The Power of Love in Paranormal Romance

First off, thanks so much for having me here today to share my novel Spiritus. It’s been a wild journey with these characters and the next installment is slated for an April release! This series is just so much fun to write and I’m looking forward to seeing it through to the end.

At the very heart of the Spiritus Series is the idea that there are some loves that refuse to die. Now some may scoff at this idea, but is it so crazy to think that you can love something even after it’s gone? I think all of us want a love that knows no bounds, not even in death, and we know that isn’t a likely possibility, but in fiction all things are possible.

In fiction, not only can love survive beyond the grave, but it can also allow a ghost to walk and speak, and for a normal girl to find a very paranormal companion. It makes us hold our breath and hope that there is some way for such an impossible romance to have a happy ending.

I don’t know about you, but it’s the endless possibilities that drew me to paranormal romance, but it’s that undying love that brings me back begging for more.


Spiritus by Dana Michelle Burnett

 

 

When Becca moves into her ancestral home in Corydon, Indiana, her life takes a puzzling and thrilling turn when she meets the ghost haunting the halls. As the seductive spirit lures her closer and closer, she learns about her own past and starts to understand that some mistakes are meant to last.

Becca McAllister has always been different from other girls her age. Never part of the “in crowd”, Becca never really fit in anywhere. When her mother dies and her father moves them to the small town of Corydon, Indiana, Becca didn’t expect things to change.

But things do change when Becca accidentally makes contact with a one hundred and sixty year old ghost, Alastor Sinclair, that haunts the halls of her new home.

To Becca, Alastor is a seductive spirit that seems to see straight into her soul. To Alastor, Becca is what he was waited a century for–A second chance.

But the closer they get, the more Becca realizes that this isn’t the first time she and Alastor have known each other. Worse still, is she the one responsible for his death so long ago? And if so, did he come back for love or revenge?
