Book Blurb:

Don’t look at the gibbet... Legend has it that disaster will strike all those who do. The townspeople of Last Light Point have come to respect the centuries-old advice. Those that didn’t, paid the price.

The Pirate’s Promise by Lisa A. Olech Autumn 1728

The Crowe’s Nest Tavern was located in a fortuitous place. If you were condemned to hang in Execution Square, they were your last stop. Everly Crowe along with her father and two sisters ran The Crowe’s Nest that was rumored to be slightly haunted, although Everly never believed in such foolishness….until she did. John Beckett was a pirate, or not. Forced upon the account, he’d lost his belief in many things before he caught the eye of a bonny serving lass who was fierce enough to go toe to boot with his captor and captain, Bartholomew Jacques. Jacques held a note on the tavern and tormented Everly and her family as he terrorized all the small towns up and down the coast. But even his threats couldn’t keep Everly and John from promising themselves to each other, “‘till death do us part.” After Jacques and his crew are captured and sent to the gallows, Everly learns those fateful words have little meaning when love is forever. Smoke and Mirrors by Kathryn Hills Autumn 1867

That is until the ghosts of Last Light Point unmask her before the only man she’s ever cared for. Dare she trust Morgan Blackwell with her secrets? Morgan invests every hard-earned penny in The Crowe’s Nest. He doesn’t trust strangers. Yet the last thing he expects are charlatans hell-bent on destroying his reputation with so-called séances. Not to mention there are ghosts in his tavern now! Be damned, must he turn his back on the infuriating woman he longs to protect? Will the dead of Last Light Point guide Willow and Morgan to lasting love? Or will the dark forces they’ve unleashed lead to ruin? For the Love of Grace by Nancy Fraser Fall, 1941

Grace O’Hearn has lived in Last Light Point since long before the ’29 stock market crash took so much from so many. Ten years later, things are looking up. When Grace’s father is murdered, Grace becomes the sole owner of the Crowe's Nest Tavern--an establishment that dates back centuries, and comes with its own resident ghosts. FBI agent, Max Stewart, is sent to Last Light Point to investigate racketeering and police corruption. Could it be connected to man’s murder? When he first meets Grace, he’s convinced she’s hiding something. Yet, her keen insight about the town, and everyone in it, may be the best lead he has. Can they work together to bring down the guilty? Or, will an attraction neither of them wants keep getting in the way? A Promise Fulfilled by Peggy Jaeger Late October, Present Day

After winning millions in a national lottery, local librarian Daisy Morgan sets out to revitalize the infamous Crowe’s Nest Tavern. After saving the historic inn from the auction block, Daisy begins a major renovation only to discover some hidden secrets – and a few unearthly spirits – tied to the tavern’s history. Writer Keegan Warren arrives to do a story on the tavern weeks before the grand re-opening. Keegan’s got a few secrets of his own about why he wanted the assignment – secrets that unfold no matter how diligently he tries to keep them hidden. With Daisy’s help, he unearths a centuries old murder tied to his family’s past. As they investigate, their mutual attraction grows. But will their budding relationship suffer when the truth is discovered?

My Review:

The writers of Ghosts of New England are back with a new anthology and these stories are even better than the first. There’s an old saying that warns doom to anyone who looks at the gibbet. Four couples find love and loss across four centuries in a town called Last Light Point. Pull up a stool at the local tavern and bear witness. Just beware of the ghosts…

The Pirate’s Promise by Lisa A. Olech – I know I’m in for a treat when reading one of Lisa’s tales. Her characters are historically accurate and full of life. She writes about what it meant to love a pirate and the gritty truth about signing your life away to a pirate captain without any scruples. The romance between Everly and John ticks all the boxes. The dialogue is sharp and quick-witted. The ending made me cry. 5+ stars

Smoke and Mirrors by Kathryn Hills – Another spooky tale by this author that delighted my senses. Ghosts and suspicious people crowd this story but it’s Willow who stands out. She’s such a free spirit with many secrets but all that changes when she meets Morgan. This couple was so much fun to read. This author weaves a masterful historical romance that’ll make you a believer in the supernatural. I couldn’t get enough of this one. 5+ stars

For the Love of Grace by Nancy Fraser – I have high expectations whenever I dive into this author’s latest story. I was not disappointed by this story. In fact, I think it’s her best to date. From the plot to the characters to the setting to the romance, it’s a wonderful romantic suspense with paranormal elements. The chemistry between Grace and Max is off the charts. The setting is early 1940s and very descriptive. I was so gripped by the plot, I read it in one sitting. If you love romantic suspense with some ghostly fun, run don’t walk and read this gem. 5+ stars

A Promise Fulfilled by Peggy Jaeger – I am so delighted this author is part of this antho. Her story is modern day and captivating from the start. Daisy and Keegan are magnificent characters and I enjoyed watching them fall in love. The residing spirits inside the tavern are helpful in unearthing some secrets. The writing is addictive to read. I found myself reading late into the night. The ending tied everything together and made my heart swell. If you love romance as much as I do, pick up this anthology right away. 5+ stars

Author Biography:

Lisa A. Olech

Lisa is an artist/writer living in her dream house nestled among the lakes in New England. She loves getting lost in a steamy book, finding the perfect pair of sexy shoes, and hearing the laughter of her men. Being an estrogen island in a sea of testosterone makes her queen. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, the power of a man in a tuxedo, and happy endings.

Nancy Fraser

Award-winning author Nancy Fraser has been writing since the early 1990s. Published since 1996, she writes in multiple romance genres. From sweet 1960’s vintage romance, to paranormal/time travel, to sizzling erotic romance, she never knows where her muse will take her.

When she’s not writing (which is almost never), Nancy loves to travel with Las Vegas being her favored destination. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.

Kathryn Hills

The rich history and many mysteries of New England are the perfect backdrop for Kathryn’s books. Winding roads lined by old stone walls, forgotten cemeteries, grand homes with shadowy pasts...all sparks for her imagination. Whether it’s a quaint seaside town or the vibrant city of Boston, it’s easy for this “hauntingly romantic” author to envision the past mingling with the present. Romance, time travel, ghosts, and magic... You’re off on a great adventure!

Peggy Jaeger

I'm a #contemporaryromance writer who writes #RomComs about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can’t live without them. If I can make you cry on one page and bring you out of tears rolling with laughter the next, I've done my job as a writer!

#Family and #food play huge roles in my stories because I believe there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, I bring all topics of daily life into my stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only child of divorced parents I longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way. Through my books, I've created the families I wanted as that lonely child.
