The Perfect Spirit by Traci Hayden

Traci Hayden’s debut novel will be available on Amazon on May 15. Here’s a glimpse of what’s to follow:

Synopsis
Twenty-year-old writer, Vanessa Fortney, has travelled the world, living life to the fullest. When she comes home due to the unexpected death of her only blood relatives, she only has one regret; never finding love that triumphs over all others. 
 
In a beautiful valley in the Rocky Mountains, Nessa finds herself wondering about mysterious stranger who saved her after a nearly disastrous car accident. The mystery that surrounds Daniel is quickly replaced by the increasing attraction Nessa feels for him.
 

Will she find that love that transcends all love or will tragedy keep them apart?


Excerpt
 
Nessa’s body melted as his deep and lusty French accent washed over her, penetrating her deepest fantasies. “My name is…”
 
Vanessa. I know,”he answered. He stepped forward, pulling gloved hand out from within his
coat. “My name’s Daniel.”
Nessa assumed that, since the town on the edge of the valley had small gathering, her presence had been known within a few hours of her arrival. She looked down at his extended hand and contemplated taking it. When they touched, it was to be final. Her whispering dreams of him would become real. All her fleeting thoughts of him would be physical.
 
Her drive to be captivated by him drove her tiny hand into his. A chill travelled down her arm as she realized how cold his hand was even through the leather glove. However, her hospitality and caring nature won out over everything else she was feeling.

“Come
to the house. Sit by the fire and warm up. I’m sure Richard and Sylvia would like to thank you also.” Secretly, she wanted to keep him close to her.
 
I’m sorry, but must decline.” His voice held layer of regret. “I’m not comfortable around people. I’ve been alone for long time.”
 
Nessa bowed her head, hiding her disappointment. “Maybe we could just sit and talk for a bit then.”
 
Daniel’s hand came to rest on her cheek. His thumb under her chin, tilted her face up till his beautiful eyes met hers again. “As much as would love to…” He looked towards the horizon, the sun barely visible as it set, “I must leave.”
 
The pang of disappointment stabbed Nessa’s heart as the profound sadness tore through her. She nodded, holding herself together. “I understand.”
 
Daniel leaned in, breathing in her scent. “I missed this.” Nessa’s body reacted involuntarily. She reached up on her toes and brushed her cheek against his clean shaven face. The fragrance of jasmine and lavender imprinted in her mind.
 
Missed what?” Nessa asked, already knowing the answer, but relishing in the sound of his deep voice.
 
Your smell.” He whispered, leaning his face closer to hers. “I haven’t
smelled the incense of lilacs in far too long.”
 
The heat of her blush flamed bright against her skin. She needed to see
him again. “Daniel…” His name tasted sweet on her lips, “…when can I see you again?”
 
Very soon, ma belle.” He breathed into her ear. “For now, remember me in your dreams.”
