I crave her like no other…but touching her could destroy us both.

Ronan
For thousands of years, the Wolvsey wizards have been cursed never to know their fated mate.

Then I see her. A beauty with a bruised heart. A human who’s not supposed to know about our world. She’s off-limits, yet I'm obsessed. I shouldn’t want to share everything with her. Given my manwhore reputation, she’ll never trust me.

And if I give in, she’ll die.
***
Kari
For two years, I’ve ached for the enigmatic stranger who watches me possessively every night, then leaves with another woman. He’s not mine, and after my ex, I swore I’d never fall again.

And if I give in, he’ll break my heart.

There’s no place for us—in his world or mine. Yet our spark burns too hot to resist. And when a terrifying dark wizard threatens everything, we must band together…or we won’t survive.

*** Enjoy a little taste of Capture Me in Moonlight! ***

“Kari is different.” Special. “I’ve nearly gone mad trying to discern why,” I tell my twin.

Raiden snorts. “She’s the only woman who’s ever told you ‘no’. There are plenty who won’t. Pick one and move on.”

As if all women are interchangeable. But for Raiden—and the rest of the Wolvsey clan—they are.

Why am I different?

“Chat up the women by the window. I’m popping over to the bar and say hello.”

My brother rolls his eyes. “You’re wasting your time. Kari looks…busy.”

I turn back to find her pressing her soft pink lips against a big wizard’s stubbled cheek. The sight rips through my gut. She looks so delicate and fair against his strong, sun-bronzed face.

Tynan squeezes her hand. I clench my jaw so hard, I nearly grind my teeth into powder.

Stalking across the pub, I yank out the stool beside the big wizard. It screeches across the old stone floor. Everyone nearby turns to stare—except Kari.

To my left, the flames from the brick hearth ward off the coming winter’s chill. Heavy alternative rock plays in the background as a group of wizards laugh at their attempts to play billiards without magic. Human females at the end of the bar toast with stout red wine. But when I set eyes on Kari everyone else falls away. She commands my attention. She hypnotizes me with her smile that shines as brightly as her golden hair and her otherworldly blue eyes that seem to take up half of her sweet face. A glance has me panting. My c0ck turns hard as steel.

There is something about her…a freshness, a uniqueness I can’t pinpoint. If I could, maybe I could rid myself of this odd obsession. In the two years since I first set eyes on Kari Keswick, it’s only grown.

“Kari?”

Slowly, the other wizard releases her with a nod, as if he’s grudgingly giving her permission to greet me. Sighing, she tears her attention from Tynan. Is she fvcking the wanker? Is she in love with him? The questions scream through my brain like a battle cry.

“Ronan.” She ambles closer. “A scotch?”

“Double, no rocks.” I glance down at Tynan. “New…friend?”

“I see your brother has already made yours for the night.” She looks just over my shoulder at my twin with a sarcastic twist of her lush mouth. “I hope you’re in the mood for a brunette. It appears she’s yours by default. Raiden always takes the redheads.” Then she looks at her watch and whistles. “Wow. Three minutes. That’s a record, even for him.”

I grimace. I don’t like coming here to find women, but Raiden insists nowhere else is more expedient or target-rich.

“I don’t care who he’s found. He can have them both. I came for you,” I confess.

“We’ve been over this.” Kari reaches behind her for a glass on the shelf. “No.”

“Why?” Given her closeness to Tynan, it’s not because I’m a wizard.

“Don’t ask me again. Please.” She slams the glass on the well-worn bar between us.

I grab her hands. They’re soft, despite being slightly work-roughened. At a mere touch, desire burns, gnawing at my composure. I ache to see her long fingers wrapped around my c0ck or feel her practical nails digging into my back as I fvck her hard. “You’re a fever to me. I need to touch you.”

“That line work for you often?”

Kari thinks my choked admission is a ploy? I scowl. “It’s the bloody truth.”

She shakes her head, curls brushing the pert breasts I’ve fantasized about touching, and extracts her hands to fill my glass of scotch. She shoves it my way. “Like any fever, you’ll recover. That’ll be twelve pounds.”

Swallowing a curse, I slide the human money across the bar. “I just want to talk to you.”

“You want to shag me. And then forget me as you have every woman you’ve met here for the past two years. You have too many notches on your bedpost, and the line to be next is too long. No, thank you.”

With that, she turns away and heads to the other end of the bar.

Bugger!

But now that it seems wizards aren’t off Kari’s to-do list, I’m determined that I’ll soon make her mine…
