Peek Inside Protecting His Witch

Despite her telepathy and the uncontrolled “dimension-hopping,” Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Then she accidentally hops into the next world and runs into her seriously hot one-night stand from years ago. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten Kat...or the curse she gave him. Her unexpected return means finally breaking the hex. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas, like how to get her back into his bed once last time. And worse yet, he suspects that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Now he'll have to protect the woman who made his life hell...

The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch…

Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn’t a clue that she’s a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there’s the whole “dimension-hopping” issue that she can’t quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld and runs into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.

And there’s the tiny matter of the curse she gave him. May you never find satisfaction with another woman.

Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn’t forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat’s unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he’s turned his back on his druidic ways, he’s still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell.

Witches, druids and curses, that’s what’s in store for you if you read this book. I should say curse, as there is only one, but it’s a doozy. Of course there’s also plenty of romance.

About the author

Zoe Forward

Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can't decide between paranormal and contemporary romance. So she writes both. In addition to being a mom to one rambunctious kindergartner and wife to a conservation ecologist who plans to save all the big cats on the planet, she's a small animal veterinarian caring for all the small furries, although there has been the occasional hermit crab. When she's not typing at her laptop she's tying on a karate belt for her son or cleaning up the newest pet mess form the menagerie that occupies her house. She's madly in love with her globe trotting husband and happiest when he returns to their home base in North Carolina.
