When I first started working on The Paramours, the biggest question that plagued me was how would the living interact on an intimate level with spirits. It’s difficult enough for ghosts to communicate on the best of nights, but to take that one step further? Good thing my team of investigators had better ideas than I did.
Nina Azure is a Lakota Ghost Dancer. She’s the only psychically gifted one in The Paramours. Not only can she feel spirits and speak with them, but if they’re strong enough, she can see them. The handsome ghost she meets is even more powerful than that. The two of them make a lusty connection and they’re able to touch one another. Imagine being dead for decades with no human contact and finally being able to touch another person? That person being a beautiful psychic too. That’s a lot of pent-up sexual energy!
But what does someone do when they don’t have any powers to connect to the spirits? This is when you have to get inventive.
Claire McKinney has a theory about poltergeists. They’re attracted to sexual energy and not just boring old sex, either. She utilizes various ghost hunting tools to make contact and revs up the sizzling tension to draw the entity to her. Once she charges up the energy, she amplifies it with her equipment. Her theory turns out to be right. Poltergeists are more than simple phantoms. When the gorgeous being she meets ramps up the passion, she’s able to give him a hand. And so much more!
Vivian Ray has all the equipment and a big brain full of scientific facts. Her investigations are by the book, but those don’t always churn out positive results. So she enlists the help of a hunky medium named Miles Walker. He doesn’t take what The Paramours do seriously, but when he and Vivian are possessed by a pair of ardent spirits, he realizes there is a mighty energy in sex.
Whether it be through psychic abilities, the right equipment, or possession, when the spirit world meets the physical, it is explosive. Desire is a powerful thing even for the dead.
Ghost Dancer (The Paramours #1)
When Nina Azure’s talent as a ghost dancer doesn’t persuade a handsome phantom to talk, she entices him with sizzling sexual energy. Ben Moore’s spirit is tied to this world with guilt, but he breaks his self-imposed silence for the beautiful Nina. Lust makes him fully physical and she loses herself to desire. She must help him carry on to the afterlife, but her attraction to him is immensely powerful. She must push aside her own feelings and let him go—and perhaps find romance among the living.
Poltergeist’s Pleasure (The Paramours #2):
Claire McKinney has a theory that poltergeists aren’t evil spirits or negative energy. When she locates a powerful vortex at the center of a haunting, she discovers a gorgeous man trapped inside. Zendal cannot escape on his own, but if Claire can create enough sexual energy with him, he will be able to break free. Intense as their passion is, it does not release him from the vortex. Claire finds herself caught not only by the ominous portal, but by Zendal’s carnal zeal as well. Can she extricate them from the trap or will they forever be its prisoners?
Lovelorn Spirits (The Paramours #3):
Vivian Ray does not like working with the suave Miles Walker, but he’s the best medium in the paranormal business. When they are possessed by a pair of passionate ghosts, Vivian and Miles realize they might have feelings for one another. But it’s difficult to separate their own emotions apart from the spirits’, and Vivian doesn’t want to believe she’s in anything more than lust with Miles. There’s something much more dangerous after them, though, and if they can’t help the ghosts work through their past, the investigators could lose their own lives.
POLTERGEIST’S PLEASURE (THE PARAMOURS #2)
There was one thing that always got a poltergeist’s attention: sex. Not the boring old vanilla kind either. It had to be down and dirty, raunchy and passionate. Like the way newlyweds behaved. And the sort Claire was about to provide.
The Paramours had set up their ghost hunting equipment earlier in the day. A video camera stood at either end of the conservatively decorated house. Its open concept allowed for a complete view of all the activity.
Vivian fiddled with the thermal imaging camera, setting it on the kitchen counter and bending over to slide the cords out of the way. Her cute ass pointed upward and wiggled as she wedged the cords in between the shelves to where they could not be moved.
Claire patted her friend’s behind and let her hand linger. “Those new jeans look good on you. Are we ready to go yet?”
With the electronics in place, Vivian batted at Claire’s hand. She straightened and raised her brows with a silent question.
Yes, they were starting the test already. While Vivian could be cool and methodical about their investigations, Claire preferred to wing it. She loved surprising the spooks to get a reaction—and her friends, too.
