Spooktacular Seductions blog tour: spotlight on Lisa A. Adams

I am thrilled to be able to bring today's tour to you. Spooktacular Seductions is the latest anthology put out by Roane Publishing. Some of you may not know that I am part of the Roane Publishing family (my NA urban fantasy Ordinary World is included in the Portals anthology, I have a Free Read "All For Nothing" and an upcoming New Adult summer romance in 2015), so sharing in the joy and excitement of these fellow authors is an honor. For my stop on this last day of the tour, I am shining the spotlight on author Lisa A. Adams who wrote Spooky Hollow Café. Lisa is sharing an excerpt from her story. I hope you enjoy it and enter the giveaway.

Bewitching Gypsy by Linda Carroll Bradd
Fiona Mikolas is an outcast, branded by her fiery red hair and a purple birth mark—both signs of the devil. Two years earlier, she survived an influenza outbreak that claimed her peddler husband, Gregos, and her baby son, Tito. Now she lives a solitary life, traveling a circuit of southern states in America and selling healing potions. Until the night of All Hallow’s Eve, when her lonely life is changed by the arrival of two strangers in her camp.
Beaten and robbed, rancher Hagan Fletcher stumbles toward the light of a campfire in south Texas, intent on finding a way to retrieve his stolen stallion. When he awakens, he’s forgotten his name and how he came to be in the company of an exotic beauty. Fiona’s ways are a mystery but when her quick-thinking saves his life again, he looks deeper beneath the surface to who she really is.

Garden of Souls by Michelle Ziegler
Something, or someone, pulled Miranda to purchase the old carriage house.  It was a great deal, most likely because of the cemetery or the unexpected resident, Thomas. The ghost she finds within the sanctuary of her new home should have scared her. Instead she finds herself falling in love with him. 
Now, a few days from Halloween, Thomas continues to push her to live her life.  He wants one night though; the one night of magic for the dead.  Torn by her love for Thomas and her need for reality and human contact, Miranda takes a chance with Sean. Someone who’s alive. The guilt is eating away at her. Sean’s nice and he hasn’t run off yet, pushed away by her craziness. Miranda knows she can’t split her herself. 
Choosing her heart’s desire doesn’t seem possible, but living and loving another seems like a life riddled with pain.

If This Be Madness by Echo Shea
Don’t let me go…
Those are words that break her. When the person you love most is gone, how do you let go?
And, more importantly, who will you be once you do?

Ghost of a Chance by Lily Carlyle
After years of having her college boyfriend Sean as an ex with benefits, Julie believes he is finally, irrevocably out of her life. Forever. And it breaks her heart.
Until one night he shows up at the neighborhood hangout—with a mysterious job, luxurious car, and fabulous digs. Not to mention a new determination to woo Julie.
Even as her mind says no, her heart—and other parts of her body—is saying yes, yes, yes!

Do You Believe in Ghosts by Anne Higa
Jeff Austin-LeGrange has been fleeing from the remnants of his dark and haunted childhood his entire life. The past always catches up to us, and his is no exception.
Alice Hopkins, Jeff's high school sweetheart, has tried to forget him and tried to move on. You never forget your first love.
When Jeff's mother dies and Alice's father falls ill, the two are forced to confront their mutual history and their deepest desires. One thing is sure: neither of their lives will ever be the same again. Perhaps, the past can be overcome. Perhaps, it is not too late to believe in miracles. Perhaps, more than one couple will be reunited this Fall.
Who can say? With a little magic, anything is possible.

Encantado by Havva Murat
Spending Friday night in an abandoned amusement park sounded like an awesome idea to motherless, teenage track star, Remy Bordeaux—empty rides with no queues, and time alone with his best friend’s alluring sister, Rafaela, was sure to make for a memorable night.
But Friday night at Six Flags became memorable for all the wrong reasons when the park turned out to not be so abandoned after all. Rafaela goes missing after getting cozy with Remy, and everyone thinks that Remy is responsible, even his best friend.
It will take another trespassing trip to Six Flags for the truth of Rafaela’s disappearance to be revealed and for the riddle of Remy’s birth to be unraveled.

Spooky Hollow Café - Lisa A. Adams

Aggie Pierce owns a quaint little spot, the Spooky Hollow Cafe'. Tourist come from all over the nation to her confections diner for the entertainment. Real live interacting ghosts make appearances once a day, you just don't know when.

But, when a ghost's crush becomes an obsession, just how far will a hero have to go to save Aggie's life?

“Now, you know we can’t make any promises.” Roderick manifested next to Elizabeth, and he stuck out his tongue at Aggie. Elizabeth jabbed her elbow into his side, and he shouldered her arm. “Back off, Liz. We may be dead, but I’m still older than you.”
Elizabeth rolled her eyes. “By a whole twelve minutes.”
“Will you two cut it out? Even after more than a century you can’t get a long?” Aggie sighed. “I know the spell to lock the both of you away for a millennia if you defy me this time, and I certainly will not hesitate to cast it. Do you understand me? Roderick? Elizabeth?”
The pair vaporized as Jason marched through the doors into the kitchen. “Two more orders of the Slit Your Throat Strudel, and an order of the Shoo Fly Pie. And, I seem to be out of this tea. Is there anymore made?”
Aggie was lost in Jason’s piercing green eyes. He was a good six inches taller than her, and his confidence was a magnet for any woman. Her female customers certainly agreed. Their gazes had followed him about the room.
“Oh, yeah. Sorry. If you’ll grab a strudel from the pantry, I’ll grab the pie.”
Jason nodded, then made his way to the cupboard, vanishing behind the door.
“Pie. Right.” She turned to the counter and glanced over her shoulder once more. A flick of her wrist, and two brown and red Shoo Fly Pies sat neatly on the granite.
Aggie jumped at the banging from behind her. “Really?” She ran to the store room door and slid the lock to the open position.
Jason darted out. “What are you trying to play here? Locking me in there!”
“Jason, calm down. It wasn’t me.”
“Well, I don’t believe in all that hocus pocus ghost stuff, so how about you just keep me out of your little games.” Jason grabbed the pie and burst through the kitchen doors to the dining room.
Aggie spun on her heels. “Which one of you did it?” The troublesome pair appeared and shook their heads simultaneously. “Yeah, like I’m going to believe that.”
