Book Synopsis: 

The Prey
He glanced down at his hands fighting the urge to be sick. He couldn’t remember ever seeing so much blood in one place; the sight of it taking his paranoia to another level. Anxiously, he looked about him trying to confirm that he was not being watched, although he knew they had not been followed. The blood made him jittery as if it could talk; as if it alone cried out for help.
Peering up at the setting sun he knew he now had to work quickly. Most people used the darkness to cover their less than honorable deeds, but he could not afford to allow the darkness to catch him. That was when they came out.
Vultures circled above him, obviously attracted by the smell of her dead body. It seemed as though their numbers grew each time he glanced up. The sight of their enormous wingspan added to his uneasiness.
He closed his eyes taking slow deep breathes before finishing the task at hand; there was no place for nausea; he was running out of time. Grabbing her beneath the arms, he dragged what remained of her upper body a few feet away from where her severed legs lay. Next, he spread the broken pieces of her lower body around as well. He had to make it appear as though she had been mauled by them, just as he planned.
As he turned and walked away, he was surprised by the feeling of relief that suddenly came over him; relief that she was gone; relief that she could no longer bring harm. He paused momentarily glancing back at her face, her eyes were still open and even in death she seemed to be watching him. Shaking his head to remove the panic that attempted to rise within his belly, he reminded himself once again that it was finally over.
There were no feelings of remorse only of peace; something he had not felt for some time. You see today things changed for him. Today, he regained control over the life that she stole from him. The woman who stalked and caused his life to be a living hell was no longer a threat. He had turned the tables and beat her at her own game; catching her off guard when she least expected it, and snuffing out her life.
He proved to her that he meant what he said when he informed her that some day he would end her madness. There had been warnings as he begged her to leave things be. He tried to explain that there was no love and there never would be any love, and her tactics were only making matters worse. But, she refused to listen and instead began to cause physical harm.
That was when his will to protect took control, and a carnal side of him he never knew existed consumed him. Just as he promised he ended her reign of terror. A rustling in the brush pulled him back to reality and he stepped up his pace reaching the jeep, as he heard the first approaching sounds of the alpha lioness.
He quickly removed his elbow length rubber gloves, coveralls and shoe covers and placed them in the plastic bag that had held her body, before hopping into the jeep. Locking the door and wiping his hands even though they were clean, he signaled to his partner who started the engine. As they slowly drove off a smile traced his lips and a sense of power filled his heart. You see today the hunter became The Prey.

Anatomy of A Stalker: Meet Arial Carrington, Asha’s secret weapon.

one eye

There is an old saying that goes, “You saved the best for last.” Well, that’s exactly what we have done when it comes to me. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Arial Carrington and I’m Asha’s twin sister and her secret weapon. 

I’ve stood back and watched as my sister was disrespected and stigmatized over her love for Carter. He is such a hypocrite; living a clandestine life. By day he’s devoted to his so called love, Taryn but when the sun goes down he finds his way to Asha’s bed. Well, I’ve watched this charade long enough; I won’t remain quiescent any longer. It’s time to take action.

Poor Carter and his crew, he has no idea I exist. He’s about to get a rude awakening. Not only do I have plans to vindicate my sister but I’m bringing back-up, the twins Doniel and Dillon. Those two alone are a force to be reckoned with. 

Herein lie the lessons, Mr. Woodson is about to learn: 1. Never assume someone is alone just because you don’t see them with family or friends. 2. Don’t underestimate the resources available to anyone. 3. (This is the most important of all) All goodbyes ain’t gone, and all closed eyes ain’t sleep. In other words Carter, watch your back because I’m coming for you. 

Ciao!

Anatomy of A Stalker: Asha Carrington has her final say.

one eye

 

I find it amusing that everyone has an opinion about my relationship with Carter. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 1000 times, I’m in love with him and he’s in love with me. Carter’s just a little shy with his feelings which is why he keeps them under wraps, but when we’re alone, he holds nothing back. Our lovemaking is through the roof.

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Carter and there’s nothing, he would withhold from me. The sooner his nosy brother, sister-in-law and the rest of his so-called crew get it through their heads, I’m not going anywhere, the better off they will be.

I think this is a good place to let you in on a secret.  Carter’s friends, Jude and Holmes came on to me. When I rejected their advances, both pleaded with me not to tell Carter. You should have seen the way they groveled and begged once I rebuffed them, although a romp in the bed with Jude was tempting. Yes, I’m not only desirable to my man but his buddies as well. Ha!

Now, here-in lies the finality of all things Asha and Carter. Our love is timeless and will transcend any criticism or attempt at thwarting it’s existence.  I said it once and I’ll say it again, so pay attention. I love Carter and Carter loves me. We will be together for the rest of our lives. Accept it people!

