This is a sort story set within the Crimson and Clover Series, but only to be found in the Red Hot Sizzle book.
Giselle, her Step-Mum, Dad and her Sister are all killed when their car crashes.
They come from a family of witches, warlocks, mind readers, elementalists, telekinisists and others with supernatural abilities.
So what happens is that Giselle’s soul or consciousness remains tethered to her worldly body rather than floating off as it should.
But in order to remain corporeal
Giselle needs a host body to inhabit – share. She can choose her host and whether or not to control it – use it as a body bag or just remain within and share its experiences. But the hosts available to her are not permanent she feels and also discovers that she compromises their life expectancy; and so she keeps searching – for a host she can control and that will be living the life with which she is comfortable and which she can enjoy for a long time.
This is a possession story from the point of view of the possessor rather than the possessed and explores why they are doing this and what they are looking for.
The story is told with empathy for Giselle, and then we begin to discover her real personality coming through – the selfishness of wanting to continue to live at the expense of someone else’s life and the desire that this would not be her only chance at life – the desire to continue to live in another’s body for a many years as she could manage – life after life after life.
