Tee hee!!!! *grins maniacally* twisted Why am I making this crazy face?


  1. I have Gail McHugh’s latest (second) “Pulse” teaser and
  2. I have a release date!!!! Pulse is expected to be released —> August 10th 2013) and
  3. Wait ’til you guys read this one… y’all are gonna freak right out!!!! The author likes to play wicked games, I see. confused And now we gotta stress for months! GAH!!!!! It’s short and sweet. Er…. short and… not so sweet. ;)

(Warning… do not read the teaser below unless you’ve first read book #1 “Collide (Volume 1)” and then —> the first teaser for her upcoming “Pulse”).

Ready to read Pulse teaser #2?

“Wait,” she purred, trying to catch her breath. She towed her neck back and stared into his eyes. “What are you doing? Are you going to just f&ck me right out here?”

With a smug grin, Gavin backed away, leaving her panting body lax against the wall. “Not as fun as you originally appeared, I see,” he muttered, fishing his keys from his pocket. He slid them into the door and unlocked it, holding it open as he waited for Jessica to adjust her clothing.

Sighing, she picked her clutch up from off the ground.

As she walked past him she rolled her eyes. Dropping the clutch onto an antique, claw-footed table in the foyer, Jessica swept her gaze across his expansive beachfront home.

“Nice place.” She turned and faced him, her smile showing she was impressed. “So now, where were we?”

“You were about to strip for me.” Gavin tossed his keys onto the table and started unbuttoning his shirt. After slipping it off, he leaned against the doorjamb of the kitchen and crossed his arms as he watched her undress.

Jessica peeled the last piece of clothing from her body and moved toward Gavin. She took his face in both her hands and pulled him into her mouth. It was then that Gavin shoved Emily back into his aching heart’s closet, locked the door, and threw away the key. As he unbuckled his belt, one clear thought attacked his mind.

Emily would be proud that he was taking a ‘void killer’ to bed tonight.

Samantha March 29, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Just read this teaser less that a minute ago and I’m not sure yet how I feel about this scene. I will have to process this for a while. Having said that, I’m a bit confused about where exactly Gavin is heading.

Cristin March 29, 2013 at 7:45 PM

Seriously!!! I knew I should not have read that lol. I am going nuts waiting for this book to come out. I don’t no if I can make it August ughhh

Mary March 29, 2013 at 7:45 PM

Kimberly March 29, 2013 at 7:46 PM

Cinthya Chacón G March 29, 2013 at 7:53 PM

Noooooo!!!!!!! Gavin what the hell are you doing?

Andie March 29, 2013 at 7:53 PM

I think this teaser time wise is before the last one, showing how he tries to cope with losing Emily before she finds him in Mexico…just a thought.

Luz Greer March 29, 2013 at 7:59 PM


I’m speech less.

patricia March 29, 2013 at 8:02 PM

The title should be FLATLINE……after that teaser combined with the first one. Oh man this is suppose to be “good Friday ” not f with trisha Friday. Oh man I think I am gonna bust.

Korin March 29, 2013 at 8:08 PM

I should not have read this one I have a broken heart </3 Gavin oh no……………..

Shannon Gonzalez March 29, 2013 at 8:11 PM

No!!! Gavin needs to forgive her and not keep screwing around.

Andrea March 29, 2013 at 8:18 PM

WTH! Not liking where this is headed. She didn’t marry the guy! WTH why is he pushing her away now? Damit!!!

Tina March 29, 2013 at 8:19 PM

I am hoping that this Jessica chick takes place before he finds Emily in mexico. Uggghh Gavin, get your shit together!

Carol March 29, 2013 at 8:22 PM

I had a heat attack when I read that, WHAT THE HELL GAVIN!!!!!!

Carol March 29, 2013 at 8:22 PM

I mean heart attack haha

erica March 29, 2013 at 8:23 PM

valerie March 29, 2013 at 8:43 PM

Elizabeth March 29, 2013 at 9:18 PM

This makes me so sad!! Bad, Gavin, bad!!!

STACY BURNETT March 29, 2013 at 9:25 PM


Teresa March 29, 2013 at 9:32 PM

I’m not happy with Gavin at all right now I ca t believe he’s going to do that to Emily !!!!!’

Ali March 29, 2013 at 9:36 PM

Okay, who the hell is Jessica??!!! Were coming after her!

Kerry March 29, 2013 at 9:40 PM

Well that made me sick to my stomach!

Leeanne Perrin March 29, 2013 at 10:26 PM

Wholly shita you’re going to kill us:((((!!!!

