Celebrating Robin Leigh Miller's First Print Release

Today we are celebrating Robin Leigh Miller's very first print release, BLACK SMOKE, an action-packed romantic adventure with a twist of the paranormal.

Robin resides in central Pennsylvania with her husband, three children, German Shepard Tae' and mutt hound Bailey. She now lives a quiet, subdued life in comparison to her younger years of dirt track racing in stock cars. An adrenaline junky, these days she enjoys putting her characters through their paces.

Action, adventure and a touch of paranormal can be found in her books. "Enter a world where anything can happen...and usually does" is her motto and reflects her writing style. Sometime the mundane can become insane. Take a walk on the wild side and join her heroins as they muttle through the twists and turns life throws at them. And of course, there's always the hunky guy to catch them when they fall.


BLACK SMOKE from author Robin Leigh Miller.

Samantha Wells has lived through more hell in her short life than most. At the age of eight her serene life was turned upside down. Her parents were brutally murdered and Sam barely escaped with her life. But she didn't do it alone - a soft calm voice led her to safety, the voice of her spirit guide.

Disguised by a black mask and the handle Black Smoke, with the help of her spirit guide, Sam rescues those unfortunate people who find themselves in the hands of humanity's worst. Life is good until Sam is called on to assist a small covert military team in recovering a kidnapped scientist in Afghanistan.

Lt. Mark Lowe (Kong) is less than thrilled to be placing his team's lives in the hands of a woman, much less one as beautiful and sexy as Sam. He quickly learns there is more to this woman than meets the eye. She not only infiltrates enemy bases - she's infiltrated his heart. Kong retreats to safer ground, leaving Sam heartbroken. Distant and unwilling to listen to anyone, Sam delves headfirst into a hell that only Kong can pull her from.

Enter a world where anything can happen...and usually does with author Robin Leigh Miller.

  1. Super congrats on your first ever print release!!! I love this book, it's full of action, adventure and suspense and has two very strong and sexy lead characters.

    Where did the idea for this story come from? Tell us a little bit about this world you created and what you're working on now.

    I wish you HUGE SUCCESS with this print release and hope to see your other books in print soon.

    Enjoy the party and congrats again!

  2. Congrats on the print release. Love that there is a strong female lead.

    Black Smoke developed out of my fascination with the spirit world and my love of action and deep respect for our Military men and women. Looking back the story came together nicely, almost as if it were meant to be written. Even though I outlined the story there were times when the characters and I didn't see eye to eye on how a particular scene should go. They won the battle.

    Samantha (Black Smoke) lived a fairly solitude life dreaming of being an ordinary woman with an ordinary life, yet knowing her life would never be typical. At a young age she was set on a path that would define who and what she became.

    When Mark (Kong), stepped into her world of covert work it didn't go smoothly at first but with the encouragement of her spirit guide she allowed herself to open up and found that she could have a man she loved and still follow her path in life. As it is in the real world, it took work and communication. Work Samantha understood, communication she had to work on, as did Mark.

    Together they learn to share their worlds as they trudge through hell and back.

    I currently have two WIP's in the works, both based around the military world and the events that take place in the dark world of Black Ops. I firmly believe our country wouldn't be what is is today without the brave men and women who put their lives on the line without gratitude or acknowledgment from the citizens they protect.

    I hope everyone enjoys Black Smoke and can lose themselves, if only for a short while, in a fast paced, action filled world where life and death can make falling in love that much sweeter.

  4. Hi, Robin! Congrats on your first print release! Thank you for creating such a strong, kick-butt female character in "Black Smoke"! It takes a strong man to love a strong woman. Sometimes you lead...sometimes you follow...especially when you follow your heart : )

  11. Pat,
    Now that would be giving away some maybe important information in the story??!! HaHa. You'll have to read to find you. Think about it though. How do we know if we've actually seen our guides? They could appear in so many different forms. You may well have met yours and don't know it. Something to think about.
    Thanks for dropping by.

    How many books do you plan to write in the Agents of Mercy series? Will the other books also become available in print?

  18. Leni,

    Wow! Wouldn't that be great?! My book in film? From your lips to the appropriate ears. But, you aren't the first one to tell me it should be a movie. Really, the fact that people feel that way is as good. Thank you for the vote of confidence.

  22. Annalisa,
    There are two more books in the Agents of Mercy series. Boomer's Fall and Ricochets Rogue. Whether or not they go to print is up to the publisher. If Smoke does well, maybe they'll consider printing the other two. I don't know. I keep my fingers crossed. I've been working on a story that relates back to the Agents of Mercy but I'm not sure how soon I'll finish it or if it will be accpeted.
    Thanks for the question.
