Undeniable Book Tour: Read an Exciting Excerpt!

Susan Heim on Writing is pleased to be a stop on the book tour for Undeniable, by Tawdra Kandle! Read on to learn more about this book and author, plus read an exciting excerpt!

About Undeniable:
For Rafe Brooks, running from a broken heart means losing himself in alcohol and women. Lots of women, none of whom will remember him, since he has the ability to manipulate their minds and make them forget.

Numbing the pain works until he meets an irresistible redhead with secrets of her own. She offers him the opportunity to join forces with an organization that will use his powers for good rather than his own amusement.

Jocelyn rocks his world with her unapologetic passion and makes him believe for the first time he just might survive heartbreak.

When a mission takes the two of them undercover to infiltrate a commune with suspicious activity, they discover it's just the tip of a plot to cause world-wide anarchy. Hiding their extraordinary powers and real identities is crucial to staying alive.

For Rafe and Jocelyn, when life is uncertain, love is undeniable.

An Excerpt from Undeniable:

I NEEDED A nap after my session with Zoe, but instead, Cathryn met me in the hallway and led me downstairs to large airy room with wide windows that looked out over the green expanse behind the house. Joss was sitting in a chair, shuffling through a folder. She looked up and smiled at me, questioning in her eyes.

Cathryn closed the door and held out a hand. “Have a seat, please, Rafe. Zoe gave you the green light for testing and training, so we’re going to play a little. Have some fun.”

She smiled, and I realized it was the first time I’d seen that. Cathryn was actually a beautiful woman when the worry and ice faded from her eyes.

“I’m up for fun. Wait, it’s not the same kind of ‘fun’ I had with Zoe, right?”

Joss laughed. “No, this is about testing your limits. Seeing how far you can go. And how long you can go.” She winked at me, eyes full of suggestive laughter.

I quirked an eyebrow. “All night, baby. And as far as you want. You know it.”

Cathryn’s smile disappeared, and she put a hand to her throat as though sick. “Please. I don’t need to know any of that. And Jocelyn, if you can’t behave, I’ll find someone else to help us.”

“Oh, all right, I’ll be good. I promise.” She stood and crossed her heart, offering Cathryn wide-eyes.

“Fine. Rafe, we want to see the physical range of your influence. In other words, how close must you be to a subject to manipulate his mind? That’s our first test today. Do you have any idea about your range?”

I shook my head. “Not really. It’s not something I ever tested. Usually if I’m trying to mess with someone’s mind, he -- or she -- is right in front of me. At least in the same room.”

“Or even the same bed,” Joss muttered, and I grinned at her.

Cathryn either didn’t hear or chose to ignore us. Seeing that she could hear our very thoughts, I decided it was probably the latter.

“Fine. So what I want to do first is have you manipulate Jocelyn here in this room. Make her do something by influencing her mind. And then, using that as our baseline, we’ll move her further away and see what happens. Jocelyn, lower your blocking, please, so that Rafe can begin.”

“Manipulate Joss. Hmm, this really could be fun.” I sat down, thinking. “I can make her do anything?”

Cathryn rolled her eyes. “Within decorum and reason, please. Nothing lewd or -- you know. Pretend your grandmother is in the room with us.”

Shit, that did limit me. I looked into Joss’s eyes and smiled. She was hiding it well, but I could see the nerves. She played it off, but she really didn’t like being the guinea pig.

A moment later, she stood, looking surprised, and moved to the mini-bar I’d noticed in the corner. She pulled out a glass, added ice, and splashed in what I took to be whiskey. As she turned back toward me, an odd smile formed on her lips. She handed me the drink and said, “Anything for you, my lord and master.”

I grinned, slugged back the drink and let go of her mind. The smile vanished from her face, and she looked around in confusion. And then she punched my shoulder.

“You’re a jerk, you know that?”

I set down the drink and held up my hands. “Hey, it’s all in the interest of science, Joss. No need to get squiffy.”
