For Chloe, the ocean was supposed to mean safety and for a

seemed possible, until she learned that nothing was as it appeared.
After an unspeakable betrayal shattered everything she
thought she knew about Zeke’s world, she and Zeke have fled the ocean for the
one place Chloe never expected to want to go.
Home.
But the challenge of living as a mermaid over a thousand
miles from the ocean isn’t the only problem facing her. Home has changed.
Enemies are waiting, ones she never saw coming. Her little Kansas town is full
of surprises.

Including Noah, the guy she left behind.

Chloe always dreamed of visiting the ocean, and now the ocean is the only place she has left to go. Trapped in the form of a mermaid and on the run from the Sylphaen, her best chance for safety lies in traveling with Zeke to his underwater home and staying under his protection there.

Leaving isn’t easy, however. Her best friend doesn’t know where she’s gone, and her family doesn’t either. She’s been forced to abandon Noah, the boy she’s liked for years and who she’s just discovered likes her too. She only hopes Zeke’s people will help her so she can return soon.

But when conspiracies follow her and people start to die, safety becomes harder to find than ever. The Sylphaen are coming. They’re more powerful than she could have imagined.

And they’re not through with Chloe yet.

Zeke

 

“So what do you think those mercenaries were doing here?” Niall asked me quietly. “The border patrols should have stopped them ages ago.”

I didn’t answer, watching Chloe while the guards swam around us, getting ready to leave. Curled on the sand, she slept, the blue-white light of the fire flickering against the iridescent sheen of her cream-toned scales. Currents twisted through her hair, which was redder than it had seemed on land, and occasionally the gold-dusted skin of her brow furrowed, as though she was fighting something in her dreams.

And all around her, a faint hum quivered through the water, like the ocean was ever-so-slightly electrified.

Niall said something, and I blinked. “What?”

His lip twitched. “I said the change looks good on her. Or wouldn’t you agree?”

I glanced back at her. “Uh, yeah, I guess.”

“You guess?” He looked from me to Chloe and then scoffed. “You feeling alright?”

“Fine.”

“Uh-huh.”

I gave him an irritated look. “What?”

“Oh, nothing. But if you’re not going to make a move on her, you better be sure I will.”

“No, I–”

I cut off the hurried response, uncertain what I’d planned to say. But Niall just paused.

“Wait,” he said. “You’re not…”

“Not what?” I asked when he trailed off.

Niall cleared his throat. “You’re not like actually falling for her, are you?”

“Huh?”

He paused, a weird look on his face, and then he suddenly let out an incredulous chuckle. “Well, I… damn that’s, um…”

“That’s what?” I demanded. “Niall, give me a break. I barely know the girl.”

“Yeah, and yet you wanted all these guys to come to Santa Lucina to rescue her.”

“You know it wasn’t like that.”

His amusement grew. “Uh-huh.”

“Oh for pity’s sake, Niall. Do you feel the water around us? Feel how it’s different with her in it?”

“It’s different, huh?”

“I will kick your ass, you keep this up.”

Title: Awaken

Series: Awakened Fate (Book One)

Author: Skye Malone

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Wildflower Isle

Publication Date: June 3, 2014

Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.

But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn’t even begin to apply.

Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.

It was supposed to be a vacation. It’s turning out to be a whole lot more.

Chloe

 

I turned to see Maddox coming down the hall with his younger brother, Noah, several steps behind.

I swallowed. I’d only seen Noah a few times over the years, with the most recent being Christmas when he’d come to visit his mom. I think I’d managed three words. And right now, with his skin tanned golden and his deep green eyes looking amazing beneath the sandy flop of his sun-streaked hair, three words would have been hard to come by.

“Oh hey,” Maddox said to us as he came into the room, a paper bag of groceries in his arms. Dark as his brother was light, Maddox took after their father, while Noah had his mother’s hair and eyes – though with their height and muscles, they both looked like crosses between surfers and bodybuilders. Maddox set down the bag. “When’d you all get in?”

“Just a few minutes ago,” Baylie said, grinning as Maddox came over and gave her a hug. “You guys went shopping?”

“Eh, well, you know. Gotta help out occasionally.” He smiled at me as Noah gave Baylie a hug as well. “Hey Chloe.”

“Hey,” Noah added to me, twitching his chin in greeting.

“Hi.”

Feeling something of an idiot, I looked back to the view beyond the windows, hoping the glare hid any treasonous blushing my face might have decided to do. It was stupid. There were plenty of decent-looking guys that I saw every day back home. Of course, they were local boys and most of them knew me as that girl with the weird parents – which, obviously, wasn’t particularly appealing.

And besides, Noah went way beyond decent-looking, straight on to hot.

I could feel my face getting red. Taking a deep breath, I focused on watching the water rolling in.

“So you boys want to get the grill started up?” Diane suggested.

“Sure,” Maddox said. From the corner of my eye, I saw him head for the patio door, and Noah followed.

Air escaped me and when I looked back toward the kitchen, I found Baylie watching me curiously.

I pushed a smile onto my face. “Want to get unpacked?”

“Alright,” Baylie said.

She headed for the stairs, motioning me to follow.

“You okay?” she asked as we left the kitchen.

“Uh-huh.”

She didn’t look convinced. And I didn’t really want to explain.

“So what one are we in?” I asked as we reached the second floor. I glanced at the doorways lining the hall, trying to cover for the awkward moment.

Baylie led the way to a large bedroom at the end of the long hall. White carpet covered the floor, the same as in the hallway, but the walls here were pale blue. Sheer curtains hung over the window that faced out onto the backyard and the ocean, and two queen-sized beds flanked it. A woven chair stuffed with pillows sat to one side of the room, while a dresser stood nearby, fashionably flaked and vintage-looking paint covering it. Starfish and seahorses were nestled in corners of the ceiling, as were fishermen’s nets, while twin skylights let the sun shine down on each of the beds.

“Wow,” I said.

“Diane loves decorating almost as much as cooking,” Baylie replied with a grin.

I felt like repeating myself, and settled for nodding appreciatively. We headed for our bags, which had been set on the beds. Unzipping my backpack, I hesitated over the contents, and then drew out a sundress. A couple days in a bag hadn’t done it any favors, and I glanced toward the rest of my meager wardrobe, trying to recall if I’d stuffed anything else appropriate in there.

My gaze caught on the window. Through the glass, I could see Noah and his brother getting the grill prepared.

Baylie cleared her throat. I flinched.

“Uh-huh,” she said.

“What?”

“Nothing.”

I glared.

“What? Noah’s pretty cute.”

There was something weird in her voice. My brow furrowed.

Baylie grimaced. Casting a glance back to the open door, she sighed. “It’s just… Look, Noah’s great. Really. But lately…” She shook her head. “I don’t know. He’s not like he used to be. He’s… quieter.”

I gave her a skeptical look. I couldn’t understand how that was a bad thing. At least, not to the degree that she seemed worried about it. “Quieter?”

Appearing uncomfortable, Baylie shrugged. “It’s probably nothing.”

Her expression belying her words, she went back to pulling clothes from her bag.

I looked to the window. By the grill, Maddox said something, and Noah nodded, his eyes on the horizon. And then he turned, glancing directly at the window behind which I stood.

Alarmed, I stepped back, and then scowled at myself for being so excitable. There wasn’t anything odd about what he’d just done. He’d just happened to look up at where I was standing, right when I happened to look down at him.
