Two men: one living, one dead, and both vying for her love. Camellia Stafford has never been alone in her room. For twenty years, she’s been engaged in a fierce power struggle with her bedroom’s previous tenant, Frank DeLuca, the ghost trapped in the light fixture above her bed. Caustic and cranky, Frank has one soft spot—Cam. Over the years, their feelings for one another have evolved from grudging friendship to an enduring love that burns white-hot until Frank puts his feelings for Cam on ice. When she suffers the loss of her beloved father, Cam returns home to say good-bye, and confront her feelings for Frank. She finds an unexpected shoulder to lean on in neighbor, Bradley Mitchum. Cam falls hard and fast for the handsome ad man’s charming smile and passion-ate nature, but Brad’s easy-going exterior masks a steely backbone tempered by adversity. Now Cam must choose— Is her heart strong enough to determine which dream could lead to a love that will last a lifetime?

Review: The blurb from this book gives you so much information. Before reading this book, I had only read one other book that was considered “romance” with a ghost in it. So, I kinda took this book as a challenge. Because there is NO WAY a second book of this type, could be hot . . right? I was so wrong. This book was scorching. I picked it up and found myself unable to put it down. I honestly do not want to give a single piece of this story away. So let me say this: this book is going to have you seeing ghost in a whole new light. No more translucent, sheet covered, chain carrying, hovering in the air beings. We’re talking Mohawk sporting, black nails, with rocker band t-shirts . . you know, the type your mother warned you about?!

A great book that packs a punch and when you finish, you may just find yourself flicking on the lights trying to find your own Frank.
