Book Blast + Review + #Giveaway: Night Magic by Kathleen Ann Gallagher @Kathleenwrites @GoddessFish

Night Magic
Moonlight  & Jasmine Series #1
by Kathleen Ann Gallagher
GENRE: Contemporary Paranormal Romance


Krista Winter is in need of legal counsel. Several years ago she was forced to flee her life as a teacher in New Jersey after being shunned for practicing witchcraft, and her past is about to catch up with her.

Jon Bartolo is a dedicated attorney. His days are spent helping his clients with their struggles, and his nights are spent in agony, lost in a world between life and death. His mother, who died three years ago, lurks in his house, suffering from a curse for eternity, without a final resting place.

A smoldering fire ignites between Jon and Krista almost immediately, however, he’s sure his secret would frighten any woman away. An afternoon escape brings them closer, but doubts linger between the love-struck couple.

Burning questions about how to fuse their futures together with so much of their past still clouding the future becomes a heavy burden that they’re both trying to bear on their own. It will take a touch of magic if there’s any hope in sight.


Steadying herself, Krista stared into his eyes with her heart racing. As Jon moved in again and plunged his tongue deep into her mouth, he caressed her back, and she surrendered mercifully to his touch. Each passion-filled kiss felt as if he was a long lost lover who had reappeared and claimed her heart’s desire. There was no telling what might happen next. Her whole body relaxed as he nuzzled her ear, teasing her with playful nips at her neck. All rules had been broken, but it didn’t matter. His hard shaft rubbed up against her, and she swayed back and forth, unable to break away from temptation. Jon’s breathing sped up as his hands traveled up and down her back. She quietly moaned, lost in another world. Every movement brought her one step closer. Was she lonely enough to have sex with a man she’d just met? Each kiss weakened her guard. Maybe it was fate. As his hand trailed across her back, her body rocked with his. Each flicker of his tongue along the sides of her mouth was electrifying, as if he wanted to devour her, and she found herself in a trance-like state. This was what she’d been missing. Running her hand across his firm bicep, the room spun. The warmth of his body was raising her level of arousal. Here, in the middle of his office, she experienced a passion like no other. Everything seemed right. Lust took control of her senses, and she let herself go with it. With each kiss, he cradled her in his arms, his embrace warm and protective like a warrior of love. How did this happen? Had she found the man she was destined for, or was it all a dream?

My Review:

Krista Winter was forced to leave her life as teacher which she loved in New Jersey for being a witch. Krista fled to New Hampshire to start a new life and leave her old one behind. She opens a bath and body shop and her little shop is doing fairly well. At least well enough that her ex-fiancé wants a part of it. But Krista is not about to let him upset her life again so she goes to see a lawyer to get some legal advice.

She makes an appointment and goes to see Jon Bartolo. Jon like Krista has some secrets of his own. Jon and Krista hit it off right off the bat. It is love at first sight.

Jon’s mother has been dead for three years now but she is still living in Jon’s home/business. She is stuck between life and death. She is a zombie. But don’t worry she is not the biting kind. No she is more of the ghost variety. Jon wants to let his mother go but he doesn’t have much choice in this matter. Jon has been searching for a way to help his mother pass on to the next life but so far has had no luck.

He wants to be with Krista very much but he is afraid to tell her his secret. He is afraid that she will run away. He doesn’t know that Krista has some secrets of her own that she is afraid of telling.

Night Magic is a great little read it will keep you up at night only because you can’t put it down. It is a very short read if life doesn’t get in the way that is. I was just as hooked as Krista right from the first page. If you love a good romance book with witches and ghost/zombies thrown in then you are going to love Night Magic I know I did.
