Summer is nearly over, but there’s still time to soak up a little sun. Or maybe even soak in a little reading that is hot enough to keep us warm on those fall and winter nights that approach. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I am going to share a scene from an upcoming release. It happens on a beach. Hope you enjoy this excerpt from Magical Kiss.

Breeze came to a stop as she reached the shore. A small distance away the water lapped at the sand. She took a seat and stared out at the endless expanse of water. Why couldnโ€™t she be an air user, or anything else? Sometimes she wondered if she would ever be able to have a serious relationship. Other witches and warlocks did. But most carnal users tended to keep things casual, never knowing when they might be called on for big jobs that would require several power ups.

Her gaze moved to Chehon as he kicked off his sandals and waded into the water. Waves swirled around his calves and knees. He turned to face her, deep blue eyes meeting hers. They reminded her of the depths of the ocean, shades darker than her own. A smile tipped up the corners of his full lips, revealing a dimple on his left cheek. She balled her hands into fists, fighting the urge to approach him. Lust coiled in her lower belly as she watched him move through the water heading back in her direction.

She wanted to tell him no. To stay put. Go back and play in the waves, but she couldnโ€™t find her words. He sat next to her stretching his long tanned legs out toward the water. The tide was moving in, and each slide of the salt water skimmed up the beach and lapped at his feet.

Looking for a good beach read? Seductive Reunion received five stars and recommended read from Harlie’s Book Blog. “What a delicious novella.ย  I read it in one sitting.” ย Get your copy now from Ellora’s Cave and all other major ebook retailers.

It should have been a simple evening. Go to the high school reunion. Have a couple of drinks. Share a few laughs. Easy peasy. Until Special Agent John Clayton walks in and turns Andi Morganโ€™s life upside down.

He makes her want thingsโ€ฆdeliciously wicked things. But Andiโ€™s past complicates matters. Her ex-husbandโ€”and local senatorโ€™s sonโ€”Steve Hidel is in deep shit with the Havenk brothers, a shady pair of gunrunners, and they all want something only Andi can give them. Andi wants to trust the safety she finds in Johnโ€™s arms, but she soon discovers he might have ulterior motives of his own.

Also, keep your eyes out for my upcoming release Just for Tonight, coming October 10, 2012 to Ellora’s Cave.

Kelly Devers has a crush on her co-worker Thomas Brigs. For a year heโ€™s been the object of her fantasies, but she hasnโ€™t dared to make a move on him. But when Kelly finds out Thomas is leaving town, she throws caution to the wind and gives into the yearning sheโ€™s suppressed for far too long.


Passion ignites as their bodies come together and Kelly is determined to enjoy the steamy loving. Even if it canโ€™t last forever.

Read an excerpt HERE

Mixing Business with Pleasure will be included in the anthology Work and Play along with stories from Kathy Kulig and Ruby Storm. It will be available at Romanticon 2012!

I will chose three people from the comments on this post to win ebook copies of Deceptions of Night.

Tempers run hot through the members of the Order of Night as Lex tries to settle in as the new Triad vampire.ย  But when a jaguar attacks him in his bed, his life gets turned upside down, and he discovers a new meaning to keeping your friends close and your enemies closer.

Kill the triad vampire or your brother dies.ย  Shayla grudgingly accepts the assignment.ย  But she soon realizes that success is easier said than done as she lies prone, trapped against the floor and secured by the body of one pissed off sexy leech.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.ย  Lex wants answers and Shayla wants her brother returned alive.ย  They form a shaky truce as they seek out the man who has both.ย  Fierce attraction pushes them closer as mistrust tears them apart.ย  Deception lays in wait around every corner as they struggle to find the master mind behind the traitors to the Order of Night.ย  As the tension rises, desire begins to burn with an intensity that threatens to consume, leaving them to question whether they can find what they seek with their lives and hearts intact.

Best wishes,

Virginia Cavanaugh
