CRM: Wild West Hauntings is the second book in the Double D Ranch Tales saga. The first book is Wild West Weekend. We’re currently writing book three and have four and five in outline and note stages. The blurb for Wild West Hauntings is: In life and the afterlife, on the Double D Ranch one belief holds true—the power of love changes lives.
With cowboys, ghosts, modern day women, hot dreams, pre-wedding relations and a bit of sexy time travel, life promises to be one wild time on the ranch again.
Rachel Star has met the man of her dreams … literally. Too bad he’s a ghost. When true love crosses boundaries from dreams to reality and across time, the Double D ranch is the place it happens. It takes the love of a man from the past, Dalton Dougan, to bring love full circle in the present for Rachel.
Bristol Ashcombe, soon to be Dougan, is ready to have her baby … and so is a poltergeist. Can the love of a woman for her man and child sustain her during the most horrible of terrors? Can the love between family and friends really dispel the evil haunting them?

We had a blast writing this story, and it’s also an Editor’s Pick at Evernight Publishing.
AR: Who is your heroine and what are some of the conflicts she faces?
CRM: Rachel is one of the main heroines in Wild West Hauntings. Turns out she’s having some very realistic dreams that involve a man, and she’s fallen in love with him. She also finds out that he once was alive…back in the 1800’s. Talk about a long distance relationship!
AR: Who is the hero and what conflicts does he face?
CRM: Dalton is one of the main heroes in Wild West Hauntings. He’s thinking his wife is acting a bit strange now and then and then realizes he’s dead and his wife isn’t really his wife.
AR: Where did you get the idea for this story or series? Who or what was your inspiration?
CRM: It all started with a trip I went on where I stayed on a working ranch. There were ranchers/cowboys who actually wore the hats and chaps, horses, trail rides, campfires, cattle, and food cooked outside. My muse started asking, "What if?" When I returned home with a handful of ideas, I went to RM and said, "Guess what we're going to write about." She was a bit worried about pulling it off not having been there herself, but I had taken a lot of pictures and then we placed ‘our ranch’ in the area we live in. A few tweaks here and there and the Double D was born. As for the rest of the ideas for all our stories, they came about from a lot of brainstorming.
AR: As a reader, what kind of books do you like to read?
CRM: I read all sorts of books. In my TBR pile I have a mix of romance, horror, classics and some non-fictions right now. I might even have a couple of suspense books in there too.

An excerpt from Wild West Hauntings
Rachel snuggled deep within the confines of the down comforter, relaxed and content for the first time in months. Relieved to no longer have to cram for exams, write research papers or defend her thesis, she sighed, then closed her eyes. The travel time from Newark to Las Vegas, Nevada had been longer than expected due to storms, winding her nerves tighter than they already were. It was nice to finally settle down, stop moving and cease thinking. Within a few minutes, she drifted into a familiar dream world.
Subtle fragrances of leather and sandalwood filled the air. His memorable scent encompassed her. An eternity without him, or what seemed to be that long, ended as her dream lover drew near. A serene smile played at the corners of her lips. Dalton, it’s been awhile, she purred in her mind.
Behind her, the bed and covers shifted. He settled his body against her. Restless throbs of desire pulsed through her as she molded against him, wanting to be as close to him as possible. He nibbled on her earlobe and snaked his strong arms around her. Warm breath wisped over the side of her face.
“My star. My lovely wife. How good it is to have you in my arms.” Lips brushed her jaw just below her ear, sending tingles down her side and arm.
A quick burst of panic shot through her. This seems to be more than a lucid dream. Rachel reached behind her, with a cautious sweep of her arm and hand, hoping to find empty space.
