Haunted Hearts is a 2019 RITA® Finalist! #RITAGH

I got “the call” today.  Haunted Hearts is a RITA® Finalist in the Paranormal Romance category!  This is big – like huge – and it hasn’t sunk in yet.  The RITA’s are the biggest awards in romance writing, and Haunted Hearts made the cut.

This was the proverbial story that sat under my bed for the last decade.  Longer than that, actually.  My first draft dates back to 2001.  The story went through many incarnations, based on feedback from several editors, until it was a tangled mess.  I opened the file in 2018 to look at it again, and suddenly I could see the path to untangle everything.  I took my story back and self-published it.

And, today, it was nominated for the highest honor in my book’s genre.

Fantastic Reviews for Haunted Hearts #bookreviews #bookrecommendations #romance

Haunted Hearts is getting a great response from readers.  Look at some things these reviewers had to say:

“I have read numerous good and great ghost stories and this one is one of the finest that I have ever had the pleasure to read.  I have read many romances and this one just captivates heart, mind, body and soul…  Haunted Hearts is a fantastic ghost story and a fantastic romance.  If it was possible, I would give this book 100 stars.” – 5++ stars, N.N. Light’s Book Heaven

I was honestly swept away by the plot – so much that whenever Officer Hardass and Callie were making goo-goo eyes at each other, that I wanted to be all, “Shush! Can’t you see there’s a mystery going on? Sex later, plot now.” Definitely a fun little adventure in the romance section” – 4 stars, Miranda Reads, #1 best reviewer, #11 most followed, and #9 top reviewer on Goodreads

HAUNTED HEARTS

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release:  October 3, 2018

Does a ghost from the past want the man of her future? 

Callie Thompson is thrilled when she inherits a house in the small town of Shadow Valley. The house is old and creaky, but she’s not afraid of hard work. Unfortunately, no matter how many repairs she makes, the strange noises won’t go away. Items disappear. Lights flicker. Footsteps echo down the hallway. Her nerves are soon so frayed that she resorts to calling the one person in town she hasn’t been able to get along with, bullheaded police chief Carter Landry.

Carter doesn’t have time to investigate things that go bump in the night—although, with Callie, the idea is tempting. He’s busy working with the governor’s task force on a major case and dealing with a rash of petty Halloween crimes. He knows that Callie’s house isn’t haunted… no matter what the town legend says. Still, when her distress call comes in, he hits the ground running. He may not believe in ghosts, but someone is intentionally scaring the sassy blond. And he doesn’t like it.

As the couple gives in to their mutual attraction, the strange occurrences in the house subside. But could Carter’s presence be the reason? Callie fears that her sexy cop may be the one the ghost has wanted all along.
