A long time ago, in almost another life, I used to write book reviews for an online site. I discovered so many fantastic authors that way, and many of them I still love. One of those authors I discovered was Jennifer Lyon, with the first book in her ‘Wing Slayer Hunter’ series, Blood Magic. Witches in hiding, the sexy, dangerous men hunting them, what’s not to like?
When I worked for seven years at Borders, I always had romance readers looking for something new, and if they were looking for paranormal romance, it’s a safe bet that I handed them that book or, if they were some of my regular readers, the latest in the series since I would have already hooked them at the beginning. Now I am absolutely thrilled to get to share a little bit of the latest book in the series with you. And make sure you read all the way through to the end, because there is so much awesomeness here, including an excerpt and a giveaway!
Caged Magic Blurb
Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.
Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.
But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.
Now, how about a little bit of story for all of you?
The ache he’d just satisfied tingled, heat spreading at the thought of him inside her. He’d been patient, seducing her, showing her she could trust them. Time for her to do her part. They both needed to seal the bond. But she’d never forget this moment with him.
Even when he hated her later for lying.
Anxiety edged in, but Risa held on to his gaze and slid her hand over his stomach. Jeez, the ridges of his muscles entranced her. The man felt as cut as he looked.
Focus. She knew how to do this. Reaching his belt, she—
He caught her hand. “Wait.”
“You feel the bird, right?”
She nodded. The sensation of the creature winging gently around her magic almost protectively resembled being hugged from the inside.
“He’s helping you harness the magic. Let’s see if we can find your girl, now. As long as you feel him, he’ll keep you safe.”
Startled, she stared up into his eyes filled with wings. This man constantly surprised her. “Don’t you want to break your curse?”
“Fuck yes. Even more than that, I want you, want to feel you, to take our pleasure together.”
“Then…” She tried to understand. Kendall was his ace card, the one he could play to make sure she gave him that. “Why wait?”
“Because more than all that, I want you to be free to choose, Risa. Right now, you’ll choose to do this for Kendall. And God, baby, I respect the hell out of that. But it’s not what I want.”
Confusion spiraled. “What do you want?”
His gaze pierced hers. “For you to do this because you want to, not because you have to.”
Hot tears threatened, and her chest ached. Why? Dear God, why did Linc, this man who’d endured being sold by his mother, caged and used in ways that she couldn’t fathom, why did he have to be so kind to her?
I’m already in love with Linc, how about you? Ready to track him down and take him home? Me, too. And you can find him in all of the following places:

I hope if you haven’t read any of the books in this series, you’ll want to give them a try now. Not only am I really ready for Linc’s story, I feel the need to go back and start from the beginning of the series now. I haven’t read some of these books in much too long.
