The woman he loves has come back from the dead—and unfortunately, this rose is all thorns.
Finally, after two years of mourning, Zac's brother has agreed to sell the house he all but abandoned after the death of his wife.
In the spirit of helping his brother move on, and of course the continuous harassment from his sister, Zac agrees to take a much-needed vacation from work and pack up what remains of Rose's belongings. What his family doesn't know—actually, no one knows—is that Zac never quite stopped being in love with Rose, not after they broke up in high school and certainly not after she married his brother.
Zac is well aware that a weekend spent packing up what's left of the only woman he's ever loved will be little more than torture…with a side of emotional hell (alcohol sold separately).
Upon arrival, he immediately notices how the house and the surrounding garden have fallen into disrepair. It isn't until nightfall that he truly starts to realise just how…disturbed the house really is. After a few doors slam and the phrase 'writing on the wall' comes to life before his very eyes, Zac is terrified enough to flee. But before he can make it to the door, he is confronted with the ghost of his sister-in-law, Rose.
However, the sultry seductress before him and his sweet, shy Rosie are two very different entities. And as much as he would like to believe otherwise, it seems this rose is all thorns.
Can he stop himself from touching her regardless?
Reader Advisory: This book contains rough sex, with a touch of dubious consent.
