Synopsis
Ever since her parents died when she was a girl, Marina has called St. Helena home. It’s quaint charm and beautiful vineyards soothe the loneliness inside, even if some of the residents are a little batty. But her giving nature and sizeable inheritance makes it hard to differentiate those who like her as a person from those that just want something. Except her sexy new neighbor. Josh Rossi wants nothing to do with her, and the constant banter is making her nuts. Then, a moment changes everything, shifting his cold shoulder into a hot kiss, leaving her to wonder if the bickering isn’t his own form of foreplay.

Beauty, brains, and adorable babbling aside, Josh needs to get as far and fast away from Marina Atwater as he can. No matter how much he desires her, she is the kind of woman who wants forever. And he isn’t the sticking sort. But as the quick remodel flip of his grandfather’s old house progresses, so does his feelings for his lovely neighbor. Her quirky dog and the even quirkier town are growing on him, too. Never having a sense of family or a permanent place to call his own, how is he suppose to contemplate setting down roots when home isn’t a possibility? Or is it?

A Kindle Worlds exclusive story set in Marina Adair’s St. Helena Vineyard series.

Review
Short and sweet. Love Thy Neighbor is a nice, easy read. Its full of mischief, friendship, new beginnings & most importantly, love.

Marina & Josh had a rocky start to say the least but what started out as a sparring match later became friendship & acceptance. Something Josh has lacked in most of his life.
Thanks to Marinas stubborn persistence she managed to worm her way into Joshs’ life and i enjoyed being along for the ride.

I loved St. Helena, the funky named stores, the quirky residents and neighborly nosiness. Who doesnt love a nosey town?

I desperately wanted Josh to stay, to consider St. Helena his home. I found myself egging Marina on lots, in hopes of her convincing him.

My stomach still hurts from laughing so much. I wanted a read that wouldnt make me cry, Love Thy Neighbor was recommended as such but alas… it made me cry anyway. Im a sucker for a great ending.

If you’re looking for a quick, funny and emotional read… you’ve found it.

Synopsis
Ghost hunting just got sexy.

It’s no secret amongst the Phantoms crew that lead investigator Sammy Hanesworth pretty much hates psychologist Cain McClutchen. The tension between them is taut with dislike…and unexpected attraction. Cain knows full well that something about him rubs Sammy the wrong way. But now they’re on a terrifying case-with orders from the network to get along or else.

Filled with past horrors, the Nebraskan site is more than creepy. And Sammy knows it all too well. It’s her hometown and near the place where her mother was killed. As the sinister presence makes itself known, Sammy finds herself turning to the last person she ever expected-Cain. Even as darkness surrounds them, tensions gives way to something bright and unexpectedly intimate. But nothing will prepare them for the evil they are about to face…

The safest place is with the guy she doesn’t trust…

Review
And she’s done it again! Kelly Moran has weaved a tale so captivating she had me laughing periodically, then sobbing into my pillow at 4:30AM. I kept promising myself one more chapter until i couldn’t see straight and called it quits for the night.

Sammy believes herself to be weak, has major trust issues and enough trouble in her life to damage anyone. But she’s such a strong character and i admired the hell out of her. Her attitude towards Cain made my stomach ache from laughing too much, they make a beautiful pair.

Cain, oh lovely Cain *sigh* My heart bled for him, i just wanted to put my arms round him, squeeze and never let go. Perfection, that’s the first word to come to mind when i think about Cain. Having suffered great pain at an early age he doesn’t give up, he keeps searching for that something to make him whole again. And he doesn’t half find it.

Ghost of You is darker than the others in the series, i think. The place they go, the history surrounding it, the ghostly inhabitants. Add them all together and they gave me a major case of goosebumps.

I finished this book a few hours ago now and i still cant stop thinking about it. Its one of the ones that stick to you like glue, such a heart-breakingly beautiful story. By far my favourite couple in the Phantoms series.

Paul has been in love with Kerry for ages, unwilling to compromise their friendship. As their investigation in a ghost town grows more intense, however, so does the chemistry between Paul and Kerry.

Sometimes the only way to find love is to face death…

Review
I absolutely loved Jackson and Avas’ story. I’ve never really been into ghost stories or anything of the sort but, Oh My! Kelly Morans’ writing is just magical. And this series just keeps getting better.

My first thought was poor Paul, what an amazing character he is. I totally fell in love with him from almost the very beginning. Then again, i think anyone who reads this book will too (and you totally should, its AWESOME).

Kerry is such a strong character throughout most of the book. She has her moments of doubt, but who doesn’t? She’s not just beautiful on the outside, Kerry has got the whole package. Lovely on the inside as well as out. Always putting others before herself. I loved her too ❤

Paul and Kerry make a dynamic couple. They have a lot to sort out but i prayed they’d get through it and come out the other end smiling. As usual, Moran writes a fantastic story that i just couldn’t get enough of.

Still loved all the other characters from the Phantoms group. The new man was a great addition and i can’t wait to see what else he brings to the team. #FLOVE

I promise you wont be disappointed in this series. If you haven’t read them yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
