Excerpt (Use this to find the answers for the puzzle and the word search)

Excerpt From: Nina Crespo. “An Officer and a Fortune”

Weaving through the growing crowd at the outdoor market, Nicole glanced left and right. Just as she was about to give up her search, she spotted the herbs and a host of leafy green vegetables. Harris Farms…that was the vendor she was looking for.

But the baskets were almost empty.

Picking up the pace, Nicole moved to the side, squeezing between the people strolling down the center aisle and the ones perusing items at the stalls.

Almost there…

A few steps from the table, a dark-haired woman cut in front of Nicole and set down the numerous full bags she’d been carrying at her feet. Leaning over the table, she blocked the rosemary basket as she flagged down the vendor. “Do you have more basil? What’s out here is wilted.”

“Pardon me.” Nicole tried to snag some of the rosemary, but the woman calling out to the vendor wouldn’t budge.

Releasing a sigh of frustration, Nicole scooted around her, battling the crowd like a salmon swimming upstream. By the time she made it to the other side of the woman, only one bunch of rosemary tied with a thin red band remained.

As she reached for it, a familiar woodsy cologne and alluring body heat surrounded her like an embrace. Distracted from the basket, she glanced left at the guy standing there. It was him.

Stunning coppery eyes met hers, and her thoughts short-circuited, leaving her mouth momentarily uncensored. “You are so…” She barely swallowed the rest of her sentence, preventing it from slipping out. Gorgeous.

“I’m what?” He picked up the last of the rosemary. The corners of his eyes crinkled slightly as his mouth quirked up with a quizzical smile.

Nicole pointed to the tied bunch of herbs in his hand. “You are so lucky. That’s the last one.”

“It is? I guess I am.” The deep tone of his voice settled inside of Nicole, making her tingle from the inside out. As he held her gaze, she couldn’t bring herself to look away.

Stop staring! What was wrong with her? She was acting like he was the first sinfully hot guy she’d ever laid eyes on.

His gaze moved from her face to her free hand, still hovering in the air.

She snatched up some parsley.

Okay, it wasn’t what she came for, but she’d looked silly just standing there practically drooling over him…

When Emmy Russo returns to high school in Moncks Corner, South Carolina after summer break, she discovers some changes. First: Mom has a boyfriend. Second: the cute new student, Charlie Fields, is a Rockabilly greaser with a gang who obeys his every command. Third: attractive Keir Harper wants to be more than just her best friend. And fourth: a perplexed Emmy soon finds herself drawn to two extremely different boys. How do you choose between sweet and smoldering?

Then tragedy strikes on desolate Thunder Road. Strange things start happening, with Emmy in the middle of it all. Intent on finding the truth, she must fight for her heart, her life, maybe even her soul. Because someone wants to possess all of Emmy. And they will be together, no matter what the cost. For eternity.

Excerpt:

I hadn’t expected that. And I wasn’t sure I wanted to respond. The old me, the good girl from New Jersey, wouldn’t have choked. She would have told Charlie to take a hike. But the new me didn’t want to let him go. 

What was it about this strange boy with greased hair that attracted me so?

“What’s the matter, New Jersey? Cat got your tongue?”

My face flushed. “Why don’t you quit asking me ridiculous questions and do something that you’re good at?”

“What’s that?”

“Drive, Teddy Boy.”

One of Charlie’s brows tipped upward in a cocky salute. His knuckles whitened as he gripped the T-shifter, while rivers of veins formed on his muscular forearm. With a look of steely determination etched on his face, he slammed the shifter into first gear and jammed the accelerator pedal to the floor. The car rocketed forward. My head slammed against the seatback, and I dug my nails into the black tuck and roll upholstery.

“You scared, New Jersey?” Charlie asked, his eyes aflame.

“No,” I said as the blood left my face.

“Then hang on, baby, ’cause you’re about to go for the ride of your life.”
