When magic is unleashed, will what they learn bring them closer together or push them apart?

Prim and proper Trinity Shilo is the assistant manager for Salem's Wildlife Sanctuary. She hasn't had much luck in the boyfriend department, but the new employee Paul is different. Deep and brooding she sees something special hidden below the surface. Besides she has secrets of her own.

Paul Thorp is a wounded Special Forces veteran now working in security and computer support. He's fought hard to keep his demons in check and for the first time feels he is ready for a real relationship.

Get to know the Heroine – Trinity Shilo

Fire breaks out in Puffin Cove Wildlife Rescue, Trinity and Paul are called in from Salem Sanctuary to help in Tena Stetler’s new paranormal romance/mystery, Chocolate Raspberry Magic. When Magic is unleased, will it bring them closer together or push them apart?



Thank you for inviting Trinity Shilo from Chocolate Raspberry Magic, and me to your Tavern.


Oh, my pleasure. First things first, what genre is Chocolate Raspberry Magic?

 Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Great. I call this segment, Know the Heroine from Chocolate Raspberry Magic


I’ve got some fun questions to help us get to know you. Trinity, let’s get started.


It's late, you’re bored. What do you do? 

Curl up on the sofa with a good book in front of a roaring fire with a nice glass of wine. I’m not much of a party girl.


What kind of food would you impulse buy if hungry

Pizza is always my favorite go to food. Sometimes I make my own from scratch because I like a good whole-wheat crust. Other times, I’ll walk by a pizza place, go in and snag a piece or two.


Describe the kind of clothes you prefer to wear. 

Nice jeans, sweaters or t-shirts depending on the weather. I like to look nice even though my work environment can be extremely hard on clothes.


Do you know how to fix things?

My family frowned on my career choice. Their idea of fixing things, is call a repair person. I learned at a young age to depend on myself. The internet is my friend and being mechanically inclined doesn’t hurt either. If it needs to be fixed, I look up on the internet how to do it and get it done. Working for a rescue, there isn’t always money in the budget to hire someone to do it for you. Although, our maintenance man is good, he’s just not always available. 


Tell me when you tried to do something and it went badly.

The only thing I don’t attempt to fix is electricity. I learned the hard way that if you cross the wrong to wires, things (heaters, lamps, heat rocks) go boom and smolder. Yep electricity is best left to the professionals.


What are you like first thing in the morning?

I am the first to admit, I am not a morning person. Kinda consider myself allergic to mornings. But the world doesn’t run on my time schedule, so I adjust my night owl tendencies. 


How do you act around people who don't know what special talents you have?

Trinity’s head wipped around. Wait, how did you know? I keep my unusual talents to myself. Trinity sends a sideways glance to Tena. We’re going to talk after this.


Oh, no, sounds like I got you in trouble, Tena.

So what’s new. (Tena shrugs.)


Personal vehicle or public transport?

I have my own SUV. Never know when an emergency is going to send you to a new location.


Recycle or toss?

Recycle of course.


Anyone special in your life?

Maybe. Well yes, but my luck with men hasn’t been really good. So let’s just say I admire a co-worker and we’ll see how it goes. 



Thanks for stopping by Trinity!

Your turn Tena. Tell us a little about Chocolate Raspberry Magic.

 

Prim and proper Trinity Shiloh is the assistant manager for Salem's Wildlife Sanctuary. She hasn't had much luck in the boyfriend department, but the new employee Paul is different. Deep and brooding she sees something special hidden below the surface. Besides she has secrets of her own.

Paul Thorp is a wounded Special Forces veteran now working in security and computer support. He's fought hard to keep his demons in check and for the first time feels he is ready for a real relationship.

When a fire breaks out at Puffin Cove Rescue, they are called in to help with the recovery and ice cream social fundraiser. Sometimes things are not what they seem, and neither are people. When magic is unleashed, will what they learn bring them closer together or push them apart?

 Where in the world did you come up with that name?

LOL My publisher The Wild Rose Press had a call for submissions for One Scoop or Two Summer Ice Cream Series. So I put my two favorite flavors together and you always have to have magic. Besides, have you ever mixed in raspberries in chocolate ice cream. Tastes fantastic.

Okay, I’ll have to try it. How about a peek between the pages of Chocolate Raspberry Magic?


