From the moment Gage first came on the page back in 2007 when I wrote Sensual Magic, I always saw him as a blonder Ryan Reynolds.
Gage and Molly have a fire and ice thing going on. They bicker a lot. Come from two very different worlds, but underneath it all, there’s an intense attraction and a deep respect too.

He stepped back and she watched, unable to move as he popped open his jeans and slid them down revealing a trim waist and powerful thighs. Oh and that too. Shew! Once he shoved his boxers down his cock sprang free, clearly as invested in the encounter as he claimed he was.
She got rid of her yoga pants and underwear and circled him. The tattoos on his belly and chest were nothing compared to his back, which was covered by a very large pentacle with detailed Celtic work. In the center was the tree of life.
“Astounding work.” She drew a fingertip along the edge.
“Runes and protective sigils are woven through it.” Strain left his voice a little hoarse and she smiled, loving the way she affected him.
“I really love it.”
He turned and slowly backed her to the bed. But he didn’t immediately follow her down. Instead he simply took her in from head to toe. “You’re unbelievable. So beautiful and feminine. Your body is . . .” He shook his head and blew out a breath. “Amazing. Gorgeous. Your tits make my mouth water and your hips, good lord, you’ve been hiding this bounty under those clothes this whole time.”
She smiled up at him, flattered and flustered.
“Like a delicious secret only I know.”
Then he moved to the bed, at her side. “I’m torn between wanting you all right this very instant and taking it slow and savoring every last inch.”
“You can do both. I’m not going anywhere.”
“Thank God for that.”
And then he rolled her on top of him and she set to kissing along his jaw and then down his neck. He kept his grip on her ass though, which was pretty hot so she wasn’t about to complain.
“You throw off magick like pixie dust when you’re turned on,” he murmured as one hand broke free and his fingers tiptoed up her spine and then across her shoulder. She’d never considered such a thing sexy, but however he was doing it sent warm pulses of sensation through her system, dizzying her.
He flipped her onto her back and she looked up into his handsome face and fell into his gaze. It seemed that she saw right through her.
“You absolutely do. It’s fucking delicious. Irresistible. Luscious.” To underline his point he licked up her neck and then to her lips for a brief time. “Like caramel. I want to eat you up.”
“If you keep saying stuff like that, I’m going to pass out and then I’ll miss this.”
