PLAYING THE ANGLES

The first Coventina Circle Paranormal Romantic Suspense Novel

Witchcraft, politics, and theatre collide as Morag D’Anneville and Secret Service agent Simon Keane fight to protect the Vice President of the United States -- or is it Morag who needs Simon’s protection more than the VP?

Witch and theatre professional Morag D’Anneville is annoyed when she’s assigned to dress the conservative Vice President as he makes a surprise appearance in his favorite Broadway show. Even more irritating, she has to teach Agent Simon Keane, part of the security detail, the backstage ropes in preparation. A strong attraction flares between them which they both recognize is doomed, and Simon must also fight his superior’s prejudice that Morag’s beliefs make her a threat to the Vice President. When Morag is attacked, Simon’s loyalties are torn between protecting the man he’s sworn to protect, and protecting the woman he loves.

Excerpt:

Simon’s mouth twitched. “At least you think I’m worthy guardian
material.”

“You know I do. You save my life and I—I—” She stopped.

“Yes?” Simon stared at her, interested.

“I can’t talk about this right now.” She stepped back.

“You’re not going alone.”

“The man who tried to kill me is dead.”

“That doesn’t mean there won’t be more.”

Morag shivered. “You’re not just saying that, are you?” She stared into his eyes and knew he wasn’t trying to scare her.

“Until we know more about him, we won’t know. We won’t know if
he’s working with Carl Douglas or if this is connected to the Vice President.”

“Great. Now I have to worry about someone jumping out from
behind every tree, parked car, and garbage can.”

Simon pulled her into his arms. “That’s why you’ve got me.”

"The Ramsey Chase"-- A Remarkable Adventure of Cornelia True and Roman Gray by Devon Ellington

Miss Cornelia True lives in Bodwin's Ferry, a small seacoast town, with her sisters Arabella and Viola. Her life changes forever when Roman Gray, a "fixer" from the future and across the seas from the metropolis of Newest Yorkke, lands, naked, amongst Cornelia's petunias due to a glitch in his Device. Together, they embark on a series of remarkable adventures. In "The Ramsey Chase", Roman arrives hunting a time-travelling serial killer who preys on young women for their blood.

Excerpt:

Roman Gray kept his eyes squeezed shut, ignoring the breeze that played against his bare skin. Against all logic, he hoped that if he refused to open his eyes, he would discover this was only a glitch caused by the Device, and, in a moment, he would find himself in the correct time and space. Preferably fully clothed.


“My dear sir, if you are going to drop, naked as the day you were born, into my prize petunias, you can at least introduce yourself.”

Roman sighed, opening one green eye and then the other. This wasn’t a glitch or hallucination. He was lying, curled up in a fetal position, in the midst of a flowerbed, with a woman leaning over him. Her cadence was formal, but her face was smooth and unlined, framed by long, wavy golden hair, and he realized this was an example of the much-raved about “cornflower blue” eyes. For a moment he forgot that he was lying naked in a flowerbed, trying to pursue a murderer.

“Sir? Are you ill?”

“Uh, no.” He shook his own hair, thick and black, a bit longer than regulation, which would have brushed his collar, had he worn anything, at the moment, with a collar. He sat up, wondering how to appear modest, and gave up. “My name is Roman Gray, and my Device’s gone wonky.”

“Well, that’s unfortunate, isn’t it?” The woman slipped a pale green shawl from around her shoulders and held it out to him. “Perhaps you would like to cover yourself for the walk to the house, just in case the neighbors aren’t minding their own business? They do seem to find other people’s business far more interesting than their own. Once we are inside, we’ll get this sorted out.” She smiled at him. “Don’t worry, you shan’t shock me. I studied the male anatomy in life drawing class. And I do have a brother.”
