According to the fairy tales Layla read as a child, she’d stepped into one, but her perfect world has a price, and she may end up paying with her life….
Following three years of loneliness, twenty-one-year-old Layla Callaway suddenly has the extended family she always wanted, a beautiful home in Clatsop County, Oregon, her own prince charming, and the ability to perform astonishing magic. All should be well as she gets acquainted with the powers she never knew she had and the coven she never knew she belonged to, but she continues to mourn the circumstances that got her there while struggling to adjust.
Thankfully Layla has her prince charming – Quin Kavanagh – a gorgeous member of her coven who goes out of his way to take care of her. His gentle hands lead her everywhere, including realms of pleasure previously unknown, so when she learns of his playboy past and a hurtful secret he’s been keeping, her shaky world threatens to crumble.
And it couldn’t happen at a worse time.
Danger grows nearer. Obsessed with Layla’s ethereal beauty and 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.
Impassion excerpt :
Agro knelt, bringing his gaze level with Caitrin’s as he quietly spoke. “I’m here for your granddaughter, the dark-haired beauty with the emerald eyes. Layla is what they call her, but soon I shall call her mine.”
Caitrin’s facade held firm; his curiosity and surprise unflinching. But out of the corner of his eye, Agro saw Catigern’s larynx rise and fall.
Agro smiled at Caitrin. “Either you’re a splendid actor, or your daughter betrayed you in her final days, because your grandchild lives, and I have every reason to believe she’s on the very coast you call home.”
“Someone has been feeding you lies,” Caitrin challenged. “I would know if my grandbaby lived.”
“That’s why I’m here,” Agro returned, straightening from the ground. “You would know, as would the patriarch of the Kavanaghs—your trusted coven member and friend. Let him go, Farriss. Let’s see how deep his loyalties run.”
Farriss obeyed, and Agro stepped toward Catigern, relishing in Caitrin’s fear as he raised a palm. Though the two coven members exchanged a meaningful glance, neither of them spoke, so Agro penetrated Catigern’s blood with icy magic.
