(coming October)

A romantically-challenged woman retreats to New Orleans to recover from heartache but instead ensnares herself in a chilling ghost story.

Dumped, robbed, and heartbroken, Violet pawns her engagement ring and heads south to be the maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding. After feigning happiness for the bride, Violet’s moment of private agony is interrupted by Julien, a man she incorrectly assumes is her blind date.

One hundred years trapped in the same house with his brothers has turned Julien Dalcour into a bitter shadow of his former self. He wastes eternity searching for a way to break his ghostly curse. However, when he spies Violet walking down the drive, desire flourishes in his heart.

Violet agrees to help Julien break free from the voodoo hex. But, someone must pay for the crimes committed against the witch who cursed the Dalcour family, and that someone has no intention of allowing either Violet or Julien perform the ritual. When Julien vanishes, Violet is left to defend herself against a sinister force who intends to write her into this tragic supernatural tale.

Fans of Nora Roberts and Heather Graham will relish this haunting sixth book in the Paranormal Tales from Firefly Island series. Conjuring up the eternal fight between good and evil, DAMNED brings to light the struggle to remain true to those you really love.
