Hecate's Own

Heart’s Desire, Book 2

I lost a lot of sleep with this book as I just couldn’t put it down. It grabbed my attention and my imagination went wild as I became so wrapped up in this story that it felt real. Not only is this a great romance with some awesome paranormal elements but it’s so much more as family ties are strained and people learn that there is sometimes more than meets the eye. Zachary is extremely lovable and Jo is his perfect match and mate, even if she does think he’s a screw up. The fight between good and evil comes to a head with human sacrifices. And, heads of covens get involved as do princes until the witch no one really wanted is wanted by all.

This is the second book in this series but it will stand alone. However, the storyline is so powerful that you’re going to want to find the first book if you haven’t already read it. This complex story packs a huge punch and will have you under its spell very quickly.

Zachary grew up in a powerful family of wizard which would be great except he’s a witch and unlike wizards, witches cast spells using feelings and what feels right. That would be fine as Zachary is very powerful but even the simplest spells he tries don’t work. He’s been sent to Cincinnati to learn how to master his magic and he’s even been sent to the children’s classroom. Jo is the teacher there and while she’s attracted to Zach, she just can’t seem to understand how he can’t cast even simple spells. When he turns the prince’s throne into an M&M, Zach gives up and goes to his brother Chris’s house. Jo ends up following him and soon the reason things don’t always work well for Zach comes to light. It’s not what anyone expects! But soon, Zach will be in a fight to save not only his mate but possibly his brother Daniel’s mate as well. Can he control what he’s never controlled before?

Book Blurb for Hecate's Own

When a wolf is hot for a witch, the sparks can be downright dangerous.

Zachary Beckett has finally done something right. He saved his brother’s life, and his reward is a ticket to Cleveland to train as a witch. Except every spell he casts wreaks havoc—until he’s banished to the children’s classroom.

At least his teacher is easy on the eyes. It isn’t long before the heat is rising, and it has nothing to do with a bubbling cauldron.

Jo has never met a walking Karma bomb like Zachary. His blue eyes haunt her, his body is made for sin, and his magic? The less said about that the better. But Jo is determined to help him, even if she has to fight their mutual attraction, tooth and nail.

When Zach discovers he’s been operating under a hex, he and Jo come together in a blazing-hot ritual to break its hold and reveal Zach’s destiny to fight evil. But the old enemy who cast the spell won’t give up until every Beckett male is stripped of his mate. Which could leave Zach to howl in agony forever—and doom Jo to a fate worse than death.

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, graphic language, a sexy, awkward, blue-eyed wolf-witch and a woman who can make his dreams come true.
