Suite Dreams, Book 3

When Luca’s job brings him to a small town for business, he quickly discovers the magic of falling in love with a feisty local.

Luca Revello

As someone who grew up in the city, I experience some culture shock when I travel to the picturesque, small town of Wintervale to help an older couple launch their new ski resort. While almost everyone warmly welcomes me, I seem to rub the owners’ son the wrong way. While Albie seems determined to chase me away, his feisty nature makes him irresistible to me, despite our fifteen year age difference.

It may not be love at first sight, but by the fourth time we meet, I feel like I’m starring in my very own romantic comedy with Albie. Can the magic of a small town bring us a happily ever after worthy of the best schmoopy movies?

Albie Farnese

I want to hate Luca with everything I have. An outsider like him should have no business telling my family how to run our business. But instead of the stuffy, obnoxious know-it-all I expect to show up, Luca has the audacity to be charming, handsome, hilarious, and ridiculously perfect, making it impossible to hate him. Ugh, he’s such a jerk.

If I can’t hate him, I guess that means I have to love him for being the living embodiment of my dream boyfriend. The man even bakes like a master pastry chef! Who could resist a baking god? Certainly not me. Honestly, his only flaw is not being a permanent resident of Wintervale. But I can be very persuasive when it comes to getting what I want, so why should I let that pesky little detail stop us from being together?

Love at Fourth Sight is the third book in the Suite Dreams series and part of the Sunnyside universe. This novel features a small-town, age gap, instalove, opposites attract romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and no angst stories that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll enjoy this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone or as part of the series in order.

Excerpt:

Chapter 1: Albie Farnese As he got closer, I noticed the man was gorgeous. Tall, with a lean swimmer’s build and broad shoulders, his chiseled features were enough to cause anyone to swoon. His dark hair was cut short, and he had just the right amount of scruff to give me inappropriate thoughts about a guest. After all, I had a strict rule about never getting involved with someone staying with us at our hotel. I couldn’t help but be a little awed that somebody so attractive had such an easygoing, friendly smile as he approached me. When he stopped in front of me, I thought my heart would fly out of my chest and into his arms. “Clarence tells me you’re Albie,” he said in a baritone voice that sent shivers through me. “Uh-huh” was the only thing I could get out in my stupefied state as I stared up at him in awe. Was some fairy-tale kingdom missing its Prince Charming? Because there was no way the man could be real. His full lips turned up in amusement as he grew playful. “He also mentioned you would take good care of me.” The innuendo in his voice cranked the blast furnace inside of me to a roaring blaze. I couldn’t stop myself from saying the first thought that popped into my mind. “Oh, I’d be happy to take very good care of you.” His pleased smile was more dazzling than the sun coming out after a long, gray winter. “Then I think we’ll get along nicely.” “I hope so.” He turned his attention to the building, looking up at it with an impressed expression. Our hotel was stunning, with a stone-and-wood exterior and sloping roofs that gave it a high-end lodge feeling, while the interior was all modern luxury. “This place is more beautiful than in the photos online.” “It really is. Pictures don’t do it justice.” I puffed up with pride before I remembered my hotel manners. Getting off the bench, I gestured for him to follow me. “Let’s get you inside and checked in. Where are you coming from?” “Palomina, California,” he replied as he fell into step beside me. “Something tells me I’ll be a lot happier here, though.” “We’ll guarantee it.” I led him over to the front desk, which was made from beautifully stacked stones and black slate. “This is my sister, Adeline. She’ll check you in.” She was shameless as she looked him over with a pleased smile. “I’ll be happy to take care of anything else you might need, too.” “That’s great to hear since I’m planning on being here for a while.” I chided myself over my first reaction being pleasure over having the chance to get to know him. When hotel guests were off-limits, I had no business getting my hopes up about him. “Well, we’ll just have to take extra-special care of you in that case.” He chuckled in amusement before he pulled out his wallet to give her his ID and credit card. “This is definitely the most hospitable welcome I’ve received at a hotel in a long time.” My sister’s eyebrows shot up in surprise as she looked at his driver’s license. I wondered if maybe he had a funny name until she spoke the words I least wanted to hear. “I can’t tell you how happy we are that you’re here, Mr. Revello.” “Please, call me Luca.” It felt like someone had doused me in freezing cold water and left me outside in a windy blizzard. My temper flared over him having the audacity to be so charming and gorgeous when he was here to ruin everything. He was supposed to be a weaselly bastard with no sense of humor, wearing fancy wingtip shoes that he’d bust his ass on the ice with. How dare he show up looking like a guy I’d love to curl up in front of a fire with and sip spiced hot chocolate with! That took some real fucking nerve.

