An addiction counselor and a security guard struggle to free a little girl and her father, two lost spirits trapped inside an abandoned mental asylum.

Addiction counselor Laura Horton returns from college to move in with an old friend and start her career. But her homecoming is jarring. Her friend moves out, leaving Laura alone with the gorgeous but intimidating ex-boyfriend—in a house that snugs up to an ancient graveyard.

Officer Miller Stanford is a man with a shattered past. His alcoholic dad destroyed their family, a weakness Miller is terrified will consume him too. The last thing he needs is a sexy, blonde addiction counselor watching his every move. When he begins to see specters in the dark, he starts questioning his own stability.

But Laura sees her too—a pathetic child-spirit searching for her father. Then Laura starts digging into old asylum records . . . Can Miller and Laura uncover the secrets of Talcott Hall without jeopardizing their love—and lives—in the process?

Spirits of the Heart by Claire Gem
(A Haunted Voices Novel, #2) 

Spirits of the Heart (A Haunted Voices Novel, #2)The perfect scenario for horror or the perfect opportunity to do the right thing? An empty insane asylum, long ago closed down and locked up, a cemetery for its residents, a two strangers caught up in an unforeseen muddle and a little lost girl who needs answers and her daddy to put her soul at peace. Claire Gem has outdone herself by blending an unlikely romance with a ghostly tale of darkness and suspense, all while twisting a few curveballs into a web of mystery and the paranormal.

SPIRITS OF THE HEART brings an addiction counselor and a security officer together as housemates through bad timing and perhaps even Fate. From their awkward beginning to the first time they began to see each other as more than strangers, a small ghostly vision tries to communicate what she needs, her father, long buried on the asylum property, or was he? As Laura finds herself drawn into the mystery of who and where the ghost child’s father is, Miller finds she may have something more than an active imagination and is drawn in to protect her from evil. Miller has his own secrets, heartbreaking and loving at the same time, his past is a nightmare he would rather forget, but he has made a vow and he is a man of his word, no matter what.

Laura finds Miller is like a still pond with so much beneath his calm surface, but can she trust him? As they get closer to the hidden answers of what happened to the last patients to be buried, their search becomes a death defying inferno of wandering ghosts, lost to their eternity of pain. What if they find the ghost girl’s father? Will his soul be spoiled and evil?

Hang on for a tale of determination, love and messages from beyond in an often nail-biting ghost tale where love has been found to once again, to win over even the vilest of evil.

Claire Gem knows how to cross genres without missing a beat while delivering great reading on each and every page!
