A PSYCHOLOGICAL GHOST STORY, in which haunting memories lurk in the dark corners of a mysterious walk from the past!
When smoking-hot Dr. Marc St. Clair inherits his eccentric aunt Miriam’s old Victorian house at Calico Acres, in southwestern Wisconsin, her Last Will, and Testament state that he and his invalid wife, Summer, must live there for one year before signing the deed.
Despite the fact that the house is rumored to be haunted, Marc falls in love with it and accepts Miriam’s generous offer … against Summer’s wishes. But after a disastrous honeymoon and a riding accident that leaves his beautiful wife confined to a wheelchair—bitter and full of self-pity—he believes that for their marriage to work, they must move away from her meddling parents.
Summer hates the spooky house on sight when they arrive at Calico Acres with their housekeeper, Josephina, on a cold, snowy January day. As unexplained events occur throughout the year, Summer, Josephina, and even their gossipy neighbors try to make Marc give up his insane idea of owning the house. But Marc is determined to stay. He desperately wants the mansion and feels a strong connection with his late aunt, although he had never met the woman and his family never discussed her except to say she was crazy.
To complicate matters, Raven Bear—a sexy Native American girl—appears one day on a black stallion, offering her services as a physical therapist for Summer. And poor Marc—frustrated beyond belief and smitten with the feisty young woman’s advances—falls under Raven’s spell and takes advantage of certain “other” services she offers. Who and what is mysterious Raven Bear, who digs holes in Marc’s yard searching for Indian relics … and attempts to fill a physical gap in his marriage to a paraplegic?
Dr. Marc searches the house for details of Miriam’s life while his wife is forced to confront secrets from her own past. He must discover who or what is haunting Calico Acres before the year is up or risk losing his inheritance, the woman he loves, and perhaps even his mind. Little does he realize how close he is to losing all three.
A sequel to this novel, spanning several genres—Women’s Fiction, Romance, Mystery, Suspense, Paranormal—is currently in the plotting stages. Stay tuned.
