I am beginning a new weekly series entitled Teaser Tuesday. Each Tuesday, I'll be providing a short excerpt from one of my books.
This week's teaser is from Secrets of a Dangerous Woman. Irishman Dylan Maguire, a CIA operative, is speaking with Vicki Boyd, his lover and a CIA psychic spy.
"What was that text message really about?" Vicki asked.
"Sam," Dylan said. "I'm on standby tonight."
He shrugged. "I don't know. I never know what he's gonna have me do. Sometimes I'm injurin' a man just to hear him talk. Other times I'm pretendin' to be someone I'm not..."
"We need to talk."
"Why'd you say that?"
"I didn't hear m'self say anythin'."
"Yes, you did. You breathed strange."
"Are we micromanagin' the way I breathe now?"
"There's something on my mind."
"Ooh," he said.
"There you go again."
"It's just when a woman you're livin' with says there's somethin' on her mind in that tone o' voice, it can mean only three thin's. She wants a ring. She wants a baby. Or she wants somebody to move out. And it's usually not 'er."
