Tuesday Tease - Never Let You Fall

First, don't forget THIS!!!

You can find my cover reveal here this Thursday!  Thanks so much to the amazing SupaGurl Heather over at SupaGurl Tours for putting the reveal together.  Heather is a huge supporter of Indie books and an amazing friend!

Now, on to the tease!!  I am feeling very generous today so you are getting a long tease.  Not only are you getting a longer one but this one spoils a little information as well...

Scene set up: Xander and Skye have just jumped into their SUV to outrun some bad guys.  Xander was told to check the glovebox for helpful information... 

"First, can you check the glove box and see what’s in there?" Xander asked, interrupting my thoughts. 

I actually jumped back a little when I popped the glovebox open, which caused Xander to snicker at me.  "What did you think was going to jump out at you?"

"These days I have no idea," I retorted, as I pulled out the single envelope that lay in the glove box.  It was sealed and thin, and couldn’t have held more than a sheet of paper, as light as it felt. 

"Looking for this?"  I questioned, and I held it up for him to see.

"Yeah, I think so."  His voice wavered and I found myself studying his profile; trying to get an idea for what was going on in his head.

"Open it up."

"Really?" I asked, with trepidation dripping in my voice.  "You're actually going to let me in?"

His hand ran through his hair - I loved that - and he sighed.  "Skye, I've kept you out of the loop for as long as I have so that I could keep you safe, not because I wanted to.  We’re in this together now."

My heart leapt.  He was right…we were in this, whatever it was, together.  I tore open the envelope and pulled out a single sheet of paper with a name and number.  That was it?  I flipped it over.  Nothing. 

"This is it.  The name ‘Selene’ and a number," I said softly. 

I guess I’d expected something more profound.

"That's it," confirmed Xander.  "After we jump on the interstate we can pick up a phone, and then we’ll call her."

"Okay.  Who is she?"

Xander cleared his throat before he spoke, but kept his eyes on the road.

"I don't know, actually."

"You don't know?  Do you even know where we’re going?"


The urge to jerk the door open and throw myself out of the moving vehicle was overwhelming. 

"Time to tell me the plan, Xander.  I need to know now." 

"I know.  I told you I would fill you in, but I just wanted to be sure the number was in the glove box.  You know at the diner, when you questioned how I was supposed to keep you safe for the rest of your life?" 

I nodded in acknowledgment and he continued on.  "It upset me, because I realized that you didn’t ‘get the picture’ yet..."

"What picture?"

"The one where you will never be safe Skye.  Not here.  Hell - maybe not even in Tyalbrook."

A million curses and questions hurtled over each other in a rush to make their way out of my mouth, but all I actually said was, "Why?"

Why indeed!  Well friends that's it.  What do you think?  I hope that you have been able to follow all of my Tuesday Teases and that they are wetting your appetite for Never Let You Fall!  

Just a few more weeks till release!  Eeeepppp!
