Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge Excerpt

Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic (The Dowser Series) by Meghan Ciana Doidge

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

“I thought you weren’t going to bite me tonight,” I said, pleased that my voice sounded much calmer than my mind.
He tilted his head and gazed at my neck … actually, at my carotid artery. My pulse sped up; I was surprised it could get any higher.
“I wasn’t,” he murmured.
“Well, watching my blood move through my veins isn’t going to be helpful, then.”
He lifted his eyes to mine, and for a moment seemed almost … amused. But then, he just stared at me. My back started to ache from holding myself so stiffly against the wall and away from him, but hell if I was going relax into his neck hold.
“Your hand is cold,” I finally said, having no idea what to do when a vampire just stared at you.
“I could warm it.” He flicked his eyes to my neck again and showed me the very tips of his teeth — but no fangs and no red eyes. He wasn’t going to bite me. And if I wasn’t completely crazy, his tone sounded almost … flirtatious.
“What do you want, vampire?” I asked, putting as much steel as I dared into the question.
