Book Excerpt from Dead Running by Cami Checketts plus $25 Amazon/Paypal and more Give Away

Dead Running

Cassidy Christensen is running.
Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.
Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.
Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.

With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she'll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future.

Dying to Run

Cassidy Christensen wants to run.

Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.

This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.


Book Excerpt

A gunshot echoed through my peaceful neighborhood. Not again. Two weeks without someone trying to kill me was apparently too long.

I dropped to my hands and knees before realizing the light was still on. My trembling hand slid up the smooth wall to the switch; tanned arm contrasting with the white paint. If the shooter looked up at the window right now he could make me an amputee before hunting me down. Shaky fingers closed around the switch and the room plunged into darkness.

I crawled towards the window. Though it was October, the day had been so warm I still had the window open to cool off my second-story room. My ears strained for any out of place sounds, but the chilly air revealed nothing. I peered down into the darkness, our feeble porch light losing the battle against the night.

The shooter didn’t make me wait long for his dramatic appearance. He lumbered towards the front door, steadying himself against the railing. The porch light cast his mammoth shadow against the ground.

Yikes! There was a giant on my front porch who had either just been shot or just shot someone else. My fingers dampened the windowsill with sweat. Nana was downstairs snoring without a worry. Could I get to her in time?

The man pulled a key from his pocket, turned it in the lock, and eased through the door. What the crap? Who was this beastly dude and how did he have the key to our house?

I dialed 9-1-1 on my cell phone and searched the floor for some kind of weapon. My hand closed around a twenty-pound dumbbell. Seriously. I was bringing a dumbbell to a gunfight.
