From the author that brought you Captivated, here is the cover of Unattainable! It's the second installment of the Affliction Novels. If you haven't read Captivated yet, I highly recommend you doing so.
If the cover wasn't enough to get us all chomping at the bit, D. Apodaca has teased us further with a couple excerpts from Unattainable.
Excerpt 1: Questions from Dean Excerpt
“What do you want from me?” I demanded.
Dean examined my eyes and looked disappointed in what he saw. “Do you remember anything?” He asked with hope.
“What are you talking about? I was with Shane, then I woke up here! He’ll kill you for this!” I warned.
Dean threw back his head and laughed. “That little mosquito can try.” Then he lowered his eyes and cocked a smile. “I dare him.”
The way he gazed at me was intense. I felt butterflies frantically flying in my stomach and up my chest.
Excerpt 2: Spotting Mindy“What do you want from me?” I demanded, as I pretended not to feel a rush of excitement from his close presence.
“Do you remember anything from your human life?” Dean asked and tilted his head to the side.
“No.” I responded immediately.
“Are you sure? Think really hard.” Dean insisted.
“I don’t. I’ve already tried thinking really hard. Why is this so important?” I asked.
Ignoring my question, Dean asked, “Do you remember your friends? Family?” He hesitated and nervously rubbed the back of his neck. “Maybe a boyfriend you had?”
She slowly turned. I breathed hard with anticipation. I could taste her lips on mine. I could feel her soft touch embracing me. And I pictured her loving eyes penetrating mine. But what I saw made me want to die. Her eyes were brown, not hazel. Her lips weren’t even rosy. Her hair was clearly dyed. This wasn’t my Lina.So, there you have it! What do you think? I don't know about all of you, but I'm not going to be able to wait until April/May 2012 to read Unattainable!
“Hi.” The girl said with interest as she looked me up and down. “Can I help you with
something?” Then she slightly popped her hip out and set her hand upon it, smiling while
waiting a reply.
I stayed frozen, staring at this girl as other feelings erupted inside me. Anger. Hate. Pain.
“What’s wrong with him?” She turned to Markus standing beside me after she had no
response from me. He didn’t answer either. We both stared at this imposter as you would stare at an unwanted gift.
