When a man-mountain of a guy walks into a café and asks for you by name, you sit up and take notice. Cassie is instantly attracted to Damien Mathers, who is also a World Super Bike Champion. He wants her help to banish a ghost. However, Cassie explains she is a clairvoyant, not an exorcist. Damien though, is very persuasive!
The Haunting takes Cassie on a journey she won’t forget. A ghost who leaves her un-nerved and scared – not because of it, but what it unleases within her.
Damien doesn’t believe in the paranormal, until he witness something he can’t explain. He also falling in love, but how can he love her dark side?
Can Cassie hold on to Damien? Can she banish the ghosts and save her relationship?
Damien and Daniel were very much alike, and I much preferred Damien, which was just as well, really. Their look and build were so similar they could have been twins, but they weren’t.
Rachel was saying, “Every encounter I’ve had with her has been on the stairs or the landing. I even heard her name whispered. That’s why I knew it. I couldn’t believe it when you said it out loud, Cassie. Have you come across something like this before?”
The waitress arrived and took our orders. When she left, they looked at me expectantly.
“Nothing surprises me anymore. Your ghost seems intent on reliving the day she died. She was a slave brought into the country and then someone killed her.”
Rachel gasped, Daniel and Damien appeared sceptical and Damien said, “Come on, how can you possibly know that…”
“I saw someone at the top of the stairs, they moved away as I looked up.”
“They’re not real, y’know,” Damien said.
Rachel answered him. “Then how do you explain what happened?”
He shook his head. “I don’t know, it’s just bizarre.”
“It is.” I agreed.
“Well, I’m sorry,” Rachel said, emphatically. “There is no way I’m moving in with her walking up and down the stairs like that.”
Daniel huffed, his eyes gazing heavenwards with expirations. “This is going well!”
“So, what’s next?” Rachel asked, looking at me. Her large eyes blinked several times, and I think she expected me to perform a miracle.
“All I can tell you is what you already know. The house is haunted. I don’t know if I can stop it if that’s what you’re expecting.”

“Cassie came to me one night and the following morning I wrote a short story. I found myself really liking her, she was funny, sassy, and had a great relationship with her brother. Two more stories followed and I ended up with four stories which I put into a book and called in The Adventures of Cassidy Newbold.
I was then challenged to write a short story featuring a hot male and motor sport of some kind. So I decided to make it a Cassie Newbold story.”
