Karen Leabo brews a steamy cauldron of romance and suspense as a spirited couple battles an ancient curse with the power to destroy their love. Following up on a tip, freelance reporter Nate Wagner tracks down a real-life witch, who as a child shocked all of Boston with her extraordinary psychic skills. But petite, blond Tess DeWitt seems like more of a lost soul than a sorceress. Nate’s skeptical of all that hocus-pocus, anyway—until Tess’s life is threatened by black magic. Can he gain her trust and help defeat her demons, real and imagined, before she disappears forever?
Unable to control her ability to read minds, Tess hasn’t let any man touch her in years. And yet brushing up against Nate is different . . . very different. But then the hex that’s plagued her family for centuries comes roaring back to life, putting everyone and everything she cares about—including Nate—in grave danger. Now Tess’s only hope lies in harnessing the supernatural powers she’s spent her life pretending were nothing more than fantasy.
