When Jane Boyle falls in love with Malcolm Doran, she throws caution to the wind, quits her job, and plans to move to America from France to marry him. Her new life comes with some unexpected surprises, though.
Malcolm's family is a bit strange, to say the least. His mother, however, seems thrilled to be gaining a daughter-in-law, and she eagerly pulls Jane into plans for one of the biggest society weddings of the year. Unfortunately, Jane's humble country background does not prepare her for life as a New York socialite.
If living in a new country, with a new fiancé, and his very odd family is not enough, after finding her grandmother's dead body and a mysterious letter from that guardian, Jane has to come to terms with what the strange experiences she has had all her life really mean. She sees people that others don't; she hears voices that no one else does; she makes electronic devices go haywire.
A letter from her grandmother states it simply: she is a witch.
Jane does not have anyone to turn to for help, so when a young woman she meets at her new job befriends her, Jane is thrilled. But her adventures lead her to question the people she thought she could trust, and to wonder if marriage into the infamous Doran clan is the best idea.
Pierce's first novel is a fun paranormal romp that introduces humorous questions about who really runs New York's high society - and what the phrase "My mother-in-law is a witch" means when it's true! Readers will not only enjoy meeting Jane and her new friends, but they will look forward to the next book in the author's debut series.
*Note: Due to graphic sexual scenes and situations, this title is recommended for older and more mature readers.
