PROWL (Prowl Trilogy #1)

          Seventeen-year-old Mackenzie Smith is sent away to spend a boring summer at her grandma’s. But then she meets Wesley. He tells her exactly what she wants to hear and has information about her past that no one else knows. It’s almost like he can read her mind.
           Only Wesley isn’t who he seems.

         By the time Mackenzie discovers his true identity it may be too late. She’s in too deep and he won’t let her go. Now Mackenzie must call on the strongest power of all in order to save her life.


Excerpt from Prowl

“Hey, Isaac, let’s go in there.” I pointed to the shop and hurried toward it. He followed behind me. The minute I opened the door, cool air swept over me. I sighed with relief as I stepped inside. The place was small and cluttered with a hodgepodge of plates, cups, jewelry, paintings, toys, hats, clothes, quilts and furniture. It kind of reminded me of home. I weaved my way through the store, taking in the eclectic variety. The musty smell tickled my nostrils and I held back a sneeze. I picked up a forest green felt hat with a large black feather sticking out of the top and placed it on the top of my head. I caught my reflection in a nearby mirror and let out a giggle.

“Hey, Isaac, check it out.”

He came up behind me, filling the rest of the mirror. He eyed me for a minute and smiled. Something about his expression stopped me cold. I stopped giggling and stood perfectly still.

“You look beautiful. You always do. No matter what you wear.” He took the hat off my head and plopped it on his. Then he laughed. “Now that looks funny.”

I swallowed hard and turned away. The itching started back up and I realized it had nothing to do with the heat. I rolled back my sleeve and saw angry welts rising up on my arm. Isaac was getting under my skin, no matter how hard I tried not to let him.

After the antique shop we got sandwiches and Isaac refused to let me pay. I insisted on buying my own ice cream cone when we stopped at Snooks Ice Cream though. No need to make it seem more like a date than it already did. The rash was growing. I’d sworn off boys for a reason. They always broke my heart and I worried that if Isaac ever broke mine I’d end up like Humpty Dumpty; broken so badly I’d never be able to able to put the pieces back together again. I needed to get away from him and I needed to do it fast.
