Poltergeists are scary to the living, whether their presence is a wisp of aura settling around a specific place or a dramatic interactive nuisance haunting a residence and its inhabitants. Ghost hunters are tuned in to the psychic parameters of the ghosts and able to assist the presences into the light and away from the earthly realm their spirits have been haunting. The task of guiding the spirits into the light isn't always easy, but itís the job of the local spook busting agency, Ghost Be Gone.
When Professor Peyton Cache purchased an old Victorian home a couple months ago,
he also got one pesky poltergeist thrown into the deal. With the opportunity to
win a highly advantageous grant looming, Peytonís plans to host a faculty dinner in his home
face serious threats by the continued intrusion of the cantankerous ghost. Calling Ghost Be Gone
is his only option; the future of his careerís research is riding on the ghost exterminatorís success.
Shock is the only description suiting Peyton and Kaci's mutual appraisal of each other. College history professors
are notoriously old, crusty, and boring - and Peyton is the exact opposite of all
those traits. Ghost exterminators are supposed to be eccentric heavyweight
middle-aged men, not the tall, thin, blonde bombshell that Kaci is. Granted, she
is a bit eccentric, but being a ghost hunter has to have some impact on that. All in all, two weeks of cohabitation
looks to be uniquely interesting in many unexpected and very exciting ways.
Kaci isnít pleased to be on the job; in fact, she's rather irritated about the whole thing. While Peyton
is drop-dead gorgeous and her own dream man come to life, reality is that the job
is only important for the money it will bring in. She and her father are both in hiding at their respective ghost extermination jobs while a crazed loan shark named Guido
hunts. Kaci isnít even the real exterminator - she only fixes the equipment for her
father. She hopes her training has really sunk in, because she has nowhere to run to if Peyton decides she
isnít fast enough in getting rid of his ghost. Unfortunately, Kaciís fear of ghosts
are pretty hard to hide.
Peyton isnít stupid; he realizes that something isnít right, but as the attraction between him and Kaci develops into a sizzling romance, complications arise with the poltergeist and his increased animosity. Time
is counting down to the faculty dinner, and chaos seem to reign supreme as trust is torn away and lives are threatened by the phantomís growing attachment.
This is a fun and sizzling story, light-hearted and filled with bits of simple humor
although the storyline itself is a true sci-fi romance guaranteed to please. The pleasant aspect of this novel is the mix of the fun paranormal angle without the violent, demonic, bloody extremes many
other authors take such a genre into.
