Lost Library (Lost Library Series) by Kate Baray Excerpt

Lost Library (Lost Library Series) by Kate Baray

Lizzie led a normal life...until the Book arrived.

Author Kate Baray begins her new paranormal romance series with Lost Library, a tale of werewolves, magic, adventure and romance.

John Braxton arrives unannounced on Lizzie’s doorstep. Little does she know that when she invites him for a drink on the porch, Lizzie opens the door to a secret world of Lycan, magic, spelled books, and a power hungry mastermind. Caught up in one man’s search for power, Lizzie soon begins to uncover surprising secrets about her own past and powers—but not before stumbling upon a library like no other. And romance with a serious but sexy Lycan? It might just happen…

Take a romp through the life of the quirky and well-meaning Lizzie as she discovers exactly what it means to live with magic.


            Worth had almost reached the door, when he stopped, straightened, then let out a guttural snarl. A noise very unlike the urbane, sophisticated man Lizzie had seen thus far. He stood silently for a moment. When he turned, Lizzie couldn’t see any sign of the anger or distress he’d voiced. He looked exactly as he always had, elegant and in control. Her heart beat erratically, quickening in panic then slowing as she willed herself to be calm. Something was horribly wrong, every instinct told her so. But she would maintain her composure.
            Worth spoke to both Moore and Lizzie, saying, “I’ll be keeping you company for a few minutes longer. We have some unexpected guests.”
            No! Not now, not yet. That was her first thought. She knew it was John. In her gut—in her heart—she knew it was John. She feared for her family, certainly. But the immediacy of his presence made him the focus of her fear. Worth was a factor John couldn’t have accounted for.
            Her response to Worth was visceral. He frightened her on a level she didn’t truly comprehend. It was as if the juxtaposition of his polished image and the malevolence she knew he harbored made him even more terrible and frightening. Evil should look evil, dammit.
            She needed some kind of plan. She had to help, because sitting by and watching the man she just might be falling in love with fall prey to Worth—well, no. That wasn’t happening.
