The Holiday Spirit

Book 1 of the Haunted Holiday Series


Shopping for Christmas, author Kerri Tollbrook is more annoyed than startled when a ghost tells her a gift she's about to buy will end up in the nearest donation bin. He's right, and well... gorgeous with those haunted brown eyes and self-assured bearing. Unlike most men, he's not afraid of her unusual gift. And the connection she feels surprises her. But even she can't date a dead man.


Firefighter Galen McAllister is stunned the petite redhead can see and hear him. It feels almost normal to talk to another human again, but if things were truly normal, he'd alread be asking her out. The woman is a triple threat – smart, funny, pretty, even if she's insisting he needs to "cross over". He can't, not after an ancient evil ripped him away from his body. And he refuses to leave as long as the creature is free to do the same to others.


There's no time to kiss under the mistletoe. The demon with a taste for human life force is coming back for a final feast. Helping ghosts is one thing, but Kerri is determined to banish the monster by any means necessary, even if Galen only wants enough "answers" to help him take the demon down himself.

She can't let Galen die for real. He can't bear to put Kerri in the creature's path. But if they don't work together on this, they aren't the only ones who will die just in time for Christmas.


JUST LOVE MY BOOKS - 5 STARS - "...Not only is Christmastime my favorite time of the year for the obvious reasons, but also because I love reading heartwarming stories written with a Christmas theme. So far I have already read several and "The Holiday Spirit" is my favorite. It's not a typical romance. There is suspense and some darkness that I don't usually like to read about in a Christmas romance. However this one was amazing and my first five star rated in this genre. Wow, Dani Harper had to have done some intense researching to make this story so realistic given it is a paranormal. "The Holiday Spirit" is one of my top ten holiday romances ever."
NIGHT OWL REVIEWS - 4.25 STARS - "...The Holiday Spirit tells the story of Kerri Tollbrook, a woman who can communicate with ghosts but is startled to discover that firefighter Galen McAllister is not her typical 'client'. He finds a way to touch her body and heart and she gives him a reason to fight for a way for them to truly celebrate Christmas with each other. Together, they search for a way to defeat an inimical being known as Nah'mindhe, but even the support of a knowledgeable aunt, a crusty ghost, a feisty pug, and a nurse with connections to the occult may not be enough."
REDZ WORLD REVIEWS - 5 stars - "... I liked the twists and turns of this story. I never really knew what would happen next. I also loved the humor. I love romances that can blend chemistry with the characters and a great sense of humor, and this one does that. Even if you are not into holiday stories I think this is a great little read to pick up. It has action, adventure, and a whole lot of love inside."
