Blurb: Sometimes love is stronger than death.
Former foster child Gabriel Jacobs is determined to make something of his life. Easygoing and more comfortable in a pair of old sweats than the Brooks Brothers suits he will have to wear when he finishes his law degree, Gabriel is also a naïve romantic looking for love. That turns out to be a problem when the ghost of Adrien Beauchene, the son of a French plantation owner, makes an appearance in the house Gabriel just moved into. Adrien is convinced Gabriel is the reincarnation of his slave turned lover, a man he has spent 160 years waiting for.
Before long, Adrien gains control of Gabriel. He vows not to be parted from his love again, even if that means Gabriel must join him in the spirit world. But Gabriel’s best friend, Scott, won’t give up without a fight. He enlists the help of a gypsy witch and twin warlocks Jaivyn and Jaquan to keep Gabriel safe. As Adrien tightens his grip, Gabriel begins to fade, and Jaivyn grows desperate. He and Gabriel just met—Jaivyn can’t lose him now….
Review: This story has adventure, action, humor, and plot twists.
A ghost has haunted Gabriel’s new house in the name of lost love for over 160 years. Gabriel is the spitting image of the ghost’s lover, so the ghost starts to drain him dry, and is prepared to pull him into the afterlife so they can be together.
Gabriel’s friends: Scott, widower Mel, and gypsy Natosha all try to help. Then two powerful warlocks get involved. Prophecy is a recurring theme, and you aren’t sure who to give your attention to.
This story has got magic, intrigue, witches, ghosts, and lovers, to name just a few. Be warned, this is a HFN, but possibly the author is considering a sequel.
So if you want action and plot twists with your paranormal read, this is the one for you.
