I’m not sure if this one is a romantic fantasy, or a paranormal romance, or… What do you think?
Claudia lives a vagabond life, crisscrossing the country doing research for a reality show about American myths and legends. Christmas finds her in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, at a small hotel allegedly haunted by the Lady in White, who leaves a candle burning for her husband, lost in the snow. The ghost might not be real, but Claudia’s attraction to the mysterious Reese, who once lived in the Victorian house, definitely is. Will he be what it takes for Claudia to change her wandering ways?
“Leave a Candle Burning” originally appeared in Fantasy Adrift (Fiction River, 2014).
