Hacienda Moon by KaSonndra Leigh

Excerpt

Crowds, noise, loudspeakers, coffee smells: words that described Raleigh-Durham’s airport. There wasn’t much difference between New York’s JFK and North Carolina’s RDU. The noise and crowds were all the same in these places. An airport was still just another way of transporting someone from one life-changing situation to the next. And Tandie’s journey was about to begin again in a small town located about twenty minutes away from where she grew up.

Waiting at the conveyor carousel, she picked up her two bags and headed toward the rental-car section. With her head pounding from jet lag, Tandie took the keys from the woman behind the counter and mentally reviewed her driving route. Turning, she collided with a set of broad shoulders. Her handbag fell to the floor, scattering the contents.

Ready to offer a chunk of her tired mind, she opened her mouth to complain, but stopped right away. Her victim was a man. This wasn’t just any man, though. He stood just under six-feet-tall, and had gorgeous dark hair flopping over a ridiculously handsome face. Dressed in a dark-blue shirt and gray cargo pants, the man knelt down right away to help pick up Tandie’s things.

“I’m sorry, ma’am,” he said, collecting Tandie’s items, which included tampons and sanitary napkins of all things to drop.

Their eyes met and locked on one another. His hazel-green ones took in her features with one glance. Her stomach flipped as if she were a young girl flirting with a cute guy. And something hitched in her chest, teasing her with a vague memory.

His muscular frame made him seem as if he could crush Tandie’s dainty little bag with one good squeeze. His strong facial features, full lips, and dark olive skin made him look Hispanic.

Damn he’s sexy!

Tandie concentrated on returning her things to the bag. If she were quick, then maybe he wouldn’t see her embarrassing stuff. Too late. He’d already picked up her little green Alwaysbag and placed it back in the satchel without even flinching.

Cringe and die, won’t you?

“I’m such an ox,” he said in a deep voice.

“You’re not the clumsy one. I should really watch where I’m going,” Tandie said, still too embarrassed to look at his face. She was aware of him staring at her, even though she couldn’t figure out why he was doing it. Tandie’s face flushed. Even her golden-brown skin must’ve turned crimson.

Standing up quickly, she stepped on the edge of her pants and stumbled backward. Her unintentional hero caught her with ease, steadying her body. What else would she add to her klutz list? She’d probably do something stupid like slip up and grab his crotch by accident next.

“Thanks. Again, I’m really sorry,” Tandie said and moved around him.

“Wait. Can I carry your bags for you? It’s the least I can do,” he said in a voice to match his looks.

“No. I’ll be fine, thanks,” Tandie said, walking toward the rental-car garage. Behind her, she felt him watching as she scurried away.

Hacienda Moon

A Pathseekers Novel

Love, obsession, and betrayal, the most powerful human  emotions, are spun together in this gothic novel. Tandie Harrison is a police medium who has just suffered a divorce after losing both her psychic visions and her daughter in a car accident. When she leaves New York City to start a new life near her hometown, she moves into the alluring plantation house, Chelby Rose, and falls for its enigmatic caretaker, Eric Fontalvo. Their burgeoning affair ignites a century old curse, ensnaring them in a web of danger, deceit, and intrigue. Soon Tandie learns that in placid Bolivia, the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected.

Hacienda Moon is a seductive tale of one woman’s journey to confront the demons of her past and find the courage to face her future. It is a mesmerizing novel that explores the deepest depths of human nature, and the characters will hold and haunt you long after you have read the final chapter.

Praise for When Copper Suns Fall

“The author’s style was fluid and there were lovely passages and lines throughout that I simply loved. The pacing flowed so well I felt like I was on a boat ride, grabbing onto the railings at times when the waves got too rocky until I was able to settle back and begin the ride all over again.”

Princess

A light-hearted playful contemporary romance of 55,000 words

Even though English was not Dr. Celinia DeForlani’s first language, she spoke it like a native. So why, when she encountered gorgeous dark haired green-eyed rugby player Bradlan Myers did she have such a hard time getting his name right?

It was her final day working at the small London dental clinic before returning home to her life as Princess Royal of Isola DeMarina, and the very last thing she expected was to find her remaining hours filled with the captain of the Norfolk Reds rugby team when he came through her door missing his two front teeth.

Celinia, who’d always had a mischievous and somewhat quirky sense of humor, struggles to cover her laughter as the big handsome somewhat cranky sportsman attempts to speak to her and can barely spit out a word coherently. The two communicate by written notes until she begins working on his teeth. He is due to play the saxophone at his sister’s wedding in only a few hours, and not only must he have his teeth fixed in time, he cannot have any anesthetic. Celinia speaks softly and reassuringly to him, as she works, though she continually mistakenly calls him Bradley.

Dental assistant Gloria Lewis is not only quick to correct her, but stunned that Celinia has no idea who Bradlan is. The man is world famous, as much for his looks as his rugby skills. He has graced the covers of more magazines than anyone can count. But Celinia has been far too busy working and studying the past few years to pay attention to such things.

The following morning when Celinia stops by the clinic on her way to the airport to say goodbye to the kind dentist who has been her boss for the past year, she discovers that Bradlan has sent her flowers. Though she cannot take them on the plane, she does take the card. And is amused to discover he has signed himself ‘Bradley’.

When Celinia arrives home, she relates the tale of Bradlan’s sudden last minute arrival in her office to her parents. Her sports loving father King Ricardo instantly recognizes the name, and the twinkle in his daughter’s eye as she speaks of the handsome athlete and sets about issuing an invitation for the Norfolk Reds to come to the island to play against his own team the King’s Warriors

A mischievous matchmaking king, a beautiful princess, a superstar rugby player, a naughty Siamese cat and three jealous courtiers make up the novel Princess.
