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

Former warder David Montrose has a problem. Or two. Or three.


He's been fired from his job protecting the witches of Washington DC. Now, he's stuck working a dead-end job at Hecate's Court while he tries to redeem his reputation and put his life back together.


Which would be a decent plan if things weren't so…complicated. His new boss is a tyrant. His father says he's disgraced the family name. And instead of sympathizing, his best friend is trying to drag him onto the front lines of an all-out supernatural war. 


Just as David gets a glimpse of the elusive work-life-magic balance, he's summoned back to warder status. His unexpected new charge is a captivating witch who possesses the strongest powers he's ever seen. David already has enough on his plate. How can he possibly juggle work, warfare, and warding Jane Madison?


He'd better figure things out soon. Jane's safety—and all of magical Washington—depends on him!

"A sexy, magical romp, sure to bring de la Cruz a legion of new fans."
-Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of The Otherworld series

From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.

The three Beauchamp women-Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid-live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret-they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

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?
