A Babe in Ghostland - Lisa Cach

Title: A Babe in Ghostland
Author: Lisa Cach
Published: 2006
Publisher: Pocket
Pages: 340
Genre: Ghost/Light Romance

With the coming holiday of Halloween - I have been trying to find books that have "spooky" themes but not horror. This was a quick, fun read that concentrated mostly on the ghost story and not the romance.

Case buys a haunted mansion and hires Megan, a retired psychic, to help him with his problem. The story is cleverly written and keeps you guessing as to who the ghosts are and why they are haunting the mansion.

Line of Scrimmage - Marie Force

Title: Line of Scrimmage
Author: Marie Force
Published: 2008
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Pages: 356
Genre: Romance

This is Marie Force's debut novel, and she comes out with a sensational book that has me waiting for more from this author!! It involves divorce, reconciliation, forgiveness, communication - true and honest emotions. There was deception, holding on to past hurts, passion, anger, and finally honesty.

Ryan and Susannah are ten days away from finalizing their divorce. When suddenly, Ryan shows up at her door demanding that they spend every minute of the last ten days together. He wants a chance to right his wrongs, show her that he has changed, and possibly reconcile their marriage. Susannah has no option but to agree. Ryan has threatened to stall their divorce, and she is getting married at the end of the month.

Ryan is the star quarterback for a pro football team, and Susannah has the ability to bring Ryan to his knees and ground him. There is witty dialogue, places that made me laugh and places that made me cry. Susannah has trust issues with Ryan in believing that he has changed - she's heard it all before. But through his actions as well as his words, Ryan slowly gains Susannah's trust only to be broken by outside influences.
