As she falls into my arms, a memory from our past stabs me. She would call me after her foster father, Buck, had said horrendous things to her like calling her a half-breed, telling her she was ugly, and she would never amount to anything except on her back. I would scale the side of the house and crawl in through the window. Her tears and soft cries gutted me every time.
She thought I had the perfect home life, but one of the many things we shared was fear. Fear is a bitch that never lets go, a five-alarm clinger. You can rule her, or she will own you.
I wanted to beat the shit out of Buck, but he was a hell of a lot bigger than me. I would spoon in behind her and rock her to sleep. When we got older, she called me less and less and I saw her turn in, hiding away from the world. You never forget the first woman who lays in your arms for comfort. I want those days back. I want her back, but I’m going to have to tread lightly. We don’t know each other like we used to.
We pack away the picnic in silence, edged with nervous energy that hangs in the air for different reasons. She keeps looking at me as if she wants to ask me something. I’m clueless to the question or the answer. I take her hand in mine in need of the connection to my past that keeps me grounded and reminds me of where I came from. She pulls her hand away and I keep it locked in my hand.
Kenzie Macallan has launched her first series filled with action, suspense, and secrets with wicked twists and turns. Hot romance is always part of the equation. Her next series, Deep 8, takes readers on a trip around the world.
She studied undergraduate and graduate at schools on the East Coast of the U.S. in fields such as biology, psychology, fine arts, and education. Balancing a full-time job and writing is a struggle but one well worth it.
Kenzie lives with her husband in New England and is a huge dog lover. She has been fortunate enough to travel all over the world to places like Africa, Greece, Switzerland, Holland, France, England and, Scotland.
It’s all led to an overactive imagination. Creativity seems to be part of her soul as she paints portraits and takes photographs. Cooking is not her forte but she can bake up a storm. They have all added to her storytelling especially when writing about strong women and alpha men. She looks forward to adding to her adventures with her readers.
