#NewRelease -- SNOW SOUNDS -- #Giveaway!

Three years ago, heartbroken nurse Melaine Landa found escape from her painful divorce in handsome Tanner Harris’s arms. Their one magical night is behind them, but the memories and feelings they experienced resurface when they come face-to-face again. Tanner heads the ski patrol, and Melaine has been hired to run the health clinic at a ski resort in California. But this job is important to Melaine for a reason she’s shared with no one else—her young step-daughter lives nearby. 

Melaine can’t look at Tanner without remembering the precious hours when he was her everything. Desire for this complex and sexy man still simmers inside a heart that is vulnerable, unwise, and reckless. 

Tanner is determined not to let his emotions get the best of him where Melaine is concerned. She’s said he didn’t understand—and he still doesn’t. Things seem more complicated now, and there’s even more at stake. 

But when the mountain rumbles and a deadly avalanche comes rushing down on them, everything changes. Love, living, and being together are all that matter, in these SNOW SOUNDS…

     The mountain waited. It could be patient for the blan-keting snows that turned Mammoth Lakes into a mecca for California's skiers. For tens of thousands of years, the seasons had played their songs on rock and trees and water and earth. Antlike people scurried about its base, putting last winter behind them and preparing for the next. Those who toiled to control the mountain might not have ageless perspective, but the mountain did. Long after these intruders left, the songs and seasons would continue.

     Although this wasn’t her first time here, Melaine Landa couldn’t imagine looking up at Mammoth without being touched by the mountain’s power. Until a few seconds ago, she’d been filled with awe and peace, the sense that she’d come home.
     But that was until the builder of the nearly completed first-aid clinic she stood in had said the one name she hoped she’d never hear again.
     Tanner Harris.

     Now, there was only the name. And the memories.

  1. Vella, your story sounds very intriguing. A mix of mystery and romance. Great to see this line of contemporary romance stories coming to Fire Star Press.

  2. Oh my, what a story you seem to have here. The twist and turns sound fascinating. All the best on this one. Doris McCraw

  3. When I lived in Omaha and worked at Nebraska Methodist Hospital, I met a nurse who used to ski for free because she carried an emergency pack on her back at all times. I can see where love would come alive on a mountain covered in snow.
    Vella. I wish you every success with your new release. Love the cover, too.

  4. I'm in the mood for a good ski story. This sounds like the perfect one! Congratulations and best of luck!

  5. Wow, I'll all over this one. Skiing, Mammoth, snow. Congratulations, Vella. The title itself is a winner. xo

  6. Vella, love the title, love the cover and I'm sure to love the story. Great excerpt. How can anyone read that and not to grab this book? I know I can't. And being a nurse for so many years, it appeals even more, plus the fact of being snowed in with me hunk--well..... Sounds like so much going on and I can't wait to see how this all resolves. Wishing you much success with this one.

  7. I need to clarify something here. Although Snow Sounds takes place at a ski resort (where I worked one incredible summer), the action doesn't revolve around snow. Lets just say there's a not so small matter of an earthquake--not hard to imagine because California is earthquake country.

  8. Okay, so you jacked up the excitement and suspense. Oh boy, I knew this was going to be a great one. Looking forward to this one for sure.

  9. I have not read your books but Catherine Anderson recommends you so here I am!
