I so enjoy this time of year. Cooler temperatures make outdoor activities more fun. Perhaps a trip to the mountains and a hike to a waterfall. A waterfall is one of the settings in my paranormal novel Sea Panther. Robert and Laurie travel back in time to Jamaica 1715 to try to reverse the effects of a Voodoo curse. Dunn's River Falls was the inspiration for a playfully sexy scene for the couple.


Can love mend a fractured soul?

E-book available from Amazon,
Amazon UKApple,
  Smashwords, kobo, and Barnes&Noble.
Trade paperback available
at Amazon, BAM, and Barnes&Noble.
After evading arrest for Jacobite activities, Scottish nobleman Robert MacLachlan turns privateer. A Caribbean Voodoo priestess curses him to an eternal existence as a vampire shifter torn between the dual natures of a Florida panther and an immortal blood-thirsting man. For centuries, he seeks to reverse the black magic whilst maintaining his honor. Cruising the twenty-first century Atlantic, he becomes shorthanded to sail his 90-foot yacht, Sea Panther. The last thing he wants is a female crewmember and the call of her blood.

Although she swore never to sail again after her father died in a sailing accident, Kimberly Scot answers the captain's crew wanted ad to escape a hit man. She's lost everything, her fiancé, her job, and most of her money, along with money belonging to her ex-clients. A taste of Kimberly's blood convinces Robert she is the one woman who can claim the panther's heart. To break the curse, they travel back in time to where it all began—Jamaica 1715.

Dunn's River Falls - Jamaica

Where the hell is she?

Robert shifted the bulk of his weight from one leg to the other, yet again, and glanced at the mid-day sky. Bright sun. Blue sky. Weather would remain clear. He returned his stare to the outside of the ballroom’s double doors as if force of will alone would make Kimberly appear.

He’d been waiting for her on the terrace of the governor’s home for what seemed like an eternity. In reality, no more than a half-hour passed. After a quick post-ceremony toast to their nuptials, she’d gone to her room to change into a simpler gown.

Preferably, a garment easy to remove.

Soon she’d be all his. He chuckled. The governor had snickered like a fool and poked him in the ribs when he’d informed Robert of the romantic glen and waterfall in the hills above the great house. The secluded pools were ideal for swimming in the raw, or so Archibald said. A perfect spot for a tryst.

You'll need the book to read more about the tryst. Here is your chance to receive a gift e-book copy of Sea Panther (Kindle or Nook). Just leave a comment below telling me about your favorite fall outdoor activity. I'll draw one name out of the captain's hat after the hop has ended. Good luck!
