Supernatural meets Rock Star in this exciting new series. More than passion ignites when Kate, rock star/scriptwriter, is trapped in a haunted cabin with the hot Scottish actor playing her hero.
I set my glass on the coffee table, tried to stand, and stumbled right onto his lap, half my body teetering off the edge of the couch. He quickly embraced me to keep me from falling, those muscular arms steadying and enfolding me.
“Whoa, are you drunk already, Katie?”
“I’m afraid I’m a bit of a lightweight these days.”

“Oh, okay. Sorry, I misread that. I thought…” He rubbed the back of his neck. “Wow, I cannot recall the last time I was turned down, even by a married woman.”
“I figured as much.” I headed toward the kitchen so he couldn’t see my discomfort. He hadn’t misread anything. “How about some dinner?”
