'X' is for eXciting news!

I have some eXciting news to share! My follow-up to Tears on a Tranquil Lake was just contracted yesterday. The sequel is a fantasy romance, entitled Tortuga Treasure, a Ciel's Legacy series book. So, you can look forward to more adventures with my mermaids and pirates, along with plenty of dark Haitian vodou. The new book will release in January, 2012.

Here's a sneak peek via the blurb:

When Ciel first looks into Alvaro’s eyes she finds love. Bad timing. In the next instant he’s fatally stabbed in the back by one of his pirate mates. Her girlfriends warn her it will only bring on a heap of trouble to save him. Unable to resist, she gives him the gift of a new life as one of her kind--a merman.

Will their love encourage him to embrace life as a merman? Can love survive if he wishes to return to human form? Either way, her friends speak true. No matter how much mermagic and dark vodou Ciel and her friends cast, blood-thirsty buccaneers chase them across the Caribbean until Alvaro finally decides.

Warning: This book contains a magical cock-a-too, lecherous scurvy pirate dogs, hoodoo healers, the mark of the evil Black Spot, lots of dark Haitian vodou, and passionate encounters on tropical beaches.
As if I wanted more torture by writing TWO 'X' posts, today, I'm guesting over at India Drummond's blog, so please follow this link and read my eXcellent post about Xanadu.
