Excerpt

Layla jolted when Quin opened her door. Then she rolled her eyes and took his hand, letting him pull her from the car. With a flick of his wrist, he shut and locked the doors. Then he pulled her close, keeping one arm around her as they walked into the surrounding forest.
Once they were shadowed, he opened his cloak, and she slipped her arms in, loving the soothing warmth of luxurious velvet. “You never told me how you keep from freezing,” she remembered.
“Magic,” he answered, carefully pulling her hair from the collar. Then he covered the tresses with a roomy hood.
“That’s all I get?” she objected.
“Are you cold?” he returned, an ornery twinkle in his eye as hooked the platinum clasp.
“No,” she answered.
“Then you don’t need more,” he refused.
She scowled, and he grinned, slipping his hands under the cloak and around her waist. Layla’s breath caught in her chest as he lifted her from the ground. Then she was face-to-face with him, lips fluttering around tiny bursts of oxygen laced with his scent, heart thundering as her cheeks burned.
“Is this okay?” he asked.
“Yeah,” she breathed. Aside from her embarrassing physical reactions, she was quite content. “It’s nice.”
“I think so, too,” he replied, supporting her with one arm as he reached up with the other. “I’m going to cast a spell to protect your ears from the pressure, but you shouldn’t feel any effects. Tell me if you do.”
“Okay,” she agreed, and he cupped his hand over her ears one at a time.
“Feel normal?” he asked, and she nodded. “Good,” he approved. “Tell me if that changes. Are you ready?”
“Yes.”
“Don’t be afraid.”
“I’m not.”
She meant what she said, but couldn’t help but squeeze her eyes shut and tighten her grip as he shot into the air, darting through a thick canopy of needle covered branches. When they reached open sky, he leaned back, letting her rest on his torso, and she opened her eyes, feeling foolish for closing them in the first place.

Impassion (Book 2)


A Magical Journey of Epic Romance
Layla
According to the fairy tales Layla Callaway read as a child, she’d stepped into one. She suddenly has the extended family she always wanted, a beautiful home in Oregon, and the ability to perform astonishing magic. But her perfect world has a price, and she may end up paying with her life.

Quin
Obsessed with Layla’s immense power, Agro eliminates leads on his way to Oregon. But there’s a stranger lurking much closer to Layla’s new home, and he’s closing in quicker than anyone knows. Leaving a trail of tragedy in their wakes, both wizards crave what Layla has, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it.


Quin Kavanagh wants nothing more than to shed his playboy past and devote himself to Layla, but his womanizing reputation threatens to destroy their budding relationship and shatter his dreams.

The Enemy

Stretching from coast to coast and teeming with loathed villains and beloved heroes, The Mystic Series is rich with emotion, magic and intrigue. Whether the reader is laughing, crying or falling in love, they'll find themselves invested in Layla's fate through the rich dialogue and emotionally driven characters that weave the web of this fiery tale.


Excerpt

Layla turned her head, finding Quin’s neck with the tip of her nose, and her lips twitched as his scent rushed her senses. Though her eyelashes remained moist, the tears had stopped, and she owed it to the man sheathing her in consoling warmth. He was good at pulling her out of the dark, succeeding where so many had failed since Katherine’s stroke.
“I feel like you’re the only person who knows me now,” she confessed.
One of his hands slid up her back, navigating through curls to lift her cheek from his shoulder. “I want to know you better. Will you let me?”
She struggled to breathe as she flipped her gaze between his eyes and mouth. They were seductive and hypnotic and mere inches away, tugging on her like a magnet. “Yes.”
His eyes twinkled as he leaned in, barely touching his lips to hers, and she clutched his t-shirt as her heart stuttered. Her reaction amused him, pulling the corners of his mouth toward chiseled cheeks, but it didn’t stop him from pressing closer.
