Mid-Week Tease: EXCLUSIVE ACCESS - The Weathermen 4


Welcome to Mid Week Tease hosted by Sandra Bunino.

Authors: this is a great opportunity to spotlight a few lines or even a paragraph or two from a new release or backlisted title. Readers: you get to sample some delicious snippets! We’ll do our best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.

Today I'm offering a sneak peek from EXCLUSIVE ACCESS - The Weathermen 4, coming in September from Evernight Publishing! Reporter Julianne Wallis has just walked back into Kane Bannerman's life, and he isn't quite sure what to do about it ...

Kane alternated between fuming over Julianne’s unexpected appearance in his office, and daydreaming about what she looked like completely naked. He’d only seen her ass five years ago as he’d bent her over the desk and simply taken her. It had been exquisite, and if the very real possibility of them being interrupted hadn’t loomed over their heads, he’d have spent the entire afternoon in this office with her until they’d christened every piece of furniture in it, plus the floor and walls.

He fiddled with pens, swiveled in his chair, and stood in front of the windows glancing out over the fake outdoors of NorthEast. Each of the underground cities had been constructed to resemble the multitude of former US states under which it had been built. Since this one spanned the area underneath most of New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, there were plenty of fir trees and flowering bushes. But they couldn’t fake the sound of real birds, or the feel of a summer breeze on your face as you walked along the beach.

Kane knew in his heart he could never allow Julianne or any reporter to blow the cover off the covert teams each of the Weathermen were starting to put together. In addition to the teams each of them now had cross checking names on forums and message boards across departments, they were hiring teams to track down machine IDs and IP addresses for all the names of suspected hackers.

Each of the twelve men had hacker teams that had been working behind the scenes, but this was the first time in six years that they’d pooled their resources, and widened their search across company departments, instead of merely concentrating on message boards and forums where weather control geeks and known hackers hung out. If Julianne exposed all that, they might as well reinvent the Internet and start all over.

He understood her hunger for a story. It was the same desire he felt every time a new investment opportunity cropped up. The way he had taken his great-great-great-great-grandfather’s company and turned into one of the most successful of its kind in history wasn’t by jumping on every new thing without taking the time to research and forecast first. Julianne had heard a rumor, or he had a leak in this building, or one of the other Weathermen did, and she’d run with it. That wasn’t smart, and it wasn’t likely to land her an exclusive story.

He wasn’t sure he wanted her to do any story, but then realized he wasn’t being fair. She had apologized for that stunt five years ago. More than once now. While she still was eager, her insistence that she was a different person now than she’d been then was true. He’d seen that today. UTU wouldn’t have hired her if she hadn’t proven it to them, so it was only fair he give her a chance as well.

Who are you kidding? You want to fuck her again, not help her career along.
