After George gets ill, the dreams begin. Suppressed memories surface, allowing him to see ghosts, and a deeply buried instinct emerges. George finds out he can kill these monsters, and heal their victims. The ability to save lives is something he cannot ignore, but it soon becomes an obsession and begins to eat away at George's sanity. His quest for understanding leads him to new friends and allies, and exposes him to enemies he could have never imagined. But how do you kill something that's already dead?
What Haunts Me – Ghost Killer – Book 1 (a supernatural/paranormal thriller) is the first book in an episodic series. It is currently listed on Amazon as a pre-order item and will be officially published on November 15, 2014. http://www.amazon.com/What-Haunts-Me-Ghost-Killer-ebook/dp/B00NH0QU40 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23214897-what-haunts-me---ghost-killer---book-1 Back cover: You can’t kill something that’s already dead. Unless of course you’re George. There are ghosts and demons that wander among the living; they do not haunt in the traditional sense. Instead, they plague the living with diseases and physical deformities, and once a ghost finds its victim it will haunt them for a lifetime. A mild illness brings on the dreams, which trigger the suppressed memories, which in turn allows George to see ghosts. Along with this new sight into a realm unknown to most, George instinctually knows that he must kill the ghosts. Of course none of this makes sense, but he cannot control the urge to kill when he encounters them, because deep inside, he knows this is what he must do. Another thing he knows; if he kills a ghost, a person nearby is suddenly healed. His acceptance of this newfound ability to see and kill ghosts becomes his obsession, but it is also destroying his life and threatening his sanity. George seeks the help of Phil, a known paranormal expert, who briefly explains his new ability, but also warns him about a dangerous man who is looking for a powerful ghost killer, and insinuates that George is that powerful ghost killer. Soon after, George meets Billy, a young woman with a brazen and unlikable personality. However, she is another ghost killer, and that makes her someone he needs to know. With the help of Billy and Phil, George looks for answers as to how and why he’s become what he is and who and what the dangerous man wants. His quest for knowledge leads him to new friends and allies, but also to enemies he could never have imagined, enemies that killed his mother and grandparents and now want him.

Corruption, intrigue and murder in the court of Edward II
Author: Paul Doherty
Publisher: Hachette UK
Journey to the reign of Edward II, where murder was part of the tapestry of life... The first in Paul Doherty's series featuring Mathilde of Westminster is played out against the glorious, violent and decadent court of Edward II where ghosts throng, and old sins and innocent blood cry to heaven for vengeance. Perfect for fans of Susanna Gregory and Michael Jecks. By 1322, Mathilde of Westminster was considered the finest physician in London. But in her years as lady-in-waiting to Princess Isabella, she was drawn into the murky politics of the English court, where sudden, mysterious death was part of the tapestry of life. Many years later, Mathilde looks back and chronicles her turbulent life. With her sharp, suspicious intellect ready to distinguish between a fatality and an unnatural death, Mathilde is confronted by a host of chilling murders. The source of these horrors is the fierce political rivalry between Philip of France and Edward of England. This manifests itself in a series of gruesome killings, one of which actually took place during Edward II's Coronation, when a knight of the Royal Household, Sir John Baquelle was crushed to death... What readers are saying about The Cup of Ghosts: 'Doherty has created a vivid and credible picture of life at the royal court' 'There are very few authors who can even come close to matching Doherty' 'Cup of Ghosts is a beautifully written novel, bringing fact and fiction together in a believable story of murder, intrigue, desire for power and passion in a time when violence and murder was a way of life'

This bundle contains books 1 - 3 of the Diva Delaney Mysteries. Is Murder By Candlestick Still A Thing?: Diva Delaney is the only normal living among a family of witches in Hollowood Grove. Although ‘normal’ can hardly be applied to a psychic medium. As if her life as the only non-magical person in the Delaney Coven isn’t hard enough, she’s the prime suspect in Edward Creighton’s murder. Disliked by most, the only people who will miss the grumpy old warlock are the members of the Creighton Coven. Their hot local sheriff, Drew McTavish, is Diva’s ex, sort of. They dated three times a couple of years ago before the mysterious curse someone put on her kicked in and punished him for kissing her. He doesn’t believe in the mystical and he’s just waiting to find proof of her involvement in the murder so he can lock her away. The Creighton Coven want justice for the death of one of their own. Haydn, Edward’s great-nephew, has returned from England to take over running the Creighton Bookstore. Wickedly handsome and powerfully dangerous, he has his sights set on Diva and not in a good way. If she doesn’t find the real killer, she could end up paying the price for a murder she didn’t commit. Not even her four ghostly friends will be able to save her if the warlock decides she’s guilty. Voodoo Hoodoo Is Complete Doodoo: Diva Delaney finds herself embroiled in a new mystery when she is asked to search for a missing witch. She is a psychic medium, not a private investigator, but she agrees as a favor to her Aunt Isabel. She soon discovers that more than one witch has been kidnapped from the nearby town of Verity Falls. With the aid of some local ghosts, Diva needs to get to the bottom of this latest puzzle. She will need to call on magical assistance from her cousins and even one of her enemies. Haydn Creighton has been her secret obsession since she was a kid. Even though he’s engaged to a snooty and slightly unstable British witch, Diva can’t get him out of her mind. She already owes him a favor for accepting his help. After this latest mess, she could be digging herself in too deep to extricate herself. Just to complicate things, Diva’s cousin, Courtney, has decided she wants to marry Drew McTavish. The sheriff has no idea the lengths magical folk will go to in order to get what they want. He still firmly believes the supernatural isn’t real and he isn’t at all prepared for what will soon be coming. Upsetting A Poltergeist Never Ends Well: Framed for another murder that she didn’t commit, Diva Delaney once again finds herself neck deep in trouble. This time, she knows who is behind the crime, but proving it isn’t going to be easy when the evidence against her is so overwhelming. She will have to rely on the father of her high school nemesis to get her out of jail. Luckily, Roger Mayhew owes her one, thanks to Haydn Creighton’s blackmailing skills. As if Diva doesn’t already have enough problems, Nina Rivers warns her that she’s in danger. The witch might only have moderate power, but one thing she excels at is hunches. Her intuition is never wrong and she senses Diva is in extreme peril. Someone out there means her harm, but she doesn’t know who it is, or when they’ll strike. Personally, Diva suspects the danger will most likely come from Gillian Farque. Haydn’s fiancé already has it in for her. Thanks to the damage Diva did to her sports car, she’s going to make her pay big time. Diva’s cousins, Eve and Courtney are having problems of their own. Eve’s is a direct result of accompanying Diva on one of her jobs. Courtney’s is self-inflicted. Her decision to attempt to force the handsome sheriff to fall for her has repercussions she didn’t plan on. There’s a reason why conjurers are forbidden from casting magic on normals. Doing so often backfires on the caster horribly. cozy paranormal mystery, cozy mystery, witches wizards warlocks, supernatural occult paranormal, female sleuth, spells magic, ghosts spirits phantoms poltergeist
