Laying a Ghost
When John McIntyre sees Nick Kelley step off the island ferry, he's instantly attracted, and fairly certain that he knows what Nick is keeping secret, because he's been doing it himself for years. When he discovers Nick's real secret he's drawn into a world he never knew existed, one haunted by grief and guilt and ghosts. In the shadowed world of the spirits, Nick's power is all that the ghosts have to help them. But Nick is still mourning the death of his lover in an accident he believes he caused, and John's determined to keep their relationship secret.
It's going to take a lot more than attraction and really good sex to solve their problems but will they be lucky? Or will one week be all they have before they're left alone again?
Giving Up the Ghost
Most of the people in Florida are soaking up the sun. Nick and John are dealing with a plane crash, a gold-digger, a reporter with an eye on more than a good story, and some startling revelations about Nick's family.
And that's before the ghosts from the crash get angry with Nick, the one person who can hear them.
They're struggling with their relationship when the trip begins -- sex works, sex works well; it's the other stuff that's a problem. Getting away seemed like a good way to work things out. But this is one getaway that might leave John and Nick wishing they'd stayed at home.
Or it might be just what they needed to find out that home is where the heart is.
Waking the Dead
When your lover can speak to ghosts and his half-brother can read minds, you get used to life being a step away from normal. But when angry ghosts take over the bodies of the living, seeking revenge for their centuries-old murders, even John and Nick have trouble coping.
Teenaged angst, pushy tourists, and the dead walking... If they want the peaceful summer they'd planned, they're going to have to fight for it.
Side by side.

Traveling through the Highlands of Scotland whilst reading this box set makes it much more meaningful. Ms. Davitt and Ms. Snow do a fantastic job of capturing the brutal beauty of the Highlands.
Nick Kelley is a Scot returning to his ancestral home. He is a wanderer without roots until his uncle died and left him a house in the very rural highlands of Scotland. Without a mother, father or any other family members, Nick has nothing to lose and everything to gain. When he first arrives, he is befriended by John McIntyre. John is a closet gay man whose family has lived in the same place for decades if not centuries. John cannot keep his eyes off of Nick. Nick is unsure since he is not willing to be anyone's secret lover - an embarrassment.
This box set is marvelous as a reader can read through one book after another. This continuity brings the characters to life. The most impressive is the descriptions of the Highlands. It is realistic and dead on. So many books romanticize the highlands. Authors Ms. Davitt and Ms. Snow bring to life the harsh realities of living in the highlands as well as the rugged beauty. Yes it is an isolated area but for Nick, this is exactly what he needs. This is the nice twist: Nick sees dead people.
In a "Sixth Sense" thriller way, Nick relocating to a slower pace lifestyle with few tourists and few people dying or demanding for his special skills, it is relaxing bliss. Nick can finally breathe and switch to a much needed vacation. Still, these stories are not a tedious recounting of silence. Small towns do have their drama and everyone is each other's business. Add in a half-brother and two cursed ghosts, things can get lively.
Each of these books in the box set are well written and move at a nice and smooth pace. These books are to be savored and enjoyed. The character development is well done and the plots are well thought out. The erotic element is a bit lacking for me. Still, this is more romance instead of a kinkfest. For those who enjoy a slow romantic descent into love, this is the book for you.
