VBT: SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY- THE LEGACY OF BUCHANAN'S CROSSING BY RHEA RHODAN


THE LEGACY OF BUCHANAN'S CROSSING
BY
RHEA RHODAN
 

BLURB:

What price will destiny demand?

Warding the Crossing has always been Cayden Sinclair’s destiny. With her beloved Gran growing weaker, it’s time the little witch took her place. Juggling substantial curves for her frame and an inconvenient inability to control her power has always been a serious challenge. But not until discovering her fated Keeper is the extremely hot, tragically clean-cut insomniac who’s ignored her for months, does she truly fear failing her legacy.

Now that he’s finally on the road to the top with an offer from a big developer, Clint MacAllen can’t allow his struggling construction company to be threatened by a vicious nightmare, or his inexplicable attraction to a goth clerk working the graveyard shift at HandiMart—no matter how potent they are.

J. Milton Developments has its own agenda for Buchanan’s Crossing, and they’ll spill blood to get it.


EXCERPT:

“I found the Keeper.” Cayden squeezed the ring in her pocket. How had Gran known she was cursing him when she’d not spoken a word of it aloud? The only sound in the room was Rob Roy’s bent tail twitching against the windowpane while he watched a squirrel rummaging in the garden.

Gran looked as if she were waiting for more. Finally, she said, “Why, that’s wonderful! I don’t mind telling you I was becoming a mite concerned.”

Cayden tried not to shriek. “No, it’s not wonderful at all. It could hardly be worse. He’s been coming into the HandiMart at least twice a week for over a year. He never even noticed me until this morning.”

“You’ve noticed him, then?”

“Well, ye-ah. A woman would have to be dead not to notice Clint MacAllen.”

“Fine to your eyes and a good Scottish name to boot. I don’t see what you’re on about.”

“You’re not listening. Men like him don’t look twice at women like me. He didn’t listen to my advice about the stupid anchovies. He couldn’t even make himself take my hand. How can I possibly get him to—”

“Is he wearing the ring?”

Cayden shook her head. “He gave it back.”

“Gave it back? I can’t believe the Crossing would choose an idjit for a Keeper.” Gran sat up in her chair, then settled back in with a finger on her bottom lip. “He’s touched it, though. That’ll help. The magic won’t leave him be. How did you manage it if he didn’t notice you? I cannot imagine any man missing the sight of you.”

Gran leaned forward, watching her with pursed lips, while she told the tale of the HandiMart debacle, complete with the sidebar on the kamikaze breath mints.


AUTHOR BIO
 
Rhea Rhodan resides in Minnetonka, Minnesota and has been telling herself stories since long before she could write. She attended the University of Minnesota with a focus on Journalism, then Brown Institute for Broadcast Journalism. After many adventures, misadventures, and a couple of short marriages, she found the love of her life in Regensburg, Germany, and has been living happily ever after since.

She journaled those adventures extensively (some might say rabidly) beginning in middle school, but didn't combine her writing and story-telling until several years ago, when one of the stories grabbed her by the throat and shook her like a rag doll until she gave in and wrote it. Having tasted freedom, her muse refuses to return to the confines of her head, and has successfully turned the tables, keeping her at the keyboard to appease it.

Her stories always had a twist of magic or a touch of the paranormal. Why the romance? Because she believes in happy endings, and helping people imagine them helps them create the magic to find their own.

She welcomes feedback and fan mail :>). You can join her on Facebook and/or Goodreads, too. Rhea is always happy to meet new friends.

  6. I was just wondering if either of your books are related or have cross-over characters?

    1. My Work In Progress has characters from Finding Grace, but the two out now aren't related. The Legacy of Buchanan's Crossing is more contemporary romance/ with a twist of magic, while Finding Grace is more romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal.
