Caged Magic by Jennifer Lyon Guest Post and #Giveaway


Welcome to My Book Snack's stop for the Caged Magic blog tour! Today I'm featuring a guest post from Jennifer Lyon, an excerpt and the tour giveaway!


Why I Like Witches
Jennifer Lyon

Thank you so much to My Book Snack for having me here today to talk about witches. When I was little I wanted to be a witch so I could turn my annoying older brothers into toads, and conjure up my very own ice cream truck. But as I grew up, I learned about witch hunts throughout time, and realized they were primarily tools to suppress and control women. That is a wrong I can’t right in the real world, but I can in my Wing Slayer Hunter Series.

I created strong witch-heroines who aren’t easily controlled, just ask the demon working so hard to destroy them. But what makes the witches truly courageous is that their magic has a cost. One thing all witches must contend with is witch karma – any harm they intentionally cause with their magic comes back on them three times worse. So can’t fight in the traditional way, but need to outsmart their opponents with magic as a tool.

For me, what makes a character interesting is when the cost is personal. The heroine of Caged Magic, Risa, is a powerful shield witch but that magic is breaking her mind more each time she uses it. Yet when her beloved godchild (a baby) is snatched by a demon, Risa will risk everything to find the baby, including her sanity and her life. She casts her shield anytime those helping her are in trouble because that’s who she is – a witch and a heroine who takes the risk to save those around her.

No worries though, this is a romance novel and Risa finds her hero. Linc is a Wing Slayer Hunter and he needs Risa to break the dark curse destroying him and in return he’ll help her find Kendall. What begins as a deal between two people who need each other grows into a love so powerful, Linc gambles everything—his heart, soul and life—to save Risa from a demon. If you like paranormal stories brimming with magic, heart-pounding action, suspense and sexy romance, I hope you’ll give Caged Magic a try.

Thank you, Jennifer, for introducing us to your heroine, Risa, and your book, Caged Magic!


Title: Caged Magic
Author: Jennifer Lyon
Series: Wing Slayer Hunters #5
Release Date: July 20, 2015

Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.

Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.

But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.

Linc reached across the bathroom, catching her hand. His warm, firm fingers anchored her. Startled, she lifted her gaze to him.

“Come here, Risa.”

She started to shake her head, but pain pierced her skull. She hadn’t recovered yet. It would take hours of sleep to regain some strength.

“Here’s the thing. If you want your high magic, you’re going to have to learn my touch is not like the others. I am not just making use of your body.” He squeezed her hand reassuringly. “Not while I still have a soul. We clear?”

She resisted for a second longer, searching over him with her gaze. When he showed her this kindness, acting as if he cared enough to get to know and understand her, it opened her up, left her too vulnerable.

“Take the first step. That’s all you have to do.” His voice flowed smoothly to wrap around her like a silky ribbon. Her chakras relaxed, and her muscles unlocked.
She took the step.

And won a smile from him. His face softened, a dent forming in his chin while his eyes crinkled. This wasn’t Linc’s charming smile, the one he tossed off with his fast and glib comebacks. That smile had polish.

This one was real, sexy, and made her feel like smiling back. Unsure what to do, she just stood there, staring at the amazing grin on his face.

He reached out, caught her waist and tugged her between his thighs. He tucked her beneath one arm, surrounding her with his body heat.