Pamela March 29, 2013 at 11:02 PM

Not surprised. I knew when I finished Collide Gavin would be hard to get. I am sad that I was right. The first teaser was equally as frustrating as this one. That said, I was heart broken over Gavin in Collide. I wanted to brain Emily.

Emely March 29, 2013 at 11:03 PM

Disappointed in Gavin! But what fun would there be in reading it without the angsty trouble they go through, I’m already </3

Pam March 29, 2013 at 11:09 PM

Uggg! We have to wait until August…..

Catherine March 29, 2013 at 11:39 PM

I just about puked… This is so upsetting… I hope he stops before anything happens but i dont think he will.. Plus this happened at his beach house, WTH??? why’s he bringing a girl all the way there??
I’m pretty freaked right now…

Catherine March 29, 2013 at 11:42 PM

What does that mean Emily would be proud??? WTH??? this is just horrible.

Emma March 30, 2013 at 12:09 AM

August 10? August 10???? I cannot wait that long! Especially not with Gavin pulling s*** like this! AAAAAAAGH!

alice March 30, 2013 at 2:13 AM

Gavin don’t DO IT!!!!!!!! Emily:(

alice March 30, 2013 at 2:16 AM

Gail you are an amazing writer and thank you for Colide. Trying to be patient for Pulse, but understanding in the process. Happy Writing!!!!!!!!

Laura March 30, 2013 at 2:41 AM

OMG!!! Jessica??? . . . No Gavin!!!! I love these teasers!! I can’t wait until August! Please can we have another teaser ( a nice long one) with Emily in ? ;-) xx

Lisa March 30, 2013 at 4:49 AM

Wow ! August crap ………..:)

Cherine March 30, 2013 at 5:41 AM

Where the hell is Emily??????

Julie March 30, 2013 at 6:18 AM

I want to choke Gavin! Don’t do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leave Jessica……NOW!

Alison March 30, 2013 at 6:42 AM

I don’t know what to say!!! :/

Val hatz March 30, 2013 at 8:00 AM

I guess GAvin is back to his old ways,stay strong Emily!!!!

Jody March 30, 2013 at 8:14 AM

I’m thinking this happens during the two weeks Emily is trying to find Gavin.

Victoria Paige March 30, 2013 at 8:15 AM

Ha! I thought, wait a minute, I don’t think the heroine’s name is Jessica. Then I read all the way to the bottom. It’s Emily! Nooooo Gavin!

Jenn March 30, 2013 at 8:48 AM

Well I say to hell with the teasers….Give us the Book NOW…I didn’t think that a couple teasers could Mind F*** you so bad but then again what the hell do I know. :-)

Nita March 30, 2013 at 9:01 AM

Really Gavin!?! This part better be the opening, before the first teaser’s scene. Uggh!

B Alvarez March 30, 2013 at 9:23 AM

NOOOOOOOOO I hate this.teaser it broke.my heart!

Lyda March 30, 2013 at 9:26 AM

Ohhhhhhhh Gavin.
What have you done?

Teel March 30, 2013 at 9:29 AM

No ore teasers for me. This has broken my heart

Tootx March 30, 2013 at 9:40 AM

This made my heart hurt!!! I’m done…..until August

Heather March 30, 2013 at 11:43 AM

Why do I have a feeling I’m going to need a drink next to me when I start reading this next book!!! Heart is already in my throat. Get with it Gavin and stop screwing around!!!

Angel March 30, 2013 at 11:59 AM


Ruth March 30, 2013 at 12:43 PM

Collide is one of my favorite books of the year! Definitely worth reading and Rereading

Nik March 30, 2013 at 4:17 PM

Nooo my heart broke a little bit… This comes out im june you say? Damn too long of a wait!! So excited

Denyse March 30, 2013 at 5:18 PM

OMG one of my favorite book boyfriend is not with Emily at start of the next book… This is not a surprise , since Emily couldn’t make a decision on the hottest guy in her life. So my guess is the the chase is now Emily after Gavin for book 2… Love it !!!!

LaurenB March 30, 2013 at 5:22 PM

Ahhh I was thinking it was coming out in June but I guess August is still technically the summer.

And I seriously wish I hadn’t read that but I think it has to be before he left for Mexico because at the end he says she would be proud of him filling the void, which of course SHE WON’T!!!! Ugh this wait is torture.

