GHOST HUNTER

by Jayne Castle

Where deadly energy ghosts lurk in the ruins of an ancient alien civilization. Where dust bunnies prove to be loyal pets. And where a ghost hunter will discover that a woman's heart is the most dangerous adversary of all...

Local Guild boss and powerful ghost-hunter Cooper Boone is everything botanist Elly St. Clair could ask for - the handsome, strong, and silent type. Maybe too silent. For when Guild secrets threaten her career at the college, Elly has to call off their marriage - and leave small-town life behind...

But starting over in the thriving metropolis of Cadence City isn't easy, especially when one of Elly's new friends disappears in the eerie catacombs beneath the streets. Cooper turns up just in time to help Elly investigate. And as the mystery deepens and dangerous ghost myths and legends come to light, Cooper makes it clear he intends to stick around - and this time he's holding nothing back...

MUCH ADO IN THE MOONLIGHT
by Lynn Kurland

Award-winning and USA Today bestselling author Lynn Kurland "consistently delivers the kind of stories readers dream about." (The Oakland Press) Now, she pens a wonderfully romantic tale about an eight-hundred-year-old ghost and the modern woman who turns his plans for a peaceful afterlife upside down...

When Victoria McKinnon's brother offers to finance her production of Hamlet, she leaps at the chance. She can't imagine anything better than staging Shakespeare's masterpiece in an honest-to-goodness English castle. There's just one problem: the place is haunted—by a grumpy, gorgeous Highland warrior who's furious that anyone dares to invade his home.

Connor MacDougal has no intention of relinquishing his authority over Thorpewold Castle to anyone, let alone a McKinnon. But then he catches a glimpse of the beautiful intruder—and suddenly he can't help but wonder why it's taken eight hundred years into his afterlife to find the love of a lifetime...

GHOSTLY MISTAKES

by Mary Alice Pritchard

Lizzy planned to make this mission short and sweet but thanks to her client, Carl Taylor’s inability to provide details, it looked as if she was in for an extended adventure.  A dangerous farmer with buried secrets and the zealous accusations of a lady’s church group keep her on her toes. If all of this isn’t enough to complicate her task, her growing attraction to the highway patrolman who caught her speeding adds spice to the brew. If she doesn’t solve the puzzle left in her hands, she could find herself stuck with Carl for life.  Oh, did I mention he isn’t a paying customer? Well, being a ghost limits your financial abilities somewhat.

One journey he hadn’t expected to travel included a sassy redhead with secrets he wanted to explore. She seemed to find trouble at every turn and Jacob was determined to keep her safe. His plans didn’t include a spirited woman but he would make room for this one if she lived long enough and didn’t turn out to be someone other than who she claimed to be.

THE GHOST ORCHID

by Carol Goodman

Nestled deep in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains lies the Bosco estate, a nineteenth-century mansion that was once the home of lumber magnate Milo Latham and his wife, Aurora. A rambling property nearly buried under the ruins of once--opulent statuary gardens and mazes, Bosco now serves as an exclusive creative retreat, where artists and writers live and work under almost oppressive seclusion. Inspired by a timeworn pamphlet describing the scandalous events that took place there in 1893, first-time novelist Ellis Brooks comes to Bosco to write about the tragedies that befell the Latham family and the role Corinth Blackwell, a spiritual medium, played in the family's downfall. When Ellis uncovers the family's secrets, she and her fellow writers find themselves imperiled by the house's sinister history. Goodman's mastery of eerily atmospheric and richly intricate plots is nowhere more evident than in this deliciously menacing and harrowing tale of greed and avarice, where perception is reality, and where past and present collide with disastrous results.

RED LILY

by Nora Roberts

Three women learn that the heart of their historic home holds a mystery of years gone by, as number-one bestselling author Nora Roberts brings her In the Garden trilogy to a captivating conclusion, following Blue Dahlia and Black Rose.

A Harper has always lived at Harper House, the centuries-old mansion just outside of Memphis. And for as long as anyone alive remembers, the ghostly Harper Bride has walked the halls, singing lullabies at night...

Hayley Phillips came to Memphis hoping for a new start, for herself and her unborn child. She wasn't looking for a handout from her distant cousin Roz, just a job at her thriving In the Garden nursery. What she found was a home surrounded by beauty and the best friends she's ever had—including Roz's son Harper. To Hayley's delight, her new daughter Lily has really taken to him. To Hayley's chagrin, she has begun to dream about Harper—as much more than a friend...

If Hayley gives in to her desire, she's afraid the foundation she's built with Harper will come tumbling down. Especially since she's begun to suspect that her feelings are no longer completely her own. Flashes of the past and erratic behavior make Hayley believe that the Harper Bride has found a way inside of her mind and body. It's time to put the Bride to rest once and for all, so Hayley can know her own heart again—and whether she's willing to risk it...

