The Benefits of Having a Gym Membership

Posted by: Linda Mooney

As a writer, I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, behind a computer. Or at least, with my laptop when I have to be away from the house. This doesn’t do a body good, to paraphrase an old commercial. So recently, I joined a gym that’s about five minutes away from my house. And I’m already noticing a difference.

For one thing, it gets me away from my current WIP. I can clear my head, and sometimes I’m able to come up with plot twists, or remind myself about a certain plot thread that needs tying up. This is especially true if I’m on the treadmill.

Reason #2, the gym plays music, and I find myself catching a tune or a lyric that intrigues me. Thank goodness for the Shazam app, that helps me discover who and what I’m listening to. I often listen to music while I’m writing, and I'm always on the lookout for “just the right song” to complement my current hero and heroine.

Reason #3, I’m getting some exercise! That’s always a good thing, right?

And finally Reason #4, have you seen some of those buff guys who workout there?

She reaches into minds to discover the truth. But this time, what she finds could get her killed.

Wrynter Poe is both blessed and cursed with a unique ability. She can’t read minds, but she can follow a person’s memories of an event they witnessed. Which is why she works as a special agent for the FBI in helping local law enforcement agencies solve crimes. But this gift comes with a price. She cannot touch the bare skin of another person, for fear of accidentally obtaining emotional discharge or feelings from them.

Lieutenant Hammond Blake is an undercover cop who's been assigned to help this strange woman, when a homicide case she's helping with suddenly takes a dangerous turn. While that case is being investigated, he accompanies her to her next job to make sure she stays safe. All it takes is one touch, one breach of her self-imposed isolation, for the both of them to discover how much they need each other.

What neither of them realize is that the homicide has far deeper roots within the police force. Roots involving corruption and a cover-up that will put both their lives in danger, and test Wrynter's abilities beyond her own endurance.

Warning! Contains latex gloves, a special necklace, skin-to-skin contact, a four-legged snitch, a motel on wheels, a chase in the middle of nowhere, and only one chance for two people to discover if their mutual attraction is the real thing.
