Shifting Magick Trilogy Book 2
A Shifter and Witch Paranormal Short
Publisher: After Glows (May 12, 2015)
Audrey Kelly has given up. As the middle sister, she is required to mate with a male kissed by the gods in order to break her part of the Kelly curse. An impossible task, even for a witch. However, when her older sister mates with a descendant of the moon goddess, Audrey’s hope is renewed. Her new brother-in-law claims that his brother could be the one to break Audrey’s curse. But could Lucian really be her one true mate?
Sentinel leader, Lucian Scott has no desire to find a mate. He’s content with his single life. Or so he thought until a curvy, little witch comes into it. The mating urge slams into him almost immediately, and his need to possess Audrey in every way possible makes it unbearable to stay away from her. Too bad his brother, the Alpha, has given him a direct order to do just that. Keeping his distance until the so-called time is right may just be the death of him, but Audrey is definitely worth the wait.
This book was a gift from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Audrey’s curse is slightly more complicated than her sister Olivia’s. Her mate needs to have been kissed by the Goddess. She fears she will be alone, but she can’t deny her attraction to Lucian.
Lucian doesn’t have time for a mate, but the fates aren’t always accommodating to what one wants. Audrey is beyond any doubt his mate. As he attempts to make that a fact Sawyer stops him in his tracks and leads into one of my favorite scenes in the book.
“Sawyer,” Lucian growled, not bothering to hide his annoyance.
“Diana isn’t feeling well and needs a ride home,” Sawyer spoke loud enough for Audrey to hear him as she fled to where her sisters waited.
Setting his jaw, Lucian held his brother’s stare while he waited for Audrey to get out of earshot. Irritation clouded his thoughts. Why had his brother interfered? After a long moment of holding the Alpha’s narrowed-eyed stare, Lucian lowered his shoulders. “She’s my mate.”
“Then why did you stop me?”
Sawyer raised one broad shoulder. “You can’t claim her yet. It has to be under the Hunter’s Moon.”
Confusion clouded Lucian’s mind, and he began to think Sawyer was losing his. “What are you talking about?”
“It’s part of her curse. At least it is what Olivia believes. You can’t claim her until the full moon.” Sawyer turned and disappeared into the trees.
What the hell was his brother talking about? “Sawyer!”
“I mean it. Don’t mate with her until the full moon.”
Fuck. Sawyer was a stubborn ass. His tone in the last statement told Lucian he wasn’t getting any more answers. The Hunter’s Moon was two weeks away.
Lucian would go mad waiting that long to see his mate again. On second thought, Sawyer hadn’t said not to seduce the curvy minx.
Be sure to have lots of cool drinks and at least one fan for this book. You know you should stay hydrated while reading something this hot. Another perfect beach/pool read! I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for the next installment in this series. June seems so far away!
