Bewitched by Beth Caudill


Guardian angel Leyna Angelheardt travels the world trying to guide children to their brighter futures. However, free will rules the human spirit, and after she loses three charges, her heart needs healing before she can continue her calling. Directed toward the magically protected town of Willows Haven, she faces her greatest challenge.

Vithar Woodward runs the small town newspaper with his twin brother. But his family harbors a dark secret: a century ago, an incubus cursed them to spend their days shapeshifted into animals. Now with only a few days until the curse culminates, Vithar knows his only hope is to find true love and nullify the curse. Yet he wonders who would ever love a man who spends half his days as a barred owl.

When Leyna and Vithar meet, it becomes clear that fate has drawn them together. As sparks dart between them, Leyna must decide if she should remain a guardian angel or embrace this new existence of loving a mortal.

For after all, what is more magical than true love?

Excerpt – PG

She took his left hand. “Why so gloomy?” Tingles followed the path her finger took along his life line. “An air of sorrow hovers around you.”
He stared into her eyes, afraid to say what trapped his heart. But while the bright green of her eyes—like a Granny Smith apple—spoke of age, there was an innocence about her that he didn’t want to taint.
Her eyes brightened, and she laughed. “Fear only consumes us the longer we hold on to it.”
“It’s not fear.” He closed his eyes, knowing it was a lie. “It’s not only fear. Somethings should not be shared with others.”
“Nothing is so malicious that light cannot provide the warmth of a shared burden.”
Her words were a blunt edge, tearing through his self-pity. Could he trust her?
What did he have left to lose?
“Over one hundred years ago, an incubus cursed my family. The spell expires in three days.”
“You don’t seem the type to engage with unsavory creatures.”
He shrugged. “It wasn’t me, exactly. The demon wanted my sister-in-law, and she told him no. He couldn’t stand not possessing her, so he cast a curse against us—Meli, Fremont, and me. Our parents died a few months after the curse was enacted. We’re the only family we each have left, and because of the terms, no one can lead a full life.”
“All curses can be broken. What do you have to do for yours?”
“I appreciate the thought, but you are too light-hearted to become drawn into this misery.”
“Are you sure you won’t let me help?”
As much as he wished to say yes, he still possessed a conscience. He wouldn’t be the one to blacken her soul. “Thank you, but no. This is our problem to solve.”
Her skin glowed a soft white. “I’m here to help when you’re ready.” Her voice contained an otherworldliness that lifted the hairs on the back of his neck.
Earlier when he’d attacked Doyle in his owl form, he’d thought it had been a chance meeting. That she helped an older gentleman and Doyle happened upon them. He missed a lot of nuances in his animal form.
Leyna definitely wasn’t mortal, but he was afraid she was something even more untouchable.
An angel.

Excerpt – Spicy

He twirled her around, clutching her to him. His head lowered, and then his lips were against hers. Her awareness splintered in his heated embrace. His hands roamed over her curves, and her breasts tightened, stretched against the fabric of her bra.
Desire darkened his eyes, a fierce concentration.
He lifted her shirt over her head, and she worked the three buttons on his polo shirt so he could strip it off. She ran her fingers over his muscled definition, his skin silky beneath her fingers.
He undid the clasp on her bra, and the air-conditioned room cooled her flesh. He turned her toward the bed. His hands cupped her breasts, and her head rested against his shoulder.
It should have felt strange, yet she felt empowered.
She nuzzled his neck, drawing in his masculine scent. Full of pine, fresh air, and an undertone of cloves. She licked his skin, feeling a mischievous desire to play. His groan brought a smile to her face.
He divested her of her clothes. Then stripped himself. His hungry gaze focused on her as if she appeased all his fantasies. A treat she’d never forget. She moved closer eliminating the distance between them.
His hand traveled across her skin, stirring unruly thoughts. He reached between her legs, and lazily drew his finger between her folds. She couldn’t stop herself from wrapping her hand around his semi-hard shaft.
She wanted to explore. To feel his silky skin. To lose herself in the chaos of emotions she’d long since forgotten. Filled with a craving she didn’t want to deny, she couldn’t help but push against him.
Wanting more.
He rolled on top of her. His legs were between hers, but his arms kept him above her. Not quite touching. His usually dark brown eyes were glowing with an intense desire. “Are you sure? There will be no going back for us.”
She pulled him close. “I appreciate the thought, but if you leave this bed, I’m going to have to tell the girls at the diner that you don’t need any more pie.”
He chuckled. “I have a much better use for it. Or at least, the whipped cream.” He squeezed her left breast and then sucked her hardened nipple into his mouth.
She moaned as ecstasy raced through her veins. Almost like freefalling through the sky.
He claimed her lips in a harsh kiss. He reached between them and rubbed the head of his cock against her. “Ready?”
She nodded. Tried to move to get him where she ached.
He slowly entered her. He stretched her, filled her as they became connected. Him to her and her to him. Fully seated, he clasped their hands together above her head. “Time to take a ride that emulates the winds.”
“Prove it.”
He moved. Driving her up further than the highest clouds. She gasped for breath, unable to stop the swell of emotions that swamped her. Their bodies generated so much heat. She had to grasp onto his shoulders. His frenzied movements pushed her to a destination she couldn’t comprehend.
She peaked and then arched as the pain of losing her wings ripped through her. Only to be suppressed under the euphoria that rolled over her. Too many sensations.
Vithar panted above her for a moment, and then he lifted himself from her. He walked across the room—she assumed to the bathroom.
She curled under the covers and let the darkness swallow her.
