A soulmate will answer a lover's call…even from beyond the grave.
Stacy doesn’t know that a dashing ghost is in love with her, but when she conjures him one stormy night, he charms her to her core. After weeks of watching Stacy turn the act of book appraising into a tantalizing experience, Jeremy—once untouchable and invisible—discovers that Stacy is more than just an infatuation. She’s all he wants, and she’s staring right at him, not through him. A passionate kiss seals the deal and kindles their hearts with burning passion for each other. But if given the choice, will Jeremy selfishly have her join him in the realm of the dead, or allow fate to keep Stacy alive—and thus apart from him? When Stacy searches deeper into their connection to discover the ultimate truth about their relationship, does she find out that this is another fateful blow to her heart or a new chance at love? As former lovers and thieves in the night attempt to tear them apart, their love is put to the ultimate test.
The coolness of his skin surprised her. It felt good, after the heat that kept climbing her face and neck. His touch was like a salve to ease that burn. "You're cold," she said. As soon as she spoke the words, she bit her lip. How rude of me!
"I'm dead. Remember?" His expression hadn't changed, but he opened his eyes in slow motion, like waking up from a nice dream. "To me, you feel warm and soft to the touch. You've surpassed how I imagined you'd feel." The awe in his voice touched her heart and made her feel exceptional, appreciated.
And awkward. She glanced around her. "Now what?"
"Why did you trust me so?" he asked. Having physical contact with her had pumped up his self-confidence. He now regarded her with seductively hooded eyes.
Standing next to Jeremy made Stacy want to fluff her hair like a teenager. Hell, she wanted to run her hands through his hair. "I…" She licked her lips. "I really don't know. There is something about you…it's as if I've known you all my life."
He cocked his head to one side. "Strange, but that's exactly how I feel as well. Like I've been waiting for you since my death."
