About the author:
J. R. White has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. After her marriage in 2008 she found the freedom to dive headfirst into her personal world of fiction. Currently she lives in the Upstate of South Carolina with her family, where she fills her daughter’s head with fairy tales.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Magic Town was a dingy maze of alleyways tucked away in a section of Atlanta that never made it to the travel guides. It was crawling with some of the lowest members of society and if a person had to be honest it also had quite a few members of high society slinking around from time to time. It was a place that Meredith Blackburn despised venturing into. After four nights of searching questionable bars and occult shops, the young witch found herself standing in front of a small Chinese shop called Heavenly Herbs. Flexing her fingers, she could feel the flow of magic in her veins cycling painfully slow and it only reminded her how important it was for her to find the man she was looking for.
Meredith despised the man just as much as the area she knew she would find him in. Malcolm Blackwood was one of those high-society brats who had slunk down to Magic Town after displeasing his family. At least Meredith liked to think that he slunk, but entered with a cocky stride would fit his character more. Malcolm had been the second-son playboy that every family dreaded, but for some reason he held a type of charm that made everyone want to be near him. For all her detest of the man, Meredith was no different. Just like every other woman, she’d been drawn to him too.
But the Blackburns and the Blackwoods had been at each other’s throats for more than a millennium. It was family bickering left over from their roots in the old country, and that left little room for feelings besides distrust. So Meredith ignored the attraction and focused on the man’s arrogant attitude.
Nonetheless, he was one of the best magical trackers on the East Coast, and that was what she needed.
