Book Tour Of The Accidental Affair By Leslie McKelvey


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

Synopsis:

Jack Vaughn is sure his life is over as he tumbles down the wooded hillside onto the deserted two-lane stretch of asphalt. Years of work ended with a single gunshot. Yet, it’s not over. 

A good Samaritan stops to help him, despite the danger he poses to her

Laine Wheeler knows better than to stop for strangers on the rural Montana highway near her home, but her conscience won’t allow her to leave an injured man behind. 

What she doesn’t know is the man is an undercover ATF agent tasked with infiltrating a domestic terrorist group. His cover has been blown and helping him will put her life in danger.

Though there is an instant attraction, Jack knows that beginning a romantic relationship with Laine would be both unfair and unwise. Yet the farther they run, the harder it gets to ignore the feelings

that are surging between them.

Excerpt



“Nice place, Evergreen Springs,” said a distinctly male, distinctly unfamiliar voice from the backseat. “At least, it seems so.”

Laine jumped and slammed on the brakes as a huge man appeared behind her in the rearview. He scowled as he was jolted against the back of her seat, and her eyes were immediately drawn to the pistol in his hand. It looked familiar, and so did the silencer, but this was a .45 and not a 9mm. Bigger guy, bigger gun. He rested the barrel on her shoulder and rubbed the muzzle against the side of her neck. “Whoa there, pretty lady, calm down. Let’s not get carried away.”

He looked like a younger, stronger version of Mr. Clean, except for the earring. The stranger didn’t have one. He also wasn’t wearing Mr. Clean’s beguiling smile.

“What do you want?” she asked, though she had a sinking feeling she knew the answer.

“We’ll discuss that as we go,” he said with a leering smile. “Hell, if I’d known you were some pretty woman doctor, I’d have volunteered for this job.” He licked his lips and rubbed her neck again with the gun. “Now, drive.”

“Where to?”

He gave her a look that said she should know where.

“Home,” she said.

He grinned, though it did nothing to make him more appealing. It was a serpent’s grin, and a shiver went down her spine.

“You reading my mind, pretty lady? Better not do that. You won’t like what you find.”

Author Bio:

Leslie McKelvey has been writing since she learned to write, and her mother still stores boxes of handwritten stories in the attic.  Leslie read her first romance at 12 and was hooked.  When her high school Creative Writing teacher told her she needed to be a novelist, she decided to give it a try.  Finally, at the ripe old age of...forty-something...her debut novel, Accidental Affair, made it into print through Black Velvet Seductions Publishing.  The publisher has also contracted two more manuscripts, which will follow Accidental Affair shortly.

Leslie is a war-veteran who served with the U.S. Navy during the Gulf War, and she was among the first groups of women to work the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.  During her five years tour she was stationed at NAS Miramar and was an F-14 Tomcat mechanic and plane captain.  While in San Diego she spent time on the carriers USS  Independence, USS Ranger, USS Lincoln, and the USS Nimitz.  The final two years of her enlistment were spent on Guam and her squadron frequently deployed to Japan and the Middle East.

She learned everything she knows about firearms and tactics from her police officer husband, who is a weapons expert, range master, and firearms instructor for one of the most highly-respected law-enforcement agencies in the world (and one he wishes her NOT to disclose).  He is her biggest supporter and her unpaid consultant on everything law-enforcement and weapons related.  She has three boys who keep her very busy and contribute daily to her growing number of gray hairs.  Her oldest son is a United States Marine and the younger two have vowed to follow in their brother’s footsteps (OOH RAH!).  She spends her off-time (kidding...WHAT off-time?) reading, taking pictures, and sending lead down range (that's shooting, for those who are unfamiliar). One of her favorite scents is the smell of gunpowder in the morning....