Laurie March 30, 2013 at 6:40 PM

WTF??!!! I want a “do not like” button

Deanna March 30, 2013 at 6:44 PM

I am so sad after reading that teaser. I was also sad with the first one too. I dont think I want to read another teaser cause I need one that gives me hope that they get a HEA!!! No one can can profess his love with the bottle caps speech and be so heartless. I know your hurting Gavin but remember she didn’t marry him and if you love her like you say you did-man up!!! Sorry for being so crazy-I just loved Collide and can’t wait for Pulse-haha!!!

Isadora March 31, 2013 at 9:40 AM

I have to say I have a Love and Hate “thing” with Collide. There were parts that like you said Maryse I almost threw my Kindle away. I almost, ALMOST didn’t finish it….but Gavin! Gavin was everything, and I cant wait for Pulse!! Great teaser!

carmella collins March 31, 2013 at 11:59 AM

you have got to be kidding, i know that gavin is hurt but this sucks what he’s doing to emily, i know emily needs to get her shit together but come on. i’m still hoping for a happy ending but if not there will be a lot of pissed off fans.

Shawna March 31, 2013 at 5:19 PM

This is killing me…not sure I can wait until August! Who the hell is Jessica? I don’t like her.

Sweeta D. March 31, 2013 at 6:18 PM

AUGUST! un-freakin-beliveable!!!!

Karen March 31, 2013 at 8:56 PM

NOOOO!!!! THIS IS KILLING ME!! He just can’t bed that B—-! Where did she come from anyway. Gosh! He’s cheating on Emily for crying out loud!!!

Carla Cook March 31, 2013 at 9:03 PM

WTF?????????? void killer????????? Huh???? Let’s hope he was friggin having a nightmare! I do not LIKEEEE Likeeeee :~(

Sheree S April 1, 2013 at 1:18 AM

OMG!!!! WTF!!!!! This is bullshit..Gavin is really hurting and he is acting out….Emily needs to get to him quick and fix him…August is TOO DAMN LONG!!!! My heart is hurting for Gavin…I just hope Emily and Gavin can make it thru this!!!!! AUGUST NEEDS TO BE HERE NOW!!!!!

carmella collins April 1, 2013 at 5:44 AM

gail, you really put the knife in and twisting it. i am so pissed at gavin right now the way you have him acting, and poor emily she needs to do something but some how i don’t think that’s going to happen. i know true love doesn’t always run smooth but this is rediculous. you have some really pissed fans.

Denise Philippe Mateyka April 1, 2013 at 8:01 AM

Gail, Love the teaser. Yes I want Gavin and Emily to have a happy life together, but as we know life has many obstacles. Thank you for sharing. I cannot wait to read Pulse.

barbara April 1, 2013 at 10:43 AM

I totally understand Gavin acting out because of the devastating hurt but I so want to kick Jessica’s ass and knock some sense into Gavin’s head. He needs to allow Emily to heal his broken heart. Please, please have an early release date and don’t make us wait until August.

Marsha April 1, 2013 at 6:32 PM

No. Say it isn’t so. This has to be before Emily shows up in Mexico. Surely her not going through with the marriage means something!! Come on Gavin…..and for the love of God, get this out before August!!!

Frogy April 2, 2013 at 4:03 AM

This has to be before Emily found him in Mexico ( teaser 1). He was so hurt that she didn’t trust him and made the wrong decision that she knew as well. Thanks for writing both books. Pluse will definitely be a v good read and sure Gail needs to give us all a HEA ending!!!!! Need more Gavin!

Lesley April 2, 2013 at 11:59 AM

OMG……oh nooooooo

Skeletor-Vixen April 2, 2013 at 12:09 PM

Geez……..looks like Emily’s rejection/betrayal, has turned our Gavin into quite the player. He has to be very hurt to be doing what he’s doing in this snippet.

Niki April 2, 2013 at 1:58 PM

I’m praying this was before Teaser 1! I’m almost sick to my stomach the thought of Gavin being with anyone else. I am so psyched for Pulse, August can’t come soon enough! And Gail please be nice on the next teaser lol :-)

Alejandra April 2, 2013 at 3:37 PM

I Cant beleive it!!!!!!


Mary Mooney April 6, 2013 at 6:36 PM

OMG, Gavin STOP. No more void killers please. I am so ready for this book. Missing Gavin & Emily!

Autumn April 8, 2013 at 8:09 PM

OMG!!! No no no no no!!!! WTH?? Ugh, why why why Gavin??!!!

