Sabine inherits a Manor. Nothing spectacular. Oh no, its a wreck well on it’s way to being a ruin. But for Sabine, it comes when her life is falling down around her ears. When those closest to her betray her. When blood is proved most definitely not thicker than water. It gives her a hiding place from the world, a place to lick her wounds, a place to heal and a big distraction from the hot mess her life is. Only someone doesn’t want her there and he’s making no bones about it.
Lord Daniel Harrington, mysteriously murdered in 1715 has chased off everyone who sought to inherit his beloved Manor. He doesn’t remember his death, all he knows is one minute he’s alive and contemplating that sneaky kiss. The next, he’s floating through walls and rather annoyed at the interlopers who invade his home. Now he’s met a woman who won’t be chased away. Whose pain is bigger than her fear of him.
They come together in a clash of personalities, war is declared. But there are several someone’s who don’t want either of them there. Maybe it’s time to redraw the battle lines and focus on an enemy to them both. What’s the saying? An enemy of my enemy is my friend?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always loved ghosts and wondered what would happen if a ghost several hundred years old fell in love with a woman living today. Now we know… Daniel and Sabine's story in Oakwood Manor!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Sabine and Daniel both came naturally, their antics had to be funny. A few of their tricks are based on real-life events but I won't tell you which!
She heard him enter the shower and turn on the water. Sabine crawled out from her hiding spot once she was positive Daniel was occupied. She quickly glanced at the bathroom door and dashed for the door.
Unfortunately, Sabine wasn’t fast enough, and an enraged roar came from the bathroom. Sabine spun around as a giant-sized, well-formed Papa Smurf came barrelling out of the room and straight at her. Sabine’s mouth dropped open in shock at just how well payback had worked. Daniel had shampooed his hair and then washed his body. Clearly, he’d scrubbed vigorously.
Sabine choked back a giggle at the look on Daniel’s face. He’d wrapped a towel around his waist, saving Sabine from openly ogling his male parts. Daniel was blue from head to toe. Completely blue everywhere from what was viewable. A giggle escaped her as Daniel looked at his body incredulously. He returned his stare to her, horror and disbelief etched on his handsome face. Sabine crumpled against the door in hysterical laughter. Daniel’s disbelief was too much for her to handle.
Hiccupping and crying, Sabine kept laughing as Daniel continued to stare at her and then his body in horror. Daniel tried wiping the blue off with another towel, and it refused to budge. He disappeared and reappeared still blue. Daniel’s face showed disbelief again as he repeated those actions several times. Well, blue dye worked on a ghost, who’d have thought it! Daniel turned transparent, and Sabine cried even harder as he remained a blue outline.
Daniel’s eyes narrowed in on Sabine as she continued crying and hiccupping with laughter. Sabine was sat on the floor, bent at the waist and clutching her ribs. Daniel winked out again, for longer this time and reappeared blue. Sabine let out another shriek and wiped her eyes.
“What the blazes did you do?” Daniel finally asked
“Oh my god, it’s Papa Smurf.” Sabine cried, laughing her ass off.
