A summer fling so hot, it can raise spirits....
Home renovation specialist Alexis Miller thought snapping up an old Victorian fixer-upper in podunk Whispering Cove would put her on the fast track to proving herself to her brothers.
She can handle cooling her heels to wait for the right permits. It's the ghost hunter claiming he needs to spend the night to check out the "cold spots" that's got her body temperature fluctuating.
When Sam Doherty responds to an emergency phone call to cleanse a haunted house in Whispering Cove, the first thing he notices is how Alexis hides her femininity behind baggy coveralls - and how she wants to cover up the old home's beauty with modern frills. As a guy who "sees" things others can't, he sets out to teach her to appreciate the hidden beauty, inside and out.
Scary noises soon send Alexis into Sam's arms, and when a kiss leads to passionate lovemaking, Alexis wonders if it's possible to find common ground in this small town. Or, once the house is "clean", if Sam will disappear faster than a ghostly apparition.
Warning: Contains enough sexual tension to raise spirits and turn any cold spot into a sweltering vortex of heat and passion.

Nice lightweight romance
This short story is light amusing and heartfelt about community life,family and love. The male voices sound like and old pirate fluctuating between Scottish and American in an off-putting raspy drawl. Overall I enjoyed the story.

Unrealistic storyline and Characters
I felt that the characters weren’t very believable, their friendship dynamics, personality traits and jobs were too far fetched for me to enjoy fully.
I thought the haunted house storyline was a bit silly
