Gavin's Woman introduces us to Gavin Dunbar. He's the liaison between Ben Garrett, head of the PSI and the Institute for Psychic Studies, and the director of Homeland Security. Son of a Senator and former military, Gavin understands diplomacy as well as covert ops. He understands the need for flying under the radar. He's calm under pressure. Confident. Good with a gun.

His Achilles heel? Calea Fontaine.

Calea works at the Institute. She tried life as a PSI agent and hated it. Now, she's a teacher utilizing her gifts to ground her students, to help them explore and control their own talents. But she also has visions, quick glimpses into the future of happily-ever-afters, an hereditary gift handed down from her grandmother.

A gift Gavin Dunbar doesn't trust.

Too bad, really, considering Gavin is her soul mate. But he doesn't believe in Fate, wants no part of Destiny. None of that, however, keeps him from following her to the storm tossed coast of Oregon. 

Add in a psychopath with a dark obsession of his own, and Calea and Gavin are in a world of trouble. 

*****

When I sat down to start a new story, Gavin's Woman wasn't what I intended to write. But I'd had this story idea stuck in my head, rolling around my subconscious, along with a setting and a name. Calea. No idea who she belonged with. Then my critique partner had a dream.

Yep, a dream.

In that dream, she and I were somewhere on the coast, meandering through a street fair full of artists and craft people, when she turned to a vendor and said to him, "This is Gavin's Woman."

When she told me of her dream, that light bulb moment hit and I knew exactly who Calea belonged with, who she loved. And why it was all a big, huge problem!

I loved exploring Calea and Gavin's lives, and I hope you will, too!

Gavin Dunbar, liaison between the PSI and the government, is a low-level psychic himself. A man of the present who believes the future is too nebulous, too fluid - that it can't be trusted. His reasons are mired deep in a past he has no desire to examine. After all, in his world, having a soul-mate doesn't equate to happy-ever-after.

Tragedy has brought Calea Fontaine to a crossroads and has her reassessing her future without the man she loves. A seer from a long line of seers, Calea knows, firsthand, that while Fate might try to guide a person along a path, Free Will has a way of trumping Destiny.

Or does it?

Along the storm ravaged Oregon coast, a predator stalks Calea with an obsession born of a dark need, an overwhelming need to control and possess at any cost. The only obstacle is Gavin Dunbar.

GAVIN'S WOMAN 

.... available late January, 2015 ....

Northwestern Oregon. 

Early December, several years ago, I headed up north to visit two good friends who'd moved to the Portland area within a few months of each other. On a drizzly, chilly day the three of us decided to take a drive along a few back-roads, heading towards the coast, mostly just to see what we would see. With my camera never far away, this is one of the images I captured.

That trip was also the inspiration for the town of Eagle Crest, Jake and Rily Carrigan's hometown, where most of STOLEN SPIRIT and BLIND SIGHT take place. 

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, spent with family and friends you hold dear.
