This blog is my outlet to share my love of books, my reviews, author interviews and other book related subjects. I primarily read Contemporary Romance, Erotica and Mystery. I have began the journey into Dark Romance, Horror, Motorcycle Club and Sci-Fi genres. I love the places you can go while reading, become a different person for a moment, just being caught up in the fabulous story unfolding. I hope my wide range of books helps you discover a new favorite author.

Liz Levine is convinced her recently deceased husband is
engineering the sequence of events that propels her into a new life. But it’s
sea captain Edward Barrett, the husband that died over a century ago, who has
returned to complete their unfinished business. Edward’s lingering presence
complicates all her plans and jeopardizes a new relationship that reawakens her
passion for life and love. What are Captain Barrett’s plans for his wife, and
for the man who is the new object of her affections?
Liz opened the lid of a large trunk affixed with shipping labels
dated from 1865 to 1875. Inside, neatly folded, were women’s clothes, hats, and
shoes. She examined a night chemise that resembled a long slip with lace trim.
“This is English linen, Irish lace though."

in the corner.
"You won’t be findin’ this clothin’ in the Sea Captain’s
Thrift Shop,” Mae hung the dresses in the closet.
They arranged the intimate garments in the antique dresser. Liz
left the shoes and hats in the trunk and pushed it against the wall.
“How could no one have noticed these for so many years?” said
Liz. “It’s too damp up here to leave them out. I'll donate them to the Brewster

the closet door. “The sachet kept it fresh and the wrinkles will come out in

Mike and Liz Keeny are newlyweds, new parents, and the
proprietors of the Barrett Inn, an 1875 Victorian on Cape Cod, which just

Silk rustled as she ran her hands over the dress. The lavender
scent deepened as Elisabeth swirled around inside, Her mind went numb as the
ghost took control. She slipped out of her clothes and stood naked in front of
the mirror. She put up her hair, preening for her husband, before she stepped
into the middle of the deep green skirts and pulled them up over her waist,
slipped her arms into the sleeves, and twisted them behind her back to fasten
the buttons. She used the buttonhook to do up the shoes, then peered out into
Liz bundled the sweat suit into her arms, along with the soap
and paper goods, and hurried to the attic door. It wasn't until she placed her
hand on the banister and started up the steep staircase to the roof that Elisabeth's
