Review: The Ghost Hunter - Lori Brighton

Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: 194
Published: September 2010, e-book
Find it at: Amazon

Ashley Hunter is intent on uncovering the truth about her father's disappearance. But Ashley realizes she's in for more than she bargained. Not only has she inherited a decrepit pub, she's also inherited ghosts and demons. Then Cristian arrives, a mysterious man who insists he only needs a room to rent. She believes him, until one by one her ghosts start disappearing...

As a fallen angel destined for a life of servitude, Cristian Lucius is relegated to protecting earth from unwanted spirits. But he can’t accomplish this daunting task alone. He requires assistance from the very woman who frustrates him as much as she intrigues him. Cristian is determined to ignore his intense attraction for Ashley, and focus on his mission. If they don’t work together, they won’t have a chance in hell of defeating the demon threatening their lives. The problem is getting Ashley to trust him. No easy task, for Cristian is the very man responsible for her father’s disappearance.

I don't read e-books that often, but there is one author I would make an exception for and that is Lori Brighton, so of course I wanted to read this paranormal romance.

A nice little village, but everything is not what it seems. Ashley arrives to look at the house she inherited from her aunt. The problem is that she sees ghost there, and she is troubled by this. She has seen them all her life, but people have told her she is crazy. Then Christian shows up and wants to buy the place. And as the ghost start to talk more things change, cos this little village is in big trouble.

What a village, vampires, werewolves, witches, leprechauns, ghosts, and demons. Not your average village, and the stories that could be told there.

Ashley is a nice heroine, she is scarred by what she sees, and of course she doubts her sanity since ghosts are not real. I feel sorry for her, but she is strong, and that is good.

Christian is the big ghost killer, ok not killer, his job is to make sure they move on. And this time he needs her cos there is also a demon in this place. The attraction is there at once, at least for him, she is just very angry with him.

There are some great other characters, the ghost like little Maggie, the witch Camille, and my fav of the bunch, Devon, a ghost with a hidden past Now I am not just saying this cos Lori Brighton has him described like Eric from True Blood ;)

This is a good paranormal romance that has a bit of everything. An adventure since some evil things just doesn't want to go, a budding romance, and trying to get my head around what the whole village is about.

Blodeuedd's Cover Corner: I could see him as an angel
Reason for reading: From the author
Final thoughts: Sexy ghost, nuff said.

    I like the cover as well...

    Congrats to Lori on the self pub thing as well..


  5. Oh nice!! I have enjoyed a previous book by Lori Brighton..looking forward to this one :)

  6. This does sound good. Anything with ghosts in and I am happy.

  7. I'm so glad I've got this one on my review pile too :)

  8. Melissa
    Good to hear :) I hope you like it..and Devon, lol.

    have fun! Watch out for those ghost

    Oh yes that was my fav part, of course not said in the book, but in a post I read

  9. EH
    I hope she does well :)

    This is something totally different, I do like that.

    Lol, really? It certainly had plenty of ghost for you then

    I hope you like it!

  10. This sounds like a book I would like too! Great review, hon! :)

  11. This sounds great and truly paranormal, as it seems that just about any supernatural creature is present in the novel.;) Cool!

  12. This sounds like a good one to pick up! Thanks! Especially with another Eric character! :)

  13. Ghosts, vampires, and demons - oh my! ;) Looks like there's definitely something for everyone in this ebook. I'm not always in the mood for a ghost story since they tend to mess with my nerves, but every now and then its a good change up.

    Glad you enjoyed this one Blodeuedd!

  14. Thanks Janna,
    I do think you would like it :)

    Things just popped up, but then I did except something cool since a girl who can see ghost meets a fallen angel

    Lol, yes, who would want to miss a ghost that looks like that

    Oh, they do? How come? I do not mind them as long as they stay...well nice, I do not know how to explain it. Here it was just some ghosts haunting the place, then one sexy ghost showed up, and then some disappeared

  15. Ohhhhh I like the sound of this. There should be more ghost stories out there.
    Will check it out!

  16. Nice review, but I think I'd have to read this is hardback so I could keep looking at the cover -- wow!

  17. He doesn't look angelic to me - he looks wicked! :)

  18. don't think I've ever read a book about a sexy ghost. Thanks for the review, sounds good!

  19. Sounds like a great fast read. Hey, aren't you suppose to be studying for school???? LOL!! You seem to be reading like a book a day lately!!

  20. Susi
    I wonder why there aren't?..they are dead of course, but so are vamps.

    Sadly it will only be out in e-book form, so no drooling over the cover ;)

    Hihi, well not angels sit on clouds and are sweet

  21. Brizmus
    Hm, neither have I ;) Oh I shouldn't focus so much on the ghost, but I liked him, lol

    I know! I haven't done anything else. But will open up some textbooks today..I promise.
    Last week was crazy but then those VD books, read them in a heartbeat

  22. I don't think I've ever read an e-book before. Sure, I've read books that were published in an ebook format but they've always been published in print as well. The ghosts in this one sound interesting though.

  23. Interesting. I like the cover! I'll have to think about this one though. Nice review. :)

  24. Thanks for your review - interesting but these fallen angels really are too frequent for my liking. BTW check my teaser

  25. What about the story telling quality Blodeuedd... what can you say about it? How compelling is it?

    Nice review! Thanks for the heads up!

  26. Ladytink
    Never? Wow, well who am I kidding, I have only read a few. I make an effort sometimes

    Think away, it's not going anywhere :)

    well he was not fallen in that sense, it was more tricky

  27. Cherry
    What to say, well I read it cos the story had something fun in it, and something I wanted to figure out

  28. AWesome review!! I don't read ebooks really at all, is that the only way this one is available? Didn't this author write historicals too?

  29. I dont read many ebooks either, but if the author is good, I'll make an exception too.
    Great review!

  30. Carrie
    Yes Lori writes historicals too, she has one coming out in the spring. But this one was selfpublished so only available in ebook form

    I sure wish I could get a look at an e-reader and read a book on one of those

  31. Sounds like a fantastic village to read about :) Great review :)

  32. Juju
    I would sure love to read more about it

  33. Hee, I really want this book now!
    Sounds sexy!

  34. WOW, my kind of book.

    I have to have this.

  35. Inked
