Scary #Halloween #Romance! Ghosts, Voodoo and Shapeshifters!

Do you like to read creepy ghost stories in celebration of Halloween and those crisp fall evenings? I do! When I visited Rose Hall Plantation on my honeymoon in Montego Bay, Jamaica, I was captivated by the true life legend of Annie Palmer, the wife of a wealthy plantation owner who killed her husband and many more husbands after. Raised by a Haitian nanny who taught Voodoo to little Annie, she was considered a very powerful witch. Nicknamed, The White Witch by her slaves, she certainly lived up to her name, filling their lives with terror and death. Recorded history says that she slept with many of her male slaves and then killed them. Visiting the dungeon where Annie kept her slaves gave me the chills and to know that her ghost still roams the plantation where she is buried today...well, I knew I had to write a fictional tale based on the true story. I hope my readers enjoy Voodoo Moon as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Blurb:When London rock star, Tammie Palmer inherits the historic plantation, Rose
Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica, she decides to make it her new recording studio,
moving her band, Witch Storm, to the haunted mansion. Tales of her ancestor,
Annie Palmer have been floating around Jamaica for nearly two centuries.
Horrifying acts of slave torture, black magick, Haitian voodoo and murder are
part of the legend of the White Witch of Rose Hall.

Ancient spells conjure a powerful houngan from the 1800's. A voodoo priest who
performed black magick to shift into a wolf in order to save his wife, Daisy from the White Witch. Now he's alive again, hell-bent on revenge against the witch's ancestor. But how can the shifter voodoo-king punish a woman whose scent reminds him of his former love? Can he confront his past and survive in this new world as a beast, without falling in love with his enemy?
