Mind traveler Chandra Lamar is on the run, not only from her post-catastrophic dystopian government but from a past she can't remember. A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it's a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she'll never have. Both push her to remember the past because it threatens what she wants in the now; the Nodin men.
Andonis Nodin battles to accept his failures. The heavy burden nearly breaks him when he can't save a loved one from the grim reaper's grip and questions his desire for Chandra, the woman he blames for the death around him.
Nikias finds true love with Chandra in his arms, but is desperate to stop her from seeking revenge on a mission he knows is a one way trip.
Ortello knows for them to recapture the love they once felt for each other, he must be willing to let her go. But overcoming his obsession to make Chandra his and his alone isn't easy.
Will Chandra go through with the vengeance in her heart or give it up for love? Who is the powerful woman in her haunting visions and will those revealing apparitions crumble her world with the Nodin clan? Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart?

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Ms. Havens originally wrote a book called Sinful Surrender about my best friend, Fay Avalon. It would only be natural she'd write a book about Fay's only family member, even if we're not blood related family. We're all we have; each other.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I was surprised she picked me. I mean there are so many others far more intriguing than me. I'm a very private person by nature and lifestyle. My life isn't really that interesting. Now, if you'd asked me I would have assumed Ms. Havens would have picked Talpidae...its come to my attention, he's been living a double life...but he won't be living it for long with all the double-crossing he's been up to.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
Have you read Ms. Haven's bio? OMG, that woman's lived quiet a life. She traveled the world before its demise, back before the Trasdamian predictions of the world's end came true. Back when the world's surface was filled with humans. Back when Love was free. Honor was the norm, and life was…sweet to live.
As she aged, she saw the world changing…she was one who saw the beginning of the end. She saw the evil that lurked behind the beautiful surface that became my world. With that much going on in the world and her life...her head had to be filled with stories to tell until the end of time. I think that's why she writes. To see and know that much, she'd have to write it out just the keep her mind.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I wish she'd write me a perfect world without war and help me unravel my past.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?
I'll let her reviewers speak for me. This is what a few said about the book she did on me:
