I’m delighted to share with you the cover for book 3 in the Jagged Shores Series: Deep Waters. It’s another smart and sexy cover which fits perfectly with the first two books. In the latest instalment we return to Nyemouth, that beautiful town on the north east coast of England for another thrilling story of love, passion and murder. I must admit, while I adore writing about Nyemouth, there’s no way I would want to live there. It’s far too dangerous.

This is possibly the darkest of the series with a plot involving deep secrets, rage and murder. There are some great new characters to fall in love along the way too. Christian is a handsome writer and journalist, who comes to Nyemouth seeking inspiration for a new book. Harry is a hot local tour guide and charter fisherman. Christian hires Harry to show him the rugged coastline. The guys are attracted to each other from the start but maintain a professional distance. Things get dramatic while out on Harry’s boat as the weather takes a sudden turn for the worst. As they return to shore, Christian spots a figure in the water, propelling them headlong into a deadly tale of secrets and tragedy.

It was a joy to write the developing romance between these guys amid the chaos they find themselves in, as well reconnecting with some of my favourite characters from the series such as Dominic, Arnie, Josh and Jacob. I love this one and hope you do too. It can be read as standalone but any readers who have read the first two books will find more to enjoy.

And a quick bit of other news, I’m in the last stage of finishing Jagged Shores 4. It’s too early to reveal anything about this one, other than to say it’s another great thriller. I’ll soon be writing a Jagged Shores short story which will be available free to readers direct from Pride Publishing.

In search of a story, he found murder and romance.

Author Christian Costner is researching material for one of his dark thrillers, and Nyemouth seems like the perfect setting for his next book. The small seaside town has witnessed plenty of trouble over the years, and Christian thinks it will provide him with the inspiration he needs.

He hires local tour guide and fisherman Harry Renner to help him explore the coastline for a couple of days. Harry is knowledgeable and mature beyond his twenty-eight years. Handsome, too, though Christian thinks Harry is far too young for him.

As the weather worsens, Harry cuts short their first sightseeing trip. Heading back to shore, they spot a figure in distress in the water. A difficult rescue is made far worse when they discover that the casualty has a knife wound to his abdomen and dies before they reach the safety of the harbour.

United by the trauma, Christian and Harry find comfort in each other, but when another murder comes to light, they find themselves at the heart of a dangerous mystery and the target of a killer more ruthless than they could ever imagine.
