I know Halloween hasn’t officially arrived, but Christmas isn’t far behind. Today, I’m happy to welcome my friend Tammy Tate back to my blog with a FREE ebook sure to put you in the holiday mood. And, psst…it’s her birthday. What a fun way to celebrate! 🙂
Thank you, Mae, for inviting me to your wonderful blog, today! I’m always delighted to be here and knock around checking out your latest findings about ghosts, myths and legends. I’m also thrilled to share my latest release, THE CHRISTMAS CRUISE.
It’s almost that time again! And, like the last two years, I have written another holiday story to warm the heart, make you smile and say “I didn’t see that coming!”
As you know, romance is my passion! Unfortunately, I can’t stop there. I have to sprinkle in mystery, or paranormal, or time travel and a dash of humor. THE CHRISTMAS CRUISE is no exception. Taking a cruise during the Christmas holidays isn’t the norm, but then again, neither am I…LOL
THE CHRISTMAS CRUISE, is a time-travel romance about Ally who lets her friends talk her into taking a cruise over the holidays, leaving Miami, Florida going to Bermuda. It takes them along the edge of the notorious Bermuda Triangle. But, with a tropical storm brewing in the Atlantic, the captain sails deeper into the heart of the Triangle so the passengers can still enjoy the trip topside around the pool.
Right away Ally is attracted to Brad, who heads up the ship’s security. Who wouldn’t be? He’s gorgeous, buff and has incredible eyes. Only problem is, he tends to be a little on the arrogant side, but charmingly arrogant. The first evening on the ship he gets bad news regarding his ex-girlfriend and drinks himself into a stupor. He goes from arrogant to full-fledge jerk. Good looking or not, Ally vows to never speak to him again.
Of course, that’s before a mysterious fog creeps across the bow of the boat and they get up close and personal with the legendary Bermuda Triangle!
Fact or fiction, I’ll let you decide 🙂

Despite planes and ships disappearing in the legendary Bermuda Triangle for decades, Ally takes a cruise with friends from Miami to Bermuda. It takes them deep into the heart of the North Atlantic. She soon learns motion sickness is the least of her worries. Right away, she’s drawn to Brad, the head of security, only he’s arrogant and obnoxious, and she decides she wants nothing to do with him. Then the ship encounters an eerie green mist and they wake up on a deserted island. Now they must pull together to survive a dangerous storm, a waterspout, and evil pirates. As their relationship grows, they have to confront the biggest threat of all…their feelings for each other.
Excerpt for THE CHRISTMAS CRUISE
Curious to know his business aboard the ship, she asked, “Do you work here?”
She rolled her eyes. “I don’t play word games, Mister—”
“McNeal,” he said. “Agent McNeal, at your service.”
“So, Mr. McNeal, are you here on business or pleasure?”
He shrugged a broad shoulder. “Normally, I escort the president. This is what I get for requesting a vacation.”
“Does that mean pleasure?”
“Business. I’m in charge of security.”
Stunned by his odd demeanor, Ally shook her head but recovered quickly. “Should I be worried?”
He lifted a dark brow. “If I told you, I would have to kill you.”
She paused, at his bluntness. What if he wasn’t an agent at all but a stowaway? Or worse. An unhinged killer impersonating one of the ship’s staff.
He tossed back his head and laughed. “I’m kidding—”
She blinked. “About which part—”
“I knew that…”
“Excuse me, but, I don’t think the captain would approve of you calling one of his passengers, a liar. Especially not one paying for a luxury suite.”
“I know where you’re staying, Miss. Collins.”
