Will Ian and Becca find her? Or will the reemergence of a long lost love take a hold of their future?
For this special 4th birthday event, I wanted to do more than just a giveaway. I wanted to offer you all a little taste of what happened before Redemption.
Fallen Angel, Sam, fell in love at first sight with young widow, Anne. Their whole story hasn't been told in the Redemption Series, but today, you can read how they met for the very first time. I give you "When Anne Met Sam". Warning: This is not edited.
The pimple-faced recruit finished taking Anne's statement before smiling and exiting the interrogation room.
Anne Swift, a twenty-five-year-old librarian from upstate New York, spent three hours detailing the events of her day to the youngest member of Boston's finest. She knew her story was crazy, she hardly believed it herself, but she thought at very least they could send someone with more than a High School Diploma to interview her.
She continued pulling at the ends of her long auburn hair while she wondered what looney bin they would certainly lock her up in. Demons? Vampires? How could they even exist? She didn't know how, but they most certainly did.
The door to the room slowly opened and closed. From Anne's perspective through the hair that covered her face she could see a tall, lean man with short salt and pepper hair and the most magnetizing blue eyes she had ever seen.
She straightened in her seat as the man sat down across from her. Her fingers crept behind her ear to pull the hair away from her face. When her eyes met his, she was lost.
His lips moved, but she couldn't make sense of any of the words. Finally, the man took it upon himself to take her hand to bring her back into the light of day.
“I'm sorry.” She felt the hairs rise on the back of her neck as the entire surface of her skin erupted in goose bumps. “It's been a long day.”
“Yes, I've heard.” He smirked and let out a soft laugh. “That's why I'm here. I think we can help each other out.”
“I don't know how, but you look a little more put together than the kid they sent in earlier. Are you a shrink or something?” she asked with a quirked eyebrow. He didn't seem like the doctor type, especially since he was still holding her hand.
“No. My name is Sam Fleming. I'm the President of The Manchester Group's Boston offices.”
“Manchester?” Now she was really confused. She remembered the large building with ornate columns and dark windows, but had no idea what went on inside.
“Yes. It was brought to our attention that you were attacked tonight by a . . .” He pulled out a folder to search through some notes. “A man who could turn into black smoke then back into a man.”
“It sounds even crazier when you say it.”
“Believe me, Ms. Swift, you're not the first one to report this problem. If you would be willing to turn this matter over to my staff, I can take you back to my office, and I will explain the steps of the investigation further.”
Anne sat in deep thought for a moment. She was fairly certain that his invitation was some sort of ploy to mess with her mind and throw her into deep psychoanalysis for years. Yet the warmth that flowed from his hand to hers brought trust and acceptance.
“Lead the way, Mr. Fleming.”
