The Depot

Haunted Depot: The Ghost Curse

Kristy K. James
Free sample

It's been nine months since her grandfather was murdered and Kate Proctor has finally returned to Hemisphere. Her plans to sell the properties she inherited are put on hold when she finds herself face-to-face with a ghost from the past. Literally. A ghost. And there's more than one.

While trying to decide what to do about the twelve very bored, very dead people haunting her depot, Kate finds herself the target of someone who wants her gone. Will vandalism, a fire, and another spirit that may mean her harm send her running in fear. Or will she dig her heels in and stay?

Dear Friend,

Consider this your welcome to Hemisphere. You might think your presence here is an accident. Maybe you believe you just stumbled onto our website, liked what you saw, and decided to check us out. Or that you simply found yourself here while on a leisurely drive.

Well, you'd be wrong.

It was fate.

Yes, you're here because fate led you here. Because you are meant to be here. Why? That remains to be seen. Maybe you'll wind up calling Hemisphere your home. Maybe we're just a stop in the road on your way to somewhere else. Maybe you'll remember your time with us. Most do not.

One thing is for sure though, you’ll never find another place like Hemisphere. It's one-of-a-kind.

Hemisphere is a unique location, steeped in mysticism. All are welcome within our boundaries. We'd like to tell you there's a simple explanation for the things you may see or experience during your stay. A little theatrical drama, if you will. But it wouldn't be true. Here in Hemisphere, the things that go bump in the night are very real.

If you decide to stay past sundown, we encourage you to read the Visitors Orientation Packet. The warning about "calamity or death by misadventure?" It's not a joke.

It would behoove you to follow the advice inside. We also suggest traveling in groups, or hiring a local “guide” to show you around our beautiful town.

Common sense should tell you to use caution when hiking in any unfamiliar area. The forests and cliffs surrounding Hemisphere are beautiful. They are also home to a variety of wild creatures found nowhere else on earth. Don’t be caught unaware. It should go without saying – stay out of the woods and off the cliffs after dark.

Again, welcome to Hemisphere. Fate has led you to our area. What happens next is up to you. Choose wisely.

About the author

Kristy K. James' first goal in life was to work in law enforcement, until the night she called the police to check out a scary noise in her yard. Realizing that she might someday have to investigate scary noises in yards just as dark as hers if she continued on that path, she turned to her other favorite love...writing. Since then her days have been filled with being a mom and reluctant zookeeper, creating stories, and looking for trouble in her kitchen.


Kristy is the author of the Coach's Boys series, the Casteloria Royals series, Haunted Depot: The Ghost Curse series, and more.

After receiving the tragic news that her grandfather has been murdered, Kate Proctor readies herself to go back to the only place she's ever called home. To the only place she's ever felt loved. To the place that hides a long forgotten secret.

What do you get a bunch of dead people for Christmas? That's the question that plagues Kate Proctor as she seeks to give the ghosts she inherited from her grandfather a holiday they'll never forget. She's determined to make it happen though, even as they continue getting the depot ready for opening day.

But it's hard to keep secrets when she's being guarded round the clock.

Still… Miracles and magic always happen at Christmastime and she doesn't know anyone who deserves it more than this special bunch of people. Besides, it's Hemisphere. Anything can happen – and something always does.

Running isn’t always the answer…
When a tragedy rocks Abigail Keane’s world, she only wants three things. To run as far from what happened as fast as she can. To reevaluate her life and the choices she’s made. To spend time with the nephew she hasn’t seen in over year. What she didn’t plan on was butting heads with a doctor who rubs her wrong from day one.

It’s going to be a long summer…
When a pretentious headmistress arrives in Casteloria, Nolan Campbell can’t help but hope she cuts her vacation plans short. In fact, nothing would make him happier than to see her on the next plane leaving the island. But when a dark, heartbreaking secret comes to light, he begins to see the real woman hiding beneath the icy facade. Can he help her heal without risking his heart in the process?

Filled with romance, intrigue, secrets, and maybe even some danger, all Royal Sweethearts Romance novels are complete with no cliffhanger endings.

Some lines just aren't meant to be crossed… 
Briannon Gallagher-Hughes is everything a man could ever hope for in a woman. Beautiful, intelligent, kind, and loyal. A man would be blessed to win her heart—and he knows it's his for the taking. But Fin was hired to protect the royal family, not to fall in love with his king's daughter. 

Her patience has finally run out… 
The moment they met, Briannon knew Fin was the man she wanted to spend her life with, but his stubborn pride has kept them apart for fifteen long years. Now, with her biological clock ticking, she realizes it's time to let go of her dreams—before she's too old to have the children she so desperately desires.

Filled with romance, intrigue, secrets, and maybe even some danger, all Royal Sweethearts Romance novels are complete with no cliffhanger endings.

A murdered groom. An unexpected baby. A vengeful father. Can the killer’s brother save the day?

Raised in foster homes, when Jess Bentley promised, ‘til death do us part,’ she envisioned many happy decades building a family with Frank. But a desperate drug addict in a dark parking lot ended those dreams before the honeymoon was over. Convinced the empty place in her heart will never heal, she’s ready to give up—until she discovers their brief marriage resulted in a surprise pregnancy.

All Dan Mulholland wants following his brother’s arrest is to relieve the guilt that’s tearing him up inside. He is determined to help the widowed bride in any way he can, especially when he learns she’s carrying her dead husband’s child … and her wealthy father-in-law intends to take the baby.

First in the Coach’s Boys series, The Daddy Pact is a sweet, poignant romance about love lost and new, unexpected beginnings. It’s a heartwarming story of selflessness in the face of tragedy, friendships, and laughter—with a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

Welcome to Charlotte, hometown of the Coach’s Boys romance series. Settle back, put your feet up, and enjoy your visit. Who knows? You may want to stay for a while. Or forever.

DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND
 
My name is Kvothe.
 
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
 
You may have heard of me.
 
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.  

 
Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle:
 
“The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He’s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.”
—George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire
 
“Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous.” 
—Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara
 
"It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words."
—Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning author of Earthsea
 
"The characters are real and the magic is true.” 
—Robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin’s Apprentice
 
"Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description." 
—Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn
