A Murder Mystery, a Ghost Story, and a Dangerous Romance all combine to make Blood on the Chesapeake a Suspense Thriller That You Just Cannot Put Down.

Wilshire, Maryland seems like the perfect shore town on the Chesapeake
Bay—quiet, scenic, charming—and promises Darrell Henshaw a new
start in life and a second chance at love. That is, until he learns the town
hides an ugly secret. A thirty-year-old murder in the high school. And a
frightening ghost stalking his new office. Burned by an earlier encounter
with the spirit world—with the OCD scars to prove it—he does NOT
want to get involved. But when the desperate ghost hounds him, Darrell
concedes.  Assisted by his new love, he follows a trail that leads to
the civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and even the Klu Klux
Klan. Then, when two locals who try to help are murdered, Darrell is forced
to decide if he’s willing to risk his life—and the life of the
woman he loves—to expose the killers of a young man he never
knew.

Second Book in The Haunted Shores Mysteries Just Released!!!

Crimson at Cape May

The Haunted Shores Mysteries, Book 2

Release Date: July 20, 2020

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press

No matter how far you run, you can never really escape a haunted
past.

Darrell Henshaw—teacher, coach, and paranormal
sensitive—learned this lesson the hard way. Now, with his job gone and
few options, he heads for Cape May to coach a summer football camp. The
resort town, with gorgeous beaches, rich history and famous Victorian
mansions, might just be the getaway he needs. Only, no one told him Cape May
is the most haunted seaport on the East Coast.

When a resident ghost, the Haunted Bride, stalks Darrell, begging for his
help, he can’t refuse, and joins forces with Cassie, another sensitive. As
Darrell and the street-wise teen investigate the bride’s death, they uncover
something far more sinister than a murder. Can Darrell and Cassie expose
those behind the crimes before they end up becoming the next victims?

#PreOrder “Gatekeeper: Book One in the Daemon Collecting Series” by Alison Levy

cover

~~~

 “Alison Levy takes us on a fast-paced ride between the seen and unseen worlds she so richly creates. Her gift for nuance makes the keen reader question truths in our own world as Gatekeeper sets us up to eagerly anticipate the next installment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” –Stacey L. Tucker, author of The Equal Night Trilogy 

Gatekeeper is a wickedly fun romp from start to finish, and Rachel Wilde is a fiery protagonist who doesn’t take crap from anyone or anything. In her debut novel, Levy provides an action-packed story with a delightful taste of the immense, unique world-building to come for future books in the series.”
―Cheryl Campbell, author of Echoes of War

Rachel Wilde is a collector. She is responsible for locating troublesome daemons and human marks. Rachel is assigned four different tasks. The first two are easy and the second two are a bit more difficult. The third task consists of hunting down a human mark. This particular human mark is going to be a lot of trouble. The fourth task is to locate the last living member of a particular gatekeeper bloodline.

During Rachel’s first encounter with the human mark, they get into a physical altercation. As he flees, Rachel sees that he’s dropped a flash drive. Rachel needs a language specialist in order to understand what is on the flash drive. She contacts a woman named Leda Morley, an assistant to the museum curator at Rigaceen Museum. Leda works on translating the flashdrive. Rachel later visits the museum, and witnesses Leda get kidnapped. The kidnapper is the human mark that Rachel is after. Rachel follows the man and ends up getting kidnapped too. He puts Leda and Rachel in the basement. Rachel and Leda are able to escape. The human mark gets locked up. Leda ends up being the last living member of the gatekeeper bloodline that Rachel was responsible for finding. The human mark gets locked up, but an Arcanan breaks him out of prison. The Arcanan tells him to get to work.

Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska.

About the Author

Tracy’s storytelling career began when she picked up a copy of LaVyrle Spencer’s Vows on a college beach trip. A journalism degree and a thousand romance novels later, she decided to try her hand at writing a southern version of the perfect love story.

When not writing sensual stories featuring complex characters and lush settings, Tracy can be found reading romance, snowboarding, watching college football and figuring out how she can get to 100 countries before she kicks (which is a more difficult endeavor than it used to be with her eleven-year-old son in tow). She lives in the deep south, but after spending a few years in NYC, considers herself a New Yorker at heart.
Tracy has been awarded the National Reader’s Choice, the Write Touch and the Beacon – with finalist nominations in the HOLT Medallion, Heart of Romance, Rising Stars and Reader’s Choice. Her books have been translated into German, Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish. She loves hearing from readers about why she tends to pit her hero and heroine against each other and that great novel she simply must order in five seconds on her Kindle.

#GuestPost Kirk Zurosky, author of “The Immortal Divorce Court Series”

Series Inspiration

~~~

What inspired me to create the Immortal Divorce Court series?Kirk Zurosky

The Immortal Divorce Court Series was created from my experiences as an attorney, and my going through a hellacious divorce.  It inspired the premise of what could happen if you were an immortal creature of myth, but you had a habit of making really bad relationship choices.  We have all had that one relationship (or more) where when it was over we wondered just what in the Hell were we thinking!  But, what if ending up in literal Hell was one of the consequences for those bad relationship choices?  So with that idea in mind, I created the Immortal Divorce Court universe where immortal vampire assassin, Sirius Sinister, is getting haled into Immortal Divorce Court by his femme fatales, but also meeting and making eternal friendships with an incredible cast of mythical characters along the way.

What do I want readers to take away from the Immortal Divorce Court series?

cover3Immortal Divorce Court is at its core a book about Sirius Sinister’s relationships with his family, friends, and paramours.  Sometimes when Sirius meets someone in the book there is an instant connection and a lifelong (in this case a really lifelong!) friendship that develops.  The people we meet and love, and sometimes those that we meet that really aren’t good for us, are ultimately the people that help us to grow and change to be the best people we can be.  The Immortal Divorce Court world is not that much different from our own in that we need other people to be at our very best because without love and friendship life can be pretty hard and lonely.  So, the take away for the readers is that to be your best self you have to put yourself out there and experience the wonderful diversity that is humanity.

Do I have a favorite Immortal Divorce Court character?Kirk and Daisy

I enjoyed creating and writing dialogue for all of the Immortal Divorce Court characters, but I especially liked the challenge of portraying Garlic, the vampire Maltese, as the real person she is without any actual spoken dialogue.  Garlic is based on our wanna be vampire Maltese, Daisy, who can absolutely communicate when she is irritated, that you Kirk and Daisy2shouldn’t be ignoring her, and most importantly in getting more than her fair share of dog treats and belly rubs.  There is no doubt that she has mastered teaching old humans some new tricks.  As a lawyer, I have taken great joy in writing dialogue for Maximillian Justice, Sirius’ divorce attorney.  It was such an absolute blast to push the envelope with what he says and does in the Immortal Divorce Court courtroom.

 

What was your inspiration for writing such steamy sex scenes?

Though he doesn’t realize it at first, Sirius Sinister is on a quest to find his true love, and I just thank the heavens every day that I found mine.  I didn’t know what love was until I met my wife, Susie.  When you are in a relationship that doesn’t mesh everything about it seems difficult, and forced.  However, if you are ever so lucky to meet your true match in life, everything is effortless and natural, and every instinct is the correct one.  So, in effect with the Immortal Divorce Court Series, I wrote a seven volume love story to my wife, and she has graciously allowed me through my writing to share some of the most inspirational and intimate parts of our life.  And, as the saying goes – you write what you know!

Have I been to all of the places in the book that Sirius Sinister travels to?

One of my favorite things to do in life is to travel the world with Susie.  I have been fortunate to visit many of the places where Volume One is set and the locales of the next six volumes as well.  But, because the book is set over several centuries, I had to do a lot of research as to what was happening at the time in history that I was setting the story there.  Of course, I haven’t been to Hell (though my first marriage certainly felt like it might qualify…)

Immortal Divorce Court Volume 1:

My Ex-Wife Said Go to Hell

SYNOPSIS

Sirius Sinister keeps sleeping with the wrong women. And this time, it’s led to his imprisonment in Hell. Literal Hell.

Immortal vampire assassin Sirius Sinister has a healthy libido that constantly results in bad relationship decisions. But when he’s served divorce papers by Bloodsucker Number One—a shady woman from his past—he realizes there’s a major problem: he was never even married to her, or so he thought. Regardless of the truth, Sirius is put under the jurisdiction of Immortal Divorce Court.

You would think by now he’d know having sex can lead to horrific consequences like marriage, children, and ex-wives—but some habits just won’t die. Leaving his faithful vampire Maltese, Garlic, behind, Sirius travels to court to defend himself with the help of his demon attorney, Maximillian Justice. Unfortunately, the trial quickly spirals out of control, and Sirius is banished to hell for a hundred years.

When Sirius finally escapes, he ends up in the Caribbean where he meets his next paramour: the Howler. After a wild romp with his new werewolf lover under the lure of a full blood moon, he finds himself becoming the father of a litter of pups—but, the Howler and her Pack want to put the dead in deadbeat dad. Luckily, Sirius is saved by the Queen of the Merfolk, who comes with a hidden agenda even as they fall in love. Can he make it work with the Queen, or will he have to head to Immortal Divorce Court once again as yet another relationship flounders?

For all those who have nursed a broken heart—or a vengeful one—Immortal Divorce Court Volume 1 is a sexy, exciting debut and the start of a hellishly fun new series about the flawed antihero Sirius Sinister.

EXCERPT

The ceiling was rustic wood and four empty coat hooks hung just above the headboard of the bed I was lying on.

Seeing light from the corner of my eye, I turned my head toward it. The small room had another bed near the window, an iron stove in one corner, and a small table with two chairs in the other. The walls were made of the same rustic wood as the ceiling. Outside, the repetitive sound stopped. A few moments later, the door opened to reveal a man carrying an armful of wood.

His scarlet coat and Stetson hat announced his profession.

“What the shit? A Mountie?” I gaped, jolting upright. My joints ached, and my skin smarted as though I was covered in bruises.

“I see you’re awake. How are you feeling?” the Mountie asked.

“Who are you? Where am I? How did I get here?” My panicked voice sounded unfamiliar in my ears.

He walked over to the corner and stacked the wood near the stove. “You must have hit your head pretty hard there. I’m Constable Delaforet. You’re in Farrloch. As for how you got here, I found you in the forest near the barracks, half-clothed, unconscious, and chilled to the bone. I carried you in here.”

Farrloch? Alberta?

I eyed the Mountie, squinting suspiciously, as he removed his hat and placed it on the table.

His steady voice sounded as though he was trying to calm a frightened animal, and his light blue eyes were soft with pity. His brown hair was tousled from his hat, and his face was shadowed by what looked like two-day stubble. He seemed to be in his mid-twenties, around my age.

I took in his strong, broad shoulders and solid frame, and I knew I wouldn’t make it past him if he tried to stop me.

I was unconscious in a forest in Canada after I got hit by a train in Chicago? I looked under the blanket at what I was wearing. He said I was half-naked.

I wore what seemed to me to be pajamas: white cotton capris with lace cuffs and a short-sleeved chemise. What the…? Okay, this obviously isn’t real. I must be in a coma somewhere.

I nodded to myself before swinging my bare feet out of bed.

“You should rest, Miss,” Constable Delaforet advised as I got to my feet. When the blanket fell away to reveal my pajamas, he cleared his throat and averted his eyes.

“I’m fine,” I assured him. I mean, what can happen in a coma dream anyway? I marveled at how vivid everything was. It didn’t feel at all like a dream. Then again, I’d never been in a coma before, so maybe it was normal.

I took a few steps toward the Mountie, amazed at the feeling of the cold floorboards under my feet. Delaforet instinctively reached out to steady me when I wobbled a little. His large hands were warm on my shoulders.

“Miss, I really must insist you rest until you’re well. At the very least, you can’t go out in your undergarments.”

Undergarments? What kind of coma dream is this? “Tell me, Dudley, what year is it in this coma-created world?”

His eyebrows pulled together in concern. “Miss, this is very much the real world. We just celebrated the turn of a new century. It is 1900. Please, it’s clear you’re disoriented.”

I allowed him to lead me back to bed. 1900, huh? My subconscious is amazing. Everything is so detailed.

I stared at Delaforet’s profile as he tucked my legs under the blankets. Have I seen him somewhere before? I’ve heard that your brain never dreams faces it hasn’t seen. Where would I have seen such a hot guy? I feel like I’d remember that. A movie? Well, since this is a dream, I can do whatever I want. Right?
