"Ethereal Paranormal Romance"

Allison is a medium who helps others erase the negative energy in their lives using Reiki. She is able to make contact with the dead, but after a past frightening case, Allison closes her mind to spirits and is content in her simple low-key life. All that changes when she meets Logan, a wealthy man who she feels is different from all the other rich snobs. Since he was young, Logan has been able to read emotions, and no training in how to shut people out of his mind has damaged him to the point he has OCD and occasionally contemplates suicide. Logan's control and thoughts have been getting worse since he bought a new house which has turned out to be haunted. Logan and Allison fall in love almost at first sight and Allison eventually agrees to help Logan by clearing the house of the spirit. However, this spirit has become attached to Logan and will put up a dangerous fight to stay in the house.

I liked this story, it was not a great story, but still good. I have read other paranormal romances with ghosts that have engaged me a bit more, but maybe it is just my personal preference for something a little scarier. I really liked the characters in the story, they were developed very well, and the ending was good, but seemed kind of rushed. The lead up to it was very calm and the suspense lasted less than two pages. I also would have liked to see more background about the spirit. With so much mention of it, I would have thought there would be more information on the spirit rather than just a short paragraph. But other than that, I liked the story and I would like to read future stories involving some of the supporting characters and possible future romances.

A psychic who’s afraid of ghosts and a millionaire with a haunted past and a hidden power find that only love can catch a spirit. With love, all things are possible—especially if you need to catch a Spirit.

Psychic Allison Dupuis has a soft spot for Logan Mitchell, even though she’s never met him. All it takes is one encounter for the millionaire’s true emotions to slip through Allison’s shields, and she is intrigued. He needs her help, but Allison soon discovers that the kind of help Logan needs is the kind she isn’t willing to give. Logan has a ghost, and Allison doesn’t work with spirits anymore.

But the ghost is the least of Logan’s problems. Born an empath, Logan is constantly barraged with human emotions. And while his talent has come in handy in the business world, it’s about to drive him insane. Literally. Logan has OCD, and his ability triggers unbearable attacks that have him counting and cleaning until he collapses from exhaustion.

Sex and money. That’s all anyone wants from him. Even worse, he’s plagued with recurring visions of his future wife’s death, so Logan has spent his entire life avoiding love. He’s given up hope of ever having a normal life, until he meets Allison. She’s everything he’s ever dreamed of, and now he has to decide if loving her is worth risking her life.

If she’ll even have him. Allison’s lost too much already – her mother to cancer, her father to suicide. But, Logan is so charming and so real, she can’t help but fall for him. Now she has to overcome her fear of commitment…and ghosts…or face spending the rest of her life alone.
