Teaser Tuesday with Chris Redding!

Today’s Teaser Tuesday is from Blonde Demolition from Chris Redding.

Enjoy & Comment!

You just can’t hide from the past…
Mallory Sage lives in a
small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always
wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past
life as an agent for Homeland Security.
Former partner and lover, Trey
McCrane, comes back into Mallory’s life. He believes they made a great team
once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don’t have much choice. Paul
Stanley, a twisted killer and their
old nemesis, is back.
Framed for a bombing and
drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to
trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding
another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running
out.
EXCERPT:
 The dream had come out of the blue
for firefighter Cal Stedman. He didn’t put much stock in the everyday dreams
people had, but he knew this one meant something. He’d been tired. More tired
than he should have been and came home early from setting up the fair at his
firehouse.
Maybe that was why he’d dreamed.
Having lost his wife five years
ago, he now lay alone in bed. His bones ached from the physical labor of moving
cinderblocks and putting up snow fencing around his beloved beer tent.
The dream rolled around in his
mind. The woman in it…
I
thought I’d put her out of my mind a long time ago. I did worship her. Too bad
she left me when I went into the military.

He shifted onto his side, noting
that darkness had fallen while he’d been asleep. He saw midnight on his clock.
“You have a child,” the
dream woman had said.
But he didn’t. He and his wife had
tried for years with no heirs.
Why
would I dream about a child at this late date in life?

He groaned at his ailing muscles,
feeling his own mortality in their hum. Maybe it was that very sense of his
growing old and closer to death that led him to think about a child. One he
hadn’t had with his wife.
The
whole time I was a cop, I never felt this vulnerable
, this…mortal.
His eyes drifted closed as his mind
returned to dreamland.
What
if I do have a child?

Chris Redding lives in New
Jersey with her husband, two kids, one dog and three rabbits. She graduated from
