Grieving the death of her godfather and haunted by her cousin Cassies betrayal, Barrie returns from a trip to San Francisco to find the Watson plantation besieged by reporters and ghost-hunters. Some are hoping to see the ancient spirit who sets the river on fire each night, while others are chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold that may be hidden at Colesworth Place. Chaos descends as Cassie hires a team of archeologists to excavate beneath the mansion ruins. But more is buried there than treasure.

A mysterious, magical man appears at Watsons Landing, claiming the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion. With a mix of threats and promises, he engages Barrie and Cassie in a midnight visit, but the spell he conjurs has potentially deadly consequences.

While Barrie and dreamy Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie has to figure out not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliableEights or her own. With millions of dollars and the fate of the founding families at stake, she must choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.

Q. How has Barrie changed from COMPULSION to PERSUASION?
A. Shes stronger and finding her feetdespite her six-inch heels. Its not just her gift thats growing and developing. Shes also becoming more confident about standing up for herself and the gift that binds her to Watsons Landing. She has the yunwi to care for, and they help her find her strength.

Q. Are there new characters that you particularly loved?
A. Theres a hot new archeology student and ex-Marine named Berg, but the character of Obadiah was the most fun to write. I never knew until the end whether he was good or evil, and I never knew where the magic was going to take him. The nexus of Gullah and Native American cultures and magical systems that happened on the plantations, the melting pot of myth and folklore and medicine, has led me down endless rabbit holes of researchall of which led to Obadiah. He has spent his unnaturally long life learning magic all over the world, and since *I* know what happens in book three, I cant wait to share him. : )

Q. Can you share a teaser from PERSUASION?
If guilt had a taste, it was the copper-penny tang of blood in Barries mouth as she bit her lip. Eight was apologizing, and she was the one who had put her own gift ahead of his, her own opinions ahead of his. And she was still doing it. She had to keep doing it. She was worse than Seven. Or at the very least, just as culpable, since she was keeping Sevens secret.
