My Angel, My Light as Darkness Falls
She was born in Mississippi and lives in Alabama. She went back to school late in life, graduated with a BA in Anthropology from University of Alabama. Reading is like nectar from the Gods to Linda and writing is just plain fun. Her great, great grandfather is Daniel Boone and she found that out by researching her family herself.
Her fourth book, “My Angel, My Light As Darkness Falls” really meant more to her because she worked on it for such a long time and because Linda was determined to make her writing much better than it had been. Kim Richards and Sally Odgers from Eternal Press are inspirations for her. Barbara Metzger, one of her favorite authors gave Linda encouragement too. Linda loves writing and hopes to continue to do it for the rest of her life along with anything she can do for her God and children.

“What I said to your brother, lassie, was true. You are the
sweetest flower here, and so tiny. I thought you were a dream
when I saw you. Your brother looks a lot like you. Do ye be twins?”
“Yes, Your Grace, we are fraternal twins although Mike is so
much larger than I am.”
“Well, this be a real funny coincidence. I have a twin too. We
are like two peas in a pod, lassie.”
He laughed and Prudence lost her heart. His smile radiated
with a white brilliance and was so real, especially when she saw
the twin dimples in his handsome cheeks. The dance was coming
to a close and Fearghass steered his catch into the doors that led
to the balcony.
Pru had no time to protest before he had her hidden behind the
door and took her into his arms. She saw his mouth descending to
hers as if in slow motion and licked her lips. It was like a dream
come true. His lips, hard and smooth, captured hers, stopping the
chaos of her mind. Pru’s heart hammered wildly. Suddenly, it was
only the two of them and no one else, except the kiss.
Excerpt: My Angel, My Light As Darkness Falls by Linda Hays-Gibbs
The ballroom sparkled with the most fantastic candelabra
that Pru had ever seen. It looked like thousands of twinkling
stars all floating on a beautiful night sky. Flowers of every color
and luscious scent decorated the hallways and alcoves. The delicate
champagne glasses were so exquisite and fine that Pru was
afraid the one she held might shatter in her hand. The night air
had a cool breeze but it felt just right as it floated on the air from
the doorways and windows in the gigantic ballroom. Sounds of
laughter and good humor were a little too loud or a little too shrill
maybe, but she would not let that worry her.
What a wonderful time she was having after all the horrible
rain and dullness of the last few days. The orchestra played the
waltz and she looked at her dance card for her partner. Oh, she
had not forgotten who it was, but she wanted to appear that she
It was the big handsome Scot Fearghass MacDonald the Duke
of Somerled. He crossed the dance floor, headed for her side as she
glanced around to find him. How powerful his shoulders looked
and he moved like a big cat. He was not dressed in regimentals but
wore a dark blue velvet jacket and darker blue breeches with white
stockings and white cravat. His eyes had twinkled at her when he
asked for the first waltz. He caressed her hand with such a delicate
kiss, shivers raced down her spine. Then he turned to her
palm and brushed the inside with his tongue. It sent larger chills
down Pru’s back just thinking about it. How was she to manage
the dance with this sophisticated and elegant man? Pru trembled
all over with anticipation. She was at her first ball, after all.
She had not even had a come out yet. Oh no! She felt, rather
than saw, her handsome brother by her side. He grabbed her elbow
and looked into her eyes. He saw into her soul and always
knew how she felt. Michael David Densington White, sixth Earl
of White, was a beautiful sight in his regimentals and gold braid.
Her twin brother whispered into her ear his fair warning.
“Pru, you cannot be serious, this duke is too old for you and
too experienced. You are very young and I let you come just to be
obliging after your confinement with this horrid rain.
1. In three days, all power will go off, everywhere for a very long time. What will you include in your author survival kit? My Nook, matches,candles,gas lantern, 10 full gas cans, labtop, cellphone, carton of pens,pencils, paper and a case of twinkies, 4 cases of water, case of Dr. Peppers, a bottle of wine, 4 gowns, my comfortable bathrobe, houseshoes,and flyswatter and spray, along with my little portable gas powered generator.
2. Where did the idea for the work you are promoting arise? I was reading a book on the last battle with Napoleon and thought how horrible it was with 45,000 dead in one field and there were several fields and I wondered how I would feel with my loved ones in that battle. Also I thought wow, what a great place for a vampire to be. After all these boys did not all die at once. Some took days to die and if a vampire was around well, he could feast and make an army for himself. I think I will use this in another book with another vampire tale. Then, there would be ghosts around the place too and a lot of other nasty fellows to add spice for this poor little innocent girl. The French was the enemy and what better lover than a French Vampire but that is telling too much.
3. What do you like to read? Regency Romance, Scifi, Paranormal and Regency Romance. I get a little stuck on Regency Romance.
4. Tell us about the most exciting place you have ever visited? Saudi Arabia. I lived there for 5 years. It was an experience back in the late 70s. Cultural shock set in 6 months after I was there and it was an experience too.

7. Tell us anything but keep it G rated. All romance novels remind me of one of my husbands. I have been married four times. Lol So I am not going to say which one. I think that everyone needs romance in their lives and I like to keep my ladies innocent and let them grown into women who grow up and learn what it is they want in life. We are all innocent at one time or another and it is the different roads of life we take that make us into the people we are.