As Trinity walked through the aftermath of the fire, she lifted the yellow and black caution tape and carefully stepped inside the building. Her gut clenched and that feeling of foreboding washed over her again. The farther she ventured into the burnt building the stronger the gut-wrenching feeling became. Something needs my help. This was a new sensation. She took a small flashlight out of her backpack, directed the beam over the scorched debris, and moved the rubble with her toe. Nothing. 

One more sweep of the light and she’d return to the others. Probably not supposed to be here anyway. A weak squawk emanated from the far corner of the building. Picking up a scorched stick, she poked at the debris. A puff of smoke rose as she made her way to where the sound came from. Shining the light into the corner, she saw movement. She knelt down and carefully shifted the charred rubble. Laying on its side, head slightly raised, and using a wing in an attempt to right itself was a small parrot. Its little eyes locked on her for a moment before its head lowered to the ground. 

Frantically, she glanced around, but there was no one in sight. How far had she ventured without telling anyone? The structure overhead groaned in warning. No time. “Okay little one, it’s you and me. I don’t have much experience at this, but I’ll do my best.” Shrugging out of her backpack, she unzipped it completely. “I’m going to scoop you up in my backpack and get help.” She didn’t raise her voice to call for help for fear of scaring the poor thing.



“Now down to business.” Back at the table, Trinity went over everyone’s spreadsheets, made notes on hers, and asked for clarification on a few issues. “I think it’s time we adjourn to the Ice Cream Sundae, check out the venue, and reward ourselves. You do have chocolate raspberry ice cream?” 

“Of course, wouldn’t be an ice cream shop without it.” Patsy giggled. “ Bowl or waffle cone?”

“Waffle cone most definitely.”  Trinity licked her lips, tucked the paperwork into a folder, and slid it into her backpack. “Never know when I might need it.” 

  “Have we covered everything necessary up to this point? Gwen surveyed faces as each nodded. “Okay then, off to the ice cream shop.”

****

Paul pulled the SUV into the Ice Cream Sundae’s parking lot and cut the engine.

Trinity jumped out, turned in a full circle surveying the shared parking lot and the ice cream shop. “Looks like it may be a bit crowded to hold the fundraiser here.”

“Exactly what I was thinking. We should go inside and be sure. But this parking lot shared with the other merchants won’t do for any outside activities. Besides, don’t want to piss off any store owners if we take up the whole parking lot. Though, I imagine most of the town will be at the event.” Gwen opened the back door and Pepper climbed out.

“Hi Pepper.” Trinity turned her attention back to Gwen. “What ya thinking?” Trinity glanced at the vibrant pink and white striped catering truck from Ice Cream Sundae.

“Fireworks. A live Irish band for a few hours. That kind of thing.” Pepper waved her hand and laughed. “Weren’t asking me were you?”

“No. But I like your ideas.” Gwen glanced at Brock, “Could we have fireworks? Do we need a permit?”

“Don’t know. We can sure check.” He wrapped an arm around her and started toward the ice cream shop.

Pointing out the catering truck, Trinity took a few steps in that direction tugging Paul along. “If we move the fundraiser location to the cabin and its beach, there’d be plenty of room for the band, fireworks, and we could set up the catering truck at the side of the cabin. That way people would have access to both the front of the property and the back. Maybe set up a volleyball net and horseshoe pit.”


  

With the majestic Rocky Mountains just outside the window, I sit at my computer with vampires,demons, witches, faeries, and a variety of paranormal creatures gathered around telling me their stories! That makes me an author of paranormal romance novels and cozy mysteries with magic spark. The everyday world is mundane, but sprinkle a little magic and you have fantastic!

Colorado is home. I share my life with a wonderful husband of many moons, our brilliant Chow Chow, a terribly spoiled companion parrot, and a forty-year-old box turtle. We enjoy hiking, biking, and camping, also love water sports including kayaking and whitewater rafting, especially on the Arkansas River through the Royal Gorge.

Another passion of mine is reading a good novel. You can find me any winter evening curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate, and a big bowl of popcorn. While growing up, if I didn’t like the ending of a book, I’d rewrite it, which led to writing my own books.

Reluctantly, I discovered that in real life it’s tough to rewrite an ending.
