Part of the Shadow Ridge series:
  • Running with the Devil

Expanded version! That's right! It's no longer a novella! It's longer!

Where Love, Magic, and Politics Spell Trouble

In the bewitching city of Shadow Ridge—once known as Chicago—Kerri Stewart isn't just any shop owner. She's a sassy, natural-born witch with a knack for potions and snark. But when her ex-husband Patrick O'Sullivan comes crashing back into her life, it's not just sparks that fly—it's full-on fireworks.

Patrick isn't just the guy who broke her heart into a million pieces. He's also a smoking-hot gubernatorial candidate with a killer smile, who also happens to be wanted for murder. Accused of a crime he swears he didn't commit, Patrick needs Kerri’s help to clear his name.

With a dash of magic, a sprinkle of Gen-X humor, and a cauldron full of smoldering tension, Kerri has to decide if she’s willing to put the past behind her and help stop this witch-hunt or if guarding her heart means more than proving Patrick’s innocence.
