Sexy Ghosts Guest Blog and Giveaway with Diana Cachey

SEXY GHOSTS by Diana Cachey
You ask yourself, “What was that sound?” You turn, see no one. An eerie warmth washes over tingling skin. The body quivers, feels sensuous, aroused. What just happened? Could it be one of the TOP TEN SEXIEST GHOSTS? 
#10 Titanic ghost, Leonardo DiCaprio
An allegedly unsinkable ship, The Titanic sunk when it hit an iceberg. Leonardo DiCaprio became “King of the World” on its bow in the Best Picture. The world saw film footage of its watery grave like shoes and other personal effects of passengers, which sparked a drive to learn about its lost souls. 
He’d be higher on the list, if he weren’t just an acting ghost. Who needs the real Titanic ghosts when Leo can light Kate Winslet’s fire and ours. My Heart Will Go On, loving Leo, the man who dies yearning for passion.
#9 Flying Dutchman Sailors & Pirates
Who doesn’t love sailors? Or pirates? The Flying Dutchman, an anomaly of ships, isn’t just haunted. It IS a ghost. Originally from 17th-century nautical folklore, the legendary ghost ship never made port and its rogue sailors cruise in perpetuity. Imagine those handsome pirates, wearing their ruffled shirts, bowed shoes, long curled locks, Tricorn hats, brandishing swords and strong whiskey. Full steam ahead, Johnny Depp style.
#8, #7 Princes Edward & Richard, Some Too Young To Die  
At the Bloody Tower of London two Princes, young Edward V and Richard Duke of York, were murdered under authority of Duke of Gloucestershire.  According  legend, guards who pass the Bloody Tower spot shadows of two small figures still wearing the white night shirts they wore when they disappeared. Silently, they stand before vanishing back into the Tower stones. Poor haunted Princes, but we’ll take a Prince any day, even a ghost.
#6, Ann Boleyn
Once Queen of England, Henry the VIII’s most famous wife, mother of Tudor Queen Elizabeth was executed in the Tower of London. Pictures show she was quite the buxom bride. Her voluptuous ghost appears at the Bloody Tower and other places like Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle, where her and Henry lived during their marriage.
#5 Gettysburg soldiers 
Battlefields keep spirits from resting in peace. Trauma, terror and extreme loss of life cause wandering ghosts to appear. During the Battle of Gettysburg over 50,000 men lost their lives. Hundreds of people have experienced the Gettysburg soldier ghosts in places like Little Round Top (headless rider) and the Culp Farm (phantom footsteps). Men who filmed Gettysburg said some of the soldiers who came to the location were not actors. Maybe haunted actors?
#4 & #3 Dead Presidents, John F. Kennedy Tops Abe Lincoln
Dead presidents haunt the White House. Maybe you don’t think Abe is sexy, but JFK? He stole hearts plus married Jackie O, the most glamorous woman in the world. His tragic murder leaves him haunted and restless. Workers also claim to see Abe’s ghost sitting on a bed. While alive, Lincoln knocked when he wanted to be heard, Roosevelt and others heard the knocks when in the White House.
#2 Elvis
Elvis left the building when he died. Oh did he? People swear they still see him, including his wife Priscilla. Post-death Elvis sightings are so common trashy tabloids stopped reporting it. 
People flock to Memphis and Graceland to feel his presence. His ghost is also seen in Nashville where he recorded “Heartbreak Hotel.” A local television production company remains there now and crews claim that whenever someone mentions Elvis, paranormal activity picks up -- lights explode, ladders fall over. Elvis also appears wearing his white jump suit at the Las Vegas Hilton where he famously performed in the 1970s.
#1 Marilyn Monroe
Sexiest ghost, Marilyn Monroe, hovers over her tomb at Westwood Memorial Cemetery in LA, and haunts the house where she died. Marilyn also appears for hours in a full-length mirror, frightening guests at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Looking this sexy deserves stares. Forever.

Book Description:

Lagoon Lure resumes the story of Interpol expert Louisa Mangotti’s Venetian exploits and the paranormal assisted murder investigation she began in Love Spirits.

Still unnerved by the notion that Venetian ghosts are real, Louisa delves further into the deaths of two glassmakers while juggling the lustful manipulations of her ex-lover, Matteo, whose role in the murders grows murkier.

Meanwhile Louisa's usually shy sister, Barbara, explores her newfound sexuality with Venice's willing men, sharing her adventures with her sister but keeping one particularly mysterious man a secret.

When Louisa's best friend, "Rouge," arrives for Carnival to sample its masked men, she complicates the situation further by encouraging the sisters to embrace the pleasures of Venice.

Paranormal clues and apparitions lead Louisa deeper into the lagoon and she is forced to reluctantly enlist Matteo’s support. Can she trust him, or will this ghostly lagoon lure prove deadly?

Back Cover Copy:

Venice has its ghosts. They haunt its byways and canals. They linger on its numerous bridges and waft through its beautiful architecture—and they've taken a definite interest in Interpol expert Louisa Mangotti.

In Lagoon Lure, Louisa continues investigating the murder of two glassmakers she began in Love Spirits. Guided by clues sent from otherworldly sources, she struggles to determine what role her seductive ex-lover Matteo played in the deaths, constantly tempted by his handsome looks, his charm, and the volatile chemistry between them.

While Louisa is led by the ghosts to a sunken ship in the murky lagoon, her sister, Barbara, and best friend, "Rouge," embark on their own carnal explorations of Venice, sampling the men who flock to Carnival.

Amid corruption, conspiracy, and Venice's legendary sexual energy, it's all Louisa can do to think straight, let alone untangle this web of mystery. The ghosts, however, want her to persevere.
