Tombstone Ghost Cowboy by Ruthie L. Manier
Skylar Cummings never dreamed time travel was possible until she finds herself in a room with a gorgeous but calloused cowboy from the Wild Wild West. Researching paranormal activity in Tombstone, Arizona, Sky assumed she was witnessing a ghost, but she’d stumbled through a portal to the past.
Jesse Clarke is a nineteenth century cowboy who’s renounced love after a devastating heartbreak. Women only desire his money, so he’s better-off without them … until a mysterious woman materializes in his room.
After a string of disastrous events, Skylar creates dangerous enemies and discovers herself detained. Jesse is summoned to escort her out of town before a lynch mob develops, but an unquestionable chemistry is growing between them. Will Jesse help her attempt to return to the twenty-first century, or can he convince the feisty woman to build a new future with him?
“If you like adventure, time travel, and western romance, Tombstone Ghost Cowboy is an entertaining and enjoyable romance that will leave you wishing you could time travel to find a cowboy of your own!”
5 Star Review: I love the author’s passion and dedication to Tombstone, Arizona as she fell in love the Old West, Bird Cage Theater, Big Nose Kate’s Saloon and Lookout Lodge just to name a few.
*****While on vacation to Tombstone, Arizona the author’s creative mind started to put together this ‘Tombstone Ghost Cowboy’, time travel story, romance, and westerns all in one book.
*****There are twenty-five well written chapters with characters that will grow on you. Chapter one starts out with main character Skylar Cummings on The Bird Cage Theater Tour. With an excited tease in her mind she chants under her breath, “Ghosts, ghosts, come out, come out, where ever you are.”
*****If you love a relaxing, enjoyable, fun, fast paced read, I invite you to join Skylar Cummings at Tombstone and she want her chant conjures up. Is Skylar ready for the adventure that awaits her?
*****To whet your appetite let me quote from Chapter Four where Skylar find herself pursued by Jesse Clarke (nineteenth century cowboy) which brings adventure and even danger into the mix:
*****“I’m consumed by this man when what I need to be doing is concocting a plan of escape. Wait a minute … how can this ghost cowboy’s heart beat out of control? Isn’t he dead … like centuries ago?
*****Before I can ponder on that any longer, we hear the distinct sound of shots being fired and horse hoofs pounding toward us. We turn back to peer over our shoulders. At least three riders, perhaps more, are riding fast as though there was a fire lit to the horses’ tails. It’s difficult to tell for sure with the dust storm their kicking up, but one thing’s for certain: they don’t look friendly.
*****“Damn! Hold on tight!” Jesse flicks the reins hard, and I feel his muscle-bound thighs kneeing Star into action to get him to run faster. I’m freaked out, trembling in fact, and nausea is showing its ugly face. I try to look behind me to see if they’re closing in.
*****“Keep your head down!” Jesse hisses through gritted teeth.
*****I curl up, trying to make myself as small as I can. My mind is whirling, thinking of all the horrible scenarios of how this horse chase could end.
*****I could be shot, or perhaps taken prisoner, beaten or, worse, raped. Deadwood pops into my head, and my sickness gets worse just thinking about it.
*****I turn my mind away from this line of thinking and push in thoughts of how I could help if we were to get captured. I wish I had my small purse gun, but it’s not even in this century. I’d ask Jesse to give me his pistol to fire at the bandits, but I gather without asking that it’s not an option. Perhaps he could slip me his knife, and I could tuck it in my dress. The hoofs are getting closer, and they keep firing their guns. Tears fill my eyes when I realize there’s nothing I can do to help.
*****I search Jesse’s face for any sign that he thinks we can survive, and all I spot is steal-headed determination. It scares the living hell out of me. Jesse would never give up nor give in. He’s a stubborn-minded cowboy from the 1880’s. Just like Tombstone is the “Town Too Tough to Die,” Jesse is a cowboy too tough to die. At least I hope that’s the case. Well, I guess he’s actually already dead.”
*****This is a delightful romance that leaves you wanting more.

