Great steamy paranormal short story. This flows beautifully and is great for the avid paranormal romance fan to devour between longer novels. I recommend it.

Wonderful short story. This has all the elements of a full length novel, mystery and romance. I usually don't read stories with ghosts but am so glad I read this one.

Okay I have to make a confession. I didn't dive right into this one right away even though I was dying to after I read Sophia's other title, The Pharaoh and The Curator (click the title for my review). I think a part of me was afraid to cause I was afraid that it wouldn't be as great as The Pharaoh and The Curator. Yeah, shame on me. It was just as freaking amazing as the other one!

Though this one wasn't about lost

Disclaimer - Sophia Jones is my critique partner and I absolutely, positively adore her.

That being said, even if she weren't, I'd still dig this story. The banter and chemistry between Dominic, the 600 year old snarky, silver-tongued rogue of a phantom, and Alyssa, the tough-as-nails modern woman hear-me-roar psychic, are electrifying. Short, steamy, and clever, this paranormal tale is well-worth the read.

Definitely recommend.

And there are more in the works!

Psychic Alyssa DeAngelo was summoned to a castle in Italy to help rid it of an evil presence. In addition to the elderly castle owner, Mr. O'Toole, Alyssa made the aquaintance of Dominicus Romano, who for 600 years had been trapped there. Only Alyssa could see and hear Dominic, and she could feel his touch, too. Dominic was shocked that he could feel Alyssa when he touched her. When later alone together, their mutual attraction quickly ignites and they become allies with a common goal

First of all let me say, I loved this short paranormal story. Alyssa and Dominic positively sizzled. Beyond Alyssa and Dominic I felt the story itself was also strongly written. We have a pretty good idea as to what happened in the past and its effect on the characters in the present, so that the story itself makes sense (that is, there is no evil presence that pops up in the story just for the sake of an evil presence). I was honestly preparing myself for a sad ending but was pleasantly ...more

Great short story, In fact one of the best I've read. The story was straight to the point, thrilling, not sure if there was suppose to be humour in there but i did chuckle when Alyssa puts Dominic in his place, it was interesting and a tad bit steamy *ohh my*. it had brief descriptions of each of the three characters (just enough for you to like them all but not to much as it would take up most of the book like some short stories I have read) :D If there was a follow on novella I wouldn't ...more

Well crafted

A short story to tickle your taste buds, nice change from hefty reads. Focusing on three characters that are easy to relate too.
It does leave you wanting more and that's a sign of a fantastic author. Sophia's style of writing is captivating, a pleasure to read, it grips you from the beginning, that's very intriguing.
The chemistry between Alyssa and Dominic is alluring and just damn right steaming hot. Good plot nice twist and a hart warming ending.

Well worth 5 stars and more. Look

Alyssa a Psychic has been called to Italy by an elderly gentleman after two suspicious deaths occurred in his castle. Alyssa feels something 'evil' lurking in a room in the castle, but she also senses someone else.........Dominic. A ghost you'd certainly want to be stuck with!

A quick fiery supernatural read. Sweet and tasty.
Another nicely naughty one. Short, sexy and full of ghostly goodness. I approve.

I love short stories and castles. This added a spunky heroine and an irritating but sexy ghost-hero. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Sophia Jones is a master at writing shorts, sex and a satisfying ending.

Alyssa DeAngelo is a psychic summoned to a castle in Italy to help its owner get rid of an evil presence. The elderly castle owner, Mr. O'Toole, welcomes Alyssa to his home and within a few hours Mr. O'Toole suffers a fainting spell and is hauled to the hospital leaving Alyssa alone at the castle.

Dominic Romano, a six hundred year old ghost is trapped in the castle and is less than gracious when Alyssa arrives. He calls her names and is unbearable all under the pretense that Alyssa cannot

This was a really great read, it is a short story so obviously it didn't take me much time to fly through but I loved it..

It's about a psychic named Alyssa, who goes to a haunted castle to help out the owner who believes it to be haunted.. It's not hard to give much away so I will stop, but it's free today so check it out!!

A Good short story. I think about midway during the story I got lost somewhere and it was not in a good way. And then by the time I got to the ending it was good but I still felt like for such a short story that I missed something.

This was a great short story that I was sad to see end. A throwback to classic horror movies, but enough new and interesting to keep the story original. Definitely a great first attempt by Ms. Jones! I will most definitely be on the look out for all of her future works!!
Surprisingly not bad at all considering how short it was.

I didn't dislike any of the characters. Wouldn't have minded it being longer even.

I really enjoyed this short and steamy story. The pacing was just right, there was just enough mystery to keep me guessing, and I was very happy at the end.

Ok short story, seemed that this was the beginning of a longer story. At the end of the story something seemed off with one scene ... Overall a three star read.
