SEPTEMBER, 2018 IMAGINE THE KISS By: Laura Haley-McNeil The Plot: Violinist Teagan Whitloch Mun- roe escapes into her music and the solace she finds at the Crystal Creek Ranch. Practicing in the woods helps her piece together her life, but she isn‟t alone. Someone hikes nearby. Renowned architect Phineas St. Cyr protects the world from his dis- figurement by sequestering himself in the woods on the Crystal Creek Ranch but can‟t resist Teagan‟s music. Teagan finds sanctuary in Phin‟s friendship but soon realizes he hides more than his scars. They are caught in a web of deceit by someone threatening to reveal Phin‟s secrets. His exposed past endangers Teagan, and he can no longer walk away. This time he must face the enemy deter- mined to defeat him. He‟ll fight to the finish to protect the woman he can never love. No price is too high to keep buried the secret that will mark Teagan for destruction. An Excerpt Teagan Whitloch Munroe was trembling. She was trem- bling, and she couldn‟t stop. She‟d been trembling for more than two hours—since she‟d left the downtown Denver condo- minium she shared with her husband, Dr. Wilbert Munroe. What she‟d seen inside the condo—in their bedroom—made her want to vomit. A cold knot of disgust and revulsion gripped her stomach. When she‟d walked into the master bedroom, she must‟ve gasped. Will was lying on the bed, but he wasn‟t alone. He‟d lifted his head from the pillow. He‟d looked right at her. And swore. He hadn‟t looked surprised. He‟d looked annoyed. She‟d pressed a hand over her mouth. Blinded by tears, she‟d backed into the doorjamb and stum- bled into the hallway. She didn‟t remember running out of the condo, but she must have. Her legs throbbed, and her chest ached. The only thing she remembered was her husband calling her name. Reviews Welcome.
