“Too little too late, Frank. Dead people can’t help much at all.” Blake pushed off the counter. “Get out.”
Frank’s cold, dead eyes stayed glued to me while he drifted through the wall and out of the room.
Blake’s phone rattled on the counter and I jumped. “William,” Blake said after he read the text. “He wants me in earlier to give us more time to go over my testimony.”
“Do whatever you have to do to put this man away. I want us to get on with our life together.” I glanced at the wall where Frank had disappeared to make sure he was really gone.
“My plan exactly.” Blake’s bravery filled the room and I breathed in the scent of it. It felt good to be strong in the face of a monster like Otto.
“It’s a big day,” I said.
“Maybe not the biggest.” He reached out and skimmed the back of his fingers against my cheek. “Or the most important. That would be the day I finally found you.” He held the side of my face in his palm and I laid a kiss in the center of it. “Granted, it’s up there. I’d do anything to keep you and my mother safe,” he said. “Family is everything.”
“That it is.” My thoughts drifted to the missing patriarchs of my family.
“One more?”
“At least.”
He took my demitasse cup, placed it under the spout, and pressed the button on the silver machine. It gurgled, steamed, and brewed. He made my espresso on most mornings now. One of our relatively new traditions that gave me comfort.
“There’s a marshal posted outside if you need anything while I’m at the courthouse.” Blake opened his hand in front of me, a quiet gesture of support. I placed my hand in his and he kissed it gently. “Another one will pick me up to take me to the courthouse, and I’ll call as soon as we have a break.”
Blake’s eyes were steeled with focus and readiness to face today’s battle, to put away Otto—his own father—who had hunted him and his mother for most of their lives. Not that Otto knew that Blake was his son. Blake had kept that carefully hidden from just about everyone.
However, my heart rode the currents of the wind. It howled and whipped in waves along the rooftop patio. I hugged him, grateful to rely on his strength and firmness, and yet frightened that there didn’t seem to be enough of anything to protect him or what we shared.
“You have to have faith that this is going to work out,” he said, then kissed the top of my head. “If you spend all your time worrying, there’ll be no space left in there for me.” His thumb caressed the thin skin that covered my heart.
His soft lips met mine when he kissed me, heart and soul. And true to my early morning wish, time stood still.
“You’re okay?” he asked after we parted.
I gave him a confident smile and a thumbs up sign. Our new life was finally about to begin.

About Alyssa Richards

Alyssa Richards is a paranormal romance author who lives in the South with her husband and two children. She recently published her first paranormal romance book called The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time and is currently working on the sequel. Alyssa’s writing is influenced by her curiosity with ghosts and the supernatural world. She writes daily and believes that discipline and commitment to the craft are critical to be a successful writer. Whenever she gets the opportunity, Alyssa enjoys travel, spending time with her pups, and nurturing her herb and rose garden.




Addison Montgomery has finally found love with the man of her dreams, Blake Greenwood, and is ready to live another lifetime of happiness with him. But the morning they’re supposed to bring closure to their dark, violent past, all chances of a happily-ever-after turn as dead as the ghosts she sees on a daily basis.

Now Addie must team up with her greatest enemy, embracing her not-quite-perfect gift of reading art psychically. If she succeeds, she will finally learn the truth behind her father’s and grandfather’s disappearances. If she fails, every chance at love she’s ever hoped for will be destroyed. But one thing is clear: she has to choose between saving Blake or her family, and there’s no way she can ever have both.
