Trying her best to mend a broken heart, Ivy Grace travels to hot and sultry New Orleans, the set of her latest novel turned movie. There, she does her best to focus on polishing up the screenplay when the film's lead actress goes missing. Throw in a budding romance with the movie's heartthrob and the reappearance of an old flame, and Ivy's strength, resolve, and heart are put to the test as she works to solve the mysterious kidnapping.
The undercover witch, who craves a regular life, learns she will need more than her Time Spell to fight the evil plaguing New Orleans. New spells, new adventure, and new love take Ivy on a whirlwind journey of magic that unlocks more questions than answers.
Whew! I didn’t remember New Orleans being this hot on my last trip. I pulled my shirt away from my chest and fanned myself. The sun scorched my skin. I looked around for a cold drink.
“Cut! Cut! Cut!” The director’s voice boomed overhead. “You’ve got this all wrong. Let’s take a break and start over in thirty minutes.” The mob holding lights, microphones, and fans scurried like ants in all directions.
I jumped up from my seat, and made a dash for the drink cart tucked under one of the few umbrellas on the set. I let my hand linger a little too long in the ice bucket of sodas.
“Darlin’, you need some help cooling off?” The deep sexy voice and Texas drawl ebbed over my ears like a slow wave.
Startled, I pulled my hand out of the ice bucket, and with it, a Diet Coke. I laughed. “Yes, you caught me. I didn’t know it was going to be so hot today.”
He laughed and reached in front of me to grab a water, his arm barely grazing my stomach. “I take it you’re not used to being on a movie set? We’re in for the long haul today, darlin’.” He twisted the cap off the water bottle and chugged the sixteen ounces.
I watched him wipe the water off his full lips. “That obvious? Yeah, it’s my first time. I’m Ivy. Ivy Grace.” I smiled at the tall actor who had me smitten about five movies ago.
“The writer? I know who you are. I was just waiting for the director to yell ‘cut’ so I could walk over and say howdy to you.” His perfectly white teeth peeked through his lips.
I was smitten just a little bit more. It was the combination of the Texas accent and the perfect-teeth smile. He had warm gray-green eyes that lit up when he smiled. I liked the way he paused between his words and wasn’t afraid to look into my eyes, even if we were only talking about the weather.
The sweat trickling down the back of my neck was my cue to step away from the drink cart and America’s heartthrob, and perform a quick outfit change.
“Well, it was nice to meet you, Evan.” I wiped the palm of my hand off on my hip and held it out to him.
His hand clasped around mine. “Nice to meet you, Ivy. Catch you around?”
“Of course, looking forward to it.”
