About the Book:
Jules Hume
lives in a world where magic is a myth and supernatural creatures are
fiction—or so she thinks. As a strong, independent woman, a relationship is the
last thing she needs. Then she meets Ian Kincaid, a mysteriously sexy bachelor
with otherworldly charm. She’s instantly enamored of him, drawn by an
inexplicable magnetism. Ian awakens something magical inside her, opening her
mind to things she never thought possible. Things that shouldn’t be possible. But Ian has secrets Jules is better off not
knowing. The truth will tear her world apart, making her question everything
she once knew to be real.
 
“Who
is that?”
Beth
looked up to see who I was
talking about. “Oh. Umm…that’s just Ian. He owns the place…So, Mom. Have you
worked on any interesting cases at work?” She was trying to draw my attention
away from the gorgeous man.
“He’s beautiful.” I wasn’t interested in
talking about work. I wanted to know more about Ian. “Is he married?”
“No, but Mom. Seriously. Don’t waste your
time.”
“He doesn’t…date,” Cameron added.
“Is he gay?” I spared a glance for Cameron to
see his reaction but quickly fixed my gaze back on Ian.
“No. He’s definitely not gay.” Cameron
chuckled. “He’s just very…picky.”
“Picky. Hmm…”
And then it happened. Ian looked right at me.
Our eyes met, and something inside me burned. It started in my core, and a heat
pulsed out through me. My body ached to be close to him. I shivered, and he
smiled. I smiled back, then looked away; the intensity of the eye contact was
too much for me. If I believed in love at first sight, I would have said this
was it. But I didn’t…believe in love at first sight, that is.
“He’s coming over here,” I whispered to Beth.
“Uh-oh.” She looked at Cameron.
“Beth, Cameron, it is so good to see you,”
Ian said. He looked at each of them, and then his eyes focused on me as he
spoke. “You must introduce me to your friend, Beth.”
I felt electricity prickling my skin, and it
gave me goose bumps. I couldn’t take my eyes off him. Even under the dress
shirt and tie, I could tell his body was exquisite. My fingers twitched with
the urge to touch him.
“This is my mom, Jules. Mom, this is Ian.”
She looked at him incredulously; then she looked at me and back at Ian again.
“May I join you?” Ian asked as he pulled out
the empty chair. He didn’t wait for an answer. “Is Jules short for another
name?”
“It’s Juliann, but everyone calls me Jules.”
“Juliann.” The syllables rolled off his
tongue like music. My heart melted when he said my name. “Cameron, will you
please go tell the kitchen to make two of whatever Juliann has ordered?”
“Of course,” Cameron said, and he hurried off
obediently.
“Beth, you did not tell me you had such a
beautiful mother. How could you keep such a secret from me?” He smiled
beautifully as he spoke, and I was enamored. Beth was shocked.
“Umm…Sorry?”
He laughed a deep, masculine laugh and
touched her shoulder. “Do not apologize, Beth. I’m only teasing you.” Then he
turned to me and took my hand. He raised it up to his mouth and gently kissed
it. “You are a vision of beauty, Juliann. I must get to know you better. Are
you free tomorrow night?”
I felt my eyes growing wide as I tried to
force myself to speak. I couldn’t get the words out; I was so flustered by the
magnificent man sitting next to me. Luckily, the waiter brought out our food,
so I had a little time to compose an answer…or at least to compose a coherent
sentence.
“Umm…Yeah, I think I’m available.”
“Wonderful,” he replied
with a dazzling smile.
