Blurb for The Wild Irish Sea

I received an extra holiday gift last week, and another little step down the road to publication for my third romantic suspense novel, The Wild Irish Sea.

The book has been listed for pre-order on Amazon for about a month, even though I still don't have a cover (here's a picture for 'inspiration'). But a few days ago, I discovered the order page now boasts this lovely blurb:

Parker O'Neill, using a summer hiatus to explore his familial roots in Ireland, inadvertently witnesses a murder and finds himself fighting for his life on the rugged coast of Donegal. Summoning his twin sister through the telepathic ability they share, she rushes to his rescue.

But to find him, she must enlist the aid of recovering alcoholic and former police inspector Kevin Hennessey, who wants nothing to do with the beautiful American telling him a wild story about murder and danger—all of which she has only seen in her mind.

Each reeling from a painful divorce, they try to keep their relationship on a strictly platonic footing; but the wildness of the sea, the magical legend of a lost selkie prince, and their own desperate efforts to find and save her missing brother before it's too late bring them together on levels neither one could ever have imagined…

If this book sounds a little more 'paranormal' than my previous two, that's because it is! I hope you will all still LOVE this story, which was my first written under contract from just a proposal. It was a challenge for me to write but also very rewarding.


May 2010 be filled with much joy and prosperity for you and your loved ones!

Cool blurb, and I'm sure the book is just great. Wishing you, and the books, all the best for the New Year.

Jane said...

That definitely whetted my appetite. Happy New Year, Aunty Cindy. Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2010.

Thanx Sheila!

I hope you and all my readers enjoy The Wild Irish Sea! I wish they had included the heroine's name -- Amber O'Neill -- in the blurb. Maybe whomever at Sourcebooks can make a few revisions. ;-)

And a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to you also, Jane! I'm glad you like the sound of the new book.
