NEW RELEASE ALERT! Freya's Spell - Kathleen Ann Gallagher

I’m so excited to announce my latest release. Freya’s Spell is a short erotic romance. It’s part of the weekend getaway line for Secret Cravings Publishing.  

Witchcraft, fairies, and all things magical have always fascinated me. My father was a professional magician, and I was one of his assistants. He used beautiful white doves in his act. It amazed me how they added something special to the show. My favorite illusion was the levitation act. Dad raised my older sister up in the air, and she appeared to be floating. He used a gold hoop to show there was nothing attached to her. I never got a chance to be the helper on that one, even thought I begged. At the time, I wasn’t tall enough.

My story takes place in The White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. My husband and I visit the area in the fall around peak foliage time. One night while sitting around the campfire, I got the idea for Freya’s Spell. There was something intriguing about staring into the fire pit. The pentagram worn by witches signifies the five elements, fire, water, earth, air, and spirit. My father used to tell me that a person must surrender to the universe to enjoy his illusions. If they tried to figure out the trick the thrill of it was lost. 

My heroine Freya Meyer lives in an attic apartment in Bartlett, New Hampshire. She longs for a man who can love her the way she deserves to be loved. The full moon is coming, and what happens next is bound to make her spirit soar.  

BLURB

The passionate, sex-starved witch, Freya Meyer is tired of wasting time with unsatisfying lovers. She’s in search of a man who can keep up with her.  Prospects are slim in Bartlett, the sleepy little town in the White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. 

A sultry stranger with a French accent behind the counter at the Country Store is new to town. Family commitment and an unsettled past leads Paul Marton back to his childhood roots. On the rebound from a scandalous romance, Paul tries to ignore Freya’s advances, and he doesn’t let on how he falls prey to her seductive ways.

When Paul ignores her advances, Freya knows what she must do. A love spell is bound to cast the shy stranger straight into her arms. With the help of the full moon, Freya’s wishes may come to fruition. Can a lonely witch capture one night with her dream lover… walk away, and never look back? Is there a way to tame a wild witch’s heart?


 EXCERPT

Freya watched Paul as he strutted down the stairs and slowly ran her tongue around her lips. One look at his broad shoulders and thick thighs made her mouth water. I can hardly stand it.
Paul returned from downstairs and she noticed his penetrating stare.
“Come upstairs to my place and I’ll pay you.”
“Thank you. Do you want me to bring the other items up there?”
“No, you can leave them here. I’ll take care of it” You’ll need all the energy you can get. Freya could sense his eyes follow her every move as she led the way. Happy she wore a thong, she escorted her dream man upstairs to her apartment.
Once inside, she closed the door and fastened the double lock. “Sit down for a minute while I get my wallet.”
Freya pointed to an upholstered, floral sofa, with red velvet throw pillows. Instead of a door, colored beads separated the living room from the bedroom.
“This place is great. I don’t recall it being here.”
“Thank you,” she responded. “It’s my little hideaway.”
“I’ve never seen it and I lived in town for years.” He ran his hand through his hair and smiled. “I’m back to help at my mother’s store.”
“Oh, I see. That’s why I never saw you before.”
Freya’s mind raced with visions of how he would look without a shirt. “I’ve been here a few years. There’s a little rooftop space for entertaining outside.”
“You did a great job of decorating in here.” He ran his hand over the luxurious velvet pillow. His gaze fixed on her. His legs spread sending shivers down her spine.
Freya felt the heat between her thighs. The sexual tension took over her entire body. “I’ll be right back.”
