(New Adult Paranormal)
**Mature Content Advisory**

For nineteen-year-old Ember, life has always been about death. With a simple touch, she can see when someone will die. It’s her curse and the reason she secludes herself from the world. The only person that knows her secret is her best friend Raven.
But that changes when she meets Asher Morgan. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and is the only person Ember can't sense death from. The silence he instills in her mind and body allows her to feel things she’s never been able to before, so despite her initial reservations, Ember lets Asher into her life and lets herself to get close to him. But the closer they get, the more Ember realizes that Asher is keeping secrets from her.
When unexplained deaths begin to surface in her town, Ember questions why she can’t see Asher's
death and what it is he’s hiding from her.

He shakes his head, his eyes locked on me. “It’s nothing…. I was just wondering if you wanted to dance?”
I instantly shake my head. “No thanks. I don’t dance.”
He smiles, rubbing his lips together, and I’m mesmorized by the way his mouth moves. “That’s okay. I’ll lead.” He pauses, his eyes scrolling ove my face, and then it travels downward over my body.
“I really can’t…” The way he’s looking at me is making it difficult to protest. “I just… I’m not a fan of getting touched…” I shake my head at my ridiculous response.
The corners of his lips tug upward. “Well, what if I promise not to touch you?” He cocks his pierced eyebrow at me as he backs toward the dance floor, maintiaing my gaze.
The song switches to “Sail” by AWOlNATION and I find my feet taking on a life of their own, as Raven’s words echo through my head. Have fun. I move with him, raising my hands above my head to maunver through the people, tyring not to get touched by anyone.
He walks backward until he reaches the edge of the crowd, then he stops and waits for me to catch up. I’m grateful he choses to keep a little bit of distance from the other people. Once I reach him however, I realize that I wasn’t lying when I said I couldn’t dance.
“Don’t laugh at me when I fall on my ass,” I joke. “Promise you won’t.”
His mouth teases to a grin. “Okay, I promise.” Then he puts his hands out like he’s going to touch me and I suck in a breath. But he stops right as he’s about to touch my hips, and inches close enough that I can feel the heat between us, the brush of his clothes, the feel of his breath, yet he’s not touching me.
I exhale as he begins to rock his body, swaying to the rythmn, and I can’t help but shut my eyes, and move freely to the beat as well. My pulse is throbbing in my chest as I lean just a little nearer so I can feel him, yet I can’t feel him, all over me, invisible tingles everywhere I image his hands could be; on my arma, my back, my hips, grabbing my breast, sliding between my thighs. I want to moan, so God Damn bad, I have to bite on my bottom lip to surpress it.
I can sense him watching me so I crack my eyes open and then open the wide at the sight of his face, his lips parted, his eyes dark.
