Merry MacKenzie finally moves into an apartment of her own in Strange Neighbors by Ashlyn Chase. Little does she know that she has been drawn to this particular building by arcane forces but she soon discovers that there are a wealth of unusual residents including a pair of witches who make ends meet by working on telephone psychic and sex hotlines. A sizzling hot landlord, shapeshifters, a ghost who doesn’t want anyone living in his former apartment and a busybody building manager all combine to make Merry’s first home away from home memorable. Jason Falco, superstar baseball pitcher, purchased the building as an investment and occupies the penthouse floor but hadn’t quite realized the scope of talents his new building housed. His immediate attraction to Merry flowers into a deepening relationship but each of them has mysterious secrets that have to be addressed before their relationship becomes exclusive.
Strange Neighbors is a cute quirky romance full of eccentric characters, most of whom have a paranormal talent. Merry is a wholesome goodhearted nurse who seems just a little too naive to be on her own but quickly learns to access her inner sensual goddess. The whirlwind romance that ensues seems a little bit too abrupt and the solution to the resident busybody a bit too pat but a fun read nonetheless.
When all-star pitcher and shape-shifter Jason Falco buys a small apartment building, he sees it not only as an investment but as a place to escape the demands of major league baseball. That is, until he meets his tenants— a sarcastic unemployed crime-fighter vampire; a wereraven with a morbid sense of humor; a super-friendly salesman werewolf; and two witches with an owl who work as phone sex actresses. Not to mention a beautiful, all-too-human nurse. But with all the hooting, howling, and hollering going on, how's an all-American shapeshifter supposed to sweep a girl off her feet?