KATIE AND THE GHOST

by Amy O'Connor

There are no such things as ghosts. Or are there? Just how does a ghost go about proving he really exists?

Kate had traveled to a 'haunted' coaching inn, The Red Lion, prepared to debunk yet another corny ghost story. In fifteen years of 'ghost-hunting', she’d never come across a real, live ghost – so why would the supposed Earl of Heatheringham be any different?

It wasn't long before she saw him. Yes, the 'Earl' was absolutely gorgeous. And, yes, she fell in instant lust with the handsome actor who played his role so well. How could she not – he was a fantasy come to life. But of course he wasn't a real ghost.

Or was he?

It was kind of hard to explain the way she could put a hand right through him… And when he went all out to prove that there really was such a thing as ghosts, well, what was a girl to do? Argue with her dream lover? Not likely!

THE PHANTOM OF THE BATHTUB

by Eugenia Riley

 

Why ever would her new house be haunted? It's just a hangman's house. All Viveca Stanhope needs to complete the spooky scene is a few black spiders and cobwebs. Instead she gets a phantom. In her bathtub. A ghost who insists on whispering sweet nothings in her ear every time she sinks into the bubbles.

But it's her enigmatic neighbor who really makes Viveca shiver at night. Maxwell Beecher has the uncanny ability to make Viveca forget her past, and not even a spectral lover can compare to the wicked delights she finds in Max's arms. Still, Viveca has a plan to exorcise both mischievous scoundrels. But she has a sneaking suspicion that her phantom of the bathtub will soon have to move over for a new man in the house.

by Lisa Childs


WAS HE HER SAVIOR OR HER WORST NIGHTMARE?

Ariel Cooper is about to marry her soul mate, but she has a secret. She can see ghosts.

For years Ariel’s resented her gift, believing it a curse. She’s been hiding it from her powerful, brooding fiancé, David, afraid that he wouldn’t understand. But now she has to tell him. Twenty years ago, she and her two sisters were separated to protect them from a man who had vowed revenge on the women in her family. And someone has resumed the hunt.

Ariel knows she must warn her sisters before it’s too late—the killer is closing in and his power is growing stronger. With David’s help, they begin the search. But the closer Ariel comes to finding her sisters, the more secretive he becomes. Can she trust the man she plans to spend eternity with? Or has he been waiting for the perfect moment to destroy her?

A DARK & STORMY NIGHT

 

by Anne Stuart

#702 - MORE THAN MEN mini series

The man had secrets...

Blindsided by a hurricane, Katie Flynn was seeking shelter from the storm - but all she found was a moody, broody recluse named O'Neal. Trapped with him in his house on a windswept cliff overlooking the wildly tossed sea, Katie tried to fight the feelings O'Neal awakened in her - both of sensuality and fear. She began to suspect that something haunted the tall, gray-eyed man's domain, something more than the wicked servants or family ghosts...something strange that only O'Neal himself could reveal.

SHADOWS OF STARDUST

by Lynn Kurland

Daydreaming of her wonderful castle, she imagined that it contained a handsome, brave knight --

Suddenly, her eyes flew open. She scrambled over her chair, looking with alarm at what was quivering in front of her, only an inch away from where her toes had dangled off the edge....

It was a sword. "I'll not miss my mark a second time." A deep voice grated from behind her. She whirled around. It was her knight. It was also her ghost.

Genevieve Buchanan inherited a castle -- and a ghost to go along with it. But Kendrick de Piaget was no typical ghost. He was a handsome and infuriatingly arrogant thirteenth-century knight. At first he wanted to frighten Genevieve, though she was more charmed than scared by his ghostly tricks. But when his thoughts turned to wooing instead, Genevieve had to face her greatest fear: falling in love.

MY HEART STOOD STILL
by Lynn Kurland

In a bleak, landlocked keep on the English moors, Iolanthe MacLeod dreams of the sea—and of a darkly handsome man to come rescue her. Centuries have passed, and she feels she has waited in vain. Until now.

Thomas McKinnon is used to attaining impossible heights, both in business and in the mountains he loves. But when the chance to restore a twelfth-century castle comes his way, he gamely takes hammer in hand and crosses the Atlantic, expecting to find nothing more interesting inside his new home than cobwebs and weeds. But in that ancient, crumbling castle, the fierce, restless spirit of a medieval Scottish woman lives on—a woman so haunting that he would do anything, go anywhere, risk everything to make her his forever . . .

But watching the castle's handsome new tenant, happiness was easy to imagine. Which made her all the more determined to drive him away. Alex made Serena burn to be flesh once more, to revel in a touch she'd once reviled. He made her dream that she could be saved, for there was no power greater than that of love, even one... Of Midnight Born.
