BOOK BLURB / SYNOPSIS

Someone’s trying to kill Deanna, but is it the ghosts she doesn’t believe in, the rich socialite who might be a murderess, or someone else with a beef against The Gilroy Hotel and Resort that Deanna has just been hired to manage? The Gilroy’s owners want the ghosts, or whoever is causing the trouble at the hotel eliminated, and they are pressuring Deanna to do the job as quickly as possible. Harry DeVeaux, paranormal investigator comes highly recommended to do the job and against Deanna’s better judgment, she hires him.

Although Deanna thinks Harry’s crazy for believing in ghosts and Harry thinks Deanna has a closed mind to the possibilities of ghosts and they highly annoy each other, sparks fly. Deanna can’t help but fantasize about Harry and inspired by a romance convention visiting her hotel, writes her fantasies in a private blog that Harry finds, hacks, and reads. Ooh la la!

EXCERPTS

It would also be a shame to let a private hotel room go to waste when it contained such a beautiful sexy woman, so he moved closer and leaned against the wall beside her, letting his breath tickle her neck as he gazed down at her. He lifted a strand of her silky hair and let it sift through his fingers. Her heady scent wafted up to him, making him want to bury himself in her. Was it cherries? Maybe apple blossoms? My heart almost gave out when your car went up in flames and I saw you thrown back. I was afraid you’d been hurtor worse.

Her breath caught audibly, and she worried her lower lip with her small, perfect teeth for a moment. Then she gazed up at him with sorrowful eyes. It must have reminded you of losing your wife.

Not for a minute. I was worried you were hurt. That I’d lose you. He traced the line of her jaw with the pad of his thumb and shivered when he felt her tremble. So she wasn’t immune to him. Good. Very good.

Her lashes fluttered and her irises grew dark. She shrank against the wall as if unsure what to do next. Then resolution gathered in her eyes. Oh! Well, uh, I should go. I’m sure I’ve been missed. A manager never rests. To his dismay, she ducked under his arm and escaped to the door. When she tried to turn the handle, however, it wouldn’t budge. Then she tried to turn the knob with both hands, pulling hard. Her eyes flashed fire. What the hell? Can you help me? I can’t get out.

Do you really have to go? Or do you just want to get away from me? Am I that repellant?

She looked as if she’d rather have fire ants crawl up her legs than answer his question.

Before she could respond, he jumped in. I have a confession.

She stopped trying to jar the door and her attention riveted on him, her forehead puckering. Did you do something I need to know about?

Drawing in a long, shuddering breath, he look heavenwards and crossed his fingers behind his back hoping she wouldn’t throw something at him, hoping she’d be okay with his admission. I found your blog and read it.

Paling, the blood fled from her flesh and her eyes looked like sooty coals against her face. Her gaze clashed with his and held. How did you find it? I used a pseudonym and I put it on privacy settings.

He screwed up his lips, and scrubbed his hand over his face, preparing to tell more painful truths. I’m a bit of a hacker and I like to research the people I’m working with. Not sure she’d be receptive to his theory, he left out the part that he thought the ghosts led him to her sight. He thought they were closet romantics. He wouldn’t be surprised if they’d locked them into the room now to force them into some alone time together.

When a tsunami of emotions flitted across her face he tried to read them. Fury. Embarrassment. Lust?

You investigated me? You read my private musings?

You wrote about me? In some very intimate ways. At least I presume it was me since you used my name. He fixed her with a piercing gaze. Did you?

Can these two figure out what is going on at the hotel before the threats actually kill someone and will the heat spark up between these two? The characters where well thought and full of surprises. I enjoyed the plot the author created because she mixed danger, paranormal,  and romance all within this novel. It was thoroughly well written and is original.  Read Spooky Sojourn to find your answers and more.