Fe April 9, 2013 at 1:40 AM

Noooooo OMG I’m crying here. Gavin needs Emily to live please let them find there HEA waaaahhhh

Adriana April 12, 2013 at 6:03 AM

Jesus!!!I have been reading some other books trying not to think about Gavin. But, I can’t help. I’m always comparing, and dreaming about him. And now, he has disappointed me. Please, author make sure that this new book come (as sooner than august) with many pages as possible, with a magnific story with true love will win. And, Gavin stop right now! Or God allow that this passage happened before they see each other in Mexico.

Erin Lloyd April 14, 2013 at 6:48 AM


Tasha April 14, 2013 at 6:33 PM

August can not get here fast enough !! :-( (((((((((((((((

lily April 15, 2013 at 7:34 AM

Let me guess…this would be what happen after the engagement party…right?

Jennifer April 15, 2013 at 4:09 PM

AUGUST can’t get here fast enough! I love the teasers!

Michelle April 15, 2013 at 6:16 PM

This just made me very angry.

Manda April 16, 2013 at 6:34 PM

Im very depressed after reading that!!! August is toooo far away! :(

Christina April 20, 2013 at 5:52 PM

OMG! I love it. Im so glad Gavin isnt taking Emily back so easy. She played too many games in Collide and now she should have to fight for him now. So excited for Pulse to finally be done but I hate that we have to wait until August. I bought Collide a week after it was released and now have to wait 7 months for Pulse. That is just cruel lol!

Cathy April 22, 2013 at 5:12 PM

I just finished Collide for the 2nd time – yes, SECOND time!! I finished it and then immediately re-read it! I can’t wait until August! :( C’mon, Gail, can’t you type any faster?? All I can say is, she’d better not go back to Dillon or I’m gonna freak out!

Dawn April 23, 2013 at 7:26 AM

After reading the first teaser, it sounded as if Gavin thinks Emily was dead. Is it possible that this teaser happens before the first one?

Vina April 29, 2013 at 9:20 PM

Nooooooooo this can’t happen…! Emily and Gavins chemistry is off the charts fu@%ing HOT!!!

Julie May 1, 2013 at 12:51 PM

My heart just broke. I just finished Collide and I screamed at the abrupt ending. Now, reading this second teaser, I will lose my mind waiting until August. I cant even pre-order it yet!!

Jean May 7, 2013 at 3:58 PM

I agree with you Julie…..just finished Collide over the weekend. Let’s hope everyone is right that this happens before Emily shows up in Mexico. There is no way Gavin can stay away from Emily for long!!

Robin May 8, 2013 at 10:47 PM

OMG…you go Gav! I just hope he goes through with it and Em walks in during the SEXsion. Love don’t come easy you know it don’t come easy! I’m just loving it!

Kelly May 10, 2013 at 9:29 AM

Aww sh*t ! That totally sucks! This will kill her! Not so sure I want to read it now!

glenna May 13, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Was soooo looking forward to the sequel. Now,not so much. If he really loves her he wouldnt do this. Dont know if i will buy or not

Sarah May 19, 2013 at 4:45 AM

Hi would like to per order pulse but no site showing please help

Maryse May 19, 2013 at 10:07 AM

Hi Sarah!

It hasn’t been released yet. It is expected to be released August 2013.

Rose May 24, 2013 at 5:52 PM

August? SERIOUSLY??????? Say it isn’t so pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee In the future I’ll check to see that there additional sequels to any book that I read, I FREAKING HATE WAITING!!!! Cliffhangers SUCKS.I’m not very good at playing the waiting game. so guess what???I will be reading COLLIDE again a few days before PULSE is released. Seriously?????For real??? I am sure that PULSE is written and printed. They just want to keep us salivating. Not right….just not right. Gavin……be good please.

Alice May 25, 2013 at 12:06 PM

Wow everyone is so upset with Gavin, but just remember Emily did play games with him knowing that she should have left Dillon the moment she met Gavin. Gail it would be nice to have the book a bit sooner than August, however I’m sure Emily and Gavin will prevail in the end and I appreciate the way you have sucked us all into this relationship. Clearly the majority of readers are team Gavin, but don’t be so hard on Emily she did feel a sice of obligation to Dillon for all of his support and sometimes gratitude can be blinding. She eventually saw Dillon’s true colors and realized Gavin is the person shc is suppose to be with, so I’m not opposed to her having to prove herself to him just think how fun that storyline will be to read especially the continuous make-up sex. :)

jessica June 10, 2013 at 8:29 PM

Please dobt let this be true…..
