Book Description: 
According to the fairy tales Layla read as a child, she’d stepped into one, but her perfect world has a price, and she may end up paying with her life….
Following three years of loneliness, twenty-one-year-old Layla Callaway suddenly has the extended family she always wanted, a beautiful home in Clatsop County, Oregon, her own prince charming, and the ability to perform astonishing magic. All should be well as she gets acquainted with the powers she never knew she had and the coven she never knew she belonged to, but she continues to mourn the circumstances that got her there while struggling to adjust.
Thankfully Layla has her prince charming – Quin Kavanagh – a gorgeous member of her coven who goes out of his way to take care of her. His gentle hands lead her everywhere, including realms of pleasure previously unknown, so when she learns of his playboy past and a hurtful secret he’s been keeping, her shaky world threatens to crumble.
And it couldn’t happen at a worse time.
Danger grows nearer. Obsessed with Layla’s ethereal beauty and immense power, Agro eliminates leads on his way to Oregon. But there’s a stranger lurking much closer to Layla’s new home, and he’s closing in quicker than anyone knows. 
Leaving a trail of tragedy in their wakes, both wizards crave what Layla has, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it.


Excerpt:

With the tray in one hand, the stranger magically donned the stolen jacket while riding the elevator toward his goal—a witch unlike any other, a witch with incomprehensible power. If he played his cards right, she’d be sharing that power with him very soon.
The elevator halted, and the stranger took a right down the hall, following the signs to room 358. He stopped on the threshold, straightened his collar then knocked on the door, inwardly cursing the nerves tightening his stomach.
Several seconds ticked by, and his impatience flared as he knocked again. Nothing.
Glancing left and right, he reached for the doorknob and magically disarmed the lock. Once he was in, he quietly closed the door behind him and scanned the room. The lights were off, the TV was silent, and the bed was made.
“This isn’t right,” he mumbled, moving further inside.
There wasn’t any luggage, no trash in the bins, and no clutter on the tables. He walked to the bathroom and flipped the light on. The vanity held nothing but complimentary soaps, and the sink and tub were dry. “Shit.”
She hadn’t stayed there last night. Where was she? And why didn’t she check out before going? Damn. This wasn’t what his visions showed him.
He returned to the main room and sat at the desk with the tray. No sense in wasting a good steak.
As he ate, he observed the chamber, watching the bed in which she may or may not have slept. Why did his prophesies consistently deny him the most important piece of the puzzle? It was as if the ethereal souls guiding his visions were deliberately thwarting him. Perhaps he would question them the next time he sought answers, which, apparently, would occur sooner rather than later.
As he loaded empty dishes onto the tray, he decided he would return to the front desk and see if Chelsea remained at her post. He could give her a sympathetic shoulder to cry on about David’s sudden misfortune, listen to her sob about how her boyfriend’s too young to suffer a heart attack and how fragile he looked as the paramedics wheeled him away. Then the stranger would offer reassurances interspersed with flirtatious sweet talk, and soon Chelsea would be spilling her guts about any information she held on his… sister.
If that didn’t work, he would get a room and wait for Layla’s return. He’d conceal himself and sit outside her door if that was the price to lay eyes on her again, to find the trail he lost in Oklahoma. Every thread of his existence was intertwined with hers. The witch shaped his life; he would travel to the ends of the earth and stoop lower than the deepest ocean if that’s what it took to shape hers.
