Jessica Roman-Dell, a paranormal investigator from small-town Ohio, wants to find a ghost to prove that life continues after death. Little does Jessica realize the danger she’ll face when the spirit of a murder victim named Jerry Madison follows her home from a graveyard one night and refuses to leave.
Jerry says he is lonely. He wishes to go to heaven because watching the world pass by without him is more unbearable than death itself. But Jerry is there for another reason that will hit closer to home than Jessica ever could have imagined.
For Jerry is not as innocent as Jessica thinks. Like his murderers, he, too, has killed--and he will stop at nothing to send those responsible for his death to the grave. [close]

Part 19th century novel, part magical journey to the Chinese world of the dead, THE GHOST BRIDE is an unusual historical fantasy infused with Chinese folklore, romantic intrigue, and unexpected supernatural twists.
"One evening, my father asked me if I would like to become a ghost bride..."
Li Lan, a young Chinese woman, lives in 1890s colonial Malaya with her quietly ruined father, who returns one evening with a proposition -- the fabulously wealthy Lim family want Li Lan to marry their son. The only problem is, he's dead.
After a fateful visit to the opulent Lim mansion, Li Lan finds herself haunted not only by her ghostly would-be suitor, but also by her desire for the Lim’s handsome new heir, Tian Bai. Night after night, she is drawn into the shadowy parallel world of the Chinese afterlife, with its ghost cities, paper funeral offerings, vengeful spirits and monstrous bureaucracy. Li Lan must uncover the Lim family’s darkest secrets, before she is trapped in this ghostly world forever. [close]

Left in limbo, Christophe Sinclair is bound by his vow. Promising to return to his love after the end of the Civil War, he’s overjoyed to have his Camille back—and to truly have her in his arms again is his singular focus.
Christophe’s tie to Cami is strong, one that might defy the rules of space and time.
