About the Book
When medium Karly Matthews agrees to move into a haunted inn, she’s not sure what’s more dangerous, the ghost or the sexy innkeeper she tries to resist. She’s can’t deny the intense rush of desire she feels every time he’s near. When she agrees to embark on a no-strings-attached relationship, she finds herself thrust into a world of mind blowing pleasures. Now she must face the aching truths of her past.

Hotel heir Thayne Harper has a laser-like focus on success that doesn’t include the help of his family. He’s always been the black sheep, living in the shadow of his dead brother. His dreams are put to the test when a supernatural entity threatens to ruin everything. The one bright spot is the woman who intrigues his mind and heats his blood.

If only he can convince her that, despite his bad boy ways, he can change for the good. Her love becomes his only salvation. Passion burns white-hot as a dark threat looms. The ghost doesn’t want them to be together and sets her sights on Thayne, luring him to a place that goes beyond death. Will Karly be able to save him before it’s too late?

Read an Excerpt

All Karly wanted to do was fill the dark, empty place inside of her with lightness and passion, but what would it cost her in the end? She pushed the nagging thought aside because right now she wanted him so much, she ached. “Make love to me, Thayne. I need you inside of me.”
His eyes filled with desire. “Are you sure that’s what you want?” She became aware of the heat from his body and the quick throb of her pulse.
She’d deal with consequences in the morning. She needed to get lost—to forget, even for a little while. “Touch me.” She placed his hand under her robe, on top of her breast. He kneaded her flesh and her nipple peaked under his caress. His lips sealed over hers, stealing her breath. When his tongue tangled with hers, she moaned into his mouth. He tasted sweet like brandy and she couldn’t get enough.
Her fingers dug into his back as he slid open her robe and rubbed his cock against her bare sex. He trailed open mouthed kisses down her throat and sucked on her shoulder. Heat pulsed through her body. His tongue was burning hot as it closed over her nipple, making her gasp.
“You’re mine,” he murmured and continued his assault on her other nipple, flicking his tongue over and over again until she thought she’d come apart from the sensation alone. She didn’t want to think too much into his words, guessing they were probably said in the heat of the moment, but still. Her heart leapt and she couldn’t deny the intense thrill pulsing through her veins.
His lips found hers again and he plundered her mouth. When she pulled away to catch her breath, their eyes met. She was expecting to see desire and was taken aback by the raw emotion that he wasn’t even trying to hide. He lifted her and carried her to the bed, pressing her into the mattress. “I want to make you come for me, baby.” 
“I can’t wait anymore.” He crawled down her body, his lips trailing fire along her skin. He licked her belly button and stopped to blow on her inner thigh. His hair brushing against her flesh was its own provocation, heightening her desire. 
By the time he glided his tongue over her cleft, she was desperate for his mouth on her throbbing clit. She moved her hips, compelled to rock into him. “Please.” Did he want her to beg?
 “I want to make you writhe with anticipation.” He dipped his nose into her sex and inhaled. “I love your scent.” His tongue plunged into her, circling her clit over and over again, his mind blowing oral skills driving her insane. When she didn’t think she could take anymore, his thumb glided across her folds, creating a delicious friction. The excitement that had been building was like a live wire, making her shiver. Her body tightened and then she came apart, vibrating from pleasure. 
“I think you enjoyed that.” He moved up her body and kissed her again, a sensual assault, a claiming of her body and soul. She tasted herself on his lips and it was wildly erotic. 
By the time he pulled a condom from the box on the nightstand, slipping it over his rigid cock with agonizing slowness, she was shaking with anticipation. “Thayne.”
“You’re so ready for me.” His cock brushed against her entrance, teasing her clit. His low moan reverberated through every cell in her body.
When she lifted her hips in invitation, he plunged inside of her. “You feel so good.” His voice was throaty, surrounding them like a velvet cloak.
Pleasure clawed at her and Karly was ready to be consumed. Thayne plunged his cock in and out of her with wild thrusts. He hit her vulva and her clit from every angle. She’d never felt so completely possessed; mentally, physically. 
He glided his tongue inside of her mouth, mimicking the movement of his cock. Thayne was pushing deeper inside of her to a wild, untouched place she kept hidden. With every languid kiss and thrust of his cock, he loosened the tight rein of control she kept over her body as well as her heart.