Excerpt:

“Hey, guys,” Adrianne Hogan said testily through Cassius Black’s earpiece. “You two know we’re on a mission, right?” Cassius Black tried to answer. Unfortunately, Morgan King’s mouth was currently locked on his and stopping all attempts from him to communicate with their team. He pressed his hands subtly against Morgan’s chest. “I don’t think they can hear you,” Zach Mooney muttered to Adrianne across their comm line. “Doesn’t this count as harassment?” Bailey Green hazarded. “You mean, is our esteemed leader physically molesting the newest member of our team?” Julia Chen drawled. “All evidence is currently pointing to that, yes.” The soft sigh that echoed through the earpiece could only have originated from Charlie Lloyd. Morgan finally ended the kiss. The slow, sexy smile the Aerial flashed at Cassius made his belly clench with desire. He clamped down firmly on his burgeoning lust and narrowed his eyes at the angel smirking at him. “What are you doing?” “Blending in,” Morgan replied, unrepentant. “I don’t think it’s working,” Bailey said through their earpieces. “A group of witches practically fainted when they just walked past you.” “You guys stand out like sore thumbs,” Adrianne muttered. “We should have had Zach and Julia on the ground instead of you two lovesick fools.” Cassius swallowed a sigh. Adrianne wasn’t exactly wrong. The hustle and bustle of the magic market under Chinatown rose around Cassius and Morgan where they stood under a bookshop awning. They were currently on the tail of an alchemist reputed to be selling second-rate Glitterfang to the community of magic users in San Francisco. The cocktail of rat poison and bleach-infused magic powder he’d been peddling had already landed scores of people in hospital. Though Hexa was gunning for the man’s head, it was up to Argonaut as the agency responsible for law and order in the supernatural and magic communities to track down and arrest the criminal. Their source had told them the alchemist would be making an appearance at the market today, although the wizard hadn’t been certain of the exact location of the makeshift booth their target would erect. Cassius, Morgan, and their team had been there for two hours already and had yet to spot him. The physical description of the alchemist varied between his victims’ accounts, making it clear he was using an illusion spell to mask his true identity. Cassius’s ability to accurately detect the scent of a person’s soul core meant they would be able to narrow down their options quickly once he made an appearance. Cassius and Morgan joined the throng of people navigating the alleys, the glow of flame torches casting their shadows on the ground. Though it was still daytime, the underground market saw no natural light and was permanently bathed in a soft, orange twilight. Cassius knew the place would get even busier once the sun set. It was fortunate the alchemist hadn’t chosen to come there at nighttime, when his scent would have been harder to filter out among the host of others that would have clouded the air. A hint of something familiar drifted past Cassius’s nostrils as they turned onto a narrow path in the eastern district a short while later. The San Francisco underground magic market was the biggest emporium of its kind on the west coast and spanned three city blocks. It was divided into five districts: north, south, east, west, and central. The central district was where the most expensive shops were located. It regularly attracted magic users from nearby cities, the variety of rare goods drawing them in despite the hefty price tags. Cassius bumped into a witch, mumbled an apology, and carried on walking. “You got something?” Morgan said lightly. “Yes.” “Get ready to mobilize,” Morgan warned the rest of their team.
