Derailed Teaser and a Giveaway

With Derailed releasing in less than a week, I decided to post up a teaser. I also thought it would be a great time for a giveaway. The giveaway is for print copies of Derailed, Flight, and Beckoning Light (U.S./Canada) and some signed bookmarks (international).

I pulled off my tank as soon as I hit the dock. I hadn’t unpacked my swimsuits yet, and I wasn’t about to let that stop me. I stripped off my skirt, standing alone on the faded wood dock. Dad was the only one who ever took care things like that, and he’d been gone five years. Wearing only a grey bra and panties, I looked down at the black water and hesitated for a second before diving in.
Cool water greeted me. It was too early in the season for the water temperature to have risen yet. I sunk further down—away from two boys, one who left me and one who I left. I came up for air, the saltiness of my tears blending in with the water.
I floated, letting the slight current move me. Part of me hoped it would take me so far out I’d never find my way back again. The lights from the dock lit the night, but with my eyes closed, I could pretend the world had gone dark.
I’m not sure how long I floated when a voice broke me out of my reverie.
“A little late for a swim, isn’t it?”
I opened my eyes and looked up at the dock to see Ben sitting with his legs hanging over the edge. “A little late for a visit, isn’t it?” I shot back, not ready to face him.  
“Well, if you recall, we were supposed to be catching up tonight. You left before that could happen.”
“I wonder why I did that?” I swam reluctantly over to the dock.
“You ready to come out yet?”
“Not with you watching.”
“Like I haven’t seen you wet and naked before.” He smirked.
“I’m not naked.”
“See, so really there’s no reason to worry about it.”

The Rafflecopter is for print copies of each book with bookmarks (US/Canada) and the first 10 people to comment below all get signed bookmarks (international).
