Please join me in welcoming the babelicious Barbara Chioffi. This former teacher has decided to explore her more sensual side with hot romance novels such as Angel Mine, Lycan’s Love, and Trickery. And as a fabulous supporter of other authors via Authors-Professionals Co-op, Mrs. Chioffi is definitive someone you want to get to know.

Author Bio:

I am 73, a retired music teacher, living in Virginia with my family, 11 cats, and one noisy bird. I love to write, cross stitch, and color. I’ve been reading since I was four. Mom said the first word I spoke was ‘book’, carrying one around and bugging everyone to read to me. All were thankful when I began reading for myself.

Angel Mine

The official Blurb:

Jeza is a gorgeous redhead with a broken heart. One afternoon, she meets a handsome stranger at a local gun range and the sparks fly.
Instant attraction results in a hot romance, but trouble looms on the horizon. Her former abusive boyfriend returns to reclaim her with dangerous intent.

What reviewers are saying:

‘A Novella wanting for MORE. I loved this intense, fully developed and the polarity of the couple in question. The short story is filled with a story that took me into both well developed character personalities. Both were ‘mared’ with the troubles of disappointment regarding love of the past and both had to solve their inner issues as it moved quickly through the picture this was about LOVE”-Airriel

“Chioffi has a considerable gift for character presentation and development and in “Angel Mine” she focuses consistently on two strong central characters, both of whom move from positions of self-doubt after failed relationships to a renewal of confidence as they slowly find happiness in each other. An ordinary, perhaps even pedestrian theme, one might think, but there is a twist which makes this book quite memorable and by including it, the author shows that she is a story-teller of considerable ability”-Judith Rook.

“This is a sizzling hot short, and a very easy, quick read. If you’re looking for something steamy you can read in an hour, or so, this story is perfect! 🙂 “-Over the Rainbow

I know that Angel Mine just shot up to the top of my own TBR list 🙂

She meets Mr. Flannery who takes her in, employs her, and provides her a place to live – a cottage in the woods on his property. He becomes something of a father to her.
