Marco Lumachi is a professional hitman. His name is not Donovan North, and he’s not a detective transferring from New York City to Landstaff Junction, Vermont. But the whole town thinks he is, and if he wants to stay alive, he needs them to keep believing that.
Because the real Donovan North — who happens to look a lot like Marco — was gunned down on the way to his new job, by a rival mob family who thinks they killed the hitman.
Forced to work on the right side of the law, Marco finds himself hunting down a serial killer who’s brutally murdered two women already. Worse, his new “partner” is beautiful, dedicated, and not buying a word of his cover story.
But the man he’s impersonating kept secrets of his own, and what Detective North was hiding could prove deadly … for Marco, and for the innocent women that the killer is still targeting.

Excerpt

 

Prologue

 

New Heights Juvenile Detention Center — Bronx, NY

 

Seventeen years ago

 

I was out in the yard after another pathetic excuse for dinner, checking around to see if anyone had gotten a care package from home so I could muscle in on them and get something decent to eat, when I spotted the new guy over by the outside fence. And I couldn’t look away.

 

There must’ve been a hell of an expression on my face, because Jake Paladino came over and elbowed me, even though I’d punched him for less in the past. “Did you see a ghost, or what?” he wheedled, and then flinched away, clearly remembering too late that I didn’t appreciate being jabbed.

 

I let it go this time, though. I was too fascinated to be angry.

 

“Over there,” I told him with a bare nod toward the fence.

 

Jake followed my gesture, and the perfect bug-eyed jaw-drop that formed on his face almost made me laugh. He looked like a real-life cartoon. Wile E. Coyote, watching the rocket he’d just fired at the Road Runner bounce off a cliff and head back at him full speed.

 

“You got a brother I don’t know about?” Jake finally blurted.

 

I shook my head, my gaze not leaving the newcomer. Apparently it was true what they said: everybody has a lookalike somewhere in the world. And here was mine. The new guy was a mirror, a twin, a clone of me.

 

My doppelganger.

 

Jake shook off the shock first and started bouncing on the balls of his feet, a lunatic grin on his unfortunate face. The scrawny, twitchy kid who’d followed me around like a stray dog since the day I got locked up in this crap place claimed to be the son of a mobster, and swore he was going to introduce me to his father and bring me into the “family business” when we got out of here. But I only had a week left on my sentence, and Jake had six months on his. Plus, he was probably lying about his mob connections.

 

I was considering it, though. If nothing better came along before Jake got out of here, maybe I’d give the little weasel a chance to make good on his claims. Considering my talents, the mob might be a decent fit for my future.

 

Not that any of us in New Heights could have a real future. They called it a youth center, but it was really just a prison with brighter colors — and everybody knew that ex-cons were screwed. Even if they were just kids when they went in.

 

Nobody who came out of this place would ever be considered a child again.

 

“Jesus, look at him. Holy shit.” Jake giggled and almost nudged me again, but then he thought better of it at the last minute. “I bet he’s about to piss his pants over there. Hey, let’s fuck with him.” The jagged grin spread. “You know what? You could do anything, even in front of the security cameras, and just blame it on that guy. We should burn this place down or something. Oh, wait, how about we kill a guard?”

 

“No,” I said sharply. Sometimes Jake had to be corrected like a dog, and it was all I could do not to rub his nose in his own shit. “Leave him alone, for now.”

 

The new guy — my doppelganger — did look unsettled. But unlike Jake, I didn’t believe he was scared. Reserved, maybe. Hanging back, getting the lay of the land. His posture was guarded and self-protective, as if he was expecting some kind of abuse, and that could’ve been interpreted as fear. But I sensed something dark in him.

 

Or maybe I was only projecting my own darkness onto the spitting image of myself.

 

Jake lost interest in the other kid fast once I rebuked him. His face only fell for a few seconds, and then his smile bounced back. “Vince and them are trying to crowd the hoop again,” he said, pointing over at the rundown basketball half-court in the far corner of the yard, where four or five of the younger boys had begun a half-hearted game of Horse. “Want to scare them off?”

