Book Tour: The Legend of Eve by Toni Edge Excerpt & Giveaway

 
BLURB:
Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.

As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA, Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human "genetic cows," and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to control the Teluosians on Earth.

When Eve's mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam's true love or his next "genetic cow?"

EXCERPT:
I'm dangerous to you. You have to leave. I don't want to hurt you."

I noticed the skin I was wiping was getting rougher. When I moved the shirt I saw small whiskers emerging from his face. He kept trying to move away from me. Tired of it all, I grabbed him by the shoulders. When his eyes connected with me I noticed they were almond shaped and so dark that I could see myself in them.

"Adam, I need you to concentrate."

"Run," he growled.

"Adam, stop being stupid. I'm already scared, and I don't need you making it worse than your face change going on." When I stood up Adam looked as if he took a breath of relief.

Tough! I wasn't leaving him. I just needed to get to my cell phone in my pocket. Then I slipped behind him and wrapped my arms around him. At first, he tensed, but when I started to stroke his hair he relaxed against me.

"Just lay here and help will come. I know a friend who will help us."

"No, you don't know understand. I may not be able to control myself now. Eve—"

"Shh. It'll be fine. You've lost too much blood to argue with me."

I knew he didn't really agree but he was too weak. I had my phone in my right hand and dialed a number I thought I would never need.

The phone rang two times before he answered. "Bryan."

I unconsciously grabbed Adam tighter.

"This is Bryan. Speak."

"It's me, Eve. I need your help."

I waited. It seemed like forever but then he spoke. "You never listen, Eve. Give me your address."
