Fantasy/Action/Adventure/Romance novel with a twist unlike any other.

Sneak Peek: ...“Bring her over here,” the man in charge said. I was the only "her" there. The bartender and another big man walked over towards me. I was about midway between the two groups. I looked to Mr. O’Riley for direction. I didn’t get much help. This was the first time I had ever seen Mr. O’Riley like this. He always knew what to do. I pulled out my gun. The two men stopped. “Put it down,” the man in charge said. I aimed my gun at his head.
“Or what?” I asked. The man laughed. He thought I was kidding. A million thoughts flew through my head. My heart felt as if it might burst out of my chest.
“Where’d you find her, Mr. O’Riley?” the man asked. How did this man know Mr. O’Riley? Was that why Mr. O’Riley was acting so weird?
“I’m…” I began, but Mr. O’Riley cut me off.
“This is Mr. Colman’s niece,” he lied...

Samantha: Book One Part 1
BOOK ONEPART 1
Chapter 1 – Preface
“I think I found the place.” “Don’t go inside yet. I’m sending backup.” “Backup? Why?” “There was a change of plans. Just wait; it may be dangerous.” I didn’t say anything. “You’re already inside aren’t you?” Still nothing. “Damn it Samantha! You’regoing to cost me my job. Just stay where you are.” The phone beeped after she hung up on me. I had wanted to make sure I was in the right place before I called. Too bad the instructions were to call first.I was in a small restaurant and bar – not very crowded, but I made the call fromthe bathroom so as not to be overheard. Time passed slowly after that phone call. I  picked at the peeling paint on the wall to keep myself somewhat occupied. The wholebuilding was old and seemed ready to start falling apart. It had a charm to it though, I guess. The dark dining room with long, sturdy wooden bar and eclectic furniture gave it a classic, cozy feel. I would’ve enjoyed eating there under other circumstances.“Joey!” I recognized the voice that drifted in from the bar area, but neither thespeaker nor the one addressed had a reason to be there. “I thought you said you wereon-call this week,” slurred a drunken David. He couldn’t be thinking straight - he wasgoing to blow it. I left the bathroom intending to quiet him. The bar tender ignored me,

knowing I wasn’t old enough to purchase anything. I never got a chance to quietly ask to talk to David outside as I had planned.“Hey, Samantha, I thought you were supposed to be doing something for Mr.Garner tonight.” Busted. I prayed that no one had heard him, but how could they not have? Before I could do anything, someone was behind me and arms were wrapped around my neck. I elbowed him in the stomach and wiggled free… barely.The bartender and another man came from behind the bar, heading straight for Joe and David. Joe dodged his attacker and David broke a bottle over the other man’shead. As we ran toward the door, a gunshot echoed through the building. It probably would’ve hit David if he hadn’t stumbled over a chair. I was sure I felt the air near my head ripple as the bullet passed me before breaking a light less than a foot away. I had my hand on the door and I would’ve gone for it if Joe and David hadn’t been there, but I couldn’t run out on them.“No sudden movements, Miss. Hands on your head, turn around, and take acouple steps away from that door.” The man who shot the gun was obviously the one incharge. I reluctantly did as I was told, having no other option. We were outnumbered five to three, that is, if you count David who was completely wasted and now slumped over vomiting. None of the other men had guns out. My own gun felt heavy on my hipand my hand itched to reach for it. Joe should’ve been carrying one if he was on-call.He looked to me to make the next move, but I didn’t have a clue what to do.Just then, the backup arrived. Mr. O’Riley charged in with five others on hisheels. I didn’t recognize a single one. Great. I assumed it was a group of trainees. Wehad the numbers now though. They weren’t going to be much help, but they did all have

guns. Of course, this made the others pull out their guns, all except the busboy. I guessI was wrong about only one gun, but at least the others were smart enough not to givean inexperienced young boy a gun - more than I could say for us. These trainees could  possibly become more of a hindrance than a help.I could tell Mr. O’Riley was sizing up the opposition and formulating a plan, but I was getting impatient. We didn’t have time for his lengthy analysis. Either that or he waswaiting for the others to make the first move, which they did.“Bring her over here,” the man in charge ordered. I was the only

there. Thebartender and another big man walked over towards me. I was about midway betweenthe two groups. Looking to Mr. O’Riley for direction didn’t give me much help. This wasthe first time I had ever seen Mr. O’Riley like this; he always knew what to do. I pulled out my gun causing the two men to stop. “Put it down,” he coaxed calmly. I aimed my gun at his head in response.“Or what?” The man laughed at me. He thought I was kidding. A million thoughtsflew through my head.

The man nodded his head inapproval, seeming to know Mr. Colman as well. I was totally confused now and I must have relaxed my grip on my gun. Stupid mistake. The man held up his hand as if he
