Book three in the Southern Spirits Series
The body might be reluctant, but there's more than one spirit willing to step in and keep two stubborn men from walking away from each other forever…
Deputy Matt Nixon has had a rough time of it lately. He's put up with the spirit of his boss's dead lover, been stabbed, and had his fledgling interest in another man cruelly flung back in his face. His only close friend is an elderly woman who gets her kicks from calling in false prowler reports then greeting the responding deputies with a lewd proposition and little clothes.
When he finds her dead, Matt grieves for the old woman so many people snickered at—and he fumes at the idea of her snooty nephew from New York who never bothered to visit her. Matt is going to give Carlin Douglas a piece of his mind if he does show up.
Carlin Douglas hates the small town of McKinton, Texas. The only other time he'd been there was years ago when Zeke Mathers was almost killed in a gay bashing. Now Carlin has obligations that keep him tied to New York, but he doesn't mind.
Until he clashes with Deputy Matt Nixon, a man who seems determined to hate him. But McKinton is a different place, and there's always a spirit or two lingering, just waiting for an opportunity…Or meddle.
Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a stand alone title

Deputy Matt Nixon is grieving for his only close friend and he's going to give her snooty nephew a piece of his mind if he shows up in this charming paranormal romance.
Carlin Douglas hates the town of McKinton, Texas and with good reason. The reader can't help but get caught up in the sneaky antics of a couple of spirits who are determined to see Matt and Carlin happy, no matter it what it takes. The chemistry between Carlin and Matt is definitely not a problem as it scorches readers with some red hot passion but the relationship has a major obstacle that keeps them apart. These strong captivating characters are easily related to and grab the reader's attention while the fast paced, smooth flowing plot charms readers with suspense, chuckles and romance. Humor and excitement build throughout the story as the spirits of Mckinton continue to meddle in the affairs of its residents, causing quite a bit of laughter and mayhem while some of the residents of McKinton cause their own bit of trouble, keeping tensions high.
The residents of McKinton, Texas, both corporeal and non, charmed me through and through. While this romance is short and sweet, I was once again delighted with my visit to McKinton, Texas, and I can't wait for the next one.
