GENRE: Paranormal Romance
Jules Hume lives in a world where magic is a myth and supernatural creatures are fiction—or so she thinks. As a strong, independent woman, a relationship is the last thing she needs. Then she meets Ian Kincaid, a mysteriously sexy bachelor with otherworldly charm. She's instantly enamored of him, drawn by an inexplicable magnetism. Ian awakens something magical inside her, opening her mind to things she never thought possible. Things that shouldn't be possible. But Ian has secrets Jules is better off not knowing. The truth will tear her world apart, making her question everything she once knew to be real.
“I don’t understand you, Ian Kincaid,” I said with a huff. “You keep telling me no, but your body tells an entirely different story.” As soon as I could utter the words, he pulled me to him, his right hand cradling the back of my neck, while his left hand held the small of my back pressing my body to his. He smelled so good! Like peppermint and musk. Just as I was going weak in the knees, his mouth caught mine in a passionate kiss. Hard at first, his tongue tangling with mine, but it slowed to a gentle, careful brush of the lips. With the kiss, came the rush, like a wave of energy passing over me and through me and swirling around in my soul. It happened every time we kissed, but lately it seemed to get stronger. He took a deep breath, obviously enjoying that energy, and then pressed his forehead to mine as he stared into my eyes.
“I want you more than you could possibly know,” he whispered. “But we must take our time. Trust me, it will be sweeter when it happens.”
I sighed and bit my bottom lip. What could I say? He was right. I had to admire him for his self-control. But still, I wrapped my arms around him even tighter as he said, “We must go.”
