Can a witch who’s broken the rules and a reformed bad boy solve a mystery that holds the key to their happiness before their own pasts destroy them?

Cami Donovan broke the first rule of magic—harm none—when she tried to kill her abusive ex-boyfriend with her powers. The “good one” in a family of sister witches, she hides her secret by denying her elemental call to water and lying to her sisters after coming home to Los Angeles. But amily drama and magic come like riptides for Cami.

Sam Corraza believes he’s overcome the abandonment issues of his childhood by dedicating himself to his successful oceanfront restaurant. He’s never known why his parents pushed him away in childhood, but he will have to discover the reason before he can risk forever with the enchanting Cami.

The two are pulled together in unraveling how cinema star Thelma Todd died under suspicious circumstances in 1935. Solving the mystery may unlock their own happiness, but Cami and Sam will each have to confront personal pasts before history rips their new passion apart.

Magic Touch (unpublished manuscript)

2018 Finalist in The Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense

Witch Delia Donovan possesses the magic touch for solving crime in Los Angeles, but can she get past the muscular roadblock who’s her assigned handler to crack the case before their investigation kills them both?

When her kid sister is recruited for a magical FBI task force, psychometric Delia joins the team to protect her family from being exposed as witches. On her first day, Special Agent Mark Cavan is cocky and intense in a hot way… until he demands Delia be fired.

Mark didn’t sign up to be blown off at first sight by a sexy D.A. so hands-off she’s called “Ice Queen.” Her stubborn independence brings up memories of watch his team killed in action on his last combat assignment. He can’t risk losing anyone else, and he can’t stop wanting Delia.

Delia’s magic links the team’s cold case victim to the 1949 unsolved disappearance of Hollywood’s Jean Spangler and a coven tied to both crimes. The coven issues an ultimatum to Delia. She has twenty-four hours to enlist or die.

Can Mark and Delia stop fighting long enough to solve the team’s cold case before she becomes the coven’s next murder victims?
