Gypsy Magic: Wyatt…Garner…Andrei…each of these compelling stories ends with an HEA for the hero and heroine. But only the full set will finally get to the bottom of the murder mystery. Be sure to read them all!
Excerpt from Andrei:
“Go to hell, Andrei Sobatka!”
“Too late. I already have an intimate acquaintance with the place.”
She turned and again tried to escape, but he grabbed her forearm and swung her back against a column. As fast as he’d ever moved, he slashed her arms up above her head and pinned them there, his long fingers gripping her delicate wrists. He could feel her pulse race. Then he pinned her body to the pillar with his.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” she asked with a gasp.
What was he doing? Most likely being a fool. He couldn’t help himself. Apparently she was having the same problem, for he sensed need trembling through her, saw deep into her darkening amber gaze where desire for him smoldered. He knew what women wanted—Gypsy magic, Lizzie would call it—and it was both a blessing and a curse. Nothing could come of such torture, not anymore, not for him, but memory plagued him and for a moment he allowed himself the fantasy.
Dipping his head toward her hair, he inhaled her scent, as rich and ripe as Mother Earth, a combination of magnolia soap and fine leather and horseflesh. He remembered that combination of scents. Remembered more. Considering the way she froze, the way her breath came in little catches, he suspected she remembered, as well.
Miss Elizabeth Granville, debutante, was held fast to the spot, licking her lips, as nervous as a cat. He almost gave way to temptation and licked them, too.
With a sardonic laugh, he backed off and saluted her. “Tell your daddy that Andrei Sobatka is looking for him.”
She said nothing, merely stared at him as he leaped off the porch, not even touching the stairs. He felt her gaze on his back as he swiftly moved off. The sensation never left him, not until he disappeared from sight and made his way back through the bayou and across the road to the carnival grounds.

Discover heart-racing intrigue in this Thriller Short of romantic suspense.

Originally published in LOVE IS MURDER (2013),

edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown.

In this paranormal Thriller Short, New York Times bestselling author Patricia Rosemoor blends straight detective work with a delicious supernatural twist. Homicide detective Shelley Caldwell and her lover Jake, a photographer, each hold pieces of the puzzle connecting three murders deemed suicides. But the detective can hardly explain to her superiors that powerful paranormal forces are at work—she’s already been hauled in for one psych evaluation—and neither she nor Jake is exactly sure how to end this supernatural force’s murdering spree. Their answers come the hard way, and with them, the ultimate power proves its mastery over the natural and the supernatural.
