Sometimes, the business of death can be very messy.Sebastian's latest job requires him to stay in the Crosse Funeral Home for a while. That's fine with him, the sin eating keeps him busy and the funeral director provides a good distraction from his connection to Alyce. But when a phantom starts haunting his nights, he starts to wonder if maybe he hasn't gotten himself in too deep.
Abe is a funeral director, but her connection with the dead goes much deeper. Now that she has a new sin eater working with her, she can start planning the ritual that will seal her fate.
Yet, when one thing goes wrong, and is closely followed by another, she soon finds herself the pawn in a game she didn't even know had been going on within the walls of her home...
A cool sensation brushed against Sebastian’s lips. He flicked it away with the back of his hand. He didn’t want to wake up yet, not when he was dreaming of a sexy blonde girl and the night of passion that still haunted him.
“Sebastian.” His name, spoken against his mouth, made him stir. The dream flickered from his mind just when things were heating up. Still, he didn’t want to let go and pressed his eyes shut, trying to hold on. It wasn’t until the cool touch travelled away from his mouth, down his torso, and paused at his crotch that he sat upright.
"Goddammit!" He punched the mattress with both fists and looked around the dark room. For a second he forgot where he was. Such was the life of a vagabond, the type of man who woke up in different beds almost every night–sometimes alone, others with company. Tonight, he lay alone on the plush and comfortable bed. Wanting nothing more than to get back to the dream he’d been enjoying.
Even it’s the worst possible thing for you to do right now.
