Book Description:

Just when newly minted ASSET agent Sage Cynwrig thought she was getting the hang of this whole magic thing, a smooth-talking Djinn moves in next door. And he's got more on his mind than making her wishes come true.

He'll have to take a number. Between her sharp-tongued, machete wielding partner Grey, and Zack the flirtatious vampire-for-hire, Sage has enough magical men making her life hell. 

And then there's the new job. It's all hands on deck at ASSET. Magical creatures are disappearing from the Las Vegas Strip. Rumor has it, the missing creatures are ingredients in a forbidden magical recipe. Someone's attempting to recreate the lost Amulet of Emmuri, and gain power to rival the gods.

Because of course Sage's first official assignment as an agent would require her to, you know, save the world!

To accomplish that, however, she'll have to cross enemy lines and break the very magical laws she just swore to uphold.

A Taste of Your Own Magic
Sample Chapter 1


Zack launched himself forward with impossible speed, closing the gap between them before she could register the movement. His hand found her mouth, preventing her shocked
gasp from escaping. Zack stood nose-to-nose with her, so close she could feel
the heat from his breath. “Sweet girl. So naïve to the dangers surrounding you;
innocent to the true nature of the world.” His eyes grew darker, choking out
all of the color that gave them their unnatural beauty. All predator, ready to
strike, he pinned her against the apartment door. “Words lose their meaning
with creatures like you. Headstrong. Impulsive... The only thing you learn from
is failure.” The timbre of his voice deepened; his breathing slowed to a
determined rhythm of raw desire. “A tempting target, giftwrapped for anyone
willing to snatch you up.”
Zack let his hand fall from her mouth but kept her pinned to the door with his body. Close
as he was, his eyes weren’t the only thing Sage focused on.
Those teeth.
Sharp as daggers. She’d experienced the sting of a vampire’s fangs once before, and that
memory made her scars itch. “You’re acting like a real jerk right now, Zack.”
“I know.” He flashed those teeth at her again. “And don’t think I can’t hear how excited it
makes you. Admit it. You’re more than a little turned on right now.”
A knot formed in her throat. She swallowed hard, forcing it down so she could speak. “Excited is not the word I would have chosen.” Her voice cracked, betraying the panic she
was so desperate to hide. This wasn’t the Zack she knew; he’d morphed into
something dangerous, and she couldn’t tell how real his threats were.
“Pick a word then,” he taunted. “Make it a good one.”
“Stop.” She pushed against him, but found his body an immovable wall. “You’re creeping me
out.”
“Fear, is it?”
Zack laughed coldly. “Good. You should be afraid. Most don’t survive being
bitten.” His breath blew against her skin, surprisingly warm, but the effect
chilled her blood.
“The last one who bit me didn’t survive.” She attempted again to mask the tremble of her
voice with the threat.
“Grey, your great protector, was there to save the day. Where is he now?” Zack’s words
struck her like a slap to the face, but before she could respond, he bent his
head to the crook of her neck.
She cringed, expecting pain that did not come.
“I could have you right now.” Zack’s lips hovered, tantalizingly close to her throbbing
pulse. He inhaled slowly as if savoring every note of her scent. “But the real
question is, could you” – He lifted his head and met her eyes once more –
“would you try and stop me?”
Zack’s words implied so much more than a simple threat. …. She couldn’t let that happen.
But, being pinned against the door severely limited her options. Sage scrambled
for the right words to stall long enough to find a way out. “I thought Terras
were an acquired taste?” She reached down, toward her pocket.
Before she could dig for the knife she kept folded there, his knee came up, forcing her legs
apart, and he growled possessively in her ear.
“One taste of you was such a tease. I need more.”
More than just a bad boy, Zack was pure sin wrapped in a taut body with maybe centuries of
experience. A very small part of her, welcomed the excitement, but
self-preservation trumped desire. “Get used to disappointment!”
He nuzzled her neck and pecked a kiss at her racing pulse. “Don’t pretend you aren’t thinking
about it. I can smell your arousal. I can see the way you look at me.”
Her legs nearly went out from under her.


“You’re going to get yourself killed. I would be disappointed if someone else got to the prize
before me.” Zack pulled back enough to meet her eyes again. “Rather than fall
victim to the wrong sort,” he whispered, “let me have you.”
