Volt must become a believer in the Magiks and allow his heart to heal. And Edi must learn to trust herself again.
Will a non-believer and a believer find love over Beltane?
~~~ EXCERPT ~~~
In the moment, Edi decided to go for a swim at the beach, and since she didn’t have swimmers, well she’s gone in starkers! After all, there was no one else at the beach. She was hoping the swim would clear her mind, especially how it was reacting to the rather sexy Volt.
Edi looked up shocked to see someone swimming toward her.
Panic rose within her. As the person came closer she realized it was a male, and she became really worried. Edi moved to the shallower water, hoping they would stay in the deeper water and maybe not even notice her. But she could tell from the strokes they weren’t paying attention.
Then she realized who it was. Volt. While she couldn’t quite see him, she sensed his energy. It was already affecting her.
How was this even possible?
For a dirty moment, she thought maybe it was a good thing, after all the thoughts she’d had of him all day and what she really wanted to do with him.
Hot sex. And lots of it. Now.
She ducked under the water, hoping the coolness would dampen her desires. It didn’t. She resurfaced with a gasp.
Maybe he won’t see me?
She lay low, keeping her head just above the water.
He was coming too close. Edi rolled her lips trying to think of what to do. It was becoming evident he was going to come too close and notice she was stark naked.
“Hey, Volt,” she yelled out.
He stopped swimming abruptly and looked up.
He waved back then started to come toward her.
“Stay there,” she shouted at him.
He looked confused. “Why?”
Despite the cool water she felt her cheeks flush with heat. “Just stay there, please, don’t come too close to me.”
He swam a little closer.
“Volt, I mean it.” There was panic thick in her voice. He can’t see me like this. A small part of herself wanted to know why not, but she didn’t listen to that part.
“All right, all right.” He stopped. The water wasn’t too deep for him, so he stood up, revealing his awesome sexy chest which had water streaming down it.
She cursed the Beltane energies that were building up inside her. She’d been trying to ignore them all day.
“You know I won’t hurt you.” He didn’t move any closer. “Seriously, I wouldn’t.”
Edi detected he was a little hurt at the idea she didn’t want him closer as he might be some sort of monster. If only he knew.
“I know you wouldn’t,” she said softly. She moved her arms back and forth to keep herself balanced, so only her neck and above was showing. A stronger waver moved over her, revealing her shoulders.
“What! Are you naked or something?” He chuckled.
“What!” He looked surprised. “It’s not that sort of beach, you know.”
“That sort of makes it worse.”
She could tell he was enjoying this just a little too much.
