WOOING THE WITCH
BY V. KELLY
Release Date: October 16, 2020
Whitney Wallace is a WITCH.
Not the kind of witch that flies around on broomsticks or gets crushed by houses, but the kind of witch that has everyone in the halls running away screaming.
She’s mean, ruthless, and I’m pretty sure she’s allergic to fun.
For the last two years she’s been my college RA, and I’ve done my best to avoid her as much as possible. Her reputation leaves her less than desirable, but that doesn’t change the fact that I have forty-eight hours to woo The Witch and convince her to throw a party, or I can kiss my pledge into my dad’s fraternity goodbye.
I thought it was all going to be easy until I realized something very important about Whitney Wallace.
I might actually like her.
Pickled toad eyes, the wings of bats, and a sprinkle of nightshade won’t be needed for this potion of love, because I’m determined to woo The Witch and make this one Halloween Party neither of us will ever forget.
Monster boss. That’s what they call Jonathan Barnes, Boston’s most successful architect. They say he’s arrogant.
They say his gorgeous exterior conceals a wicked core. Like the rambling Victorians he restores, Jonathan Barnes is a complicated, beautiful, mysterious man.
He also famously fired three assistants in one day.
But he’s the best at what he does, which is why I’m determined to make a good first impression. Sure, I’m starting out as his secretary, and I’m wearing my sister’s hand-me-downs because I can’t afford new clothes.
But I can hide my working class roots. If I can tame the monster, I might just get to use my architecture degree.
It doesn’t matter that it’s Halloween on a Friday and my grad school friends are out celebrating. I’ve got one chance to show Jonathan Barnes I’m not afraid of him.
Of course, I didn’t count on being stuck with him all night in a building rumored to be haunted.
I’ve never worried about things that go bump in the night. Bump and grind is a whole other story…
Fifteen years ago I left home to pursue my dream, leaving all I ever known behind.
Making it can never replace what I lost. As the lead singer of one of the hottest bands in the country, I should be happy but there’s something missing in my life. Suddenly, I’m feeling restless and unfulfilled.
When I hear my best friend is getting married, I decide it’s time to return to Lost Hills. Secretly, I’m hoping I’ll have a great awakening.
One look at the bride’s best friend and I’m blown away. Everything becomes crystal clear and I know she’s meant to be mine.
Too bad she’s already made up her mind that I’m only after a fling. It’s time for me to prove to my girl I’m saving all my wicked ways for her, the woman I love.
Makeup-artist-to-the-stars Esther Donovitch adores the world of make-believe and movie- making but wishes her love life was more reality and less fantasy. It’s hard to meet a regular guy in her line of work, especially when nursing a secret crush on one of Hollywood’s most popular actors, Crew Cannon. When his fans crash a private Halloween party, Esther helps him escape, never anticipating that her good deed will lead to a spontaneous road trip across Napa wine country with the crazy-hot movie star who has the leading role in her steamy dreams.
Crew Cannon has it all—and he’s ready to hand it back. Raised by two of the industry’s biggest icons, he’s accustomed to fame and fortune, but suddenly he wants something different.
Something a little less pretend and a lot more real. But where does a guy with one of the most recognizable faces on the planet go to find a woman who will see the real Crew Cannon and not the glossy version? A generous, lovely, down to earth woman like Esther Donovitch.
When Esther and Crew arrive at their final destination, will it be the end of the journey…or just the start?
