She’s can’t deny the intense rush of desire she feels every time he’s near. When she agrees to embark on a no-strings-attached relationship, she finds herself thrust into a world of mind blowing pleasures. Now she must face the aching truths of her past.

His dreams are put to the test when a supernatural entity threatens to ruin everything. The one bright spot is the woman who intrigues his mind and heats his blood.
If only he can convince her that, despite his bad boy ways, he can change for the good. Her love becomes his only salvation. Passion burns white-hot as a dark threat looms. The ghost doesn’t want them to be together and sets her sights on Thayne, luring him to a place that goes beyond death. Will Karly be able to save him before it’s too late?
A good ghost story is something that I find hard to come by, there are several reasons for this but hey I’m the type of person that loves horror stories although they can’t scare me. So, anyway, when I find a one I just want to shout from the rooftops. Shari Nichols has done it with her book Haunted, it had all the spine tingling chills that I associate with ghosts, moving furniture, cold spots, the works, so I highly recommend that you grab your blanket, curl up and settle in.
The characters are strong, compelling and easily related to and the romance between Karly and Thayne is hot and messy because the chemistry and the sex is ubër hot, but the emotional currents that run between these two are a roller coaster of feelings due to past issues and current situations. Readers are drawn in and easily become caught up in the tension that fills the pages which of course comes from the romance, but also the thrilling suspense of what will happen with the ghost especially since this ghost seems to become more and more irritated with as Karly tries to help.
The author brought her world to live with well written words and I could practically feel the cold chills run down the back of my neck along with all the characters, so I really enjoyed Haunted and I will be looking for the next book Shari Nichols.
