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.
“Layla Love,” Quin whispered, and her fingers curled, dragging nails down his chest. “Mmm...” His arousal from the night before was still very much alive, and her fingernails had it flaring. “I love waking up with you.”
Her breathing quickened as her aura pulsed with a variety of emotions. Bright yellow was abundant, as was the very shiny and substantial dark brown. His eye color almost appeared black in her aura, and it was the most beautiful hue in the hazy rainbow. Quin had always considered his eye color mundane, but on seeing it in her aura, he gained a new respect for it.
She made it look lovely by casting it with a purity and brightness that surpassed every other hue. Dotted with tiny, pulsating stars, the espresso river swam through spirals of silver ribbons, and its current hugged her body, never straying too far from her heart. Quin had never seen an aura like hers. It amazed him every time he looked at it, but he was careful not to react since the exposure made her uncomfortable.
