It was a dark and sexy night, and she was in Trouble!
Trouble, Pennsylvania, that is.
Lottie Santori doesn't realize when she arrives at the mysterious Seaton House that it's inhabited by Simon Lebeaux, a sinfully sexy recluse. While wildly attracted to the dangerous stranger, she's also determined to uncover the secrets of his past, and to find out whether Seaton House is merely a dark and dangerous inn on a mountain, or if it truly is inhabited by the ghost of a notorious serial killer...and his victims!
It's gothic romance...Blaze style...and it's Leslie Kelly at her best!
When Lottie arrives on his doorstep, Simon sets out to send her away-pronto. But Lottie is attracted to Simon & she has a job to do. A little white lie-along with some minor auto mechanical shenanigans-will buy her the time she needs. And he could certainly provide her with the anonymous sexual adventure she's been looking for.
But why are all these mysterious things happening at the Seaton mansion? Are they ghosts from the past...or an elaborate hoax perpetrated by his ancestors? And why in the world do all these 'accidents' keep happening to her?
I was so enthralled while reading this that I lost track of time. Best "Blaze" mystery to date.

Great read - super fun. Really loved the refreshing change - told in first person, alternating perspectives between Lottie and Simon from chapter to chapter - funny, silly at times, and quick satisfying read!
It was a dark and sexy night...and she was in Trouble. Really! Budding journalist Lottie Santori is dying to escape her overprotective family and experience a little secual adventure. And her upcoming, out-of-town (thank God!) job, researching scary old Seaton House, offers some very definite possibilities...Lottie has always had a thing for the tall, dark and mysterious type, and her reluctant host, sexy Simon Lebeaux, looks as if he can give her the thrill of a lifetime. But when she finds herself at the center of several surprising "accidents", Lottie can only wonder if she'll last that long...
