Author Q&A Read an Excerpt

You saw me before I saw you.

A girl: Gemma, at the airport,
on her way to a family vacation.

You had that look in your eyes.

A guy: Ty, rugged, tan, too old,
oddly familiar, eyes blue as ice.

Like you wanted me.

She steps away. For just a second.
He pays for her drink. And drugs it.

Wanted me for a long time.

He takes her, before she
even knows what's happening.
To sand and heat.
To emptiness and isolation.
To nowhere.
And expects her to love him.
