Spotlight New Release | A MAGIC REDEMPTION by Tena Stetler

Please welcome back my sister Rose (The Wild Rose Press) and friend, Tena Stetler! The Tavern is bustling with excitement over Tena's new release, A Magic Redemption! Grab a cup of honeyed mead and a gingersnap and let's hear what Tena has to say...

Good Morning Mary! I’m so happy to be here and visit with you about A Magic Redemption. Today is release day. Yippee!! I couldn’t be more excited.

A Magic Redemption has been in the process for quite some time. Synn the heroine of the book has wandered in and out of most of the books in A Demon’s Witch Series.

Kidnapped as a child, her captors murdered her family and forced her into training as a warrior assassin. When an assignment goes horribly wrong, she sees an escape and exchanges valuable information for protection and decides to give freedom a try in Ireland. What better place for a paranormal creature to start over than the land of myths and legends? But leaving her past behind is more difficult than she can imagine. When she inadvertently drags Gavin into her nightmares she realizes there may be no escape.

I always knew I’d have to tell Synn’s story, but had to wait until all the pieces fell into place from the other books in the series. To say this story was character driven is an understatement. She is such a spit fire there was never a dull moment as I did my best to document the tale as she revealed the events of her life. I’m super excited to share her incredible adventure and heart-warming story with you now. I certainly hope you’ll enjoy reading A Magic Redemption as much as I did writing Synn’s tale.

Although A Magic Redemption is the fifth book in A Demon's Witch Series, it can be read as a stand-alone like all the other books in the series.


Backcover blurb for A MAGIC REDEMPTION:

Synn, a demon, carries extraordinary magic and power, but there is more within her than she dreams. Kidnapped as a child, her captors murdered her family and forced her into training as a warrior assassin. When an assignment goes horribly wrong, she finds herself at the mercy of the friends and family of her intended target. Offering valuable information in exchange for protection, she gains her freedom, but it is not without its challenges.

Gavin Shaughnessy is the publican at his family’s Irish pub. He is certain Synn is meant to be his and isn’t bothered by her past. He must find a way to convince her, their future together is stronger than the dark memories that haunt her dreams.

When her past comes calling for revenge, will their love survive the raging inferno she brings down upon them? Or will the searing path of destruction destroy all they hold dear?

A Sneak Preview from A MAGIC REDEMPTION:

As she breathed in the crisp air and skipped along the beach, skirting the incoming waves and chasing them out. Her limp was barely noticeable. A calm replaced her restlessness. Is this what it’s like to be free? Make your own decisions, take action without permission? It’s nice, but lonely in a way.

Time seemed to go on forever as she slowed and walked backward for a while, her foot steps in the sand filling with water as she traveled along the shoreline, as if nature erased her intrusion. She turned around and continued her trek. Unaware of how long or how far she'd walked, the sudden outline of a figure, cloaked in the fog, jogging toward her caused panic to set in. Her heart pounded rapidly in her chest, she swallowed hard, adrenalin pumping through her veins as flight or fight response kicked in. Digging her good foot into the sand she prepared to attempt a sprint…to where. Where the hell am I? A quick glance around, she spied a light from a familiar building far off on the bluffs as the figure burst from the fog. A tall, wide-shouldered male with long muscular legs came closer. She froze.

Once lithe, strong and agile in her former life, a boss’s retaliation had taken a toll on her body. Now tired her gait was uneven and unsteady, even a slow sprint would likely end with her face planted in the sand.

About the Author:

Tena Stetler is a best-selling author of award winning paranormal romance. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends. After many years as a paralegal, then an IT Manager, she decided to live out her dream of pursuing a publishing career.

With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of witches, shapeshifters, demons, faeries, and gryphons, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling their tales. Her books tell stories of magical kick-ass women and mystical alpha males that dare to love them. Travel, adventure and a bit of mystery flourish in her books along with a few companion animals to round out the tales.

Colorado is home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-five-year-old box turtle. When she’s not writing, her time is spent kayaking, camping, hiking, biking or just relaxing in the great Colorado outdoors. During the winter you can find her curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn. Visit Tena’s website at where you’ll find links to all of her books, blog and pictures of recent travels and setting of her books.
