LADY IN WHITE is a sizzling, sensual paranormal romance guaranteed to leave you tingling.

Serena Reilly has come to 'Bride's Inn' to care for it's owner, elderly Clarise Masters. One dark and stormy night, a darkly handsome, mysterious visitor arrives at the old inn, scaring....and kissing Serena senseless. But the handsome rogue, a man who Serena comes to know as her dark prince, a man who stirs Serena's deepest, most erotic desires, isn't all that he seems...and neither is she.

As Seth and Serena's mutual attraction grows, so does the mystery surrounding Bride's Inn, and the strange apparition that haunts its legendary halls. Serena and Seth stand to lose far more than their hearts when the 'Lady in White' shows up. When Serena's life is threatened, it's up to Seth to save his fiery-haired goddess.


"Let me in, Serena," he crooned in her hear, his breath warm, his voice languid. "Let me in."
She paused, undecided, afraid that if she let him in, she'd never let him go. But when he pushed her blouse aside and started a tender assault on her breasts, teasing and taunting her nipples with the pads of this thumbs, she let go of that fear and let desire take hold once more.
He slid down the length of her body, his hands skimming her waist, his fingers working to release the buttons on the waistband of her skirt. As he slid the zipper down, she heard the metal catch scrape against the teeth of the zipper, the sound sending shivers down her spine. She wiggled her hips, forcing the skirt down past her thighs and calves, kicking it away in her haste to bare all to him.
He chuckled low in his throat. "Anxious, are we?" His black eyes were filled with heat, and she hoped, a longing to match her own.
"Oh, shut up," she countered, fitting her thumbs into the waistband of her panties, shoving them down her legs. "And help me."
Seth threw back his head and laughed. "Oh Serena, you are an absolute delight."
She stopped, the panties midway down her thighs. Men had said they loved her, but no man had ever said she was a delight. She wasn't sure if it was a good thing or not, but her thoughts fled as Seth continued his sensual assault.
His large hands were gentle as he took over the job of sliding her panties down the rest of the way, easing them over her feet and toes. He grasped hold of her silky underwear, placing it near his nose and inhaled, shutting his eyes as he breathed deep. Then he opened his eyes, revealing the large, dark pupils, dilated with passion. He smiled wickedly as he gazed at her, his eyes traveling the length of her body, from the tips of her toes to the nest of curls between her legs.
"So, you really are a true redhead, aren't you?"
Serena tried to nod her head, but she couldn't move, her body pulsing with every look he gave her.
He grinned again. "That was a rhetorical question, sweetheart." Seth slid his long body next to hers. Grasping her silk panties in one hand, he brushed them up the inside of her thighs. "No answer is necessary."
Serena's body went up in flames, her legs opening wide when he slid the silky material against her labia. The only thing she found necessary in that moment was that he should keep doing what he was doing…and a whole lot more.
"You like that," he whispered, leaning down to kiss her.
She moaned into his mouth and twined her arms around his neck, pulling him closer.
He continued his ministrations, sliding the soft, silky panties against her until Serena became mindless with need. Soon, his fingers replaced the silk material, as he stroked and played in her nest of curls, teasing and taunting her little pearl of flesh. His fingers came away wet, their tips glistening with her essence. He placed his index finger in his mouth, shutting his eyes as he tasted her.
"Delicious," he murmured, his voice husky, opening his eyes to reveal their dark, smoky depths.
She reached over, running a hand over his bare chest, enjoying his sharp intake of breath when she placed the tip of her tongue on the jagged scar on his shoulder. Her tongue traveled down to his pecs, to his hard, copper penny nipples. She loved the feel of them, loved the feel of the silky, dark hair that lined his chest. Reaching down, she released the button on the waistband of his jeans, slid the zipper down, and reached in to massage and knead his large sac, reveling in the feel of him.
Seth reached around and tugged her close, pulling her flush against his body, his movements anxious and restless as he struggled out of his jeans and underwear. Serena helped, but her hands shook as she pushed the clothing down over his hips and buttocks. When he lay naked before her, she sucked in a breath at the size of his penis, reaching out to grasp it in one hand, running her thumb across the tip where a drop of his semen shone. Serena rotated the pad of her thumb on his swollen member, massaging his glistening essence into the tip.
He moaned in response, resting his forehead against hers, placing his hand over her hand. "I'll come right here," his voice sounded ragged, almost pained.
Seth removed her hand, bringing to his lips where he kissed each finger. Then he removed her blouse and bra, his movements swift and urgent. For just a second, apprehension crept in.
It had been a long time since she'd been with a man. If Seth found her wanting…she didn't know what she would do, or how she would feel.
