Lori Brighton has published two historical romance novels and this book was her first in the paranormal romance genre. This may be her first in this genre but she doesn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed this book and I’m excited to have found a new and up coming author that does great work.
Ashley inherits an old pub from her aunt and moves there hoping to find out what happened to her dad. She has a gift to be able to see and talk to ghosts. When she was growing up her mother thought she was mentally disturbed when she claimed to see ghosts. So her whole life no one believed her. She even spent time in a hospital for the mentally ill. It’s obvious that these scares run deep in this character.
After she moves in she soon finds out that it is not only haunted but by several different ghost and something else. Then Cristian walks into her life and she’s attracted to him but also hates him. Cristian has special talents of his own and wants to buy the pub from her but she refuses and he ends up renting a room in the pub. Ashley is not happy about being tricked into renting a room to Cristian because now she has to live with him. He not only makes her angry but also makes her hot in a different sense.
The chemistry between the two is really intense even though she is in denial. This book is filled with sexual tension which I love. It takes them a while to come to terms with their feelings for each other making their attraction that much hotter. They eventually end up having to work together to solve both their problems and what an adventure it is.
This book was beautifully written. I never felt bored or overwhelmed by facts. It is full of lust, love, action and suspense. You will fall in love with all the characters in the story. I would highly recommend this book. I think that this is a perfect book to read for Halloween. It’s got ghost, a haunted house, poltergeists and it’s a little creepy. You should really try reading Lori’s book, you will not be disappointed.
