Flood by Elaine Cantrell (VET, spotlight, and GIVEAWAY) GFT

by Elaine Cantrell


GENRE: Contemporary Romantic Suspense



Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria DeLuca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life.

When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.



Exclusive Exceprt:

As the waiter left, both he and Aria reached for a fry at the same time. Their fingers brushed together. An arc of fire shot through his entire body and set him to burning. He had to remind himself to breathe. Frozen by the fire, he couldn’t move his hand. Aria didn’t try to move her hand either. Had the fire burned her too? Her face had flushed, and her eyes glittered like two brown stars.

With a sharp intake of breath, she pulled away and shoved the fries toward him. “You take them.” 

He forced himself to move. Taking a couple of fries, he dropped them on his waxed paper and fumbled for some ketchup. Chancing a peek at Aria who was doing everything she could not to look at him, he lost his breath again. His heart hammered in his throat. “Uh, I’ll…I’ll take them home if you don’t wa…want them.”

  2. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and, if so, how do you overcome it?

    1. I think most authors do suffer from writer's block at one time or another. When i get into a slump, I just keep writing. Most of the writing will have to be heavily edited, but as I continue to write I feel my creativity coming back.
