A week and half ago, I lost it. My roof (that I’d just gotten fixed two weeks before) started leaking again. My son noticed that water was also leaking out of our refrigerator. The reason: the ice was melting because the temperature in the freezer section was 50 degrees. By the time I got home from my day job, the temperature inside the refrigerator was the same as the rest of the kitchen despite the appliance running constantly. I had twenty people coming to my house for a party. And I had a miserable cold.
All I wanted to do was curl up and cry. Instead, I went to Home Depot to order another refrigerator. Unfortunately, they couldn’t deliver it for over a week. So, for over a week (including the big party day), I survived with only a mini-fridge…and a cooler with a lot of ice.
The moment Monica Smic realized Dex Seer was her soul mate, her life didn’t go as planned either. (Read the scene for free here.)
Dex Seer has spent his life on the wrong side of the law, working for anyone who will pay him enough to afford the medicine his sister needs to keep from going blind. But the medicine no longer exists. In desperation, he books a stay at the Wiccan Haus to heal his sister. With a sexy government spy following him through the portal, he stands to lose everything he’s spent his life protecting.
After too many years reading the evil, sadistic thoughts of her government’s enemies, Monica Smic is exhausted and cynical. Worse, her soul discovered its mate in a lawless bounty hunter, and staying away from him is destroying her from the inside out. When she passes out on the job, her boss forces her to take a week off at the Wiccan Haus to get her act together.
Despite their mutual distrust, the more time Dex and Monica spend in each other’s company, the more their battered souls find solace in the other’s. But Dex’s first loyalty is to his sister, and Monica’s is to her government. On the Winter Solstice, they will either heal each other or lose everything in winter’s fiercest storm.
For the record, I now have a fabulous new refrigerator, my cold is gone, and my roof only leaks when it rains…
