GHOST GUARD is 60 percent paranormal romance, 30 percent action thriller, 10 percent comedy, and 100 percent fun.
It’s the cloak and dagger intrigue of James Bond with the supernatural eccentricity of Ghostbusters and the primal darkness of Underworld.
Set in Portland, Oregon, Ghost Guard follows a team of ghosts, working alongside living agents, with one sole mission — defend the spirit world.
Revolving around a fiery and budding romance between Rever Ott, a ghost with a penchant for the ladies, and Abby Rhodes, a clairsentient with no patience for Rev’s antics, the story is packed with action, intrigue, music, and humor. Rev and Abby don’t know whether to fight the enemies of the supernatural, or fight their love for each other. Ghost Guard is a fresh, unique perspective on the genre. Ghosts hunting ghost hunters. Fascinating characters, sizzling with passion.

Rev and Abby
If my Wife had to describe them she would say they are the perfect modern day Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Rever Ott is bold, charismatic, sensual, thrilling, driven with a healthy sense of humor. Abby Rhodes is smart, sophisticated, creative, independent, and has little tolerance for Rev’s games.
When I thought up the idea of a ghost special agent, a sort of paranormal James Bond character who uses (among other things) his masculine charms to defend the denizens of the spirit world, of course the first question that came to mind was—what would sex with a ghost be like?
Rever Ott is Ghost Guard’s top agent, a dead man of distinctive taste and ability with a devil-may-care attitude. He’s a one in a billion ghost. Fatally handsome, endowed with supernatural skills beyond almost any other spirit, he has one particular talent that proves quite handy. The art of seduction. Rev has the uncanny ability to get into a woman’s mind, tap into her innermost forbidden desires, and make her fall in love, and lust, with him. Rev uses his sexual talents with supreme confidence and cleverness. But there’s a problem. Sexual encounters take a tremendous amount of energy from a ghost. If a ghost is drained of too much energy, it spells certain doom. Because of this, when Rev has to employ such tactics, it irritates his teammates. Especially Abby Rhodes.
Abby is a young, beautiful, and gifted clairsentient with the ability to see the dead. One of only two living Ghost Guard agents, Abby is running from a past that still haunts her, driven by a desire to protect the innocent and defenseless spirits of the afterlife. She’s also driven by another desire, the desire to be with Rev, although her own stubbornness won’t allow her to admit it.
She takes her job seriously, and that’s why she absolutely hates when Rev goes off script and uses his seductive prowess during missions. She thinks it’s reckless, impractical, and way too risky. She knows what Rev knows. Sex is a dangerous game for a spirit. Expend too much energy and it can mean disaster. Expiration is what they call it. Death for a ghost. And Abby knows Ghost Guard can’t afford to lose Rev. But everyone on the team knows why Abby is really angry. They know the one secret she harbors, the dark and hidden truth behind her rage. She wants Rev. That much is obvious to everyone except Abby and Rev himself.
Sparks fly as Abby fights off Rev’s constant advances, and the sexual tension reaches a fever pitch when an immortal enchantress tries to steal Rev away. Abby knows Rev can fulfill any sexual desire. He can be the lover of every woman’s dreams. Romantic and passionate. Suave and strong. Touching all the right spots and hitting all the right buttons in ways no living man ever can. On the outside she swears she can’t stand his philandering, his casual relationships with other women, and his flippant behavior. On the inside, she’s angry at her own attraction to Rev. Because deep down she really wants the preternaturally carnal experience. Her intrigue has taken over, and she desperately wants to know the answer to the question—what would sex with a ghost be like?
