Most of my books are thrillers (the Val Ryker series and the Codename: Chandler series) and romantic suspense with an emphasis on the suspense (Small Town Secrets and Rocky Mountain Thrillers). So when Rebecca York and Patricia Rosemoor approached me to write a series of paranormal romantic suspense trilogies with them, I jumped at the chance to do something a little different. The result was three serial stories (Gypsy Magic, Renegade Magic, and New Orleans Magic) and two novel trilogies (Security Breach - available in 2018 - and Return to Jenkins Cove, which will be released November 1, 2017.
For all five of the projects we did together, we took research trips to explore our settings. Our trip for Return to Jenkins Cove took Patricia and I to Rebecca's neck of the woods (Maryland). We stayed at a bed-and-breakfast on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay, and plotted out our series using St. Michaels as a loose model for our small town of Jenkins Cove, Maryland.
Something evil lurks in the charming town of Jenkins Cove. When Sophie Caldwell devotes a room in her B&B to communicate with spirits, dangerous secrets rise to the surface, and the lives of three couples will never be the same.
