Product Description

One touch can change everything…

Hitman Dmitri Lisko is determined to avenge his father. Once he takes out the man he believes is responsible for his family’s tragedies, he’s done killing for good. But a mysterious woman may tempt Dmitri to change his plan.

Sonya Truss was murdered in a Ukrainian village in 1968. Now she’s reappeared in San Francisco as a rusalka—the ghost of a wronged woman. And she’s thirsty for the blood of her killer. But she has to make things right before she’s trapped between worlds forever.

Sonya's enigmatic siren powers stir Dmitri's long-buried chivalry, and he finds himself compelled to help her. He also can’t resist giving her a taste of the pleasures she never experienced while she was alive. Soon they discover that touch has surprising consequences. Yet when their shared mission comes to cross-purposes, they must choose between deadly sacrifice—or surrendering to the one act that can save them both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and suspenseful but mostly amazing 20 September 2015
By Lydia Perversius - Published on
Well, this was... new.

I dare say, I've read stories involving lots of mythology facts and legends, from many cultures. But Slavic folklore was something that had eluded my attention - until now.

Dmitri Lisko knows he's no innocent man. And he also knows that daddy dearest was not an award-winning example as a father when he was alive. But he still blames one person for what his family had to go through - and now he's finally out to get him. But upon arriving at his aunt's house, where he's supposed to stay while stalking his target, he releases a rusalka from one of her antique teapots. Sonya Truss found an early death at the hands of suspicious militsya men many years ago. Now that she's back as a bloodthirsty ghost, she has only a little time to take revenge before she completely loses herself to her bloodlust. Both sexy ghost and broken ex-hitman have people to kill - but each one's vengeance is fated to destroy the other's chances...

I admit that I didn't know what a rusalka was. Like I said, I'm not very familiar with Slavic mythology. So I looked the term up, and I was shocked. The rusalka is truly a fearsome creature, and I couldn't finish reading all the info because I freaked - plus, I googled some images, and I assure you I had some pretty vivid nightmares focusing on what I saw.

Still, Sonya was one rusalka I wouldn't mind around. I've seen many friendly ghosts in books and all that, but it was really different from what I've read so far. Sonya was sweet, funny, and cute. She had that innocence that only children possess, and at the same time, a kind of wisdom that kept surprising me - and Dmitri. She was understanding and forgiving to an extent, and while she did want to live, even if she knew it was impossible, she still didn't mind passing on as long as those she cared about were safe. She was ready to throw her revenge aside just for Dmitri's sake, and while many might see it as a weakness and falling in love way too quickly and unrealistically, I say it was natural.

Because if you saw those two, you would see their chemistry and how well they fit together.

Dmitri was the typical thug, who may be that tall, dark, brooding man we drool over when we spot him, but he was by no means handsome. His nose was broken, and he had scars. Nothing like those perfect, flawless male heroes in romance. And yet he still manages to get the reader to swoon, despite his addictions, and his chaotic life, and all his hangups. He was secretly a huge, cuddlesome marshmallow, a teddy bear of a man that can screw you to oblivion, and then wrap himself around you to cuddle you to sleep - and if that's not hot and awesome as hell, I don't know what can be!

And you wanna know what makes him even better? He was such a knight, even if he didn't believe so himself, that he kept holding himself back, despite his raging need to get the sheets burning with Sonya. He was such a... well, a MAN, that he fully acknowledged that, yes, a guy with healthy sexual urges wants a woman, not a broomstick. Sonya kept seeing herself as fat because she was comparing her pin-up-model body with the toothpicks that walk around the streets nowadays, and our boy Dima kept insisting, half of the times in his head, the other half quite loudly, that he liked her that way, and in fact she was much sexier and that made him feel better as a male. Wow, just... wow! Not to mention that he, too, was ready to throw away his life and his revenge, and everything he had accomplished so far, all the riches and the prestige that waited for him back in Kiev, to be with her, if only for a little while, to make sure that she at least avenged her death and that she would pass on happily.

It made me wanna cry every time he sacrificed one more thing for his ghost's sake....

The good thing is, I sense there is another book coming. If that is true, given Belldene's amazing hot scenes, funny dialogue, and plethora of plot twists, I seriously can't wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and different! 3 November 2015
By Megan - Published on
I won this eBook over the summer. I haven't read any of Ms. Belldene's works and I am new to paranormal romance. When I finished the book, I had commented to someone that it was a quick read. I then went back to it later and saw that it is almost 200 pages long! I read it so quickly because I couldn't put it down!

I usually read Regency romances, but I enjoyed this modern-day paranormal romance so much that it has helped me to branch out. I found the Ukrainian backgrounds of the characters to be refreshing. I also really enjoyed learning about the Slavic mythology and folk lore.

