Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Excerpt and Giveaway Indigo Incite (The Indigo Trilogy #1) by Jacinda Buchmann


There are no secrets

Sixteen-year-old Tyler believed that his extra-sensory powers were a secret, but when his twin brother, Toby, is kidnapped by a covert government agency, he realizes that he has no secrets, and he has nowhere to hide.

He’s not alone

Now, to save himself and rescue his brother, Tyler must call upon the help of four strangers. Unknown to each other, Eddie, Liliana, Grace, and Sarah share a common bond. They are Indigo Children. With extra-sensory powers of their own, they must unite with Tyler to maintain their freedom.

Unexpected romance

They’re on the run. They’re on a mission. Romance is a distraction that Tyler can’t afford. But sometimes, the heart has a mind of its own.

Time is running out

Will they find Toby before the agency finds them first? Find out in Indigo Incite, Book One of the Indigo Trilogy.

Without thinking, Liliana grabbed Tyler's pillow and swung her legs over the side of the bed, bringing her feet to rest on the rough, threadbare, motel carpet. Then, she silently made her way to the sofa and knelt on the floor. She lifted his arm and secured the pillow beneath it. With her hand still on his arm, she gave it a gentle squeeze and whispered, “Here ya go.” 

“What’s this for?” he whispered back. 

“Maybe I felt sorry for you.” 

“Oh, so my trick worked? You bought my poor, poor, pitiful me story?” 

“What?” Liliana snagged the pillow from under his arm and smacked it on his head. Then, she turned toward her bed. 

He laughed and then caught hold of her wrist to stop her. “I’m sorry,” he whispered. He tugged on her wrist to pull her down to the floor and then sat up on the sofa. He reached out for her other wrist and held both of her hands in his. The lighting was dim, but she could vaguely see that he had taken his shirt off. She could see the outline of his broad shoulders and muscular arms. His large hands held hers with a firm grip. 

“I’m sorry,” he whispered, again. “Everything I told you is true. Other than my brother, I have no family to speak of; and I swear, I didn’t do anything wrong to get sent to military school.” 

“Well, if you did something wrong, or not, it doesn’t matter to me.” 

“It matters to me, that you believe me.” 


“Because…I li…because I’d like us to be friends.” 

“I’d like us to be friends, too.” Liliana wondered what he had been going to say. Because I like you? She pushed the thought aside. 

He squeezed her hands and then released them. “You’d better get some sleep.” 

“You too.” She stood and said, “Sleep good…on the sofa.” She laughed softly and then hurried to crawl back under the warm blankets. 

Sweet dreams, Tyler thought. 

Same to you, she thought back. As she drifted off to sleep, visions of a shirtless Tyler, lying alone on the sofa, were the last images to float through her mind.

Imi plac cartile cu secrete, si pana la urma, ce carte nu contine secrete? E mai incitant cand descoperi o carte plina de mister, cu secrete.
Tyler mi-a facut o impresie buna, din ceea ce am citit, si dintre toti cei de acolo, numele Liliana si Sarah mi-au atras cel mai mult atentia.
Chiar sunt curioasa de acea "unexpected romance".
