When he recovers, he spends a couple of years as a private investigator, only to tire of seeing the worst of human nature. So when his aunt offers him the chance to take over her rental real estate business in Cape May, it seems too good to be true. Now if he could just believe he could ever be lucky again in love.
Sparks fly when Erik and Ben meet. But when a cursed hotel’s long-ago scandals resurface, the two men are pulled into a web of lies, danger, and deception that will test their bond – and might make them Cape May’s newest ghosts!

A new adventure and new couple to add to Morgan’s awesome interconnected world!!
I love a good mystery and with a hint of magic, ghosts and other worldly gifts this story hooked me from the start!
I love the interconnected world’s, stories and characters of Morgan (& Gail’s) books and I could feel a crossover coming on!! (I sure hope so!!!) I enjoyed the friendship connection between Eric and Simon and while Eric’s story wasn’t as chaotically death defying, as it was enjoyable and intriguing all on its own! I loved Ben and Eric’s connection and spark right from the get go and felt their journey and eventual love wasn’t unbelievable and in some ways felt fated and organic like the “soulmate” title suggested. I enjoyed the mystery being unraveled and am really looking forward to seeing where Morgan will take these two next. I also totally loved the bonus cameo by a certain immortal at the very end of the book. I’m so excited for whatever is next!!!
