His magic is gone. Can he find it in the darkest corners of the witch world…or in her arms?


Who knew being a witch could be so…boring? Ava Castillo dutifully got her college degree, but now what? She itches to get out of Santa Fe and find adventure like her big brother, Tony. Find some use for her magical talent. Find love.


Who knew she’d find excitement standing right on her own doorstep?


Gabriel Escobar stood up to his evil older brother to help Tony and Cassandra Castillo, and paid a heavy price. Stripped of his magic and banished from his clan, there’s only one place he can think of to go — to the Castillo clan, in the hope that they can help him regain his powers.


Who knew he’d find magic standing right on the other side of Tony’s door?


Together, Ava and Gabriel embark on a quest to find the spell that will restore his magical gifts. A journey that takes them from the streets of Santa Fe to the darkest corners of old New Orleans to a hidden village in El Salvador, where the answers they desperately need wait for them...along with a threat that could strip them of everything…


…including their lives.


Note: Higher Ground is a standalone novel, but it may enrich your enjoyment to read the previous books in the Witches of Canyon Road series.

His prison lives in his very bones. She holds the key that could free him…or break him.


Elena Salazar doesn’t exactly have permission to house-sit, but she’s sure her cousin Ava won’t mind the not-quite break-in. After all, Ava would want her to feel safe. And free. Two concepts Elena’s still adjusting to after eleven years a prisoner in her own home, thanks to her terrifying ability to summon demons.


She manages to make peace with the resident ghost in Ava’s house, but she has to do some really fast talking when a tattooed, tautly muscled warlock shows up with Ava’s keys in his hand and deep-seated pain in his troubled eyes.


The Salvadoran Escobar clan is healing under new primus Gabriel’s leadership. But no one is likely to forget that the cruel former primus used Alessandro Escobar and his fearful gift as a weapon, unwilling though he was. When Gabriel sends him to Ava’s house for an extended “vacation,” Alessandro packs his bags with a heavy heart.


No one warned him the house was already occupied.


Elena is beautiful, skittish, fragile, with a demon for a friend and a nervous habit of hiding behind her books and her art. Alessandro drinks in her sweetness like water from a desert spring. But if he dares reveal who he is, what he is, the key to her heart could vanish, leaving him the lonely prisoner of his gift.


This time, for good.


Note: Haunted Hearts, the final book in Christine Pope’s Witches of Canyon Road series, can be enjoyed as a standalone paranormal romance.

Three full-length books in the Witches of Cleopatra Hill paranormal romance series:

SYMPATHETIC MAGIC:

Some guys have all the luck….

Warlock "Lucky" Lucas Wilcox has a gift that ensures his success in all things, but his magic fails him completely when it comes to sexy Margot Emory, the vibrant “elder” of the McAllister witch clan.

Margot’s own magical gifts weren’t enough to protect her from a terrible romantic betrayal, and she’s wary of repeating past mistakes — especially with a Wilcox — even if it means she’s destined to live her life alone.

When Lucas sets his sights on the one woman he wants but can't have, it may take a bit of sympathetic magic for the couple to have the happy ending they deserve. (Book 4 of the Witches of Cleopatra Hill)

PROTECTOR:

Caitlin McAllister has been keeping a secret. While her clan suffers for lack of a seer, she’s been hiding her gift of second sight — hiding and running away from a destiny she does not want and has done her best to escape. Unfortunately, she finds that keeping secrets carries its own price when she and two of her friends end up in the hands of three evil warlocks who seem intent on using the young witches for their own dark purposes.

Far from her clan’s territory, Caitlin turns to Alex Trujillo, whose grandmother is the prima of the de la Paz witch clan and whose own gift is the ability to cast a unique kind of protective spell, to help her with tracking down the warlocks who kidnapped her friends.

As Alex and Caitlin work together to save her friends, they find themselves falling under one another's spell. But their combined talents may not be enough to save the kidnapped witches…or to stop a murderous conspiracy that threatens the safety of all the Arizona witch clans.

SPELLBOUND:

Saving his past could destroy her future….

Damaged and desperate, Danica Wilcox searches for sanctuary and peace of mind after enduring vile and brutal treatment by the dark warlock Matías Escobar. Hoping for safe haven at an old summer cabin owned by the Wilcox witch clan for more than a hundred years seems to be her safest option. But when her rejuvenating R&R is interrupted by a ghostly visitor, Danica sets out to solve the mystery of his death. 

Determined to uncover long-hidden truths, Danica takes a journey into the past, calling upon her own special gift of manipulating time. However, the secrets that she uncovers were meant to remain buried. Torn between loyalty to her family and the beyond-earthly pull she feels for the mysterious stranger, Danica struggles between what is right and what is wrong, between changing the past and altering the future. Can Danica save her “ghost’s” life without destroying the Wilcox clan entirely?
