The Scent of Roses-- blog hop




The purpose of this blog hop is to promote award winning author Charlene Raddon’s latest release, The Scent of Roses, as well as the work of each of the participating bloggers. Be sure to read to the end of this page so you don’t miss out on the grand prize. Visit each blog and comment to qualify for the individual giveaways, and the big prize.

Charlene Raddon has been writing historical romance novels for over thirty years. Her work has won several awards and much well-deserved praise. Here is what she has to say about her newest release.
 

Any day when a new book is released is exciting for the author. I’m thrilled to announce that my eBook, The Scent of Roses, is now available.



The Scent of Roses is a sequel to my last eBook, To Have And To Hold, but stands alone and does not need to be read in order to be enjoyed. Whip Kincaid, from The Scent of Roses, is the half-brother of Buck Maddux from To Have and To Hold. Whip also has a twin, Cale, who readers met in Buck’s story, which gives me an excuse to write a third book for this series. 


The added touch of paranormal elements made The Scent of Roses a fun story to write. Who doesn’t enjoy haunted houses with hidden passageways? When I first moved to Utah, I lived in this house. No, there weren’t any secret passageways, but in every other way, my description of the old house is accurate. The third element new in this book is the subject of polygamy.


Rosalyn Delaney came to Whisky Ridge, Arizona expecting to receive aid from her estranged husband, Josiah Bullock, in escaping the crazed leader of a polygamist cult determined to have her. She’s broke and has nowhere else to go. But Josiah is dead, murdered the very evening of her arrival. The town is in uproar, searching for the suspected killer, Josiah’s business partner, Whip Kincaid. Rosalyn also learns that Josiah has taken a second wife. 


Whip is innocent but to prove that, he needs to stay out of jail. He hides in secret passageways in the old house he and Josiah shared. Smythely, the elderly butler who came with the house, is the only other person aware of the passageways. Lurking between spiderwebbed walls and using the abundance of peepholes provided allows Whip to keep up with what’s going on. Sneaking out at night allows him to investigate. He’s particularly interested in Rosalyn Delaney, and for more than one reason. Besides being attracted to her, he’s sure she knows something about the murder.


But does she? Is she safe at Rose House? Will she be safe from Whip Kincaid?

I hope you enjoyed this peek into The Scent of Roses. Find it here, at Amazon.com

I am happy that Charlene Raddon decided to do this blog hop and I was able to participate as it's been a learning experience for me as one more way for writers to show their work to new readers. Her book sounds like an interesting mix of romance and possibly supernatural. When I have time to sit down and read again, I have it on my list.

I love the premise of the book, especially the paranormal element.

Good evening ladies! Love the sound of both of your books and anything with that is western I love, if you add a little paranormal element to it I am finding out I enjoy that to. I am reading one now where the hero can predict the weather and it has been really good. I won this one on this blog hop. Its Texas Forged by Ciara Gold and let me tell you ladies this is an awesome book. Can't wait to read both or your books. Thanks for sharing!
