Your First Peek at Nicki Sosebee #10, LIES

posted in: Book Excerpts, Various Musings | 0

Sadly, it’s been almost two years since I released the last Nicki book.  All that’s about to change, though.  I’m going to do my best to release the remainder of books this year.  Lies, #10 in the series, is coming out on February 29 (I chose that date because February 29 is a rarity!), and I’m writing book #11 now.  But let’s get to it.  First, the blurb:

From here on out, the Nicki Sosebee series is getting darker.

BUCKLE UP.

Like a dog with a bone, Nicki cannot help but continue to pursue realtor-turned-politician Gina McCafferty as the woman persists in making her play for Winchester’s open City Council seat. But Nicki is learning over and over again that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her fair city. Meanwhile, her personal life is topsy-turvy, and a tattoo artist named Hunter makes Nicki’s life a living hell.

Alliances are tested. Lines are drawn. And events are set in motion that will play out in deadly ways…

Next, the excerpt.  Enjoy!  🙂

“Something wrong?”

Nicki realized she was gritting her teeth—not making noise or anything, but definitely clenching them so that her jaw was tense. “Oh, sorry.” She swallowed. “Maybe today I should just get my nose pierced.”

What? She’d lost her mind.

No, this was good. Change was good. Especially now.

Hunter nodded. “That’s not a bad idea. You’ve got a good nose for it.” She snorted then and peals of laughter flowed from her mouth. He gave her a puzzled look.

“Sorry. I write part-time for the Tribune, and my boss has told me I have a nose for news.” She laughed again and he forced a smile. “Sorry. I really have had way too much to drink. Maybe I should leave.”

He touched her forearm. “No, you’re fine. You’re just a bit giddy, and that might be due to a little adrenaline flowing through your veins.”

“Adrenaline?”

“Yeah, as you prep yourself for a little pain.”

“Oh…how bad does that hurt?”

He flipped his hand, palm up, grinning and shrugging, and then he shook his head. “I’ve never had my nose pierced, so I don’t know. Piercing itself, though? Kind of depends on where you’re getting pierced and what your pain tolerance is. I had a shitload to drink before I got pierced, and it didn’t hurt at all.”

“You have a piercing? Where?” Nicki couldn’t see any holes anywhere—not on his ears or face. Maybe his nipples?

He grinned again, standing and extending his hand to her. “A guy’s gotta have a few secrets. Come on. Let’s go get you prepped.”
