Official Blurb:

Jodie Devlin's suicide is not the end, merely the beginning. With her future as a living human irrevocably destroyed, she must become an employee of the Afterlife until a new existence can be created for her. In the realm on the other side of death, she’ll learn how to retrieve ghosts who have lingered too long on Earth. If only she didn't have to work beside a good-looking, arrogant man who baffles and challenges her at every turn.

It's no wonder Luc Asante is so bitter toward women. His former wife ordered him taken off life support, condemning him to service in the Afterlife as one of Death’s bounty hunters. Now he has a trainee—a female 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 revels in her imperfections just to drive him nuts.

Traveling through time and space to bring peace to lost souls, Jodie and Luc will be forced to come to terms with their differences and their pasts, to discover a love that might bind them for eternity.

Jodie’s well suited for her Afterlife job. She thinks outside the box when it comes to troubling spirits. Luc is at first very angry that he’s been saddled with a trainee. She’s inexperienced and in his mind not well suited for the job. It’s when surprising things begin to occur both on the job and between them that you know that their partnering wasn’t exactly accidental.  Luc and Jodie are the yin to the others yang. Jodie’s soft to Luc’s hard.

Eternally Yours makes you sit down and think what the afterlife could really be like. This book has given me a completely different aspect. After finishing this book, I sat in silence, not at the story’s outcome, but the sheer humbling factor Ardito has given me. This book not only entertains, but also makes you really think about what’s in the Afterlife and about the things you do and their affects on those around us.  To say that Eternally Yours is enjoyable is a mere understatement.
