Baby, That’s the Spirit! is part of Stephanie Bond’s Southern Roads Kindle World. It’s Book 2 of my series and follows the romance between Amethyst (Beau’s (Book 1) cousin and Adam, a single dad. She sees and talks with ghosts (including his recently deceased grandmother). He thinks she’s about as phony as you can get.
Free-spirited clairvoyant, Amethyst Raines, comes to Sweetness to tell fortunes at the fall festival and crosses circuits with single dad, Adam Burkett. She has a message for him from beyond the grave – which she’d deliver, if she could convince the infuriating man that she can speak with the dead.
Skeptical Adam is tired of deceitful women. He just wants to finish out his job contract and settle his beloved grandmother’s estate before saying good-bye to Sweetness forever. A fake psychic isn’t going to tempt him into changing his plans…no matter how intriguing she is. But when his daughter goes missing, Adam will do anything to find her, including putting his faith in the seductive medium he can’t seem to resist.
She’s trying to solve a century-old secret; he’s trying to find his daughter. If they can work together, their steamy relationship might stand a ghost of a chance.
She leaned back, resting her head against the swing and pushing lightly against the porch floor with one foot. “This is a great house, too. It’s got to be a hundred years old. Lots of character and probably lots of history. You know they’ll tear it all down, right?”
“As long as they pay me, I don’t care what they do with it.” Adam timed the swing’s momentum, then sat alongside her when it arced toward him. Their thighs touched and that peculiar electricity shot through him again.
He heard her short gasp. Interesting. So, she felt it, too.
When he faced her, he saw she’d closed her eyes and stretched both arms out along the back of the swing, so he took the opportunity to study her. Her blouse stretched tight across her body again, once more outlining every tantalizing inch. Adam imagined how it would be to touch her, to trace her soft skin, feel her nipples jut against his palms as she arched against him. The thought was so enticing, he could almost feel the texture of those pebbled nubs on his fingertips.
She opened one eye and caught him staring. “Like what you see?”
“Darlin’, they’d have to revoke my man card if I didn’t.”
