Description: A naked ghost? Julie was Maggie's mentor and has been her best friend for as long as she can remember. Paige Blackmoor didn't picture a naked ghost on the scene of her new job at Rosebury Manor. As the rain pours and the thunder rocks the night sky, she wonders if she's made the right choice in applying for the position of a maid in a gloomy mansion of which she's never heard. The jovial housekeeper warns her of a handsome ghost walking the premises, but Paige tells herself that her story could only be a flight of fancy. In the dead of night, however, the ghost comes to pay her a visit, and leaves behind an aura of mystery and sex. Will Paige's first night on the job in the forbidding manor be her last?

The manor house's outlines were eerie in the overpowering darkness as Paige Blackmoor pulled the car to a stop at the front entrance. A bolt of lightning illuminated the manor's high roof for a brief second before pitch dark descended again. Thunder cracked through the air. Apart from the rain, there were no other sounds. She had a sense of deja vu that warned her she had been here before, but to her recollection, she had never been in the area. The impression stayed with her, frightening her more than the day's happenings had.
She gritted her teeth and decided to leave the headlights on. Those comforting orbs of yellow light kept her from turning the car around and racing down the unfamiliar, winding road. She needed this job, and although the circumstances appeared strange, Paige felt reassured that good things did happen to those who waited long enough. It wasn't every day a woman got a job in a ritzy place--even if it was only maid's work.
She bent her head over the steering wheel and looked at the manor, able to discern only a dim outline. Earlier that morning as she'd sipped her black coffee and read the classified section in the newspaper, her gaze had landed on the perfect employment.
Maid wanted at Rosebury Manor
Excellent salary, benefits and room and board
Only serious woman need apply
The misuse of 'woman' rather than 'women' had immediately caught her attention but she attributed the mistake to a copyeditor being asleep on the job.
Paige had almost spilled her coffee into her lap as she'd pushed back the chair from the kitchen table and ran for the phone. The job had sounded so perfect, she couldn't have let someone apply ahead of her. With shaking fingers, she'd dialled the number and asked for the person named in the ad. The person had asked what her name was and had said, with a great deal of repressed excitement Paige couldn't fail to hear, that the job was hers as long as she arrived at Rosebury before eight p.m. that day.
It had meant a bustle of activity, but she'd managed to get everything cleared with the apartment manager from whom she rented her small bachelorette. Now she was here, irrationally afraid of the surrounding night and what might be waiting for her. After she had made the call to Rosebury and returned to the newspaper and her coffee, she had searched and searched for the ad, but was unable to find it again. Any number of reasons why she hadn't been able to came to mind, but the most prominent one was that the ad had simply vanished. The whole day had been filled with apprehension as she'd remembered the ad's misspelling, the manner in which she had been hired on the spot and not even asked for a resume, and how the ad had disappeared as if into thin air.
Now that she was actually parked next to the manor, her instinct to flee fought with her good sense, which was telling her she was imagining this whole scenario.
