Alex Dark, archeologist and wanderer, thinks picking up a creepy Victorian mansion in Niagara Falls is just a charming side venture--pick it up for a dollar, flip it, and head off to the next dig. Who could have predicted she would find a decades-old mystery, vengeful spirits, and a sexy high femme librarian and ghost hunter to help her solve both?
Cross My Heart is hella charming and rather steamy, with Trudy Strange, rockabilly in Halloween dresses and a hot-pink Ghostbusting jumpsuit the perfect love interest for a paranormal romance. Alex, expecting to stay a mere two weeks, meets strange townspeople, a classy medium, and discovers the latent psychic ability of her own adorable nephew--while doing her best to reunite the spirits of the house's previous mistress and her lover. Deliciously creepy, sexy, and romantic by turns, this is everything I wanted in a dark and stormy night read. Natalie, I'd love to see them get a series!
