Spiritus Book One by Dana Michelle Burnett

All Things Are Possible in Paranormal Romance

I got the new edition of Entertainment Weekly the other day.  I had already seen the cover scattered over the internet and Facebook, but I was still anxious to see it for myself.  This time, the cover features The Vampire Diaries.  How hot is that?

There was a time, before Stephenie Meyer and L.J. Smith, when the idea of a popular series featuring vampires would be more camp than mainstream.  As a paranormal romance writer, I still pinch myself at the idea that there is actually a market now for all of those crazy stories floating around in my head!
So, while my stories will probably never reach the popularity of Twilight or The Vampire Diaries, how great is it that I have the chance to stand in the shadows of these novels?

It doesn’t matter if you love or hate Twilight, or if you think that humans and vampires should never mix without destroying one another.  If you are a paranormal romance reader or writer, you owe a big thank you to these two franchises.

I sit here now; editing book #2 of my Spiritus series, but next to me sits the copy of Entertainment Weekly to remind me that when it comes to paranormal romance, all things are possible.

A love that refuses to die…

“As I watched him vanish into a soft mist that faded away, I knew that he was no ordinary spirit…I knew that he was a dangerous entity that could be in some corner of another realm planning his revenge, but I also knew that I was hopelessly in love with him.”

When Becca moves into her ancestral home in Corydon, Indiana, her life takes a puzzling and thrilling turn when she meets the ghost haunting the halls. As the seductive spirit lures her closer and closer, she learns about her own past and starts to understand that some mistakes are meant to last.

Becca McAllister has always been different from other girls her age. Never part of the "in crowd", Becca never really fit in anywhere. When her mother dies and her father moves them to the small town of Corydon, Indiana, Becca didn't expect things to change.

But things do change when Becca accidentally makes contact with a one hundred and sixty year old ghost, Alastor Sinclair, that haunts the halls of her new home.

To Becca, Alastor is a seductive spirit that seems to see straight into her soul. To Alastor, Becca is what he was waited a century for--A second chance.

But the closer they get, the more Becca realizes that this isn't the first time she and Alastor have known each other. Worse still, is she the one responsible for his death so long ago? And if so, did he come back for love or revenge?
