Hello and welcome to Teaser Tuesday where every week I’ll be posting a teaser from a range of books and genres. This post is all about fun, so sit back with a coffee and enjoy a short tease from talented authors.
This week we have Doppelgänger by Camille Taylor
“Following the rules has its advantages, but breaking them may just save her life.”
Bestselling author Megan Bailey is devastated when her young cousin Stacey goes missing. She’s been watching the news and knows what this might mean. Stacey could be the newest victim of Harbour Bay’s newest serial killer. Megan is determined to do something, and enlists the help of her friend, the superintendent of police, Amelia Donovan.
Amelia has her best detective on the case…Dean Matthews.
Dean doesn’t believe in love. It makes men weak and vulnerable, and as a retired soldier, he’s experienced enough heartache to last several lifetimes. He also has difficulty dealing with emotional women. So when he shows up to interview Megan at the request of his boss, he isn’t exactly looking forward to it. Except Megan isn’t what he expected.
Megan is intelligent, witty, and not to mention, beautiful. Dean tries to maintain a professional distance, but with a killer on the loose, he breaks all his rules and gets involved. He offers Megan comfort and promises he might not be able to keep.
The body count continues to rise and Dean’s leads are empty as ever…
When Megan disappears too, Dean knows his time to solve this case is up. He must unravel the twisted web of clues the killer has left behind or risk the one woman who might finally teach him to love again.
He turned around, his entire body taut with tension. His blood pounded in his ears as he absorbed her words, his gaze searching hers for sincerity. She was close to tears, her whole body quivering as if ready to give out on her completely. She did need him. He took a deep breath, preparing himself for what he knew would come next. Megan was too tempting for him to have any kind of choice.
He crossed the small space between them, and Megan’s eyes widened at his speed. He caught hold of her head, cradling it on the perfect angle. Dean no longer wanted to fight it. He kissed her like he’d wanted to from the beginning, hard, rough, deep, a show of things to come. Megan’s arms fastened around his neck, holding on tight as he continued to seduce her with his tongue.
The barely restrained passion and desire they’d kept bottled up ignited immediately and he heard Megan moan. It wasn’t a mistake. Loving her could never be a mistake. Everything felt so right and never before had he wanted a woman more. His usual restraint was non-existent now that Megan was in his arms, almost as wanton as him.
It was pure comfort, he told himself, nothing more. He wasn’t entirely sure who he was comforting, but at the present moment it didn’t really matter. The only thought in his mind was Megan writhing beneath him in complete abandon.
He knew he should slow down, make sure this was what she wanted. He needed to know it was him she wanted, that not any man would do. But somewhere on the path from his brain to his mouth the words got lost along with any thoughts of slowing down.
He was going to break every rule, self-imposed and otherwise. He needed Megan. Maybe more than she needed him. She twisted him up, turned him inside out and nothing would stop him from having her. She was under his skin, buried deep, all the way to his soul. Usually, he’d be clawing his way out, but instead he found himself wanting more. Wanting everything Megan was willing to give.
Surprisingly, he didn’t warn her like all the other women he’d slept with over the years about his lack of commitment. Didn’t tell her she was making one of the biggest mistakes of her life by caring for him, letting him into her heart and body. He would never be able to reciprocate and he knew he would break her heart. But at that moment he simply didn’t care. All he wanted right now was Megan. One hundred percent of her. How could he be so careless? That he could possibly destroy everything good in her? Who was he kidding? He wanted her, and damn his rules. He couldn’t walk away, not now.
His hands slid from her face down the curves of her body to her waist, his rough calloused fingers working their way under the cotton material and onto skin so soft it was like touching silk.