I read Ms. Belldene's bio before I began reading this story and was surprised to discover that she is an Episcopal Priest and a paranormal romance writer. But, I felt that she paired both beautifully in this story. Ms. Belldene's writing made me feel hopeful through her exploration of redemption and forgiveness.
5.0 out of 5 stars A contemporary ghost story 9 August 2015
By The Author's Journal - Published on
The Siren's Touch really worked for me.
It's a contemporary romance with paranormal elements - a great blend. Sonya is a ghost seeking vengeance for her murder, and Dmitri is a hit-man seeking atonement he doesn't even understand he needs - until he meets her.
When they find each other can they resolve their inner demons and find any hope of a chance at love?
Suspenseful and yet longing, I'm recommending this story to my book club.
4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery, suspense and romance in this entertaining story! 29 February 2016

Sonya is a woman who was murdered, and she wants revenge - and it seems as though Dmitri is the one who will be able to help her when she appears to him. Dmitri has his own plans for revenge, but he can't help wanting to help this beautiful spectre. And when his touch makes her inhabit her body once again, he finds himself wanting to help her experience all the things she never was able to before her untimely death. But time is running out for both of them - can they catch a killer and find some kind of happiness before it's too late?

I really enjoyed this intriguing and interesting romance! Most paranormal stories I read have shifters, or vampires or demons, and this is the first time I've read a full novel that involved a ghost as the heroine of the story. Sonya comes across as a lovely woman from a warm family, whose fate was decided too soon when her family was murdered in 1968 in the Ukraine. Until now she's been in limbo, but the time has come for her to enact her revenge, and when she appears to Dmitri in the present time she calls to him on a soul deep level (in part because she is a Siren, a woman who can tempt men to their doom). Dmitri is also Ukrainian, with a complicated family history, including a deranged abusive father and an uncle for whom he still works as a contract killer. He knows he's a bad person, but assisting Sonya in her quest might help him redeem himself. Developing feelings for a ghost is not something he expects, but when she is able to become a solid, touchable woman, he finds himself drawn to her even more. They share some steamy scenes together, even with the knowledge that there can never be a future between them.

The setting was really interesting, centered in the Ukraine and San Francisco (in the past and in the present) with a nod to Ukrainian folklore in Sonya's presence as a 'rusalka' , a water nymph with a Siren's call. It's a mystery, a suspense story and a romance all rolled into one. And though it seems as though there is no way that there can be a happy ending for this couple (I mean, she is a ghost after all), I was pleasantly surprised with how the plot unfolded and how it all turned out. I'm looking forward to reading more as there is another mystery unveiled at the end that involves Sonya's sister. 4 stars for a unique and entertaining romance!
5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars. Loved Dmitri and Sonya. 31 July 2015

I went into this story having not paid much attention to the synopsis. My draw was simply having been a fan of Amber Belldene's 'Blood Vine' series, which I loved. So knowing Amber had written a new book, I knew I wanted to read it. Fortunately, it only took me a few chapters to become totally engrossed in this story.

'The Siren's Touch' felt like I stepped into a modern day fairy tale, but a fairy tale with a very dark and twisted path and characters teetering on the edge of a deep abyss. This was a supernatural tale revolving around revenge and vengeance, but also second chances, redemption, and love. I also loved the mix of past and present, Ukranian culture and mythology.

I was spellbound by Dmitri and Sonya's story and figuring out how they were going to solve Sonya's issue and what the consequences would be. And at the same time Dmitri had his own revenge plot he was trying to fulfill. But plans have a way of changing, particularly when new information comes to light, and the plotter himself starts to make personal changes as well. When a book revolves around revenge, it can be difficult to know how to root or your characters or if you should even cheer for them. There were certain moral questions that came to light, and I loved how Belldene handled it all, and how the ultimate plot unraveled and concluded.

I also fell in love with Dmitri and Sonya. Each had tragic pasts. Dmitri had been raised in a very difficult environment, and had unfortunately made some poor choices in his life. Sonya had been murdered, and while she was innocent then, now, as a rusalka, she has vengeance in her blood. Both are faced with incredible choices. But the beauty of this story is how these two souls find each other, and in the midst of helping each other, end up saving themselves. Dmitri makes the biggest changes, and I loved his transformation. For such a hard character, he turns out to be the sweetest. And for Sonya being so out of touch with the present, she turns out to be the perfect match for Dmitri. Their love story was beautiful, and I was on the edge of my seat hoping for a happy ending for them.

I loved 'The Siren's Touch' and Dmitri and Sonya's story. I was also excited to find out there would be sequels to this story, featuring some characters introduced here. I can't wait to read more in this fascinating series!
