Bliss Sherman doesn’t believe in curses—that is until she arrives at Cape Destiny, North Carolina. Bliss comes to the cape determined to make a name for herself and her new firm by accomplishing an incredible engineering feat—moving the Cape Destiny Lighthouse inland before it's swallowed by the Atlantic Ocean. Bliss, who has struggled with dyslexia, discrimination, and betrayal by her ex-husband and former business partner, Jonathan, faces her greatest challenge when she falls in love with the handsome, mysterious descendant of the lighthouse keepers, Parker Swain, who is vehemently opposed to the lighthouse’s move. When Bliss is viciously attacked, she begins to wonder if the curse that is rumored to be attached to the lighthouse may be true. Who is sabotaging her dream? Who is trying to harm her? Who wants to kill her? When all clues point to Parker, she dismisses her suspicions, deciding to trust him and her heart, but as the evidence mounts against Parker, she begins to doubt not only herself and her heart, but Parker. Can she trust her judgment? Can she trust Parker? Most importantly, when she is trapped inside the lighthouse with him, can she trust Parker with her life? A romantic suspense with all the seaside moody romance of du Maurier’s Rebecca and the spine-tingling thrills that will make you draw the covers up closer as you read late into the night, Cape Cursed casts a spell of sensuous deception and seductive danger.
