Synopsis: As a child, Torrie Reynolds entered the haunted Hargrove House on a dare. Terrified by what she'd heard while inside Hargrove House, she avoided it since. Now fifteen years later, Torrie is an interior decorator.
When Will Dalton buys the infamous Hargrove House and offers Torrie the job of refurbishing it, she has no choice but to take the offer to keep her business afloat. As the house is restored and rooms come alive with character and color Torrie brings to them, her fear of the house fades. Hargrove House begins to even feel like home to her. With each finished renovation project, it is harder for Torrie to leave. It is even harder for her to leave the comfort of Will Dalton's arms. But she discovers there are things more terrifying than ghosts when she learns why Will is digging in the dark, frightening cellar.
The Perfect Pair: Paranormal Suspense and Romance
Written by Allie Harrison
Alone, these two strong elements can create an unforgettable story such as Dracula or Gone with the Wind.
Now imagine what you might read if those two stories were combined. What if Rhett Butler was a vampire who could only come out at night and blood was his main course? Would Scarlett want him even more?
Every heroine is attracted to the ‘bad boy’—the renegade biker, the badass cop, the steamboat gambler, or the hot, shirtless, tanned I-can-do-anything rancher. Add in a touch of paranormal and that bad boy might now be immortal or have wings or have the strength of ten men or shift into a panther. Make the hero or heroine a time traveler and he or she now has knowledge, which can be the most powerful weapon. For the paranormal hero, he may now have found love, something he thought would never happen, giving him a small taste of something he’d like to turn into a banquet. For the heroine, she may now have a conflict impossible to ignore. These are all strong, key ingredients for a can’t-put-it-down book.
My paranormal characters are ghosts in some shape or form. Ghosts can cause so much conflict because they come with a lot of questions. Do they really exist? Can they still feel emotion? Can they become real? If the heroine falls in love with a ghost, what kind of future could she have? And what if she does fall in love with a ghost and he suddenly slip to the ‘other side,’ is he lost forever?
In my newest book Hargrove House, Torrie Reynolds enters Hargrove House and takes the job to restore it. She soon falls in love with the house…and with its owner, Will Dalton.
But is the house really haunted? If it is, how can it feel like home to Torrie?
And Will Dalton is a man of mystery and secrets. His biggest secret is hidden in the cellar. I hope you soon find out for yourself what Will is doing in the cellar and why he needs Torrie to join him down there. Hargrove House, like chocolate and peanut butter, is a great example of how well romance and ghosts mix together.
