Virtual Excerpt Tour ~ Secrets of an Aztec Temple by Paty Jager With Giveaway


Revenge is not always sweet…

Isabella Mumphrey can’t leave a puzzle alone. This time she attempts to use her anthropology knowledge to uncover who is stealing priceless artifacts from an Aztec Temple in Mexico City. The discovery will certainly prove her worth to the World Intelligence Agency.  

Tino Costantine is in Mexico City, too. He has infiltrated a drug lord’s organization to find enough evidence to not only prove the man’s illegal activities, but to bring him down for numerous deaths. Namely those of Tino’s family.

But when the love of his life, Isabella, strolls into his enemy’s home, Tino’s challenged by the choice of saving her or fulfilling his revenge.

********* EXCERPT *********
Tino’s senses shot electricity through his body. He wasn’t alone. Rather than let on he knew someone watched him, he snorted and stretched, slipping his hand under his pillow to grasp his Glock.
He rolled to his feet and placed the muzzle of his weapon against Cezar’s chest.
“You are sleeping late, amigo,” Cezar said, pushing the weapon to the side.
“Yesterday was busy.” Tino grabbed his pants and pulled them on, keeping an eye on Cezar.
“No, you were out late last night. Diego saw you coming back at four.” Cezar grabbed the straight back chair, spun it around, and sat, straddling the seat, his arms crossed over the back. He settled his chin on his arms and peered at Tino. “Diego said you looked like a content man.” He wiggled a finger. “You know Jefe does not like us consorting with women. It is too easy to talk big and spill important information.”
Tino’s heart hammered in his chest. To deny he was with a woman would look suspicious but there was no way he wanted them to find out about Isabella.
, I was tense from all that went down yesterday and the best relaxation is…” He winked. “I picked up a hot mamácita at a cantina and we had some fun.” Tino leaned closer. “If you want to go with me another time, she has a friend.”

Poor Tino, he is often in those tense situtions and mostly that has something to do with Isabella.

Thank you for having me here today!

Anas, That's true. Tino does tend to get in to problems due to his need to protect Isabella. Thank you for stopping in and commenting.

Thanks Chelsea! I'm excited you are excited. Spread the word!

Paty Jager said...

Wow, I wrote a whole long comment answering each of you and it's not here. Gala asked what do you like best about Tino. I like that he fell for Isabella for her personality and intelligence and not her body or looks. And his protectiveness.

Lyra asked what I like to do when I'm not writing. My husband and I have thirty head of cattle and 70 acres of alfalfa we raise for hay. I like outdoor chores and riding my horse as well as visiting my children and grandchildren.
