Obsession

Borrow Borrow Borrow


Michelle Girard never expected three of her former classmates to wind up dead just before their high school reunion. But thanks to the sharp eye of her former crush, FBI Agent Colin Roarke, the scattered rose petals found at the scenes prove the "Reunion Killer" has struck again.

Colin, an uneasy war hero, feels a need to protect Michelle, especially when she becomes the killer's latest obsession. Staying one step ahead has always been Colin's specialty, but as his frustration intensifies, so do the very real complications of long-buried feelings. Then Michelle is kidnapped, and clues lead Colin to the foreboding Columbella House, an abandoned Victorian mansion where shrouds of fog conceal dark secrets--and dangerous, hidden desires.

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    No, I do not need a lifetime supply of Viagra. Michelle Girard snorted as she deleted the unopened email, sending it to the black hole of cyberspace. Maybe Alec Wright, the computer teacher at school, could suggest a better spam filter, one that didn't allow this garbage to slip through to her in-box.

    As her cursor hovered over the next message, a breath of apprehension puffed against the nape of her neck and her hand trembled. The words in the subject line punched her in the gut. Like mother, like daughter?

    Different unknown sender from last month, same message. And just like last month, she deleted the email without opening it or reading it and then cleared her delete folder. She didn't know if the message contained more content than the insidious question, and she didn't want to find out.

    She jumped at the sharp rap on her front door and slammed her laptop shut, as if that could banish the disturbing email from her mind. She dropped the math quizzes she had to grade on top of the computer and crept to the door. Twitching back the curtain on the window, she blew out a deep breath and waved at Amanda, her best friend.

    Amanda banged on the door and yelled, "Don't just stand there gawking. Let me in, already."

    Michelle swung open the door, and Amanda charged across the threshold, gripping her upper arms, a sweater draped around her shoulders. She gave an exaggerated shiver. "This June gloom sucks."

    Michelle peered outside at the once-sunny day now shrouded in a slow-moving fog rolling in from the beach. June days in the little coastal town of Coral Cove usually started out overcast and ended that way.

    She snapped the door shut and turned to survey her friend. "What are you doing here, and why are you all dressed up?"

    "This old thing?" Amanda glanced down at her shimmering summer dress and plucked at the floral skirt as her sweater slipped to the floor.

    "Since you usually work at home in sweats and a T-shirt, there must be some special occasion." Michelle crossed her arms, waiting for news of Amanda's next harebrained scheme. She adored her friend, but she was as flighty as a butterfly in a gust of wind.

    "You have to point that out, don't you?" She adjusted the bodice of her dress and spread her arms out, pausing theatrically. "Colin Roarke is back in town."

    Michelle raised one brow. "Colin Roarke?"

    "Oh, please. Even you with your bookish ways and band of nerds must've heard of the Roarke brothers in high school." She tousled her blond-streaked hair and took a twirl around the room. "Colin was four years ahead of us and Kieran was six years ahead."

    "Of course I've heard of them." Michelle dipped to scoop up Amanda's sweater from the floor, her hair sweeping across her suddenly flushed cheeks. She hadn't given Colin Roarke much thought since she'd had a mad, useless, crazy crush on him in high school.

    "I know they both got football scholarships to college. The family lived down the road from here." Michelle tilted her head. "Didn't the parents retire to Hawaii or something?

    The dad made a killing in the dot-com industry and pulled out before it all went bust."

    Amanda's mouth hung open. "Who cares about their parents? Colin is back in town, and he's hotter and hunkier than ever, or so I've heard. I haven't had a peek at him yet, but we're about to remedy that."

    "You're going to check out Colin Roarke?" Michelle laughed. Amanda and her husband had separated exactly two months ago, and she spent all her time trying to...
