My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Haunted on Bourbon Street by Deanna Chase is a Steel Magnolia Press publication. This book was originally published in July 2011. This book is currently available in the kindle store. (9-5-2013 it was listed for free. Please check price before buying) This book is also included in the box set "Forbidden Lovers". which is currently on sale for .99 in the kindle store. Again, please take note of the price before purchasing. Jade has moved to New Orleans at the urging of her friend Kate. The backstory of their friendship is that they came from a bad place and escaped with the aid of Dan, Jade's former fiancĂ©, and Kate's current boyfriend. Although, this is an awkward situation, Kate and Jade work to maintain their friendship. Jade begins work in a coffee shop that is located in the same building as a strip club. Her boss, Pyper and the club's owner, Kane, are business associates with a bit of a past. When Jade moves into her new apartment, Pyper helps her get settled. But, there is something or someone in Jade's apartment that is unsettled. Pyper calls in a friend, Ian, a ghost hunter, to discover what is going on in Jade's apartment. Meanwhile, Jade begins to have erotic dreams. The "ghost" appears to be somehow responsible. Jade is also fighting an attraction to Kane and has a disturbing run in with Dan that puts distance between her and Kate. While Jade is having steamy dreams, Pyper is having an all together different experience in her dreams. It appears that the ghost isn't as fond of Pyper, which could mean Pyper is in danger. Will Ian be able to determine who the ghost is? Will Kane and Jade be able to accept each others paranormal gifts? This book started off with a lot of zing. I was really into it. Somewhere around the middle of the book though, my mind started wandering a little. I love ghost stories. There are more vampires, werewolves, zombies and so forth than ghost these days. So, I was really happy about that. I also loved the 'dreamwalking' . That was a unique paranormal gift. The romance is good, but, the chemistry was a little forced to me. The story was a little uneven at times. Characters showed up in the middle of the book and then there became too many people to keep up with.  However, I still enjoyed the story for the most part and think the series has potential. Overall I give this one a C+. Check out all the value book from Steel Magnolia Press at <a href="http://smarturl.it/smp" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://smarturl.it/smp</a><br />
