Read about them in the Highland Gardens series. Curious about the big cat? Florida panther~from the Crimson Storm paranormal novel, Sea Panther.

Sneak Peek Sunday - 'Just Beyond the Garden Gate'

Here is another sneak peek into Just Beyond the Garden Gate. Again, I selected an excerpt by randomly opening the book. Today's post is from pages 172/173. Laurie is storytelling to entertain Patrick while he recuperates from an injury...

“Let’s see, where were we? Oh, yeah. Our heroine and her companions are greeted at the gate by a horse of another color. As they travel through the city in a grand carriage, the horse’s coat changed from blue to green to yellow to orange to red.”

Patrick leaned against the pillows and allowed her sultry voice to flow over him, into him, to heal him. He’d nearly fallen into a doze when he noticed a change in her tone.

“She clicked the heels of her ruby slippers together and said the magic words and woke in her room at home as if from a dream.”

Laurie’s words cut deep. “Is that what you hope will happen? That you will wake and all of this…” Patrick waved his arm, “was nothing more than a dream?”

“No, I—”

“I am sorry, lass. You dinnae deserve my rancor.” Of course, she still wished to go home. He hadn’t given her a reason to want to stay.
