I’m a paranormal romance junkie and when I read the synopsis for Soul Magic I was intrigued… werewolves, magic, triad bonds and lots of yummy guys 😉 It is a Poppy Dennison story after all! Check it out *points down* It’s on my stack!

Cormac buried his face in his hands again. “I can’t stop. I’m so hungry. I need blood. I don’t want Simon to see me this way. I don’t want to look at him and see my next meal.”
“I know. But listen, you can’t do this to Simon. He’s a wreck. We can help you figure this out, but not if you shut yourself away from the pack, from Simon. If you’re worried you’ll hurt him, well, we need to figure out a way around that.”
“Such as? You seem to have all the answers.” Cormac’s snide tone nearly set off Liam’s tightly controlled anger.
Liam leaned forward and braced his elbows on his knees. “You feed from me. Get all full up, and we go over there and see how you react. If you’re craving his blood, then I get you right back out of there.”
“What if you can’t stop me?”
“You think you can get through me, Gray, and the rest of the pack? You think Simon can’t stop you? Between all of us, I’m not all that worried about it. We’ll make sure the kids aren’t around, just in case. I say we head over there, show him you’re okay, and see how you do. It’s the only way you’re going to have any peace of mind.”
“You make it sound simple. I don’t want to put Simon in danger. Especially not from me.”
Liam stood up and walked over to Cormac. He sat down next to him. “You’re putting him in danger by not being there. That thing that attacked us in the woods? You know what it is. You have information that can help us. Maybe in one of these books. And that man? He’s going to come back, Cormac. Who will protect Simon from that?”
Cormac’s gaze focused on Liam’s neck. He reached out and placed his hands on Liam’s shoulders. “Are you sure?”
“If this will get you back where you need to be….” Liam tilted his head. “Wait.” Cormac immediately stopped and lifted his eyes to Liam’s. “Is there somewhere… else? I don’t want Simon to see this right away. And I don’t want you using your mojo to heal me like you did the drunk guy.”
Cormac breathed deeply for a long moment. His gaze drifted down Liam’s body. “Other locations are more… intimate.”
