Are you ready for some sexy sharks?
Yes, our sharks are even sexier than #leftshark. You didn’t think it was possible, but we’ve done it.
Don’t believe me? Pick up a copy of Redemption for yourself and see! The second instalment of our Sea Assassins Trilogy is available on Amazon today for only 2.99, or you can read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. It can be read as a standalone, though we recommend reading Betrayal first just so you don’t miss out on anything.
I know what you’re thinking—what’s this all about? (Besides sharks, obviously.) Redemption will take you on a fun, sun-soaked journey of discovery, as one man learns to love and one woman learns that not everything is always what it seems… Check out the synopsis below, and keep reading for an excerpt.
Sophia Davies is having the time of her life.
She lives with her two best friends in a city she loves and every day is a new adventure. Case in point, stumbling into her bedroom after a great night out and finding her ultimate childhood crush waiting for her.
But things have changed since the last time Sophia saw Nate. For starters, she now knows what he does for a living. And there’s the whole shark shifter thing…
Nathan Redman is burning.
He thought his mistakes would fade away with time, but the closer he comes to taking leadership of his clan, the more they sear into his skin. Revenge is the best cure for any wound, which is why Nathan’s heading out to see an old friend.
It’s nothing personal, really.
Getting close to Sophia is no problem. Killing her on the other hand…
And now, a little taste…
Nathan had watched the girls leave the apartment around 10:00pm and knew he may be in for a long wait. It wasn’t until nearly 2:20am that he heard the front door open followed by a symphony of giggles.
He tensed. This was it.
Sophia would come to her room soon, and once she did he’d break her neck and be done with it. It would be quick and painless for her, and it would even the score for him. Gabriel would know he had lost to Nathan in the end. He would finally know the taste of defeat.
Nathan expected Sophia to come to her room right away, but instead he heard excited chatter and music from the other side of the apartment, as well as the clinking of plates. The girls were having food after the bar. Sophia’s last meal.
Nathan felt a pang of something sharp in his chest, but he pushed past it. There wasn’t time for second thoughts. He was here now. He would do what he always did—go to that dark spot deep inside of him, the spot he retreated to to get the job done. Sophia was just another job, only instead of being paid in cash, he’d be paid in peace.
The music eventually halted. There were sounds of cleaning; they were stacking the plates. Then, finally, they wished each other goodnight. A set of footsteps approached the door, the handle turned. This was it.
Sophia slipped inside the room without turning on the light, which suited Nathan just fine. The traces of light in the room refracted off her ridiculous glittery shoes, making her feet shimmer with each movement. Her short skirt was tight and showed off her long, toned legs. She wore her hair pulled back in a high ponytail, and he admired the angles of her face, the proud line of her nose.
This was his chance.
She closed her door, muffling the sounds of her friends heading to their respective bedrooms. She hadn’t seen him yet. She was too busy trying to shake one of her heels loose, which went flying across the room and rebounded off the bed with a thump. Next came the other. Nathan didn’t know why he was immobile, but he was mesmerized. She looked the part of a beautifully developed woman, but the way she took her shoes off was idiotic and childish. She’d have to go pick them up afterward. Then again, based on the state of her room, he realized she probably wouldn’t.
The second shoe came off. It sailed toward Nathan, headed right for his face. He caught it reflexively, not thinking in time to duck and let it go past him. Sophia stood up straight for the first time and stared in the direction her shoe had gone flying. She looked confused; she was trying to figure out what her shoe had hit that was so quiet. Her hand reached for the light.
Fuck. Why hadn’t he killed her yet?
The light flared in the small space. Nathan shifted his eyes back a moment too late, and the sudden brightness blinded him for a half second. He hesitated.
And in that half second, Sophia screamed.
