Excerpt of Deal Breaker by Heather Long and Rebecca Royce:
The sense of danger, of knowing what I did next
would forever alter my future? It was back.
And I was stuck in the dark.
Grace wouldn’t be able to rescue me this time. No
one stood just outside the door, ready to swoop in and save me. Not Reese. Not
Briggs. Not Goran. Not Dalton. Even the sense of them was gone. No, I was on my
If I wanted to be saved, I had to do it myself.
The trouble was I had no idea where I was or what
happened. A rumble of an engine beneath me was a constant feeling, like I was
on a boat, but I doubted it was a sea vessel. I was in a windowless room, and
no one had come to see me. I was an alien, at least on Earth, and those who
were out to get me wanted to deny me a throne I didn’t want or care to have. I
rubbed my eyes. I was on a spaceship to somewhere.
Grace was dead. She wouldn’t be waiting outside the
door. And my loves—all four of them—I didn’t know what had happened to them
either. I had no memory from losing it in an explosion of energy to waking up
in this darkness. My anger was the same—pulsing, all consuming—but the rest of
my existence altered so completely, I doubted I’d recognize it even if I could
see anything in this room.
I rose to my feet, pleased I could stand straight
since the pitch-blackness made it impossible for me to tell where the ceiling
was. As I had the first time I tried this, I raised a hand over my head and one
out to the side. I’d found a wall and used that wall as my guide—not that it
got me anywhere.
A grinding noise jerked me around. It was the first
sound to penetrate the gloom beyond that of my own voice and ragged breaths.
For the briefest of seconds, a blinding white light staggered me as a door
opened, only to vanish again as it snapped closed. The darkness blazed around
the dazzling burn to my retinas. Yet, in that brief second of illumination, I’d
My heart stuttered. Was that real? Had I imagined
it? He’d had a finger to his lips, but then he was gone, swallowed by the
darkness. But—wait, Dalton moved through the shadows so this would be nothing
to him, right? Was he there? Really? I couldn’t feel him, not at all, in the
link we had with each other.
Then warm arms slid around me, and I almost sobbed
at the contact. But was it Dalton? I stiffened. What if this was a
hallucination? Some figment of my imagination come to torment me? I swallowed
the terror-soured anger, pushing my hands up between us to flatten against his
chest. I wouldn’t give in.
“I can’t feel you.” If he was really here, if the
man gripping me was my Dalton, I would have been able to feel him, right?
Everything changed when I crashed into a food truck.
By Heather Long and Rebecca Royce
It all started with a brutal hill. An incline that I was determined to crest. One, long, punishing climb with my thighs screaming as I pumped the pedals for all I was worth. That hill could have been a metaphor for my whole life. I was climbing out of the crater left by a broken heart, ready to seize control again. Making it up that hill was a good first step.
Then I hit the food truck.
Enter Reese Riley, blond, gorgeous, stunning sapphire eyes and the kind of smile to set my blood on fire. No way he was real. With charm to spare, he walked me home and then asked me out. Then he introduced me to his friends—Briggs, Goran, and Dalton. Stunning men, all of them. Funny, too. They flirted, they teased, and they indulged. They were incredible, each of them, and they fit into my life like they’d been born to be there. I didn’t know whether to celebrate or to run like hell.
Oh, and did I mention they were aliens?
To be honest, it was a little hard to get into this one. But once I did, it was really, really good. I could have killed both authors when I hit the ending! I’m looking forward to the next one!
