#BookBlitz: 'Touched to the Depths' by Elsa Winckler

 

























He

was the photographer, she the model and on a sunny beach on Mahé, she stole his

heart. But Darryn isn't ready for the powerful feelings Hannah elicits, so when

another photographer implies he's also slept with Hannah, Darryn uses it as the

perfect excuse to walk away.


But

when they meet again, he can't ignore his instincts—Hannah is in danger. Lies

and threats make targets of them both, and faced with a situation of pure

terror, Darryn is forced to realize he'll do anything to protect her. And to

keep her with him, always...

I have been reading love stories for as long as I can remember and

when I ‘met’ the classic authors like Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell,

Henry James The Brontë sisters, etc. during my studies, I was hooked for

life.


I married my college boyfriend and soul mate and after 38 years, 3

beautiful children and three grandchildren, he still makes me weak in

the knees. We are fortunate to live in the picturesque little seaside

village of Betty’s Bay, South Africa with the ocean a block away and a

beautiful mountain right behind us.


And although life so far has not always been an easy ride, it has always been an exiting and interesting one!


I like the heroines in my stories to be beautiful, feisty,

independent and headstrong.  And the heroes must be strong but possess a

generous amount of sensitivity. They are of course, also gorgeous!  My

stories typically incorporate the family background of the characters to

better understand where they come from and who they are when we meet

them in the story.


I was fortunate to win the best romance award for an Afrikaans story  in 2010 and again in 2014.

Snippet time!











She

couldn’t help it, she had to do it. The photographer was late, she had her

makeup on, her hair was ready, so she could indulge before she had to work.


Lifting

her face up to the sun, drinking in the fragrance that was the Seychelles,

Hannah lifted the layers of pink tulle of the skirt she was wearing and

twirled. The make-up artist and the hair stylist laughed.


“I

was wondering when you’d do that,” Sandy, the make-up artist said.


Looking

over her shoulder, Sandy grinned. “Looks like our photographer caught you in

the act.”


Hannah

looked up into a pair of dark brown eyes that were watching her over the lens

of a camera. This had to be Darryn Cavallo. The rumors were true—he was

drop-dead gorgeous. Tall, muscled, with tousled, ink-black hair. Wow.


She

didn’t wait to be introduced to him, didn’t wait to listen to his instructions.

With her eyes locked on him, she slid into a pose. He stared at her for another

minute before he lifted the camera.


And

then her body started moving to a beat only audible to her and the

photographer. Without any conscious thought, she posed and turned,

instinctively knowing exactly what he wanted her to do.


The air around her

stopped moving, breathing became difficult, any minute now she was going to go

up in flames. Every cell in her body was reacting to him.
