Burn on the Western Slope

Hello folks! Today I’d like to present to you author Angela Smith, whose novel Burn on the Western Slope has just been released. The genre is contemporary romantic suspense and the publisher is Crimson Romance.

For this occasion, Angela is doing a virtual super book blast tour with Goddess Fish Promotions for one day only. Angela will be rewarding one of three prizes: a car mirror hanger or key chain (a seashell as a tie-in to her book), an mp3 album by Pretty Little Blisters or a $10 Amazon gift car, to a randomly drawn commenter. She’ll also award an mp3 album by Pretty Little Blisters to a randomly drawn host.

 
Author Bio and links
During her senior year in high school, Angela was dubbed most likely to write a novel because she always had her nose stuck in a book. She would hide her romance novels under her history book until her teacher caller her out on it. Writing has been her dream ever since her mother read Brer Rabbit to her sister and her so often that they were able to recite it back to each other before actually learning to read.
She loves reading about the adventure of love, and getting involved in the legal field developed her love of suspense. She believes love is a mystery that most people have trouble resolving. While she doesn’t expect we’ll ever solve that mystery, she loves to read and write about characters who work to solve their love’s mystery.

Book blurb

On the ski slopes of Montana, deception turns deadly and seduction becomes more hypnotic than jewels.

Reagan McKinney is on a mission to discover more about a deceased uncle who mysteriously left her a sizable inheritance, a condo in the mountains, and a stash of stolen jewels.  With both her graphic design career and her love life in shambles, the opportunity to begin a new life couldn’t have come at a better time.  When she becomes involved with the sexy FBI agent next door, she finds her struggle is not only to keep her heart intact, but her life.


Grief stricken after an undercover investigation ends in the tragic death of his partner, FBI Agent Garret Chambers goes home to find solace in the arms of his mountain home.  That is, until his boss assigns him to investigate the spirited brunette staying in the condo next door.  He is assigned to investigate Reagan’s involvement with a large jewel fencing organization, but his investigation becomes comprised when his attraction to her heats up.  Will his discovery destroy everything he has come to love, including Reagan?


Excerpt

Garret blinked, slowly, and she watched his chest rise and fall. “Did you know something about Kyle?”

She threw her boot at him. He caught it. She cursed.

“I knew he was a dirty cheating slime ball. Just like you.” Reagan tugged on her socks and her knee-high boot, tightening the lace in record speed. Standing, she marched to him and seized the other from his grasp, refusing to look at him. Her balance teetered as she tried to slip it on, but she wouldn't give him the satisfaction of seeing her helplessness. She braced one hand on the wall as she loosened the lace and lugged on the boot, refusing to sit. Refusing to reveal any kind of vulnerability or regret.
 
Garret remained in the doorway, watching. Unmoving. She pushed past him, his woodsy scent all the more reason to hate him, or at least hate the effect he had on her. She donned her jacket, slipped on her gloves, and tore out the front door.

“It’s too far to walk,” Garret called behind her.

“I’ll take my chances.”

Garret pulled on her arm and whipped her around. Eye level with his chest, she didn’t fail to notice the tension streaming out of every pore of his body. The cords in his neck bulged with each breath. His eyes, a deep, dark, abysmal dye, wouldn’t let her inside his head. Which was a good thing, now that she knew the psychosis of his mental state.

  2. Glad to have you here, Angela. Perhaps I can also let you know how I like to travel - I love boats and trains. When possible, I make trips by using the rail or a ferry.

  4. I love the ferry, but don't have a chance to take it very often at all (since I'm a few hundred miles from the closest ocean).
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Ingeborg!
