Tena Stetler joins me today with a new release, MYSTIC MAPLES, part of the Deerbourne Inn series from The Wild Rose Press. Tena Stetler brings her love of the paranormal to the small Vermont town of Willow Springs. Let's find out a few things about MYSTIC MAPLES. Take it away, Tena!
Five Things you need to know about Mystic Maples and The Deerbourne Inn Series:
1. Mystic Maples – This story is named after Gypsy/Fae Silvanus Forrest's Sugar Maple grove at the edge of Willow Springs and has been in his family since the late 1750’s. The land is rumored to be enchanted.
2. Earth/Fire Witch Mercy Rose has lost the connect to her magic. She hopes a little R&R at The Deerbourne Inn is the answer, but when a handsome man and his dog enter her life things will never be the same.
3. The Deerbourne Inn series is set in a small fictional Vermont town, Willow Springs where anything can and does happen.
4. Thanksgiving spent with Mercy’s family in Colorado bring to a head simmering adolescent witch and magic problems.
5. Mystic Maples is a fun, feel good adventure of family, flowers, love, magic, and ghosts that you don’t want to miss.
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?
In the middle of the vardo an old weathered chest was completely out of place. She leaned over.
“Don’t touch that,” he barked. It was too late.
Her fingers stroked the rusted padlock. It sprang open. Puffs of dried soil sprinkled the carpet around the chest. He placed a restraining hand on her arm just as she tentatively dug her fingers into the soil.
“This isn’t from your land. It’s—.” A swirl of colors sucked them in and a feeling of weightlessness surrounded her. She grabbed hold of Sil’s arm. The dog yipped. Then suddenly they were back inside the wagon.
Only something was amiss, the silence, the earthy smell wasn’t right. She shivered. What have I done? Taking a deep breath, she whirled around to face Sil.
“What the hell just happened?”
He shrugged. “You promised not to touch a thing. Let’s get out of here.” Reaching for the vardo’s handle, he pushed down, and the door opened into a small barn. He strode to the door, tugging Mercy along with him. When he shoved it open moonlight spread across an open field casting silvery shadows through the bordering trees. Off in the distance stood a ramshackle cabin.
A warm breeze swept her hair across her face. She stared unblinking. Nothing about the landscape was familiar except the stands of young trees. She bent as if to touch the soil.
His arm flew out and prevented her from reaching the ground. “It’s true,” he murmured surveying the area. His lips set in a thin line, he rubbed his temples, and stared. Mocking her. “I won’t touch a thing. Well… you did and now…”
“Now what?” she whispered.
