When Stacey Moreno goes undercover on Evergreen Island, she's looking for answers to a friend's mysterious death, not trouble. After all, Stacey's not adventuresome--she lives vicariously through her cartoon creations and can't tell left from right. But from the moment she moves into spooky Redfern Manor and meets her sexy new boss, trouble starts and sparks fly.

Hobbled by injuries from a plane crash, former journalist Mack Warren came to Redfern Manor looking for escape, not romance. He intends to focus on the biography he's writing of the manor's former occupant and ignore the strange feelings his lively new assistant inspires.

As Stacey digs for answers, she's drawn to her mysterious boss, but he is obsessed with a ghost. With danger drawing near, can Stacey persuade Mack to face the shadows from the past that threaten to destroy their future?

Excerpt:

As Stacey began to peel off the towel and reach for the robe, she heard a click. She grabbed for the robe, struggling with it while still holding onto the towel as the door opened. Why hadn’t Peg knocked?

But it wasn’t Peg who peered at her, accompanied by a sharp intake of breath.

“What… who… are… you?” Stacey gasped, attempting to clutch the robe and towel to her chest. Her shaking fingers slipped and she dropped both.

“A better question is who the hell are you and what are you doing in my bedroom?”

“Your…your bedroom?” Her gaze traveled wildly around the room.

The man didn’t answer. He jerked back and slammed the door. “Can you please put your clothes on?”

Her breath exploded in quick pants. What was going on? Peg directed her to go to the top of the stairs, take a left and go to the first bedroom. Stacey held up her hands and studied them like a map. Left formed an L. Oh, damn, she’d done it again!

And she knew who was behind those surprised blue eyes. Her new boss, Mack Warren.
