Selena James, psychic who also can communicate with spirits, writes articles on these topics for a newspaper. When a writer insults her during a television interview, a challenge is issued.
Trent Sanders, extreme skeptic of all things paranormal, is so cynical that he even writes books on the subject. While moving his things into a dusty old hotel, he cannot believe he accepted such a ridiculous challenge, but he is determined to persevere.
Selena has challenged Trent to spend two weeks in a haunted hotel with her in order to convince him that ghosts exist. Right away, two naughty ghosts introduce themselves to Selena, but refuse to show themselves to Trent. The ghosts cannot be intimate themselves, so they are determined to live vicariously through Trent and Selena. Selena is sure that Trent is bent on ruining her reputation and tries to view him as the enemy, but he is just way too sexy for her to hate. When Trent and Selena make a hot little wager of their own, the stakes get even higher.
Double Dating with the Dead was pure fun to read. The chemistry between the two main characters was extremely entertaining and the addition of the ghosts made it even more exciting. Additionally, the involvement of the mothers brought even more humor to the story. Ms. Kelley’s talent for writing snappy and intelligent dialogue shines brightly in this novel. Dripping with sensuality and desire, the sex scenes were truly some of the best I have ever read. It is surprising that my fingers are not burned because this is one smoking hot book.
