Bucket list of Mystic Rayne from An Angels' Unintentional Entanglement @TenaStetler #RLFblog #Paranormal Romance MysteryLet’s meet Mystic Rayne from An Angels’ Unintentional Entanglement, a paranormal romance by Tena Stetler. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Fallen warrior angel, Caden Silverwind, lives alone in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, healing from physical wounds as well as the mental anguish suffered during battles with dark demons. Then he finds a woman barely clinging to life after a horrendous beating. He is not prepared for the entanglement she brings to his life, nor the feelings she awakens in him.

Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent, Mystic Rayne’s personal dilemma and assignment nearly gets her killed. Divine intervention is a complication she never expected and her growing attraction to Caden is undeniable. Can she trust him with her secret?

Their quest to uncover her attacker takes them from the pristine mountains in Colorado to the wilds of Wyoming. Along the way, they find answers which may place them in more danger. Determined to solve the mystery, they must also navigate their feelings and fears to find love and unite heaven and earth.

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 35+

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Wind River Valley Reservation

Profession: Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent

Ethnicity: Native American Indian

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Tall, slender, long thick straight black hair that falls nearly to my waist. I usually wear it in a long braid hanging down my back. High cheek bones, full lips (at least that what Caden claims) and bronze skin.

Please tell us a little about yourself. I attended Harvard Law School to the chagrin of my grandfather. He’s or was the shaman for our tribe. I had an independent streak a mile wide and wanted to spread my wings off the reservation. As it turns out, my destiny was right here helping my people. Which is how and why I became a Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent assigned to Wyoming’s Wind River Valley. After my grandfather passed on, I took his place as shaman and on the tribal council which didn’t set well with the younger men of the tribe. Times they are a changing which nearly cost me my life.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Caden Silverwind. He’s a warrior angel. But that’s a story for another time. Maybe you should read to book to find out. <wink>

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order? I am the older twin. I have a twin brother. We were estranged for a long time. I managed to keep this a secret from the author for quite a while. LOL

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child. A stuffed eagle my spirit animal. I used to carry it around insisting it could fly. Which it couldn’t, but it helped me understand visions that I tried to deny. I was a difficult child.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Decadent cocoa pie with meringue topping. Yum!

Tell us about your best friend.

Chinoah – We’ve been friends since we could walk. My grandfather dubbed us the trouble twins with good reason. LOL

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Niagara Falls and tour the United States in an RV. This is a great land and I’ve seen so very little of it.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

The plot of land in Colorado where I was attacked by my own people. Not that my people are bad, just one that let evil spirits lead him. Other’s made bad choices, but you have those types wherever you go. Don’t you?

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

That’s a tough one. I’d like to meet the original government council that set up the reservations and put my people on them. I’d like to know their reasoning. History paints an ugly picture, I’d like to know if it was true and given the outcome, if they’d done anything differently.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

The man who tried to take my birthright away. He was a vicious manipulator. He did unauthorized things with the tribe’s power given to him.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I’d like to go back in time before my grandfather died. Tell him he was right and I’ve made my peace with my destiny. I also wish I’d spent more time with him, learned the old ways from him. But I know he’s proud of me.

About Tena Stetler

Tena Stetler is a best-selling author of award winning paranormal romance/mysteries. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends. After many years as a paralegal, then an IT Manager, she decided to live out her dream of pursuing a publishing career. She now has eleven books published, two under contract and several in the pipeline.

With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of witches, shapeshifters, demons, faeries, and gryphons, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling their tales.

Colorado is home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a fifty-year-old box turtle. When she’s not writing, her time is spent kayaking, camping, hiking, biking or just relaxing in the great Colorado outdoors.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

 

 

Why did you choose this character for the interview today? Her strong spirit and fearlessness. She guided this story and kept the other character’s in line as much as possible. There are a cast of strong willed characters in An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

 

 

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you? That she had a twin brother. Didn’t see that coming.

 

 

Are any sequels planned for this book? An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement is the fourth book in A Demon’s Witch Series. A Magic Redemption was released in December of 2018 and I’m working on the sixth book in the series as we speak. All the books in the series are can be read as stand alones.

 

 

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet? I have a cozy mystery series simmering. I hope to bring it to fruition in the near future.

 

 

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? You are the reason I write my stories. I am so thankful for your support and continued reading of my books. For you, I want to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. Characters that will grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh. Nothing feels better to a writer than to have readers clamoring for the next book. It makes my heart soar. Thank you all so much!

