Overview

1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord "Butcher" Bedford. He stabs Lucy Tarleton—who spurned his king and his love—leaving her to die in her father's arms.

NOW: After the day's final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up…and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford's desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet.

Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison—a noted historian—is indignant at the prospect of "ghost hunters" investigating this apparent murder.

Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs. Has "Butcher" Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest—dead or alive—has taken over the house.

Or their lives could become history!

Read an Excerpt

"Are you Dolley Madison? Or, like, Martha Washington or something?" one of the boys edging toward the front of Allison Leigh's tour asked. He was about nine or ten, still awkward, but obviously determined to create some havoc—no doubt to avoid embarrassing himself in front of the few other teens and preteens on the tour.

A taller, older boy, maybe twelve, who might have been his brother, nudged him. "You idiot, they're both dead, and she's alive. And she's hot, buddy. She's way too hot even in that getup to be one of those old ladies." The second boy tried to look mature. He reminded Allison of a very young Adam Sandler. The boys were part of her tour, which included a mix of ages. Summer was just drawing to a close and families were still on vacation.

She heard someone behind her choke back laughter; it was Nathan Pierson, longtime board member for the nonprofit organization that now owned the Tarleton-Dandridge House. They'd had a meeting in the attic, where a small office was located. Cherry Addison, the remaining descendent of the Dandridge clan, had already moved on, spike heels clicking. Ethan Oxford, their eldest member, had politely made his way through the crowd. Nathan and Sarah Vining were the last of the four board members to leave the house.

Nathan grinned and winked at Allison as he approached. Sarah hurried to catch up with him. She was a wisp of a woman who had given herself frown lines worrying about the board's every move, while Nathan was the opposite, always certain things would work out. He was a slim and stately man in his forties, not exactly a father figure, more like a cool-uncle figure. And he was amused.

Ally shot him a warning glance, but he kept grinning as he stepped past her. When he looked back and winked again, she forced a smile to her lips and turned her attention back to the group.

"Well, thanks, I think," she told the boy who'd spoken. There was nothing like having a few young kids on the tour, giggling and not the least bit interested in the history of the Tarleton-Dandridge House—or the nation, for that matter. They didn't want to be here and were going to be thorns in her side if she didn't do something quickly. Ghost tours were the answer in situations like this.

To most kids an old house just seemed stuffy and boring. She understood how they felt, even though she'd always been the odd kid out herself—a history nerd, as Julian liked to call her. She was from Philadelphia; she'd gone to Boston for her bachelor and master's, and to New York for her doctorate, but she loved her own city almost as if it were a friend with whom she'd grown up. From the time she was little, she'd gaped at Independence Hall and marveled that she could stand in the same place where some of the greatest men in American history had stood.

She surveyed the crowd and concluded that the two boys were indeed brothers, dragged along on a historical jaunt by their parents, the attractive couple a few feet back.

"Actually, my name is Allison Leigh, and the person I'm dressed to portray is Lucy Tarleton. And," she added teasingly, "she's supposed to haunt the place, so I'd be careful if I were you." She took a step closer to the taller of the two brothers. "She wants you to know your history."

He grinned and struck a swaggering pose. "I wouldn't mind meeting up with a hot ghost," he said. "And I know all about her. Lucy Tarleton, that is. We went on a ghost tour last night! She was a spy. Like a Hairy Mata."

"Mata Hari!" his dad whispered, shaking his head in amusement but setting a hand on the boy's shoulders. "Sorry!" he murmured to Allison.

"It's fine," Allison assured him. She turned back to the boy. "Great, then you're in the know," she said gravely. "You could meet up with Lucy today. Or maybe the ghost of Lord Brian 'Beast' Bradley, who is said to have murdered several patriots in cold blood, among them Lucy Tarleton."

"Ghosts? Bring 'em on!" the boy shouted.

"Todd," his father chastised. "Keep it down."

"It's all right. Everyone loves historic ghost stories," Allison said. She did like kids and understood that they were going to be, well, kids. She just wished people would recognize the human toll of war and what history could teach them.

She stepped back to welcome her entire group of fifteen. "Good evening," she said loudly, "and welcome to the Tarleton-Dandridge House, here in historic Philadelphia!"

Trees swayed gently in the breeze, and the air had taken on a sweet chill that might have been the promise of rain or merely the slow descent from summer into fall. Dusk was coming, and with it, a soft fog. They hadn't shortened their hours at the mansion yet, but the last tour was usually out while there was still a glimmer of light in the sky.

Watching the sky and feeling the breeze, Allison Leigh thought she didn't mind the long days at all, even if she was tired tonight. Of course, a lot of what she did was by rote and she could do it in her sleep, but she was fascinated by history, and adored the old historic house where she worked as a guide when her teaching schedule allowed. Summers generally meant full-time guiding. She liked people, too, especially children and young adults, and valued the opportunity to show them where the fate of a nation had been decided and to discuss both the Colonial era and the Revolution itself.

