Hello and welcome!
I was surprised by today’s guest and I can’t wait for you to meet her. Read on!
Special delivery, a muffled woman’s voice sounds through the door.
A moment later there is a knock that sounds like it was done with the toe of a shoe. Does it make sense? No. But I am beginning to get used to things like this, it comes from being associated with M.A.
I open the door and a gorgeous blonde shoves a huge bouquet of fragrant yellow roses into my arms as she breezes through the doorway.
So glad I didn’t have to do that twice. You have any idea how bulky a could dozen roses are? Not to mention the other gifts that were sent to you from those who know you at home.
Gifts? Others? Who? What? I don’t understand.
I don’t need to say a thing.
I am Tyndal, and I know you haven’t met me yet, but I have heard a lot about you.
Actually, I grin as I bury my nose in the flowers. I have heard quite a lot about you in the past, and I expect to hear more about you in the future.
Which is why I came to see you. I want to clear this up before any of it begins to take place. To have that happen, we have to light a fire under M.A.’s butt or she will never get anything done. Any ideas?
I watch, as Tyndal seems to have taken possession of my home. She reaches into the cupboard and pulls out the largest vase I possess, even as she motions for me to bring the flowers to her. It only takes her a few moments to prep them to go into the water. As she puts the finishing touches on the placement of the blooms, she adds,
Rhys picked these from our garden only this morning. It is why they smell so good and look so fresh. He said they would fit the theme and you would love that.
Theme? Theme for what? I still haven’t found my voice. It doesn’t seem to matter.
I thought you would like these.
Tyndal hands me a box that has to weigh no less than five pounds. I open the top and a golden sheet of film floats into the air. Inside the bottom is layer after layer of truffles nestled in golden wrappers. Have I ever mentioned how much I like truffles?
I look up at Tyndal as she places the vase on my cluttered table, and as she turns to pick up a stack of white boxes that are tied in tiered fashion together.
Without missing a beat, Tyndal continues to talk as she pulls the bow that keeps the packages in place. She then pulls several plates out of the cupboard, and places each of the contents of the boxes onto their own platters.
Lemon meringue tarts. Lemon slices, Lemon chiffon cake, and not to be outdone, Lemon cheesecake with a blueberry garnish. The girls thought you would like a few treats. And yes, they can be frozen if there are too many.
I finally gather my wits enough to speak, I am overwhelmed. To be honest, I thought that now that the Daughters of the Valley Trilogy is over that I wouldn’t be hearing anything more from the other side.
Who said anything is over?
Well, I assumed, since it’d been forever! I exclaim.
As Tyndal helped herself to a bottle of cold water, she waves a forefinger at me and replies,
Never assume. Nothing is over. In fact, now that the boys are home, things are just beginning to warm up. I have to admit, they are some of the most broody men I have had the misfortune to hang around with. They weren’t that way when they were here. Well, maybe Lucifer was, but he has taken his frustration to a whole new level. I swear, that man needs to get laid. But there is hope for him, as you will find out when M.A. gets caught up with her backlog. You really need to ride that woman’s butt to get her motivated. The ‘Sons of the Valley’ will never get written if she continues to mope the way she does.
Tyndal looks at her watch and sighs,
I have to run, it was nice talking with you. Do you mind if I take the bottle with me? Thank you, and see you again, perhaps next year. Or, if I can’t make it, perhaps I will send Lucifer… that should be lots of fun… black roses, dark chocolate truffles, Devil’s food cake.
Tyndal laughs, and moments later she is gone. Behind her she leaves the fragrances of lemon pastry, Yellow roses, and expensive chocolate.
Hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.
Tyndal hails from ‘Tyndal’ a novella from the the ‘Daughters of the Valley’ series by M. A. Abraham.
As Angelika’s godmother and a member of an organization called “The Angels”, Tyndal has followed in her family’s footsteps in the outside world. Their place is to make the world a better place to live. Her time to continue her work has come to an end. In helping Angelika Leanne return to her home world, she has made a deadly enemy, one that will do whatever it takes to learn her secrets.
When Tyrus receives news that Tyndal has been injured, he goes to her rescue, his friend, Rhys, follows him. To Rhys’ surprise, he falls in love with the woman he is about to meet. They, however, come from different worlds. Or do they?

My review: 5 stars
I was so excited when I heard that Tyndal will be getting her story as I fell in love with her character since she appeared in the ‘Daughters of the Valley’ series.
The author didn’t disappoint in giving Tyndal the take-charge-independent-fearless traits she is known for giving her heroines. I am glad she is not alone anymore, she found her mate in Rhys, but their journey to HEA is dangerous and lots of surprises, some good, some bad, are thrown their way, and the readers’ too 😉
Will also get to know more about the Angels organization that Tyndal is part of.
I sure enjoyed the read and I am looking forward to the next adventure in the Valley and hopefully will get to meet more Angels.
So there will be another trilogy with the Sons of the Valley SQUEEEE as my guest confirmed and here is a small excerpt from her book that made me think there will be more.
“Did you think your people were the only ones with secrets? Those you will be privy to are not only going to shock you, but make you question what you thought you knew about your world. Not everything is how it seems. Keep that in mind and know there are more hands at work here than it seems.” Lucifer told Tyrus.
“Are you talking about the underground organization of people living in the world that comes from other dimensions? If so, we have known about them for a long time already,” Tyrus informed Lucifer. “We have a connection to a few and even know that there isn’t one Angel that didn’t originate from beyond one of the portals.”
Lucifer grinned as he commented, “Someone has been talking.”
To celebrate the new release, Ms. Abraham is offering an ebook copy of ‘Tyndal’ to one of you. Sexy Mr. Random will choose a winner from the comments on Monday, March 28, 2022 after 3pm EST. GOOD LUCK!
