Excerpt from The Trouble with Spells:
“It isn’t working you know,” his voice interrupted my
“Hmmm?” I questioned with a quirked eyebrow and pursed
“The clothes. Those horrible things you’ve been wearing,
shirts up to your chin, pants down to your ankles, the bad hairdos,
the quick kisses and hugs, none of it’s working.”
“What do you mean?” I asked, trying to appear as innocent
He sat up suddenly, getting off the bed and striding over to
me, before he grabbed both of my arms and yanked me roughly
“I mean it isn’t working,” he said, his voice low and seductive.
His face was so close to mine that his lips brushed across my
forehead when he spoke. “You’re trying to help, and you’re
making it worse.”
I was paralyzed. I couldn’t have moved if I wanted to.
“When you wear your hair like this I just want to rip it down so
I can run my fingers through it,” he said, and without him moving
a muscle I felt the magic emanating from him. Instantly my hair
was released from its bonds, falling to cascade down around my
face. He moved his hands up my body until he reached my face
and then slid his fingers up to tangle into it. He grabbed a coupleof fistfuls, pulling back on it, causing my face to angle up toward
with a slight shake of his head. “Let’s not even discuss what I’d
like to do with those.”
He closed his eyes for a minute then, and I could feel him
trying to regain his control. He took a deep breath, but when he
opened his eyes I could still see the intensity burning through
“You just don’t get it, do you? I could be blind, and you’d
still attract me the same way. Your blood sings to me as it races
through your veins. I feel every increase in the rhythm of your
heart, every catch in your breath, and sometimes even every
thought meandering through that silly little noggin of yours.”
I was speechless, captivated, not knowing what to say, so I
just stood there drowning in the blue pools of his eyes.
“Don’t hold yourself back from me, Portia. It doesn’t help.
It only makes it worse because then I crave you even more.” His
eyes searched deep into mine. “Do you understand?”
I nodded my head, a little woodenly, and bit the corner of my
lip. “I’m sorry. I didn’t realize. I thought I was help…”
“Enough talking,” he said, cutting me off. “Just kiss me
I wrapped my arms around his neck and reached up to his
mouth, and he met me halfway in a crushing grasp. He kissed
me hotly, longingly, until neither of us could breathe properly
anymore, and even then he didn’t stop.
My lungs began to ache. They felt as if they were on fire,
but I couldn’t let go. My pulse was racing at a fevered pitch,
matching his beat for beat until he finally released me all at once,
taking a step back from me, and I fell to the floor.
