Jud Hess has loved Derek Gentry since they were children. When they became lovers in college, he thought they were destined to be together forever. All that changed with Derek’s tragic death only four years later, on Christmas Day.
Now, more than a decade after that horrible event, Jud clings to a promise he made the night before Derek died. He vowed that he would never, ever, be with another man. And he’s clung to that vow with every bit of what’s left of his heart.
But Derek’s death brought an unlikely gift. After his lover died, Jud began to see spirits. And although ghosts have become his constant companions, the one spirit he longs to see only appears to him at Christmas. Or at least, he used to.
This year, Derek doesn’t come. But someone else does; a man who brings with him the kind of erotic temptation and a need of his own that Jud is helpless to resist.
To end a decade of loneliness, Jud will have to give in to the sultry seduction of a stranger… and betray the spirit of the man who should have been the love of his life.
Jud made a promise to his lover that he would never take another man to his bed or into is heart. That is a promise he has held onto even though Derek was killed years ago. Every year on Christmas day Derek's spirit comes to Jud for a night of passion, but this year is different.
Ty has been dealing with an unruly ghost in his apartment from the day he moved in. But things have gotten worse. Now every time he touches an object in the apartment he is stricken with a near orgasmic burst of energy.
Ty turns to Jud to find the answers to this odd dilemma and they soon find that there is more here than meets the eye.
Hunter Raines has created an interesting and unique story in Silver Bells. The characters are well developed and though the story is only 82 pages long the storyline is fully developed and very creative. I felt for Jud’s problems and his desire to hold on to his love even after death and the added twist of Ty and his ghost were great.
