 While discovering a new story about werewolves or vampires always makes me a happy reader, finding an innovative paranormal story featuring a ghost is equally gratifying. The most recent Nocturne story by the gifted Alexis Morgan is particularly original in numerous ways, where the supernatural aspects are cleverly depicted and the romance is enchantingly believable. IMMORTAL COWBOY has countless fascinating details and an exceedingly strong-willed couple.

Although Rayanne Allen once enjoyed visiting with her uncle and exploring a local ghost town called Blessing, a strange incident stopped her from ever going again. When he passes away, she must follow a few special stipulations to inherit his home and land. Now she will be taking a leave of absence from her teaching job at the university and will live in the remote cabin for the summer. Rayanne is excited because she loves history, yet she is also wary because of how the area changed her life. But there also might be some answers as to what has caused her to repeatedly dream about an old-west gunslinger.

After arriving at the cabin, Rayanne begins fulfilling the wishes of her uncle. All seems to be going as it should until a bizarre event happens, leaving her with even more questions. Wyatt McCain has been confined to the area for many years because a past deed will not let him be eternally content. Being able to truly communicate with the man she once saw may bring Rayanne some much needed answers, but soon just talking with him is not enough.

There are not nearly enough books written about the mysterious appearance of ghosts, and IMMORTAL COWBOY satisfied my craving for this genre. Alexis Morgan has constructed a very sound reason for the hero of the story to not be at rest. Yet not every fact is known about what causes his current circumstances, and I think this confusion adds to the mystic about the manifestation of someone long dead, especially those who are aware of their surroundings. These unknowns left me speculating about what would ultimately happen by the conclusion of the book, and several starling surprises do take place. A ghost town is the perfect setting for all the occurrences to happen, and the history discovered about the locale makes the story even more interesting. The western part of America has a really colorful past, and Ms. Morgan takes some facts of life back then and interweaves them with a paranormal romance to create a noteworthy novel.

The two main characters seem very different from each other, yet an apparent connection was made when their paths crossed on that long ago day. The uncle of Rayanne may have first triggered her love for the American West, but it was her fateful encounter with Wyatt that filled her teenage dreams with realistic scenarios and she has never been able to forget him. Her response to coming in contact with him when she is an adult is totally unlike her previous reaction, as she feels compellingly drawn to the sexy gunslinger. When they realize each has similar feelings for the other, regardless of how they can actually interact, the atmosphere between them is packed with lots of sexual tension. I ached for this couple when all seemed hopeless, and rejoiced over even a small glimmer of optimism. IMMORTAL COWBOY is an imaginative ghost story with endless possibilities.
