I'm happy to welcome Tena Stetler to the blog today. Tena and I write monthly posts for Paranormal Romantics blogsite. Tena has a new release, and she's here to tell us about it. Welcome, Tena.
Hey there Diane! I’m thrilled to be on your fantastic blog today. Thank you for allowing me to share how A WITCH’S QUANDARY, sixth book in the award winning A Demon’s Witch Series came about. All books in the series can be read as standalones.
I was a paralegal for criminal law firms for 18 years before switching to IT for an electrical contracting firm. Got tired of the blood, guts, and egos. Besides mystery and romance, egos is what drove the plot of this story. Sort of. As I am a panster, the characters took off with this one and ran. It became a battle of egos, power and magic misused. A bit different from the mortal world of Legal battles, but….paranormal or not, the clash of egos and quest for power is very much the same. Someone is going to get burnt. LOL I know of what I speak. Gale, the heroine in the tale, first popped up in A Magic Redemption then insisted that she had a story to tell. Who am I to refuse a challenge like that?
A little about A Witch’s Quandary:
Gale's engagement is off because she refuses to leave her thriving business in Ireland to follow Dillon to Scotland. Her family and friends are on the emerald isle. Yet, when Dillon returns with the whole story and asks for her help, she must follow her heart.
Becoming a Solicitor, then partner in the family law firm was never Dillon's dream. Now it's his nightmare. Called to Scotland, his father demands he take his rightful place in the firm or be disowned and disinherited. Something is terribly amiss in the firm and family.
During Gale and Dillon's investigation, they discover the enforcer for the Demon Overlord is also delving into rumors the firm is acting illegally. Magic has been stolen, someone is being blackmailed, and a member of the Witch's council is corrupt. If Gale and Dillon want a life together in Ireland, they have to unearth secrets threatening to destroy the firm and family in Scotland.
A loud pop sounded. Gavin appeared in front of Dillon. “What the bloody hell is going on here? I felt shock waves all the way to me house.” Gavin paused to survey the room then glanced outside. “Quinn and Amos are on their way. Had to interrupt the poker game as there ‘twas a problem at the pub.”
The owl flapped her wings and let out several screeches in succession. Finally, she circled the house and landed on the porch railing clicking her beak angrily.
Gavin glanced at the picture Dillon held. “Good God man, what have you done?” Gavin tore the picture from his friend and stared at it. “Who’s the woman?”
“An old friend from college. Nothing more. She’s a reporter. I met her for lunch to find out what she knew about a case involving magic, my brother and I are working on. This picture was taken completely out of context.” He took the picture back and glanced at Gale. “We need to sort this out alone. Now.”
“A bit bold of you after that.” With her well-manicured fingernail painted in purple with silver sparkles, Gale pointed at the offending picture and glared at him. “You made your position quite clear when you left. Now a few weeks later you’re here making demands. Take your picture and yourself back to Scotland. Don’t darken my door again.” She whirled around and marched into the kitchen.
