Heads up! Excerpt from Relinquish by Sapphire Knight! The blog tour continues…

EXCERPT BUTTON

“He’s still behind us,” Avery yells out and buries her head into my back again.
“Babe, stop looking back there. I have fuckin’ mirrors that can see him!” I holler back and concentrate on the road in front of us.
I wonder what his plan is, following me around. I start to give the throttle a harder push and pick up speed. The wind chops through my hair and I feel Avery’s fingers flex on my stomach. The bike vibrates through my body as I grip the handles tightly. The rumble of the engine grows with the extra shot of fuel sent to it. I glance to the mirror. That fucker is getting closer, I knew this wasn’t some friendly visit. A high pitched scream rings out from Avery and I almost swerve.
“Aaaagh! He has a gun, 2 Piece! Go, go, go!”
As soon as her words register, I give it more gas and roar down the busy street. My gut compresses in anticipation of what’s to come. I get a spike of adrenaline and start to weave in and out of traffic, trying to calm my shaking and not throw Avery off the back.
