A librarian discovers she’s a witch.


Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three. 


She has a desperate crush on a man who doesn’t know she exists. Her doting grandmother insists she meet her long-absent mother. She’s working as a librarian, trapped in absurd costumes and serving up lattes in a last-ditch effort to keep her employer solvent.


In lieu of a well-deserved raise, Jane is allowed to live in an ancient cottage on the library grounds. She soon discovers a hidden chamber filled with magical books that awaken her inner witch.


Her first spell releases a smart-mouthed feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men. Those witchy workings draw an overbearing astral enforcer, David Montrose.


Will magic solve Jane’s problems? Or only bring her more disasters?


“[A]n irresistible tale of power and love, friendship and acceptance…” – Romantic Times

A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

Librarian Jane Madison’s life has turned upside down since she discovered she’s a witch. The local coven has issued an invitation she can’t refuse—work a spell to protect their new safehold or lose her beloved arcane books, her sassy feline familiar, and her brooding astral protector, David Montrose.


But the coven’s test isn’t the only challenge Jane faces. There’s her new boyfriend, a handsome Brit who seems determined to distract her from magic. And a witchy friend who has a distinctly loose grasp on arcane ethics. Not to mention a long-absent mother, a mojito-loving best friend, and a boss who expects Jane to step up to the next level in library management.


Is sorcery the answer to all of Jane’s problems? Or is magic only another name for disaster?

A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.
Librarian-witch Jane Madison is learning a magical lesson the hard way: use it or lose it! Juggling major deadlines at work and a jam-packed social schedule, Jane has taken a break from her arcane life. Now, her magic is taking a break from her—books are fading, runes are crumbling, and her entire witchy collection may soon be lost.
Ordinarily, Jane would just buckle down and work a spell or two. But things are strained after an unexpectedly amorous encounter with her arcane protector, David Montrose. And her love life gets even more complicated when she meets a great guy—the type of man a smart woman marries. Moreover, she’s obligated to serve as maid of honor for her beloved grandmother, and her library career won’t take no for an answer. Desperate, Jane stakes everything on one last-ditch spell.
Will Jane get her magic back? Or will she be finished as a witch forever?

A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

Jane Madison's life is perfect. She's left her unsatisfying librarian job, moved to the country with her boyfriend David Montrose (who is also her sworn astral protector), and opened a school for witches.


Alas, Jane never thought a couple of students could possibly be so challenging. And she didn’t plan on her feline familiar growing distracted and disenchanted with all things magical. She certainly didn't think Hecate's Court would mandate a Major Working as soon as Halloween. And it never crossed her mind that she and David would end up fighting about…everything!


Before long, Jane wonders if she should ditch her school altogether. But that would have dire magical repercussions—in addition to tossing her love-life in the trash. Can Jane find a survival guide in time to rescue the Jane Madison Academy—and everything else she holds dear?

A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

Sometimes a thunderstorm is just a thunderstorm. But not this time.


Jane Madison’s school for witches is in session, and the first order of business is an intricate Samhain ritual. Alas, in the midst of a sudden, unseasonable deluge, a classic Greek monster is released into the magic circle.  Jane succeeds in vanquishing the beast, but only with the assistance of her sworn enemy, the Coven Mother of Washington DC.


Crisis averted, Jane would be perfectly happy to plan her wedding to her astral protector, David Montrose. But how can she look at seating charts when she’s under attack by more monsters, the Coven Mother, and the highest law in the witchy land, Hecate’s Court?


All these disasters can’t be coincidence. One of Jane’s students must be a traitor. But will Jane find the turncoat before she loses everything—and everyone—she holds dear?

In this all-new novella, New York Times bestselling author Juliet Blackwell’s popular characters from her Witchcraft Mysteries and Haunted Home Renovation Mysteries find themselves joining forces to solve a supernatural dilemma…
 
When Mel Turner is hired to rehab an old Victorian mansion to act as the eerie setting for a Halloween bash, she’s expecting the normal challenges—old wiring, bad plumbing, maybe a ghostly specter or two. But when a young man is killed after spending the night in the house, and the mannequins in the attic start to come to life, it’s clear that this is serious paranormal activity. Maybe this time, a real witch is needed. 

Recommended by a mutual friend, vintage clothes expert Lily Ivory arrives to offer her help with the mannequins. Armed with Lily’s spells and Mel’s know-how, the two women must figure out the cause of all of the ghostly commotion—before Mel’s renovation project turns into even more of a deadly haunt…

Bitten by a vampire, first night on the job.


Sarah Anderson has finally found her dream job: Clerk of Court for the Washington DC Night Court. Dream job, that is, until she’s attacked by a vampire defendant. 


James Morton, Sarah’s alluring boss, saves her life by letting her drink his own vampire blood. But then he insists on self-defense training that’s nearly as dangerous as any courtroom criminal. He also tasks her with handling Chris Gardner, a nosy human reporter whose questions hit too close to paranormal home.


Desperate to belong—despite her increasingly unsettled dreams—Sarah soon lives a double life. By day, she answers Chris’s shrewd inquiries, fighting her powerful attraction to the journalist who can expose all. By night, she works with James to outwit a criminal vampire mastermind.


How long can Sarah juggle the magical and the mundane before she loses everything?
