Legacy Under Fire by Genie Gabriel Excerpt and Giveaway!

Brought to you by Goddess Fish Promotions...

I'm thrilled to present the release of Genie Gabriel's newest installment of the Legacy series. Read on to reveal a very special excerpt and enter an awesome giveaway! (Pssst! There are two gift cards involved!!!!)

After being trapped in an arson fire that destroyed her clinic and her memory, a doctor struggles to regain her courage as well as solve the mystery of why someone would want to kill her. A different kind of heat fills her life when she falls in love with the firefighter who rescued her, but can he protect her from the man determined to snuff out her life?

Super-mom Tallie O'Shea took on eight adopted children and built a legacy of compassionate justice with her policeman husband. When he is gunned down, she doesn't think it's an accident. Then a former lover shows up and the lies from her past start unraveling. As dangers explode around her, can Tallie set things right before everything she loves is destroyed?

Jeremiah looked across Celestial Creek toward the doctor's clinic, hoping to see a slender figure moving this direction.

What he saw instead was smoke billowing out an upper window. The building wasn't part of those destroyed in the explosions on this side of the creek, yet it certainly seemed to be on fire.

Jeremiah started walking rapidly toward the building, then broke into a run, as he shouted into the radio wired to his helmet. "Fire at the doctor's clinic on the east side of Celestial Creek."

A muffled curse answered him, followed by a pause, and the order to one of the engines to hit the other side of town. Jeremiah pounded across the bridge at a run, focused on Shiloh's clinic.

The redirected engine arrived at the same time Jeremiah did. Flames shimmered menacingly through the glass doors in the front of the building, so Jeremiah trotted around to the side. Usually unlocked during business hours, the side door seemed jammed shut. Using a crowbar, he pried it open. While his partner directed a hose line on the flames, Jeremiah dropped low and scanned under the smoke for any sign of the doctor.

He found Shiloh by the window, unconscious. A knot swelled at the back of her head, and her skin was red from the heat, but she was breathing.

"The whole building is about to collapse." The message came over Jeremiah's headphones.

Praying Shiloh didn't have severe neck or spinal injuries, Jer lifted her into his arms and exited the building. His partner backed out behind him, spraying water that quickly turned to steam in the fire intent on consuming the doctor's clinic.

About the Author

For years I've been fascinated by the puzzle of why some people collapse under life's traumas and others emerge triumphantly stronger. These triumphs of the human spirit over the ugliest of adversities became the basis for my stories. Yet my dramatic stories have always contained touches of humor, and sometimes I have great fun writing romantic comedy novellas. However, in all my stories, my passion for writing romance is an outlet for the powerful messages that people can overcome great difficulties, and true love can turn life’s heartaches into happily ever after.


Thanks to the author and Goddess Fish Promotions, there is one $10 Powell's Bookstore gift card up for grabs! To enter, all you have to do comment on this post telling us about your happily ever after... or if you aren't there yet, tell us about a time love made you happy :) I don't believe happily ever after is something that you can achieve until, well, you die LOL. But love has made me pretty happy, and it still does. Over Thanksgiving break, my ex-boyfriend (who I only broke up with when I moved to Korea last year) paid me a surprise visit! Twists the meaning of "ex", doesn't it? ;) It made me happier than anything, and reminded me that true love really can conquer everything else.

In addition, a $25 Amazon gift card will be awarded as a grand prize to one randomly selected commenter on this entire tour. Be sure to leave your email address in all your comments!

Goddess Fish and the author will select the winners of both giveaways.
