Susan is overjoyed to see the man she’s going to marry. That joy, however, is overshadowed by a guilty conscience. Susan has been keeping a secret from her fiance, one that will have a big impact on their relationship and future.

When she finally reveals the truth to Tom, will it bring them closer together or ultimately drive them apart?
Welcome Home, Soldier is a 33,164 word contemporary romance novella.
When Claire Linden’s job sends her to the sleepy town of Gull Harbor, she never expects to encounter her ex-boyfriend.

Then, without explanation, he abandoned her on graduation day.

Claire is determined to rid her temporary home of its aggressive ghost, but Max soon realizes she’s facing a danger beyond the paranormal. When Claire risks everything to help a desperate spirit, Max must race to save her—before another tragedy tears them apart forever.
