We can’t wait to share the fourth book in our Triskaidekaphilia series, Haunted.

Because we’re so excited, we’re going to give you a sneak peek at the stories as we countdown the days until the September 13th release.

Today we start with a teaser from She Laughed by Rhonda Parrish.

 


She Laughed

by Rhonda Parrish

 

because tears
because screams
would have been blood in the water
and the sharks were circling close

she laughed

though fear ripped at her throat
and Their ragged fingernails
tore at her jeans
her skin

she laughed

and They laughed too
—the pair doing the tugging
the pulling—
They laughed
along with those surrounding her
circling her…

row upon row of serrated teeth smiles
laughing
leering…

she heard the
click
click
click
of every tooth on her zipper
as it betrayed her…

Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned

Not all ghost stories are simple sightings and things going bump in the night. Not all ghosts are left behind because of simple unfinished business. No, sometimes that unfinished business is messy, complicated, and even deadly.

These are not your typical ghost stories—they are desire, love, and most importantly, revenge—all rolled into one. Revenge for a love stolen away, a love that never was, a retribution for a horrific act, or even an act of war.