Lover’s Curse (The Hemocil Society Book 1) by Ruthie L Manier
Will this man ‘Dark Eyes’ free Carra’s mind and break the Lover’s Curse?
He comes to her in her dreams, a force of nature like none other. The gravitational pull is unbearable, drawing her towards him like a moth to a flame. His dark eyes are fathomless, haunting her day and night. Who is this mysterious stranger, with the hungry eyes that call to her? Has he come to make her one with his soul, his Eternal mate, or as a predator she his prey, is he here to finish the kill?
Carra has had it rough for the last seven years struggling with amnesia. She often gets the hair standing up on the back of her neck sensation as though someone or something hunts her. The problem is she doesn’t know if this is a good thing or if she should be running. She fears the worst. If only she could remember…
Once she gives into her desire, which she assumes is inevitable, will there be any going back? Could this dream man have the tools to free her mind and end the Lover’s Curse, or will he be her ultimate demise?
From The Author: Lover’s Curse was my first published novel. It took me over three years to write it not counting the editing, cover and set up. I consider the book as my baby. The love Maximus and Carrabella felt for each other grew stronger with every word I wrote, and consequently I’ve had several people tell me they wish they had the same.

Lover’s Salvation (The Hemocil Society Book 2) by Ruthie L Manier
A witch on the run…
After Issy’s car broke down and she was forced to walk for miles to reach the nearest town, she practically fell into the Shit kick Bar out of the sweltering, Washington heat. Moisture glistened her delicate skin, her cheeks flushed a pale pink. She heaved huge gulps of air from the A/C above her head as though starving for the coolness it would bring. She leaned against the door as it creaked shut behind her, long, slim, parted legs barely held her small frame up. Her eyelashes fluttered down upon her skin As she brushed her damp hair out of her lovely face. Issy had no idea a room full of people witnessed her every move as she clung to to the door singing out the word, “Hallelujah.”
A Va’atacos on vacation…
Marcus realized the beauty was in trouble from first glance. A woman on the run and in crucial need of blood. Her hunger filled the crowded room, weakness abundant throughout her slowed motions. Not good. If he sensed the woman’s thirst, so did everyone else in the room. Marcus gathered she didn’t possess much time before she collapsed to the floor, her mind slipping into the darkness. Without warning an overwhelming need came over him to help and protect this woman. From that moment on he vowed to defend her, no matter the cost.

Lover’s Refuge (The Hemocil Society Book 3) by Ruthie L Manier
James the youngest of the Mantango clan needs his four brothers’ assistance and as always they’re armed and ready to defend their kin.
James fell hard for Mariah appearing before him so close he could kiss her full, sassy, lips smelling of cotton candy. Her stance is proud with the luscious body of a goddess. She’s covered from head to toe in a sheer body glove sprinkled with gold dust, darker gold in the more private areas making it hard for him to cast his eyes off her. He craved her from first sight, beautiful and feisty the perfect combination for a Va’atacos male.
Learning of her terrible past life, he has a burning desire to rescue Mariah and her daughter and won’t stop until the deed is done. He lost her once and now that she’s returned he swore he’d cross hell to fight the devil himself, before releasing her again.
Mariah didn’t reincarnate from the heavenly realm to find James in lust with the woman whose corpse she transferred into. Nor to discover that James rescued her child, Peach, only to be brutally attacked by the family responsible for her mortal death. Can she set her feelings aside long enough to reclaim a relationship with her daughter, bring the McCurry clan to justice, and rekindle the spark; she fears James might have lost for her?
From The Author: Lover’s Refuge was a fun book for me to write. Using Northern State Psychiatric Hospital was the idea of two of my co-workers. It was the perfect place for James the youngest of the Mantango brothers to go and heal, while him and his brothers set a plan to get their vengeance. It’s a historical land mark here in Sedro Woolley, Washington off of Fruit dale and Highway 20. If you ever get out this way you should go and tour the grounds and walk through the many paths, barns, and graveyard as the patients and the workers there did. It’s said to be haunted and every time I’ve went out there alone I swear someone is watching me.
