Hi everyone! First let me give Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words a great big thank you for hosting my cover reveal. Thanks guys!

I’m super excited to be here today to show off the beautiful cover for my upcoming release. Lost Souls Found comes out on April 17th, and it’s the next book in my Requiem Inc. series. When I wrote the first one, Ghost of a Chance, I didn’t know if I’d get the opportunity to write Sam and Michael’s story. But their relationship was important to the characters, so I wrote in Sam’s crush and some hints as to how Michael feels about him. So I was thrilled when Dreamspinner gave me the green light for Lost Souls Found because I got to bring their journey to love to the page.

Their relationship isn’t the most easy one. They definitely both have some learning to do. But there’s no doubt they’ll get there in the end.

And to showcase this story, Aaron Anderson worked his magic again and brought a gorgeous cover to life. The cover model is how I picture Sam, and he’s got a mischievous streak. Just look at that smirk! Aaron also did a great job mirroring the look of the first book, while making this cover wholly it’s own. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the right one.

You don’t have to have read Ghost of a Chance to understand Lost Souls found; they are both standalone. I recommend they be read in order so you can get a little background first, though it’s not strictly necessary. Either way, I hope you get a chance to pick up this book when it comes out.


Dying is all in a day’s work. Love is more dangerous.

Ghostwalker Sam Jones has been half in love with Michael King since he started working at Requiem Inc. But Michael is his boss and a Guardian, to boot. Sam thinks they could make it work anyway, but Michael uses his position and his age to keep Sam at arm’s length.

When Sam continues to volunteer for the most dangerous cases, Michael has to intervene. He tells himself he’s just doing his job, but he’s always seen Sam as more than another operative, and he can’t bear the thought of not taking his chance. The connection between them has been strong from the beginning, and Michael’s telepathy adds unexpected depth and an edge to their new romance, but working together while they try to build their relationship might be the hardest part of their job if they don’t make some sacrifices.

About the Author

Kris T. Bethke has been a voracious reader for pretty much her entire life and has been writing stories for nearly as long.  An avid and prolific daydreamer, she always has a story in her head.  She spends most of her free time reading, writing, or knitting/crocheting her latest project.  Her biggest desire is to find a way to accomplish all three tasks at one time.  A classic muscle car will always turn her head, and naps on the weekend are one of her greatest guilty pleasures.  She lives in a converted attic with a way too fluffy cat and the voices in her head.  She’ll tell you she thinks that’s a pretty good deal. Kris believes that love is love, no matter the gender of people involved, and that all love deserves to be celebrated.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.


  1. Well, when I was a kid I saw a ghost in my sister’s room. I thought it was just a fragment of my imagination but then my sister also saw the same shape.
