Meet the Authors, Take 4
The TEAL Signed Book Giveaway is underway, and each week, we’re highlighting a few of the authors who have contributed to our fantastic promotion! This week, meet Indie Authors Darlene Deluca, J.A. Dennam, and Karin Reeve.
Many times, the best new authors come by way of recommendation from a friend or fellow reader. So allow me to highly recommend the following women, whose genres range from romantic suspense, to women's fiction and young adult fantasy.
Darlene Deluca holds a degree in Journalism, and has a vast store of writing material from parenting two children and working for twenty-plus years in Corporate America before turning to fiction writing. She tolerates living in the Midwest (that’s where the fam is), but when the temperature plummets and the ground turns white, she often longs for a distant sunny beach. Lover of books, tea, dark chocolate and sunshine!
Meetings of Chance

While dealing with a grieving father, single-handedly running the family’s floral business and trying to re-shape her own career, she’s suddenly confronted with a troublesome new neighbor and an explosive secret from her mother’s past. She can’t tell her father, and her sister refuses to believe, so Megan presses on alone, forced to carry a secret she didn’t even want to know. Determined to uncover the truth, she finds herself turning to a man she’s not sure she can trust. Tom Blake has fled his city life to escape the publicity of a high-profile divorce. Planning to lie low, he has no intention of being drawn into someone else’s family angst. But he runs into more than he bargained for when he meets his new neighbors. In an unexpected turn of events, he finds himself thrust into the role of confidante and on the last path he wanted to travel – a path that threatens his plans for the future.
J.A. Dennam, an award winning author and member of Romance Writers of America, resides in a small Kansas town with her husband and four children. She shares many passions for the arts including fine arts, culinary arts, motorcycling and music.
Flesh of Angels
Tucked away in the warm solitude of her mountain cabin, Holly welcomes the lingering chill of spring as a peaceful addition to her own private paradise. Little does she know it is no more than a cloak, disguising hidden dangers that threaten to tarnish the pristine innocence only nature can provide. With the arrival of a compelling yet unwelcome guest, Holly’s world is about to become prey to an evil force that has been thriving in the very woods in which she lives.
Required to follow up on an unlikely lead, INS Special Agent Dodge enters Holly’s paradise with little patience and no desire to be played by the deceptive witch. However, a devastating turn of events pushes the reluctant pair to band together in order to expose the existence of a deadly smuggling ring that has plagued the Northern Rockies for decades. Caught in a labyrinth of danger, Holly and Dodge ultimately surrender to their undeniable attraction for one another; however, the comfort they find in each other’s arms is tarnished by deception…as well as the threat of dark secrets that may lie as close as the person lying next to them.
Karin Reeve loved stories as a child. Reading, writing, or listening to one be told. She could spend hours dreaming up a variety of colorful characters and their many adventures. As life often goes, Karin found herself busy with her family and work, and had to put aside her childhood pleasures. This remained true until a few years ago when she could no longer live without a creative outlet. She sat down in front of her computer and began writing and has not looked back since.