 

“Nah. I’m hungry,” I told him. “Go find somebody with a care package. I want good shit, nothing generic or homemade.”

 

Always happy to serve, Jake nodded vigorously and scuttled off. I watched him absently for a few seconds before I returned my attention to the new guy.

 

This time, my doppelganger was looking back. And there was no fear in him at all.

 

There was nothing in him.

 

It really was like looking in a mirror.

GONE by Karyn Good – Release Blitz

Gone Tour Graphic
Gone cover
Series: Aspen Lake Series Book 3
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Gone…but never forgotten.
Ever since a devastating family tragedy seventeen years ago, Grace Bighill has struggled to keep her remaining family from falling apart. Then the discovery of her mother’s body in the woods unearths a connection to a decades old murder case, and Grace is dragged into a politician’s bitter bid for revenge.
Constable Mike Davenport’s days in Aspen Lake are numbered. He’s ready to take his next step up the career ladder somewhere a lot more cosmopolitan. He’s avoided any emotional attachments, despite having fallen hard for a certain stubborn local. But when a body turns up, Mike’s careful intentions collapse in the face of Grace’s grief and her exhaustive efforts to care for her family.
A search for answers leads Grace and Mike down a twisted path proving no one can escape their roots. But someone might die trying.

Excerpt

The music still played but no one listened. They were too busy trying to talk at once.
Mike settled in beside her and his disapproving green eyes scanned her face. He lifted the cloth covering her knee and winced. “You okay?”
Grace flinched as his fingers did a gentle probe. “Welcome to the party.”
“Seems we were a little late getting our invitation.” His expression turned serious. “This may need medical attention.”
“It’s just a scratch.” She tamped down the gooey need threatening to overtake her. Tried to remember it didn’t pay to get sentimental over this particular man.
Her reassurance didn’t stop him from carefully dabbing at her cut. Or from leaning in to get a closer look. “I don’t see any glass, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any in there.”
“I’m fine.” She braced her hands on the floor ready to lift herself up, having had enough attention and being at the center of it.
Mike put his hand on her shoulder and coaxed her back down. “There’s no rush. Take a moment.”
She warmed under his touch and the tender concern she’d secretly, and not so secretly, yearned for since he’d arrived in Aspen Lake two years ago.

Operation Daddy teaser

EXCERPT:
“Where did you get that?” I nod towards the implement, but I know the answer even before he tells me.
“This?” He holds the paddle up. “I made it. I figured it would come in handy.”
“You’re not using it on me,” I say with more confidence than I feel.
“I am. I’m going to bend you over that sofa, pull your pants and panties down and blister your little ass, Mia. But first, you’re going to ask me for it.”
I’m too shocked to immediately reply. “What? As if…”
“You disobeyed me, Mia. You knew what to expect. So, ask your daddy to give it to you.”
“Fuck off.” My hands have begun to shake from fear and adrenaline. I ball them up and hold them defiantly at my sides.
“Ask me, Mia. You could have texted. You could have called, especially if there was trouble. Don’t stand here and pretend you didn’t know this would happen. You knew. You broke the rules.” He pauses. “You know what I think, Mia?” When I don’t answer, he tells me anyway. “I think you want me to spank you. I think you need to be spanked. I think you need to be spanked by someone who cares enough to make you pay for any decision that could hurt you. I think you’ve been searching all your life for a man who will do what I’m about to do.”
“Don’t…” I begin.
“Don’t lie…” he says.
The words die in my throat. I was about to deny it, but I can’t. He’s right. I’m scared out of my fucking mind, but I know that when I bend over that sofa and he takes my pants down, he’ll know the truth I’m trying to hide. And I want him to know. He understands the emotional component of my need but stripping me bare will expose the physical component. The drenched panel of my panties will reveal how excited I am despite my fear.
“Ask me.” Tell him you don’t want it! “Mia, it’s okay to need it.”

