Teaser Tuesday (Mystic 3: Deception)

Before you say it, I know, I’ve been slacking on blogging. I have no excuse save for lame ones, so I’ll spare you the excuses and employ a teaser to win you back. Bwahahaha!

This isn’t a long teaser, but I’m working on a way to bring you even more exclusive and extra content, so bear with me as I align the stars.

Now, without further ado, here’s a teaser of DECEPTION – Book 3 in the MYSTIC series.

“I came to see if you need anything,” Finley returned. “Despite what you think, I worry about you and would like to help.”

“Well I don’t want your worry, and I get all the help I need from my family.”

“I can give you things the rest of them can’t. Will you not give me a chance to prove it?”

“No.”

“You didn’t even think about it.”

“I don’t need to.”

“Come on, Layla. Stop being so cold. I’m trying to help here.”

Caitrin’s pipe disappeared as he leaned forward. “She’s told you no, Finley, and she’s clearly expressed she doesn’t want your company, so if you insist on staying out here, you need to find another place to sit.” He waved a hand toward the table, summoning an extra chair. “You’re welcome to our food and a seat, but take them away from my granddaughter.”

Finley stared at Layla for several more seconds, watching her eyes and mouth. Then he sighed and straightened. “I’ll move, but I’m staying on the lawn, so if you change your mind, I’m only a shout away.”

Layla shrugged and averted her gaze. “As long as you keep your distance, I don’t care where you are.”

He took a deep breath as he examined her profile. Then he left the circle and sat on the ground, his gaze aimed at her face.
