Author: Jessica Wayne

 

 

Genre: Fantasy Romance

AVAILABLE NOW


Synopsis

After a spell left him frozen in time, Timothy McGinley swore off all things magic and accepted that he was destined to walk the earth forever. But when a witch saves his life, he discovers he is facing his own mortality for the first time in two centuries.

Paislee Adams was stolen from everything she knew because she possessed what one man craved: power. After she escapes, she dedicates her life to honing her magic in an effort to destroy the man who owned her for so much of her life.

Fate brings these two together and as they race against the clock to stop the man who has a deadly obsession with them both, Timothy and Paislee are both forced to face the demons of their past in an effort to secure a future they weren’t sure they deserved.



Excerpt

Timothy stared out of his large windows at the darkening sky. The city was never more beautiful than it was right now as the sun sank lower leaving trails of orange, yellow, and red in its wake.

City lights were just beginning to come on and the combination of them and the sunset as the last rays glinted against the white blanket of snow was pure magic.

He scoffed at the thought, nothing good came from magic. Only death and despair. He drank down the rest of the whiskey in his glass and grabbed his jacket off the chair. He never smoked in his office, but damn he could use a cigar now.

Since everyone had gone home for the evening except for Ashton who was in his office watching the security feeds, the building would be silent which was something he dreaded each night.

He had spent a lot of years in the silence, and it was deafening.

Timothy stepped out into the alley behind his building and clipped the end of the cigar he had pulled from his office humidor. He held it up to his nose and breathed in the sweet smell before lighting it.

The darkness enveloped him as he leaned against the door and puffed on his cigar. There was nothing in the world like the taste of a fine cigar as the tobacco seeped into your system.

The calming effect it had on him was one he’d failed to find anywhere else. The chill in the air had the puffs coming out even more defined than usual, and Timothy was enthralled by them as they faded from view.

It wasn’t until he was half done with his cigar that he saw the shadow lurking in the corner.

“Can I help you?” he asked easily, and the man stepped from the dark. Timothy straightened when he saw the gun in his hand. “No need for that, tell me what you want, and I’ll be sure you get it.” Timothy wasn’t overly worried; the man couldn’t actually kill him. But damn, gunshots hurt like hell. He should know since he’d been at the receiving end of one too many times.

The man stepped close enough Timothy was able to see the glint of amusement in his eye. Timothy had only ever seen that madness once before, and that man had been responsible for two innocent deaths and the root reason as to why he was trapped.

His back straightened, and he gave the man before him his full attention. “What is it you want?” he asked again.

“I want to see you bleed,” the man said with a smile and pulled the trigger.

It was the pain that hit him first, that sharp tearing of skin and flesh as the bullet forced its way into his body. He fell to the ground, cigar falling next to him, and clutched his abdomen. No matter how many times he’d been shot, stabbed, punched, or even on occasion-burned—over the years, the pain was not something he ever got used to.

The coldness came next and was something Timothy had not been prepared for. His wounds, no matter how severe, had always healed themselves before the numbing fingers of death gripped him as they were now. How was this possible? He thought to himself. What was happening to him? He tried his best to move but found his body had gone completely numb as he lay there in the pool of his own blood.

And as his attacker knelt next to him, he felt for the first time, as if he wouldn’t survive the night.

Blurb:

FBI agent Caid King has fought long and hard to end the corruption within his organization. After the fall of Clayton Matthews, he returns to New York with his head held high and his eye on the next target. He never could have imagined that the dangerous man he’s set his sights on would have ties to the beautiful blonde he found himself instantly drawn to.

Jemma Saige thought she had it all figured out. Her rules for survival were simple. Keep your head down, your bags packed,  your running shoes on. But when she meets a man at her local gym, their attraction threatens to break the last and most important of those rules:   don’t get tied down.

EXCERPT:

Jemma stared out the window as Caid drove away. She couldn’t help but feel the added stress with each second he was gone. She looked down at the phone he had given her. He said he wouldn’t be able to answer for about two hours because his other was in his desk, but that he would text her when he got to work.

             Then if she needed to hear his voice, she could call. The man who was watching the house seemed nice. He waved at Jemma from the driveway, and Jemma waved back. Caid said the agent was a good one, and wouldn’t enter the house unless he thought necessary.

             That gave her a small comfort. She stepped away from the window and walked over to the bookshelf that held a few leisure books. She lifted a Nora Roberts from the collection, and took a seat on the couch.

             She hadn’t even been sitting on that couch long enough to finish the first chapter when gunshots rang out, and Jemma’s heart began to pound. She ran to the window and saw the agent who had waved at her not minutes before lying face down in the driveway, while three armed men came for her.

Excerpt 

 

“How is the Phoenix?” Argento asked.

        Dakota sighed.  “I don’t know.  We left her with the Sorceress.” The tone in his voice had Argento lifting a pierced eyebrow.

        “You do not trust this Sorceress?”

        Dakota let out a breath.  “It’s not that.” He sighed again.  “I just—”

        “You worry you will not see her again.” It wasn’t a question, and Dakota nodded.  He shouldn’t be surprised, as Argento seemed to be quite clairvoyant at times.

        “If she dies—”

        “She is not going to die.  Think of all she has gone through already. Do you truly believe that the two of you are not fated for happiness?  Once all of this war is over?”

        “I’d like to believe that.  But it seems like as soon as we get close again, something pulls us apart.  When we were teenagers, it was Mitch.  Then Gregory pulled her here and I thought she was dead for ten years.  After I ran into her in that alley, I honestly wanted to believe—even if it was just for a moment—that fate had given us another chance.”  He took another drink.  “Then she was taken by Vincent, and when we found her she had been so fucked up mentally that it took her time to get back to where we were.  Then we did and Brady was killed, which caused her to pull away again until I nearly died.  Then after all that, we are given this opportunity to be a family—however fucked up our lives had been up to that point—we were going to be parents of this beautiful baby together.” He took another drink and ran his hands through his hair.  “Well, I suppose you know how that got screwed up, and now she’s dying and in the hands of someone who has probably not seen another person in decades.”

        “Have faith, Dakota.”

        Dakota turned to him. “Faith?”

        “You believe because we are beasts that we do not believe in faith?” Argento snorted and smiled.  “We have faith, Dakota.  We believe in God, and we believe that sometimes things are meant to be and there is nothing you can do to change them.  You and the Phoenix?  You are meant to be.  You have to believe it, otherwise what are you fighting for?”

Praise for The Sorceress:

“Oh my gosh this book was incredible. It’s book three of the series and it was just as great, if not better, than the first two. It was absolutely amazing. I loved it and all the characters. Jessica is a fantastic writer and she did a great job writing about Anastasia, Dakota, Elizabeth, Tony and all the other characters. The creativity she possesses to be able to imagine this storyline and the other worlds and their inhabitants, is truly genius! And that ending was a huge surprise! If you haven’t already you need to read this entire series! Definitely a 5 star read!” –Heather

“Ana and Dakota are back for the final book to this amazing trilogy. This book will have you turning the pages just to see what will happen next. It is filled with action and adventure as well as the perfect hero and heroine, who have a love that is stronger than anything thrown their way. A perfect ending.” –Melissa.

Book 3 did not disappoint! Ana and Dakota come back swinging in this book, it will suck you in! I enjoyed learning more about the world(s) and Ana’s magic. thank you for your your words and imagination Jessica!” -Heather B.
