A humorous paranormal short story by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

 First time available as an ebook!

Actress Kelly Reilly knew she’d chosen a tough career, but she’d always found success with her boyfriend, Rob Cornell, at her side. When Rob accepts a role in New York City without a word of discussion, though, Kelly is thrown for a loop.

Rescue soon arrives in the form of a genie, complete with magical wishes to turn the tide. But Kelly’s first wish goes dramatically awry.

Kelly is desperate to right that wrong—not to mention getting her love life back on track and advancing her career. Can she negotiate her genie’s trickster ways? Or will her hopes amount to nothing more than wishful thinking?

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

(Previously released as When Good Wishes Go Bad.) 

Becca Morris loves her job--producer at an off-Broadway theater--until her boyfriend steals her heart, her money, and all the theater's funds.  With her career on the line, Becca finally catches a break when she receives a brass lamp, complete with a gender-bending, wish-granting genie. 

Wielding her wishes, Becca gets the chance to stage a challenging new play that can put the theater back on track.  It's even written by the adorably awkward Ryan Thompson--who just might mend her tattered heart.  

Alas, the only prospect for financing the show is the world's most obnoxious popcorn magnate, and Ryan flat-out refuses to take money from a jerk. Just how difficult can it be for a woman to wish her way to love and success?

Cupid she’s not—but she’s pretty darn close.

Nothing in the world feels better than finding her clients the perfect date. Of course, finding one for herself might be nice, but creative bill paying is for college students—not for accomplished doctors in their forties. Satisfied customers keep the electricity on.

But wait, according to all the magazines the forties are the new twenties. Now if only she felt twenty…

Everything in Dr. Mariah Bates’ life was perfectly fine until the moment she quit her celebrity radio job to start a dating business. Two years, a cheating ex, and a very ugly divorce later, she’s suddenly homeless and living with her mother. Not exactly how she’d envisioned her life. Not that her mom isn’t great, but come on.

With her cop ex-husband doing everything he can to ruin her business, she’s at her wit's end. Throw in another cop who makes her believe in love at first sight—or at least lust—and life is a mess. Interesting, fun and tummy tingling, but a mess. Especially since another cop is the last thing she needs.

Despite a very persistent, want-to-be beau who insists he's protecting her, it’s time for Mariah to take control of the game her ex has been playing. Punt or pass, she’s due for a touchdown.

Everyone deserves the perfect date—even her.

********

About THE PERFECT DATE Series

The essence of all romantic comedy is that falling in love and navigating an unexpected romance is never easy or simple. Instead, it’s messy and emotional, and if you’re lucky, it’s also sexy and fun.

Some relationship professionals, like my character of Dr. Mariah Bates in this series, sincerely want to help people find their perfect love match. For the various heroines I’ve created, many of whom are older, Mariah’s going to need all the help she can get. Or maybe she just needs to step out of the way. You can be the judge. 


NOTE ABOUT THE HEAT LEVEL: Not being a fan of the word “clean” when applied to romance, I will instead say the heat level in this new series is in the 1-2 range, rather than 3-4 like some of my others. The focus is on sensuality and I’ve packed a lot into these stories.
