Double Take

Author(s): Kerri Nelson

After growing up the laughing stock of the town drunk and humiliated by the hottest guy in school, Kennedy Wolfe planned on never stepping foot in Greece, New York again.

Now a highly decorated agent for the FBI, Kennedy learns of the abduction of her best friend from high school. The news comes just days after the invitation to her class reunion was received and tossed.

Despite her better judgment, she cant resist the urge to take on a case that would show her classmates once and for all what shes really made of.

Damon Divine is the unbeatable District Attorney and hes dead set on finding those responsible for abducting his twin sister. But when the beautiful Agent Wolfe comes to town, he knows the kidnappers wont be the only ones on her hit list.

After all, standing up a girl on senior prom night is not something shes likely forgotten.



Excerpt

Her heart thumped against the back of her sternum as she saw him standing in front of the car looking inside at her.

She had the sudden urge to scuttle over into the drivers seat and speed away from the scene. But a glance at the ignition told her that her partner had tucked the keys in his own pocket before heading inside.

Taking a deep, calming breath, she opened the car door and stepped out into the crisp evening breeze.

Damon walked towards her, stopping just a beat or two away and watching her with those brilliant blue eyes that could still make her hormones rumble after all these years.

Youre here for the reunion? He asked in gravelly voice that made her throat constrict.

Why did he have to be so damned sexy?

She cleared her throat before replying, afraid her voice would squeak in a most unattractive manner.

No, Im here on Danas case.

His eyebrows shot up in surprise but his face otherwise remained as stoic as ever.

Youre FBI? His voice sounded impressed and his head tilted ever so slightly to the left as he seemed to be appraising her body from the starched collar of her blouse down to her sensible pumps beneath grey trousers.

Despite the sudden twinge in her nipples as they pressed against the inside of her bra, her heart sent a twinge of pain through her chest as she realized he hadnt kept any tabs on her throughout the years. Whereas she knew just about everything there was to know about Damon Divine, the District Attorney of Monroe County with the unbeatable conviction rate.

Perhaps it was just a hazard of her job, that she could do searches on individuals from her life. But she couldnt help but hope that he would have known what shed become despite her past.

Straightening her posture further she studied his tired face, the dark circles under his eyes
evidence of sleepless nights, and the worry lines that creased the corners of his eyelids.

Ill be heading up the investigation as soon as we check in with the Greece police. You know this Wiggins character?

Damon nodded but remained silent for a beat.

I knew it was you out here. When that guy inside ordered a tuna salad sandwich with extra mayo and extra jalapenosI could just feel you nearby. It was so strange.

Kennedy blinked at him. Hed remembered her favorite sandwich and all the particulars of it. He hadnt written her out of his mind completely. A little of the earlier internal warmth started to flow back inside her.

Thats my partner. Well be staying over in Rochester. It appears that our classmates have already booked up all the rooms at the Inn.

She motioned behind her with a tilt of her head.

AhI hadnt thought of that. Guess I should have made arrangements for you when I put in the request for federal help.

Now it was Kennedys turn to be surprised.

You called in the fed request?

Damon nodded. He rubbed his hand across his unshaven jawbone and looked at her with palpable pain in his eyes.

The localsWigginscomplete idiots. They are saying she might have just run off but I know Dana and I know shed never do that. Theyre not taking this seriously. Time is wasting and the longer it takes to find a lead, the more chance theyll never find her.


Kennedy heard the grief breaking in his voice. Dana and Damon had always been extremely close. Not just because they were twins, but because theyd genuinely liked one another as friends. They had similar interests and were always taking care of each other in an almost parental way.

Perhaps that was why Dana had been such a good friend to Kennedy. Shed had more than her share of love and adoration from her family, more than enough to spread around to friends.

Well find her, Damon.

He looked into her eyes. He seemed to be searching for answershopesomething that would put his mind at ease.

The bell over the door of the caf chimed as Chi made his way back to the car, balancing bags and Styrofoam cups in his arms.

We ready? he asked as he piled the food on the hood of the car and fished for keys in his pocket. He was keeping a close eye on Damon as he spoke.

Ready.

Kennedy turned away from Damon and started to open the car door but his hand on her arm stopped her cold.

She looked back at him and his eyes were soft, tender, filled with longing.

Thanks for coming, he said and a small smile flitted across his face.

Kennedy felt her gut clench. She knew she couldnt let him see the affect he still held on her after all of these years. It could compromise both her investigation and her heart. So she did what any tough as nails field agent would do. She kept it strictly professional.

I didnt come for you. I came here to work the casejust like any other case.

With that, his eyes seemed to fill with more pain.

Kennedy turned away and sank into the car, closing the door behind her.

Chi backed the car out of the spot and Kennedy kept her eyes averted away from the man named Damon Divine who stood there all alone.

That was brutal. Chi said as they sped back out of town.

Not nearly as brutal as what he did to me.
