"Excellent ghost/time travel romance"

Under a beautiful Aurora Borealis-painted sky Valerie Scott and her Golden Retriever are exploring the property she recently inherited in Northern Ontario when the canine finds a naked male. She wants to take the enigmatic Jack Wilder to the nearest town, but he insists he must see Arthur Pembroke, her deceased uncle.

Jack is stunned with the news that Arthur recently died because during the years of his recurring nightmare her uncle was always the one friend he had and could count on for comfort. Still Jack and Valerie are immediately attracted to one another as he struggles with confiding his secrets to her while she wonders if she made an error not taking him to the town instead of her lodge. Jack begins to understand that perhaps he cannot correct the past in what already has happened, but conceivably can fix the present and future with the love he shares with Valerie.

NIGHT SECRETS is a complex mixing of a ghost tale with a time travel tale that cohesively turns into an engaging romance. The story line is complex but needs a bit of time to reveal its secrets so that those patient readers amidst the audience will be rewarded with a strong novel. The lead couple is a dynamic duo and Uncle Arthur (ghostly and in memory) is quite a supporting character. Fans of supernatural and time travel romance will fully enjoy Norah- Jean Perkin's debut tale especially when the story line shifts into first gear.

The first time Jack Wilder awoke, brilliant red flashed across the night sky. The second time he found himself staring into compassionate brown eyes. And he cursed his luck. In glowing shades of green and yellow, the Northern Lights had once again transported him to Lake Aurora and the site of a tragedy that he yearned to forget.

When Valerie Scott rescued him from the beach, her beauty stole his breath, her gentle touch set his pulse racing...and the fear that occasionally flickered in her eyes reminded him of another woman and another era. He longed to confide his secrets, to garner her faith, to win her heart--and he vowed to protect her at all costs. Had fate saved him or damned him? Jack realized the answer lay not in the stars, but in trusting his soul, for in Valerie's arms he discovered the one thing that could deliver him from the past, a force more powerful than the pulsing lights that controlled his destiny: love.
