Miranda Moon has been cursed. Ever since she had the misfortune to come in contact with a crude love spell, she's had one bad date after another. After lighting a man's hair on fire and ending up on a blind date with her cousin, she's ready to lose herself in the books she writes and live her life as a spinster... until Gideon Alexander, the one man she's always wanted, walks back into her life.

Gideon Alexander doesn't date. He's already found his one and lost her. But when he's asked to plan the Keating Hollow Christmas ball with his old friend Miranda Moon, suddenly he finds himself breaking his own rules. Maybe dating the sexy author is just what his scarred heart needs. The only problem? Miranda's curse has the potential to destroy their relationship before it ever begins.

I loved the story of Miranda and Gideon. They fell in love years ago in college and have been apart for 15 years when Gideon goes on a rare vacation to Keating Hollow. It's clear right away that they still love each other. As with all of Deanna Chase's books the characters are well written and developed. As always, I couldn't put this book down. I can't wait for the next book!! Or for any of Deanna's next books, to be honest.

Love this series, easy fun read with some drama and lots of romance. All the characters are great and have a part of the stories. This is about Miranda and an old love Gideon . It seems that Miranda is under a love spell that need to be broken. Voluntarily Reviewed

Not all curses are bad but when your date's hair catches on fire and your blind date is a relative--it's a bad one. So why would she take a chance on a date now with the man who'd broken her heart years ago? Miranda wrote PNR romances. One visit to the little town of Keating Hollow and she was in love--with the town. She's making friends and successfully writing when she gets some great news. At least it should have been. About the same time, Gideon shows up to visit. He wants to renew their "friendship" as if that is all it was. If she doesn't say okay it would look like she was still hung up on him. That's her excuse and she's sticking to it. There's plenty of shenanigans going on business-wise and personally. Will they keep the two apart or will old times become new times with a chance for a future. Or will the business connections ruin all chances for that future together?

Essence of the Witch by Deanna Chase is the eighth tale in the Witches of Keating Hollow series. Miranda Moon is a successful paranormal romance author living in Keating Hollow. While lucky in the work aspect of her life, she has been unlucky with her dates. They have been one disaster after another. The latest fellow ends up with his hair on fire and him rushing out to find the nearest salon (he’s a model). She is ready to give up on love when her Gideon Alexander arrives in town. He is the love of her life who got away. Gideon is taking a much needed vacation when he runs into Miranda. He has never forgotten her or gotten over her. Gideon extends his vacation when Miranda asks him to help her with the town’s Christmas ball. Is this their second chance or will bad luck continue to curse Miranda? Essence of the Witch is a magical tale. It can be read as a standalone, but why would you not want to read all the delightful stories in the Witches of Keating Hollow series. The chemistry between Miranda and Gideon is palpable. However, they need to deal with the past before they can move forward. I was happy to see some of the series regulars pop up in the story. It was nice to find out how Silas and Levi are getting along. I enjoy Deanna Chase’s engaging writing style which makes the book just fly by. Essence of the Witch deals with second chances, miscommunication, and misunderstandings. There are intimate situations and some foul language. I did appreciate that there was less of it in this edition and more creative phrases used instead. I enjoyed the sneak peek at the next which will feature Cameron and Wanda. It looks like it will be a humorous story. Essence of the Witch is a bewitching tale with glammed up golf carts, flirty fairies, gregarious girlfriends, a cheery Christmas celebration, swaying snowmen and an unpredicted proclamation.

Miranda and Gideon have a past, but when Gideon decides to vacation in Keating Hollow and runs into Miranda, both seem interested in picking up where they left off many years ago. Unfortunately, Miranda has terrible luck with dating, and disastrous things always seem to occur. She soon learns this curse is caused by a spell that had gone wrong. But even if the curse is lifted, can Gideon and Miranda really make a relationship work when they lead such different lives now? Miranda, an author in Keating Hollow, and Gideon, in the entertainment business in L.A... Love the Keating Hollow series! Each book is one whole story (you could technically read them as stand-alone novels, but I don't know why you would when they're all great!) and they always leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy. I look forward to reading the next one!

Wow! Loved Miranda & Gideon's story Miranda & Gideon are high school sweethearts until she writes a book about Gideon and it's a best seller. But only a few people know it was about her and Gideon, one of them being Gideon's father. Gideon ends up being in Keating Hollow on a sort of a vacation and discovers that Miranda is living there now. Miranda has a couple of dates and they happen to go badly...why? She actually set her dates hair on fire by accident...which isn't like her at all... Gideon is talked into helping with the annual Keating Hollow Christmas ball which Miranda is in charge. Sparks fly when the two of them get together... Does Miranda want to go down this path again? Especially with Gideon... Gideon has heard of Miranda's date dilemmas does he want to chance it? Will he get hurt as well? Miranda's book was bought by a movie studio and it may be turned into a movie... but the screenwriter for the production company has done the script wrong... Will Miranda's book be ruined by the screenwriter? Visiting Keating Hollow is always a blast. I laugh, I cry, and I go Awe! I love this series so much. I really want to live in Keating fictional place that has captured my heart! Thank you to Deanna Chase and Angie Ramey for allowing me to read a digital ARC of this book!
