1 . A real Thriller!
Posted June 23, 2010 by Valerie , SurreyYou won't be able to put this book down once you start reading it. It is fast paced, exciting and filled with intrigue and hot passion at the same time. It reads like a Ken Follet novel - one of my all time favorites. Kaylea Cross definitely tops my favorite auther list now. Can't wait to read her next book.

Excerpt from Cover of Darkness by Kaylea Cross
Her lungs burned, her thigh muscles straining under the burst of adrenaline shooting through her veins.
Two soldiers jumped out of the chopper with their rifles up, and her heart gave a great leap of fear. She almost stopped, but remembered Dec's warning and kept sprinting. The men fired past her, the muzzles of their guns spewing fire in the darkness. The bullets sang as they whizzed past her, some close enough she felt their heat. Was Dec still out there behind her?
Halfway there. Keep running.
One of the soldiers motioned with his arm, waving it toward the ground as she drew closer. Don't stop! Keep going. He was yelling something, but she couldn't hear him over the rotors. What was he saying?
His arm kept moving, and as she drew nearer, she saw the urgency on his face, saw his mouth move.
Terror froze her. Her heart rang in her ears. Everything morphed into slow motion. Instinctively covering her head with her arms, she dove. A blast exploded behind her, rendering her blind and deaf. She plowed into the ground as sharp and hot objects peppered her arm and back, like she'd been stung by a swarm of angry bees.
Disoriented, terrified, she lurched up onto her knees, saw the soldier from the helicopter running flat out toward her. The wounds burned like hellfire, and something warm was dripping over her skin. Blood. Her blood.
Pushing to her feet, she staggered a step, then fell flat. She scrambled up again, determined not to die out here in the desert when she was so close to safety.
