COMPULSION (HEIRS OF WATSON ISLAND, BOOK 1)
Print: Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse Audio: Tantor
Three plantations. Two gifts. One ancient curse.
Three hundred years ago, an ancient spirit cursed one of the founding families of Watson Island and gave the other two magical gifts that be-came compulsions. Arriving for the first time at her aunt’s plantation home, Barrie Watson finds herself haunted by the ghosts of a genera-tions-old feud and hunted by forces she can’t see. With the help of Eight Beaufort, who seems to know what she wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.
Coming up on a year later, Persuasion will grace the shelves in our bookstores and be available for purchase with many online retailers. To help ease the pain of waiting for Persuasion for a few more months, we will provide you with a lovely peek into this highly anticipated sequel. Check out a quote from Persuasion, along with the book cover, and the synopsis for the upcoming release!
PERSUASION (HEIRS OF WATSON ISLAND, BOOK 2)
Beautiful Creatures meets Gone With the Wind
As reporters chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold descend on Watson Island, Barrie Watson discovers more is buried at Colesworth Place than treasure. A mysterious, magical man claims the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion, and Barrie has no option but to help him find it. While she and Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie must decide not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliable—Eight’s or her own. With the fate of the founding families at stake, she has to choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.
