Krystal Shannan Features - Magic Moment by Angela Adams #romance #suspense


Magic Moment
by Angela Adams


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When the FBI brings Laura Roberts - a quiet, reserved bookkeeper - in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job - only to be attacked by thugs.

Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together - and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.

Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth - before someone dies?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chase and Laura, traveling by his boat, are on the run from the men who kidnapped and tried to kill her.

“Hey, my sleepy first mate.” Chase grinned as Laura entered the wheelhouse.  
Dusk skimmed the sky. Having glided Madre into the marina, Chase aimed for an empty spot along the dock.  
“You slept all day. I thought you planned on sleeping all the way to the Chesapeake.”  He focused on maneuvering Madre between two set boats. 
“I did get up for a little while. You were asleep in the kitchen, so I went back to bed.”
“Galley,” he corrected.
“What galley?” 
“On a boat, it’s not a kitchen but a galley,” he replied with an easy smile. “If you’re gonna be a sailor, you have to know these things.”  
“Gotcha.” Her lips twitched and she returned his grin.  
She looked cozy wearing his sweats. The swelling around her eye area had eased, but the heavy bruises showed more profoundly. 
Physically, Chase had always thought Laura a knockout. She generally wore her blond hair loose and flowing.  Her green eyes kind of gleamed whenever she smiled. Their working environment was casual, yet Laura always wore a dress. Chase never seemed to mind. The woman had one fine set of legs and he had a hellva good time watching those limbs whenever she walked from her desk to the photocopier. They never talked much unless conversation was about the warehouse or the weather. Chase didn’t encourage otherwise. If he did, and decided her personality matched her looks, he might forget his rule about not dating women who worked for his father.

  3. Angela...You mention your "day job." What kind of work is it? Is it a job where you get a chance to write? Do your co-workers know that you're a writer? Have they read your current book? Just curious!

    1. My "day job" has little to do with writing. My co-workers don't know that I'm a writer, and aren't into the Romance Suspense genre. I'm so grateful that you are taking the time to follow the tour and comment. Thank you so much!
