Decker and Joy is coming soon. The only thing better than a holiday romance is a holiday romance with kittens! To celebrate the launch of my new North Pole Unlimited series, this sweet romance is only $0.99 until New Year’s Day.
Is that what a bed of nails felt like? Decker had been examining the store’s merchandise, looking to see if E.L.V.I.S. was misplaced behind any of the massive bags of dog food, when an unknown assailant jammed a dozen knives into his back. He was ex-police and a private detective; nobody should have gotten the drop on him. He’d scanned the store when he entered. He was the only person in it, aside from Joy. She was unnervingly pretty with her auburn hair and brown eyes, but she hadn’t registered as a cold-blooded killer.
The razors trying to sever his spine moved. Decker tensed his thighs, preparing to spring backward and crush the attacker against one of the metal shelving racks, when a warm hand fell on the back of his neck. He stilled instantly.
“Don’t move,” Joy whispered.
Decker felt a slight pressure, and then the needles were extracted from his skin, one by one. He slowly stood and wondered if he’d get to the emergency room before he bled to death. One of the blades may have hit an artery.
“Are you okay, sweetie?” Joy asked.
“I’m not sure.” He wasn’t light-headed, and he was moving okay. There was surprisingly little pain. He might make it.
“I was talking to the cat.”