On most busy days the other three guides did their share of the tours. Annette Fanning, a good friend as well as coworker, had left early, scheduled for a root canal. Jason Lawrence was leading the tour group just ahead, dressed in the manner of the British dandy, Lord Bradley, who'd resided in the house when the patriots had fled. Julian Mitchell, the fourth guide employed by the private nonprofit corporation that owned the house, had disappeared around lunchtime. He was an effective guide, but he was also running around auditioning with his band, and had a tendency to show up late or disappear early. With the last of the school-age crowd going through at the tail end of summer, his lack of responsibility was irritating, but this tour was it for the night—and then she'd be ready to close up and go home. They all liked Julian; he was just driving them crazy.

"Watch out! A ghost's going to follow you home," a young man in the crowd whispered to the boys. He smiled, looking at the young woman with him, his wife or girlfriend, as if watching the boys because he might want a few of his own one day.

"I don't think ghosts follow you home," the younger of the two brothers said bravely. "I mean, they're supposed to haunt a place, right?"

"Maybe they can follow you home!" his brother teased. "They can go through walls, can't they?"

"Stop it!" the younger one said.

His brother made chicken sounds.

Allison clapped her hands to draw their attention back to the tour. "The Tarleton-Dandridge House is open to help you understand the Revolutionary War and the occupation of Philadelphia, not to send ghosts home with anyone," she announced. "So, we'll start with a brief history, although I'm sure you know most of this. Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States. And the Declaration of Independence was written and signed here. But by that time, shots had been fired in Boston—and the British navy was occupying Staten Island. What you may not realize is that the First Continental Congress worked here before they decided on independence. At first, they were seeking a means to achieve…can someone tell me?"

Oddly enough, it was her swaggering young beau, the older brother, who raised his hand. "No taxation without representation!" he said.

"Very good. So, since it looked like the royal foot was coming down to punish the colonies for their revolt against taxes—and they'd already risked being hanged for protesting lack of representation, the next step was to go all the way. Make the stakes worth the consequences, in other words. But it wasn't the citizens of Philadelphia who were eager for war, or at least not all of them. Remember, this area was settled by the Quaker William Penn. He granted the city its charter. Those who believe in the Quaker creed are and have always been antiwar and antiviolence, but by the time of the American Revolution, this was a city of about thirty thousand, all mixed in their beliefs and backgrounds."

"Yeah! They were ready to fight for freedom!" the older boy said.

She nodded. "By then the colonies had formed the Second Continental Congress, so a fight for independence it became. But Philadelphia would pay the price. The British wanted the capital. According to their logic, if you took the capital, the rest of the upstarts would fall apart and surrender. However, General George Washington had learned from his Indian wars, and he waged a different kind of warfare. Still, we lost many battles and, as I said, Philadelphia and her residents paid a heavy toll."

She seemed to have won over the boys, which pleased her, and they were looking at her intently now rather than gawking.

"Gentlemen, if you will?" she asked the two brothers.

They actually seemed nervous as she walked back to the podium by the gate. She took out two mock Colonial muskets and gave them to the boys. The male guides carried exceptionally accurate reproduction muskets, but to entertain young adults before entering the house, the guides used mock-up plastic muskets.

"Now, how would you feel if I put you twenty feet apart and told you to shoot at each other? Do you think it would make a lot of sense?"

"You shoot enough and.I guess we could hit each other," the taller boy said. "Eventually."

"Maybe," the younger brother added.

She nodded. "Muskets of the day weren't great on aim. For every shot, a man had to load his powder, tamp it down and hope the enemy wasn't upon him before he could fire again. What are your names?" she asked the boys.

The younger brother was Jimmy, she discovered, and the older one was Todd. She had them perform and they followed her instructions, demonstrating a manner of fighting in which they walked toward each other, and then another manner, in which one of them hid behind a tree.

"George Washington had learned well, don't you think? He knew the British could outman, outpower and outdiscipline him. So if they wanted the city, he'd take to the countryside. Back in the 1770s, for about a hundred miles all around Philadelphia, there was nothing but wilderness. Washington could abandon the city, let the British move in for a while, and the Revolutionary government could keep trying to sway the French to join us, which happened in 1778. And the British knew they could become locked in, trapped. So they in turn had to abandon the city."

Allison checked the little watch she wore on a chain around her neck, and saw that she'd given Jason plenty of time to take his group through.

"Shall we enter the house?" she said, opening the gate that led up to the handsome brick house.

"Let's go!" Todd blurted out.

She arched a brow at him. He grinned, and she smiled back.

