I have welcomed Sorchia Dubois to my blog so she can share her book, to be released October 28, 2016. This is my way of paying-it-forward to other authors.
Take it away, Sorchia!
Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones is Book 1 in a 3-Book romantic suspense series. Book 2, Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen, and Book 3, Zoraida Grey and the Pictish Runes, will be released in 2017. The three books follow Zoraida from what begins as a relatively simple quest to pinch a healing crystal to a journey of self-discovery and adventure. She vows to put her love life on hold until she achieves her goal, but the seductive spells of the beguiling Logan witches may be too powerful to resist.
Granny’s dying, but Zoraida can save her with a magic crystal of smoky quartz. Too bad the crystal is in Scotland––in a haunted castle––guarded by mind-reading, psychopathic sorcerers.
Getting inside Castle Logan is easy. Getting out––not so much. Before she can snatch the stone, Zoraida stumbles into a family feud, uncovers a wicked ancient curse, and finds herself ensorcelled by not one but two handsome Scottish witches. Up to their necks in family intrigue and smack-dab in the middle of a simmering clan war, Zoraida and her best friend Zhu discover Granny hasn’t told them everything.
Not by a long shot.
Excerpt from Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones
“Your Granny taught you a great deal, I’ll wager.” His brows knit together. The suspicion returns to his eyes.
“She taught me enough.”
“Are you sure?”
“What do you mean by that?”
“I mean Castle Logan is not what you expected, is it? You’re out of your depth here.”
“I wouldn’t say that.” I resolve to stand firm, though he is so close I can feel his warmth and smell the musk of sweat and dirt on his clothes.
“Don’t pretend to be something you are not. We scare you. Admit it.” He scowls down at me.
“And I seem to scare you and maybe even Michael.” I scowl right back at him. “I don’t know why––since I am only here on vacation.”
Shea’s lips curl in a sneer. “Michael and I disagree about many things, but we are in total agreement about you. You are hiding something. Rest assured we’ll discover what it is in short order.”
“Everybody in this bloody castle is hiding something. Why should I be any different? It’s not like I killed somebody.”
Too late, I remember Miss Watson’s certainty that Shea killed the old laird. It’s never clever to bait an accused murderer. I move away but he grasps my arm, his eyes black with anger.
“You didn’t waste time learning all there is to learn from town gossip. Consider this. If I could kill my own uncle—toss him over the side of the tower and watch him break apart––what do you suppose I could do to you?”
