After a torrid love affair, shady businessman Delmar Devereaux disappeared from Tiara Blake’s life, leaving her to raise their twin sons on her own. So, when he shows up unannounced one day, her first instinct is to kick him to the curb.
But Delmar has discovered a century-old curse placed on the pair by their ancestors—and he needs Tiara’s help to break it. Ending the curse means they will have to learn to trust each other, which won’t be easy when their explosive secrets are revealed.
Once again torn between lust and duty, can Delmar and Tiara discover the true meaning of love in order to break the curse before it’s too late? Or will their complicated past doom them forever?
Join Delmar and Tiara as they go on a sensually sizzling action-packed quest to discover if it’s true, you only get one love in a lifetime!
Can a quest to break an ancient curse give two former lovers a second chance?
“In a manner of speaking, you are both correct,” Delmar replied. “Like I said earlier, there are ways around things. There are “those” who know things. And when I went looking for help, I went to the best.”“If you used the best, then why are you here?” Consuelo asked.
Delmar hovering image gave her enigmatic smile. He took a deep breath and his voice softened. “What I failed to realize is …” He hesitated and looked up. “Do you believe in past lives?”
Glenda looked back at Nona and Consuelo. The three of them smiled.
“Of course, we do,” Glenda answered for the three of them.
Nona spoke up. “It is a known fact, among us, we believe, in each life, we are here seeking the companions of our past, who come into this life to play, an important role in the life that we live, now.”
“This cycle can go on many lifetimes,” Consuelo added, with a heavy Spanish accent.
“I agree with the three of you,” Delmar replied. “I’ve recently learned of my connection to a young woman, in a past life,” he said caressing the line of his jaw. “I… I Didn’t realize how important it was for us to meet in this life. And now that I know…”
“Oh, my goodness!” Nona interrupted him. “Let me guess, she is the mother of the twins. The sons, you denied being the father of in a court of law.”
“And the DNA test has excluded you and now you want to turn back the clock,” Consuelo stated, in a prevalent Spanish accent.
“Ladies,” Glenda said. “Let Delmar finish telling us his story.”
“But we have the story,” Nona said.
“No,” Glenda interrupted. “We do not have the full story. Do we Delmar?”
“Bad things happened,” Consuelo said, in a heavy Spanish accent. “I can feel it.”
Delmar took a deep breath. “You see, I traveled to see the best performer of magic in the state of California, she lives in the enchanted forest in Elfin.”
Nona shook her head in disbelief. “Oh, my God! You mean, Elfin Forest, in Escondido? Why she’s the most powerful white witch of them all!”
“You went to see Mary?” Consuelo gasped.
“You consulted with the White Witch of Elfin Forest?” Glenda D’Goodwrench yelled. “And you have the gall to ask the help of a descendant of Marie Laveau, and the great family of the Oshun of Santería Cuba?”
“You left out your great family heritage, Glenda. The D’Goodwrench family has long been practicing white magic in this great state of California,” Nona added.
Delmar’s eyes widen. “So, are you ladies telling me you cannot handle a minor spell cast by an old dead legend from California’s mining days?” He asked rolling his eyes, looking disgusted. “And, here I thought I was seeking the help of the best and the brightest and you three are nothing but a bunch of losers…”
“Shut-up Delmar!” Glenda’s bellowing voice interrupted him, as her eyes filled with rage. “We will not be insulted by the likes of you!” She spat twice, and her cat Pinky appeared out of nowhere and jumped into her arms, as Consuelo and Nona moved in closer to her. A thick blanket of fog rolled out of nowhere and surround them.
Then they vanished into thin air.
“Ladies… Ladies! I apologize!” Delmar yelled as the vapor that was his frame slowly dissipated.
