Shhh....... Don't Tell:

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from book 1 of the Spellbound Series, Entangled
IN THIS SCENE: After Graylee Perez is brought back to life she must pretend to be her twin sister Charlene while she’s stuck sharing her body. To “help” her out, Charlene has started a communications notebook instructing Gray on ‘How to be Charlene.’
“…for now I’m supposed to pretend to be Charlene?”
Mom brought a notebook over. “Yes, and your sister left some notes to help you out.”
Gray stared at the notebook a moment before taking it. She flipped it open.
No wearing your clothes in public. I will choose an outfit for you to wear to school on the days you’re me.
Hair must be worn down. No pig tails, pony tails, hair clips or goofy Princess Leia style buns on the side of your head.
No leaving the house without makeup. I have taped examples and tips in the following pages on how to create a smoky eye.
Gray flipped back to several pages of magazine print and step-by-step illustrated guides for creating a smoldering look. She flipped back to the front page.
No speaking to anyone at McKinley who isn’t on the approved list (see the following pages). Don’t even think about trying to visit with your old friends unless you want to get us committed to an insane asylum.
Absolutely no—UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES—having sex with Blake.
Gray looked up, her face still contorted. “Did you read this?”
Mom was putting away the brown sugar. “No, Charlene told me not to.”
“And you listened to her?”
Mom looked directly at Gray. “She said it was private.”
More like psychotic.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from book 2 of the Spellbound Series, Duplicity

IN THIS SCENE: Gray and her duplicate must abstract blood from the avenging warlock Adrian in order to remove his powers. Adrian isn’t aware that Gray is back in town or that there are two of her. Gray walks into his shop invisible, and the other Gray (“Lee”) enters in her new *supermodel* body.

Time to go. Gray had ignored the voice at Gathering. She wasn’t making the same mistake twice. Gray caught up to Lee and tugged at her arm, but Lee yanked it from her grasp and took one of her giant steps forward.
“I don’t know who you think you are, Adrian, but I have zero interest in you. And to answer your earlier question—yes, I do have a boyfriend!”
Adrian whipped around, grinning. “Adrian? Have we met before?”
Lee, realizing her mistake, attempted to shrug. “I’ve heard of you.”
Adrian grabbed her arm so quickly, Lee had no time to react, but Gray did. She snatched Lee’s other arm as Adrian snarled, “From whom?” His expression changed when Lee was yanked away from him, but Gray hadn’t pulled hard enough to free Lee fully from his grasp. Adrian’s grip tightened and they played tug-of-war for several seconds. “Who’s with you?” Adrian demanded.
Gray leaned backwards, pulling Lee with her.
“Show yourself,” Adrian said. “SHOW YOURSELF.”
Yeah, right, freak. Gray pulled Lee out of Adrian’s grasp while he was shouting and pushed her forward toward the door. The girls made a run for it, but Gray, being behind, felt fingers grasp at her blouse and pull her back. She screamed when a second hand dove down the front of her shirt.
Adrian screeched and retracted his hand. Blood trailed down his arm where Gray had bitten him. Gray looked at the blood wistfully, but it was time to make her escape. The bell above the door had already signaled Lee’s departure.
She never expected Adrian to make such a quick recovery. He lurched forward and got hold of her—sight unseen—threw her to the ground, and straddled her from above. She felt him grope around for her arms and pin them above her head. At least he couldn’t see the terror on her face. She tried to squirm and kick him, but he had her pinned down between his thighs.
“Who do we have here?” Adrian said. His breath emerged hot and heavy over Gray’s face. “Feels like a woman.” He leaned down. “Smells like a woman. Does she taste like a… ah… ack!” Adrian’s hands shot up to his head and he began madly scratching his scalp.
Maybe not as impressive as being able to fling someone halfway across the room using their mind, but the itchy spell still came in handy.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from book 3 of the Spellbound Series, Enchantment

IN THIS SCENE: Adrian’s grandmother returns in book three, accompanying him on his magic tour in Europe.

 “This food no good.”
Adrian’s Nan glared down at the plate of paella the waiter had set before her.
They were seated at an antique marble table attached to legs made of curly cast-iron supports. It was only noon, which made Adrian and his Nan the first lunch customers of the day. The Spaniards wouldn’t be out for their mid-day meal till closer to two.
Adrian was already three bites into his dish. “There’s nothing wrong with the food, Nan.”
“Food better in Paris.”
“Spanish food is fine. You just miss the pastries.”
“What wrong with pastries?”
Adrian grinned. “Come on, you have to admit it’s good to get out of the apartment.”
Nan scowled in answer.
His Nan had barely stepped foot outside since arriving in Barcelona two weeks prior.
“Why we come to Spain?”
“I told you. I had an opportunity to perform.”
“Perform!” Nan spat on the ground then tossed up her arms. “You perform plenty in Paris. I know why we come to Spain. The girl.”
Nan missed the look of warning on Adrian’s face.
“You almost kill yourself for this girl and still I no meet.”
“I did not almost kill myself for her. It doesn’t matter, anyway. She hates me.” She probably hated him even more after last night. It was of little consequence. Adrian had not expected to see Graylee Perez again, at least not this soon. Her mother had forbidden it. He smirked at the thought. No one forbade Adrian Montez anything.
Nan huffed. “Love. Hate. Doesn’t matter. You powerful warlock. Make girl love you.”
Adrian wasn’t above manipulation or the use of magic to get what he wanted, but in this instance the mere thought of it made him physically recoil. “I am Adrian Hedrick Montez. I will have a woman’s sincere love or I won’t have it at all.”
Nan huffed again.
Adrian smiled slowly. “Besides, I already have the love of a good woman.”
Nan came the closest to a giggle as Adrian had ever heard. Her lips puckered into a brief smile and she actually took a bite of her food. But as soon as she’d swallowed, she leaned forward and asked, “When we return to Paris?”
It was like dealing with a four-year-old.

Now for a special surprise!
