The Reluctant Witch: Book 1: An Unfortunate Twist of Fate


Brenna is the daughter of the most powerful witch in the world. Brenna’s mother loves her daughter deeply and agrees to let Brenna choose whether she wants to live her life as an immortal witch or a human. Unforeseen events push Brenna to choose much earlier than she would have liked. Kidnapped by a demon and narrowly escaping an immortal life as his slave, Brenna decides being a witch with the ability to protect herself is much better than eternal torment and servitude.


Between settling on her fate, the kidnapping and finally being rescued by a charming wolf, Brenna has a trifecta of troubles she was not prepared for.

Silver Bells, Curses and Spells


Andrea Benezier is a clumsy witch who can’t seem to control her magic. Setting someone's hair on fire and messing with the weather are everyday mishaps for her.


Eryx Castille is a pretentious billionaire who has come to claim what is his—the stores run by Andrea and her neighbors.


After the death of her parents on Christmas Eve three years ago, Andrea now hates the holidays and anything associated with it. When Andrea receives an unwanted gift, The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, she is sure Eryx is behind the book that keeps mysteriously appearing.


When Eryx questions her magic abilities it's the last straw in an already horrible week. In a fit of defiance, she casts the Christmas Carol Curse and curses them both for seventy-two hours.


Will they survive this curse without killing each other? Things will get heated but will it be enough to melt the snow built up around their cold hearts? Or will they learn the true magic of the Christmas season?
