Ghosts, Inc. – where the paranormal is normal!

Paranormal researcher Tesla Dane has never known her father.  She doesn't even know who he is!  The only connection she's ever had to him is a huge, gold gilt mirror he once owned where shadows seem to move deep within its silvery surface in the dark of night. So she's more than a little surprised when, one night, a sinfully handsome man emerges from those very shadows - a man who has the power to turn Tesla's world upside down.

Inventor Alexander Hartfield had been working for Tesla's father in a parallel universe since the early 1900s.  But now, The Inventor, as her father is affectionately known, has gone missing.  Alex hopes that by bringing the beautiful Tesla to Avalon, she can coax her father out of hiding - especially since the man has never met the daughter who bears his name.  He also hopes that he can keep his hands off of Tesla.  Because she's the boss' daughter.  And Alex isn't quite who he claims to be.

This novel, the fifth in the "Ghosts, Inc." series, is approximately 83,000 words in length and is written in the modern, adult romance style, and is paranormal in nature.  It may not be appropriate for younger audiences.  It does not contain vampires, werewolves or other such creatures and instead focuses on more traditional paranormal phenomenon.

Ghosts, Inc. – where the paranormal is normal!

It’s the holiday season and to the world at large, Mia Thorpe is living her dream.  As the head of her own paranormal investigation agency, Ghosts, Inc., she seems to have everything she’s ever wanted, including a lucrative television contract with the Alternate Reality Channel for a new series featuring her investigators and her ex-lover working by her side.  However, Mia is also harboring a terrible secret, one that could destroy everything if it ever came to light.

Tim Hawthorne has loved Mia since they were teenagers, well, at least until she disappeared without a trace.  When she mysteriously returned several years ago, asking him to join her newly formed ghost hunting team, she was cold and remote, even angry.  But how could he turn away from the only woman he’d ever loved?  He couldn’t and it’s been pure torture every day since, working side by side with her but never being able to crack her icy shell.

Then, one frigid December day, Albert Holdsteadt appears at the Ghosts, Inc. offices, asking for Mia’s help.  He needs to find his granddaughter before her kidnappers sell her for their own illegal purposes.  Or worse.  Shamed by her fears and goaded by Tim, Mia reluctantly takes on the case, knowing that once she uses her paranormal abilities he will be able to find her and she’ll have to face her past.  But if she confesses everything, will Tim still care about her or will she destroy the last good thing in her life?


Josh Winston hasn't exactly had an easy time of it in recent months.  Some of the decisions he's had to make during his temporary tenure as acting-president of Ghosts, Inc. have been life or death - literally - and for a man who makes his living seeing auras, that's saying something!   Now, however, his old boss has returned from her honeymoon and his life is smooth sailing once again.  Even if he's currently being followed around by a television crew hoping to make him into the newest ghost-hunting reality star.  And even if he feels so off-balance that he doesn't even recognize himself in the mirror any longer.  Things will return to normal.  They have to.  Anything else is unacceptable.  Especially for a man used to being the strong and stable one of the organization.

Accountant Regina Cantor has been happily living with a ghost in her house for well over a year.  In fact, the ghost even seems to be taking care of her, turning on lights and generally being helpful and protective.  Until one night when it's clear that something has changed and that Regina's ghost isn't quite so friendly any longer.  In fact, it's downright dangerous.

Seeking help for her little "ghost problem," Regina turns to GI for a quick and easy solution, and immediately, Josh can tell that she's had a brush with a very different kind of ghost, one that's far more evil than any he's ever seen before.  Complicating matters is the intense attraction that sparks between him and Regina whenever they're in the same room.  Can they possibly work together to find out who or what is behind the nasty entity now haunting Regina's house?  And can Regina's love help to heal whatever is broken inside Josh before it's too late for him to be anything other than the bitter, remote man he's quickly becoming?


A New York Times bestseller!

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... 

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy and should be read after Ruthless King. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
