Another Sunday and another Sexy Snippets!

The idea is to post just seven sentences to capture the imagination. Today, I'm offering another small sampling from an unusual Victorian ghost story. Written in homage to Agatha Christie, Dreamscape is a haunting, a murder, a thriller, a mystery, and a love story that transcends time. Above all, this sensual tale is a reader's Easter egg hunt in the truest sense. Not everything is as it appears. Peppered throughout are little clues suggesting a story running behind the scenes. Finding them isn't necessary to the telling of the tale, just one of the fun twists I like to insert into my writing. Can you find them all before the story ends? But more importantly, can a ghost find love among the living? 
Setting the stage:

Lanie spends her first night in her newly purchased "haunted" Victorian house. The local rumors are true.

My seven: 

The curtains waved wildly as the wind picked up. Lanie closed the window all the way then appeared to have a second thought and left it open a little. Thunder in the distance declared there was a storm coming. Pulling off her shirt, she turned out the bedside lamp and slid naked between the sheets. Again she spoke to the quiet house, “Well, I’ll find out if the roof of my haunted house leaks, won’t I?”

Jason smiled. To his knowledge the roof didn’t leak, but the house was haunted.

"Rose Anderson weaves a masterfully crafted story richly lavish in lush description, interesting cast of characters, red herrings and spicy love scenes."
