Can love survive the perils of MacGregor House?
The Supernatural Explorers are back and looking for their next big paranormal case. They might’ve found it in a plea from Payne, a mild-mannered librarian who has inherited the family mansion—MacGregor House. Since moving in a few months ago, Payne’s exhausted the list of ghost hunters and experts in his quest for help. The Supers are his last chance.
So why does normally good-natured cameraman Will take an instant dislike to Payne? For that matter, why has he felt irritable and angry since they arrived at the site? It soon becomes clear that the answers they seek will be found in the basement—where nobody has gone since Payne was a little boy. As the haunting grows deadlier, things get sweeter between Will and Payne, but all hell’s about to break loose when they breach the basement door.

4 Stars!

The Supernatural Explorers have been striking out on hauntings since their experience at the hospital in the first book, The Supers. They are still trying to get a television show and need another real haunting to make things work. They get hired by a man who needs help. Payne is a librarian and researcher, who inherited a house that he's been renovating. Unfortunately, the crazy things happening in the house are making it hard for him to live there. He's hoping that these ghost hunters can do something about the phenomena that he's been living with.

Will is the cameraman of the team. Normally, he's easygoing about most things. However, something about Payne rubs him wrong when they meet and he is a complete jerk. So much so that the rest of the team wonders what is going on with him. Payne doesn't know why one of the crew is being so hard on him and is wondering if he made a mistake hiring them. A haunted house, a ghost hunting team, and two guys who normally would be highly attracted to each other, what could go wrong?

The creepiness of the house and the way that Payne is clearly being influenced by an entity was really good. I found it interesting how much Will was influenced as well. When a ghost locks them into a room together, they really did a good job of burying their initial interactions and got to know each other. The romance is fast moving, happening within a few days due to the intense situation. In some ways, the romance takes a backseat to the investigation of the house and its ghost problem. I found Payne to be much braver than I would have been considering everything. I think that he and Will have a foundation that they can build on and hope to see them in a future book in this series.

I enjoyed this book a bit more than the first one. While this is the second book in the series, I think you could probably read this one as a standalone.
