As I mentioned in my last post, the ghost in my contemporary paranormal romance Eternally Yours, isn’t all that scary — especially not in his mind. Geoffrey Vereker, late poet and a womanizer in his day, still thinks of himself as a ladies’ man.
The trouble is that ghosts are inherently scary to most of us living ladies, and on the few occasions when Geoff has come across other ghosts, they can’t see him, nor he them. What is a would-be womanizing ghost to do?
At one point in the story, he is hovering around one of his haunts, admiring the beauty of the book’s main character, Lara Peale, and he tries to get a little a closer to her. She starts and says to the other living person in the room, “Where is that horrible chill coming from?”
Horrible? Geoff balks — then, recalling what he is, he glides away from her, his shoulders sagging. Poor Geoff!
As the story continues, Geoff learns that he has connections to Lara’s house, to the annoying (in his mind) local historian who keeps coming around to keep an eye on her, and to another ghost on the premises. Creepy!
