throat, shocked when her fingers came away smeared with blood.
     “May I?” He held up the medical supplies.
     She nodded and watched as he doused gauze with antiseptic. “Dr. Nix at your service.” He gave her a grin, and two adorable dimples charmed her where words failed.
     Madison rolled her eyes, and tipped her head to the side to give him better access. He brushed her hair off her neck, back behind her shoulder. Such a simple gesture, yet it felt terribly personal. The air grew thick and sticky with her awareness of him. She shifted in her seat and crossed her legs.
     Madison stared into his eyes. Green. His eyes were green, gorgeous and intense, with ridiculously long eyelashes women would dream about having. If they didn’t, they should. A flicker of compassion, concern, and something else she couldn’t identify flashed in his eyes.
     “Ready?” The husky tenor of his voice forced her gaze to shift to his mouth. Nice, sexy lips, designed for kissing. She gave a mental shake but couldn’t resist wondering how his mouth would feel on hers.
     “Madison?” Humor deepened his voice, a touch of a smile tilted the edges of the lips she’d been fantasizing about, and she realized she still stared at them. “You ready?” he asked again, and her eyes widened in embarrassment over her foolish stupor.
     She swallowed hard.
     “Yeah.” She whispered past the lump in her throat, and forced her vision to lock on the wall over his shoulder. Good God, what was wrong with her? Her pulse throbbed like crazy, and she felt woozy.
     Loss of blood!
     Must be why she reacted that way. No other explanation made sense.
     Even though the antiseptic stung like hell, the gentle touch coming from such a gruff man surprised her. “It’s not bad.” He dabbed the blood away. “Just a nick.”
     Well, she could nix the blood loss theory. Exhaustion and stress were the only other excuses she could come up with. “I’ve suffered worse.” Her voice sounded off, kind of hoarse. She tried to clear her throat delicately, but he must have noticed her unease, because his perceptive gaze met hers. Again, she thought she caught the edge of concern in his scrutiny.
     “This isn’t the first time he’s attacked you?”
     “No. It’s the first time he’s tried to seriously kill me, though.” She sighed as she closed her eyes, ready to give up fighting, the sudden tears threatening to fall. Okay, woozy and acting strange because of strain…not because of him. Seriously, as far as first impressions went, she wasn’t impressed.

About the Author...

Gracen is a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a “normal” person in southern society. When not writing, she’s a full-time basketball/lacrosse/guitar mom for her two sons and a devoted wife to her real-life hero-husband of over twenty years. She has an unusual relationship with her muse, Dom, but credits all her creative success to his brilliant mind. 

She’s addicted to writing, paranormal romance novels and movies, Alabama football, and coffee...addictions are not necessarily in order of priority. She’s convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and when blending coffee and writing together it generates the perfect creative merger. Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs and Dom’s aggressive demands. To learn more about Gracen or to leave her a comment, visit her website at www.gracen-miller.com.
