When Evie falls in love with Calvin Knight, their young, virtuous romance conjures a truly wicked spell.
Evie always thought her eighteenth year would be magical, but so far it's not what she hoped for. Her best friend has gone wild, her love life is void, and she misses her mom more than ever. But life for Evie is about to change. Calvin Knight, the object of her fascination, is about to fall madly in love with her. Just one problem: Their love conjures a murderous woman from beyond the grave who wants Evie dead. The same demon who has haunted the Knight men for over four generations. Soon Calvin is forced to make a choice: Set Evie free and hope to evade the wrath of The Raven- haired Ghost, or use his newly gifted strengths to fight against her. If he chooses to fight and wins, Calvin will free the Knight men of this demonic witch. If he loses, Evie will become her next victim.

Writing Romance That’s Clean Without Losing the Steam!
I’m a reader of good, clean romance, a lover of family time and Diet Coke, and the ultimate hater of laundry.
I’m not patient enough to enjoy a yoga class, or tall enough to be great at basketball, but I do love to run – anywhere but on a treadmill. I love the sound of a rainstorm when I have no place to go, the feel of Soft Lips chap Stick on my lips, and the first peek of blue water as we round the mountains toward our favorite getaway in Bear Lake.

Evie has noticed Calvin Knight before. She knows, from having an art class with him at the university, that he is handsome, talented, and most likely not at all interested in her, since they’ve never exchanged so much as a greeting. Here, as she rushes to fill up her tank and get to school on time, Evie has her first conversation with Calvin Knight. Too bad she had to embarrass herself first.
Due to the length of the excerpt, I thought it best to divide it into two separate posts. We’ll call this Part One of The Gas Station Scene (be sure to check out Part Two on blog listed below):
As Evie spotted the black Jeep Wrangler parked snuggly up to one of the pumps, tension tightened her limbs. Calvin Knight owns a Jeep like that.
She eased forward at a slow crawl and settled on the pump furthest from the Jeep. With a quick glance, she surveyed the tall, lean stranger in question. His olive skin basked in warm contrast to the white polo shirt hugging his masculine chest. A thick leather belt allowed his khakis to hang perfectly low on his hips.
Yep, that’s him. Her heart sped up to a wild flutter. She yanked down the rearview and gave her cheeks a pinch, forcing a bit of color into her tan-deprived face. After stepping out of the car, she turned her attention to the back fender, scanning the silver body once. Twice.
“Wait, where’s the ...” She took a few steps as realization sunk in. The gas cap–it wasn’t there. “Crap.” In her attempt to steer clear of The Mute, she’d pulled the wrong side of her car up to the pump.
While releasing an annoyed puff of air, she shot a quick glance in Calvin Knight’s direction. Though she couldn’t be sure, it seemed as if he was looking her way.
Great. She couldn’t get back in the car and move it now. She’d just have to make it work. The voice in her head warned it wouldn’t reach, but Evie ignored it and grabbed the nozzle, flicking her blonde hair behind one shoulder with the whip of her head.
The outlook was promising. She’d made it to the back of her car without the slightest resistance when she felt the dreaded tug. “No way,” she said under her breath. She tugged back, trying to gain slack, hoping it was simply snagged on the bumper.
The older man at the front pump snapped his frail-looking fingers. “Darn that. You were so close.”
“Yep.” Evie replaced the nozzle and slunk back into the car, wondering if her morning could get any worse. With a bit of angst behind the action, she restarted the engine and circled into the adjacent slot. She turned the key, killing the hum of the engine, and replaced the sound with her horrified gasp, realizing she’d done it again. Wrong side.
“You are kidding me,” she mouthed more than spoke. A bit of mental cursing ensued while she snuck another peek in Calvin’s direction. He stood leaning against his Jeep. The nozzle rested in the tank. His gaze rested on her. An odd trace of heat scurried over her body as she tried to decipher the expression on his handsome face. The only word that came to mind was amusement. He looked like he was enjoying her little mishap.
Of course he was. Calvin Knight probably lived for stuff like this. Women doing stupid things in front of him so he could feel even more superior.
