bestselling author of A Merry Little Meet CuteGillian Armstead-Bancroft--Pride of the East Side and once-perfect bruja, wife, and mother--is going to spend her summer getting good at being bad.
The first time she left Freedom, Kansas, behind, she did it by doing everything right.
This time, she'll hide from the large Mexican American family welcoming her home and work in secret to break the curse that's erased her magical life. Only by doing it all wrong can Gillian get herself and her two children away from the ghosts of her hometown by summer's end.
Nicky Mendoza is an answer to her prayers. He was the practical solution to the problem of her virginity when they were younger, and now, as a gorgeous artist in town for only a weekend, he's the ideal man to launch her down the path of ruination.
But Gillian isn't the only one who's cursed.
Nicky has been plagued by his furtive, enduring love for her as long as he's been haunted by his cadejo, the phantom black dog that stalks his psyche. He'll stick around to be whatever Gillian needs him to be this summer--but he won't touch her. Touching her, then watching her leave again, would ruin him

Book 2: Full Moon Over Freedom
"Full Moon Over Freedom
is a layered, complex look at love and identity and the complications of starting over when you're haunted by both the near and distant past. Gillian is a fully realized heroine--fierce, flawed, wounded, and so determined--and readers won't soon forget her and the magic she brings to the page." -Kate Clayborn, author of Georgie, All Along
"A masterfully crafted second chance love story that aches as deliciously as it burns. With its deft blend of history, inspired social commentary, phenomenal character development, and scorching chemistry, this book reads like Laura Esquivel's and Susan Elizabeth Philips's perfectly sexy love child... The kind of book that reminds me why this genre owns my heart.
