ABOUT Margaret Ethridge

Margaret Ethridge
Margaret Ethridge lives with a sweet-talking Southern gentleman who claims to be her lawfully-wedded husband. She is the (not-so-wicked-but-she-has-her-moments) step-mother to their two children, the adoring mistress of three spoiled dogs, the food purveyor to eleven hungry goldfish, a More...


Camellia Stafford has never been alone in her room. For twenty years, she's been engaged in a fierce power struggle with her bedroom's previous tenant, Frank DeLuca, the ghost trapped in the light fixture above her bed.

Caustic and cranky, Frank has one soft spot-Cam. Over the years, their feelings for one another have evolved from grudging friendship to an enduring love that burns white-hot until Frank puts his feelings for Cam on ice.

When she suffers the loss of her beloved father, Cam returns home to say good-bye, and confront her feelings for Frank. She finds an unexpected shoulder to lean on in neighbor, Bradley Mitchum. Cam falls hard and fast for the handsome ad man's charming smile and passionate nature, but Brad's easy-going exterior masks a steely backbone tempered by adversity.

Two men: one living, one dead, and both vying for her love. Now Cam must determine if her heart is strong enough to choose which dream could lead to a love that will last a lifetime.

"Paramour is that story prolific readers search for that only happens once every now and then. Ms. Ethridge made something completely magical and I feel thrilled and humbled to read something as great as this story. Frank, Cam and Brad's story sang to me in such a way that I lost myself for awhile in the imaginary world and characters of Paramour. I laughed with them, I cried with them, and my stomach flip-flopped with them because I understood these characters in so much depth that I felt they were real.

Simply put: Paramour blows the roof off the house! I believe this new author is someone to watch. She's going to make waves, especially if she can continually produce stories like Paramour." -- BookingIt rated Paramour 5 stars
