SHADES OF SCARLET
Paranormal experts Eve and Lucien Thorpe are finally married and enjoying life together. Then Eve decides she wants to have a baby and sets some stringent, if not impossible, rules to get them pregnant.
When a call comes to investigate an old confederate mansion, Lucien jumps at the chance, but Eve refuses to be left behind and even drags her friend Daisy along for some light matchmaking. But the case quickly turns as they discover the ghosts of the mansion are bent on murder. Eve and Lucien face an additional challenge when Lucien's friend O'Hara arrives with the son Lucien never knew about.
In the last story of this dramatic trilogy, Eve and Lucien face their greatest challenges yet, as they work to bring justice to victims of the Civil War and must find a place in their hearts for an orphaned boy. Gentle readers may be disturbed by the female specters' accounts of severe abuse suffered at the hands of soldiers. VERY SENSUAL (Aug., 320 pp., $5.99)
