Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who's been renovating her mansion for months?

Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it's Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons.

Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?


My Review:
I'm enjoying this Sleepy Hollow series from Taryn Kincaid. The books all have a touch of magic that really make them fun to read, but you don't get lost in all the details of the magic. 

For this book, the heroine is a witch. She's the widow of an elderly sorcerer whom she truly loved, but they never had a true husband/wife relationship. But since his death, she's been floundering a bit. She decided it would help to redo the mansion he left her and Sean with his architect brother Campbell (hero from story #1) have been in charge of the construction. Sean is sexy and tough and Veronica is definitely drawn to him. When her house continues to scare her at night, she calls him to help. For his part, Sean has been trying to keep his distance from their sexy, vulnerable client, but on one stormy night, he just can't resist any longer. It's hard to resist when Madame Eve's own special match-making magic is present too. 

I liked this one. I like the relationship between the two brothers and how Campbell is pushing Sean toward Veronica. He sees the attraction between them. Veronica was a little bit more mysterious with the witchcraft and her dead husband, but I still really liked her. My one complaint with this book is that this was definitely a case of insta-love which went from 0 to 60 way, way too quickly (for my taste). But overall, it was definitely a fun and sexy read!

All this week, Decadent is celebrating the birthday of their 1NS imprint. I will be hostessing and reviewing 1NS books all week long, too. Join in the celebration!