Check out the Character Bucket list of Bruce from A Demon's Witch @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance Let’s meet Bruce from A Demon’s Witch, a Paranormal Romance by Tena Stetler. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Demon’s Witch.

A Demon’s Witch by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C., is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running. Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.

Bruce’s world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce’s long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation, but something darker awaits them all. Yet undeniable attraction between demon and witch promises to tear apart both their professional and personal worlds.

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: looks 35 actual age 600 years

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Earth

Profession: Demon Overlord of the Western Hemisphere & I can style, cut and color hair. Don’t do I much anymore.

Ethnicity: Demon/Angel

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Demon/Angel

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Approximately six feet six inches tall,

Chestnut hair with blond streaks, shoulder length with a bit of a wave in it

Muscular with a few battle scars

Rubs his jaw. Guess you’d say I’ve a square jaw and sculptured cheek bones (according to Angie.)

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I’m the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere. From my highly successful Wycked Hair Salon, I keep my finger on the pulse of DC’s power players and their activities. My human appearance is striking (my demon’s appearance is quite different with scales, reddish cast to my skin) and I’ve never lacked for female companions which keeps rumor mills running and my enemies off balance. Within the walls of my salon, my anonymity is safe, mostly.

Who is the significant other in your life? Angelique Shandie. We met when she sashayed into my salon, rain-soaked to the skin, delivering flyers for The Krystal Unicorn, her new age store down the block. The attraction was intense and immediate. Never felt anything like that in my six hundred years. I knew then and there she had to be mine. I had no idea the complications that would ensue.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I am an only child. There’s a very good reason for that.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

He Laughs. Never played with toys, always honed my magic and skills as a warrior. My father insisted.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

A porterhouse steak, medium, baked potato loaded, home made rolls, a nice green salad (No onions) and dark chocolate mousse for dessert.

Tell us about your best friend.

Tristian Shandie, he’s my enforcer and unfortunately the big brother of Angie Shandie. That became a tangle and is a story for another time. Tristian has always had my back and I still trust him with my life.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

I’ve been to Australia on business once. I’d like to go there for an extended visit. I’m not known there and I think it would be fun for Angie and I. Did you know there are species of creatures (normal not talking about paranormal) found nowhere else in the mortal world? The landscape is awe inspiring. Before I left there, I purchased land down under with a nice ranch house.

Ireland and Scotland, explore all the castles. I’ve been there on business and would like to spend vacation time there with Angie.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

Seventh level of Hell. Tristian and I had to deliver a prisoner, never want to go back.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Garth Books, Dolly Parton, Bob Seger. I enjoy their music.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

Ex-girl friends. Angie asked too many questions and I am not the same person since I met her.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there? The day Angie’s parents were murdered. She was only twelve years old. I’d attempt to defuse the situation before it got so out of hand or if not possible annihilate the Demons responsible. A little girl deserves to know her parents. And a big brother, only twenty-one years old, shouldn’t have to raise his little sister.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book? It was my debut novel. My editor was fantastic. I learned a lot. Besides that Bruce was a difficult multifaceted character to write. I am a panster and he changed course often.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today? I loved the character I created. He was so much fun to write, even though it was challenging. (He’s named after my husband) Do they share characteristics? I’ll never tell. LOL

Are any sequels planned for this book? A DEMON’S WITCH was the book that started it all. Since it was first published, there’s been four more books in the series and I am working on the sixth. I’ve been extremely lucky with the series popularity!

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you? I spent a few years as a DJ on a popular Rock and Roll station in my city.

Bucket list of Tristian Shandie from A Warlock's Secrets by Tena Stetler @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #MysteryLet’s meet Tristian Shandie from A Warlock’s Secrets, a Paranormal Romance/Mystery by Tena Stetler. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Warlock’s Secrets.

A Warlock’s Secrets by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Years ago, a sacred ceremony at the Dragon’s Moon Coven turned deadly. Son of the high priestess, Tristian Shandie’s life changed forever. With a price on his head and revenge in his heart, he has no choice but to follow in his father’s footsteps to a profession shrouded in secrets. Now his skills as an enforcer for the Demon Overlord are second to none. But dangerous secrets he harbors are a liability he can no longer afford.

A chance meeting with a woman he finds irresistible flips Tristian’s world upside down. Hannah is a cyber security specialist with secrets of her own. Bad boys never appealed to her until Tristian, who changes everything. In his darkest hours, she is dragged into his magical world.

