Lost Souls Series Bk 1
Jessica Coltrane is a diehard sceptic who believes ghosts and paranormal activity are nothing more than a figment of an overactive imagination. That is until she finds herself locked inside a haunted house with the enigmatic paranormal investigator C.J. Dowling.
Born with the ability to see and speak to the dead, C.J. Dowling thought investigating a haunted house would be a job like many others. He’s prepared for anything—except smart and sexy Jessica.
Working together in close quarters, C.J. and Jessica discover it isn’t only negative tension between them but sexual as well. Giving in to their desires seems like a good idea until they wake and find the spirits thought otherwise. They are trapped with the ghost of a child long forgotten, an amorous entity threatening Jessica, and a powder keg of a spine-tingling mystery that might just be better left buried.

Jessica worked as a writer on fluff pieces that said haunted places were a joke. CJ was a medium and was called in to help the deceased move on if he could. He and his affluent family were at odds because of his abilities and their doubts of it. Jessica and CJ knew each other from working but when they were assigned the same house to work, things really heated up both with the spiritual world and the intimate worlds on more than one plane. This fun and exciting adventure takes Jessica and CJ on a roller coaster of a ride as they uncover the secrets of their assignment while discovering parts of a disturbing past that is too close to home. They experience danger, intrigue, ghostly suitors, rejection, fear and an intense love. Fun read
Samantha Dowling sees ghosts. As much as she hates her gift, she can’t ignore the spirit of a murdered young girl who haunts her dreams. As she digs into the death, she learns she’s not the only missing child in the city. And no one seems to be doing anything about it. Running into the very sexy Ethan Montgomery at his bookstore where she’d doing her research adds a whole new element to the mix.
From the first moment Ethan Montgomery sees Sam, he knows she’s meant to be his. Unfortunately, his soon-to-be ex-wife Gwen is determined to bring Ethan down any way she can, and his attraction to Sam is an opening she won’t pass up.
Despite her interference, Sam and Ethan’s romance blossoms. In secret. But sneaking around isn’t as easy as they thought when others discover their relationship.
And when Sam learns the identity of the murderer, it puts her in their crosshairs. Unless Ethan can get to her in time, their romance will have a deadly end.

This book really takes a fun paranormal twist to it and mixes it with an enticing mystery. Sam really does hate her gift (and isn’t scared to show it), but I liked how she really couldn’t help herself from helping the little girl. The fact that she fell for Ethan was just topping on the cake. I had a fun time reading it
