Title: Crossroads (The Wanderlust Series, #1)
Author: Glory Rabenaugh
As High Priestess of the most up & coming Coven in the world, Reece Crawford figures that her future has already been mapped out for her. Unfortunately, being High Priestess with incredible power can be too tempting for other supernaturals. Sexy witches, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves all play a part in this exciting and intriguing series.
Reece closed up her altar room just as she heard a knock on her bedroom door. Nathan stuck his head in cautiously. “Is it all clear?” he asked.
Reece gave him a tired smile and waved him in. She sank down into her bed, still wearing the beautiful gown and fell back into her pillows. She was always so drained after doing a spell. After her Kindling, it would be different. The power she would have would be welcome. She turned her head in Nate's direction and blew out a breath. “Earlier today, I felt someone using black magic. Piers ‘fessed up to it. I've not asked specifics, and I don't want to. He's changing now, I'm sure you see it as well. His temper is out of control and I'm afraid of what he's planning on doing to you, to anyone that upsets him in any way,” she told Nate is a somber tone.
“Black magic? Are you sure?” Nathan asked not able to believe it himself.
Reece nodded soberly and his eyes met hers in a wide gaze. “I just performed a binding spell on Piers. He will hate me for it I'm sure...but I had no other option. If I had the power, I would have bound Piers from hurting anyone but I won't have that type of power until my Kindling.”
Nate plopped down on the bed beside her and took her hand in his. He opened his mouth to say something but the bedroom door flew open and Piers strode in. Reece gasped and stood up quickly. Nathan also rose and faced Piers.
“I had to warn him. You know I had to,” Reece said as she walked over to him slowly. Piers glared at her, the anger directed towards her now.
“You had to huh? You tell me not to be jealous yet you have him in your bedroom...on your bed. This is between me and him, my so called friend,” Piers snarled.
“Piers,” she began but Piers interrupted.
“I warned you not to make me jealous again. It ends now Reece,” he cried angrily.
Piers grabbed Reece’s wrist roughly and pulled her towards him. She gasped at his roughness and it killed that one soft spot left in his heart to make her hurt. But damn it, the image of the two of them lying in bed, hand in hand, about to do what the gods only knew was burning a hole right through the middle of him. When these blinding rages had started to take him over, Piers had initially fought them. He didn’t want Reece to see that side of him and he definitely didn’t want her to see the internal battle he was going through just to keep the rages at bay. But Piers had decided to stop fighting the urge to hurt. Hurting others felt good, felt delicious. It satisfied a part of him even Reece couldn’t touch. And he was starting to get greedy with that feeling. Holding his tiny woman close enough to him to run his nose along her jaw if he wanted, he held those tiny wrists of hers and squeezed, liking the whimper that escaped her lips. Piers knew it was only a matter of seconds until he goaded Nate enough to react and he was right. Nate rushed in between them and shoved Piers back, wrenching Reece out of his grasp. Now’s the time, he told the inner beast inside of himself. Piers charged Nate ready to relish in the ass kicking that Nate had been asking for this whole time. Piers raised his fist and then it was as if he ran head on into a brick wall. He bounced back and tried again but couldn't move another inch forward.
Reece watched wide-eyed as her spell came to fruition. Piers looked shocked, and then confused. His eyebrows drew close together. He stepped back a step and then tried again. His coal black eyes flew to Reece knowingly.
“You didn't!” he shouted in disbelief.
“You gave me no choice,” she said folding her arms in front of her chest. His face crumpled and Reece had to bite her tongue to stop her from going to him.
“You...I can't believe it. You betrayed me Reece.” Tears filled his eyes and spilled onto his cheeks.
“I didn't Piers. Please listen,” she began.
“No!” he shouted. “You've chosen whose side you want to be on.” Then, he practically ran out of the room.