As she led her group into the small but beautifully manicured yard, Allison told them, "The house was built in 1752 of brick and stone, in what was known as the Flemish style, with alternating longer and shorter bricks. It was built for Lucy Tarleton's father, an Irish immigrant who rose to success and attained great riches as a merchant—and had no love for the British King George."

"Mad King George!" Jimmy said.

"Yes, so they called him." Allison paused on the porch, waiting for the stragglers to catch up.

"King George never set foot here, of course," she went on. "The days of kings leading their men into battle were long gone. But as for King George's war," Allison said, "there were two English brothers in control of the war effort here—Admiral Richard Howe on the water and General William Howe on land. One thing they hoped, of course, was that many citizens would be loyal to Britain and start coming out of the woodwork when they arrived."

"And there were citizens loyal to Great Britain, right?" Jimmy asked.

"Yep. There were citizens loyal to Great Britain, although many moved to Canada—the United Empire Loyalists—when the war began. But this city was a prize to the British, harder to obtain than they'd expected."

"The rivers weren't deep enough for the Royal navy!" Todd said. "I know that because we've been on so many history tours already!"

"Exactly," Allison agreed. "And there were numerous unseen obstacles under the water. It was difficult!

But eventually they made their way here." She continued the story she'd told so many times before. "Philadelphia fell to the British, and was held by them from September 26, 1777, through June 18, 1778. General Washington deprived them of greater victory by seeing that the city was abandoned and the Continental Congress moved to New York City. The British set up a puppet government in Philadelphia for that nine-month period. Meanwhile, the British soldiers enjoyed the warmth and comfort of some of these splendid homes, while Washington's men froze at Valley Forge. And so here, at this beautiful mansion, Lucy Tarleton stayed behind, pretending to be loyal to the Crown, throwing parties, and even feigning a romance with Lord Brian Bradley—soon to be known as 'Beast' Bradley, and soon to execute—without trial or king's command—the lovely patriot, Lucy Tarleton. Lucy was indeed passing British secrets to General Washington down in Valley Forge. She was passionate about her cause and she was to die for her efforts, in a rare but tragically vindictive incident. Follow me."

The front door led through a tiny mudroom with cut-glass windows and then into a grand foyer. "In the city, you'll find that many businesses were on the first floors of what are now historic buildings, while the living quarters were upstairs. But here, a servant would greet guests in the foyer, and determine where they'd go. Mr. Tarleton's study was to your right, while the salon was the first room to your left," she said, gesturing in those directions. "The kitchen is still a separate house out back, which prevented a cooking fire from reaching the main house. Beyond the salon is the dining room, and it gave the servants easy access to the kitchen. The left side of the house as you face me was the entertainment area, you might say, and to your right were the family rooms. In back of the study is the ladies' parlor, and behind that, the music room. You'll see an exquisite harpsichord there that actually belonged to the Tarleton family. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and the attic, which contained storage space and rooms for the servants. The Tarletons had five household servants who lived in the main house and a number of gardeners and grooms who lived over the carriage house, which is also preserved."

"Servants! I could use a few!" the boys' mother said, ruffling her younger son's hair.

    Heather Graham is one of my favorite authors for when the mood strikes.
    Each of the novels can be read as standalone, as each book deals with
    one member of the special FBI unit and their romance. I love that each
    case brings us a mystery to solve and a swoon worthy guy. The Uninvited
    tells Agent Tyler Montague’s story as he works to solve a murder
    investigation. The case is set in Philadelphia and involves the
    historic Tarleton House. Allison Leigh is a history professor and spends
    her summers working as a guide at the Tarleton House. Dressed in
    colonial attire, she is locking up after a busy day of tours when she
    discovers the body of a co-worker impaled by his own replica bayonet.
    While resident ghosts are good for drawing in visitors, the board is
    concerned because this isn’t the first bizarre accident to occur. They
    call Adam the head of the special FBI unit and Taylor Montague is
    dispatched from Virginia to investigate. Allison isn’t happy about this
    crew of “ghost hunters” invading the historic home, but when she begins
    seeing and hearing the voice of her dead colleague ..she might just
    change her mind. The tale that unfolds is suspenseful as they race to
    stop a killer. We previously meet Agent Taylor and I was delighted to
    finally get his story. He is ex-military and was a Texas Ranger who
    helped find a missing girl with the help of a ghost. Taylor is tall and
    lean and looks like a linebacker. I really liked this soft spoken man.
    He feels like people are intimidated by his size and are quick to make
    judgment about him. He finds himself attracted to the sexy, refined,
    intelligent dark haired raven, Allison. Allison isn’t ready to deal with
    the murder, let alone all this ghost woo-woo, but Taylor is so patient
    with her. *sighs* These two were obviously attracted to each other, but
    the discovery and dance was paced throughout the book allowing the
    romance to slowly unfold. The rest of the Krewe of Hunters arrived, but
    as is Graham’s style they worked the case mostly in the background.
    Hints were dropped about whose story we will get next and I hope I am
    right. The list of suspects was colorful and the secondary characters
    including the ghosts added to the suspense and mystery. The world
    building in Graham’s novels are always fun. I love the investigation
    aspect and piecing together the clues. Having ghosts provide clues and
    unlock lost mysteries is always intriguing. In this type of tale the
    story lines follow a predictable recipe; murder, boy meets girl, search
    for clues, fall in love, solve the case. Graham takes this recipe and
    mixing up a delightful new batch each time and I always find myself
    completely immersed in the tale. I love that the romance is just a side
    dish to the mystery. She knows how to serve it and this one was spicy. I
    enjoyed watching it develop, the awkwardness, tension, that first
    kiss..eep! While there is sexual content it is all implied and should
    not offend. I loved the dead colleague and fans of the Ghost Bartholomew
    should be delighted by him. While I had my suspicions about whom the
    murderer was, Graham surprised me with a twist at the end. I want to
    thank Mira/Harlequin and netGalley for providing this ARC in exchange
    for my unbiased review

