In 1880, the evil warlock Blake Wolcott threatens the serenity of Creekford, Massachusetts, a town that allows Crafters to reside in peace. The newly arrived Blake has taken control of the town, making all decisions and eliminating by any means non-witches and any opposition to his reign of terror. Blake plans to deplete the town's witches of their power to supplement his own and to marry the one witch, which will turn him into an unstoppable dynamo. The only hope to save the town is for Hannah Lowell to travel to Wyoming to find, marry, and return with the powerful warlock, The Mackenzie.
Jonas Mackenzie, a rancher, is the hereditary head of the Crafter's Guild. Only he, with Hannah at his side, can hope to stop the evil Blake. When Hannah arrives, she finds a formidable barrier in that Jonas rejects the notion of supernatural powers. He also struggles with his attraction to his wacky visitor, who begins to melt the ten-year-old iceberg that keeps his heart frozen. Even if he goes east, the odds favor evil over the inexperienced Wyoming warlock. However, we all know that love is the most powerful weapon of them all to defeat evil.
WISH UPON A COWBOY is simply a magical historical paranormal romance that works because the audience will believe in the forces that the witches and warlocks generate. The story line combines the otherworldly elements into a wonderful Americana tale. The prime duo is an intriguing couple mostly because Jonas does not know whether to hug his soul mate or call for the straitjacket crowd. Kathleen Kane weaves an intelligent novel that leaves the audience dreaming of collecting and keeping the previous novel from this spell casting author.
