MIdWeek Tease: Just Beyond Daybreak's start the celebration leading up to the release of Witching Hour Madness. This week's MidWeek Tease is brought to you from Just Beyond Daybreak.

This is the first book in the Star Crossed Series. Let's spy on Meredith and Malcolm for their first kiss!

Just Beyond Baybreak

Just as the throbbing caught her attention again, Malcolm said, “Nearly done. Are you okay?”
She nodded and answered, “Fine.” Slowly Meredith turned her head to catch a glance at the brand on her shoulder. She could just make out the upper crust of the circle. Moving her eyes up to look at Malcolm, Meredith wondered when she was supposed to get this extra magic and if she would even feel its arrival. “So it’s working?”
Malcolm looked up from a cloth he was using to wipe the chopstick. “Almost,” he said, setting the silver stick down. “Just one more thing to do.”
“Well, what’s that?” Meredith asked, turning her head back around. She was contemplating adjusting the camisole strap to cover the peek-a-boo of her bra when she was surprised by his hand taking hold of her unbranded shoulder and pulling her backwards. Meredith fell back and a sharp pain ran through her as his free hand caught the brand. He moved the other hand to cup her chin and tilted her head back. Then he was kissing her. For an instant it felt like Malcolm was stealing her very soul through his lips and she didn’t care. Instead she found herself wantonly kissing him back.
She watched his half-closed eyes from the odd sideways, almost upside down, angle. This was not a gentle, innocent kiss. This was a lust-provoking tease of lips and tongue. The feel of his palm pressed against the raw brand on her shoulder was scorching, but Meredith couldn’t call it pain. A tingle of magic seemed to pass from his hand into her as their lips devoured each other.
Realization that this was the connection Malcolm needed to link his power to hers set in, and some of the passion that had flared to life died away. As his lips slowly pulled away from her own, Meredith tried to mask her emotions. She fought back the urge to lean up for another kiss as she watched the tip of his tongue swipe over his top lip. “So, now it’s working?” Meredith asked, forcing herself to maintain eye contact with him.

What a kiss! With that touch their story deepens into a forbidden love.

Witching Hour Madness

The Witching Hour is upon them, and Meredith Blackburn finds herself navigating family politics and community gossip. When the doors lock down, so does her magic, and she starts to wonder about the foreboding feeling that has been tickling her neck all night.

With Meredith at his side, Malcolm Blackwood is ready to face the elite magic community he once ran away from. Asked to help track down a missing magical threat, he finds something more frightening than the golden ring in his pocket.

Can they stop an ancient threat? Or will the magic users be consumed?
