Facade Teaser

  Excerpt   Ten years ago… THE STANDING OVATION. Erik Renevant and the rest of his band, Spectre, stood off stage watching the standing ovation. The clapping continued until it took on a chant-like rhythm. Everyone there was waiting for one thing, the final song, the one that came after the standing ovation. He glanced at his band mates. There was an exact moment when one gave in, returned to the stage and performed the song the fans came to hear. The time was now, and Upton, their drummer, grabbed his sticks and went first. The crowd roared with excitement as Upton took the throne. Once seated, Phil, their bassist, went next. Though rock music seemed chaotic and random, there was a definite ritual to everything. Nash, Erik’s best friend and Spectre’s lead guitarist, saluted him, and instrument in hand, jogged out to the stage. Erik waited a minute more. Everyone waited for the lead singer, and when the exact right frenzy took over the audience and the band began to play the beginning notes of their penultimate song, Shadow Light, he came out, taking his time to let the crowd relax, take them in and let them take him in. Perfectly timed pyrotechnics shot flames with each one of his footsteps and he made his way center stage. The music he wrote throbbed in time with his heartbeat and at last he sang the rock ballad that made him a superstar. His song spoke of love, loss and of saying goodbye. Every person in that stadium felt they owned those words. At last, the song ended, leaving the thousands of people in silent awe. He and his bandmates took one final bow. Now they would disappear in a wall of fire, a perfect end for a band named after a ghost, a stunt he personally designed. Erik never made it to his mark before his world exploded. The flames shot him in the face, heat raged through him, burning and melting him, and his bandmates screamed as the stage collapsed.

Release Blitz - Reckless Heat by Lynn Raye Harris

Reckless Heat
Reckless Heat
A Hostile Operations Team Prequel
He’s my best friend. He’s everything I ever wanted. And he doesn’t know how I feel. I have three weeks left to tell him before he leaves this place forever…
There’s only one way I know how to do that. I have to give him what I’ve never given anyone. I’m going to ask him to be my first… Matt Girard is the guy every girl wants. Rich, handsome, and popular, his future is brighter than the sun. Evie Baker comes from the wrong side of town. She loves Matt desperately, but he only sees her as his tomboy best friend instead of the young woman she’s blossomed into. Until one fateful night when a reckless dare changes everything…
'I’m still coming to terms with this, still trying to figure out what it means for Matt and me. As if there is a Matt and me.
There never will be now.
I pinch the bridge of my nose and work on breathing. “He said we’ll always be friends, that he’ll stay in touch with me.”
Julie sighs. “Well, that’s something anyway. And he probably will. The two of you have been friends forever.”
“I don’t want to be friends.” I clutch my fist to my chest where it hurts so badly. “I want him to feel what I feel, Jules. I want him to ache for me, to need me…”
My throat hurts. I can’t tell anyone else this. But Jules understands.
“I know, Evie.”
I close my eyes and roll my head around on my neck, easing the tension. “Three more weeks. He leaves right after graduation.”
I still have another year to go before I graduate. I mean, I’ve always known I’ll spend my senior year at Rochambeau High without Matt Girard—but I thought he’d be at LSU, close enough to come home on weekends. Close enough to visit if Mama lets me borrow the car sometimes.
He would realize someday what I already know—that we’re meant to be together. I’ve always been certain of it and I’m willing to be patient.
But how is he going to do that if we never see each other anymore? What if he meets someone else? What if he forgets me?
I have to do something before I lose him forever. But I don’t know what…"
