Though Devon's story is fiction, the events that led me to write this actually occurred. There is indeed an inn in New England that resembles the Stafford Inn and while spending the night there, a number of bizarre incidents happened. They are detailed as accurately as a novel allows in
the opening pages of this book.
As a long time student of Parapsychology, itis my belief that anyone can experience psychic phenomena. Unlike my heroine, Devon James,most of us choose to ignore it. Sometimes fate
intercedes, changing the course of events until we simply no longer can.

force of his gaze held her still. There was something different in his
eyes now, something dark and unreadable.
"I know I'm
going to have to stop you, that I should stay as far from you as I
possibly can..." A dark, long-fingered hand slipped through her hair,
cupped her head and tilted it back. "Then I look at you, watch the way
you smile, listen to your laughter. In your eyes I see your worry,
your concern, and all I can think of is how it might be to hold
you...to kiss you." His thumb moved back and forth along her jaw
and Devon trembled.
"I don't know
how I'm going to stop you. But I can find the answer." He bent his
head and settled his mouth over hers, fitting their lips perfectly
together, then he softened the kiss and drew her in.
