"Passionate 18th century ghost bring 20th century trouble"
18th century ghost, Andrew Domine has haunted the Inn of
the Green Dragon reliving history and spending 4
nights with any black haired Elizabeth [Bess] who stayed
that room. Mystery writer E. Mariah Summers was visiting
England and had first hand experience of this ghostly
lover. Later she moved to England and through matchmaking
friends, meets Dartmoor financier Andrew, a descendant of
the ghost. Circumstances and misunderstandings destroy
their budding relationship. Plots and intrigues by
Andrew's enemy draw both him and Mariah together to fight
for their lives and a second chance at love.
The author ties the many segments of the plot together in
an engaging fashion. I enjoyed the ghost being ancestors
instead of dealing with reincarnation and seeing them
through to the end of the tale. The secondary characters
all have full love lives and focus within the story. I
think this would appeal to those who want a spicier
contemporary version of Lynn Kurland's ghost stories.
This is an interesting suspense with randy ghost and
outspoken characters. I must admit that 'modern erotic
romance' is spicier than I usually read. The seduction
scenes in this book definitely rate the erotic label; so I
would not recommend it to the more conservative reader.
Sexual attitudes and phrases were distracting on
I found myself overlooking 'modern' rough language that I
found unromantic but not objectionable. A more Cosmo
would not note this as difficulty; it is just my personal
