She''s betting on a ghost. And taking a chance on love… 

Losing her memory in a mysterious tragedy years before left Mojo Sheepshanks not knowing who she is or how to get on with her life. Now the wisecracking Mojo, who hangs out at Bad-Ass Bert''s Biker Saloon in Cave Creek, Arizona, suddenly begins seeing ghosts…and discovering clues to her real identity. Meanwhile, sexy cop Tucker Darroch has her heart racing and her passions revved up to maximum overdrive, but is it safe to let go and love the man? Really love him? 

Everything becomes even more complicated when a wealthy man claiming to be Mojo''s long-lost uncle turns up. Not only that, she''s being stalked by her ex-con half brother! As she and Tucker work to uncover the facts, she''ll need all her savvy and strange new talent to keep someone from burying her—and the truth.

Read from the Book

Cave Creek, Arizona At first, the chill was a drowsy nibble at the distant and ragged edges of my awareness, raising goose-bumps on the parts of my flesh bared to that spring night. The sensation was vaguely disturbing, but not troublesome enough to stir me from the fitful shallows of sleep. I remember rolling onto my side, pulling the comforter up to my right earlobe and murmuring some insensible protest. That was when I heard Nick's voice. Or thought I heard it. Impossible, I told myself, nestling groggily into my polyester burrow. He's dead. Just then, a hand came to rest on my hip, and the chill sprouted teeth and bit right through cotton nightshirt, skin and tissue to seize the marrow of my bones. I choked out a hoarse cry, too raw and guttural to qualify as a scream, and shimmied off the mattress to land hard on both feet. In the space of an instant, my senses shifted from dial-up to broadband, and I pressed one hand to my chest, in case my heart tried to flail its way out of my chest. My brains pulsed, Cuisinart-style, then scrambled. I couldn't seem to drag a breath past my esophagus, though my lungs clawed for air like a pair of miners trapped beneath tons of rubble. I felt that way once on a stair-climber at the gym after sucking in a pack and a half of nicotine in a bar the night before, and subsequently swore off exercise forever. Hell, somebody has to serve as the bad example. But I digress. Get used to it. My eyes must have bugged out, cartoonlike. N

Editorial Reviews

"Miller''s third Stone Creek novel gets as hot as the noontime desert. Miller''s portrayal of Sarah as a strong, independent woman sets this novel apart from customary tales of the damsel in distress and the rescuing hero...Well-developed, personable characters and a handful of loose ends will leave readers anticipating future installments." --Publishers Weekly on The Rustler
