Duse Ammadon has been without Skylar for over four hundred years and he'll not wait another minute. His life mate is the first to be reincarnated since the depraved Watcher, Asmoday, killed his brother's mate, forcing her into a sexual response, which robbed her of her magic essences. Now a whole world of criminal possibilities has opened to the once innocent race of Watchers. Because Duse knows Skylar could be the next target for Asmoday's depravity, he doesn't have the luxury of re-introducing Skylar to Watcher ways or for a slow, patient seduction. To set the protection spell, he has to make love to her immediately. If only she could remember him from one lifetime to another.
Skylar Halifax always knew she was different. She could see auras and manipulate subtle matter to promote healing. She sensed there was something unique about Duse, something beyond his god-in-man form and phenomenal good looks. Duse can't waste any time convincing Skylar that he is different. So different, in fact, that he's not even human.
Will Skylar accept Duse as her life mate or will Duse have to use other means to convince her that he is her destiny?

Excerpt from Subtle Magic by Beth Kery
There was something incredibly erotic in the tension that she felt rolling off him. Skylar suddenly wished that her thighs weren't open, because she had the urge to clamp them tightly shut to alleviate the enormous pressure at her liquefying core. When he brushed his thumbs lightly across her nipples, Skylar groaned, arching her back, granting him greater access to what he held so reverently in his hands. She felt his touch permeate her all the way to her womb. Her fingers clenched into his thick hair desperately when he leaned forward and glided his slightly rough, warm tongue across her erect nipple. She gasped at the surprising intensity of pleasure. To her amazement, a deep, animal-like growl began to emanate from his throat when he took the nipple fully into his warm mouth. He continued to finesse it with his tongue, but the feel of the vibration from his throat made her melt with desire. She called out his name, shaky with passion. Duse answered her call by drawing on her powerfully, sucking hotly, maintaining the suction just beneath her threshold of pain. Skylar's eyes crossed at the sharp arrow of desire that sliced through her.
Duse visually appreciated the results of his ministrations with a small grunt of satisfaction a while later. He'd pulled her so tightly that the defined center of her areolas had swelled to three times its normal size, seeming to beg him for more attention. He lifted her other breast to his mouth, but fingered the other one longingly, genuinely hating to leave it. His mouth worked its magic all over again.
Skylar squirmed with intense arousal and a need for release. She didn't know what had overcome Duse, but he suddenly seemed entirely peaceful. His focus on her was sharp, precise, honed to a laser beam of single-minded intent. His tongue continued to alternate between lapping at her with erotic languor, lashing her with rough intensity and sucking her with unapologetic greed. When he bit down on her gently and scraped her sensitized flesh over the ridge of his teeth while his tongue fiercely whipped her, Skylar cried out as the first powerful wave of orgasm crashed into her.
