Excerpt

A loud,
metallic click sounded from the other side of the room. Then footsteps raced
around the couch.
“Hannah?
Are you okay?” Ian’s voice drew her gaze to his concerned face.
“What
did you do? What are you?” She gulped, unsure if she wanted an answer to
that.
He
frowned, and a muscle clenched in his jaw. “I’m a technomage. I use and
simulate magic through technology.”
“What?”
She pressed the back of her hand to her forehead. Pain formed at her temples.
“Whoa. How long have you…?”
“Since
puberty. My mother was also a technomage.” He shrugged a shoulder. “It’s
always been part of who I am. I’m just pretty good at hiding it.”
She
blinked. Wow, his mother had seemed so normal when she’d met his parents. Had
she really known him? He seemed like a stranger. No, she wouldn’t throw away
their memories together because he’d hidden part of himself. She wouldn’t do
that to him. Or she’d try not to, at least. “Were you ever going to tell
me? Like if things had progressed between us?”
He
helped her up and grabbed the blanket, keeping her covered. “I would have,
eventually. Wouldn’t be nice of me to do otherwise, you know?”
She
nodded and stared into his brown eyes. “I’ve missed you.”
He
released a breath and rested his forehead against hers. “I’ve missed you
too. God, I really screwed things up, didn’t I?”
Placing
her hand against his chest, she angled her face to brush her lips against his.
“We both did.”
Ian ran
his hand through her hair, cupping the back of her head before deepening the
kiss. His mouth possessed hers like a thirsty man at a well. He always kissed
hard and desperately, and she loved it.
Ian
scooped her into his arms, making her feel desirable. He carried her into the
bedroom and kicked the door shut. Crossing the room, he set her down and ran
his hands over her neck, shoulders, and down to her hips.
“You’re
so beautiful, Hannah. I missed out on a lot when –“
“Hush.
Don’t think about that. We’re together now.” She drew his face down to
hers, kissing him.
He held
himself over her, obviously being careful of her wounded state. She appreciated
that, but part of her didn’t care about the injury, she just needed him.
He
stiffened and glanced over his shoulder, looking at the door. She followed his
gaze to see the gnome peeking inside.
“Sorry
to disturb the party. As much as I’d like to listen to you two HAVE SEX,
there’s stuff to be done!” Bernard looked as happy as ever, and she so
wanted to wipe that cheerfulness off his face.
Yet he
was right. Damn it. She still needed to check out the donut shop. There was a
possibility they might find evidence of a struggle that they could bring to the
police. But hadn’t she heard a couple weeks back about someone spreading rumors
of police involvement with MAX Home Security? Ian rolled next to her and placed
his hands over his face. He let out a ragged sigh. “Fine. We’ll be out in
a moment.”
“No
more SEX!” The gnome slammed the door behind him.
“Why
do you put up with him?” she asked.
“I
don’t know. He tends to be okay. Most of the time, that is.” He propped up
on his elbow and ran a fingertip along her arm. “He’s dangerous, though.
Don’t antagonize him. He causes suicide. That’s what happened to his previous
owner. I happened to be nearby, and Bernard started following me no matter what
I did.”
“How
do you keep him from killing you?” Hannah frowned.
“I
keep him happy enough. Besides, my power doesn’t let him impact me much.”
He glanced back at the door. “Unfortunately, we need to get going before
he bursts in here again.”
She
nodded and stared down at the quilt. “Would be easier if I had something
to wear. I saw your living room floor; you cut my blouse off.”
He
sighed. “Right. Well, I can give you some sweatpants and a T-shirt. Guess
we’ll need to do some clothes shopping.” Cocking an eyebrow at her, he
smiled. “Not that I mind.”
“Okay,
what did you do to the Ian I know? You used to hate when I took you
shopping.” She grinned.
Ian
shrugged. “I’m just glad to do stuff with you now. I’m not like I used to
be.” He glared at the door before glancing back at her. “Trust
me.”
“I
do.” She nodded. “With my life.”
His lips
thinned into a pink line. “I’m going to do everything I can to make you
safe again. I swear.” He caressed his thumb along her jaw line and brushed
his lips against hers once more before getting out of bed.
