Sara-Kate's Spirit

Fallen spirit guide Sara-Kate leads a quiet life on Earth cocooned inside her home. After several tragic incidents in her past human life and current spirit life, she feels safer within her own walls, doing good deeds from within.

One night in her spirit form, she offers comfort to a dying man trapped inside his car after an accident. A few hours later, she opens her door to the same man who died earlier that night.

Reed Thayer doesn’t know he is dead. What he does know is something profound happened to him, and that he is somewhat different, but cannot put a finger on what is different.

Sara-Kate is both saddened and a bit angry at being saddled with the dead man. She doesn’t feel it is her responsibility to tell him of his demise, and truthfully, she doesn’t know how to tell him.

As time passes, Sara-Kate and Reed discover they have a lot in common, and are drawn together. Sara-Kate knows that she must tell Reed the truth soon, and when she does, it may destroy both their newfound love.

On the surface, "Sara-Kate’s Spirit" seems like a light little paranormal—it is not. Although it is novella-size, it is crammed full of emotion and deep character development. The reader feels for Sara-Kate, for her past pain and her current predicament with Reed. I welcome that the love scene does not read as a sex manual, but rather a beautiful act of love. The story is of certain duality between a human life and a spirit life. You rarely see a spirit guide as a character in a romance, and "Sara-Kate Spirit" does not disappoint.
