In the third and final installment of the award-winning Afterlife Series, she’s got nothing left to lose; he has everything to gain…
A longtime resident of the Afterlife, Xavia Donovan has vowed to do whatever it takes to get out of the realm of the dead and move on. She didn’t expect “whatever it takes” to mean counseling the baddest bad boy to cross her path—in life or death.
On Earth, Osiris Cavanaugh spent lifetimes betraying his country, betraying his compatriots, and betraying the one person now assigned to help him become a better soul: Xavia.
With the help of an unusual child on Earth, they’ll conquer their pasts. But now that they’ve come together, will their futures tear them apart?

If they weren’t already dead, working together would probably kill them.
After one too many disappointments, Jodie Devlin took her own life. Until a new future can be created for her, she serves as one of Death’s bounty hunters, retrieving souls who haunt Earth. She’ll need smarts, charm, and trickery to convince these specters to give up the ghost and move on. These same skills come in handy for dealing with her bull-headed, know-it-all trainer.
Luc Asante’s wife ordered him taken off life support, condemning him to employment in the Afterlife. Now he’s saddled with a trainee who’s as soft-hearted as he is hard, as impulsive as he is methodical. In a place where perfection is the norm, she flaunts her flaws just to drive him nuts.
When the two confront the secrets of their past, only the ultimate sacrifice can save them both.
What sacrifice is too dear when the reward is eternal love?
Disillusioned Afterlife bounty hunter, Sean Martino, is transferred to the Probation Department, where he counsels recent suicide attempters by sending them subliminal messages while they’re asleep. But he’s unprepared to match wits with former child star, Isabelle Fichetti.
It’s not every day a woman gets to date a dead man. Although Sean’s appearance in her life isn’t exactly a dream-come-true for Isabelle, she likes having him around for scintillating conversation and trips to faraway places–all while never leaving her bed. Still, after years of abuse and abandonment, and with no rosy future to look forward to, she’s not about to give up on her plan to kill herself just because he asks.
After breaking the rules one too many times, Sean is cut off from all contact with Isabelle, but not before providing her with a reason to live. Now, she’ll choose the path her future takes and confront her greatest fear. Alone.
Unless Sean can find a way to fight for her from the other side…
