Love Beyond Death - The Inns
The Jekyll and Hyde.
Book one of Love Beyond Death - The Inns
Maggie has always been sweet, but life hasn’t treated her so well. But a lucky win, and she and her childhood friends get a chance to live their dreams. Maggie buys the Jekyll and Hyde Inn without knowing anything about it. So imagine her surprise when the locals refuse to enter because it’s haunted. But ghosts aren’t real!
Lucian ‘Lucifer’ Norton gave his life to stop a terrible crime and never regretted it. But by stopping the wicked murderess, he trapped himself in the Jekyll and Hyde. For centuries he protected the inn from those who would innocently awaken the evil and set it free. So when Lucian comes across a woman who doesn’t believe in ghosts, he’s rather unimpressed. Even more so when Sweet is accompanied by a big heaping of Stubborn!
War erupts in the Jekyll and Hyde and not the war Lucian worried about. He has to keep Maggie safe, make her see sense while keeping the inn locked down and protected. But sometimes life has a way of turning upside down and what you thought was true actually was false. Can two determined, creative souls find their way and stop the evil in the Jekyll and Hyde forever?
The Black Cat.
Book two of Love Beyond Death - The Inns
Benedict Norton left home with his family one night, never to see them again. That night, he gave his freedom and life to imprison an evil so great it could not be allowed to roam free. With only his beloved inn for company, Benedict mourned the life he’d lost but rejoiced in protecting the innocent villages and towns surrounding his inn.
Mariah fell in love with the Black Cat immediately. There was no hesitation. It was meant to be her home. But she didn’t exactly imagine the invisible ghost who enjoys bellowing at her to leave! A firm disbeliever in the paranormal, Mariah’s world is titled when she comes to understand that ghosts exist, so does other stuff she only read about in books.
Two strong souls fight over an inn which is loyal to the Nortons but actually also likes the feisty women now inhabiting it. Nobody is going to win unless they learn to work together. Add in purple dye, a cement mixer, muddy gardens, and matters only worsen!
But events are in motion that cannot be stopped. It is time for everyone to unite to destroy the evil Benedict has guarded so zealously. Should they fail, many will die. But in destroying evil, will someone lose their own life? The Rakehell Six steps up to help someone they thought they’d never reach out to. Maybe it’s time to heal old wounds. Only the Black Cat knows.
