Valentine Countdown Blitz: SEE ME FOR ME by Teya Peck









Her most recent accomplishment started in the summer of 2015. Making her dad’s dream come true with publishing his works as well, as an emotional accomplishment. She is the 2016 local A.N.W.A. chapter (Snake River Writers) president, won NaNoWriMo and loves StoryMakers.
            Teya has been writing for as long as she can remember. At a young age she lived on a street she affectionately named Hill Street Blues, which helped her creative writing. Her Family moved to Menan where she continued her love of writing. Her father would always be and will continue to be her inspiration, even after his untimely death in 2006.
            She loves sitting in her soft chair next to the fireplace and watching out a big living room window. It gives her plenty of creative juice for stories.
            She met the love of her life in the loft of a barn. Yep, that set up some teasing from her father. They have been happily married since 2003. They have four children and all are loving and supportive of her writing.  Her oldest daughter is following in her footsteps as a writer adding her own illustrations. She refuses to comment on the trolls in the closets and under the beds. She is active in her church, has compassion for others, and a love for all life brings.

One wrong step changes Jocelyn’s Prima Ballerina’s life in one step...



A single choice results in Jeremiah facing unbearable consequences...



When these two meet, it could be catastrophic or the answer to unspoken prayers.

Can love be tested too far? Will hearts soften and hurts be forgiven?

Or will too much loss be too devastating to find hope?


One thing is for sure, lives are about to change forever…









Snippet:

Coming to a stop sign, Jeremiah glanced quickly left, then right, and stepped on the gas as he glanced at his sister. Strangely, she began to glow brighter. A fleeting thought came to him of why she might be illuminated. Emily started to turn her head right, and as she turned everything slowed down. Silence fill the space, not even the radio made a sound. He saw her eyes wide with fear and her mouth open as if in screaming, but no words. He felt his eyebrows crease together a second before he heard Emily scream, “Jer!” Then a deafening crunch, as he slammed against his door, and as his head careened toward the window. Metal twisting metal, and the shattering of glass could be heard. Just before his head smashed against the window knocking him out.

A makeup artist for the Phantom of the Opera with a tragic past. A mysterious man hiding a scar worse than the phantom from the Broadway show.



Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—the famous director of Phantom.

Why didn’t somebody ever tell her that marrying your director was a bad idea, especially when he has a wandering eye?

Desperate to get away after enduring several years of heartache and scars, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.

A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possess a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night for the theater.

But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down. 

When Anton helps Linden open up to the world around her, Linden wonders if the small town of Snow Valley might hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart.

If you like sweet romance and second chance love stories, then you’ll love THE SECRET OF A KISS, A Snow Valley Romance.

Snippet:

When she hit Montana, she texted her best friend, Anne. Hey, only two more days until I’m at your front door! Not sure what I want to do first. The top of the Space Needle or a day at the ocean.

          Anne texted back: Your first morning will be dropping my four-year-old Bethany at preschool, Baily at a sitter, then coffee with some friends I want you to meet. After that, we’ll take a drive along the ocean.
          Sounds great! Linden texted back.

          Ten days suddenly sounded like a lot of time to intrude on Anne and her family. Maybe a long weekend would have been more realistic. Her husband was sure to privately complain, counting the days until Linden was gone. 

          Picking up her phone again, Linden texted: If I arrive a couple days later than originally scheduled, will that ruin your plans? I’m enjoying life on the road more than I thought.

          Anne: Did an alien abduct the real Linden? No worries, I don’t have any specific plans. We can always get tickets for the ballet after you get here. I have a babysitter on call.

          Linden sent off a smiley face to Anne, dropped her cell phone to the empty seat next to her, and lifted her eyes back to the road. At the same moment, an enormous shadow loomed across both lanes of the highway.

“Ah!” She screamed, jerking at the wheel, terrified she was about to hit someone.

          There was a grinding noise as the car hit the rumble edge of the highway. A pair of antlers caught in her headlights and then a shadow leaped off to the left.

Linden tried to bring the car back onto the road, but she was going too fast, the jutted ridges of the highway making her car fish-tail uncontrollably. Before she could blink her eyes again, the car was jouncing down into a ravine while she banged her head against the ceiling of the vehicle.

Pumping the brakes didn’t help to stop the runaway car. She’d never felt so out of control in her life, waiting to land somewhere. A lake? Hanging off a cliff edge?

A moment later, the Nissan hit a bank of scrub brush and shuddered to a stop. Steam poured from the hood. Sounds of hissing came from the front end of the vehicle. Something was definitely damaged. Her rental car wasn’t going anywhere tonight. She was stuck in the middle of nowhere with a damaged car, no flashlight, and wild animals lurking just outside her windshield. She was so in trouble.

"After watching her parents’ marriage crash and burn, CIA operative Talia Reynolds doesn’t believe in “happily ever afters.” Besides, her job entails eighty-hour weeks, juggling a dozen covers and disguises, and tracking down a dangerous Russian spy ring. She hardly has time for romantic entanglements, even if she could let her guard down enough to get close to anyone. But all the rules she lives by could be broken when she meets aerospace engineer Danny Fluker.

Danny moved to Canada for a great job — and a chance to start over after a bad breakup. Dating definitely isn’t in his plans . . . until beautiful and enigmatic Talia throws a perfect storm right in his flight path. When he catches a glimpse of the real woman behind her fa├žade, he has to get to know her better.

Talia has to find a Russian spymaster before he figures out she’s not who she claims, and failing to keep her two lives separate in the process could mean the death of more than just her budding relationship. Danny has to decide if a future with Talia — and facing the past — is worth the risk of getting hurt again. If they can break through the barriers keeping them apart (and avoid a major international catastrophe), they just might have a chance at being happy together."

Snippet:

What would I like to have happen next? Duh, I want him to kiss me, but I want more than that. I want to date him without worrying, without my baggage, without pressure. I just want to be in that moment, kiss him, love him, be with him, not worrying about all the moments to come. I want to close my eyes for his kiss and never have to open them again.


I want the impossible.

Snippet:

James climbed up through the sail of Scottsdale, emerging into daylight. The salty air filled his lungs as he looked towards the looming shoreline. For the first time in a long while, the regret at the end of a voyage in his beloved boat was alleviated by what he knew was waiting for him on shore.


Nell. Her green eyes and flaming hair had haunted him during those quiet times spent in his stateroom. Her smile had greeted him from the photo he had stuck to the wall next to his pillow, warming his heart every time he looked at it. For the first time in his life he had a love that rivalled his passion for the Navy.

Seeing the future is a curse that Abigail Weston has carried her entire life. Knowing how and when someone will be hurt, or the whereabouts of missing people, haunts her enough to move away from the town that no longer trusts her.

When real estate developer Carson Stone meets the intuitive Abigail, he can't help but feel the connection to her and wonder if love at first sight is possible, especially since they share a passion for old buildings. She believes they all should remain, while he builds new ones in their place.

No matter Abigail's feelings for Carson, knowing that their future is to be together does not ensure them a happily ever after, especially if she can't figure out what the other side is trying to show her--because in her visions Carson's future is dark and cold.





  

Snippet:
"If he weren't a tyrant who tore down old buildings, you'd be head over heels in love with him already, wouldn't you?"

Abigail wasn't even going to consider an answer to that, let alone give it any thought. Because unfortunately, she was sure her cousin was correct.
