About The Book: Genna Cosworth, a five-hundred-year-old witch overcome by loneliness, casts a beauty spell upon herself in an effort to find love—even if it’s just for one night.
Richard Barrentine is a man any woman could fall in love with: tall, dark, and irresistibly handsome. The pair spend a passionate evening together, but when the midnight hour draws near, Genna realizes she cannot live without him.
Desperate, Genna comes to the only conclusion a witch in her position could…she has to freeze time.
But can she live with herself after having brought light and love to her life by plunging the remainder of the world into darkness for an eternity? Perhaps the better question is can Richard give his heart to the woman who, for him, is willing to do just that?
The Review:
What a good All Hallows Eve story. Genna is a witch 300 years old and came to live in the “New World” after leaving England 100 years ago. She left because she was verbally tortured from harsh words saying how ugly she was. Upon finding an incantation in her book of spells that for one night on the auspicious time every 100 years she can find love, she gazes at her new “beautiful body”. She sets out to find the man of her dreams at a local bar and finds him.
The story is short and dragged at the beginning, but once Genna and her new love, Richard, get together, the pace picks up. The sex scene is hot and the ending had a twist. There were a few moments that were predictable, but I still enjoyed the read. There is a lesson to be learned and without giving away the ending, suffice it to say, it was delivered well without preaching.
Add this story to your to be read list.
