 Sultry Nights
Excerpt from Sultry Nights
**note from Nicole: This was one of my favorite scene in the story. I hope you love it! Let me know in the comments.**

Crone spun her to face him.

“Either you fill this closet or I send you packing, and you can fend for yourself.”

“Why is this so important to you?” Double shit! “It’s only clothes for crying out loud.” She was screwed either way because if she tried her magic and got her usual results, he would likely toss her out anyway. If she refused, she faced the same fate.

“It just is, so I suggest you start singing your chants and rubbing your charms, or whatever it is you witches do.”

She wanted to be pissed. Oh hell, she was pissed, but he now had her backed into a literal corner with no place to run. She took in a deep breath to calm her nerves, but the opposite happened. His leather scent only boosted her sexual desire. Pull your shit together, Tessa. It’s only a damn closet full of clothes. She closed her eyes, searched for the words, and ran them through her mind. Magic circled her and caused her skin to prickle. Something’s happening. She cracked open one eye, afraid to see what she’d done but was pleasantly surprised.

“There. Happy now?” She placed her hands on her hips in satisfaction.

Crone looked into the closet and back at her. A brow lifted. “You call that pittance a closet full?”

“I don’t need much. Besides, I hate to waste,” she retorted, so done with this whole mess.

He cocked his head. “One pair of jeans and ten yellow tank tops is your idea of clothing?”

She lifted her chin. “Flip flops. Did you not notice the flip flops?”

He crossed his arms, biceps bulging, and leaned back on his heels. “Unless fashion has taken a drastic change, one still needs a matching pair which is not what you have.” His mouth curled in amusement.

She did a double take and looked down at the lone pair of sandals. One was bright pink with a silk flower on top and the other pale blue and made of terry. It was a damn bedroom slipper. “Shit.” She muttered and Crone’s amusement turned to full-blown laughter.

“I don’t need shoes anyway. After all, this is a beach,” she laced her voice with all the sarcasm she could muster.

His laughter died as quickly as it started, and he leveled his gaze. “Why don’t you tell me the truth. You don’t have a handle on your magic.”

“Don’t be absurd.” Before she could react, he had her caged to the wall and unable to move. If he stood any closer, they would touch in the most intimate way. She slammed her palms on his chest and shoved.

Nothing.

“You want me to move? You’ll have to make me. I may be physically stronger than you, but you’re a witch. You must have something in that bag of tricks of yours.”

Tessa’s face heated, and she commanded a jolt of energy to her fingertips. When nothing happened, she panicked. Her heart raced faster when she was greeted by a mooing sound, and Crone’s eyes widened. He released her and spun to face the disturbance.

She pushed up on her tiptoes and peered over his shoulder. “Oh, hell.”

He craned his neck to look back at her. “Really? That’s it? Oh, hell?”

“Sorry?” She gave a weak smile.

“There’s a fucking cow in the middle of the bedroom!” He walked toward the creature; words she didn’t understand poured from his mouth, but she was pretty sure she was better off clueless. Suddenly the cow raised its tail and let loose a steaming pile. Tessa covered her mouth and nose, but it failed to help.

“I’m more sorry than you know,” she mumbled through her hand.

Crone simply flicked his wrist and both the cow and its offending gift were gone. He pointed toward the door. “Go plant your ass in a chair, and this time if you insist on lying to me like a damn child then I will treat you like one.” A devilish grin plastered his face. “I will put you across my knee and paddle your ass like my father used to do to me when I created havoc.”

 my dividerMy review of Sultry Nights: 5 stars

QUICK SUMMARY: You have a witch who is due to be taken by a warlock (for the purpose of breeding an heir and eventually slaughtered) because of a family curse. She was instructed to seek the jinn Crone for help. Crone steps up because he feels responsible for the death of the witch’s grandmother. He’s sexy, she’s sexy, people are jealous, things happen. Those are all the details I’m going to share, because I don’t want to spoil anything. I may have said too much already.
WHAT I LIKED: I’ve been waiting for this story. I loved Spanish Nights, and I’ve been waiting impatiently for this continuance of the story. This can absolutely be read as a stand alone story, but if you are looking for something out of the ordinary for paranormal romance, this is the series for you. It’s steamy, suspenseful, fast paced, and the best writing to come from this author yet. For the first time, I felt complete when finishing this book. I didn’t have lingering questions about the story. I laughed, I cried, and I feared for my life because of the number of ways people get tortured in this story. (Alternate titles for this story: 900 ways to torture an immortal. Tessa, the Clumsy Witch). The story plays like a movie in your head and you get so wrapped up in it, you can easily read in one sitting, not even caring that you get a cramp from forgetting to move. IT’S SO GOOD.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: This will come as a shocker, but NOTHING. I felt like the whole story was in these pages. If it had been longer, I probably would have felt like it was going on too long and might have skimmed something just to get to the end. I mean, Sure, maybe there could have been an extra steamy scene or two. But probably not really. Because for as sexy as the stories are and the heat that melts the pages, it’s the action and character interactions that drive you through the story.I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. It doesn’t change my opinion.
