Part 2: DARK RECKONING meets BANISHED WITCH (for Part 1 please jump over to

Danni closed the door to her room and turned. The muscular man lying across her bed had a body that would bring any woman pleasure. But that wasn’t the only reason behind the magic she’d used to entice him to her room.

The man had secrets. Some of which might help Danni.

She hoped to discover a few which might help her protect her family. Crystal blue eyes swept repeatedly my long dark lashes, tracked her path to the bed. A large hand cupped her waist when she drew to a stop beside him.

“Did you tell me your name?” Steve appeared confused. Thanks to the special herbs she’d slipped into his drink.

“Oh, yes, you know my name.” She ran her hand down the center of his white cotton shirt and stopped on the button of his pant. A very nice budge lay under the material and Danni couldn’t stop herself from caressing the length.

“Wait a second.” Steve grabbed her hand and lifted it away from his body. The bed squeaked and he sat up.

A concern frown marred his face, and the man fidgeted like he was uncomfortable with her touch.

Black and white, she could tell the man didn’t see the gray areas in the world around him.

Danni couldn’t hold back the grin and stepped between his legs to lay one hand on his shoulder. She stared into eyes that reminded her of her childhood boyfriend, Omar. He had acted nervous too every time she’d gotten close. He’d always insisted that they had to wait until they were married.

Well, that certainly hadn’t worked out.

“I’m not going to hurt you. Matter of fact, I think we’ll both enjoy this encounter.” She edged closer and rubbed her breasts against his chest.

He sucked in a sharp breath and released her hand.

She took advantage of his mistake and slipped her arms around his neck. Need tingled down the center of her body. “The hunger to enjoy a woman is pulling you apart. You need a release from your passions.”

His alluring sense beckoned her and she melted against him. Her head falling forward, she ran kisses along his neck. “I can feel the dark water running through your veins. You are on a path to discover the truth, but…”

He stiffened and clasped his hands around her waist. “What are you talking about?”

“Well, I’m a witch. I see lots of things about person when I get near them.” Danni marveled at the shock, clouding his face.

Steve pushed her away and stood. “I don’t know what you’ve done to me, but I’m out of here.” He strolled to the door.

Danni could not hold back the warning that sprang to her lips. The man need to know that the future wasn’t secure. “Blood will flow from paper and your honor will be tested. Watch your step and trust your heart.”

The door swung open and the man disappeared.

“Oh, but it’s fun to see a man squirm.” She sat on the bed and envisioned the fun she’d have with Omar when he finally found her. That is if he found her.

Steve raced down the stairs and out of the tavern. Never had he encountered such a strange place.

After settling into the seat of his car, he slammed it into gear and pulled out onto the dirt road.

“Boy, will I be glad to see the last of this place,” He muttered and glanced in his rearview mirror.

His reflection showed his shock. Eyes wide, mouth dropped open. He stared at the empty field behind him.

Chills ran down his spine and he punched his foot down on the gas petal.

“Time to find Brookfield and forget I ever made this stop.”

I’d like to thank Anita Philmar for taking time out of her busy schedule to entertain you folks with her version of Steve meets Danni. It has been an absolute pleasure! Check out BANISHED WITCH:

A princess of Ardenia, Danella accepts her role as witch in the human world so she can protect her family and track down the traitor to the crown. But when Omar Mandel, her childhood sweetheart and the reason behind her leaving her homeland enters the tavern where she works, she decides to seek her revenge and live out a few unfulfilled fantasies.

The queen wants her daughter to come home and Omar’s job is to see that it happens. However, Danella isn’t the same sweet girl, he remembers. In her place is a sexy woman, who excites his lust and claims his heart. He must teach her to trust in his love and face the sins of the past so they can have a future together.
