hates her psychic-medium “gift”—being able to communicate with ghosts and dying
people. All it’s ever brought her is pain and grief. When her neighbor Hunter
Anderson, an ER doctor, realizes her talent, he begs her to help get rid of the
ghost that’s been haunting him for two years and endangering his job. She’s
torn. Her need to help the attractive man who saves peoples’ lives wars with
her guilt over not being able to lead police to crime victims before they’re
dead. She agrees to help Hunter.
They soon find out the ghost is likely to turn dangerous if he doesn’t
cross over to the next world.
After losing his
wife in a tragic accident, Hunter’s only solace is his work. The ghost that
haunts him jeopardizes the one thing he cares about. But spending time with
Veronica, getting to know her passionate lips and sassy attitude, gives him
something new to care about.
She can’t risk her

“I’m a liar. I
could never tarnish something as beautiful as this.”
Christ. What a line. Where had those words come from?
But he meant it.
Her breath was hot
against his finger as he traced the line of her lower lip. Her gaze held his.
His stomach growled again, breaking the spell, and she blinked and leaned
against the sofa.
“You know what? We
never had dessert,” she said.
He had room for
dessert. But not the food kind. He swallowed to quell his appetite for
her. “Uh…how about I make an ice cream run? Then we’ll get to work.” Enough of
this temptation. He needed to get away from her, from this pull she had on his
body and emotions.
