So by way of saying a huge THANK YOU to everyone who followed and participated in the blog tour celebrating the release of THE WAITING GAME I thought I'd post a snippet. By the way, the winner of the giveaway competition for the hand-crafted notebook and giftcard will be announced very soon.
The conviction is his tone frightened her. Made it all seem so real. Too real. The ragged edge of panic descended again. She looked around the room, her vision swimming. This was supposed to be her safe haven. Her sanctuary.
As if he understood, Cam offered quietly, "When we leave, it'll be easier if you don't look back. I appreciate this is hard, but it's only a matter of time before Spinks works out a way of getting here. It's important to know when to stay, when to run, and when to hide. Right now, you hide. At least until I can verify his intentions. You ready?"
At the door, his hand shot out to stop her. "It's the dark blue rental parked on the corner. I don't have a driver. It's not like being on tour. It's going to be like the day you and I went to the beach on our own. Remember the drill?"
Dragging in a breath, she nodded.
This was it, then.
She couldn't look at him. She was too afraid that if she caught his expression, she wouldn't see him remembering that day at the beach when he'd relaxed his bodyguard attitude and kissed her, hot and deep and full of want. Afraid that instead of that warm memory, she'd see him remembering how he'd found her on day six of her disappearance.
In a damp, derelict boarding house.
Tied to a steel gurney.
