Cursed to bear 12 sets of twins in 12 years by 12 different men? That is twenty-year-old innocent Adara Lane’s terrible fate until a reluctant warlock steps in, altering one significant part of the spell, thus creating a new destiny for both of them. Like the heroic knight from her childhood fairy tales, he rescues her at the moment the spell is manifested. While she’s grateful for his help, being bound to an overbearing, controlling, potentially violent man who may never love her, who despises what she is? Well...forgive Adara if she believes she would be better off had he just minded his own business and left the rescuing to someone else. But, this troubled knight-in-tarnished armor seems to need Adara as much as she needs him.
Bowie Marston knows he’s damaged goods. Home from a tour of duty in Vietnam, suffering shell shock, the young man discovers his family destroyed because he wasn’t in L.A. to protect them. After witnessing the senseless deaths of his comrades overseas, the death of his parents only deepens his disenchantment with the world. Blaming his parents’ murder-suicide on their involvement in magick, Bo vows to never use his own latent powers. It’s too late to rescue his family. On the other hand, it’s not too late to rescue a beautiful, young woman caught up in a web of danger. Knowing what he does about witchcraft, can he involve himself in a spell that spans a lifetime, a spell that ties him evermore to a powerful witch...and all her bless’ed offspring? Can he resist?

About the Author
Selene believes in two true things: love and the power of stories. Everything else is up for debate.
First and foremost, she's been an avid reader her entire life. True story. In high school, her English teacher told Selene that she was also going to be a high school English teacher (probably because she actually read the assigned novels). Horrified by this prediction (think about it--eternity in high school?!), she fled home for university. She did her best to make it a permanent stay--changing majors back and forth multiple times, completing classes that had nothing to do with any of those majors, transferring to new colleges several times--eventually earning more than double the credits required for a BA in English. She promptly enrolled in grad school, where she managed to stretch a two-year masters program into a four-year MA in Creative Writing. Then, her beloved university life kicked her to the metaphorical street and told her to GET A REAL JOB!
Selene currently teaches English to the brightest public high school honors students in the land. Mrs. Unkenholz was right.
Oh yeah, and Selene writes. Romances to be specific.
Like the HEAs of her novels, her love life has a happy ending. She's married to a seriously romantic guy (he's Scottish, folks), travels abroad every summer, and drives a reliable American-built foreign car. The family cats keep the mice away. Life is simple, but good.
She lives in sunny Southern California, but remains a snowy Midwestern girl at heart.
Selene can be reached online at selenegracesilver.com, on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads. She loves to hear from readers.

The setting: Los Angeles, 1970’s Alone in the world after her grandmother’s death, Adara finds herself drawn into a cult ritual of witches and warlocks on the eve of Samhain, where, as it turns out, she is fated to be the main attraction in an orgiastic mating ceremony. A reluctant warlock, Bowie is a Vietnam vet who attends the ceremony only to protect his sister. He thinks! What but how can he stand by when the pretty girl who’s intrigued him all evening finds herself in danger? Adara and Bowie, along with Bowie’s sister Brianna and her cop lover, find themselves facing a nameless group of unscrupulous cult members seeking to use them to accomplish their evil plans. What to do? Who to trust? How does Adara’s mysterious past fit into this scenario? And is this attraction between Adara and Bo real or the result of a Halloween night spell? It’s a rare talent for an author to create alpha males as well as strong females who can not only manage them, but also combine with them to make one powerful duo. And that’s what Ms. Silver has done here, not only with Adara and Bo, but also with Brianna and Jack from Brianna’s Bewitching. The sexual attraction between them is immediate and compelling, but the emotional angle requires trust, and that’s not so easy when you’re suddenly thrust into a dangerous world of magick and goddesses and hidden agendas. A happy ending is an exception rather than the rule in this paranormal world, and while they are allies now, there’s no guarantee they’ll be together in the end.
I was really excited when Ms. Silver asked if I wanted to review this book since I had loved Brianna’s Bewitching so much. I couldn’t wait to start reading this book because of a couple reasons. Reason 1: I wanted to find out how Brianna and Jack were doing, and I was so excited that they still had a very important role in this book! Reason 2: The blurb got me. Plain and simple, when I read the blurb I knew that I had to read this story. I was really pleased with how the story played out; I do believe that Ms. Silver did a great job at keeping the excitement and suspense going throughout the story. Even the smutty scenes that took place where done with elegance and class, they were not crude in the slightest. The characters were really well written and detailed. There wasn’t anything that I was left hoping for when it came to them. There is a ton of action that happens in this book, and some of it kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. I do believe that Ms. Silver did a great job at keeping me drawn into the story, but still left me wanting for more. The one thing that I am a bit upset about, hence why it’s not a 5 star read from me, is that I didn’t realize that there would be somewhat of a cliffhanger in the story. It’s not an insane one by any means, I just had a few questions that were left unanswered but I’m hoping that with the next book, those will all be told. Overall, I completely loved this story and I really can’t wait for the next book to be released! *Copy provided for review* Reviewed by Crystal Marie for Crystal's Many Reviewers
