Can true love spark just enough light to save it?
When Chase hires the mysterious ghost exterminator, Ryder, to cleanse his house from a pesky poltergeist he gets way more than he’s paying her for…
There’s just something about Ryder that has him mesmerized.
Is it the fact that he’s witnessed her do the unexplainable? Or the fact that she’s absolutely breathtaking? Or perhaps it’s that eerie familiar feeling that they’ve met before, perhaps in another lifetime.
Chase desperately tags along with Ryder on a whirlwind of life threatening adventures in exchange for a few precious moments of alone time with her. With the Grimm Reaper’s Scythe as their defense, Chase developing some supernatural gifts of his own and an intense crush developing between the both of them what crazy supernatural force will target them next?
“Who the hell are you? How the hell did you get in here? I didn’t let you in. Get out of my houseeeeee!” He screeches and shoves me with the strength of a two-hundred-fifty-pound wrestler.
I go flying through the air, then I slam into the wall, and then I land on top of his precious dresser. All of the decorations on top of it topple to the floor and a few drawers fall out, exposing their contents. I gasp for air, having the wind knocked out of me. A woman’s bra and a tank top hang over my knee and elbow. Debris is everywhere from the fallen drawers.
I hear Ryder’s laugh cackle over the sounds of the dresser settling back into place. “Haha, perhaps I underestimated him. He’s a strong one. He seems very touchy if you disturb his routine.” She muffles her giggles by covering her mouth.
I can barely breathe and my back aches with pain. But slowly I fight to stand up. Where my body slammed into the wall is a round, foot-long dent with tiny, vine-like cracks protruding outward from it, probably where my ass impacted it. Jesus, I hit that hard, to cause a dent like that?
“Collateral damage,” she shouts over my faint whimpers. “Get back in there, you’re not done yet!”
Ashley Pagano has always dreamed of being an artist both figuratively and literally. Her love of art was instilled by her mother who always inspired her to be creative either with a paintbrush or with a pen and paper. As far back as she can remember her life was always centered around introspection, storytelling, and imagination. Because she is so artistic, she took to the idea of creative writing very passionately. Her ability to describe a scene, person, or place, she compares to painting a picture, where she can describe every detail vividly in order to make the reader feel like they’re truly living in the story. Her works of writing usually center around a powerhouse female protagonist (which reflect her own personality), who progresses through many wild and extreme obstacles. Ashley loves to write stories that end with a cliffhanger, that leave the reader begging for more and questioning what happens next. Her most recent novel sets the stage for the paranormal romance of the century and includes ghosts, poltergeists, and demons who just love to get in the way of true love. Ashley has won awards for her design, art, and writing.
Ashley doesn’t believe in down time whatsoever and actually loves having a full “To-Do”list. Ashley is a wife to her wonderful husband, Eric and a mother to a beautiful little baby girl named Dakota. She is also a Graphic Designer and a health and fitness coach. Her husband and daughter inspire her to be the best person she can be and encourage her to pursue any of her dreams (no matter how extravagant they may be).
