Excerpt Tour: Legacy Under Fire by Genie Gabriel + Giveaway!

VBT Legacy Under Fire Banner

This post is part of a Virtual Book Tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Genie Gabriel will award a $10 Powell’s GC at every stop and a $25 Amazon GC at the end of her tour to one randomly drawn commenter.

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?

Shiloh stood in the sunshine trying to envision a medical clinic instead of the sagebrush and sun-dried grass. Yet all that formed in her mind were flames greedily consuming everything she had worked so hard to build.
“What do you think?” Jeremiah asked.

Shiloh forced a smile before she turned to face Jer. “It’s hard to imagine a building on bare land.”

“Maybe it’s too soon.”

Something akin to panic wiggled in Shiloh’s belly. “No. I want to do this. I need to move forward.”

“Do you have a building layout in mind or know how you want the exterior to look? We can take some photos of the land and then add a building and landscaping on the computer.”

“Good idea.” Shiloh nodded her head. Maybe her belly wouldn’t churn with fear by looking at a computer mock-up. But how was she ever going to remember what happened the day her clinic burned if she continued to hide behind the fear?

She forced herself to lift the camera and look at the viewfinder. The mountains in the distance brought some measure of calm. If she could focus on the mountains carpeted purple-green with trees topped by a dollop of white snow at the top…

Instead of the burned-out remains of her clinic.

GenieGabrielPhotoFor 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.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    LIke the new LASR layout a lot (first time I’ve seen the site in a week or two), and the excerpt looks great! I’ve been running around all over today and just got in, so Monday stories are escaping me right now…

    • LOL, Elizabeth! I had one of those running around kind of days a few days ago. Felt like I got a lot done–until I got home and found more “stuff” to do. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Having the LASR blog on a Monday is great. They are one of the largest out here. Congrats on your release and I hope the rest of your tour goes magnificently.

  5. And the winner is…Ashyln!

    I’ll be sending you an e-mail about your gift card! And the names of all commenters will go in the drawing for the prize at the end of the month.

    Thank you!

  6. Mary Preston says:

    How much input did you have for the cover I wonder? I feel it gives me such a great sense of the story.


    • Hi, Mary! I am one of the lucky authors who not only has a whole lot of input on covers, I design my own. The drawback to that is I also have the tendency to pick at them and want to redesign them every so often. LOL!

      Thanks so much stopping by! I’ll add your name to the hat for my monthly drawing!

  7. Great a story with a fire fighter, strangely enough I haven’t read a lot stories featuring a fire fighter.

  8. I’m going to give this one a chance and put in on my reading list.


  9. Karen H in NC says:

    Sorry for the late post. I’m playing catch-up here so I’m just popping in to say HI and sorry I missed visiting with you on party day! Hope you all had a good time!

  10. Anastasia says:

    Did you always want to become a writer?


    • Hi, Anastasia! I’m amazed at people who know what they want to be from the time they were little kids. Too many things fascinate me to settle into one “career.”

      Though writing has been my focus for a few years, I’ve also continued to do graphic design, learned Reiki energy healing, and am an animal lover who has willingly turned control of my life over to my doggie herd. Whenever possible, I combine all my passions. So you’ll see animals and miracles in my books, and I also design my own covers.

  11. Chelsea B. says:

  12. Sorry to be so late to the tour. Sounds like a great read.

  14. Following the comments of all readers in all your tour stops and replying back is a great thing..thanks for such response to your audience!

    • Hi, Vidya! Besides the fact I love chatting with everyone, I so much appreciate the fact commenters take the time to read about my books and leave a comment. One of those win-win situations for everyone! Thank you for your kind words and for stopping by!
