What’s one little spell?

When you’re new to magic, one spell can be the difference between getting what you want...and ruining the lives of everyone you love.

Sixteen-year-old Madison has just embraced her magical powers. The trick now is learning how to control them. She and her boyfriend -and fellow witch- can’t even enjoy a simple kiss without getting shocked when their powers collide. Instead of mastering her new skills, though, Madison is stuck watching her kid brother and doing chores.

But being a witch does have its benefits. With a simple spell, Madison instantly conjures the help she needs around the house. Or so she thinks. Her idea of “help” invites trouble of its own as a pair of dangerous yet enticing beings enter her life. When a classmate disappears soon afterwards, Madison discovers she's the next victim of a threat she's powerless to resist...and there’s nothing it won’t kill to make her surrender.

Caught in the crossfire between two dashing but deadly creatures, Madison must figure out which one to trust and how to rid her world of the other—before one of them destroys her and everyone she cares about.

Embrace didn’t start out as a series, but I’m thrilled that it has grown into one. I had originally wrote book one to be a standalone novel about a girl who discovers powers in the world—powers she’d have to embrace in order to save her friends. But as I was writing Embrace I started to see what the immediate future would bring for Madison. She and Isaac would have to work past their magic colliding if they hoped to have a relationship, Madison would face new, more dangerous, supernatural threats, and I knew this time she’d risk losing someone very special to her—someone even dearer than her best friend Kaylee. Snippets of Madison’s future flittered through my thoughts as I created Isaac’s room—from the circular walls to the iron fixtures—it all had purpose, some of which is explained in book one. (I love being able to say book one, book two. )

Since Madison’s world was too complex to include everything in one book, Embrace focused on the Powers and the immediate threat to Madison and her friends. Everything else remained hidden in the background. Then the most wonderful thing happened. Readers asked if there’d be another book. They wanted more of Madison, Isaac, Kaylee and Josh. I was thrilled and got to work on Hold Tight, which had its title before the first word had been written.

It was fun to be back with Madison and her friends, and since I already knew what Madison would face, writing the first draft was fairly easy. Giving names to my new characters was fun, and once again snippets of Madison’s future flittered through my thoughts. While I haven’t started on a third book, I have a good idea what happens next, what time of year it will be, and what the next supernatural creature to enter Madison’s life will be.
