Excerpt



DEATH IN TROUT FORK

by Dolores Kimball (writing as D. M. O’Byrne)



Jack and I jogged along the trail behind the cabins just before sunrise the next morning. The sky was lightening, but the mountains blocked the sun’s rays, and the path was shrouded in near darkness. Jack trotted along next to me in his harness, his paws making no sound on the soft bed of pine needles that covered the trail surface. We stopped for a breather near the rock I had sat on the previous day, and I noticed Gil about fifty yards away, standing hip deep in the creek in his waders, casting his line upstream and watching it float by. He looked up briefly at me, then he turned away again.

I waited for Jack, who was digging in the dirt next to the trail, no doubt looking for a convenient place for a potty stop. After a few minutes, he was still digging, so I pulled on his leash. “C’mon, Jack. Let’s go.”

But he resisted and continued digging, growling and becoming more and more agitated. I pulled on the leash again, harder this time, but he wouldn’t budge.

I bent over and picked him up. “Okay, if you insist.”

I peered down at the hole he had made. Something didn’t seem quite right. I squatted to get a closer look, the cat squirming in my arms. I gasped and jumped back, lost my balance, and sat down hard. The taste of adrenaline flooded my mouth as I stared at three fingers protruding from the hole, the bright purple nail polish absurdly out of place among the rust-colored pine needles.

Jessica I was eight months pregnant and on the run from my ex when I met the love of my life. The Navy Seal who saved me in more ways than one. Chase made his way into my life, completely turning it upside down. He made me feel safe and gave me so many things I’d never fathomed I could have. He became a dad to my son. But just as my life started to feel perfect, I was hit with a bombshell. The mafia my ex belonged to had a bounty on my head. Chase My life truly started the day I met Jessica, and I vowed to keep her and our son safe. But now they wanted her. And even worse, they were after my son.

They tried taking it all away, but they quickly realized it was a battle I would never lose. Cherishing His Forever FULL

EXCERPT REVEAL:

Chase takes a washcloth with soap and dips it under the faucet. Then he does something that surprises me. He starts to wash off my legs and feet for me. I am speechless. This is different; it’s very intimate as he slowly, tenderly washes me as if I were fragile. My stomach flips as the butterflies swarm. “Chase,” I whisper. He looks up at me. “What?” I can tell he is confused at my sudden emotion. He has no clue how amazing he truly is. “You’re just amazing and oh so sweet.” I touch his cheek, running my thumb across his cheekbone. “I am being spoiled.” He smiles slightly, just enough for his dimple to pop through. “You deserve to be spoiled, angel.” I close my eyes as his words warm me to my soul, and I lean forward and rest my head on his shoulder. I take a deep breath. His scent is intoxicating. “You will never fully understand how big of a blessing you are in my life and Hunter’s, words can never express it.” I feel him stiffen and he pulls me back. I can tell my words really affected him. He closes his eyes and lifts me off the counter, pulling me into his arms and just holding me. I wrap my legs around him, he kisses the side of my head, and we stand like this for a long time, until he sets me down. “Thank you, sweetheart.” He holds my hand. “I will never forget.” He lets my hand go and I hold my chest as I walk into my room. I am in deep, deep trouble, because Chase has done something to me, and it’s getting worse and worse every single day. Pre-Order is available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2syn29e.

Boston, Massachusetts

Eleanor MacAllister stood outside of her parents’ apothecary and watched as a crowd began to gather around another home of another colonist loyal to King George. She had heard the noise of the group and stepped outside to see what the commotion was. Watching as the British troops lined up in front of Ebenezer Turnball residence and took aim at the mob forming in from of them. Leaning against the door, she stood and observed as her father and mother closed the shop early so they would not become a causality themselves. There was something different about tonight; it felt different; she could feel something in the pit of her stomach that told her they needed to leave and leave now. The crowd size grew as did the number of redcoats that lined up in front of the angry colonists. Boston, with every passing day, became more and more resistant to the crown. 

“Eleanor, come.” Peggy MacAllister motioned to her daughter to follow. Her father George MacAllister took Peggy by the hand attempting to pull the woman inside and through the back door of the shop. 

“Eleanor, come, hurry now.” Peggy MacAllister pled, but Eleanor was resistant and stood her ground. 

“Go, mother, I will be fine. I will stay out of sight. I promise.” 

Eleanor watched as the crowd grew and the danger ever increasing. Maybe it was the danger that excited her, she wasn’t sure, but she did know that this night would to end well. Her family was often the subject of many of these mobs, but on this night, she was a bystander. 

It was only a few months when the mob turned on Eleanor and her family, Many knew of her family’s history or had heard the stories of her grandmother The Witch Brianna MacShane and some in Boston were convinced that Eleanor and her mother Peggy had brought their craft to the Americas. Eleanor would often hear stories of her grandmother, and yes it was true, in a sense, that the MacShane’s were well-known healers from their homeland and that their knowledge had been passed from generation to generation for as long as the sun and moon had risen.

