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.”
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.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
