Title: Magical Kiss
Being a carnal magic user doesn’t make Breeze Hawthorne “easy”. In fact, she’s tired of the nasty names her kind tends to get labeled with. So when she finds herself paired with sexy water user Chehon McFlint, she’s determined to keep things professional, no matter how bad her body burns for him.
A horrid beast is about to break loose from an underwater prison and Breeze is running low on juice. When she fails to get hold of her usual service partner, she’s faced with a decision that could cost her emotionally. Chehon seems ready, willing and able to handle the job of recharging her, but Breeze isn’t so sure he’ll leave her heart intact when the job is over.

What a delightful little short! I was so sad to see it end. From the beginning of the short the character and world were very interesting to me. We don’t get a lot of world building but what was there whets the appetite for more.
Breeze Hawthorne is a carnal magic user. That means she needs sex and the climaxes it generates to build and keep her power. She didn’t get to choose what type of magic she would have, or even get to choose to have magic, it was more a luck of the draw. So to keep herself from getting hurt she has several men she uses to recharge her batteries with no strings attached.
Enter Chehon McFlint, a warlock who draws his power from water. He and Breeze work for Magical and Mystic Security and have been partnered together before but Breeze had never let him know that she was attracted to him. When her latest assignment comes in partnering them to re-cage a beast on the ocean floor, Breeze is low on power and needs to refuel. Her usual choices are both unavailable so Chehon makes his move. We only get the third person perspective of Breeze but from what Chehon says, he has liked her for a while and sees this as a golden opportunity he doesn’t want to miss.
I really enjoyed this story and I wish it had been longer. There are some very nice sexy scenes one a beach and one in the water. I liked how the pace of the story didn’t seem rushed. There is a build up between the characters and a progression to their relationship that felt natural. I enjoyed the characters interaction even though we get more of an understanding of Breeze but Chehon is sexy and seems to know what he wants. The world that Cavanaugh created is very interesting to me and I would love to read more about it.
