I am so honored to participate in the Paranormal Blog Hop. I write both paranormal romance and urban fantasy that are set in contemporary and realistic settings. Most of the time, there is an extensive historical component, though it is not historical fiction per se. For example, the Unfinished Business Series of Cape Cod paranormal romances blends Victorian linguistic and period detail with edgy paranormal elements. The novels follow the cast of sexy, colorful characters over two lifetimes. The Widow’s Walk was released in 2014, and the prequel, Breakwater Beach, will be released in 2016. I’m aiming to have the third and final novel in the Unfinished Business series, Storm Watch, out in 2017.
Mike and Liz Keeny are newlyweds, new parents, and the proprietors of the Barrett Inn, an 1875 Victorian on Cape Cod, which just happens to be haunted. By their own ghosts. The Inn had become an annex of Purgatory, putting Mike, Liz, and their infant son in danger. Selling the historic seaside bed and breakfast was the only answer, one that Liz and her own tortured specter refused to consider. Were they doomed to follow the same path that led to disaster in their previous lives? Was getting out, getting away, enough?
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 the hallway.
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 needling eased. Like an addict in the throes of withdrawal, just the promise of being up there, her spirit communing with the long lost sea captain, offered relief.
