Love spells are dangerous, even more so for those who cast them…

Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. Instead, he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not?

Jessie Anderson has been taught that her kind hides who they really are. And she has a problem on her hands. Someone knows her secret and she must do all she can to protect herself. What other choice does she have? Jessie casts a spell on a good man, a man with whom she can’t fight her attraction. The spell doesn’t work quite as planned.

Messing with free will is always a bad idea.

To top it off, Ethan’s treatment of her is so addictive. Deep down, she knows the effects will wear off, and yet his feelings seem genuine. It’s just a spell…right?

 

AUTHOR Q&A – About the Characters

Character Name: Ethan Hamilton

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Ethan used to be a police officer back in Seattle, but he is settling into a new home in Yachats, Oregon. He’s generous, honorable, and cares about other people.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

He’s very hard on himself, and sees his flaws first rather than noticing any accomplishments. It’s also a challenge for him to trust others, or accept help when he needs it.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Ethan is a real foodie, and in another life, he could’ve been a famous chef. He learned how to cook from his grandmother, and has made a point to expand on his talents in the kitchen. This tends to impress the women he dates.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

He is more forgiving than he gives himself credit for.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

Yes, I think they’ll see he’s a good man, that despite his plight, he is deserving of a decent life.

 

Character Name: Jessie Anderson

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Jessie owns a small giftshop, selling homemade candles and other New Age wares. Also as a Wiccan, she is a strong, independent soul, and finds joy in her craft.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

She doesn’t easily trust others. She fears no one will understand her and her gifts, doesn’t even open up to her neighbors in town.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Jessie fondly remembers the homemade foods her grandma used to make, but nowadays she doesn’t have a lot of time or energy to spend on a good meal.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

She sees beauty in the world, in the gifts Nature has provided.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

I think they will empathize with Jessie’s fear of someone discovering her secrets, and root for the couple’s relationship to succeed.
