Bad Things Always Come In Threes…
As a thief, I'm good at three things: hiding in the shadows, getting in and out unseen, and uncovering secrets. I put these skills to work for the Sinclair Family, one of the magical mobs that run the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls.
Everyone knows Victor Draconi wants to take over all the other Families--and kill every last Sinclair. What they don't know is that I'm on to him, and no way will I let the man who murdered my mom get away with hurting all the other people I care about. Especially when I've got places to break into, stuff to steal, and Devon Sinclair fighting right by my side…
“Relax, Lila.” Devon turned so that he was facing me, his hands dropping to my waist. “Felix will shut up once we actually get close to the mansion. He knows how important this is. We all do.”
I nodded. “You always know just what to say to make me feel better.”
He grinned. “That’s part of being a good boyfriend, right?”
I looped my arms around his neck. “The best boyfriend.”
Devon stared at me, his green eyes glimmering like dark emeralds. My gaze locked with his, and my soulsight—my magic—kicked in, letting me look into the depths of his heart and feel all of his warm happiness flooding my chest as if it was my own emotion. In a way, it was my own emotion since I felt the exact same thing whenever I looked at Devon, whenever I heard his voice, whenever I made him laugh or smile or brightened his day in any way.
I stood on my tiptoes and pressed my lips to his. Devon’s arms tightened around me, and he kissed me back, our lips crashing together time and time again, until I felt as though we were spinning around and around in dizzying circles, even though we were standing still.
“Any time you two lovebirds are ready!” Felix called out, his voice loud enough to make the rockmunks on the forest floor scurry into their stone dens.
Devon and I broke apart, both of us breathing hard and holding on to each other.
“Unfortunately, duty calls,” he murmured in a husky voice. “To be continued later?”
I grinned. “You’d better believe it.”
When did you start writing?
JE: Thanks for hosting me on your blog. I appreciate it.
I wrote my first book one summer while I was in college. It wasn’t a very good book, but I’d been bitten by the writing bug, and I’ve been writing books ever since then.
What makes you want to write?
JE: I write so that I can tell the stories that I want to tell. I like to read books with a little bit of everything in them – magic, action, adventure, danger, and romance. So those are the kind of books that I like to write too.
Who is your favourite character in Bright Blaze of Magic?
JE: Oscar is a really fun character for me to write. Even though he’s a pixie and is only about six inches tall, he really is a larger-than-life character with a lot of personality. I always enjoy writing his scenes.
What is your favourite book in the series?
JE: Bright Blaze of Magic, the third book, is probably my favorite book in the series, since it has a lot of action in it from the beginning all the way to the end.
What is your favourite film and TV show?
JE: I’m really enjoying all of the superhero movies and TV shows right now, like the Marvel movies, Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl.
Happy reading, everyone!
