Today I have the honor of shining the spotlight on author Stormy Smith and her novel BOUND BY DUTY. Not only do I get to tell you all about the book, but I also had the chance to toss her a few This or That! Questions and ask her about her characters! Without further ado, awaaaaaaaaay we go!
Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name.
Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become.
As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?
Stormy Smith calls Iowa’s capital home now, but was raised in a tiny town in the Southeast corner of the state. She grew to love books honestly, having a mom that read voraciously and instilled that same love in her. She knew quickly that stories of fantasy were her favorite, and even as an adult gravitates toward paranormal stories in any form.
Writing a book had never been an aspiration, but suddenly the story was there and couldn’t be stopped. When she isn’t working on, or thinking about, her books, Stormy’s favorite places include bar patios, live music shows, her yoga mat or anywhere she can relax with her husband or girlfriends.
And here is Stormy Smith, everyone!
Thank you SO much for stopping by today, Stormy! I cannot wait to read BOUND BY DUTY!
And Stormy even gave us an excerpt...just to bait that hook! *grins at you* I'll be reviewing BOUND BY DUTY in a few weeks, so stay tuned, but in the meantime, enjoy this excerpt!
