Welcome everyone to our reviewer showcase this week. I picked a hot, paranormal story I want to tell you about and I hope you like my pick for you. Though it has a bit of a Halloween theme, it honestly fits in perfectly any time of the year to read it. So without further ado, allow me to tell you about: Lonely No More by Selena Illyria.
Famous erotic romance writer, Will Moore, is just so full of himself that he treats everyone around him like garbage. In doing this all his life, when he finally meets Irena, a very powerful witch, he beds her on Halloween night then throws her out telling her that he doesn't ever want to see her again. Well, Irena won't take the nonsense he dishes her so she decides to place a spell on him and make him a ghostly form to wander around never being able to love someone in his human form.
Now, not being satisfied with his dilemma, every single time someone comes to visit his house with the intention to possibly buy it, he frightens them and chases them away guaranteeing that no one will own it except for him. For five years, he's able to frighten everyone away except for Alyssa Washington. There is something about this woman, beside the fact that she too is also another published erotic romance writer, that just captivates Will. She buys the house and from that day forward things are never the same for either one of them again.
I really enjoyed this book and felt it would be a perfect story that other readers would enjoy also. I loved the storyline and the author has a way of telling the story to make it entertaining. She sets the scenes perfectly and allows you to fall in love with her characters quite easily. I found myself even feeling bad for conceited Will and I hoped that he would be able to eventually reverse his spell. I loved this one so much that it's definitely a keeper in my library collection!

Lonely No More - Book Excerpt
William Moore, a famous erotic romance writer, is too full of himself to care for any woman he dates. He uses them and when he’s finished, breaks up with them before they ask for any commitment from him. He’s been like this for years and it seems like nothing or no one is going to stop his selfish behavior. That is until he sees a woman named Irena.
Irena is a witch and a powerful one at that. They shared sometime together having sex, but while she wanted more out of their relationship, Will just wanted to fill his sexual hunger. Bedding her on Halloween night, Will became so disgusted with her that he told her to leave and never come back. This frustrated Irena to no end and in retaliation, she cast a spell on him to remain a ghost indefinitely. Still remaining in his house, every time someone would come to look at the house to possibly buy it, Will would see to it that he chased them off guaranteeing his house wouldn’t be sold.
Five years later, Alyssa Washington, also another published erotic romance writer, looks at the house and falls in love with it. Her best friend, Jessica, who is the real estate agent, informs Aly that the place is haunted with the ghost of the famous author William Moore. Intrigued because he is her favorite author, she decides to buy the house. Once she moves in, neither Aly nor Will can ever prepare themselves enough for what is about to happen.
What exactly happens when Aly moves into the house? How does Will feel about Aly owning the house now? Do they learn to live with each other or does Will try everything in his power to make her leave? Does Will ever find Irena, the witch, again and make her reverse the curse? Is he ever able to become corporeal again or does he live out his days in his ghostly state?
I just loved this story! Ms. Illyria did a wonderful job telling her story and I thought the storyline was quite unique and fresh. She wove enough twists and turns into it to make it exciting and I couldn’t wait to find out if Will ever turned back into his corporeal form or not. I feel it’s a great story to read any time of year, but a perfect one to read this Halloween season! I highly recommend you picking up a copy and seeing for yourself just how entertaining this story truly is!
