Grand Junction author releases novel

Terri Benson

Grand Junction author Terri Benson has released a new novel in conjunction with the Champagne Book Group.

“The Angel and the Demon,” the first book in the Lead Me Into Temptation Series, tells the story of Angelique Lawson, a 24-year-old spinster responsible for getting Demon Daugherty healthy enough to hang. The man isn’t a murderous train robber, though, but the owner of the railroad and a nearby gold mine.

The novel is available in electronic format through online and traditional book sellers. A paperback edition will be available in the near future.

The novel is the second historical romance for Benson, who also wrote “An Unsinkable Love” based on the Titanic disaster.

Benson expects to release a mystery later this year titled “Pickup Artist” through Literary Wanderlust.

A life-long resident of Grand Junction, Benson has written nearly 100 articles and short stories. She’s a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and Sisters in Crime and teaches classes on writing fiction at Western Colorado Community College.
