I just read a description for a paranormal book I wanted and now I've lost it. I need to find out the author or name of book.

A woman is a night club and looks across the room and sees her lover that has been dead two years. She cried over his grave! He has a red head in a pink dress against the wall and is bending down to her when he stops and turns around and looks directly at the heroine and smiles.

I goggled your description and I think you asked it on Amazon and figured it out. So to spare everyone else the curiosity, it's a short story by cynthia eden in the anthology

“In the Dark” in Belong to the Night

Release Date: September 2009
Publisher: Kensington Brava
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Length: Novella

Description

FBI agent and leopard shifter Sadie James’ undead ex, Liam, still arouses her deepest desires, distracting her from tracking the brutal rogue shifter who is terrorizing Miami. By teaming up with Liam, Sadie has a better chance of solving the case, but as passion consumes them, she stands to lose more than just her heart.

Excerpt

* * *

Her dead lover stood on the other side of the bar, rubbing his hand against the back of some long-legged redhead and looking very much alive.

Sadie James drew in a deep breath. Caught the scent of smoke. Expensive perfume. Sweat.

I went to that jerk’s funeral. Cried over his grave.

A grave he didn’t seem to be occupying.

She’d even taken flowers to the graveside.

The redhead laughed. Tossed back her head. The man turned, braced his hand against the wall behind her head and leaned in even closer to her.

Rage had Sadie’s back teeth grinding together.

She stalked across the bar, elbowing dancing men and women out of her way. Her fingers curled, and a hard fury tightened her body.

Two years. For two damn years she’d thought he was dead. While he was out there screwing redheads. Redheads who wore really trashy pink dresses.

He was bent over the woman now. His mouth poised over her throat.

Sadie was going to rip the bastard apart.

The redhead laughed. A high, tipsy giggle.

Sadie growled.

And even though she was still at least ten feet away, and the music blaring from the band jumping on stage was ear-splitting loud, Liam Sullivan stiffened. His dark head snapped up. He spun around, scanning the crowd.

His eyes, too damn blue and bright for a dead man, locked on her. She saw his stare widen and his lips began to curve into a smile—

A smile she’d knock off his still too-handsome face. “Liam.”

I wonder if that excerpt was in the back of a book.  Because it feels so familiar.