    Good Book!

    was annoyed with Allison being so anti haunting. Tyler never said anything about the ghosts but she was very hostile towards him at the beginning when all he was doing was trying to help her. But things started turning around when she started believing and not being such a terrible person. It was well written though, just like her other books and I look forward to the next one in the series.

    Review: Uninvited by Heather Graham 5 STARS I know on Heather's

    Review: Uninvited by Heather Graham 5 STARS I know on Heather's krewe
    books my ratings as been up and down a lot it seems. This one has been
    more believeable if you believe in the possibilty of ghosts. Univited as
    a lot of history that I enjoyed and have not thought about in years.
    Makes me want to go and visit historcal sites. See Valley Forge, to go
    on the Ghost Tours visit the historical buildings of Philadelphia. Thier
    were some love scenes that I skipped over. Most of the story Univited
    takes place in and around the Tarleton-Dandridge house. (I tried to look
    up and see if it was real. Could not but the names appear around that
    time and place.) In the Tarleton-Dandridge house is open to the public
    and gives tours. The tour guides dress in period costumes and weapons
    are real but no gunpowder. Julian Mitchell was a guide but snuck away
    after lunch to play with his band for chance at a paying job. He snuck
    back into the house during the last 2 tours. He planned to beg Alliso
    forgiveness after the house was closed. Allison loves the house she has
    lived her whole life in that neighborhood. She is also a professor at
    the University and writes papers about the house and time. After She is
    alone in the house ready to lock up she finds Julian his jaw was stabbed
    on his bayonett. Thier was blood all over the area. The police question
    her for hours and then the FBI Krewe agent was sent to find out if thier
    was a problem or if weird suciede. Tyler Montague used to be a Texas
    Ranger and now works for FBI in special unit they call Texas Krewe. They
    all can see ghosts sometimes. Tyler is lead on this case. Tyler takes
    her back to the house and has her show him around even though its late.
    They find that the attic where Julian had his until the tours was over
    ransacked. So police came back to search the room. Tyler decides after
    looking over all the deaths at the Tarleton-Dandridge house in the last
    10 years needs to be looked at more. So he calls in the full Texas Krewe
    agents. Allison the next day sees the ghost of Julian and he asks her to
    help him. She faints. Everywhere she seems to go Julian shows up. She
    goes to counceling and that doesn't help. She even gets drunk. Allison
    does not want to be alone so she sticks close to Tyler. Tyler figures
    out she sees a ghost even if Allison does not believe in ghosts. Finally
    Tyler can see Julian and then his Krewe comes and they can all see him.
    The Texas Krewe and Allison stay in the historcal house to figure out
    who killed Julian and the others in 10 years. Who put a tourist in the
    hospital with a coma who's family was at the house and their boys asked
    a lot of questions about the ghosts. Thier is another death that
    happens. The Texas Krewe sets up camaras too see what is happening in
    the house. Their ME looks at the dead bodies to get clues. Julian ghost
    tells them that he did not kill himself. Allison tells a lot about the
    history around the house,town and new country trying to form. The
    History is told in ways that make it alive and got me thinking about a
    little different way. The story line makes sense if you just imagine
    that the ghosts can see, talk and appear to people. I had a good time
    reading this novel. I plan to read more from Heather in the future. I
    want to go back sometime and read her novels of the first Krewes Unit.
    This makes the fourth novel that I have read with the Texas Krewes but
    hopefully not the last one. I was given this ebook to read in exchange

    Highly Recommended

    Heather Graham has the best balance for supense, paronormal, and romance. I love the way she continues the theme in each book and I hope that she continues to work w/the Adam Harrison ideas.
