Synopsis

Grace is sick and tired of dealing with Liam and Isa’s business. Besides she’s got bigger problems.

She and Jude have finally found peace, but she’s keeping a big secret and he’s being sent out on a mission with no telling when he’ll back.

When Grace finds out that Jude and a few of the other guardians are under the influence of an evil wizard, she has to decide if she’s going to tell him about her own wizardness.In the end, she doesn’t.

And the consequences are deadly...

First Chapter

Grace blinked her eyes open. At first, she was disoriented as she was clearly not in her own bed. An arm was wrapped around her waist, and the man behind the arm pulled her tightly into his chest, kissing the back of her neck.

She relaxed. She’d planned on spending the night at Liam’s cell, but Isa had shown up close to midnight and claimed she wanted to watch over him instead. Grace wasn’t sure that was the best thing since, the last time she’d left them alone, Isa killed him, but she wasn’t about to argue.

So, she’d spent the night with Jude, though they hadn’t done much more than kiss.

“I think this is my favorite way to wake up,” Jude said. “I’ll miss you when I’m gone.”

Grace sighed. She did love the way he felt pressed up against her.

“Me too.”

“You know, there is no reason for you to keep your old room. You can move your stuff in here. I have plenty of room.”

Grace thought of her magic items. She couldn’t move everything up here without him becoming suspicious. Because then, he’d figure out what she was, and it would be his duty to tell Isa. After all, he had promised Grace he’d put Isa first. Which, at the time, Grace had thought was the best thing to do, but now she wasn’t so sure.

Besides that, he was leaving for this mysterious mission soon, and if he was gone, she’d rather be in her room where she was comfortable.

No, she couldn’t move up here yet.

She rolled over so she could see his face.

“When do you leave?” She didn’t want to think about this mission he was going on. It might not be super dangerous, but he had no idea how long it’d take and when he’d return home.

He frowned. “You’re changing the subject.”

“No. This is relevant, I promise.”

He traced a finger along her bare shoulder. “Tomorrow.”

Anxiety jumped in her stomach. That was earlier than she’d thought. “See, you’re leaving, and you don’t know when you’ll be back. I would feel weird staying in here by myself.”

Jude creased his eyebrows. “I’ve been to your room. It’s the size of my closet.”

“It’s cozy. I feel safe there.”

He tugged her even closer. “Don’t you feel safe here?”

She kissed him quickly on the lips. “Of course I do, but you won’t be here, will you?”

He glowered at her. “I know, but I figured then you could make yourself comfortable without having to worry about me. Grace, you’re my whole world. I want you here by my side. Every day until we die. And then, even after that, I want you with me.”

Grace’s insides went to mush. Even in her wildest dreams, she’d never imagined him loving her like this.

Their relationship was all still surreal to her.

And she was keeping a big secret from him. If she moved into his room, she’d have to tell him.

“I like having my own space. At least, for now. This is all so new.”

He gave her a quick kiss on the lips. “Tell you what. I’ll talk to Benjamin and Frederick, and they’ll help you move your stuff while I’m gone.”

“Dragon’s teeth, Jude. I want to keep my own room. I’ll spend the nights with you, but I don’t want to move my stuff.”

He frowned. “And where will you bathe? With me or in that tiny room of yours?” She blushed at the thought of bathing with him, and his mouth split into a grin. He knew he was making her uncomfortable. He dropped his lips to her neck and feathered them up along her jaw. She sighed in contentment. If truth be told, she’d never leave this room. “And how am I supposed to dress you if your clothes are in another room?” he said softly.

She placed a hand on his chest. “I’ll think about it.”

He kissed the tip of her nose. “That’ll have to be good enough for me.”

She nuzzled up against him. “Tell me more about this trip you’re going on.”

He played with her hair. “We’ve been over this. I can’t tell you a lot. I’ve told you too much already.”

“Is the wizard who spelled you the one that wants to kill Isa?”

Jude stopped playing with her hair. “I shouldn’t have told you about the wizard.”

Now that Liam was revived and Grace didn’t need to worry about him being dead-dead, her mind returned to the wizard who was controlling the guardians and wanted Isa dead. “You’re right, but you did, and I can’t stop thinking about it. We’re supposed to be protecting her, and I can’t help but wonder if there is a way out of this.”

Jude sighed. “I need you to trust me. I’m doing everything I can to fight it from within.”

“Can I help?” She could help more than he knew, but she’d already decided that the risks were too great to tell him the truth.

“Not now. Hopefully, by the time I’m through with this mission, Isa’s life will no longer be in danger.”

Grace sat up quickly. If his mission was to make sure that Isa’s life was no longer in danger, then that meant he was about to do something very stupid. “Don’t tell me you’re about to go after a wizard all by yourself. You’ll die.”

“There’s a plan in place that involves more than just me. I’ll be fine. I cannot say any more.”

She glanced at the clock behind him. She wanted to continue this argument, but she had other things to do. “I have to be going. Isa will be up and at ‘em, and I have to make sure she didn’t murder Liam again.”

Jude settled in again. “Hurry back. I’ll miss you.”

“This conversation isn’t over. Jude, I won’t let you go on a suicide mission.”

He squeezed her hand. “I’ll be fine. I promise.”

Only, he wouldn’t be. If he was about to take on the wizard, he wouldn’t make it. The wizard could kill him with a flick. Grace could do that if she wanted, and this wizard was likely more powerful than her.

Grace had to go make sure that Liam was still alive, and then she would return and tell Jude everything.
