Hello! Annaliese took a few minutes out of her day to answer some questions about herself, Garrett, and The Devil’s Bond.
Jennah: Hey! Thanks for talking to us today. Why don’t you tell the readers a little about what do you do for a living?
Annaliese: I’m an artist. I use multiple mediums: oils, charcoal, pencils.
Jennah: Do you have a favorite?
Annaliese: That really depends on the picture. *smiles* My favorite changes daily.
Jennah: Random question time…What’s your favorite animal?
Annaliese: Horses. For sure.
Jennah: What word best describes true love?
Garrett. J He personifies true love in my opinion. I guess I’m a little biased though.
Jennah: *shakes head* Why am I not surprised? Okay, then how does he personify true love?
Annaliese: He’s caring. Supportive. Trustworthy. *laughs* I could go on all day, but I know you want me to answer more questions.
Jennah: What song title best describes your relationship track record?
Annaliese: That’s a tough one. I don’t have a very long track record. If I’ve gotta choose one, I’d say “Goodbye Time” by Blake Shelton.
Jennah: Do you have an absolute deal breaker in a relationship?
Annaliese: Yeah, even with a short track record I’ve learned a lot. My deal breaker is someone who can’t accept me for who I am. I refuse to change me. If they don’t like then they can find the door.
Jennah: What first attracted you to Garrett?
Annaliese: *sighs* That’s easy. His hair. The first time I saw him he had it pulled back and tied at the nape of his neck. I wanted so badly to run my fingers through it.
Jennah: What are your favorite scenes in your book: the action, the dialog or the romance?
Annaliese: Definitely the romance. Garrett was so sweet. And good grief he knows how to handle himself in bed. Absolutely no complaints in that department.
Jennah: Okay, last question. Why do you think readers should pick up The Devil’s Bond?
Annaliese: Because Garrett is irresistable. Okay, so maybe that’s another biased answer. Garrett and I had fun getting to know each other. Our story is sweet and spicy. Fun and a little heartbreaking. But we make it work.
Jennah: Sounds like a good reason to me. There’s a little bit of everything in The Devil’s Bond. Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for having us here today. I hope if you read The Devil’s Bond you enjoy Annaliese’s and Garrett’s story.
Thank you Annaliese and Jennah for spending time with us and our readers today! THE DEVIL’S BOND sounds intrguing!
The Devil’s Bond
Contemporary Western Romance
Western Escape Series
Garrett Falcon stops at Devil’s Tower to fulfill a promise to his
grandfather. Then he saw Annaliese. He’ll say it was fate that sent
him to Freewill the next day. Taking a risk, he falls head over heels
for the pretty artist.
She’s on vacation, which means she still has to return Dallas even
though her heart seems to have found a new home. Can Garrett convince
her they were meant to be together?
Enjoy the following excerpt for The Devil’s Bond:
The clean scent of pine and sage from the prayer ties attached to the trees surrounded her. She added pieces of cloth to her mental checklist of details to include. These prayers represented the people of the area. The sacredness of the tower.
Over the years, she’d learned remembered sounds and fragrances added depth to her paintings.
“Excuse me, ma’am.” She turned around and found a park ranger behind her, his arms folded across his chest. The gold badge on his left pocket stood out against the green of his shirt.
“I’m sorry, but the park closes at sunset. I’m going to have to ask you to make your way down the trail.”
“No problem. I’ll just gather my things and head back. It’s so peaceful out here, I’d like to say I lost track of time. But that’s not true. The sunset was too hard to resist. I’m sure you understand.” She picked up her sketchbook, charcoals, and pencils then placed them in their respective spots in her bag. The sketch she’d started wasn’t complete, but she had enough to continue it once she’d settled into the hotel for the night.
The ranger offered a polite smile and held his hand out to help her stand. “I do, ma’am. It’s very peaceful out here. I’ve spent many nights under the stars, escaping the hustle and bustle of life.”
Oh, to see the night sky unhindered by city lights and sounds. “I can imagine. Have a nice evening.”
As Annaliese moved away from the ranger, she caught sight of another man a few feet off and to the left. The trees kept him hidden from her direct line of sight. Long, shiny, black-as-midnight hair fell down his back. From where she stood, only his profile was visible. He had skin the color of hot cocoa; sharp lines from his cheek and jawbone framed his face. He reached overhead and tied a purple swath of cloth to the tree. His lips moved, and she wondered what he was saying.
He tilted his head back and, for a split second, their gazes locked. She jumped, startled at the intense connection snapping between. A desire to remember his features, paint him, enveloped her artist’s senses.
A gruff sound from the ranger pulled her from her desires and daydreams. It was time to go. Freewill, Wyoming awaited her arrival.
Born and raised in Texas, Jennah is a transplant to Missouri long
enough ago she should probably consider that her hometown. But she
will forever be a Texan. She loves to write any story that will make a
reader smile, laugh, and maybe even cry (although you won’t ever hear
her admit that she cries). Whether the next story she writes is
contemporary, urban fantasy, LGBT, or whatever other crazy idea she
comes up with, there will always be love and romance in the midst of
trials and turmoil.
When she’s not writing you can find her on Twitter, with her family,
or buried in a book trying to escape reality for just a minute.
