Solstice Sizzle (Pagan Pleasures Bk 2)

Johan Rogers is a sharpshooting family lawyer who is close to burn out. This is affecting his ability with the Magiks and his once reliable skill as a medium. On a whim, he’s come south to Edi’s shop, Crystal Sands, for a break over the summer solstice. He’s looking for fun, nothing serious, and definitely no commitment. 

That’s how things start with the stunning Nova. But then a side of him he’s repressed to be a lawyer begins to emerge. Can he get a handle on his emotions, or will Nova help him to realize his full potential with the Magiks?

Nova McGinnis is struggling to find her unique skill with the Magiks. She’s been repressed too long, and despite Edi’s help, her ability is erratic at best. It’s been nearly a month of trying and she’s made minimal progress. Frustrated, she sees Johan as the perfect distraction. 

It was meant to be just a summer love affair, but things are developing into something more lasting. Will a hot love affair prevent Nova from discovering her Magik ability, or help her?

 Nova has just met Johan, who is a medium, and knows his Magik skill. She’s frustrated she doesn’t know what her skill is, and is thinking that he might well be the distraction she’s in need of right now. Is she game to trust herself to see where things might lead to with Johan?

“I need to sort out my accommodation for the next week or so, but I’m sure it will have a place to burn this beauty,” said Johan.
He really had a casual air around him, a sort of don’t-bother-me, don’t try and get me to help you feel. To Nova, it turned her on, which surprised her. Just go with it. The thought had more energy than simply from herself. She tried to ground herself with all the energy which was buzzing around in her aura, imagining it flowing down her legs and out her feet, so she could remain centered.
“Johan, there’s an Airbnb, The Pearl, it’s just up the road… ocean views, and it’s available. I’m sure Nova will help you settle in,” said Edi, holding up her phone with the accommodation showing on the screen.
Old emotion threatened to bubble to the surface at the mention of The Pearl. It had been years since she’d been inside, but the memories were strong. It was the last place she wanted to be. She didn’t need any reminders. Edi wouldn’t have known since she was new to around here. Though even now, it had been so long, even the locals could be forgiven for forgetting.
There was also the distinct feeling that Edi might be trying to set her up with this guy. And that was much more pleasant to think about than old memories. Nova narrowed her eyes at Edi, who despite her only knowing for a month was fast becoming more than a mentor. There was a flash of cheek in Edi’s eyes. She is! She could feel Edi, encouraging her. I don’t need encouragement.
Yes, you do, seemed to be the response from Edi.
Nova shifted uneasily on her feet. One thing was sure, she needed to do something about this excess energy, and a swim would be the perfect solution. That and then meditation with her own black candle burning, with perhaps some extra incense like sage just to be sure.
“Will you show me this place?”
It took a moment for Nova to realize Johan was talking to her. She gripped the candle. A feeling of security flowed into her.
“Sure.” She took a deep breath. Nova wasn’t entirely sure what she’d gotten herself into, but in that moment, she’d decided she was going to see where all this lustful energy between them would lead.
His eyes softened as he smiled. “Thanks.”
A warm energy flowed over Nova, causing her head to spin slightly. She enjoyed the sensation and she wanted more. She’d been repressed for so long, that even now her mom had passed, it was still hard for her to follow her heart and the natural desires that burned within her.
“Here, book into this place, it will be perfect for your R&R.” Edi handed her phone to Johan. “And buy the candle.”
“Good to see you haven’t lost your bossiness, Edi.” Johan grinned as he took the phone, and started booking the accommodation. “Looks perfect actually.”
“Just trying to help.”
“Anything else I should be doing?”
“Have a good time.”
“I’ll do that.”
“Now, Nova, are you able to show him where to go? Maybe you two can have dinner, help Johan start to relax?”
“You really are bossy.” Nova hadn’t seen this side of Edi. She didn’t care, the chance of spending more time with Johan was sending her senses into overload, and the desire within to burning hot.
“It’s settled then.”
Nova wasn’t exactly sure what had been settled, but she felt a shift in the energy. A few extra sparks bolted between her and Johan. She watched him finish the transaction on Edi’s phone. How can he stay so calm and collected? When all she wanted to do was to let her hands explore his body, find the places which gave him pleasure, and have some skin on skin time with him. Maybe run her tongue down his chest.
“Done.” He handed the phone back to Edi.
“Pay for the candle when you come in next. Now, off you two go. And make sure you both have a good time together.” She motioned for them to leave with her hands.
“I’m starting to think you don’t want me here anymore.”
“Not until our next session. Which by the way, forget about tomorrow, you need a break as well.”
Nova wanted to leave with him, not to go to that place, but she would just to see what might unfold between them. The problem was, suddenly her legs felt more like jelly, and she wasn’t sure about moving. She also wasn’t used to having such open support about going off with a strange man. Though oddly, she realized he didn’t feel like a stranger. There was a connection between them. More than a simple attraction perhaps. She’d never experienced anything like this before. It was both exciting and a little unsettling at the same time.
“Coming?” There was some hesitation in his voice. “You don’t have to—”
“She does,” interrupted Edi. “I mean, no she doesn’t.”
Nova saw the amusing side of this. If it weren’t for the feeling of the connection with Johan, she would clearly decline the suggestion. “Well, as long as you treat me well.”
“I’ll make it worth your while.” His response caused her breath to catch in her throat.
“Just as I like it.”
He walked over to the shop door, opened it, the bell chiming gently, causing Nova’s skin to prickle pleasantly. He gestured for her to walk through.
“Oh, polite, too.” She walked through. Nova could feel the edges of her aura fraying under the mixture of emotions that were whirling within her. She was going to have to do something about that. And soon.
With a glance at Johan, she knew exactly the course of action to take.
