Blurb: When a ghostly dandy and his roguish companion try their hand at matchmaking, things definitely go bump in the night.

For centuries, foppish Captain Cornelius Sheridan and brooding John Rookwood have haunted the mansion they duelled and died for. Now these phantom foes must join forces to save both their home and their feuding descendants.

But when Captain Sheridan sacrifices his afterlife for the sake of true love, will Rookwood risk everything to keep his companion by his side, or is it too late to say "I love you"?

4 Stars!

This was such a fun, quirky, hot and entertaining short story! (Ghostly) Enemies-to-Lovers with just a smidgen of MF. Both Sheridan and Rookwood were hilarious and even if they had spent the last centuries together as ghosts in the mansion where they dueled and died, they were quite oblivious to their feelings for one another. It wasn't until their descendants, Jen and Dan, came to check the house to see if they should sell it and Sheridan and Rookwood decide to play matchmakers that they finally see the light, so to speak. Definitely recommendable!
