Title: A Haunted Heart Author: Kristi Pelton Genre: New Adult, Suspense Release Date: October 2No one chooses tragedy—it’s thrown at you at the most unexpected time. Life…love…ripped away as if it never existed in a single instant. That happened to me one Halloween night—my life was shattered and I was left an abandoned empty vessel—floating through the days and nights with hopes of feeling someday. A year later, Adam Stroud walked down the sidewalk and in a single instant life changed again. He too had been dealt a horrible hand of fate and for the first time in a year, I saw a glimpse of life. For almost two months, I allowed myself to live. Learning to love and bloom. Little did I know I’d be betrayed and lied to by the few I trusted most. And now...lying cold and naked in the dirt hole, I promised myself if given the opportunity again…I’d live.
I work part-time as a probation officer for juveniles. But I spend the majority of my time with two of the most freakishly awesome boys ever…MY two sons!
I am a huge Kansas Jayhawk fan, Oregon Duck fan and Chicago Cubs fan! I’m deliciously addicted to music…Love all kinds! Dr. Pepper is a close second in my addictions.
Life is taken way too seriously by most…I say enjoy every moment, have a drink and READ!

Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.
I tried to keep others at arm’s length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone.
If I hadn’t been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn’t have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin—refusing to let go. Making me want things I don’t deserve.
She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she’s near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I’m convinced I’ll destroy if I ever let her close.
I’m a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn’t stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.
