Here is a sneak peek from the story. This is from Kia’s POV:
I walked out of the hotel and headed to the first place I saw, which was Hawthorne Diner. I walked in, instantly loving the smell of the burgers and fries that were being served. Although it was still breakfast, I was already craving the meal that many customers were getting.
I sat down at the counter and tried to get the waitress’ attention, but she walked right past me to go to another customer. That’s cool, because I didn’t know what I wanted anyway.
I looked around when I noticed someone coming up to the counter. He was absolutely gorgeous. From the short blonde hair, green eyes, and muscular physique, he was definitely different than what I was usually attracted to, but I couldn’t deny that he was sexy as hell.
“Is this seat taken?” he asked me.
As soon as he spoke, my pussy began to throb. I clutched my thighs together, wondering what the hell was wrong with me.
Get it together, Kia!
“No… no… it’s not taken.”
“Thanks,” he said and sat down. He flashed a sexy smile, which had me a bit wet. Yeah, something was definitely wrong with me.
“Hey, Cane. What can I get you?” The waitress who I was trying to flag down earlier appeared. I glanced at her, wondering how she was acknowledging him but not me.
“Hey, Stella. I don’t think you got this lovely lady’s order yet, have you?” he asked. He glanced at me again, which made me a bit shy.
“Oh, I guess not. I must didn’t see you sitting there,” she said in a cold tone. I rolled my eyes, knowing where this was heading.
“You saw me perfectly well, Stella,” I said while looking at her name tag, even though the guy mentioned her name.
“Well, what do you want?” she asked in a hostile tone.
“Really, Stella. Do you have to be rude to your new customer?”
“How do you know I’m new?” I asked.
“Believe me, Tyler is sort of a small city and Hawthorne is the place to be. All the locals come here and I pretty much know everyone,” the guy said.
“He’s right,” Stella replied. I didn’t even acknowledge her since she didn’t with me.
“Well, Stella, let me get the usual and whatever the pretty lady wants, it’s on me,” he said and flashed that smile again, making my pussy throb a second longer.
“Uh, you don’t have to buy my meal. I got it.”
“I assume you do, but I insist.”
Stella rolled her eyes before staring at me. “Well, he’s paying so what’s your order?”
“Aren’t you a ray of sunshine?” I said to Stella. She groaned and I laughed. I would keep messing with her, but she’d probably spit in my food, so I stopped. “I’ll have the burger and fries, please. But, I’m paying for it.”
The guy shook his head and already pulled out his money. Stella called out my order as well as his, which was the “Cane Special,” before walking off.
I looked at the guy named Cane with a curious expression. “Is she always like that?”
He laughed. “Ever since I was a kid. She’s not too keen on visitors, so excuse her behavior.”
“I guess,” I mumbled. “So, you got a meal named after you?”
“Not really. It’s just eggs, bacon, and pancakes. I just order it a lot, so they automatically know it’s for me.”
I nodded. “You probably need to go to another place to eat.”
“I love it here. But, anyway, Stella doesn’t represent everyone who lives here. For me, I love to encounter visitors. Where are you from?”
I shifted in my seat, wondering if I should even talk to him. It’s not like I’d see him again.
“Cool. You must be here for business.”
“Because like I said earlier, Tyler is not a big city.”
“Let’s just say I’m here for business and a bit of pleasure.”
He gave me the once over, which made me bite my lip. I was doing too much right now.
“I don’t think I introduced myself. Cane Brooks.” he said and extended his hand out to me.
“Kia Collins,” I said and accepted his handshake.
“I have to admit, you are a beautiful woman. Extremely beautiful. Since you’re new to the city, maybe I can show you around.”
“I prefer not,” I said.
“Why not? I’m sure you don’t know anyone here.”
“I rather keep it that way for now. But, thank you.”
Cane nodded. “Okay, cool.” He got up from his seat and stared at me once more. “I hope you enjoy your meal and maybe we’ll cross paths again.”
“I don’t think we will,” I said.
He leaned closer to me. I took in the intoxicating scent of his cologne. He put his hand behind my chair while lowering his lips to my ear.
“Trust me, we will see each other again. I’m counting on it.”
Just hearing how sexy he sounded made me immediately have thoughts I shouldn’t be having. This was a complete stranger and I was literally wet from his damn voice.
You’re a mess, girl.
Don’t I know it.
“Nice to meet you, Kia,” Cane said. He gave me another delectable smile before going to the door, forgetting all about the food he just ordered.
I watched him leave, staring at the fine specimen walking out the door. I slowly turned around to see Stella sitting my meal in front of me. She shook her head, making my attitude change from lustful to annoyed.
“Here’s your burger and fries. I see Cane left without his food again.”
“I guess he does that a lot, huh?”
“He does, but let me give you a word of advice about him.”
“Do I want it?” I asked.
“I think you should take it. I don’t know how long you’re going to stay here, but don’t get involved with him while you’re here. He’s nothing but trouble.”
I smirked. “Trust me, I have my own issues to worry about. I don’t need the extra drama. But, I’m still paying for my order.”
Stella shook her head. “Cane paid for it, so let him. Just enjoy your burger and fries.”
I smiled. “Fine. Thanks.”
Stella nodded and went to the back to grab another order. I stared at my food, completely taken aback by what Stella just said. But she didn’t have anything to worry about. I was trying to rediscover myself and adding another man to the mix wouldn’t help my dilemma. Right now, I just wanted to focus on getting myself back together.

ABOUT THE BOOK
She cannot see me, but she can hear me; and that is all I’ll need to make her fall in love… with me.
Everything I’ve ever needed, is right here in my Paradise, including the whining brats I led away from their parents eons ago with my magical flute; but when that sorceress, Celeste Dubois, shows up and suggests that things need to change – that I need to change, I know she has lost her mind. That is, until she presents me with a brown beauty named Melodie, who awakens something deep inside me with her own music. I thought I had everything, but suddenly, I’m considering that maybe I don’t. I’m full of magic and music, but will those be enough to win Melodie’s heart? Especially when she learns that I’m the villain she despises from the folktales of old?
I can’t see him, but his music is like magic, and it restores my belief in true love.
Patrick appeared out of nowhere – not that I can actually see him, but the aura and the vibe he carries is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Sometimes, I think I can actually see his radiance, and when he plays that flute of his, the sound is like healing magic. But my son, Rafael, has reservations. He says he recognizes Patrick from somewhere, though he’s not totally sure. Rafael is my eyes. I want to follow his lead, the way I always do, but Patrick is like magic, and his music is beckoning me closer…
