✢  EXCERPT ✢  

Chapter 1

I’m cold,

colder than I’ve ever been in my entire life and I don’t know why. Slowly,

I open my eyes, tentatively at first because even opening them a fraction

feels like someone’s shoving red-hot pins into them. The light is so

bright.

What’s with

the light anyway?

Has Michael

wandered in, blootered on some poncy new beer and left the light on, after

collapsing in a heap onto the bed?  I’ll brain him if he has. I’m no good

to anyone when I don’t get my eight hours.

Pulling myself

up in bed, I reach out my arm to nudge him awake so I can give him a right

mouthful. My hand finds empty space.

Where is he?

My eyes sting

as I prise them open – it’s as though there’s been an accident with false lashes

and I’ve glued my eyelashes together – and that’s when I realise I’m not in

our flat. The reason I’m freezing is because I’m wearing a tracing paper

thin hospital gown: the kind that shows off your backside when you’re

being whisked off to x-ray.

A tidal wave

of panic hits me and I jerk into full consciousness.

What’s

happened to me?

I try to

remember, but my brain’s all bunged up as if the top of my head’s been removed

and the cavity filled with cotton wool.

My arms are

bandaged up. Have I been in an accident?  If I have, I don’t

remember. 

Maybe I hit my

head. 

I take in my

surroundings. If I’m in hospital, it’s no ordinary one. For one thing, my room’s

more like a cell. There’s a bed and a table bolted to the floor, but no

personal stuff: photos, or cards, or stuffed animals from people wishing

me well. Does anyone even know I’m here? 

I grope for a

call button to get a nurse, but there isn’t one. What the hell? This place

is a prison. 

Staggering out

of bed, I fight the wave of nausea and dizziness that make me want to yell

at the world to stop moving because I want to get off the carousel. The tile

floor is stone cold and there are no slippers by the bed. My feet are ice

blocks. Why don’t I have any socks or tights on?  

Before I reach

the door, there’s a jingle of keys, then a key scrapes in the lock. 

Holding my

breath, I brace myself for what’s coming. 

A woman I

don’t recognize with brown hair tied back in a ponytail appears. She’s dressed

in a nurse’s uniform and there’s a small smile playing on the edge of her lips.

“Good,

you’re awake, Nancy.”

She sounds

pleased, as if we’re bosom buddies, when I’ve never seen her before in my

life.

“Where am

I?”

My voice comes

out as a rasp as though my throat’s been sandpapered down.

The nurse puts

a hand on my shoulder. “Let’s get you back into bed, Nancy.”

I do as she

says. I’m worried if I don’t lie back, I’ll faint.

“You’re

in Parkview Hospital,” she says, as she fixes the pillows so I can sit

upright.

I know all the

hospitals in Glasgow, but I haven’t heard of that one. I ask her what kind

of hospital it is and she tells me it’s a psychiatric facility. The reason I

haven’t heard of it, is because they don’t publicize it. Perhaps because

it’s full of nutters they want to keep away from society. The prospect

terrifies me because that would mean they must think I’m cuckoo. Why else

would I be here?  

I suck in my

breath. When I ask her if this is a nut house, she presses her lips

tightly together as she tells me no one refers to psychiatric hospitals in

that way anymore. 

Suitably

chastised, I mumble an apology not because I think one’s needed, but because

she’s the one with the keys.

“Why am I

here?”

I’m dreading

the answer, but I need to know. I don’t feel any different. Surely if I’d lost

my mind, I’d know.

“You had

a breakdown.”

The way she

says it, she could be talking about the weather.

She asks me if

I want anything and I tell her a pair of proper pajamas, a dressing gown and

slippers would be nice because I’m an ice block. If she gets in touch

with Mum, she’ll bring me in some stuff. 

Her smile’s

still there, but breaks down around the corners of her mouth. There’s something

she’s not telling me, because she’s worried how I’ll react. There’s fear

in her eyes. I notice she’s wearing a lucky heather brooch, the same one I

got for Mum. 

I’m staring at

it as she tells me she’s going to fetch a doctor, when a memory stirs inside

me and no matter how hard I try to push it away, someone’s taken their

finger out the dyke and the water’s rushing in. 

