BLOG TOUR - EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: Never Let You Fall by Michele G. Miller

Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”

Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her.

Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…

As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... 

And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…

I stayed alert as I started down the trail that led to the stone bridge, while my eyes continuously scanned the shadowy forest to my left.
 The sound of a branch snapping stopped me in my tracks and I quickly spun around yelling, “Hello?” as I cast my eyes over the area again. 
The rustling of leaves startled me, and I took a quick step back from the large group of bushes where the noise had come from.
A squirrel shot out from underneath the brush and darted across the path, causing me to jump as if the ground were on fire.
Clenching my heart, I squeezed my eyes shut to calm myself.  Damn Xander for scaring me like that!  I hated being scared!  I had taken care of myself for so long that I liked to think of myself as strong and tough.  Now along came Xander, giving life to the ‘little things that go bump in the night”, and all of a sudden my courage seemed to be lacking.
I thought to myself, ‘You’re crazy’ as doubt started to creep back into my overactive thoughts.  How did I know I could even trust him?  
As I stepped away from the bushes to turn back onto the trail towards the bridge, I ran headlong into someone.
“Oh my gosh!” I apologized, looking at the man in front of me.  “I’m so sorry, I didn’t….” my words trailed off as the handsome man’s face shimmered in front of me; transforming into something non-human and then back again.
