To-do: Stop the bad guys. Rescue the wizard. Find the perfect outfit for New Years Eve.
At last, Owen Palmer, the dreamboat wizard at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has conjured up the courage to get Katie Chandler under the mistletoe at the office holiday party. But just when it looks like Katie has found her prince, in pops her inept fairy godmother, Ethelinda, to throw a wand into the works. Ethelindas timing couldnt be worse. A plot hatched by MSIs rogue ex-employees, Idris and his evil fairy gal pal Ari, threatens to expose the companys secretsand the very existence of magic itself. Even worse, it could also mean the end of Katies happily-ever-after.
Now Katie and Owen must work side by side (but alas, not cheek to cheek) to thwart the villains plans. Braving black-magic-wielding sorceresses, subway-dwelling dragons, lovelorn frog princes, and even the dreaded trip to meet Owens parents at Christmas, Katie and her beau are in a battle to beat Idris at his own sinister game. All mischief and matters of the heart will come to a head at a big New Years Eve gala, when the crystal ball will drop, champagne will pour, and Katie will find herself truly spellbound.Praise for Shanna Swendsons Once Upon Stilettos
Magical and totally delightful . . . [a] quirky, lighthearted romance.
A fast and funny read. Chicklit meets urban fantasy.
