Excerpt: GUARDIAN by Courtney Cole [+ giveaway!]

September 6-Excerpt 6


His eyes never leave mine. Then before I can even register it, he’s even closer- no more than 20 feet away. I still hadn’t seen him move. He was simply first in one spot, and now he’s in another.
I hadn’t even blinked, so I know his legs didn’t move.  
A strange conviction washes over me- unlike anything I’ve ever felt before.
This boy isn’t here sightseeing, hiking or swimming.  He hasn’t bumped into me by chance.
He’s here for me.
I feel it.  It’s a ridiculous thought and I feel foolish thinking it, but it doesn’t make it any less true.
The waves continue to gently lap at the shore and the sun still shines down on my shoulders… but these are insignificant details in the fading backdrop of a stage. I barely notice them.
I’m preoccupied with the overwhelming physical pull that I feel toward this stranger. It starts in my chest and radiates outward, upward and downward.
Every surface of my body urges me toward where he’s standing, like the gravitational pull of the tides. He’s definitely here for me. I know it.  But at the same time, I realize that I’m not afraid and I take a step forward.   

GUARDIAN Synopsis:

  Sometimes, things that go bump in the night are real. 

My name is Whitney Lane.  I’m sixteen years old and at first, I thought I was crazy. 

I kept seeing shadows move along walls, and hearing whispers around corners, but whenever I looked, there was never anything there.  

Until one day, there was. 

Our world isn’t what we think.  There are things around us, good things, bad things, scary things.  
Things that we tell ourselves aren’t real, but they are.   

They’re very real, and they’re terrifying. 

I’ve been swept up now, in a battle of good and evil, confused about love and what is supposed to be love, but isn’t.  I don’t know what to think anymore.  I can’t trust my emotions and I don’t know what is true.  

There’s only one thing I know for sure. 

Nothing is what it seems.


Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. She loves chocolate and roller coasters and hates waiting and rude people.

Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
