I am participating in the Author Helping Authors – Egg-cerpt Exchange.
Today, I am featuring Chris Redding, author of Blonde Demolition.
YOU JUST CAN’T HIDE FROM THE PAST…
Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.
Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory’s life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don’t have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.
Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
They had no clue she could defend herself armed or unarmed. That information didn’t go along with her trust fund reputation. No need to enlighten them.
Trey’s words brought her back. “Have you thought about it?”
“I didn’t come up with an answer.” She wouldn’t be rushed. She would decide this in her own damn time. Not on someone else’s schedule.
“You better move on, Trey.”
He glanced back at the firefighters who walked his way. A sardonic grin creased his face. “Well, well.”
“Leave, Trey. I don’t want to see anyone hurt.”
“Me or them?”
He walked past her as if she didn’t exist.
“He bothering you?” Cal asked.
She shook her head. “Nope, just asking the time.”
“You didn’t look at your watch.”
“I don’t have one, so I couldn’t tell him the time. He was harmless, guys. Thanks anyway.”
Cal stared after Trey, who now turned bolts on the massive Ferris wheel. He wasn’t harmless, though he’d never hurt her physically.
