Chasing the Dead, Book 1
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The Apache kidnapped me to dispel an evil ghost from their village. If I tell them I don't possess the same skills as my madre, they'll cut my throat and feed me to the dogs. Celesta was the best spirit chaser in all of New Mexico before she died.
The most I can hope for is that Emmett, my fiancé, will rescue me. Is he capable of such a thing? Poppy must not have thought so because he sent Deacon Bannister to save me. Deacon…the man who walked away days before our wedding a year ago. The man who still melts my bones after one look.
We're running for our lives from Uday, the vaporous ghoul tracking us. He lusts after Sacheen, the beautiful maiden banished from the Apache village who travels with us. The warrior killed her father when Sacheen refused to marry him, and then Sacheen's brother killed Uday.
The ghost's powers grow stronger every minute on our journey back to El Vaquero...and so does my love for Deacon.

Raves for Chasing the Dead
"I just finished reading this book and highly recommend it."
"What a fantastically original plot and story idea! If you like westerns, American history, the native American Indians or just want a read with some seriously sexy Bannister boys (cowboys!!), well then this one is for you."
"I found myself unable to put this novel down once I got started. I found it engaging and entertaining. With never a dull moment, I would definitely recommend it to anyone."
"I was pleasantly surprised to see that this wasn't just a western romance. It also has paranormal elements as well. That's not the only reason I would rate this a 5 star book."
"Diablo has kept the romance bones in the usual order- ankle connected to shin then knee etc etc - and fleshed them out with an Apache / Mexican / Cowboy overlay. Which I really like."
"The author does an amazing job at blending romance, western and paranormal into 1 page turner!!!"
"This book has it all, romance, paranormal, and sexy cowboys!!"
"Ghost and Evil Spirits, Oh My! Talking about one exciting adventurous story - WOW!"