Don’t let him know the truth!
“You know this has to be done, baby.”
“Please….” I ignore my inner voice. He’s right. I put myself at risk. And what’s more, I’ve not even told him what happened because I did something really, really stupid. I deserve this and use my own folly to justify what I want. I look up at him, hardly believing the words coming out of my mouth.
“I’ve been a bad girl, Daddy. Please spank me.” His expression doesn’t change. It’s still scary stern, and I don’t resist as he pushes me over the arm of the sofa. He lays the paddle on the sofa and I stare at it as Ramsey hooks his fingers into the waistband of my shorts and pulls them down along with my panties. When they reach just above my knees, he stops and I don’t have to look back to know he’s seen that I’ve soaked them, that between my legs he can see my labia, innocently smooth but slightly spread and wet, the inner lips visible and visibly slick with arousal.
“Do you think I’m terrible?” I ask, looking back. My face is flushed with shame, but what I see makes me think I might be falling in love with the man about to spank me for the second time.
His eyes are fatherly, compassionate, understanding. “No, little girl,” he says. “You don’t have a damn thing to be ashamed of.” He nods to the sofa. “Hold on. This is going to hurt.”

Excerpt

Heart pounding, I panted breathlessly, “Cole! I’m-I’m not who you th-think I am!” I scraped his scalp with my nails, bowing sharply beneath his mouth. Oh, sweet Jesus, he was going to kill me with pleasure!
Breathing hard, he pulled his mouth off my nipple and looked up at me with surprising clarity in his eyes, his dark expression stamped with raw arousal. “I know exactly who you are,” he grated hoarsely. “I’ve known since I pulled you beneath me.”
What? I took a second to process what he’d said, or to at least try. I was so turned on that it felt as if I were on some life-altering drug, and I was, in a way–I was high on Cole. “We-We can’t do this,” I whispered, while at the same time asking myself why it was that we couldn’t.
His grin was pure sex. “Looks like we are.”
“But . . . you thought I was someone else,” I reminded him. “What about her?”
He released a frustrated breath. “Can we talk about this later? I’m right in the middle of something.”
I was not going to be a convenient fill-in for another woman, no matter how turned on I was. No matter how hot Cole was. “Listen, jerk, when a man makes love to me, I’d at least like to know that he knows it’s me he�s making love to.”
His body vibrated with laughter against me. “I don’t make love, baby. I fuck.”
I felt a surge of anger in response to his flippant attitude. “Well, then find someone else to fuck,” I hissed, trying to wiggle out from beneath him. Cole was a big man, and he was heavy. Bumping my hips to try to force him to move proved to be a dumb move, because all it managed to do was reveal how fucking huge and hard his cock was.
Cole grunted in response and dropped his head back onto my breasts. I began to wiggle wildly, afraid of where this was going.
Afraid of myself.
“Get off!”
“Jesus, wait a fucking minute, will you?” he growled as if he were in pain, pressing my body down to hold me still.
I stilled. “I’ll give you ten seconds.”
His mouth was against my breast, and the feel of his smile on my flesh caused a shiver to ripple through my body.

Lessons for His Bride tablet

EXCERPT:

Smiling down at his sweet little bride, he cupped the side of her face, the skin of her cheek smooth and creamy against his palm. She looked up at him with eyes wide and trusting. “The first part of your lesson in kissing,” he said, his thumb gently stroking her bottom lip, “is to keep your lips pliable but firm. Place a kiss upon my thumb and I shall check your level of pliability.”

The tiny pink tip of her tongue slipped out and wetted her lips, but scrupulously avoided the pad of his thumb. Her gaze remained on his and she nodded solemnly before pursing her lips and pressing them against his thumb.

Holy mother of god. Never in all his medical training had he been informed of the highly erotic nature of a man’s thumbs, but her kiss upon his sent a tingle of heated desire flying through him and his manhood stirred inside his trousers. He pressed back with his thumb and she took the tip of it between her lips with a delicate suck and he fought back a moan.

He gently retracted his thumb and ended the contact. “Very good,” he said, his voice shaky.

Her face was flushed and her eyelids had drooped to half mast.

“Well, you did very nicely, Seraphina. I can see you are a natural at kissing.”
