GHOSTS DON'T WEAR SILK STOCKINGS
Brianna Halloway aches for marriage and happily ever after but what she gets is one smokin' hot demon who promises immortality, a moody ghost who complains about her choices, and an ex-boyfriend who refuses to drop dead. Ghosts Don't Wear Silk Stockings is a paranormal suspense novel with a light-hearted approach to dating in a world where it feels like everything goes wrong. It is a bit of Stephen King meets Janet Evanovich and is targeted to the 20-something and 30-something female audience.
Dating to Brianna means finding out the man of her dreams isn't actually human and the family she believes is nothing short of ordinary actually harbors a secret curse from the days of the Salem witch trials which returns
to haunt Brianna just like the ghost named Greer who shows up at every inopportune moment. Brianna wants to say yes to Dan's proposal but first she'll have to endure losing her job, her apartment, and running from the violent ex-boyfriend that has returned from the dead with a vendetta to make her pay for choosing Dan over him. In the process, she'll learn that she actually holds the key to stopping two evil people from unleashing a flurry of demons into the human world.
FIRST 150 WORDS:
Dan Parker was six feet three inches and his own brand of delicious evil. Brianna Halloway had fallen for the wrong guy before. She'd been mixed up with married men, tangled in deceptive webs of womanizers and she'd even come across a few men that didn't know the proper way to treat a lady. But never in all her years had she come across anything supernatural. Dan was a first in that department.
He lit a cigarette and gave her a sultry stare. He was still sitting in her bed, a sheet pulled just high enough to cover a perfect set of toned legs. His chiseled chest sprouted dark hair mingled with the occasional grey sprout that gave him an air of distinction. His dark Mediterranean skin echoed memories of pictures she'd seen in a magazine of gods. He was handsome; there was little doubt of that. He was more than handsome, he was
drop dead gorgeous.
