QSFer Sarah Madison has a new paranormal book out:
When FBI agent Jerry Lee Parker wakes from a coma after a murderous attack on his life, he has no memory of his immediate past. In the blink of an eye, he has gone from having a nearly photographic memory to recalling nothing of the last six months of his life, including his partner and lover, John Flynn. While Lee tries to reboot his past and reconnect with John, there are events at play around him he doesn’t understand. John is keeping secrets from him, secrets which could get them both killed.
Matters come to a head when Lee is hounded to turn over a mysterious artifact, of which he has no knowledge. The two men wind up in a fight for their lives as they risk everything to keep the powerful relic out of the hands of a ruthless killer. In order to protect those he loves, however, John may be forced to make a deal with the devil.
Book 3 in the award-winning Sixth Sense series
I walked into the bar like I owned it. Perhaps I did. All those years of theater in high school and college came back to me, and besides, clothing makes the man, right? Tucking my sunglasses into the collar of my shirt, I noted with satisfaction the glances in my direction as I took my seat at the bar and waited. In that moment, I knew I was worthy of the attention of someone like John Flynn.
I only hoped he felt the same way.
I ordered a whiskey sour with Crown Royal and sipped it while I waited. It was relatively early, but there were a few customers, mostly at tables, eating burgers. The smell of grilled meat was mouthwatering, but that wasn’t the meat I was after. The first contender of the evening slipped into the seat next to me.
“Hey.” His smile was engaging and hopeful. He was younger than me by at least five or six years, which was flattering, to say the least. “How’d you break your arm?”
As a conversation starter, it wasn’t half-bad. I looked at the guy and revised his age down a few more years. Grad student, most likely. Probably from VCU, seeing as it was so close. Hair overly long and flopping into his eyes. Cute. Lean too—probably from living off Ramen noodles and biking everywhere. My cock stirred as I assessed him, but he wasn’t the one I wanted. “Bad day at work.” I smiled, hoping to take the sting out of the coming rejection.
“Ouch.” He grabbed a few pretzels from the dish on the bar, but didn’t eat any of them. “So, I haven’t seen you around here before. Is this your first time here?”
“I’m only in town for a little while,” I said, making sure I sounded regretful. “I’m meeting someone,” I added.
He nodded, as though it was inevitable, and it made me feel… wanted. Knowing that he took my unavailability for granted was inexplicably gratifying.
“Lucky someone.” His smile was rueful. “Can I sign your cast?”
“Sure.” Why not? I watched with interest as he pulled a Sharpie out of his pocket.
“I work in a lab on campus,” he said, without explaining which campus he meant.
I laughed when I saw that he’d written his phone number on my cast. “I might have a hard time explaining that to my boyfriend,” I said when he was done.
He capped the pen and tucked it back in his pocket, then leaned forward to brush his lips across my ear. “I certainly hope so.”
I smiled back at him as he left the counter. He waggled his fingers at me and retreated toward the far end of the room, and I turned back to my glass, still smiling as I took another sip.
I knew the moment John walked into the bar.
