Sneak Peek Sunday and Giveaway: Sea Panther

Eleven days and counting until the release of Sea Panther on March 20th. So very excited! Here is another sneak peek from Chapter One...

Available for pre-order
at Apple.
“Has Dr. Knight made any progress?”

Hope beat in rhythm with Robert’s blackened heart. The much-acclaimed ethnologist, who specialized in Caribbean Voodoo, was the most recent addition to the staff at the scientific foundation he funded in the Florida Everglades. The world believed the assorted experts in his employ researched the endangered Florida panther.

He choked on a dry chuckle. Their true objective was to find a cure for his malady. Dammit, they had better discover a solution soon, or darkness would claim what little remained of his humanity. Colin watched him expectantly.

“The good doctor is diligent, searching through piles of dusty historical texts. There are a few theories. Nothing concrete.” Robert released a frustrated breath. “I realize after tonight how desperate my need has become. I must return to Florida and undergo more tests. One of those expensive scientists on my payroll better find a cure before I destroy another human life.”

His friend clasped his upper arm. “I’ll see to the lass.”

“Aye, and arrange to have blood delivered at each port of call. I will not risk any more innocents.”
