This week’s tease is from my upcoming suspense title, AWAKENINGS.

Here, Detectives, Alicia has already been suspended from the force for her actions and she now has her cousin to deal with, when they receive terrible news.
(C) Kacey Hammell,2017
“Alicia, you know you’re not to blame for what happened to Monica. It wasn’t your fault.”
Alicia should have known Brady would tap into everything she might feel and think. There was no way to hide from him. A seer, he sometimes had a sense of what others were going through—horrific or joyful. But without him, she wouldn’t be alive right now. She owed him her life and someday she hoped she’d be able to repay him.
Her hand on his arm, Alicia smiled into his clear-blue eyes. “I know. I do, but it’s really mind over matter isn’t it?” She lowered her hand and gave him a weak smile, then turned her back on KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600him. “This too shall pass…someday.”
“Ali….” Whatever Brady was about to say, Isabella’s curse rent through the apartment, interrupting him.
“Fucking Christ! Some days are just fucked. God dammit!”
With a flurry of movement, Isabella grabbed her coat from where she’d thrown it on the sofa and jammed her arms into the sleeves.
Alicia breathed a sigh of relief, glad Brady couldn’t lecture her on all the reasons she shouldn’t blame herself.
“Izzy, what is it?” Brady walked to her and clasped her shoulders with both hands. Instantly, Isabella’s movements slowed to a crawl and she heaved a deep sigh.
Alicia’s heart clenched at the display before her. Brady was the best thing to ever happen to Isabella. He was the calm in her soul, the root beneath her that kept her holding on. Alicia was envious of the connection the two had.
Once upon a time, she’d fantasized of her own knight in shining armor coming into her life. Now, she figured love and happily-ever-after were not all they were cracked up to be. She couldn’t keep herself safe. How the hell would she ever keep a husband or children safe in the world she lived in?
“Alicia?”
Pulled from her own thoughts by the sound of Isabella’s voice, she lifted her gaze to her cousin’s face. From the sadness and anger within her gaze, the call she’d received couldn’t be good.
“What is it?”
“Connor was on the phone. I have to get over to the Hopeful. Hannah’s been hurt.”
Alicia’s breath hitched at the thought of her friend, Hannah Isaacs, being injured. The Hopeful Shelter took in the homeless, helped battered and abused women seek another place to live, to escape an abusive husband or significant other.
Hannah helped so many women in their town, and even in surrounding areas, she deserved a medal for her goodness and her constant caring of others. She was a godsend to many children, abused women, the homeless.
“What’s happened?”
“I shouldn’t even be telling you this….”
“Save it, Isabella.” Alicia moved closer to her cousin. “You can’t give me vague answers and then just quit! We’re friends. What’s happened to her?”
With a hard sigh, Isabella met her gaze. “She was found this morning by one of the shelter’s volunteers. I don’t have all the details yet, but she’s on her way to Memorial Hospital. She was beaten and possibly raped.”
Alicia grabbed the back of the couch.
Dear God—evil, it never stops.

This week’s tease is from new release suspense title, AWAKENINGS.

Now one can deny a chemistry and unrequited love …

“You know what, Ali?” His voice was soft and powerfully seductive. “You know what I remember most about our night together?”

Alicia clasped his wrist, below where his fingers rested lightly on her cheek. She wanted to fall into his arms, burn beneath his touch again. They’d never talked about it, and she was curious to know what he remembered.

She remembered it all.

Every touch and sigh. She basked in the memory of every kiss and every pleasure.

Through many a cold and lonely night, she cherished the memories of Cole’s hard body pressed against hers, pushing her against the mattress—and the wall and the bathroom counter. She marveled at how he’d made her feel like more of a woman in one night than she’d felt in all her adult years.

Her voice hoarse and scratchy, she whispered, “What do you remember?”

“Our fire.”

When his mouth claimed hers, her body ignited with long-repressed emotions.

Hunger, mind-blowing hunger, rattled through her. It was so hard to breathe.

She wrapped her arms around his shoulders and opened her mouth wider to the onslaught of his tongue. He awakened her refined senses. Every erotic image she ever had about him flared to life.

She only prayed she’d be able to keep him from awakening the loneliness in her heart. She couldn’t allow him to reach it and make her hunger for more than what she could have.

For the time being, though, she wasn’t going to let go of this man. Alicia lifted her lips from his, drew in a deep breath, and gave him everything she could for now.

“This fire?” She clasped his head between her hands, drew him into a kiss, savoring the taste of him once more.

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

This week’s tease is from my upcoming suspense title, AWAKENINGS.

Here, Detectives, Alicia Knowles & her partner Ethan James have come upon the dead body of a young woman brutally murdered. After what Alicia went through in ILLUSIONS (book 1 of In the Arms of the Law), let’s just say, she is not dealing with it well.

And Alicia’s actions have repercussions that surprise her, and add tension to an already difficult situation Captain Cole Douglass, her boss — and her old lover…

 

(C) Kacey Hammell,2016

“Dammit it, Ethan, get over here. Help me cover her!”

