Following is an excerpt from the new novel, The Chroma, by Ansley Rey.
In this New Age Western, The Chroma, a headstrong, young woman, Rain, struggles to overcome her victimized past and become the legend that nature, her true Indian blood and the Hopi Prophesy foretold.
Rain speeds across the Southwest with a wild crew of treasure seekers in search of Forrest Fenn’s real life buried treasure.
Chased by the Feds in our world and alien scavengers from another, the redheaded massage therapist is on the lam and on the hunt to reawaken the fabled Light Warriors!
Andy shut and locked the door.
He looked her over as she un-pinned her hair from the wig.
Long red, wavy hair tumbled out.
He smelled a wave of her scent.
Fresh, sweaty, full of danger,
wind, flowers and secret places.
“What do you have,” he snapped.
Too aware of her.
“Be nice, agent man, or I turn around,” she snapped back.
“Alright, I am sorry, things are stressful lately, I miss you. Can I see them?” He grabbed for her.
Rain, angry now, gave his hand a quick but hard backhanded pop.
“Mind your manners.”
“I thought you missed me,” he sulked.
“Do you want to see or not?” she demanded.
His interest was peaked.
She was not there for sex.
“Reagan, show me.” He used her real name and his best agent voice.
“Nah, I already mailed it back to Forrest already, anyway.”
Took a minute to just stare at her.
“Yes, I found it.”
“Yeah, whatever, now what do you really want, I am busy,” Andy said.
Rain reached into her pocket. It was small, easy to conceal. A gold double Eagle.
“For you.” She tossed it to him.
He caught it.
His mouth hung open.
He said nothing.
The room still.
