Lies Come True

EXCERPT

She turned back up the trail, and pushed herself to go forward. The next few strides hurt less than the first. She picked up her pace, and squinted into the last of the sunlight, as her heart pounded in her chest.
She took deep breaths as she pushed herself harder, confident that she was gaining ground, and when she reached a clearing by the lake, she looked back.
It was a man, or what looked like one, but his face was white. And red.

BLOG TOUR and *RRBB REVIEW*: Haunted Love by Jessica Frances






Paranormal Romance
Date Published: February 23, 2015


SYNOPSIS:

My name is Thea Bell and I was murdered.

I always assumed that death was the end. So when my life was cruelly taken away from me, I never thought I would get a second chance to say what I needed to.

But then I was given a choice, a choice that allowed me to see the people I had left behind, and I knew I had to take it.

I wanted to say a proper goodbye. I needed justice for what happened to me.

But even in death, things rarely go to plan.

I never expected to meet him. I didn't anticipate falling in love. I hadn't considered the repercussions of coming back. I never realized I would put another person in danger.

I didn't know my actions were going to haunt us forever.

My name is Detective Aiden Mercer, and I think I have gone insane.

I am seeing the murder victim of my current case alive and in the flesh, and that is simply not possible.
I can see her, hear her, touch her. She’s real to me, however I know this cannot be real. Right?

But try telling my heart that, because as I grow closer to catching Thea’s killer, I also fall deeper into trouble.

Because love is rarely anything but trouble and I know this love will haunt me forever

EXCERPT:
 I leave Aiden scanning over the boxes, moving back through my house and taking time
to look over the photos I have hanging up. It’s strange how I had them along my walls, in my
eye line for years yet never took the time to look at them. I used the photos as decoration
instead of a reminder of the good times I shared with friends and family as well as the few
amazing places I got to visit.
I take my time now, smiling at the memories sparked of Flynn, laughing at the reminders
of the fun times we shared and yearning for the places I will never get to visit. I had a list of
countries and activities I wanted to do for my summer vacation. I wanted to take at least one
trip every summer and slowly work away at the list. Now I’ll never get to see any of those
places, never have the chance to skydive in New Zealand, eat gelato in Italy, or go skiing in
Switzerland. The most exciting thing I managed is a school field trip to New Orleans where
we toured the main tourist destinations, and I ate beignets and gumbo.
I shake my head, slowly moving through the lower level of my house, checking over the
mess made from the forensics people who appear to have coated every surface looking for
foreign fingerprints. I don’t find anything suspicious here or out of place. There is nothing I
can see that is missing, and nothing screams to me that there is a clue here. While I’m
disheartened to still have nothing to give Aiden to go on, I stare up my staircase, knowing I
will need to check up there, too.
With each step, my legs grow heavier. Soon, I’m dragging my feet. I purposely check
every other room, leaving my bedroom for last. I’m dreading what will happen when I glance
back inside that room. I feel ill as I approach the still ajar door.
I know I need to get this over with. I might remember something about the murderer in
there. If anything is going to be amiss that might help us figure out who my killer is, it will be
in my bedroom.
But how am I supposed to enter the room where I lost my life?
The room where I was beaten and violated?
Even if it means catching my killer, can I face what I might see in there? Do I really
want that memory etched into my brain? Isn’t already having a good idea what I went
through bad enough?
Then again, what if he is out there right now, terrorizing other women? What if my
reluctance to walk into this room means another person will lose their life?
I take a deep breath, my hand reaching out to push the door open.
“You don’t have to go in there,” Aiden tells me.
I glance over my shoulder, seeing both worry and fury in his eyes. “I do.” I sound more
sure then I feel, but I force my feet forward. Within two steps, I am standing inside my
bedroom.
The story of Aiden and Thea.
When the story first begins, we meet Thea on the worst (and last) day of her life. She dies at the hand of a mystery man.
Aidan is brought in as a detective on Thea's murder.
When Thea gets to the after-life (I am assuming it is a version of Heaven), she insists she HAS to return. Her guide explains that she will only be visible to one person, and she has no choice as to who that one person will be.
As it turns out, Detective Aiden Mercer is the one that sees her. She is so real to him that they can touch, she can interact with his items (she frequently cooks for him), etc.  As you would expect, he thinks he is going absolutely crazy.  They do begin working together to solve her murder.
I believe the title to be completely accurate, as this love story is haunting.
I cried throughout the end, having my own version made up, yet satisfied with the author's version best.
I highly recommend this story! It is sweet, smart, compelling, and at times, very heart-wrenching.