At the high-pitched, crazed tone in his partner’s voice, Ethan had a feeling Alicia Knowles was remembering the past. He strode quickly to her side.

“You know we can’t cover her, move her, or do anything to contaminate the body or KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600scene.” He clipped the radio to his belt and knelt beside Alicia at Monica’s right side. His gaze lifted to his partner’s face. He saw what he’d feared: pale complexion, tight-set lips as concern and fear waged war on her face.

“Pull yourself together.”

Not quite six months had passed since Alicia had been held hostage, naked, gagged, and bound to a chair by a madman with a knife and a bomb. Earlier, when they’d received the call to investigate the sighting of the suspect they’d been on the lookout for, Ethan noted Alicia’s immediate stillness. There had been a misstep in her stride as they came upon the body—clothes torn, beaten, and still bound and gagged—lying in the parking lot behind her apartment building.

“I don’t want anyone to see her like this.” Alicia’s shaky voice washed over him.

The iciness of it chilled him to the bone.

She came back to the job too soon. I should have tried to stop her.

“She’s cold.” Alicia tenderly touched the dead woman’s cheek. “Help me get her off this cold cement. Let’s put her in the back seat of the car.”

To witness his partner wanting to comfort the young woman, a mere four years younger than she, nearly broke his heart.

But common sense prevailed. “Fuck, don’t touch her.” He grabbed her hand. “Dammit, Ali. Just wait for the M.E.” Ethan saw her body tighten with tension, and her gaze blazed fire at him as she lifted her head. She pinned him with a stare he’d come to recognize over the last few months. Rage, ice, and anger in those hardened eyes.

If looks could kill….

#MidWeekTease ~ “I wouldn’t call us pals, sweetheart.” #WildThunder #MWTease #99Cents

MWTease15

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease is from WILD THUNDER. WT is the bonus short story at the end of AWAKENINGS.

Here, Ethan James has his hands full with his on and off again lover, Shelby. They have a lot of history, past rivalries and yet can’t seem to keep their hands off one another.

It’s a fun relationship to say the least …

 

(C) Kacey Hammell,2016
“I wouldn’t call us pals, sweetheart.”
She shivered but lifted her chin and met his gaze, unflinching, as her heart plummeted. Yes, they had a fucked up relationship, but she’d hoped he considered them friends, too.
“Is that how you think of us?”
Shelby refused to let him bait her. “When do you think you’re coming down off this KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600mountain? It’s not like you to hide from things.”
She would convince him to return to the land of the living. Kicking and screaming, if she had to. She refused to think of him, rage bottled inside, hurting without an outlet to break free.
Annoyance swirled in the depths of his grassy-green eyes. Good, she was getting to him.
“Go to hell,” he ordered.
“Tsk, tsk. Come on, sweetheart, that’s not nice. I’m trying to help you.”
He laughed, but it held little humor. “You want to help me, do you? Oh, honey, I can think of better ways.”
He wanted her. She recognized the husky warmth of his tone. She hadn’t buried her head in the sand about what might happen when she came up here. His mother had mentioned someone named Isabella. Had Ethan found someone he wanted to spend the rest of his life with? Was it time to give him up and move on?
Forcing back her nerves, she goaded. “What, no woman to take care of those needs for you?”
He leaned forward, and her heart raced. “If there were a woman in my life, you can damn guarantee she’d be up here with me and I’d be fucking her every possible way. If you have a question, spit it out.”
She damned herself for falling in love with this man years ago, knowing he might never feel the same. Helpless and unable to fight him, as well as herself, she whispered, “Then let me help you.”
Sex wouldn’t solve any problems. Oh, how well she understood that. But for a while she could find the fire she craved in his arms and the loneliness would ease. Hands bracketing her head, he held her in place and sought her lips. His glorious taste filled her mouth, intoxicating. The taste of coffee and Ethan captured her heart and soul.
Tugging the top of the blanket lower, he exposed her breasts and palmed her flesh. Weak-kneed, she clutched at his gray T-shirt for support, reveling in the feel of his fingers pinching and flicking each nipple.
He pulled away, stared deep into her eyes, and smoothed his thumb over her lips. “You make me lose control. No matter how hard I try not to want you.”
She tugged his shirt over his head, admiring how his bronze skin glistened in the dim light. “Losing control is good in my opinion.”
He grinned at her then reached for the blanket bunched at her waist and gave it a hard tug, and dragged her naked form into his lap. His hardness pressed against her pussy. She shivered, thrilled at his take-charge attitude. His lips sought her nipple drawing it into his warm mouth. Her head fell back. A deep moan escaped when he pressed both mounds close and moved his tongue from one to the other.
Her inner muscles clenched, heat pooling in her core. She wanted him deep inside her, to drown in everything he had to offer.

 

 WILD THUNDER is the bonus story in AWAKENINGS…
