Witch – Warlock
QUOTE: If only casting a spell on a man was as simple as it sounded. Not to fall in love…but to send him hurling off the edge of the earth. ~ Willow
HEROINE: Willow Davies
HERO: Cedric Stone
A bet between Eros, the God of love & desire, and Chloe (Chlotho), the Fate of birth, leads to a year filled with match-making and passion.
She’s a witch looking for the love of her life…
Willow Davies is pinning all of her hopes on the Summer Solstice Celebration. She calls to the Goddess Aphrodite in the light of the moon to help find the love of her life, the man who is meant to complete her heart and soul, and Aphrodite answers. But Aphrodite warns that love can be surprising and by the Gods she meant it.
He’s the warlock she’s always seen as her nemesis…
Cedric Stone is ready to claim Willow as the love of his life, except she still considers him the enemy. They’ve known each other all of their lives and after a blind date gone horribly wrong, thanks to him, he realizes he’s in love with her. It’s his good fortune when he shows up on her doorstep and sees her wearing an enchanted moonstone, a gem known to be worn by those looking for love. It’s the perfect way into her life.
What happens when he becomes the one she can’t live without?
As the days go by and they spend more and more time together, Willow begins to wonder how much of Cedric’s attention is because he truly is in love with her or because she’s wearing an enchanted moonstone.
NOTE: Mystic Zodiac is a 12 book series. It is NOT a serial. Each book ends in a happily ever after for the main couple. However, the prologue and epilogue of each story follows the Gods that kick off the series, Eros and Chlotho (aka Chloe). At the end of the series the bet between the two will come to a conclusion.
Jun 1st – Monday
Willow looked around her backyard and wondered, for the millionth time, if what she was about to do was actually a good idea…or not. It was the middle of the night, and she stood under the waxing moon in nothing but a thin, sheer red robe about to invoke the Goddess Aphrodite to help her in her plight.
If she intended to find the love of her life, she needed the help of a much higher power. Nothing she’d done over the last several years had worked. Going to bars. Hitting the clubs. Finding men at solstice celebrations or coven gatherings. She’d even gone the blind date route, allowing family and friends to set her up. The only things she had gained from the experience were how to deal with disappointment and rejection. The men, family and friends had set her up with, were complete duds.
One guy she’d gone on a blind date with asked her where she’d parked her broom, and just ten minutes after they sat down and their food was ordered. It was one stereotypical quip after another from him. She left midway through dinner, having had enough, and went home to cleanse her aura.
Another date asked her to chain him up and treat him like a sexual sacrifice. She’d called her cousin Autumn, as she sat across from him, and told her she’d found the man of her dreams. Autumn rushed over and snatched him up. They were married a week later.
The most recent disaster happened a couple of weeks ago, and involved a shifter whose name she couldn’t even remember. She met him for lunch and was promptly told he wasn’t interested in her, would never date someone like her, but would love her help finding his mate. With each painful word the shifter spouted, she turned a deeper shade of red; her embarrassment skyrocketing until she wanted to slide under the table and pray no one found her…ever.
She discovered that her childhood nemesis, Cedric, had told the man she could cast a locator spell to find his destined mate. She could, but she wouldn’t. Why reward a man when he could have come to her directly and asked, instead of feigning interest in her?
Knowing Cedric was behind the faux date explained his appearance seconds after she stepped through the door of the café, and why he watched the entire uncomfortable episode. She was a pawn for his amusement, once again.
It really was a pity she couldn’t have hexed the bastard when the shifter told her Cedric was the one who told him to ask her out. But witches were forbidden from using spells on Witch and Warlock kind. Not that it didn’t happen, though. In fact, it occurred a lot more than a person would think. She just preferred to play by the rules.
