LOVE CURSED by Leisl Leighton
A love across time, cursed to stay apart …
Coven librarian, Juliana Stevens, jokes about being cursed at love. When an old diary that speaks of an ancient Love Curse is found, she realises it isn’t a joke. To break the hex she must uncover a secret spell and travel to Rome to be in the exact spot with her unknown soul mate by midnight on Valentine’s Day, or her soul will be doomed forever. No pressure – but it’s going to be Happy Never After if she can’t.
BAD VALENTINE BATCH by Marnie St Clair
Avery Lloyd does not like being a witch – it’s all rules and hard work. She also hates dogs. As in, really hates dogs. So when her boss Alec insists she attend the Valentine’s Day charity event at the lost dogs’ shelter, Avery casts an unlawful spell to get out of it. But something’s not quite right about this batch of magic, and before she knows it, Avery has ruined Alec’s life. She has until Valentine’s Day to fix it, or the damage will be permanent.
CATNIP by Samantha Marshall
For reclusive dragon Oaklyn Airecross, spending Valentine’s Day with a stack of book boyfriends and chocolate mousse sounds like heaven – until an uninvited guest picks a fight with a bean bag, and she’s thrust bodily into a mess of runaway cats, vampire intrigue and frypans. In order to reclaim the Valentine’s Day of her dreams, Oaklyn must set aside her preconceived notions on true love, the perfect man, and exactly what that bulge might be when it twitches inside of his pants.
FILIGREE AND FATE by Helen Lucy Howe
Famous fae-artist, Zhulija, is asked to create decorations for a wedding, but things don’t go according to plan. Infamous unseelie, Dario Eribifax, after recognizing his ‘true mate,’ appoints himself her personal assistant in an effort to convince her of their fated connection. What could possibly go wrong?
A BROOMSTICK BREW by Georgia Tingley
When Wysper uses a ‘love potion’ on Valentine’s Day to make the man of her dreams fall in love, things take a turn for the worse. She finds herself falling for everyone she looks at. A hilarious witchcraft backfire!
