Get Lost in Morgan Hannah MacDonald's Spirits Among Us


A serial killer loose in Paris, a woman threatened by a mad man and an ex-FBI agent with a haunting secret. 

After she's black listed by the fashion industry in New York, Angela Henderson moves to Paris, France. Designing clothes is in her blood and she'll stop at nothing to realize her dream. 


Cajun bad boy, Jon-Luc Boudreaux is an ex-FBI profiler with a secret. He sees the souls of the recently departed. They can't communicate with him in words. Instead, they point to clues he must decipher on his own. That's how he's achieved the highest rate of solved cases in FBI history. A fact that did not win favor among his superiors or fellow colleagues. So, after years of enduring questions, rumors and innuendo, Jon-Luc has left the FBI. 


In an effort to determine his next course of action, Jon-Luc heads to Paris to visit an old friend. The moment he arrives, he's asked to assist with a case. It’s fashion week and the bodies of mutilated models are being discovered all over the city. 


Now Jon-Luc is on the hunt for the most diabolical killer he's ever encountered and Angie's next on the killer's list. 


       Jon-Luc Boudreaux stared at the woman standing before him. Some might call her beautiful, if you liked your women emaciated, which he did not. The naked woman's clavicles, ribs and hip bones protruded. He preferred his women with curves. Her sleek, jet black hair cascaded over her shoulder, hiding one breast. 
      He had to admit, her deep green eyes and high cheekbones were a lethal combination. This exotic looking creature had long gashes running down each arm. Blood oozed from the wounds dripping down her hands, landing on the floor. 
      The puddles spread wider as each drop splashed up as if in slow motion. By Jon-Luc’s calculations, half her blood pooled at her feet. She stared at him, her expression grim. His eyes locked on hers as tears of blood began dripping from her eyes.
      Ruby lips parted as if to speak. “Monsieur. Monsieur.”
      Her lips hadn’t moved with the words.
      Jon-Luc blinked and the vision disappeared.
     “Please, monsieur!” 
      When his eyes focused, he found himself being manhandled by a distressed looking airline stewardess.
       “Huh? What?” He blinked again, then remembered where he was. 
       “We are here, in Paris. The plane is disembarking. You go now, oui?” The moment his eyes met hers, the pretty blonde's face relaxed and she smiled.
       Jon-Luc searched the cabin and noticed he was the only one left in first class. A few passengers still filed out the door of the plane.
       “Oui, merci.” Jon-Luc stood, opened the overhead compartment, then grabbed his laptop and carry-on. The pretty blonde walked him to the door, still smiling. She had the greatest dimples. 
       “You will ring me for supper, oui?” Her cute little eyebrows raised.
       “Oui.” Jon-Luc patted the pocket where he'd stashed her phone number, then glanced at her nametag. “Oui, Jeanette. I will definitely ring you.” With that he was out the door.

  1. Good morning Morgan! I'm so glad you joined us here on GLIAS. I have to admit, I read fewer romantic suspense stories than straight up contemporary romance, but lately I've heard so many amazing premises I might just be on my way to shifting that balance! Your book sounds wonderful. I'm really bad at "favorite" questions because usually my favorites are whatever I've read most recently. I'm currently reading Lena Diaz's "Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead." Her heroes are always fabulous! Thanks again for sharing your book with us.

    1. Thank you so much for having me, Lizbeth, it's great to be here!
      I'm really looking forward to connecting with your readers. I'm truly sorry I was little late showing up. I got lost in a story myself. I've been in my writers cave working on my next book, NIGHTSCREAM. The follow up book to SANDMAN.

  2. Good Morning, Morgan and welcome to GLIAS.
    My favorite hero is the one I'm currently reading...if it isn't, there's a problem with the hero. >>grin<<

  3. Hi Morgan, and congrats on your book. I've not read either of your previous books so don't have a favorite hero from them. You are a new author for me, as I usually read more suspense instead of horror suspense...but your description and excerpt sounds real interesting. and have tempted me to give it a try. Thanks for sharing with us. grandmabkr at yahoo dot com

    1. Hi Brenda, and thank you. The only book I have that could be considered horror is Spirits in the Trees because it's a ghost story. Spirits Among Us is more of a crime fiction with a paranormal twist since the investigator is a psychic medium. And SANDMAN is more a straight up crime fiction. And all have a romance, of course.

  4. Hi, Morgan! Welcome to Get Lost in a Story. The first book you remember reading was Carrie? How old were you? :) That was one terrifying book must saying, and now I have to read your work ;) Sorry to say I haven't had the pleasure, but will work to remedy my omission. I have to agree with Lizbeth. Lena Diaz writes wonderful protags. I also like Roake in JD Robb series. and....Jillian Stone writes some sexy, wicked heroes, oh gosh, way to put your foot in it, Donnell ;) Again, welcome!

    1. Hi Donnell, I read Carrie in high school. Can't remember how old I was. And I must agree with you, I'm also a fan of Jillian Stone. I'm so glad to hear I might have a new reader! I am told my books are scary. I myself love suspense. I love to be kept on the edge of my seat. That's something I strive for in my stories.

  5. I really want to thank you ladies for the warm welcome and for inviting me to be here today.

  6. Congrats, Donnell, you're the winner of the ebook! email me at and let me know which format you prefer.
    Thank you all for entering. And thank you ladies for having here at your wonderful blog.
    Take care,
