Author Bio:
National bestselling author, Heather Long, likes long walks in the park, science fiction, superheroes,
Marines, and men who aren’t douche bags. Her books are filled with heroes and heroines tangled in romance as hot as Texas summertime. From paranormal historical westerns to contemporary military romance, Heather might switch genres, but one thing is true in all of her stories—her characters drive the books. When she’s not wrangling her menagerie of animals, she devotes her time to family and friends she considers family. She believes if you like your heroes so real you could lick the grit off their chest, and your heroines so likable, you’re sure you’ve been friends with women just like them, you’ll enjoy her worlds as much as she does.

Eight of Heather’s Favorite Haunt Me Quotes

Thank you so much to Curling Up By the Fire for letting me drop in! Occasionally, as an author, I crack myself up when I’m writing. Maybe I shouldn’t confess that, but—really, it’s true. I love to laugh and I fully believe that laughing through tears is the best emotion, but a good ol’ chuckle is worth having, too. So when I make myself laugh when writing, I try to remember those moments. Haunt Me was no exception. If you don’t mind indulging me, I thought I’d share eight of my favorite quotes…at least three of these had me snicker-giggle-snorting when I typed them.

·        “No. Ghosts aren’t real. The curse isn’t real. It’s all a bunch of folk tales and campfire stories. We’re already contributing to the madness enough with the ‘haunted’ town idea.”
·        “I’m sorry, was I being rude to the man who dropped in uninvited for the second time in a week?”
·        “And if it’s a ghost?” “Which it isn’t, but if it is, I promise to scream like a little girl and you can make fun of me for the rest of my life.”
·         “Bugs?” She shuddered. “Ugh. I’ll get it taken care of—I can call someone.” 
“Who? Ghostbusters? Last I checked, that was a movie.”
·        Although now he had to ask himself...was he really after the house, or the woman?
·         Jocelyn Kent, it seemed, was only the first scoop of the crazy sundae.
·        His deep blue cotton T-shirt set off his eyes. Dark jeans, frayed around the knees, hugged his thighs and hung low over work boots. A knight in blue denim.
·        He sucked in a breath. Everything about her was vibrant, alive, and passionate. God, she would be great in bed.
·         “Friendly,” she murmured. “Remember that. It’s a friendly family ghost.”
