Book Blast for Ghost Touch by LA Dragoni



Ghost Touch
by LA Dragoni

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Paranormal Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:


For fifteen minutes each night a portal opens in Tamara’s barn and a horde of ghosts spills into her yard. She and Dex work together to find a way to help Cal and the thousands of spirits stuck in the void to cross over. When she learns she has the ghost touch—the ability to touch the ghosts as if they were corporeal—and she accidentally helps a little boy cross, she believes it might be possible. But not all the spirits play nice and when they learn they can sip energy from her ghost touch, they become greedy putting her life at risk.


Each time Cal has to pull her from the mass of ghosts, her touch restores him more and more until he is at danger of being stuck on earth—forever, which is very enticing to Tamara the better she knows him. Will she and Dex figure out how to help the spirits cross and if they do, will she be able to let Cal go?

Excerpt Two:

Dex!” she shouted again, leaping forward and running toward the door. A stabbing pain of cold sliced through her upper arm when she knocked against the ghost with the shovel in his hand. He stopped to stare at her with a surprised expression on his face. She pushed forward, ignoring the increasing pain as she jostled up against the ghosts.

A knot of ghosts hunkered together where she last saw Dexter. She pushed through them, her warm touch surprising enough to make them jump back. Dex lay crumpled in a quivering ball at the center of the group. Tamara kneeled beside him and clutched his shoulders.

Dex! Are you okay?” He didn’t respond, just rocked to and fro, mumbling incoherent words. She shouted. “Dex! Can you hear me?”

His gaze finally lifted, a wary look colored with terror.

Oh my God.” Tamara wrapped her arms around him. His body was ice cold. She pressed as much of herself against him as she could and buried her face in his hair. “I gotcha. You’ll be okay.”

Then she became aware of an ache worming through her muscles and realized hands pawed at her, clutched her, and were trying to pull her away. She raised a furious glare at the eager crowd of ghouls and snarled. “Stop! Leave us alone.”

However, hunger showed in the eyes of those who’d been dead a short enough time to still have them. Actions became more insistent and then combative. The group shoved and swayed until she worried she’d be crushed beneath them when they fell. She kept her arms wrapped around Dex, hoping to keep the spirits off him, but many simply reached through him to get to her. He shuddered violently and had grown quiet.

Each individual touch drained her of warmth and energy, yet they continued to grope at her arms and back, tug on her hair and clothing. She grew weaker and weaker until the edges of her vision dimmed and she could barely feel the boy she was trying to protect.


My Review:

Awesome book!! Ghost are my favorite for of the paranormal genre. And this book has plenty of them. I picked this book up around 9 PM and around 2 AM I read the whole thing. I couldn't make myself put it down. I love all of the characters in the book. Some were good some not so much they all had a big part in making this book a real page turner. I can't wait to see what L A Dragoni comes up with in book 2 and if she keeps Tamara and Dex or brings in new main characters. 

In the book Tamara has recently lost her mother to cancer. She starts having nightmares each night of a different ghost chasing her. Then one night her horse gets out of the stall in the barn and what she sees not only amazes her but terrifies her.  There is a glowing light coming from around the barn door. As she goes out to see what is going on hundreds of souls come out of the barn. 

She makes friends with Cal, one of the ghosts. He tells her just enough about the void to keep her afraid to go near but yet he wants her help to cross over all of the spirits in the void. The spirits re allowed out each night from 1:30 to 1:45 AM. During this 15 minute time Cal and Tamara start a friendship bordering a relationship. 

Tamara eventually calls in her friend Dexter from work to help her with her ghostly problem.  Both man and ghost become jealous of each other and the others relationship with Tamara. But they muddle through to do the right thing.
