Focus on: Tena Stetler

From Tena Stetler, best-selling author of A DEMON'S WITCH, comes the second in Demon's Witch Series, A WARLOCK'S SECRETS  blending the magical and the real…

Welcome to Wild Women Authors, Tena.
Thank you! I’m excited to be here. I love reading your blog.

Tell us what inspired A Warlock’s Secrets?
     A Warlock’s Secrets was not a planned book in the Demon’s Witch series. It was originally a three or four books series. After publishing the first book in the series, A Demon’s Witch, many readers and reviewers wanted or assumed that Tristian’s story would be next. So I listened to my readers and wrote A Warlock’s Secrets before submitting rest of the books in the series. The hardest part of writing this book was wrapping my head around who Tristian really was and what he really wanted out of life.
     The underlying message is Tristian has a strong moral compasses even though he works as the Demon Overlord’s Enforcer/Assassin. He basically is the paranormal police for the Western Hemisphere. Enforcement is necessary to keep a balance between mortals and creatures which he learned young due to the death of his parents and having to raise his little sister.
     Hannah is a strong, smart woman in cyber security and doesn’t take Tristian’s crap. He likes the challenge and her strong personality. But in his darkest hours she is dragged into his magical world. If they survive, is she strong enough to heal his heart and tame the warlock? Or will their secrets destroy them? 

Why do you write romance?
     I can’t tell you how many times I been asked the question. It’s because I like the happily ever after aspect. I want to whisk my readers away from their everyday lives and problems into an extraordinary world filled with magic.
     For me crafting a romance is all about RESPECT, TRUST and LOVE. Only most of my characters are of the paranormal persuasion. I want to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure.  Characters that will grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh.

Let’s take a look into the world of A Warlock’s Secrets.
     Years ago, a sacred ceremony at the Dragon’s Moon Coven turned deadly. Son of the high priestess, Tristian Shandie’s life changed forever. With a price on his head and revenge in his heart, he has no choice but to follow in his father’s footsteps to a profession shrouded in secrets. Now his skills as an enforcer for the Demon Overlord are second to none. But dangerous secrets he harbors are a liability he can no longer afford.
     A chance meeting with a woman he finds irresistible flips Tristian’s world upside down. Hannah is a cyber security specialist with secrets of her own. Bad boys never appealed to her until Tristian, who changes everything. In his darkest hours, she is dragged into his magical world.
If they survive, is she strong enough to heal his heart and tame the warlock? Or will their secrets destroy them?

Can we have a sneak peek between the pages of A Warlock’s Secrets?
My pleasure.

Inside the house, a shadow passed by the huge bay window. She held her breath. Am I really going to go through with this?
Walking up the steps to the house, she paused. Why would he leave such an expensive car sitting out when he had a four-car garage? She was stalling. Straightening her shoulder's she used the brass doorknocker. There was no answer. She knocked again.
The heavy oak door creaked open. Tristian stood shirtless, his abs rippled as he raised one muscular arm to lean on the doorframe. The skintight blue jeans hung low on his hips and his hair tousled as if he'd not been awake long.
When he stared at her, with those huge blue-gray eyes, tingles careened up her spine. She covered her mouth in case drool pooled in the corners her mouth. He was one sexy male. She sucked in a breath and opened her mouth to speak but nothing came out. A brow arched, he peered questioningly at her then twisted to glance backward into the house. The sunlight streaming through the doorway accentuated several scars across his chest, rib area and a healed slash across his back.      Who gets those kinds of battle scars and lives to tell the tale? Not going to ask. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all.
     The corner of his mouth curved up in an inviting sexy-as-hell grin. "Good morning, Hannah. What a  surprise.