Carter never dreamed he’d have to look over his shoulder until he met Asha.  A woman with alluring eyes and a mysterious past who is hell-bent on having Carter regardless the cost.

Ciao!

Anatomy of A Stalker: Meet Detective Holmes

one eye Good afternoon. I’m Detective Maurice Holmes of the Chesterfield County Police Department but people just call me Holmes. I was assigned to the case of J. Carter Woodson to solve a stalking situation. I take each of my cases seriously but this one in particular hit close to home.  A dear family member of mine encountered a stalker and lets just say, it didn’t end well, so when I was presented this job, I didn’t hesitate. My first priority is to my client and his loved ones. I want to ensure not only Mr. Woodson’s safety, but that of his beautiful fiancée as well. My second priority is to find that skank stalking Carter or to be professional should I say perpetrator and take her down. I understand there is someone for everyone, and perhaps she felt Carter was her someone, but no means no. What people need to understand is you can’t just push yourself on another human being. Ladies and gents too, if they ain’t interested, they ain’t interested. Take yo monkey-ass on somewhere and keep it moving. With that being said, wrap your mind around this; if you break the law in my jurisdiction and my colleagues and I pursue you, you will go down.  Asha Carrington is an elusive trick but rest assured, I will find her no matter how long it takes. When I do, I’ll ensure she rots in jail for many years to come. 

Ciao!

Anatomy of A Stalker: Meet Bre Anderson

one eye

Hello there, my name’s Bre. I’m the fiancee of Matthew Woodson and future sister-in-law of Carter Woodson. Like my fiance, I’m very direct; that being said, I can’t stand Asha. The minute I laid eyes on her on the yacht, I know she was up to no good. It was obvious in the aggressive manner in which she approached Carter at the bar. Asha refused to back down, even though Carter made it clear he wasn’t interested.

You may wonder how I came to my conclusion although I was seated some distance from them. Well, lets just say, I’m a pro at interpreting body language. I observed the entire thing and was two seconds from taking Ms. Thing down.

I,  for one don’t take too kindly to people attacking my family, either verbally or physically. If you want to get a rise out of me, just approach my loved one wrong. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t believe how calm Matthew was once I pointed out Asha’s aggression against, Carter. Perhaps Matthew reacted the way he did to quell any angst Tayrn may have been feeling, but I wasn’t so mindful. I wanted Taryn to see just what Asha was up to. I’m a firm believer one must nip trouble in the bud and with Asha, I intended to do just that.

The Anatomy of A Stalker: Meet Taryn Givens

one eyeThe day I met Carter, I could tell he was not only confident but a little full of himself too. He walked into the Hotel Jefferson that morning like he owned the place. I was brand new to my job and had not previously made his acquaintance but it was obvious everyone knew him and although Carter was a bit pretentious, he was likable.

When he handed me his business card and asked me to give him a call, I presumed he was just another man after a booty call. You see, my bottom half is one of my best assets and Carter didn’t hide the fact, he liked what he saw. Although I allowed sometime to pass before I called him, I’m so happy I did.

The problems with the crazed woman who decided she wanted my man came out of nowhere and when I finally had enough, I challenged Carter to call her on her behavior or I would. You see, most people mistake my petite frame and soft spoken mannerism as a sign of weakness. They are, however, sadly mistaken. Like my Carter, I’m a pit bull in the boardroom and outside of, if need be. 

It was no problem finding that insane female and eliminating the issue once and for all. Perhaps Carter and Matthew felt assigning Jude to watch over me was necessary for my protection and I’m happy they did. I just want them and anyone who chooses to challenge my loyalty to my man to understand, whenever it comes down to it, I can rumble a little bit. 

Ciao!

The Anatomy of a Stalker: Meet Jude

one eyeCarter and I have been friends since that day in high school – let me tell you about it. There was this group of bad-asses who wanted to give him a beat down and they’d been scheming about it for awhile. They thought they had Carter until I got wind of their plans from my sister. I met Carter after school and together we took them out. So, when my boy called for help, naturally I was on it.

Seemed he had this crazy woman after him with stalker-like behavior. Not only was Carter concerned about his own safety but more so his beautiful woman, Taryn. My job was to be Taryn’s personal bodyguard but when the crazy woman stepped up her game, I looked out for his brother Matt’s woman, Bre as well. Most men would have loved to be in my position, in the company of two gorgeous women, but first of all Matt and Carter are like my brothers. Second of all, my boy and his family’s lives were in danger; ain’t nobody got time for foolishness under those circumstances.

I stayed on with Carter for awhile; until the job was done and done right. I made sure I didn’t board that plane for home until I was positive Ms. Crazy was gone for good. You see, that’s how me and my boy Carter are. Ride or die baby, for life.
