  • ‘I am a sucker for an angsty second-chance romance and this story was packed with everything I love! … A 2023 must read!!’ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Bewitched, bothered…and betrothed?

    Love is a hex of a thing, as childhood sweethearts fake a relationship in this charming, witchy, second-chance romcom.

    Emma Bluewater is determined to put life as a witch behind her. She may have been born into witch society, but her days of trying to fit in are over – they ended years ago, when the man she hoped to marry left town without a word. She’s much happier now, living a delightfully mundane human life in Chicago, running her bar, Toil and Trouble. Emma has put her ex firmly in her past.

    Until Bastian walks through the door and announces that he wants her back!

    Bastian had his reasons for leaving Emma, reasons he can never tell her. But a curse on his family dictates he must fulfil their marriage contract or face darker consequences. Emma is even more spellbinding than Bastian remembers, but not easily won over. And time is ticking.

    With secrets and curses swirling around them, Emma and Bastian must navigate dark magic and broken hearts. Magical contracts are not easily broken, and they become even more complicated when you fall in love…

    Fans of The Ex Hex and The Dead Romantics will be ENCHANTED by this fake dating, enemies to lovers romance.
