Guest Post: Mountain Blaze by Debby Grahl

My guest today is Debby Grahl and she is talking about her new release: Mountain Blaze


Tell us a little about yourself:

My husband David and I live on Hilton Head Island, SC. I love the water so we spend time sitting and walking on the beach. I also enjoy horseback riding, traveling, shopping for shoes, going out to lunch with girlfriends, getting together with family and friends, decorating for Christmas, red wine, and chocolate. I like to read old British murder mysteries and romance novels.

What do like the most and the least about writing? 

I love plotting the story, creating my characters, and the incredible feeling I get when a reader tells me how much they enjoyed my book. I don’t like marketing at all! I’m not good at it, and it takes up time when I’d rather be writing. I tell people I’d rather be forced to eat mushrooms than do marketing.

Give us a peek into your latest published work? 

Disillusioned by his wife’s betrayal, rodeo star Dillon McCoy comes home to the mountains of North Carolina to lick his wounds. When he agrees to take over the family ranch, the Lazy M, he’s unaware danger waits.

Diana Thompson is having doubts about her engagement to Trent Sawyer. She agrees to leave Chapel Hill and spend Thanksgiving with her friend Jenn at the Lazy M. When Diana and Dillon meet, neither can deny their attraction, but both must resolve past relationships while fighting their growing desire. 

After Dillon turns down an anonymous offer to purchase the ranch, attempts are made on his life. When a body is found, Dillon sets out to discover who wants the McCoy land enough to commit murder.

What’s next on the writing horizon for you? 

I’m working on Island Heat which is next in my Carolina series and is set on Hilton Head Island. The third will take place in Charleston, SC. I have the plot and the characters, but I’m having trouble with the title.

Is there anything you want to tell readers?

 I’d like to tell them how much I appreciate their taking the time to read my books and give me reviews. 


Dillon smiled and Diana thought it the sexiest smile she’d ever seen. There was a slight cleft in his chin, and fine lines formed at the corners of his eyes. Diana inwardly groaned. The butterflies were back.

“I’d hold onto you. I wouldn’t let you fall,” he softly said.

With his slow southern accent, the words sounded like warm honey rolling off his tongue. The depth of his eyes and the sound of his voice mesmerized her.

The horses stood side by side. Her and Dillon’s legs touched. He leaned toward her, and the light aroma of wood smoke, hay, and his spicy cologne filled her nostrils. Diana knew what he was about to do but had no willpower to stop him. He cupped her cheek and their lips met.

Gentle at first, his lips glided over hers. He increased the pressure until she opened her mouth and his tongue slipped in. Diana moaned and wrapped her arms around his neck. His arms around her waist, he deepened the kiss. Before she realized what he was doing, without breaking their kiss Dillon lifted her from Flora and placed her across his lap.

Cradled in his arms, Diana clung to him, delicious sensations filling her. Her body came alive in a way that surprised her. The only thing that mattered was this man and this moment.

Flame moved, bringing her back to reality. Diana’s eyes fluttered open, and she stared into Dillon’s, deep with passion and need.