Blood, blood

everywhere. Dad’s slumped in his favorite armchair, head bent forward as

if in prayer (he never prayed a day in his life); a single bullet hole in his

head. I know it’s him, even although his face has been beaten to a pulp:

his blood staining the fireside rug my mum was so fond of. Even in death,

my dad has a presence. He fills a room with the sheer weight of his

personality. Discarded nearby is the baseball bat they used on him. It’s

covered in blood and something sticky and dark brown, resembling raw

mincemeat.

Kenna

“All of his pain, I was always the cause of it. Even if indirectly. All roads led to Kenna, I supposed.”

My Madman brings me to life—but it comes at a price. I’m the one who faces his demons when they decide to crawl out of the hell inside his head.

One thing is certain: it’s not my forgiveness that is needed. Phil must forgive himself before there’s chance for us. I’m afraid he won’t be able to. What will I have then?

Without him, I’m just existing.

Phil

“Looking back now, I think I wanted to scare her a little, wanted to see if she’d run screaming from the demons in me.”

My Baby Girl owns me. Always has, always will. My heart beats for her, my soul is only half without her. Then The Madman surfaces and rips into her. My demons are threatening to rip us apart.

I’m going to lose her, lose my only dream, the only future I’ll accept.

How do I fix this? She speaks of forgiveness. Deep down, I’m afraid I’m too weak to find it.

Kenna is strong enough to walk away from us. She’s giving me No Quarter.

Genre: Spiritual Rocker Romance (It’s NOT paranormal, but deals with a level of intuition and spiritual connection between the characters.)

Series: NOLA’s Own Book 1

~ SYNOPSIS ~

Kenna MacGregor was raised to believe that music is the language of the soul. That life is a song, pulsing with beats and rhythms, harmonizing the inner spirit with the energy of the universe. In a fated moment, she discovers the one person whose music reaches deep into her being, speaking to her in ways no one else ever could.

He is the dominating, larger-than-life, in-your-face Phil Deveraux. He’s the lead singer of her favorite band and adolescent fantasy.

She’s just a face in the crowd. A face that Phil is destined to see.

Their lips touch igniting an inferno-hot passion–awakening an incredible spiritual connection between them–melding their souls together in ways neither of them could foresee. Time stands still for Kenna and Phil and real life relentlessly thrusts them in different directions, while they each cling to that one moment when their destiny was sealed with a kiss.

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~

Kelli Jean 

Moving to the arctic from a tropical climate might strike some people as a bit off, but I did it, and would never go back to heat and humidity.

I met a wonderful man who became my life partner, and we’ve started a family together in a place I can only descibe as Sheep Country.

At one point in my life, I was painfully shy and introverted. It led to obsessive reading and a select group of close friends that I have had almost my whole life.

No longer shy (I don’t know how that happened, it just did), I developed a horrendously foul mouth, and this tendancy to find humor in almost any situation, and this diabolical need to speak my mind. It sometimes gets me into trouble.

Animal-lover, feminist, yoga enthusiast (when I get off the computer and practice, that is), and proud mother.

I am not hurt.

I don’t need a second chance with him, or a life I thought I had.

While he was out forgetting me to become a movie star, I was building a career out of nothing. A career as a paparazzi, but a career. For a foster kid who bounced around every home in Los Angeles, that wasn’t easy.

This camera is all I have.

He’s nothing to me. Every time I take his picture and sell it, I remind myself that I did it all without him or his approval, his cinnamon smell or his clear green eyes. He lights up the screen like a celestial body, but he’s nothing but a paycheck to me.

He can throw my camera off a balcony, and nothing has to change. We can stay king and queen of the same city, and different worlds.

Except this is Hollywood, and here, anything can happen.

About the Author

cd reiss new bio

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

About CHASING RIVER:

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.

And don’t forget BURYING WATER and BECOMING RAIN, the first two books in this thrilling series…

 

Burying Water

BURYING WATER is just $1.99 for the month of April!

About BURYING WATER:

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

About BECOMING RAIN:

Luke Boone doesn’t know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it-the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he’s finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set—one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it’s not exactly legal, Luke’s never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain.

Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game—at only twenty-six years old, she’s one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington D.C. major crime unit, and she’s just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the west coast’s most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she’ll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she’ll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she’ll even want to.
