The runes Universe, Kindle Worlds
By Dorothy Dreyer
Her whole life, Lexi has known that the voices she hears in her head—omens and harbingers of important things to come—are part of being a witch. But what she doesn’t know is that a soul has escaped its reaping while on her family’s property.
When handsome stranger Caden shows up on his motorcycle to tour the vineyard she grew up on, she isn’t aware that he is a Valkyrie searching for the lost soul. All she knows is that the deep attraction she feels for him is undeniable. When Caden finds out Lexi is a witch and asks her to help him track down the soul, Lexi must come to terms with the fact that Caden is immortal and decide if her feelings for a soul reaper are worth the risks.

Lexi made a soft sound, shifting in my arms as she continued to sleep. Though I sat in her bed, I was above the covers while she was tucked beneath the floral sheets. But her head rested on my chest, and I wondered at the fact that my beating heart hadn’t woken her. Though Arthur’s spirit had possessed Lexi’s body only for a short amount of time, it left her exhausted. She had passed out on the kitchen floor the second Arthur’s soul left her body, and I had been quick to catch her.
I wondered if she even realized I was beside her, holding her, keeping her safe in the cocoon of my arms. And she was safe—I wouldn’t let anything happen to her.
She lifted her cheek and swiped a stray hair away, immediately snuggling into me again. Her lips parted, and the soft word that came out set my pulse racing and made my heart swell.
I had to double-check to be sure she was still asleep. Her breathing was slow and deep, her eyes still shut, and her body warm. Was she dreaming of me? Did she subconsciously know I was here beside her? Or was she calling my name, the longing in her heart for us to be together as strong as it was in mine?
I stroked her hair, looking forward to the moment she would open her eyes so I could tell her how I felt about her.
