How cool would it be to be pals with a ghost? What if she grew up with that ghost in her room. Would she have fallen in love with him like her mother did? I also liked the idea of a tortured young hero trapped between worlds.
Here’s an excerpt from Paramour:
The scent was back, flooding her senses with the relief of homecoming. She wondered if he knew how many hours she’d spent at the men’s cologne counter sniffing samples, trying to place the fragrance. After twenty years of friendship, endless fights, and one unforgettable kiss, she’d wondered if she finally earned the right to ask questions.
“Are you really here?” she whispered, afraid she’d scare him away.
Their eyes met, and she tumbled into the depths of his dark gaze. Cam knew if she didn’t take the chance this time, she may never have another.
“What cologne do you wear?”
Frank’s eyes narrowed with typical caution. “Polo.”
“Huh. Smells different on you.”
His thick eyebrows rose, and a sardonic smile twitched his lips. “Might be because I’m dead.”
Cam swallowed hard and sat up. “I’m glad you’re here.”
“Welcome home. I’m sorry.”
She shook her head, forcing a small, flirtatious smile. “Did you miss me?”
“Every damn day.”
“Then don’t leave me again.”
Frank raised his hand. His fingers twitched. She could feel heat radiating from his palm. Those warm fingers curved along the contour of her cheek. “I’ll make sure you’re never alone.”
Cam smiled, smoothing her palm over the rough hairs on the back of his hand. “With you around, how could I be?”
By day, Margaret Ethridge is buried in spreadsheets. At night she pens tales of people tangling up the sheets. The product of a charming rogue and a shameless flirt, you only have to scratch the surface of this mild-mannered married lady to find a naughty streak a mile wide.
Margaret pens tales of true-to-life women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and has been known to dabble a bit in the paranormal. She also writes steamy erotic romance under the pen name Maggie Wells.
