Chasing the Legacy
by Genie Gabriel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A jaded reporter with a penchant for flashy shoes stumbles onto an explosive story when a beast-man blows up her hometown. She hides her own secrets as she digs for a truth hidden deep in the past of this small mining town. When she turns to a soft-spoken bomb tech for help, they uncover evidence that could shatter lives and defuse their budding love. 


Excerpt: 

As she led the way up to the top floor of the house, Layla was overly conscious of Grady behind her. Of the shiver of excitement that he might be watching the sway of her hips and--

"Here we are." Layla turned and forced a smile as she pushed away the lure of falling into Grady's arms.

However, his gaze seemed focused on the magnificent telescope pointed toward the heavens. "Do you come here at night and watch the stars?"

"Sometimes." Layla tried to keep the disappointment out of her voice. Didn't Grady find her attractive?

Then he turned his full attention on her and a smile formed on his features, like the sun emerging over the eastern horizon. Layla's breath caught in her throat and her heartbeat accelerated. Like one foot had slipped into an abyss.

She stepped back, catching herself emotionally. "And that's the grand tour."

Quickly, before she decided the risk was worth taking, she moved back toward the stairs. And safety.

"What are the other rooms on this floor?" Grady followed more slowly and glanced into the open door of a room tucked into one of the turrets.

"Just...old stuff." Layla slipped between him and her old bedroom, deftly closing the door on the private world of her childhood.

Unfortunately for her peace of mind, that left Layla standing with her back to the door, facing Grady. Up close.

"Why did you leave town and not come back for so long?"

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

For years I've been fascinated by the puzzle of why some people collapse under life's traumas and others emerge triumphantly stronger. These triumphs of the human spirit over the ugliest of adversities became the basis for my stories. Yet my dramatic stories have always contained touches of humor, and sometimes I have great fun writing romantic comedy novellas. However, in all my stories, my passion for writing romance is an outlet for the powerful messages that people can overcome great difficulties, and true love can turn life’s heartaches into happily ever after.

  2. Good morning, everyone! This promises to be a busy day for me, but I'll be checking for comments off and on all day. All commenters will be entered in a drawing for a $10 gift card today as well as a $25 gift card at the end of the tour.

    In between chatting with all of you, I'll be doing something else I love--hanging out with dogs! Yes, there's a reason dogs (and other pets) usually show up in my books. I have my own herd of dogs--most of them rescues--and today I'm helping some friends with their pet sitting business.

    Do you have a dog or other pet you adore?

  3. I love all your stories, and I know I will love this one too. I lost my sweet Yorkie this year at age 13. I got her when she was 6 weeks old. I don't think I will ever stop missing her.

    1. (((HUGS))) on the loss of your Yorkie, Momjane. Furbabies who have shared my life all live in my heart forever. Sometimes I cry when I think about them and then I laugh at the happy memories, especially if they are a real character like my Border Collie, Ace. That doggie had attitude, and was the inspiration for the dog in my first full-length novel, The Rock Star.

      Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by!

    1. Hi, "Anonymous"! :) Bernese Mountain Dogs are awesome! My Border Collie, Ace--the one with attitude--looked like a small version of a Bernese.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi, Courtney! I have to admire flashy shoes from afar, since my back demanded I switch to "sensible shoes" many years ago. Fortunately, characters in a book can wear flashy shoes and not worry about achy backs, pinched toes, etc.!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hi, everyone! My apologies for being sooooo late announcing the winner of the $10 gift card to Powell's Books. Busy day away from my computer--unusual for me. And I'm dodging the symptoms of a cold--yes, me who never gets sick. Figure if I run fast and zigzag, the bullets--I mean the cold--won't hit me, right? Enough excuses! The winner this week is: Courtney Rene!

    Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and your names will go in the cyber-hat for the gift card drawing at the end of the tour.
