My Sexy Saturday: Sexy Today for another Sexy Saturday! This one is simple: Sexy Today and it is an open theme. I've picked a WIP piece for his blog hop. In this story two powerful magic users are struggling to get past their differences. Don't forget to check out the other great blogs along the hop!

Just Beyond Daybreak snippet:

The dominating tone in her voice made that anger snap and he grabbed her again, spinning her around and pressing her back to the dingy brick wall. She tried to lash out at him with her free hand, but he quickly pinned that one along with the other. Taking it a step further, Malcolm leaned his full body into her. Bowing his face so close to hers that he could see shock and a touch of fear in her eye. “Listen here, Miss Blackburn. I don’t give a damn about your Dragon’s Eye, but I do care about my spell books and one of them is missing. What do you have to do with that?” Malcolm snarled.

Her breathing was heavy, and every breath pressed her breasts against his chest. Any other time he would not risk this closeness, but anger and determination was stronger than lust alone. He watched her pink tongue slip over her lush bottom lip and waited for her answer. It seemed to take her a second to gather words, but when she did answer him he was surprised that her voice was unwavering. “I told you it might happen. I warned you, but you didn’t give a damn then.”

Letting out a little growl of frustration, Malcolm said, “My book, Meredith? Where is it?”

“I don’t know. That’s why I came to you. To track down whoever stole the Dragon’s Eye. They must have taken your spell book too,” Meredith said through gritted teeth. “Now are you going to let me go?”

He could see the sparks of magic shooting through her eyes now. Her own anger must have been held on a tight leash to reel in the temper he knew she had. Normally the hot blooded woman would have blasted him faster than he could blink. She would have fought tooth and nail before letting him put her in this position, but not now. Still pressed up against her, Malcolm lowered his voice to a husky whisper. “You’re magic’s fading, Meredith.”

She let out a little gasp as he said the words. She knew her magic was leaving her and like him she knew what that meant. Without the magic flowing through her veins her body would stop, unable to function without the borrowed power. Slowly her tension faded away and she sagged against the wall. Malcolm’s heart nearly broke when Meredith’s bowed head gave a little nod. Relaxing his hold on her wrists, he fought the urge to wrap her in a comforting hug and took a step back instead.
With her head still bowed and her blood tinted hair hanging over her face, Meredith softly said, “I didn’t steal your book, Malcolm, but I have to get the Dragon’s Eye and I bet wherever it is your book is too.”

That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed.

Peace and Love!
