Fallen Leaves by @AuthorTinaGayle #1 Excerpt

Family Tree Series

Family spiritual guides who guide the future generations.





Fallen Leaves Blurb –


As autumn comes to the Winston estate in Ohio, Amber Harrison learns further lessons in her new position as keeper for the spirits and ghosts who haunt the estate–and further lessons in love, too. She and her love, Carter Miller, grapple with the fears and passions of new love, while caught up in the storm of ancient family drama.


This is the second book in the unfolding saga of the psychics and talents associated with the Winston estate, a sheltered place where past, present, and future are woven into a single dramatic tapestry of love and desire. The tale spans multiple generations, multiple eras, and offers something special for all ages of reader. A sexy, erotic winner, with an assortment of couples to appeal to most tastes.



Susan replied and changed the subject. “Have you heard from my sister? I told her yesterday when I talked to her that you wanted her to come see you. She said she’d call and set up a visit for this coming weekend.”

“Not yet, but she can come to Winston Manor whenever it’s convenient for her. I know she’s busy getting settled in her dorm room at Ohio State, so don’t rush her.” Amber brushed her long blonde hair away from her face. “Columbus is an easy town to get around, but it’s different from California.”

She recalled her fears when she’d first moved to Ohio; the strange, overwhelming impression of being detached from everything familiar. If it hadn’t been for Mattie Winston and the family spirits, Amber would’ve never stayed.

At times, she still missed sunny Orange County. Her gaze fell on the dreary mist falling outside the patio doors.

“When you do hear from her, make sure she tells you how she tackled a wide receiver on her first day of classes.”

“What?” A picture of Lilia formed in Amber’s head. “She can’t be more than five-six. How did she manage it?”

“In her normal, clueless way. She was walking across campus with her head in the clouds. He and his friends were tossing around a football. He didn’t see her on the path and blindsided her. They did a little dance, and she ended up on the ground with this six-foot hunk under her.” Susan laughed, “Talk about going down on a man. She thinks he might play for the Ohio State football team.”

Tackling one particular man did sound fun. Amber’s gaze slid to Carter’s lean form again. “What did she do?”

“Well, you know my psychic sister. She retrieved the ball, stood, and calmly handed it back to him with some friendly advice.”

“What, like he’d better watch where he’s going in the future or he’ll get hurt?”

“No! Picture this: she told him how he should hold the ball. High and tight, or he’d never score on any field.” Susan chuckled at her sister’s unusual antics. “I can almost envision her serious gray eyes, mesmerizing him with her gypsy charm.”

Amber pictured Lilia’s multi-color skirt floating around her ankles, her bangle bracelets jingling with her movements, and her wild hair waltzing in the breeze. “The guy probably thought he’d fallen down a rabbit hole.”

“Hey, and guess what my crazy psychic sister did next?” Susan answered her own question, “She simply walked away.”

Laughter rang through the phone.

“You shouldn’t give her such a hard time. She’s only trying to find herself.” Amber sympathized. Susan might not see it as being so funny if she had to cope with the same set of circumstances.

“No, Lilia knows she’s a psychic. Her problem is she wants the world to accept her as she is. What she doesn’t understand is the world doesn’t give a damn,” Susan expressed with sisterly clarity.

“All right, but you should be more understanding?” Amber had learned over the last few months how it felt to be different, especially now, in her new role as keeper of the Winston family spirits. The tasks she needed to accomplish could be overwhelming at times.

“No, Lilia needs to lighten up and have some fun.” Susan added, “Like someone else I know.”
