Inquiring Minds Want to Know

What are you reading now?

I’m re-reading the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. It is one of my favorite series and there is some amazing sense of familiarity when I reread them, like I’m coming home again. Given all the change and stress of the last year, I have to say, I am enjoying re-experiencing them.

How do you come up with the titles to your books?

My newest book has easily my favorite title. I came up with it after reading a joke about how long someone has to be dead before someone is considered an archeologist instead of a grave robber. For me, I love titles that make a person stop and think about it, that make them take a second look.

Who is the last person you hugged?

I am not a hugger. I tend to believe that unless I get an orgasm out of it, I’d really rather people not touch me.

What is something you’ve lied about?

I don’t lie often, mostly because I am a horrible liar. In fact, I tend to worry people think I’m lying and then end up looking super suspicious as I try to not act guilty. However, I also use my kids to get me out of things. I have no problem claiming one of them is sick so we can stay home and relax.

Worth it.

About the Book

Abandoned at three—whose parents want a kid who sees ghosts?—I learned the world is quick to punish misfits. I try my best to be a normal, boring human, but the call of the supernatural just won’t be ignored.

When a stranger shows up on my doorstep in the middle of the night, it’s no sexy tryst. Instead, I’m off to the graveyard, digging up the corpse of a murder victim at the demand of the local vampire coven—and that small felony is just the start.

The spirit of the woman has gone missing, something that shouldn’t be possible, and everyone is looking to me for answers. There's Kase, a vampire who’s both terrifying and secretive. Grant, a mage with a bad attitude and a lot of power. Troy, the possessive werewolf-detective next door and Hunter, a mysterious bad boy who isn’t even close to human.

It’s a race not just against time but against everything to figure out where the spirits are going, who’s behind it and if I can trust the men who now share my bed.

And all because of a little grave robbing…

Read an Excerpt

 “Are you telling me you’re a poltergeist?” I asked.

Hunter chuckled as he shifted his hand so he could stroke the inside of my wrist. The touch was innocent—he wasn’t rubbing anything intimate—and yet I could feel it rush through me as if his fingers were between my thighs. “What do you think?”

“I’ve never seen a poltergeist act like you.” I frowned as I tried to make my brain work despite how he crowded me and made me want to press against him. “And you weren’t able to enter my house without my invitation. Plus my secretary could see you, so no.”

He traced my bottom lip with the tip of his warm tongue, and I tasted flames. “You don’t invite poltergeists into your bed?”

“I didn’t invite you.”

“You did, just not with words.”

“That’s what people with boundary issues say.”

His lips curled into a grin before he bit down softly on my bottom lip, a sting of pain that made me arch up, that made me press my pelvis to him in a blatant and desperate offer. So, he wasn’t wrong.

I did want him, more than I might have ever wanted anything else.

  1. I enjoyed the interview and excerpt!

  2. I love the claiming your kids are sick to get out stuff. I remember before I had kids, people would call into work and say their kids were sick. I remember telling my husband I wanted a kid so I could call in sick.

  3. This sounds like a very good book.
