The beautiful but lonely owner of a bath and body shop, Krista Winter is in need of legal counsel. Her past is about to catch up with her. She was forced to flee from her life as a teacher in New Jersey after being shunned for being a witch.
Life is not the same for Jon Bartolo. He’s a dedicated lawyer, living in the town of Conway, New Hampshire. His days are spent helping his clients with their struggles and his nights are spent in agony, lost in a world between life and death.
His mother, who died three years ago, lurks in his house, suffering from a curse for eternity, without a resting place.
A smoldering fire between Jon and Krista ignites almost immediately, however, he’s sure his secret would frighten a woman away. An afternoon escape brings them closer, but doubts linger between the love-struck couple.
How will Jon’s mother find eternal rest so he can move on with his life? Is he bound to a life of hell on earth?
Will Krista fit into his world when he learns about her past? Is she hiding a bigger secret? How is it possible for them to open their hearts to love? Could a touch of Night Magic be just what this couple needs?

In minutes, he’d arranged the food and added the wine glasses. After he poured the wine, he handed her a glass.
“Thank you. Everything looks delicious.”
“To a fresh start,” he said.
