Throwback Thursday - The Haunting of Josie

Author: Kay Hooper
First published in 1994 by Loveswept

She was a woman of secrets in a house of shadows and he held the key ....

Marc Westbrook would have made a good warlock, Josie Douglas decided--with his raven-dark hair, silver eyes, and even a black cat in his arms! She'd chosen the isolated house as a refuge, a place to put the past to rest, but now her gorgeous landlord insisted on fighting her demons ...and why did he so resemble the ghostly figure who'd beckoned to her from the head of the stairs?

In a novel that sparkles with her unique blend of romantic mystery and spicy wit, Kay Hooper once more demonstrates her talent for seduction and suspense. Will her bewitched hero succumb to his lady's sorcery or enchant her forever with a spell of his own?

Many of you may be more familiar with Kay Hooper's Bishop/ Special Crimes Unit series. If you are a fan, then you might want to try her earlier works, a lot of which are being reissued. The Haunting of Josie was reissued in 2007. It is a pretty quick read. The romance is believable. Marc and Josie are very likable characters. Their chemistry is very steamy! This story has a little bit of a supernatural element to it and the HEA is very satisfying. I have to admit that this book is what got me out of my reading slump a few years ago. While it isn't a spectacular book, there was just something about it that got me back on track. If you want a quick, cute romance with a ghostly twist, pick this one up!
