Haunted, schmaunted. Bastian, infamous playboy and the current Earl of Weymouth doesn't believe his English castle is haunted. So what if a few windows and lightbulbs shatter? That happens. OK, bleeding portraits are hard to explain... But he is not going to be deterred. Not even by Jane, a seductive-as-sin grad student who has assigned herself the task of ghost hunting at Stormclyffe Hall. All Bastian wants is to restore his ancestral home, not be distracted by her curvy hips, bedroom eyes and gorgeous smile- Fine, maybe he does want to get naked with Ms. GhostBuster, but that's only because she practically follows him around, nosing into his daily life. And yes, because she looks so damnably sexy, however, he refuses to give into lust. No matter how much she tempts him. But when the ghosts up the ante and try to kill them, Bastian realizes he will have to keep Jane close. Very, very close. Purely to protect her, of course. At least that's what he tells himself. All bets-and some clothes-are off, as he shows her what a real earl is made of. *This book was previously published in 2014 by Entangled Publishing and has been re-released.

...No. She stopped herself; Tashy was wrong. Why do I even feel bad about this? She took a deep breath and looked back out across the dusty paddock from where she had just trudged home. Tashy just wasn't the friend for her, and that's what it was—her high and hopeful expectations had been crushed again. Oh, she had wanted to make them work so badly, and now...It's not my parents' fault, she told herself in an attempt to cool the heartsick feeling that surged through her veins. . .It was hard to accept that this was it; another dream was shattered, another chance for a friendship lost. But maybe it wasn't so bad this time; maybe Tashy was never meant to be her friend. Maybe it was all for the better... Fifteen-year-old Irene Anderson just wants to fit in, but somehow, something always seems to get in the way. Her best friend, Gloria, lives miles away across the ocean. When Irene's neighbour, Sharon, moves to the city for Uni, it's like she suddenly becomes a different person. Will their friendship ever be the same again? Then there's Tristan Witmer, her little preschool-age chum. But as they had both grown towards adulthood, sadly, their relationship had changed too. He just wasn't the same anymore, and Irene had to admit her feelings had changed towards him lately; nervous butterflies always found her stomach whenever they were together. Just maybe he feels the same way about me...But when tragedy strikes the Witmers, fate threatens to separate them forever. Maybe I will never know; the dreaded thought haunts her mind daily. Can she banish all the shadows that life has thrown at her, and discover her true self despite her challenges?

The endlessly inventive mind of Joe R. Lansdale whips up yet another batch of stories to amaze, surprise, and entertain you. His new offering covers a lot of territory, producing what may be his best short story collection yet. One tale concerns an East Texas mule race in the early 1900s that proves to be an unexpected turning point and learning experience for the main character, a lifelong loser. It also chronicles the unusual circumstances of the race, which include a friendship between a rare white mule that can run like the wind, and his friend, a loyal, spotted pig. Another tale drops us into the disturbed mind of a mass murderer and his friendship with the shadows. Two others stories reintroduce us to the supernatural adventures of Reverend Rains, the flawed hero from Lansdale's cult favorite novel, Dead in the West. Here ghouls prowl and werewolves howl. There's a poetic collaboration with Melissa Mia Hall about the nature of loneliness and loss that echoes back to science fiction stories of an earlier time, as well as a famous, award winning novella reprinted here for the first time in several years about a clutch of unusual crime solvers. Read about a world where the dead almost rule, and venture into an alternate universe that is the background for perhaps the strangest tale of all, an adventure concerning an earnest and horny steam shovel named Bill, and his challenge to do the right thing at all costs. It's the usual wild and crowd pleasing display of what has become a subgenre of modern literature as only Joe R. Lansdale can present it.
