This Novella is currently out of print but will soon find a new home.
Isabella Barton, flees from her ex-fiancé after uncovering his ties with the Russian Mafia and his willingness to bargain her body for business.
Hiding out at her childhood home in Rhode Island, Isabella discovers an ancient book of witchcraft in the basement. With nothing to lose, she attempts the spell for “True Love” that insists on flipping open in front of her.
Zachariah, never expected to be hurtled into the future, ripped from the land of his birth and awaken on a strange beach with a beautiful red-haired, violet-eyed vixen. And, the only thing that can restore him to his other dimensional world is missing—his amulet.
Love and betrayal follow these two lost souls on a sensual and dangerous journey to discover not only long ago secrets, but their own destinies.
Isabella Barton is engaged to a
diabolical man. Not wishing to be with him any longer, she heads to her
grandmother’s mansion where she learns her grandmother was a witch and left a
Isabella's fiance, Ivan Sergeyev, is handsome and educated and the right hand of the Russian mafia boss in the States. He owns a chain of five-star hotels, a great way to launder money. Isabella grows tired of the way Ivan conducts business. She thought she loved him but he abused her trust. Ivan sets up a dinner engagement with Vladimir Chevtsov and leaves special instructions with Vladimir that Isabella is to be extremely nice. Isabella refuses to be sold as a harlot and runs away to the two-hundred-year-old mansion her grandmother left her.
When Isabella comes upon a spell that promises a man she can trust with unconditional love, she gives it a try.
Zacharias is the First Sorcerer to the King of Loche Cress. One thing he never expected was being thrown into the future, literally snatched from the land he was born. Zac was in the middle of a battle when the next thing he remembered was blackness. When he wakes, he is unfamiliar with his whereabouts. He knows he is not in the King’s year 1157.
Being with Isabella has changed him. After losing his wife, he thought he would never love again until he met Isabella.
But complications arise not only with the Story Mage but Ivan when he comes for Isabella.I liked Moonlight Spell. Julie A. D’Arcy not only creates believable characters but she pits them in situations that make the reader wonder if they will ever resolve the matters that surface. Here Isabella has finally found the courage to escape Ivan, when she encounters the Story Mage, who has his own little devises to make Isabella’s life a bit more problematical. This compelling story really grabbed this reader.
