Paranormal Ghost Romance


1971: A ghost in the house – a young Canadian widow forced to choose between the living and the dead. Will she prove strong enough to let go of the manacles of obsession?

Scarlett Kane and her son Troy battle paranormal elements in this vintage story of the supernatural. Her late husband Michael’s head was crushed in a horrific motorbike accident in June 1971.

Ten years later a resolution defies the bonds of heaven and earth. An incredible secret releases her from the inconceivable burden of her past.

A sometimes violent rather steampunk story of first love and redemption.


Paranormal Ghost Romance


His son remembered him forever although Troy was barely three when Michael Joseph Kane died in a horrific fiery motorcycle crash over the side of a bridge and shattered his helmet on a light standard below. His son remembered fondly and with some puzzlement the circus and the swimming pools that his father took him to when he was small, before his father didn’t ever come back again into his life. Barely three years old at the time, he remembered his mother crying when she left him with Scott’s mother one morning and his father did not come back as he usually eventually did.

After death. What is that? Troy didn’t understand, such a little boy he was, and waited at the window many days for his father to come home again.

Scarlett really didn’t understand, either, and the guilt overwhelmed her. Her last memory of Michael was the senseless fight, the door slamming, and the sound of the Honda bike as it roared away, down the street and to eternity.
