The purpose here is to spotlight a few lines or a few paragraphs from a new release or backlisted title. This way my readers get to sample some delicious snippets and I'll do my best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
CHRISTMAS I.C.E. MAGIC is now out and I'm teasing from it's pages. Best part, it's a Holiday Romance and paranormal as well. So magic and light, love and joy. Zach Snow rescued Lily, but she not very happy with it...until he surprises her.
“It’s none of your business.” She didn’t want to tell him she’d given up because the magic of her life had disappeared. She had nothing left and this was her last ditch effort to find peace.
“Yes, it is my business because I’m out here, braving the elements, to save your ass. On Christmas, no less.”
“I didn’t want to be saved.” Her voice came out in a snarl and she fisted the sleeping bag. “I wanted to be out there and see my brother. And you fucked it up.” The tears broke loose from her eyes and slid down her cheeks. “I was so close.”
“There was no one out there but me, princess. Trust me, you’re brother wasn’t there.”
“You have no idea what you’re talking about. I saw him, I talked to him. He was there and everything was perfect!” Linus had talked to her and held her and told her…Get busy living, Lil. Go play in the snow. It’s Christmas.
It doesn’t matter, Linus. There’s no magic left.
Linus’s voice intruded for a moment. You have to hang in there long enough to discover it. Remember, you promised. I think I know someone who can help you keep it.
Lily focused on the pale blue walls around her and the handsome man sitting on the bed with her.
“Who are you?” She eyed him again as she tried to calm down. A neatly trimmed beard framed elegant lips and a strong jaw. Ice green eyes looked out over a straight sharp nose from under thick brows.
“My name is Zach Snow. I’m Search and Rescue for the Paradise Lodge.” He held out a large hand with calluses on his palm. “Nice to meet you.”
Lily stared at his hand and for the first time in months some part of her desperately wanted to touch and connect. She dragged her arm out of the confining bag and grasped his palm, jerking as a spark leapt between them.
For a moment, the world swirled in brilliant iridescence, centered on the connection between their hands. His eyes widened as he turned white with crystalline hair and short claws resembling blunted talons on his fingers. Sweet pleasure swirled up her arm, warming her body, and Linus’s words flashed through her mind. There’s more magic in the world than you know. Lily gasped and the image dissipated until she stared into ice green eyes of a normal looking man in outdoor gear.
His exclamation stole the words from her throat and she gaped, her grip loose enough to fall out of his hand. Who was this guy? And why did he look like a piece of the mountain with green eyes?
Zach shook his head and grasped her shoulders as she swayed. “Are you all right? Lily? Shit.” He lowered her to the pillows and picked up the bowl of soup. “Here, eat some of this. You’re as white as a snowfield.”
He held the spoon up to her mouth and Lily shrank back as far as she could go. Why had he looked so strange? She shook her head.
“Come on, it will warm you from the inside and taste good. Just one sip.”
“What are you?”
Zach paused, lowering the spoon. “Search and Rescue for the Paradise Lodge.”
