Blurb:
Bliss Sherman doesn’t believe in curses—that is until she arrives
at Cape Destiny, North Carolina. Bliss 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 is vehemently opposed to the
lighthouse’s move.
When someone targets Bliss, she begins to wonder if the curse that
is rumored to be attached to the lighthouse may be true. Who is sabotaging her
dream? Who is trying to harm 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 also Parker.
Can she trust her judgment? Can she trust Parker? Most
importantly, when she is trapped inside the lighthouse with him during a raging
hurricane, can she trust Parker with her life?
A romantic suspense with all the seaside moody romance of du
Maurier’s Rebecca and the spine-tingling thrills that keep you turning the
pages, Cape Cursed casts a spell of sensuous deception and seductive danger. A
Category 5 of a romantic suspense novel, Cape Cursed, barrels in packing a
surge of suspense that knocks you off your feet and a blistering romance that
sweeps you up and carries you away.
Excerpt:
When Bliss cleared the copse of
trees towering over the parking lot, she walked out across the broad lawn. Stars
were beginning to appear. It was so beautiful here. How could this place be
cursed?
Bliss looked over at The Keeper’s
House. It was dark. She walked up onto the porch, and called Parker’s name into
the screen door. No answer. Perhaps he’d gone out for dinner.
Disappointed, Bliss walked back down
the porch steps and headed toward the Explorer. From the direction of the
ocean, she heard a faint barking. Parker and Beau must be down on the beach.
She quickened her pace and headed
down the path that led over the dune, toward the pounding surf.
Bliss trudged in her heavy boots
through the sand, and as she stood atop the dune, she saw Parker and Beau
swimming in the frothy sea. They were gray figures in an inky ocean, and she
could barely make out Beau, his snout pointed in the air, as he paddled
parallel to the shore.
The white cap of a large wave
barreled in, and Parker standing in waist-high water joined his hands together
and dove into the bottom of it, letting it wash over him. He rose, his back to
her, as the wave crashed upon the beach. As Bliss was about to call his name,
the words caught in her throat. The wave spent itself on the shore and rushed
out quickly, leaving Parker in thigh-high surf. Naked.
Silhouetted against the darkening
sky, she could make out the carved muscles of his back, the narrow waist, and
his chiseled butt perched upon his strong legs. The same dark shade of the
ocean, he looked like some water-God rising out of the waves. She stood there
mesmerized by his unbridled masculinity, her mouth agape, admiring him. If he
was cursed, every many should be so unfortunate.
