Book Review: A Ghostly Menage by Eve Langlais

Review: A Ghostly Ménage
Author: Eve Langlais
No of Pages: 59
Release Date: 15 October 2010

Forget ghosts who rattle chains, try living with ones that like to grope.

Jenna, desperate for change, buys a repossessed home on a whim. The townsfolk claim it's haunted, but Jenna's pretty sure all it needs is some filler to stop the drafts. But before long, even she has to admit, there's more going on here than the vagaries of an old house. And whatever it is keeps making her panties damp and her dreams hot.

Derrick and Mark, werewolf twins, are stuck in their house as disembodied spirits all because of an evil witch. When their fated mate suddenly becomes the new owner, they end up taking haunting to a whole new erotic level.

Can Jenna save the alpha brothers and if she does, can she handle a forever after with not one, but two men?

My Thoughts:

A Ghostly Ménage was just another exhibit of Eve Langlais’ fantastic writing.

Jenna wants to get away. From the city, from her cheating boyfriend, and from her two “best friends” who slept with him. On a whim she buys a house in a town with a population of nine thousand and moves. Perhaps she should have checked the house out first...Bumps in the night, doors opening for her and if her pyjamas aren’t thick enough to keep spectral hands from exploring she wakes up with a need only a man should be able to fulfil.

Jenna convinces herself that she is imagining things; her beautiful old house has some creaks and drafts. She reads too much and her wishful thinking is starting to get the better of her. But when she puts the physical occurrences out of her mind, the dreams start. Hot men ravishing her, taking her to heights she had never felt before. After waking up extremely hot and bothered more than a few times, Jenna starts to wish that she hadn’t sworn herself off men forever.

A Ghostly Ménage wasn’t just about the extremely hot sex though – and boy was it hot – it was also quite a fun detective story. The suspense Langlais created as Jenna was on the verge of finding out who her ghostly lovers are was very well done as well as the feeling of dread one feels as Jenna invites the proverbial wolf to dinner in the form of evil witch Clarissa.

With the element of an awesome story on top of really hot sex Langlais still managed to fit in some superb characters. Jenna was an intelligent female lead, reacting realistically to each odd situation she was put into by her “housemates”, and yet still keeping a sense of calm and enough common sense to realise that although it was farfetched, something was happening right in front of her that she had to acknowledge.

Derrick and Mark are two hot alpha males and two very cheeky ones as well. They also have personalities that are at times so different and at other times so similar. Both caring, both fierce and both at times kind of quiet. Being twins you can’t really tell them apart but I am going to play favourites and say that I liked Derrick’s fierce pushy nature a little more than Mark’s shier one.

A Ghostly Ménage was yet another reinforcement to me that Eve Langlais has a gift for both words and hot stories. A Ghostly Ménage was a mixture of hot sex, multi-dimensional characters an extremely interesting plot.
