About the Book:
Mere moments from a gruesome death, Zack Cole makes a deal with a mysterious stranger. To live, Zack reluctantly becomes the guardian of Layla, an exotic woman struggling under a terrible curse.
Despite a rocky start, Layla discovers an intimacy and passion with the cocky, womanizing Zack that transcends her dreadful curse. Determined that Zack will be hers, Layla uses her vast power to help him solve the mysteries surrounding his attempted murder, unaware that Zack is the target of a vicious band of outcasts on a deadly mission for God.
Without warning, the passenger-side door opened and a thoroughly soaked man plopped down on the seat.
“Who the hell do you think you are!” screamed the professor as his composure shattered. “Get out of my car before I have you arrested!”
Dressed in a pea coat and jeans, the slim, dark haired stranger gave the irate professor a warm smile and closed the door.
“Good weather for ducks. This thing have a heater?”
Snarling, the old man balled up a pair of boney, liver-spotted fists, which had not seen combat since a humiliating defeat at the hands of a bully named Rebecca back in 1951.
The show of force made the stranger smile.
“Calm down, Professor Somerton, before you have a heart attack or something. I don't want to get into a throw down with you; I merely want a smidgen of your time.”
“If you are one of my students trying to appeal a poor grade, you have just picked one hell of a wrong time! Congratulations, moron, you have just failed my class. In fact, I will have you expelled!”
“Not a student. Just a huge fan of your work.”
“A fan … of my work?” The professor slowly dropped his guard.
“You betcha. I read all five of your books from, THEY LIVE AMONG US, to WAS HITLER AN ALIEN?”
Irritated at the intrusion and not in the mood for a conversation, Professor Somerton nonetheless managed a small smile.
“You read my books, young man?”
“From cover to cover.”
“I'm sorry, I didn't catch the name.”
“Sorry, Professor. My name is Rex Brock.”
“While it is nice to meet someone who appreciates my work, you will have to excuse me. I am late to a very important meeting. Stop by my office tomorrow, and I will be happy to sign an autograph or pose for a photograph. Good day, Mr. Clock.”
“My apologies. Now if you will excuse me.”
“I am not here for a silly autograph or picture, Professor.”