GMAOYTeaser2
1de41-excerpt The lightening shines again in our room and she rolls to face me. Her beautiful lips are puckered and her cheeks are stained with tears from earlier. I slide into bed and pull her close to me. She snuggles right up and my heart feels like it is going to explode. This is so right. How can she not realize it?
My eyes slowly shut and I’m off into a peaceful sleep with the love of my life.
It feels as though my eyes just shut when I am jolted awake by Beth screaming out into the night. The blood curdling sound has me on my feet before I even know what is going on. I try to blink the sleep from my eyes and focus on the room.
That’s when I see her. In bed curled into a fetal position shaking uncontrollably. “Beth, Beth baby, what’s wrong?” She doesn’t loosen the grip on her legs. I don’t want to scare her any more than she is.
She jerks away from me when I place a hand on her shoulder trying to calm her. If it’s possible I think she actually curls into herself even more. I need her to focus on me. Moving swiftly around the bed to be in front of her, I crouch down to her eye level.
“Beth, I need you to look at me.” I move the matted hair away from her eyes. It takes a few minutes before I see her white knuckles move and start gaining color. Then her eyes meet mine. They seem so empty and scared.
When she finally seems to focus, she lunges at me. I move quickly to catch her body flying at me. If I didn’t know she was truly scared out of her mind, I would have laughed because she knocks me on my ass.
I just hold her. Caress her back and hair. She isn’t crying. If I had to guess I’d say she is in some sort of shock. Time seems to stand still. Then her body starts shaking again. “Beth, shhhhh, it’s going to be okay. Please talk to me. I’m right here. I’m not going anywhere.”
Her breathing seems to calm down and the shaking slows. “Where’d you go baby? Come back to me.” Feeling like I can move without scaring her, I cradle her to my chest and move to the bed again. Siting her on my lap, I rest my back on the headboard.
She looks up and tries to back out of my embrace. “Oh God, Jake, I’m so sorry.” Her hands try to cover her face. “That hasn’t happened to me since I was in school. Fuck how embarrassing.”
Grabbing her hands I pull them away. “You said you wouldn’t shut me out. Elizabeth look at me. What happened?”
Her face falls and she looks away.

PLAYLIST:






EXCERPT:

“And don’t ever forget that, my friend.” I remove the dipstick, glance at the oil level, then put the stick back in. Wiping my hand off with a rag, I step back from the car. “It looks like it might—” My back bumps into Ayden.
He hardly ever instigates contact first, expect on rare, amazing, wonder-filled occasions, so I allow myself to enjoy the earth-shattering moment and breathe in the feel of his body heat.
I smile stupidly when he doesn’t move away. “Whatcha doing?”
“Nothing.” His voice is uneven, revealing his nerves. “I was just…” He releases a breath then places his hands on my hips. Surprisingly, his fingers are steady. “I just wanted to touch you.” He rests his forehead against the back of my head and inhales deeply. “And to make sure you’re okay.”
“Okay about what?” My eyelids drift shut as I lean into his touch.
His simple touches are better than light.
They awaken my body and bring it to life.
More. More. More, my body is craving.
The addiction is potent, consuming, aching.
Leaves my body wanting, pleading, shaking.
Sometimes I feel like I’m withering, fading.
Fading. Fading. Fading.
Into him.
“About … about what happened the other day … when I sleepwalked.” His fingers grasp onto me, and his chest crashes against my back as his shallow breaths turn ragged. “I know I probably freaked you out. I’ve been meaning to ask you about it, but I didn’t want to upset you, so I decide
d to wait until stuff cooled off.”
“I’m not upset about what happened.” And not surprised one little bit that my theory about him was right. I turn around and loop my arms around him. “I’m just worried about you and how you’re handling it.”
“I’m fine,” he swears, searching my eyes for my true feelings. He forgets, though, that I’m like an open book.
