But with time running out to save her stepmother, Danielle and Cole will face off against an evil growing more ruthless by the day … and discover a twisted web of lies, betrayal, and murder that neither saw coming.

Excerpt 4: Take Off Your Clothes

One wall contained only mirrors, cut into shapes such as stars and lightning bolts. Had he designed these as well? “I noticed the mirrors throughout the house. You use them here too. I’ve never considered a mirror as art before.”
He shrugged and strode to her. “I like mirrors.”
“I don’t.”
“Why not?
“Mirrors tell the truth. Without them, I can pretend to be someone else. I can forget what I look like.”
Creases in his forehead appeared. “Why the hell would you want to do that?”
“I don’t know if you remember, but I used to be a lot heavier than I am now. But even now, I’m not thin.” She scrutinized her reflection in the jagged mirror. “I’m not beautiful.” 
He gripped her shoulders and twirled her toward him. “Who says?”
“No one has to say it to my face.” She motioned to the wall of mirrors. “It’s very clear every time I’m forced to see my reflection.”
With two of his fingers under her chin, he turned her head away from the mirrors to stare into his warm eyes. “Then you’re looking in the wrong ones. You’re beautiful. You’ve always been beautiful.” He tucked a strand of her hair behind her ears, his tender touch eliciting a shiver. “And I’ll prove it to you. Let my photos be your mirror. See yourself as I see you.”
Always been beautiful? Was that a line to make her feel better or did he mean it? And if he did, how would he know? 
She didn’t doubt his talent, but the models in the photos must have had perfect bodies, something she’d never have even if she lost another forty pounds. Her thighs were too thick and her butt too round. Sure, she had big, firm breasts, but without her bra, gravity kicked in. He’d need to use some photo-editing software to make her appear beautiful.
His eyes narrowed. “I see those negative thoughts floating around in your mind. Trust me to erase them all for you. Can you do that, darling?”
She exhaled loudly, nodding her assent while her inner critic scoffed at his promise. “I’ll try.”
“Come with me.” He laced his fingers in hers and directed her toward the back of the room to an adjacent alcove. He’d transformed the small space into a studio with several cameras on tripods, gigantic lights, and a white backdrop that extended onto the floor. 
“Take off your clothes and then lay down on the middle of the sheet.” He fiddled with the cameras, aiming them all toward the center, where he expected her to lie. Naked.
