The Ghost Lover by Liza O'Connor



Ghost Lover
By Liza O’Connor

Romance with a touch of paranormal



Blurb

Two sexy English brothers. One irresistible ghost. Who would you choose as your lover?

Completely broke and with a criminal record to boot, Senna Smith is one day from eviction from her apartment when Brendon, her promiscuous roommate from London, suggests she go to England, marry him, and manage his fortune. With few other options, she agrees to an open marriage. But she’ll never, ever, have sex with him, knowing if she falls in love with him, he’ll break her heart.

As trustee of Brendon’s family fortune, there is no way Brendon’s older brother, Garrison Durran, is going to let him marry a self-professed American gold-digger. As Senna tries to embrace castle life and English society for Brendon’s sake, Gar discovers Senna is the perfect woman for him--beautiful and intelligent, kind and caring. Now, if she wasn’t already engaged to his brother…

The ancestral ghost of Durran Castle has to intervene if the Durran brothers have any chance of an heir. He can’t leave them to fix matters on their own. They are useless buggers when it comes to love. As counselor to Gar, matchmaker for Brendon, and lover to Senna, a ghost’s work is never done.

EXCERPT

Brendon moved to the window and stared out. “I don’t think you realized how bad things became for me when Nan died. I’d lost the only person who cared for me. I had no one left. The million dollars I lost on a roulette wheel wasn’t done just to get rid of the cook. I did it to get your attention. While you didn’t give a shit about me, you’ve always loved money. And it worked. You finally noticed me.”

“And I sent you away,” Gar said with remorse.

“Yeah.” Brendon turned and gave him a faint smile. “Not exactly the response I’d hoped for, but it turned out all right. I met Senna and since then life keeps getting easier with each day. Now I find I even like you most of the time.”

“Well, the feeling is mutual. You’re still eccentric, but you’ve a good heart and good intent, and I’m proud you’re my brother.”

Suddenly the door opened and Senna walked in looking at both men with concern. “Are you two having a fight?”

“Not at all.” Brendon smiled. “In fact, Gar told me he’s proud I’m his brother.”

Senna’s eyes filled with appreciation as she grinned at Gar.

Her smile almost broke Gar’s heart. God help him, but Brendon had nailed the truth. He did love Senna, and more than anything, he wanted her to be his wife.

Rana: Teenage Queen by Liza O'Connor




The Power of ‘Return’

While Rana has a plethora of spells to make her strong, one of her favorite spells is one that requires no potions nor sprinkling of substances. It is simply stating the word ‘Return’. It is so powerful, that she need only whisper it and whatever was being sent her way would reverse and go back to the sender, only a hundred times more potent.

Thus, when General Hack declared the tower had been overrun by the enemy and ordered his men to fire upon it, sending a massive quantity of arrows into the tower, killing her father, she orders the arrows to ‘return’, then realizing her soldiers had only followed the general’s order, she amended her order, “All to General Hack.” And soon after, the general became a pin-cushion ball of arrows.


BLURB

Rana is only sixteen when she becomes queen. Her first challenge is to quell an internal coup while a massive army storms the gates of her castle. Her enemies believe her to be a child, but she has powers they’ve never suspected. She also has great dreams for her people, and she will do whatever is necessary to make them happen, even marrying a prince she does not want.

EXCERPT
Rana finally got a chance to meet the general’s daughter on the journey back to Stronghold. She, Cara, and Lilth shared the iron carriage.

Cara soon fell asleep, her head in Rana’s lap. Rana’s hand absentmindedly stroked the girl’s hair.

“Is she your pet?” Lilth asked.

“What? No! She’s my maid.”

“You treat her like a spoiled pet.”

“She is very young. Too young for her job, but she has been a great comfort to me during this last month. Thus, I treat her with love and kindness.”

Lilth stared out a window slate. “You treat her better than her mother did, I imagine. With such a soft heart, I wonder how you’ve accomplished so much.” She then faced Rana. “Nor do I understand how Mother failed to defeat you.”

“God protects me.”

She snorted. “There is no God. You know that as well as I. Your power comes from fairy magic. We both know that.”

“Your mother was a fairy?” Rana asked.

“As am I. As are you. Only you seem far more powerful than me, even though I am three years older. I don’t understand why.”

“What sort of things did your mother teach you?”

“Thousands of ways to kill a person.”

Rana felt sorry for the girl. “My mother taught me to be one with God. To help Him heal sickness, grow plants, and protect oneself from harm. My strength comes from God.”

“Yet, you murdered my brothers.”

“No. I simply returned their gift. Had they sent me gold coins, they would be rich now.”
