Resurrection – Now Available

September 15, 2006

Five years ago the death of her partner and lover turned Jordan McAdam’s world upside down. Now she leads an unusual life, Police Officer by day, Vigilante by night. But Jordan isn’t interested in seeking justice from the average criminal. Now she stalks the creatures who sacrifice the innocent, creatures who she suspects might be responsible for a string of bizarre sacrificial murders.

Gage Campbell already died once, or nearly, and he doesn’t plan on doing it again anytime soon. Part of an elite team of Shadow Destroyers, he has spent the last few years hunting the demons who changed his life, never dreaming an assignment would lead him straight back to the woman he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for five long years.

But standing between them are years of secrets and hurt, and a raging desire that just might bring them together, if the murder case they’re working on doesn’t separate them…permanently.

Excerpt from Resurrection

“Where are we going?”

Jordan led the way as they cut across the park, heading into the thicker part of the centennial grounds. “We’re following a lead.”

“So you’ve said, but you haven’t given me any other details.” Gage cut her off.

Forced to stop or run into him, Jordan came to a standstill, arms crossed. After they left the precinct, he insisted on getting a bite to eat where he then spent the next couple of hours steering the conversation away from himself whenever possible. Despite her efforts, he offered no further details on anything relating to Shadow Destroyers other than what Brady had already told her that morning. Between the two of them, she couldn’t decide who she wanted to hit more.

Aside from knowing that Gage was alive and that he worked for an organization that slayed the same creatures she did, she still knew virtually nothing. He’d said nothing more on why he hadn’t told her he was alive, and most of his questions this evening had involved the murder case. For a man who last night agreed they still had a lot still to talk about, she’d foolishly assumed he meant them. She’d obviously been wrong, and that on top of lying to her these past five years, he was sticking around primarily for the demons, or more specifically, to stop more sacrifices from taking place that would allow a Scion to cross over.

I already told you about the link to the prostitutes.”

His gaze drifted down to her mouth, and Jordan’s heart picked up speed.

Gage leaned in closer. “How does that explain where we’re going?”

“We’re going to talk to someone who knows both demons and prostitutes. He owns a bar not too far from where those storm demons were last night. Now you’re in the loop. Satisfied?” She shifted her attention from his mouth to his eyes.

The flash of heat in the blue depths burned through her. “Not really.” He cocked his head. “Is there a boyfriend I should know about?”

Jordan took his abrupt change in subject in stride. “Would you care?”

His voiced deepened with a possessive edge she remembered all too well. “Is there?”

“Do you have a girlfriend or wife back home, wherever that is?” Her gut knotted at the possibility.

He took a purposeful step forward. “You didn’t answer my question.”

“You noticed that, huh?” she quipped, then took a step back, the predatory look on his face setting off an internal alarm that hadn’t sounded since the day she pinned him on the gym mat at the academy, a heartbeat before he flipped her, reversing their positions.

“I’ll take your silence on the issue as a no.”

“You always did make too many assumptions.”

A wolfish grin curved his lips. “Like how you wanted me from the first day at the academy?”

Jordan snorted, unable to retreat another step as her back came up against a tree trunk.

“Or how you still want me now?” He propped a hand against the tree next to her face and edged closer.

The silken cords in her belly pulled tight. “You’ve always been too cocky for your own good.”

“At least you’re not denying it.”

“Denying what?” Breathless even to her own ears, Jordan flattened a palm against his chest, but didn’t push him away.

His mouth grazed her jaw. Jordan closed her eyes as the fire pooling in her womb twisted deeper.

“Try to keep up. We’re talking about how much you still want me.” He skimmed his lips over hers. “How much I still want you.”
