A Babe In Ghostland by Lisa Cach


A Babe In Ghostland by Lisa Cach:

Megan Barrows has retired from a brief career as a ghost-busting phychic and now uses her sixth sense to fill her Seattle antiques store with objects with happy pasts. After once nearly having the soul sucked out of her by a maleovlent spirit, she prefers a quiet life.

Case Lambert is a real estate prospector who restors old houses, than sells them for profit. He has just bought a dilapidated manison so amazing that he wants to keep it for himself, but the house appears to be haunted. Seriously haunted. A few inquiries lead him to Megan Barrows.

Megan at first refuses to help, but Case is a master of persuasion. Moving into the mansion, they discover that one of the ghosts has a thing for Case–and there may be even more amorous spirits inside this veritable paranormal vortex. But it soon becomes clear that no one–dead or alive–can stop Megan and Case from ending up in each other’s arms….

isbn: 1-4165-4116-0

In the second hilarious and sexy novel from author Gwyn Cready, a divorcée suffering from “carnal deprivation” has a racy one-night stand with one of literature’s most irresistible heroes — and learns that you really can’t judge a book by its cover.

Mr. Darcy just isn’t Flip Allison’s style. She prefers novels with hot sex on the bathroom sink to the mannerly, high-tension longing of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. That is, until she pays a visit to Madame K, who promises a therapeutic massage with an opportunity to “Imagine Yourself in Your Favorite Book.” Somehow, on the way to a sizzling sink-top session with a Venetian Adonis, Flip lands right in the middle of Regency England — and dangerously close to handsome Mr. Darcy. So close, in fact, that she discovers a side of him even Jane Austen couldn’t have imagined.

Waking from her massage, Flip is on top of the world and ready for her upcoming book club — that is, until she notices a new scene in which Darcy and spunky heroine Lizzy Bennet are arguing over…Flip Allison? Her rapturous liaison with Darcy has had disastrous consequences for Austen’s characters — not to mention millions of Pride and Prejudice fans! Flip has twenty-four hours to put the story back on course, and Magnus Knightley, a sexy but imperious scholar whose brooding good looks and infuriating arrogance are decidedly Darcy-like, is the only one who can help. The only problem is, Flip can’t keep her hands off him, either….

Wounded while on a risky intelligence mission behind enemy lines in Spain during the war against Napoleon, British Captain Richard C. Drayton returns to England to recuperate. While staying with his sister, he meets his young niece’s new temporary governess, Rachel Maitland Ross. This enigmatic woman has charmed the entire household, but Richard suspects there is more to her story than he has been told and of course, there is. Abrams is equally adept at writing action-filled scenes that illuminate the dangers of intelligence work during the Napoleonic Wars as she is in writing poignant, romantic scenes between her hero and heroine. With its complex, nuanced characters and polished writing, Abrams’s debut romance is superb.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag comes this powerful novel of passion, heartbreak, and redemption—a story that celebrates our capacity to love one time, for all time, even in the face of adversity and change.

They say that each of us becomes an entirely new person every seven years.

Seven years ago baseball player Jace Cooper left her without a second thought or the chance to share the life-changing secret she swore she’d keep from him forever. Now he was back, wanting both her help and a second chance. Becca hadn’t changed, and she didn’t believe Jace had either, but as she helped him repair his broken body and his fractured past, she would find she was wrong on both counts. The only thing that had stayed the same was the most important thing of all—and now suddenly time was running out.
