Hi there! Today I’m reviewing an erotic supernatural romance from Ellen March. A GHOST OF AN AFFAIR is a sexy tale of a browbeaten, sexually-frustrated receptionist who finds love, not with her “Prince Charming” Doctor Boyfriend, but with the sexually voracious ghost she summons by mistake.
About the book:
Grace McGillis is over the moon to have won the love, or at least the favor, of Dr. Sage Gerret, the resident heartthrob at the hospital where she is a receptionist. Sage hopes to “improve” her: to inspire her to eat and drink less and educate herself about fine art and music. Everyone sees Sage as a great catch. Why else would Grace put up with his barbs about her appearance and his uninspired lovemaking?
Enter Breece, an adoring alpha male who is out-of-this-world in bed. That is not surprising, for he is, after all, a ghost. Though Sage may not be anyone’s dream date, he is alive. Grace is falling in love with Breece, but is love enough? Even if fate allows her ghost lover to continue his delightful haunting, how will this couple find love everlasting?
Well! I wasn’t sure what to think about this one from the blurb. I mean, how does a ghost woo a woman? I was delightedly surprised!
Okay, from the start we learn how worthless Sage is as a boyfriend. He has all the looks and all the money, and he’s a manipulative SOB intent on “moulding” (“molding” for the US readers) Grace into the woman he could imagine marrying. See, she’s curvy, with long auburn hair, and has little education. Sage likes how biddable Grace is however, so he’s eager to re-make her into a waifish gal with a pixie haircut and a knowlegde of culture. Yeah. Class a Jerk-off, IMHO.
Still, Grace stays with him, because, well, she doesn’t have anyone else. Her family’s all gone and Sage is a beautiful, successful doctor. He’s a great catch, and he doesn’t stray–even if he is WHOLLY awful in bed. Grace has had eight months of once-weekly, planned and scheduled, unsatisfying smexytimes.
A bit down on herself and her life, Grace opens a few bottles of wine and invites her BFF Amy over for a gal’s night. Amy brings along a Ouija board and they play a game–summoning the spirit named Breece. Drunk and silly, Grace challenges “Breece” to show himself. And, he does.
Breece had been killed by a hit-and-run accident while jogging. He has no idea how, or why, he’s been summoned into Grace’s life, but he’s not sad that she’s a voluptuous woman. At first he’s only a tactile spirit, meaning he can touch and be felt, so he takes a bit of advantage of the drunken Grace. She thinks she’s having a fantastic sex dream of imagined Roman warrior Breece, meanwhile ghostly Breece is shagging her six ways from Sunday.
She learns this the second time–when he takes her in the shower, with a most unSagelike passion. Sage, for his part, thinks Grace is bonkers, and a sex fiend, and arranges her to have a psychiatric evaluation.
Breece is insatiable, and Grace is sex-starved, so they make a great pair, excepting Breece’s undead state. Grace wants to keep up the front with Sage, if only to not be “alone” but Breece’s attachment is growing steadily stronger–and turning Grace’s heart into a pretzel. It doesn’t help how caustic Sage is.
I spent a lot of time loving Breece, liking Grace and hating Sage, which was, I’m sure, by design. This triad isn’t meant to be a triangle, however, and Grace FINALLY makes the right choice, only to have more heartache. The end was expected, but not less satisfying. I think readers will cheer on the reunited lovers, and the fun twist at the end really made me smile.
Lots and lots of fun smexytimes, some barely adequate sexual relations, and one horse’s pa-toot of a boyfriend made this one memorable.

About the Author:
Hello and welcome to my corner of the world 🙂
I live on top of a mountain in Wales ideal in the summer not so in the winter months or when it rains, which is a lot in Wales!
My three children have left home, however my life is still manic. I live with my husband he sadly won’t leave home but I live in hope (joke). I have one suicidal cat that really does have nine lives. I have five Alaskan Malamutes. They own me literally as I never go anywhere without taking their hair with me, they insist! My hobbies are showing and working them.
My first love though is writing, it’s a total escape for me my selfish time 🙂 Writing my books takes me from the mundane chores of work into another universe. Since a child I devoured any written word and enjoy acting out my fantasies in print.
My ambition is to pack in my nine to five job and become a full time writer. Another one of my many dreams. I have stockpiled work of various genres, including my first love erotic romance, followed by psychological thrillers and supernatural so be prepared I am making my mark on the world of literature.
