Zach and Liam’s eyes filled with pity and he knew he had to finish.

Jake continued as though he was reciting a story. That was the only way he could get through the whole thing, the only way he could relive those moments. “When I got back to the parlor. I went immediately to Elizabeth and got down on my knees beside her. The bastard colonel shot her in the chest, but she was still breathing. She opened her eyes. They were filled with terror until she realized who I was.” His voice cracked. He paused. It was too fresh. The memory too new and painful. Rage filled him.

“Jake,” she said to me. “I tried to stop them, I tried,”

“Shhh,” I told her. “You’re going to be fine. It’s all right.”

“I tried…tried to stop them…stop John but,” she whispered. “I love you, Jake.”

“She closed her eyes and took her last breath in my arms. I held her for I don’t know how long. Finally, I picked her up and laid her on the sofa. I went back to the captain, made sure he was dead and then looked through his pockets to find out anything I could about the colonel.”

  1. Oh, My Gosh, Cindy. Now I have to read the whole thing. When’s it out? January? That’s too long! :0 Best of luck with it!! And that cover is fantastic. P.S. I hate that Elizabeth had to die.

  2. I can imagine how this scene plays into the title, Redeemed Rebel. In my fantasies, Jake’s heart probably turned to stone and his mind to revenge when Elizabeth was murdered. The title is about how another woman will come along and help him past the sorrow and hate, and take him back down the path of love. I won’t know if I’m right until I read it. Wonderful insight into your new book, Cindy! Merry Christmas!

  3. OMG, Cindy… It makes me want to cry! I can picture it so perfectly in my mind. I feel so bad for Jake! This is a fabulous teaser! You are so good and writing, it doesn’t matter if the setting is in space or the West or somewhere inbetween, you have a great gift! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what happens next!!
