From the New York Times bestselling author of Halo comes the start of a beautiful and powerful new series.

After the loss of her mother, Chloe Kennedy starts seeing the ghosts that haunted her as a young girl again. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in the south of England is her chance to get away from her grief and the spirits that haunt her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger…

Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with secrets darker than the lake surrounding Grange Hall and a lifelike presence that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost before. But the bond between them awakens the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel. And she will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who threatens to take him from her.

To stop Isobel, Chloe must push her developing abilities to their most dangerous limits, even if it means losing Alex forever… and giving the hungry dead a chance to claim her for their own.

The Making Of Alex- How Do You Make A Ghost Swoony?
I think 19th century gentlemen automatically gain points on the Swoon Meter for dashing around on horseback and bowing whenever they meet a lady! It is, however, slightly more difficult when said gentleman happens to be a ghost, as there’s always an element of fear associated with the dead. The thing about Alex is that he is beautiful but also tragic. He died well before his time in his early twenties along with Isobel and their infant son. He is now condemned to live between worlds, so his soul is never at peace. In my mind, he’s sort of a mixture of Heathcliff meets Mr. Darcy.

Part of his appeal in the book is that in some moments Alex seems so real and tangible but at other times, you get the feeling he could disappear and never come back. Imagine if the love of your life was trapped in another world, that you couldn’t access or understand. Every time he leaves, how can Chloe be sure he’s coming back?

I wanted readers to feel like the relationship between Chloe and Alex can transcend time and cultural barriers. Their connection is inexplicable. Alex is not supposed to be just some hot guy who happens to be dead. He is magnetic and Chloe feels a physical, mental and emotional pull toward him that is so strong it can’t be ignored. The fact that he is intangible most of the time makes him even more seductive. And obviously, Isobel can’t seem to let him go so he must have been a good catch! He’s also a painter and a poet. That’s always swoon-worthy! It also helps that Alex is not in any way vindictive like the other ghosts of the story. He’s lost and trying to find his way, so his vulnerability draws you in.

I have attached a screen shot of Alex from the Ghost House trailer!

Comments

  1. Can’t wait for this book to come out!

  2. I like ghost stories esp when it is cold out, and I’m all snuggled up and it is howling outside!!!

  3. Sounds interesting; not big on ghost stories

  4. I like ghost stories, but not horror stories. In other words, stories about ghosts, but not necessarily scary. Make sense? More along the lines of the Ghost Hunters type of story.

  5. I absolutely love ghost stories. I’m not easily frightened. I cut my teeth as a pre-teen on the “true” version of the Amityville Horror. That particular book terrified me – at least then. I doubt it would faze me now. I began reading Stephen King’s books not long thereafter, as well as Clive Barker’s, and others. I love a good scary tale. This book sounds quite interesting.

  6. I love ghost stories! This particular one sounds amazing I can’t wait to read it!!!

  7. This sounds amazing! I’ve been a huge fan of ghost stories since forever! Looking forward to reading this!

  8. LOVE the sound of this one – it’s a whole new twist and I love that it’s part historical in a way with the guy 🙂

    LOVE ghost stories!!

    thank you 🙂

  9. Laura Thomas says:

    I love ghost stories, and I don’t get so scared easily 😀

  10. I don’t think I’m easily scared, but I’m fascinated by ghost stories.

  11. Christine says:

    I love ghost stories, and I’m definitely not easily scared 🙂

  12. I am not easily scared at all and I love ghost stories!

  13. I LOVE ghost stories! I love horror movies too. Anything that can get me scared is kind of a thrill, though I often regret it afterwards…Something about reading a ghost story is even more intriguing though, and I loved Alexandra Adornetto’s HALO trilogy, so I can’t wait to read this one! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  14. I love ghost stories.

  15. tammy shelton says:

    I love ghost stories and no I don’t get scared easily! 🙂
