For this week's My Sexy Saturday I chose an excerpt from my novella Onyx Night, available from Breathless Press. The story occurs around Halloween time, a very powerful holiday for the shifter community Onyx is from.
"You can hide here until after Halloween. My magic will protect you. Then I'll try to smuggle you out of the area where you'll be safe."
Cole's words lifted a great weight off her shoulders. "Thank you."
Onyx looked at him and smiled. Their eyes locked and she felt that tug again. Her body desperately wanted to be closer to him. She took a few steps in his direction. He stood rock still, and for a moment she thought he had stopped breathing.
"What is this? Do you feel it too?"
"Yes," he said with a weary sigh. "I've felt it for a long time whenever you were near."
"Really?" She was beyond thrilled that he had noticed her in that way.
"It's your magic calling to mine."
"Oh." Well, that didn't sound very sexy.
"You seem disappointed."
She shook her head. "No. Not disappointed." Devastated, is more like it.
I hope you enjoyed the excerpt! Happy Sexy Saturday!
