I will be posting random snippets from my romantic suspense novel, BORROWED TIME. Please stop by and take a glimpse. "A beautiful engineer fights to prevent her savant brother from becoming a military pawn."

BORROWED TIME only .99 cents!

She turned and saw him. Cerulean eyes widened in alarm and then narrowed in conviction. Gone was the anxious little angel. The creature that approached him was cool, reserved, and very suspicious.

“Were you standing there long?”

“I’m not doing anything quickly right now.” He attested and nodded at the machine. “Want some coffee?”

Emily yanked her hands out of her pockets, catching his eyes on them. A deep breath seemed to settle her. “I had to make a call. You know, let family know where I am, and all.”


After her hasty departure before, Brian had tried to exorcise this woman from his mind. “Naturally they’re concerned.”

“I didn’t think you could walk.”

“I can’t run.” He shrugged. “I can walk.”

For a moment they stared each other down. Emily’s newly reserved expression wavered. Steeling herself with a jerk of the shoulder, she managed, “Well, then you are mending, and I am going.”

She didn’t even look back. She walked directly past him, ignoring his pained stance and nearly clipping a man in a wheelchair in her haste to reach the lobby doors.

Brian hefted off the doorframe and limped towards those doors, watching the white apparition disappear into a mist of snow and fog, as if she had never existed to begin with. Limping a few more steps, he reached the glass and searched the parking lot, but for a car he would not recognize anyway. Still, his glance surveyed the parked vehicles, some covered with last night’s snowfall, some blackened by recent slush. But no willowy white figure. No soft cinnamon crown.

His angel had spread her wings and flown away.