If they survive, is she strong enough to heal his heart and tame the warlock? Or will their secrets destroy them?

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: Late 30’s
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Ireland
Profession: Enforcer/Assassin
Ethnicity: Irish

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Approximately Six feet three inches, muscular, long legs, broad chest.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I was, I guess I still am to some extent the Enforcer/ Assassin for the Demon Overlord of the Western Hemisphere. In the last year, I have transitioned from the hands on position to managing my teams of enforcers who keep the peace between the paranormal creatures residing in the mortal world.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Hannah Shaughnessy – She’s one tough lady. Never met anyone like her. I was impressed with her at our first meeting. Hannah is a cyber security specialist with secrets of her own

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I’m the firstborn son of the high priestess of our coven. I have a younger sister, Angie, I raised after our parents were murdered.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

Toy, I don’t remember. Favorite thing to play with or hone would be my magical powers.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

I love a thin crust pizza with beef, lots of cheese and sauce.

Tell us about your best friend.

This may sound strange, but it’s my boss. Bruce. We’ve worked together for years and have had each other’s backs for most of that time. Well there was an incident or maybe a time we didn’t see eye to eye. In fact I tried to kill him. He dated and eventually married my little sister. That was a difficult situation, but in the grand scheme of things it worked out.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Australia – The country intrigues me. Did you know there are species of creatures (normal not talking about paranormal) found nowhere else in the mortal world? The landscape is awe inspiring. And no one knows me there.

In my line of work, I see the worst of just about all the countries in the mortal world. So not many places left for me to visit before my time is up. I own a beach house in Hawaii. I realize you mean places l’ve never been, but as I said, not many of those, only one in fact and I listed it already. So back to my beach house, it’s the only place I can relax, enjoy friends and be myself. Let my guard down, well mostly, never completely, which would be a fatal mistake.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

Seventh level of Hell. Been there to deliver a prisoner, never want to go back.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Not many of these either. Garth Brooks or Jon BonJovi. I enjoy their music.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

Several of the other Demon Overlords. They, unlike Bruce, are always stirring up trouble. They let things get out of hand before addressing it. Then myself, or one of my teams are called up to terminate the situation. Know what I mean?

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

The day my parents were murdered. I’d attempt to defuse the situation before it got so out of hand or if not possible annihilate the Demon’s responsible. We were caught of guard and by surprise. I vowed never to let that happen again. My sister deserved to have a childhood. I did the best I could, but was very strict with her in light of the death of our parents.

It’s a short fun flirty paranormal romance with a happy ever after ending. Something I think we need more of these days.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?

I hope my books act as a stress reliever while you are whisked away from your ordinary world into a romantic fantasy adventure for a few hours. Thank you so much for buying my books. Psssst… Charm Me is on sale for only 99 cents for a limited time!

Tena Stetler, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Mystic Maples by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Earth/Fire witch Mercy Rose’s insatiable curiosity always gets her in trouble. After a break-in at her Colorado flower shop, and a court battle that comes to a screeching halt in her favor, she arrives at Deerbourne Inn for a much-needed getaway. Looking for peace and quiet, she finds just the opposite in a startling handsome but mysterious man and his dog.

Silvanus Forrest’s gypsy/fae heritage is a double-edged sword. The land he inherited from his parents is rumored to be enchanted. But when Mercy discovers the truth, his well-ordered life unravels, and they’re catapulted into the past to right a wrong. Along the way their lives intertwine, and they discover the true meaning of family and love. Will they change the past in time to save their future?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

Not really. I write Paranormal Romance but each of my books contains a mystery as well. I’m also excited to mention I have just finished my first cozy mystery. It will be a series of three.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Dreams, headlines, people watching or eavesdropping in a busy place, maybe a park, shopping mall, or a campground. Did I mention I have an overactive imagination, which helps with ideas. LOL

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Why write Romance? For me crafting a romance is all about RESPECT, TRUST and LOVE with a bit of mystery, travel, and suspense sprinkled in. Most of my characters are of the paranormal persuasion. I try to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. I want my characters to grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh.

When did you write your first book?…

It was a vampire romance. I think I was around twelve or thirteen years old. I gave copies to all my friends. My mom was less than impressed.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather

Black or red? Red

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Satin Sheets

Ocean or mountains? Mountains

City life or country life? I’d like a combination of both.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home

Dogs or cats? Dogs
