Sometimes all you get is a tiny flash…

Cale Mattox is the first of the Astral Guardians to find his artefact. The woman who wears it has her own past she’s running from. Taylor Kenyon is tired, the family who wants her dead is beginning to gain on her. This man, Cale, gives her a sense of comfort she’s never had before and creates feelings no one else has. Together they will fight the darkness which approaches. Can he protect her as well as convince her that he needs more than just the artefact?

Stirring the sugar into her tea, she stared at the man sharing the table with her. He had incredible blue eyes which were focused intently on her. She blinked. “Something on my face?”

“Just wondering about your necklace.”

Warning spiked up her spine. But she didn’t lose her composure, it wasn’t in her to do so. “What about it?” She sipped the brew and wished she were able to truly enjoy it.

“It’s unique. Where did you get it?”

“My grandmother gave it to me before she died.” She touched the chain but didn’t reveal the pendant. “She told me it would bring me luck.” A sorrowful laugh. “I’m still waiting on that. But it’s part of her and I love it for that reason alone.”

Her grandmother had said a whole lot of other things, but she wasn’t going to share them with this man. He didn’t ask to see it, which had her wondering if perhaps he wasn’t another after her. A thought that was nice, although brief, for it vanished when he looked in the direction of the two men who’d definitely been after her.

I have to get away from him.

“What’s your name?” he asked. “Just realised we haven’t been introduced to one another.”


“Cale. Cale Mattox.”

Another practised smile. “Nice to meet you.” She drank more of her tea and chatted with him about being in France. He’d been skiing, as she’d been. Same lodge, and how surprising it was they hadn’t run into each other there. “Excuse me, I need to use the facilities.”

“Then we can get a taxi.”

She stood and gripped the handle of her suitcase. “I still have to go to baggage claim. We could meet there.”

He sent another glance to where she knew the men were. “Sounds good to me. See you in a bit, Taylor.”

Not if I have anything to say about it. She gave a nod and walked to the nearest bathroom. She sank against the wall and rubbed her arms as she tried to figure out what step to take next.

“You okay, sweetie?” A cleaning lady asked her.

“No. There are two men following me and they’re making me really nervous. I also think another man is, but I’m not positive.”

The woman’s face grew dark and thunderous. She pulled a radio off her belt and spoke into it. “What do they look like?”

She gave the men’s description and after a brief hesitation, gave Cale’s as well. If it was only her imagination that had her thinking he was with them, well, that was her mistake. But she couldn’t risk it.
