Teaser Tuesday – 14/12/21 – Winter Duet

This week’s #teasertuesday is from Winter Duet, book 2 of my WWII Echoes Rising series.


“Do you think he suspects anything about us?”

“If he does, he’s not saying anything.” Ken shrugged. “For now I think it’s better we don’t confirm any of his suspicions, if he has any. We’re in enough trouble without adding to it. He’s an intelligent man, and I want to think he wouldn’t have an issue with it, but I could be wrong.”

“Of course he could be faking sleep and listening to everything we’ve just said.”

Ken slammed on the brakes. Pain screamed through Matt’s arm as he was flung forward and collided with the dashboard.

“I was joking.” Matt hadn’t meant to get Ken so riled up. Matt rubbed at his sore arm. He’d been told his jokes could be painful at times, but this was taking that a little too literally.

“What? Huh?” Liang jerked awake. Luckily he’d been leaning into the door so hadn’t hit anything when they’d stopped.

“No! Don’t you see that?” Ken ignored Liang’s reaction and answered Matt instead. He stared into the rearview mirror and then twisted in his seat to look behind them. He opened the door of the truck and stepped out onto the road.

As soon as the door opened, Matt heard a familiar sound. “Damn,” he muttered. He climbed out of the truck and stared up into the sky.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
