Shadow Bluff Series
While Shadow Bluff may appear to be a sleepy little town, with its summer tourists,
friendly townsfolk, and picture-perfect landscapes of old-growth forests and green fields

overlooking the deep-blue ocean, all is not as it may seem. Few know the details of
the island’s past, and many have lived out their lives there without knowledge
or notice of the subtle supernatural pulse. But that will change….
For the island is alive and hungry for mischievous happenings. 

Once you visit Shadow Bluff, you just might never leave....

....Small-town sheriff, Alex Pillsner has always called Shadow Bluff Island his home. He grew up here. Got his first job here. He even fell in love here. Hard. With a ring in his pocket, he went to her house to propose. But she’d already packed up and left the island…and him. Problem is, even after fourteen years, she’s the only woman his heart wants.
....The day she graduated high school, Darla Markos left Shadow Bluff Island and never looked back. But fourteen years later, circumstances change and the island beckons her. As a single mother, she only wants to focus on her new business venture and her daughter. However, with her first step on the island, her past catches up to her…a sexy sheriff who proves to be a delicious distraction.
....But long before Alex and Darla, before the quaint town of Shadow Bluff ever appeared, other forces were at work on the island. Oh, they’ve heard the folklore, even witnessed the occasional odd happening. But neither believes it’s more than late-night tales told to spook children. However, when Alex’s quiet life suddenly turns upside down and an evil entity threatens Darla and her daughter, he’ll be forced to make decisions he’s never imagined.
