Most of my books have a supernatural aspect, but I have to admit playing with magic is one of my favorite things. With magic, everything becomes possible. It's only when Megan and I started talking about our hop theme that I realized how many of my stories contain this element, like an extra spice that gives a little je ne sais quoi to the story.
In my very first novel, Checkmate, it's a botched magic spell that causes a vampire and a Special Enforcer (vampire hunter) to become Mates. The rest of the Special Enforcers series also contains magic to a lesser degree.
My newest series, the QuickSilver Codex, is centered on a parallel world that uses a magic called the Quickening, and that will be the title of book 2, coming this June, in which the heroine learns to master this strange force.
In Her Last Words, magic sends Master vampire Gabrielle back in time so that she can fix her biggest mistake, save countless lives, and fix her relationship with her favorite Childe, Erik.
In the Lullabies series, magic allows a vampire to become what his very nature forbids: the father to a human child.
In the Blurred Trilogy, the mage Simon is 'only' a secondary character, but he is pivotal in the fight against the demons as well as Blake's healing process.
In The Thirteenth Halloween, magic reunites lovers beyond the grave.
And then there are my 'magic holidays' stories. In I'll Be Home For Christmas, magic bursts out of the heroine to mark her and her lover with tangible symbols of their love. In the freebie The Missing Star, the heroine tries to summon the man she loves and lost back to her. In Christmas Magic, a special spell is the excuse for two friends to grow closer. And in Under His Skin, two lovers exchange bodies for a few hours, and learn more about each other than they had bargained for.