Peggy MacAllister would tell the story of her great grandmother as Eleanor would write the stories down in her book- the book passed down from generation to generation. The Journal contained the stories of the MacShane’s, the Healers of Ulster, County Donegal and of the O’Neill Dynasty. The book was a window into the history of her family. The stories contained within the pages, went from as far back as time itself, a time where myths and legends were born. A time when healers were not persecuted but instead revered for their knowledge, celebrated for their healing abilities and often held in high esteem. Those days long gone, the stories within the book told their stories- stories of pain, of loss, of love, triumph, and sorrow. Each passage contained passages all penned by one scribe- the keeper of the book for each generation. Now, it was Eleanor’s turn; she would scribe for her mother as well as herself just as her mother and grandmother had done for their mothers and grandmothers.

Excerpt

Greyson

Seatbelt secure, I stepped hard on the peddle. The car lunged forward and the Kona Blue Mustang reached 60 miles per hour within seconds, and I continued to push the limits. I pressed the clutch to the floor and maneuvered the shifter. Instantly, the low rumble of the exhaust turned to a powerful roar. Bold lights and a vast skyline were blocked by high-rises, becoming blurred lines beyond the windshield. The closer I moved to my destination, the further I drifted from a world of darkness. With corruption looming behind me, I welcomed the light dangling in front of me.
Her light
My flight got in late to JFK, so now I had to deal with a shitload of traffic heading into Midtown Tunnel. But then a black Yukon Denali drew down on my bumper and flashed its lights about ten times. I let the idiot have fun until we got out of there. From every angle, traffic held steady, but I couldn’t let other drivers keep me from getting to her. At 9:30 on a Friday night, I didn’t have time for this shit.
I caught a break and swerved out of the lane; the Denali followed, lights blinking like before. This was the shit, the childish shit that transferred from childhood to adulthood. And unfortunately, I knew the asshole: my brother, Detective Brendan Michaels.
Not now! Not today! I caressed the wheel, squeezing tighter than before. This was nonsense, but I wasn’t up for the bullshit tonight. So I flashed him off and kept going. Now wasn’t the time for complex family issues. Plotting out my route, I slowly began ramping up the speed.
A red SUV sat in the left lane, in front of me, while a shuttle limo tried to box me in on the right. Dropping my speed enough to force the asshole to pass, I shifted down and cut behind him, skipping over to the second lane in time to trap the idiot trailing me. This was the type of shit that always occurred whenever I made it to the city because he had connections to track me down once I entered his state and mostly importantly, enjoyed riding his younger brother. But I needed the next 2 or 3 hours, just for me and the girl that haunted my dreams.
Holding the wheel steady while keeping the pace, I said, “Call CeCe!” Saying her name nearly took my breath away. If nothing else, life thought me that first love spoiled a man for everyone else.
Thumbing the wheel and waiting to hear her shriek my name, I didn’t breathe. Honestly, I’ve faced off with some of the worse scum to walk this earth, yet she had the ability to crush me. The guys I went up against could only hurt the outer me; CeCe, on the other hand, could shred me from the inside out.
“Greyyy!” Her voice snapped me out of the daydream. “Greyyy!”
“Hey girl,” I muttered, scared like hell of sounding too anxious or desperate. I even sat up in the seat, gripping tighter on the wheel with both hands.
“Don’t tell me you’re not coming, Greyson! The last time you were in town, you promised every month. How long has it been?”
“Ce—“
“No, no you better not disappointment me!”
“I wouldn’t ever do that, CeCe.”
“Don’t patronize me, Greyson!”
“My flight was late, and I’m in traffic. Have you left home yet?” With each word, I tried like hell to slow the heartbeats.
“I’m already on my way,” she sang into the line and it took me back to when we were little kids. I could imagine her lips—the way they’d poke out, pointing at me. And when she’d tilt up her head to gaze into my eyes, looking me full on, pupils diving past the barriers most girls would be too afraid to challenge.
“I can pick you up. Need more time? Where—”
“No… No… And hell no! You’re meeting me, as planned. I need a friendly face. It’s been a long week, Grey. You owe me tonight …” While she went on and on about my disappearing acts, I shot to the exit. Flooring the pedal, then quickly easing into a smooth stop at East 35th Street.
“Celeste, I don’t know what the hell you just said.”
She laughed and I could picture her shaking her head, swooping her long, blonde hair from shoulder to shoulder in a flirty way. I know this girl; shit, I’ve known this girl since her arguments were nothing more than whiny sentences. I’ve known her since those big, blue eyes were even bigger; when her nosey, little ass would come all the way over to my parent’s house, up the street, just to find out what I was doing so she could have something incriminating over my head at any given time. I’ve always known her likes and dislikes, even more than she’d admit to herself even.
That’s the girl I fell for.
I don’t know exactly when it happened, but it did. I fell in love with my best friend’s sister, and I don’t know how to turn off the feelings because something inside of me wanted to go against a childish promise and make her mine. Ours might’ve been a perfect love, if we were different people—if she wasn’t his sister and I wasn’t the man I’d grown into.
