Cross My Heart Final Audio Cover.jpg

Alexandra Dark lives a commitment-free life.  In pursuit of lost treasure, she travels the world as an archaeologist, and it's her policy to never put down roots--and to never linger for long in any woman's bed.

But when her sister convinces her to flip a rundown house in Niagara Falls, Alex finds herself caught in the middle of a mystery, and she's too curious to leave town before the case is solved.

With sexy librarian--and amateur ghost hunter--Trudy Strange by her side, Alex attempts to unravel the clues hidden in the hundred-year-old house, and to restructure her long-held beliefs about life, love, and everything after.

In their quest to reveal the secrets haunting the old Victorian, Alex and Trudy uncover a long-buried romance--and succumb, mind, body and soul, to the intense feelings that they have for each other.  But will their new-found trust be strong enough to protect them from the dark force lurking, lying in wait?

CROSS MY HEART is a sexy, funny, romantic romp, a tribute to the healing power of love. 

What Reviewers Say


5 Stars - "Review also appears on my blog,  Alex Dark, archaeologist and wanderer, thinks picking up a creepy Victorian mansion in Niagara Falls is just a charming side venture--pick it up for a dollar, flip it, and head off to the next dig. Who could have predicted she would find a decades-old mystery, vengeful spirits, and a sexy high femme librarian and ghost hunter to help her solve both?

Cross My Heart is hella charming and rather steamy, with Trudy Strange, rockabilly in Halloween dresses and a hot-pink Ghostbusting jumpsuit the perfect love interest for a paranormal romance. Alex, expecting to stay a mere two weeks, meets strange townspeople, a classy medium, and discovers the latent psychic ability of her own adorable nephew--while doing her best to reunite the spirits of the house's previous mistress and her lover. Deliciously creepy, sexy, and romantic by turns, this is everything I wanted in a dark and stormy night read. Natalie, I'd love to see them get a series!"


5 Stars - "Ghosts, fate, anxiety, tension, humor, forbidden love, true love and combine this and you got a breathtaking story. This story had me at the edge of my seat, a real page turner. There were 3 scenes that I particularly loved. These were the seance, the scene at the pond and the scene in the bathroom. I have enjoyed it immensely and I highly recommend this book."
