Heather never wanted to be a witch. Her family would have been dysfunctional
enough without superpowers, but with them? They’re nightmares.
And all Heather wants to be is normal.
To fall in love without damning the sweet, incredibly hot, and perfectly
dominant man who keeps opening his door every time she shows up vulnerable and
begging for a distraction.
But the Pritchett family doesn’t get happily ever afters. Bound by a curse that
demands blood, they’ll take Heather’s life to keep their gifts if she refuses
to doom another.
With time running out to make her choice, will she give in and claim the
dangerous magic waiting for her?
Or will she sacrifice herself?
