Thank you for picking up the fourth book in my paranormal series, A Witch’s Night Out. I’ve always been a huge fan of witches and their feline friends, and I’ve had loads of fun creating my own. I keep my stories lighthearted, the angst to a minimum, and the sex just hot enough to make your face warm. In all my romances, I aim for a few laughs, a handful of clever twists, and a scorching happily ever after.
After the giving her cat familiar a happily ever after in Fireworks at Midnight, I thought leaving Shelley alone in a crumbling house would be cruel and unusual punishment. After all, a witch should never be without a feline companion. With an overprotective big brother hovering around and a magical impediment preventing her from leaving the house, I had to get creative with this 1Night Stand. Knowing my heroine has a sweet tooth, I moved a sexy pastry chef into the house next door—one who can shift into a rather dangerous type of kitty.
Of course, Madame Eve works her uncanny magic to get Shelley some chocolate this Valentines Day, along with a whisk-wielding warlock who has more than one use for caramel sauce. If I managed to keep a smile on your face for a few hours, then my goal as a writer is met. I love hearing from readers, so feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com.

Faced with an anemic employment market and financial woes, college graduate and former witch Mina Mao lands an HR assistant job at Frost and Sons. Having spent her day saving Christmas from Frost Junior’s Grinch-like behavior, she accepts the gift of Madame Eve’s service and heads over to the Castillo Capital. When her date turns out to be her childhood crush and workplace nemesis, she braces herself for the sexiest icy ride of her life.
On All Hallows’ Eve, she gets one night of freedom. Deciding some no-strings-attached sex might take the edge off the intense attraction she feels for her clueless boss, she signs up for Madame Eve’s service. When she meets her masked mystery date at the Castillo Capital, she realizes she might have gotten much more than she bargained for.
After being gifted a one-night stand from his annoying best friend, attorney Leo Difuoco reluctantly ventures to the Castillo Capital to celebrate Halloween. When he meets his oddly familiar green-eyed date in a Cat Woman costume, flames literally ignite, sparks magically fly, and life as he knows it changes forever.
