SYNOPSIS:

The gods never sleep…

As the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos lights up every room with laughter and smiles. But there are darker forces at work, and they want to snuff out her light forever.

Cooper Hanover is a hardworking paramedic who healed Lia after a fire, but something happened that day, something medical science couldn’t explain. And if he doesn’t figure out how it works soon, the next healing could kill him.

Lia’s smile and sharp wit tempt him to love again, and he’s not going to let anyone, not even the gods, take her from him.

The Prophecy“Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse.”

EXCERPT

She laughed and something warmed inside of him. Her dark eyes met his. “Have you ever had a secret that involved other people, and you couldn’t share it without exposing them? I have to be really careful.”

He rubbed his forehead. “And swimming is going to help?”

“It might.” She popped forward in her seat and covered his hand in both of hers. “Tell you what? Come swim with me, and I’ll give you a free haircut.”

He laughed again before he could stop himself. “You don’t have to bribe me for a chance to see you in a bathing suit.”

She flipped her hair back with a twinkle in her eyes. “Is that a yes?”

 

“Sure. When?”

 

“After pizza.”

 

“You have a pool?”

 

“Yeah. You have swim trunks?”

“Not on me.” He couldn’t help but laugh again. “But I’m wearing boxers, will that work?” She nodded, and he picked up his slice of pizza. “This is the weirdest date I’ve ever been on.”

She grinned. “I’ll take that as a compliment.”

And it was. He’d had plenty of dates and a handful of relationships in the past, but he hadn’t laughed this much since… Hell, he couldn’t even remember.

***

Lia made Trinity swear to stay in the condo. If she was going to nonchalantly search Cooper for a crescent-shaped birthmark, she didn’t want witnesses. Lia stepped into the shallow end of the swimming pool, grateful it was heated. Not that Crystal City had much in the way of seasons. It was almost always sunny, but fall nights like tonight were chilly.

 

The back door opened, and Cooper walked toward the pool. Lord. She prayed her jaw wasn’t hanging open. His broad shoulders were muscled—heck, all of him was covered in muscles—and his skin was tan. On his bicep, he had a single tattoo of the caduceus, which symbolized medicine and healers.

 

She forced her eyes up to his face. “Come on in. The water’s fine.”

 

Instead of walking into the shallow end from the steps, he took two running strides and dove into the deep end. He was like a sexy bullet shooting through the water, breaking the surface right in front of her. Without thinking, she placed her hand on his chest.

 

He covered her hand with his and bent closer. “Is anyone going to come out needing you to set an alarm?”

 

“I’ll break their arm,” she said, her pulse racing.

 

He smiled as he closed the distance between their lips. His kiss was warm, soft, and knee weakening. She ran her hands up his chest, lacing her fingers around the back of his neck as his hands caressed the small of her back. The second her bare belly pressed against him, heat smoldered low inside of her.

 

Gradually, his tongue teased her lips, coaxing her to open for him. She moaned as she explored his mouth. He bent his knees, his hands sliding lower to grip the back of her thighs. He straightened, lifting her as she wrapped her legs around his waist. A rumble vibrated through his chest, and he tipped his head to the side, deepening the kiss until every inch of her ached for his attention.

 

She brushed her lips against his, her teeth catching his lower lip for a second before she made herself pull back. Blinking her eyes open, she gasped for air. “Okay. That was totally worth the wait.”

 

He brought one hand out of the water to cup her cheek and caressed her skin with his thumb. “Definitely.”

If you love

urban fantasy, supernatural suspense, magical realism, and paranormal romance,

you’ll love my novels.

 Ms. Sinclair

gives credit to the development of her imagination and passion for writing to

multiple childhood destinations lacking indoor plumbing. It may sound odd, yet

when your journey to adulthood consists of numerous backpacking, camping, and

hiking trips to the most out-of-the-way and breathtakingly beautiful places in

North America, the creation of games, worlds, and characters are the results.

She would never trade the childhood her parents gave her, and she thanks them

for raising her to have her own thoughts, dreams, and bountiful imagination.

Oh, and she wishes to thank them for teaching her that one should never leave

their jeans on the floor of an Everglades campground shower—lest they do the

dance of the scorpions in the pants again!

 While

attending college, Ms. Sinclair studied biological sciences and psychology,

specifically animal behavior, but her love has forever been to write. There are

boxes in her house filled with notebooks, journals, and logs with poems,

stories, lyrics, and personal rants scratched into them with pencil, marker,

pen, whatever she could get her hands on. Words demanded to be thrown out of

her mind and onto paper by any means necessary. Ms. Sinclair’s studies have

contributed greatly to the worlds, characters, and stories she creates, proving

that no matter what path you take, it will all be part of where you end

up—sometimes in spectacular ways!

 Since 2007,

Ms. Sinclair calls Coastal Virginia home where she is a licensed school

counselor currently following her dreams as a professional author & content

writer. Ms. Sinclair’s writes magical realism, paranormal romance, adult urban

fantasy, YA epic fantasy, and romantic fantasy novels.
