If You Hear Her…

So… people want to know what this book is about.  Really.  Not just snippets.  I still don’t have a blurb-I did, but it might changed a bit.  Soooo…how about this instead.

It’s an excerpt that sort of gets right to the whole point of the story.

“Oh, God,” Lena whispered. Her heart slammed against her ribcage as she reached for the phone by her bed.

There was another scream and she dropped the phone. Swearing, she crawled out of the bed, patting around on the floor. “Damn it, damn it, damn it.” Icy, cold sweat dripped along her spine as she listened through the window.

Branches snapping in the night-dark trees. A ragged moan. Then all was silent.

Where’s the fricking phone??

Making a sound halfway between a sob and a growl, she stuck her hand under him the bed and heaved out a sigh of relief as her fingers brushed plastic. Scuttling across the floor, she pressed her back to the wall and listened, phone clutched in her hand.

Nothing. She didn’t hear anything…wait.

Quiet. Somebody quiet, now. Moving through the trees. If her room had been any farther away from the trees, if she had lived any closer to town…hell, if she’d had the radio playing, she never would have heard it. So, so quiet…

There was another short, sharp scream–one that ended all too abruptly.

With her heart racing, Lena dialed nine-one-one. Puck made a rough sound low in his throat and nosed her leg. She patted the space next to her and as he pressed his big, furry body against her leg, she wrapped an arm around him.

“Nine-one-one. What’s your emergency?”

“I…I hear a woman screaming. She’s screaming for help.”

It only took minutes. Maybe ten. Logically, she knew not much time had passed before she heard the sirens, but it seemed like an eternity. Too long. Too much time.

She hadn’t heard the woman again…what if it was too late?

Because I’m evil and keeping this series very close to my chest, I’m…

  • not answering questions about this series…(I’ll answer release date stuff, that sort of thing)
  • but I’m not going into more detail on…what it’s about, etc, etc, etc
  • because, well… I’m keeping it close to my chest.  I’m super excited over it and very nervous and um…
  • well, if you wanna know more, you’ll just have to read the series when it comes out.

  1. I agree it does sound very good!! Is it romantic suspense this time? I’d die to know what genre this one is. 🙂

    Looking forward to it. Have fun writing it!!!
