Today I’m sharing an excerpt from A WARLOCK’S DESTINY (Reluctant Mates, Book 4)!
Here’s the blurb:
Isabelle Turner, a librarian known as the only powerless witch in the Mythical Realm, has been on more human dates than she can count. Unfortunately, the evenings always end the same, with her wishing she could turn her date into a toad. When she receives a summons from the Council, she’s convinced they’re going to push her into the human world for good. Instead, they force her to take a mate.
Liam Waverly is the most powerful warlock in the Mythical Realm. When the Council brings up mating, he knows their choice will be an accomplished witch to match his strength. When they try and force him to mate with the powerless witch, he decides to seek out his own mate, but fails.
In order to sustain the numbers of all mythical beings, the Council, the governing body of the Mythical Realm, intervened and found prosperous matches for several of their subjects. Rather than create an act of treason, punishable by death, Isabelle and Liam agree to mate. The mating bond is sacred, but several disastrous incidents push them apart, starting with Liam’s desire to mate with another. When Liam finds out Isabelle’s secret, they agree to work together, but it will take more than a tentative friendship to keep evil from destroying them both.
Here’s the excerpt:
Liam Waverly listened as the woman in the bathroom flushed the toilet and washed her hands. He and Kira had been dating on and off for several months, and though the sex was good, it wasn’t great. Every time they got together they always ended up in his bedroom and she got up to leave the minute they were done. He knew he should feel something when the time came for her hasty exit, but he only felt relief.
Kira was a warlock’s dream. Her powers weren’t as strong as his, but finding a witch or warlock with his skill level proved nearly impossible. His father had been the most powerful warlock known to date and his sister, Sequoia, held a seat on the Council.
Kira had skill though, and her success as a witch couldn’t be overlooked. Her achievements, combined with her beautiful tan skin, long blond hair and petite curvy package ensured any warlock would be lucky to mate with her. He should feel lucky to spend time with her, grateful to have sex with her, but he didn’t.
He couldn’t put his finger on it, but something was missing. He wanted to love her, wanted to want to build a life with her, but he didn’t feel anything for her beyond a casual friendship with benefits. To make matters worse, he had a feeling she felt the same way about him. She should want him, but she didn’t. Not forever anyway.
The bathroom door opened and Kira walked out, completely naked. She gathered up her clothes, then dropped them on the bed in a pile and got dressed.
“I’m going to take off. Thanks for inviting me over,” she said as she pulled on her denim capris.
“Anytime. Thanks for calling.”
