Sneak Peak for Capture by Rachel Van Dyken


If you’re a fan of Rachel Van Dyken’s Seaside or Ruin series then you may have been anticipating the upcoming release of Capture, the first book in her new Seaside Pictures series.  Thanks to Rachel, we have a little sneak peak at this book which is scheduled to release on August 20, 2015.


Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.

But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.

Dani lives anything but a normal life.

Her sister is married to one of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Her best friends are rockstar duo AD2.

And she has more love around her than most people experience in a lifetime.

But that doesn’t change the fact their parents are dead.

Or that it’s her fault.

It seems her new normal is being a mute, living on the inside, unable to actually communicate on the outside.

That is until Hollywood’s newest heartthrob Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant for the summer.

He’s gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.

But that doesn’t stop her from wondering…if things were different…would he want her?

If she was whole, would he be the other half?


Rachel has given us a short excerpt from Capture.  Enjoy!

“So,” Zane moved around the island and poured another cup of coffee then brought it over to me. “I hear you’re Lincolns new assistant. I hope he’s not being an ass.”

I held up my hand and moved it as if to say so so.

Zane’s laugh was soft, he gripped his ceramic mug tightly the muscles in his tatted forearms flexing.

Meanwhile my phone kept buzzing.

“Yeah well,” Zane lifted the cup to his mouth and drank then set it back down. “I’m sure you’re more of a handful than you let on.”

I smiled at that.

An angry knock pounded against the door and then it nearly burst free from the hinges as Lincoln came stalking in like he was ready to tear someone apart.

“What the hell!” He roared. “Dani, I thought you’d been kidnapped or something. I texted, I called three times, I had to look for the damn hide a key, it rekad me out! Don’t ever—“ he stopped yelling and glanced at Zane then without a word stalked towards him.

“Saint?” He said it like a growl, his fists clenched tightly.

Zane looked up over his coffee cup and smirked. “Mother.”

The next thing I knew, the coffee cup shattered against the counter as Lincoln punched Zane in the few. Twice.

I scrambled towards them, not sure what I could do to actualy stop the two massive beasts and their caveman ways, but worried about blood getting on the carpet.

The  minute I reached them, Lincoln got up, dusted his jeans off then held his hand out for Zane.

“Thanks man.” Zane grinned.

“Yeah well,” Linc ran his hands through his thick hair. “You knew you had it coming.”

“True.” Zane winced as he dabbed his lip with his finger. “But could you have at least taken your ring off first?”

“Next time.” Lincoln nodded seriously.

“Awesome.” Zane groaned then stole my coffee and took a slow sip. My jaw went slack. Were they friends? Enemies?

“You ready, Dani?” Lincoln popped his knuckles.

I frowned then threw my  hands up into the air like as if to say what the heck!

“Don’t worry about it, coffee girl.” Zane winked. “Just old business that needed settling, isn’t that right Linc?”

“Yup.” Lincoln reached for my purse and a jacket then grabbed a cap.

“Wow, never thought I’d see the day.” Zane said under his breath.

“What was that?” Linc snapped.

“It’s going to be a beautiful day.” Zane smiled in my direction then when Linc turned back around to open the door he winked.

    I guess I didn’t know how prolific an author Rachel was until we planned on celebrating her and her books during our 7th anniversary. The more I see, the more I like. I have added her books to my TBR pile and can’t wait to read them all. Thanks for the sneak peek.
