THERE�S A GHOST IN HER BATHTUB AND A WEREWOLF IN HER GARDEN!
When lovely Viveca Stanhope fled a scandalous past in Old San Francisco to make a new life for herself in Savannah, little did she know she�d just purchased the most �haunted� house in the entire South! From the ghostly specters prowling the square to the ax woman stalking her yard, �Hangman�s House� is indeed a fright. And Viveca�s �Nightmare on Lost Lane� comes complete with a half-crazed housekeeper, a mysterious houseboy with a fetish for knife-throwing and numerous other strange bedfellows.
Still, Viveca is determined to find her place in Savannah society and pursue a prominent local clergyman. But two sexy rogues stand between her and her goals: the bawdy ghost of Alexander Fremont, a lusty phantom who would invade her every bath; and Maxwell Beecher, Viveca�s devilishly handsome, arrogant new neighbor, who is equally determined to invade her bed! Both would know all her dark secrets; both would unmask the passions she struggles so hard to repress.
Will one of them claim her heart and soul before she loses her mind?
THE PHANTOM OF THE BATHTUB is a full-length, spooky and sexy historical paranormal romance of approximately 105,000 words.

A fun read - riley has knocked another one out of the ball park.
If you love time travel romances, this one is for you. The Phantom of the Bathtub was worth reading. I am definitely a new fan of Eugenia Riley
Sexual content throughout. Enjoyable if you like that.
This is a fun and funny ghost romance - I've been re-reading Ms. Riley's books and think this one is delightful. I enjoy her word-plays, the steamy scenes, and her liberated women in historical times.
A waste of time. I sometimes read historical romance. I don't mind that they are not great literature or that they contain sex scenes. But they should have SOMETHING to make them worthwhile. This one doesn't. Ms. Riley can write a simple sentence, usually. But the book is a collection of overused phrases - which she then misuses with distressing frequency. Our hero doesn't want the life of the halter or bridle (typical description of marriage), but "enjoys the ride of the free stallion." Really?? Is he riding or being ridden by the stallion? Either way, the implication is male on male sex and that was clearly not what she intended. Or, our heroine becomes so turned on that she longs to "mount" our hero like "a mare in season." She apparently doesn't realize that a mare doesn't mount the stallion - it just won't work that way. What is it with her and horses?? Especially since she doesn't seem to have any understanding of their mating behavior. And as for historical accuracy? Our hero is supposedly taking pictures with a pocket Kodak camera - in the age when autos are just beginning to be used. Lady, at least get your time period straight!! Pocket Kodak cameras came a LOT later. I read the whole 300+ pages thinking it had to get better based on reviews I'd read. It didn't. Maybe my review can save someone else the waste of time.
