Haunted Houses and Summer Spooks
by Morgan Brice
Old hotels, Victorian houses, historic mansions and shipwrecks. They’re all part of a trip to the beach, and they’re a reminder that when the sun sets and the tourists go home, some visitors never leave.
What kind of ghosts linger at the beach? Pirates. Star-crossed lovers. Unlucky sailors. Out-of-luck out-of-towners. Add in old scandals, long-kept secrets, murder and revenge, and it’s the perfect mix for sexy thrills and spooky chills!
My new urban fantasy MM paranormal romance series, Treasure Trail, is set in Cape May, New Jersey. Erik Mitchell used to track art fraud and bust up forgery rings, but after a close call, he moves to Cape May to make a fresh start. Ex-cop Ben Nolan is also starting over, and sparks fly when the two men meet. But when old scandals and murders come to light, they’re going to need each other and every bit of luck to get their happy ending!
Cape May is known to be a very haunted town. Plenty of people came to visit and stayed forever. Beautiful Victorian houses, great food, interesting history—and ghosts. When I visited for a wedding last year, I knew I had to set a series there!
Erik and Ben both come to Cape May to outrun their pasts, both personal and professional. They’re wary, having been betrayed before by people they trusted. So when the attraction between them is undeniable, they’ve got to decide whether to take a chance or keep running. I had so much fun with these two!
Treasure Trail is the first in the series, but there will be more books to come! And if you finish Treasure Trail and want more sexy thrills and spooky thrills by the sea, check out my Badlands series is set in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with a psychic medium and a skeptical homicide cop who chase down supernatural killers.
