Is this her dream job…or a nightmare waiting to happen?

Desperate for cash, Katherine Wheeler skims Craigslist for a job — any job. When her eye lands on what looks like a too-good-to-be-true office assistant job, she’s too broke to heed her misgivings. Within minutes, she has an interview scheduled.

Behind the green door of Pyramid Imports, Pieter Van Rijn’s piercing blue eyes and rugged features nearly stop Katherine in her tracks. Before she knows it, she has $2,000 a week, the keys to a brand-new company car, and a perfect-gentleman boss who oozes sex appeal.

But almost before the end of her first day, red flags start flying in all directions, clues that seem completely at odds with the man who treats her like a rare and precious find, whose eyes flash with jealousy when another man shows an interest.

As the sexual tension between them ratchets up, questions clamor ever louder in the back of Katherine's mind. Is the man who entices her with brief touches and a single, searing kiss everything he seems to be…or should she run like the wind?

To find a dangerous grimoire, they’ll have to break a few rules…and maybe their hearts.

When warlock Tony Castillo picks up Cassandra Sandoval at the airport, the copper-haired witch brings his restless, aimless life into razor-sharp focus…and triggers a wince-inducing case of foot-in-mouth disease. Luckily, her cool, hazel-green gaze betrays not a flicker of answering attraction. Nope, Cassandra is all business. Which Tony can understand, given the magnitude of her task.

Cassandra has one job: retrieve the de la Paz grimoires from the heavily warded hiding place at Tony’s family home, conceal them with her unique shielding power, and immediately return them to her clan’s territory. Easy. Quick. No time for anything to go wrong, to give in to the temptation of a too-handsome warlock.

They find Tony’s mother unconscious and the grimoires missing, the only clue a slimy residue reeking of Escobar magic. As they race to get the dangerous books out of the wrong hands, Cassandra and Tony cross a few boundaries, break a few more rules, and find something neither expected — love. But if they fail, nothing will shield them, or the world as they know it, from unrelenting evil.

Note: An Ill Wind is a standalone, no-cliffhangers romance in the Witches of Canyon Road series. It takes place approximately four months after the events of book 5, Demon Born.

PRAISE OF THE PALACE OF LOST MEMORIES

"It captured my imagination and curiosity so deeply that I could not stop reading until the end." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer Patricia.

"enticing, engaging, and magical." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer love2readbooks.


The king's magnificent palace was built in a matter of weeks. No one saw the builders, no villagers are allowed beyond the gilded gate, and only one servant has ever left. The haunted look in her eyes as she was recaptured by the palace guards is something Josie, daughter of the village doctor, has never forgotten.

For Josie, the palace is a mystery that grows more intriguing after she meets the captain of the guards, a man known only as Hammer, as mysterious and captivating as the palace itself. Whispers of magic fuel Josie's desire to uncover the truth, but an ordinary girl like her can only dream of ever being invited inside.

When the king decides to take a wife from among the eligible daughters of the noble families, the palace gates are finally thrown open and the kingdom's elite pour in. In a court where old rivalries and new jealousies collide, the king's favorite is poisoned and the doctor is summoned. As her father's assistant, Josie finally sees inside the lavish walls, but she soon learns the palace won't surrender its secrets easily, for not a single resident, from the lowest servant to the king himself, has a memory from before the palace existed.

In the search for the truth, Josie is drawn deeper into danger, and the answers she seeks might shake the very foundations of the kingdom.
