Can a Ghost Spark Love To Expose The Truth?
To expose a faction threatening America’s democracy, Emily Rose joins forces with a team investigating her sister’s murder, but she never expects to fall in love––or to encounter her twin’s ghost. Ashton Frasier accepts his detective career choice means a life of bachelorhood––until Emily Rose blows into his world. The spitting image of his latest victim holds a mysterious allure he can’t deny. Surrounded by danger with the country’s democracy at stake, Emily and Ash must expose a dangerous faction threatening to take the White House before the Deep State discovers their sting...and tame a fiery passion burning between them, evoked and fanned by cunning spirit with good intentions. Can a ghost spark love in the midst of chaos?
WHEN LOVE SPARKS DANGER––EVEN ASH BURNS!
Darkness crept around Emily’s hospital bed like a shroud. She tugged the blanket over her face and curled onto her side. Feeling totally alone for the first time in days, she released the emotion hidden behind her stark façade in a burst of silent tears that splashed to the surface then streamed down her cheeks. Why Alyssa? How could she go on without her twin? They were two parts to one whole. Emily clenched her eyes, refusing to envision a life without Lyssa, but the image pierced her armor and shattered her heart into tiny fragments that pricked her like needles scratching over her skin from the inside.
The whisper spoke as clearly as her own.
“Alyssa, please don’t leave me. Tell me what to do.”
Part of Emily craved the suspense, the thrill of being thrust into the middle of a real-life murder mystery. The intensity drew her in, displacing her grief, and allowing her to push reality into the corners of her mind where the need to deal with Alyssa’s death silently slept.

When the door slammed open, Emily’s back went rigid. She jerked forward, clinging to sheets as the blanket slipped to the floor. Her hands fisted and shot to her swollen, blurry eyes. Surely, her tears distorted her vision. She wiped away the remaining moisture then peered again at the man standing before her.
Ash stood at the entrance, legs splayed, and pistol drawn, pointing directly––at her.
Frozen in place, she tried to speak but nothing came out. She stared, pulse racing, as her thoughts spun to make sense of what her heart told her couldn’t be true.
“MPD. Don’t move, or you’re dead.” Ash glanced around the room then took a step forward.
“I…I won’t move.” She couldn’t hide the tears spilling from already dampened cheeks, dripping onto her hospital gown. “Why––”
