The Pain Season
Book II of the Covalent Series
"A commendable follow-up with otherworldly action, down-to-earth melodrama, and sensuality in between." -- Kirkus Reviews
What would you do if you discovered that angels are real?
Tonight's the night. Rainer Barakiel is going to tell me all his secrets. I thought I'd be excited, but I feel like someone shoved a knife into my gut.
Heh. Fitting, considering I met Rainer because of his expertise in edged weapons. The daggers used in that ritual sacrifice became our best lead thanks to him. What kind of omen is it, that I met the love of my life because someone found a human spleen in the bushes?
I didn't expect someone like him. When he opened his door I couldn't talk, I was so stunned. God, how I flirted with him. Hell of a way for an FBI agent to act. This whole relationship is a hell of a way for an FBI agent to act. I didn't want to face that he was hiding things from me.
What if he has something to do with this murder?
I'm being paranoid. He's denied being a criminal and I believe him. I don't see how my instincts could be so wrong. He can't be bad. He can't.
He's hiding things from me, but he loves me. I feel it. I feel it. Maybe he didn't expect to fall in love with me, but he did, and now he wants out. He's going to confess, leave it all behind. For me.
C'mon, O'Gara. Get ahold of yourself.
I wonder, after he tells me all his secrets, will this become a wacky story we love to tell? Or a story I tell only to myself, alone in a stale-smelling apartment, stewing in pain? The story of how my heart got damaged beyond repair.
