Author Spotlight: Character Interview with Mystic Rayne

Today I’m so excited to have Mystic Rayne, one of the characters from Tena Stetler’s latest release, An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement. Please welcome her!


An Angel's Unintentional Entanglement - not preorder (1)Morning Abigail. I’m Mystic Rayne. Tena is running late and Caden is—“ She paused for a moment. “Indisposed. So I’m here to fill in. If that’s okay.”

“That’s fine. I’ll tweak the questions and we’ll go on.”

Abigail: “Tell us about you.”

Mystic grinned raising one eyebrow. “I’m a Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent assigned to the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. Well really I work in a contract position now.”

Abigail: “Wow, that must be an interesting job.”

“Can be. But mostly it’s protecting the rights of the innocent and seeing that justice is served.  Kinda the liasion between my people and the system. They’ll talk to me when they won’t outsiders.  Sometimes it’s not easy.  Life on the Rez isn’t easy.”

Abigail: “Who were the biggest role models in your life?”

“My dad.  He was the tribe’s shaman and head of the tribal council. I was supposed to follow in his footsteps. I have the gift.” She sighed. “But rebelled. Went off to college then on to law school.  It wasn’t until after I graduated, passed the bar and took a position in a prestigious law firm that I discovered I wasn’t cut out for the legal system. Something my dad knew to begin with. He let me go, knowing I’d be back. Smart man. By the time I returned, he was ill. I learned what I could from him before he passed.” She shook her head. “So much time wasted.”

Abigail: “I’m sorry for your loss. Tell us how you met Caden.”

“After my dad passed, I was expected to take my place as shaman and head of the tribal council.  That’s when everything went so wrong. He saved my life.”

Abigail: “How so?”

“I’d been left for dead. He nursed me back to health, so as to speak.”

Abigail: “What surprised you most about Caden?”

She laughed. “Lots of things. He can work with anyone, even the Demon Overlord. There was this incident during our attendance of Phantom at Buell Theatre in the Denver Center of the Performing Arts.  You’d sworn that he and Bruce were best friends with the shenanigans they tried to pull. It was a fun night out and took the edge off. That’s all I can say.”

Abigail: “Aww come on, you gotta give us few savory tidbits.  Tena won’t mind.”

“Sorry. But you can read all about it in AN ANGEL’S UNINTENTIONAL ENTANGLEMENT.” She flashed a mischievous grin. “He’s an angel you know. That was quite a shock. I learned things about the angel hierarchy that made my head spin. Do you know the difference between a Warrior Angel and a White Angel?

Abigail: “I’m afraid I don’t.”

“All the more reason to pick up a copy of AN ANGEL’S UNINTENTIONAL ENTANGLEMENT. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Author, Tena Stetler waves as she enters the room.  “So what secrets did you spill, Mystic?”

“Not a one.” She smirked. “Your author friend sure did try though.”

Red patches bloomed on Abigail’s cheeks. “My job.”

Abigail: So Tena tell us a little about AN ANGEL’S UNINENTIONAL ENTANGLEMENT.

AnAngelsUnintentionalEntanglement_w12428_750 (1) revisedFallen warrior angel, Caden Silverwind, lives alone in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, healing from physical wounds as well as the mental anguish suffered during battles with dark  demons. Then he finds a woman barely clinging to life after a horrendous beating. He is not prepared for the entanglement she brings to his life, nor the feelings she awakens in him.

Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent, Mystic Rayne’s personal dilemma and assignment nearly gets her killed. Divine intervention is a complication she never expected and her growing attraction to Caden is undeniable. Can she trust him with her secret?

Their quest to uncover her attacker takes them from the pristine mountains in Colorado to the wilds of Wyoming. Along the way, they find answers which may place them in more danger. Determined to solve the mystery, they must also navigate their feelings and fears to find love and unite heaven and earth.

An exclusive peek between the pages of AN ANGEL’S UNINTENTIONAL ENTANGLEMENT:

Dislodged rocks and sticks bounced down the path ahead of him as he stopped to admire the view and noticed something in the brush.

She lay naked, battered, and beaten several yards off the trail. Her long, straight black hair fanned around her head, tangled with twigs and bits of grass.  Caden moved silently toward her, stopped, and picked up a Bureau of Indian Affairs ID a few feet from where she lay. He stuffed it in his pocket while watching the surrounding area for signs of her attackers. Kneeling down at her side, he saw scratches and bruises on her high-sculpted cheekbones and her full lips had a shading of blue around them. He placed his hand lightly on her chest, felt a weak heartbeat and sensed a brave soul unwilling to give up. God, this is the last thing I need.

Summoning medical help here was futile. The altitude at 12,092 feet, combined with rocky terrain, made it difficult for most rescue vehicles. They’d be too late to save her. He slid his hands under her body. At his touch, a scene unfolded in his mind of snarling wolves, the valiant fight she waged against a male until she was too weak to defend herself any longer, then blackness. Anger surged through him as he carried her along the rocky path to the fifth wheel trailer he called home.
