Thank Goodness All Parties Don't Happen on Sunday Morning!

Morning Party-Goers!

Thanks to our  hostess Goddess Fish for throwing this shindig!

I had a busy Saturday so I'm a bit discombobulated (how do you like throwing that word around early in the morning?).  But I'm happy to be here to tell you about my latest romantic suspense novel that is launching this month.  It is entitled CAPE CURSED, and it involves lighthouses, hurricanes, curses, secrets, revenge and, of course, love.  I've already gotten great feedback from my readers--everything from "This is your best book yet!" to "You've nailed the Southern man!"

Here's a bit about the novel to whet your appetite and enhance your Sunday brunch:

Inspired by the actual relocation of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse in 1999, Cape Cursed is set on the fictitious Outer Banks location of Cape Destiny, North Carolina. Bliss Sherman comes to the cape determined to make a name for herself and her new firm by accomplishing an incredible engineering feat—moving the Cape Destiny Lighthouse inland before it's swallowed by the Atlantic Ocean. 

Bliss, who has struggled with dyslexia, discrimination, and betrayal by her ex-husband and former business partner, Jonathan, faces her greatest challenge when she falls in love with the handsome, mysterious descendant of the lighthouse keepers, Parker Swain, who vehemently opposes moving the lighthouse. 

When Bliss is viciously attacked, she begins to wonder if the curse that is rumored to be attached to the lighthouse may be true. Who is sabotaging the move? Who is trying to ruin her? Who wants to kill her? When all clues point to Parker, she dismisses her suspicions, deciding to trust him and her heart, but as the evidence mounts against Parker, she begins to doubt not only herself and her heart, but Parker. 

Can she trust her judgment? Can she trust Parker? Most importantly, when she is trapped inside the lighthouse with him during a hurricane, can she trust Parker with her life? 

CAPE CURSED is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.  I also invite you to visit my website or blog, where you can find out more about me, my other books, and how to sign up for my newsletter.  I often run contests for my newsletter subscribers, and I would love to add you to my list of reading friends.  

So here's a question.  How do you plan to spend your Sunday? This day kicks off the NFL season.  Will you be watching football?  Cooking Sunday dinner?  Doing laundry?  Reading CAPE CURSED?  (I hope!)  I will monitor the football games, but I'm going to be pulling weeds and planting mums and checking back here to visit with you and to find out how you are spending your Sunday.   

Thanks and talk to you later on in the day!
