WW4BB & GCR Presents: A Book Highlight of Second Position by Katherine Locke

9 Aug 2015.


Second Position by Katherine Locke

New Adult, Contemporary Romance



Four years ago, a car accident ended Zedekiah Harrow’s ballet career and sent Philadelphia Ballet principal dancer Alyona Miller spinning toward the breakdown that suspended her own. What they lost on the side of the road that day can never be replaced, and grief is always harshest under a spotlight...

Now twenty-three, Zed teaches music and theatre at a private school in Washington, D.C. and regularly attends AA meetings to keep the pain at bay. Aly has returned to D.C. to live with her mother while trying to recover from the mental and physical breakdown that forced her to take a leave of absence from the ballet world, and her adoring fans.

When Zed and Aly run into each other in a coffee shop, it’s as if no time has passed at all. But without the buffer and escape of dance—and with so much lust, anger and heartbreak hanging between them—their renewed connection will either allow them to build the together they never had... or destroy the fragile recoveries they've only started to make.

Book One of the District Ballet Company




Excerpt

Zed

Some things you’ll never erase from your memory. In front of me, the ice-blond braid swinging on a primly dressed woman’s back makes me sway on the spot. I know that braid, and it doesn’t belong here. Not where I am. Anywhere but here, here where it brings with it a tide of memories I’ve worked hard to bury. Images, bright and sharp and very red, slam around in my head, and I curl my fingers into my palm, hard. The pain pushes the memories back where they belong.


My first thought is, It can’t be her.


My second thought is, Oh, God, please don’t let her see me walk.


It might not be her. Lots of women have blond hair, and a lot of women dye their hair to get her particular shade of gold. Three people between us, and I can’t see her profile. I study her neck, her shoulders, the way she stands. I’m almost positive it is her. A certain unmistakable, accidental grace to the way her hands shake when she unsnaps her wallet.


“Small tea, one orange tea bag, one vanilla. I’ll pay for both.”


Her tea order hasn’t changed in the four years since I’ve seen her, or the eleven years I’ve known her. Her voice is a little smaller, a reflection of her body. But she still likes to taste things vibrantly. And she’s the only one ordering a hot drink in the late July heat.


In the last memory I have of her, she’s stretched out next to me in bed, wearing nothing but a smile. She glowed, on and off the stage. This girl, at the counter now, is anything other than bright. She moves dully. She used to lean on counters and flirt, regardless of who was at the register. She hasn’t flipped her hair once. Everything I know is in the past tense.


I almost say her name, almost call out to her against all my better instincts. Then they ask her for the name for the cup, and I hear her say, “Aly.”

Blurb: The Ringer's Masquerade Series features all three full length novels: Devil's Lullaby, Death's Melody and Angel's Requiem. 
Sebastian's haunting gaze penetrated my very being, revealing my secrets, fears, and desires. My name rolled off his tongue, tempting me to take exactly what I hungered for. His world was laced with inconvenient truths; mine was saturated with sweet, beautiful lies. Sebastian promised me nothing of a happy ending. The demonic spawn with an angelic voice could derail my only purpose for living, but still I didn't want to look away. My curiosity would certainly be my undoing—but then again, death was inevitable. 

Life perceived by the soulless ones… 

Created by the unorthodox hospital known as the Ringer, Catherine is fated to die on her next birthday. As a soulless spawn, her only purpose for existence is to be the perfect organ donor for her terminal progenitor. Although Catherine has never met her progenitor, an unexplainable bond ties their lives together forever. 


Catherine waits patiently for death, until Sebastian gives her a taste of something more, something worth fighting for. The uncontrollable, consuming passion they share begins to grow dangerous as he reveals the Ringer's most guarded secrets—secrets they'd kill to keep.

What Inspired you to write this novel?




The Ringer Masquerade series demanded to be written in the most beautiful written words possible. My main focus for this series was strip the characters of their humanity and see if love was truly possible. When people have nothing to lose yet everything to lose at the same time, they tend to think differently about life, love, and loss.

The premise of the story was so have clones created to save the original human. The clones are taught nothing more than want is needed to be healthy so that one day they are to be sacrificed for said human. The are holed sway in a hospital, taught nothing about the outside world, no education, nothingcis as important as giving themselves up so that their injured original can live a normal life. So by sacrificing themselves, they save themselves yet destroy themselves.

Clones were never meant to have a life worth living. So when two fall in love, who should take the ultimate sacrifice? The clone? The original human? Who deems the value of a life worth living.

It brings to questions: what is a soul?

But that happiness shatters when Jessica catches Caleb kissing her ex-best friend—and step-brother’s girlfriend—Rachel, the girl who used to be like her sister, and the same girl who betrayed her once before.

When he spoke, his gaze traveled all the way to my toes. He reached over and pushed one of my flyaway curls behind my ear. “Counting keeps my mind busy.”

Butterflies more potent than first day jitters fluttered in my stomach. “Busy from what?”

His lips curled into a grin. “Thinking of you.”

He said it like thinking of me was the most dangerous thing in the world.

Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.

I shut my eyes and savored each precious touch of his lips. He snaked his hand around my neck, gently brushing it. Every piece of my soul connected to his. When Caleb's lips were on mine, his hands circling my body, the world could explode and I would still be safe.

“I’m so sorry, Chloe,” Noah whispered. “For all of it. Everything that’s come down on you because of me. I’m sorry.” 

I trembled at the look in his dark green eyes. At the feeling of his hand on my own, and the memory of how he’d held it all those weeks ago when the dehaian stuff was all new and the worst thing in the world was finding out I wasn’t human. 

His other hand came up, brushing back my hair from my cheek. Warm shivers ran through me, like electricity that didn’t hurt at all. “I missed you,” he continued softly. 

I swallowed hard, trying to find my voice. “I missed you too.” 

He came closer and my gaze fell, tracing the line of his cheek. I could feel his warm breath on my neck, his lips barely an inch from mine.

Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the magical things she imagines couldn't actually exist. A Midwestern girl who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, she dreams someday of travelling the world – though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is done. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood series.
