Can a reincarnated bad girl find love the second time around?
Haley knows coming back to life will be tricky. She has to catch the Scarlet A killer and claim her soulmate Crispin, all without changing the future. No sooner does she agree when her guardian angel smacks her into the dying body of the killer’s latest victim and she tingles back to life.
Crispin T. St. Giles, a journalist working on the Scarlet A Killer story, is really a Dom deep inside. When he interviews Haley, the killer’s feisty latest victim, he's hit by a crazy itch to take her home and then turn her over his knee. When the sexy brunette begs him to do just that, only professional ethics keep him from touching her.
The killer strikes again and Crispin comes to Haley's rescue in the nick of time, whisking her away to his cabin to keep her safe. After a sultry night fulfilling all their kinky fantasies they're both in too deep to walk away. But with the killer after them, and Haley's guardian angel threatening to recall her for breaking the rules, their passion may be unfulfilled.
The naughty, matchmaking Fallen Angel from Once Haunted is back, and this time, it's kinky.
Looking for a sizzling hot erotica with fantastic characters that are both witty and sexy? Then Twice Haunted is just the story you’re looking for.
Haley has been given a second chance at life, as well as the opportunity to claim her soul mate. She just has to figure out a way to stay alive, nail her killer, and protect the man that doesn’t know she’s destined to rock his world. Crispin might not understand her attraction, or how she knows so much about him, but she’s determined to show him how fun time alone can be while contemplating her next move.
Crispin thinks Haley is beautiful and undeniable – even if she is a bit off in the head. He contributes her strange behavior to stress. After all, not everyone is lucky enough to survive the clutches of a killer on the loose. But when the things Haley predicts begin to occur, Crispin knows that she is aware of far more than she’s sharing. Now, he has to trust her, love her, and keep her alive.
Talk about a unique story that hooks you from the start and doesn’t let go! Twice Haunted is, without a doubt, something wholly unique. I’ve never read a story in which the heroine is placed into an unknown body, essentially placing her soul into the vessel, in order to have a second chance at life. It’s got to be shocking enough to wake in a body that is currently being attacked, but to look in the mirror and stare into the eyes of an absolute stranger…can you say awkward? Fortunately, Haley is equal parts snark and vixen, so the event is laced with just enough humor to keep it light and engaging.
The addition of the serial murderer keeps things tense, as do the twists and turns along the way, but it’s her relationship with Crispin that will ensure you keep reading. From the moment they meet in the hospital, you know it’s only a matter of time before they cave to their desires. Their chemistry is combustive, and kept me wriggling in my seat. He’s got a dominant streak, and she’s more than willing to submit to him however, and whenever, he desires.
The paranormal elements are ones I’ve not seen before, and I couldn’t wait to learn more about Haley, her powers, and what would finally happen when she came face to face with the man responsible for her death in her previous life. She can’t reveal who she is, what she knows, or change the future, so it will take all of her resources, wit, and all the help she can get from the powers that be to aid her along the way.
Fans of unique paranormal stories will thoroughly enjoy Twice Haunted, and should be sure to put the title onto their TBR list. The material is well written, the pace is brisk, and you’ll be sure to enjoy it from start to finish.
