Enjoy an excerpt from ALEJANDRO’S SORCERESS by Alyssa Day ...
Alejandro had only taken a single step toward the front door of the small house when a woman who looked like sunshine walked out, and his entire world shifted on its axis.
She was stunning, but he’d seen beautiful women before. This one—she was somehow different. Her hair was a lush fall of gorgeous golden blond, but her athletic figure was neither model-thin nor lusciously curved. Her face was captivating, though—something about the combination of her individual features packed a punch right to his gut. Maybe her lips, or her elegant bone structure. Maybe her eyes.
They were so blue that he almost couldn’t believe they were real, and they were snapping with fire, impatience, or annoyance. He couldn’t decipher her emotion from her eyes alone, but something about her made him want to spend hours trying.
It took him another beat to realize that her lips were pressed together in a firm line. When she put her hands on her hips—gently rounded hips that clearly had been made for a man to hold--even he, blinded by the most immediate case of raging lust he’d ever felt, could see that she was angry about something.
He tried to focus on the job. He told himself that she’d probably have a terrible personality. He reminded himself that she was a witch, and then it hit him. She projected a sense of power—a feeling of barely leashed magic—that somehow transformed her into the most fascinating woman he’d ever seen. Maybe it was some kind of spell? She was a witch, after all, and he had never reacted like this before.
His libido didn’t care about the why. It just wanted to get her naked, which was damn stupid under the circumstances and therefore made him suspicious.
“So. You must be the P-Ops guys. Let me guess; you’re from the government and you’re here to help?” Sarcasm and something else, maybe annoyance, coated her words, but her voice was musical and so sexy that he wanted to hear her talk all night long.
Well. Maybe not all night.
She was breathing hard, and Alejandro tried not to notice the way her breasts pressed against her shirt. He was a professional agent, damn it, not a horny kid. He fumbled for his badge, but Mac beat him to it.
Mac moved around the car, holding out his hand. “Mac Henson and Alejandro Vasquez, ma’am. You have a basilisk problem?”
Right. The basilisk. Alejandro snapped into action and opened the trunk of the car. He pulled out a shotgun, extra ammo, and a helmet with a darkened visor to protect himself from the basilisk’s deadly gaze.
“Where is it? Is anybody harmed?” he asked, heading back toward the house.
The woman’s mouth twitched, and he could have sworn he saw a smile curve her lips, but it was gone so fast that maybe he’d imagined it. “I’m Rose Cardinal. Are you sure you’re ready for this? That might not be enough protection.”
Alejandro’s gaze snapped to Mac, who strode back to the trunk to suit up.
“We’re ready, ma’am,” Alejandro said, his confidence in his skills and training overriding his tongue-tied fumbling. She must have put a spell on him. He’d never reacted to a woman at first glance like this before. Not even to Maria.
“Are you presently casting any spells?” he asked bluntly. Surely that kind of beauty had to be helped along by magical glamour.
She laughed out loud this time. “No, officer, I’m not bewitching you in any way. Don’t you have some kind of magic meter?”
He did, in fact, have a dial on his agency-issued watch that reacted with different colored lights in the presence of magic. He’d forgotten about it, like an idiot. He glanced down at it and saw that the dials remained dark. No magic detected whatsoever.
“It’s agent, not officer,” he said. “But you can call me Alejandro.”
“Call me Rose,” she responded, and an intriguing hint of pink appeared on her cheeks.
