The goodreads blurb and cover need updating. The updated blurb pretty much gives everything away. Short ending at 70% and then followed by previews. Dual POV, sex and a pretty abrupt ending.

Hmm... not sure how much of this is in e-book format as opposed to Kindle.... (I have ebook freebie!)

We have the story of how Marcel is reduced to a Ghost by the witch he (arrogantly) abandoned; we have Clara, a 'super-TV-star' having a scene with Sam (and fucking it up royally by coming when she isn't (?) supposed to). Then we have "interludes", over the years, with Marcel where he make Clara climax repeatedly...

Bitty; not particularly coherent; no story - apart from Marcel/Clara; so am I MISSI

The book description I read was more accurate than the one provided here on Goodreads.

I loved the way Marcel and Clara connected with each other! Too bad they weren’t able to do that more often.
I’d hoped Sam would have a bigger role in the story. Or maybe he will in the next book? I truly hope so!
This is obviously a book 1 or a prequel to a series.
Fortunately the intensity was high enough to look forward to what comes next!

First of all, let me say, you can't live in the south for over twenty-five years and not know about Voodoo with it's mysteries and power. To me this is like listening to one of the Creole families telling a family tale and making me a part of it. What a terrific story with all the mysticism of New Orleans, the power of a voodoo curse, the thrill of a BDSM club, and the emotions of love. If this is an indication of what to expect in the series, sign me up yesterday for sure because I'll be first ...more

Haunted & Wicked by Liz Gavin is a story about why messing with the heart and body of a vodoo witch or priestess is a bad idea. This book is an entrancing story about a mismatched couple of a movie star Clara and a ghost Marcel who have lost their ability to be together due to one woman’s interference . This story is a steamy, sexy, and romantic ghost story. One of the best parts of this tale beyond it’s romantic nature is that the sex scenes in this book are so hot they practically gave me a fe ...more

I love Liz Gavin’s Club Desire stories. Marcel is one of my all time favorite characters. Cursed by a powerful witch to remain in his home, Marcel is forced to haunt Club Desire as a ghost. But once a year - on Halloween - he can take on a more corporeal form. His escapades - both before his death with many women - and after with Clara make for a fun, sexy story.

★ Never mess with a witch in New Orleans ★

—>>> A woman scorned in Marcel’s past reduces him to a jaded ghost long after they have both passed. Now, he haunts Club Desire and finds himself drawn to a gorgeous woman named Clara, who begins to frequent the club whenever she can get away, also drawn to a male presence she understands because of her own gifts. But just when their attraction was leading them toward new developments, an unexpected visit from his past shatters what they know.

This is a shortish sexy read that starts at Club Desire a BDSM club that Marcel has been stuck there for over a century he was cursed but now he is a ghost. Clara is an empath and a famous movie star who goes to Club Desire to indulge in her fantasies and she meets Marcel, but how can they be together when he is a ghost?. Fantastic story I enjoyed it immensely and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

This is an interesting take on a menage romance, entertaining but a quick read. Clara an actress, Sam the Dom and Marcel a ghost make a fun trio. A well written paranormal with a twist, intriguing characters and a sexual experience I've never read before make me want to read book two of Club Desire. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. ...more

I liked this book. This ménage romance was quite different. I thought the characters were likable, their chemistry very hot and the plot fun. Enjoyable but considering the story, I would have preferred a longer length to provide more details and character development. This is my frank, freely posted review.

Book one in the Club Desire series is well written and one I enjoyed reading. Ghost Marcel Revault, and Clara Hervaux a mega movie star's story kept me turning pages I had to know how things would turn out for them. The story is set in New Orleans.

A forever love and jealously that wants to destroy it.

I liked the idea of a ghost being trapped in a sex club. The feelings shared by Maren and Clare blossomed despite the fact he was a ghost. True lives knows no bounds, not even death. Looking forward to more Club Desire stories.

This is several short stories in one book, and I do mean very short. It's like a series of short stories about the same characters. It's to me not fulfilling and lacks in any real substance of storytelling. The author writes some wonderful romance novels and kinky stuff too, but this is lacking. Not to takeaway from this author's work, just this story series aren't that great or remembered. ...more

This little story made me yearning for more. There need to be more. Marcel is ghost but still so passionate, even if his past life was not so perfect from this point of view. Clara is so open-minded, so carrying. This short erotic story have great plot interwoven. Definitely worth reading.

This book was interesting because of the haunting of a ghost which can actually touch another person, especially when Halloween is close. Lots of smut, which I was in the mood to read, and voodoo.

Did absolutely nothing for me. No story to speak of; just sex. However, even that was tedious. There was absolutely no tension.
