Title: Shine
Author: Joann Buchanan
Release Date: September 2, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance

EXCERPT:
After that, I took the memory card from my camera and put it into the computer to pull up the images. One by one they came up. First were the pictures of the small trees with the beautiful yellow hues of light sparkling behind them. Across the sky, grey clouds formed and rays of light shined through them. I flipped through the photos, taking a quick look at all of them. As I reached the end of the file, I was sure I had imagined everything I had witnessed. Then the last three pictures showed him coming into view. Magical, miraculous, my jaw dropped as I pressed print on the small printer. A lifetime passed while I waited for the printer to finish spitting out the photos. With a sigh, I paced back and forth a little. Waiting wasn’t something I did well.
I looked at the pictures without blinking. I had captured the ray of light with Samuel in it. His body appeared like nothing more than an orb, or could even have been explained away. In the next picture, his body formed, almost ghostly in appearance. Finally, in the last one, Samuel landed on the ground. His wings had disappeared and the man I met was there.
I had seen it happen; it was real. It was proof enough to me that I wasn’t some crazed lunatic. Samuel had come from the sky. Questions still lingered in my mind. What was he doing there? How did I get to my car? There was nothing on the file after the last three images I’d printed. Fear grew inside me the more I thought about what could have happened on the way to my car. I cocouldn'tuite picture it, but I knew Samuel had saved me. I didn't know what from, and I didn't know why, but he had. Why couldn't I remember?

Teaser
(Mason’s point of view)

Suddenly, something caught the corner of my eyes and I turned away from Sky. Tiny bubbles of water hovered in the air in front of us. They looked like bubbles, so I zapped one with a small bolt and it popped.
 I knew it was from Sky by the sly yet innocent smile and her giggles, not to mention a few more bubbles coming out of the water bottle. It was amazing to see this transformation, yet she was handling it better than I would have. Perhaps it was the fact that she was getting used to the paranormal life, and she had support around her.
 I closed the bottle and handed it to her just in case she wanted more. With a shake of my head, I mouthed, “No, no, no.” After planting a kiss on her forehead, I put it back inside the backpack.
To my surprise, I saw more water bubblies, so I poked one with my finger … it wasn’t the reaction that I got last time. My finger went right through it, and it retained its form when I removed my finger. I even used my bolt, but nothing happened.
Turning at the sound of laughter, I noted we were engulfed with water bubbles, multiplying by the second. I glanced at Noah and Tim, the two that I thought were behind this, but when they seemed fascinated by it. Therefore, I knew they had nothing to do with it, especially since their water bottles were closed. The only other person I thought would do this was Sky, but she appeared worried instead of amused.
“Mason. I’m not doing this. I don’t think it’s from one of us,” she said under her breath. Her eyes were wide and frightened, glued to the bubbles dancing in front of her.

(Skylar’s point of view)

When I sensed movement, I peered up. Seeing countless liquid droplets hovering above us, as if they were raindrops frozen in place, was a clear indication that Poseidon’s descendants were somewhere in the room. It was a beautiful sight, yet deadly. I knew at any moment it could change its shape into something sharp and lethal. I became uneasy, especially when they were right above us.
When I followed the line of the vultures’ vision, I saw liquids of various colors—the colors of whatever drinks had spilled on the floor—slithering toward us. Then they lifted, swirling continuously in a circular motion, and finally forming into a huge sphere.
“Why are they still in human form?” Nicked shouted, having both of his hands raised, ready to attack. “They’ve already scared all of the humans away.”
“I have no idea,” Mason replied.
“Where’s Kayla?” I asked frantically. Bewildered by what I was able to do, I had forgotten about my cousin.
“She’s out. She’s underneath the bar,” Nick explained. “I had no choice. It was the safest place.”
I felt horrible. Many times before, Kayla had to be knocked out, but at least she was safe and that was all that mattered.
“What do we do?” Amanda asked. “We’re just standing here in ninja stance, having a staring contest.”
“Maybe they’re not vultures?” Everett added.
“They sure smell like them,” Nick sneered.
“Maybe they’re scared shitless. I would be too if I had those things pointing at me,” Nick commented.
“What do you want?” Mason asked the strangers in an authoritative tone, and asked another when there was no answer. “Who sent you?”

Mason squeezed his eyes shut and took a deep breath, then opened them while exhaling a puff of air with an adorable frown. “Okay, but I’m texting you every hour, so you’d better have the phone right next to you.”
“Deal.” I smiled, placing out my thumb. “Seal the deal, Mace.” I had no idea why I had said that, except for that fact that I had done this with my dad when I was a little girl, so I was a bit shocked that the words came out of my mouth. I hadn’t said that since I was eight years old. Out of habit … maybe?
Mason let out a soft chuckle. “Did you just call me Mace? It sounds hot coming out of your mouth. I’ll seal the deal with my love shock.” Positioning his thumb near mine, small illuminating sparks flew out from it. They looked like small, glowing branches, yet moved like long spider legs. Slowly, he moved it closer. It sizzled and crackled first, then it wrapped around my thumb. It was the coolest sight. Where our thumbs were touching glowed. The longer the light touched me, the warmer it got in that area. Then it continued to weave from my hand down to my arm, making my arm shimmer.
Watching in awe, I gave him the biggest smile I could. Suddenly, my body jerked and I dropped my hand. “Ouch.”
Mason captured it and rubbed the area. “Shit! I’m so sorry. Sometimes I can’t control it around you.”
I formed my lips into a wicked, sexy grin. “Sometimes, I don’t want you to.”

That kiss not only made me forget where I was, it awakened every inch of me. Lost in his arms and those soft, kissable lips taking mine in, I kissed him back. When it intensified, Mason pulled back with ragged breaths and held me tenderly in his arms. “I’m not sure if it’s working for you, but I forgot where we were for a moment,” he said, still catching his breath.
“Believe me, your lips are like magic. I did forget. I’m just glad you didn’t shock me.” I let out a small laugh.
“I’m learning to control it around you, Echo, but I don’t know if I ever will. You excite me way too much for me to handle.”
I blushed from his compliment. “I feel the—” I started to say when my body tensed from the chime of the doorbell.
With one tight but tender squeeze, Mason murmured, “I’m right here. It’ll all be okay. Just say the word and he’s out the door.” Then he released me.
In a fast, fluid motion, Mason was at the door. Oh how I loved to see him move with such speed. Cautiously, he looked into the small peephole. After confirming who it was, he opened it.
