A Teaser from the Backlist

Spellbound: Say You’re Mine

There are two things Violet Calder knows. Magic. And that cops and witches don’t mix. Fantasizing about the sexy detective doesn’t help matters, not when her own clumsiness lands her in the middle of Reece Prescott’s undercover assignment.

Forced to pretend the gorgeous Violet is his girlfriend is one more nail in his coffin as far as Reece is concerned. From day one the Calder family has been a pain in his backside, and that doesn’t look like it’s about to change. But keeping his mind on bringing down a drug dealer gets increasingly difficult with Violet so close.

Knowing she has to tread carefully to protect her family, Violet begins to fear that not even magic will save her from falling for the one man she shouldn’t.

Her surprised exhale whispered along his cheek.

“Play along,” he whispered. God, she smelled good. Like the scent of his grandparents’ peach orchard right before the sunset.

One tawny eyebrow arched as he pulled back. The wheels were all but spinning in her head, and she looked ready to out him any second.

He swallowed a sigh. She was a Calder. Of course she would have to make this difficult for him. Before she could say something and get them both shot, he tipped her head back, and slid his mouth over hers. It took a second for her surprise to fade, then her eyes drifted shut and her lips parted. His intention of keeping the kiss for show only disintegrated the moment her warm tongue stroked his bottom lip. He’d been half expecting her to drive a knee between his legs for kissing her. He sure as hell hadn’t actually believed she would respond to him. She could be just a really good actress, but his body didn’t care. It enjoyed the slow hum thickening his blood just the same.

Reece tightened his hold on her, tugging her more firmly to him. Heat rushed through his veins and straight to his groin. Hell, if he’d known she tasted this good, he would have told her brothers where to go and kissed her a long time ago.

    I’m glad Cathy and hope you’ll enjoy Finn and Bree’s story just as much. In another month or so I’ll be posting excerpts for my May release.
