 Excerpt:
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.

Yes, sir?”

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.

Review

I always think that novella's are the hardest stories to write. You really have to pack a huge amount of believable story line into a very small word count. Sometimes the stories suffer because of that. I'm happy to say that that's not the fact with "The Devil's Bond." It packs full book appeal. I found the story to be well written, with enjoyable characters. I was able to fly right though it due to the fact that it was so good. The relationship between both Annaliese and Garrett is so sweet. They fall in love so quickly, but refuse to rush it. Garrett is so supportive with Annaliese when she needs him to be. Annaliese right away can tell what a good, caring man Garrett is. I do wish I had a little bit more of their back story, but not having it didn't distract from the story. A nice, sweet read! Happy reading!
