What magic is this? Supernatural? Witchcraft? The Shaman’s Curse?
Deep in the Arizona desert, the love a young woman feels for her mysterious Indian lover grows deeper every year, though her heart stopped beating over a century ago—stilled by the one she loves. What magic could cause this? What ancient Native American witchcraft could hold her spirit captive and make her part of The Haunting of Sunset Canyon? Could the legends of ghost warriors who guard the treasure of the Lost Blood Stones Mine be true?
When Darcy Peel left Dry Creek, Arizona, to go to graduate school, she thought she had left for good. She never imagined she would come back to the small community nestled in the shadow of Prospector’s Mountain. But now she is compelled to return and find her sister who is lost in the red gorge canyon. On her trail to the truth, Darcy meets Alan Brandt, a young deputy who possesses hidden abilities that link him to stories of ghost warriors. Can she trust him to help find her sister as he promises? Or is she being trapped by the canyon’s magic—seduced by her attraction to a man with an uncanny connection to the deadly legends?

Her eyesight faded while outside the cave the shape of Prospector’s Mountain scraped the skyline and covered the canyon in shadow. The soft pressure of his lips lingered on her ear – this gift of pleasure her last human sensation.
“Emm-ma-line,” he whispered. “There is one thing I can do.”
The timbre of his voice, the voice she loved, soaked into her waning consciousness. His words receded with her into the dark void and replaced the beat of her heart.
“Stay with me…”

About the Author
Krista Lynn is a late-comer to the author’s world, with a long academic career in earth sciences in her wake, instead of years of fiction writing. But wind has filled all the sails this year, with the release of Blood Stones: The Haunting of Sunset Canyon, the first book in The Canyon Series.
It’s no mystery why Lynn writes about the high desert of Arizona. She grew up on a gold mine about sixty miles north of Phoenix. The closest neighbor was six miles or so down the Agua Fria River, or another twenty miles by dirt road. To say it was a gold mine is technically correct, but very little gold was ever mined. It did, however, keep gas in the jeep and food on the table. The real treasure of this placer gold-mining venture was the lasting impressions of living wild in the desert with her brothers and a menagerie of dogs, goats, and donkeys. And experiencing the magic and spirit of a rugged, isolated landscape, where mysteries were carried on the wind and whispered in your sleep. Years later, these experiences are the multi-colored threads woven into her series of romantic supernatural suspense set in the high desert of Arizona.
She now lives in California with her husband and a menagerie of dogs, goats, and one spoiled horse.
