Love and Mercy are powerful forms of magic.

Gennie Pendragon understands magic isn't always good for the body or the soul. Born from the descendants of the mystical King Arthur and Merlin, she also knows the legends are real.

Excalibur, the King Maker, has remained hidden away for the past century awaiting his next master's hand to claim him. Once awakened, he has four days to test this unknown Pendragon. Only the Good and Just can wield his immense power, but Gennie is something he never counted on.

Nothing can change his destiny – not even their passionate love.

Excerpt from

The Sword and the Sorceress

by

Buffi BeCraft-Wodoall

He moved faster than a thought. Huge masculine arms wrapped around her,
pulling her close. His arms were like bands of steel, keeping her from
escape, gentle enough not to crush the breath from her.

Gennie squeaked. She worked her hands up to push
against the hard swells of his chest. "How dare you! You
big…."

Meeting his eyes, her breath caught.

Need drowned in a fathomless ocean of loneliness.
Every line of his body pressed against hers as if absorbing her very
essence.

Unable to cope, she turned away. What had possessed
her to tell him her real name? She may not practice the arts, but darn
it, she knew that names held a certain power.

"My Lady Genevieve." The words feathered in
her ear, soft and full of emotion. Gentle fingers explored her back,
sending shivers of sensation everywhere. "Do not dismiss me."

Relaxing into the embrace, she returned her gaze to
his amazing expressive blue eyes. Magic swirled possessively inside
her, reading him as other, and still human. Very much something that
should be kept as close to her side as possible. "Who, what, are
you?"

A dimple peeked out of one male chiseled cheek.
"I have told you My Lady. I am…."

Gennie snorted another laugh. "Yeah, yeah.
Excalibur. Tell me Cal, how did you get yourself out of Merle's
basement wall?" Her fingers curled around the swell of an arm
muscle that held her locked into place. Under his intense gaze, fiery
licks of desire shivered her belly.

"I never understood…." Cal ignored her
question. His soft words brushed over her cheek, as if savoring wash of
magic and sexual energy that charged her skin. "Why a king, a man
of great power and influence…."

Gennie melted into the embrace. Her eyes slid shut
as his breath stirred over the sensitive whorls of her ear. Another
shiver worked down her back, beading her nipples into hard nubs.

"Why a men cast away everything, for the taste of
a woman." Cal's tongue danced behind her ear before he captured
the lobe, sucking on it gently. The hard line of his body grew harder,
and more rigid, against her belly. His lips drifted over her cheek,
stealing the remainder of her senses. "For the possession of
her."

The moment their lips touched, the world, the
universe exploded.

Gennie wrapped her arms around his neck, her only
anchor, sinking her hands into the silvery sheet of his hair. Opening
her mouth, she welcomed the questing intrusion of his tongue. The
gentle slide and thrust deepened, mimicking sex. Making her want to
feel the thrust of him deep inside. She arched against his body, the
tiny sound of her growing passion swallowed by another searching kiss.

Excalibur, Cal, pulled away first, nearly unbalancing
her.

"Whaa?" A magic sword. She had King Arthur's
magic, sentient sword. Here. In the spare bedroom of Camelot Home,
kissing the holy bejeepers out of her.

The Holiday Spirit

by

Dani Harper

Counseling the dead is easy. The undead is another story.

When is a ghost not a ghost? Kerri Tollbrook counsels the newly
departed, but Galen McAllister refuses to be counseled. A malicious
spell has separated him from his still-living body.

Can they create enough magic in the nine days before Christmas to break
the spell, or will Galen remain a ghost forever?

The Tides of Yule

by

T.J. Killian

One magical night could change his life – it might end hers.

Elizabeth Lapp left the Amish years ago, but she still practices the
simple life. Even as a secret from her past haunts her, she's not
prepared for what is about to happen to her.

Noel St. Cloud is a mystic Stygian Knight on his way to celebrate Yule
in the peace of Pennsylvania's Dutch country. As he drives through a
blizzard to find himself face to face with a Cascade of Frost Demons. In
the middle of the swarming crystalline entities is his next mate.

From that moment they are set on a course with destiny while riding the
magical Tides of Yule.

Elfing Around

by

J. Morgan

Santa's Naughty List is about to grow by one elf.

Essie is an elf gone Wild! But Public Enemy #1 she's not. Thrown
behind bars two days before Christmas, Essie can't believe the local
Barney Fife thinks she's a… it's too horrible to say
outloud. Hoor, okay there I've said it. Hunkalicious Sheriff Dalton
comes to her rescue—in more ways than one. False arrest turns into
the opportunity for Essie to finally be naughty for once in her life.

Forget the mistletoe! Come fall in love under the flickering lights of a
Christmas tree and be naughty about it. Let's just hope Santa
isn't watching. If you didn't know—he frowns on naughty.

That won't stop Essie from discovering the best presents are always
the naughtiest.

All I Want is You

by

Catherine Stang

Their love is destined by the Spirits.

Enigmatic, jaded, Ross Stanton, Earl of Brynmore, would love it if the
ghosts haunting his house would be quiet for a change. He'd like it
even better if the young lady of the ton, who has chased him for years,
would stop sending him messages. After all, he's only trying to
protect her from his dark and dangerous secret.

Emma understands the spirit world, she hasn't quite figured out Ross
though. Her love interest came back from the war – different. Never
mind that, she's determined to have him as her husband and will do
anything to get him.

Three wayward ghosts, a duel at dawn, and a mystical twist is all that
stands in her way.
