A cursed witch unable to use her powers. A shifter who's lived this long by keeping to himself. A choice to save her—or himself.

Circe is a witch. Everyone says so. Her powers have yet to manifest, but even if they did, an ancient curse prohibits her from using them. She's also an orphan, and the coven who raised her reminds her of both every day. Lest she fall in love and very bad things will follow.

Yearning for a break from the coven's rituals and meddling, Circe strikes out on her own in Havenwood Falls, far away from the constant reminders that someone wants her blood.

Evan is that someone. He's a shifter—a truth he's hidden his entire existence, and the single reason a council of mages hired him. And now, thanks to an unfortunate and binding deal, Evan has been charged with locating Circe. He should have dealt with her ages ago, but he keeps finding excuses not to. And it's not only that he doesn't trust the council's motives, or that he has no interest in kidnapping an innocent girl.

This job is all he needs to resolve his bargain, yet Evan can't seem to follow through.

When the council tires of waiting, they take matters into their own hands. And Evan must decide: step out of the shadows to save her, or keep his own skin.

Welcome to the secluded mountain town of Havenwood Falls, home to sexy men, strong women, and neighbors who bite. Discover supernatural mystery, thrills, and romance in a place where everyone has a deep, dark, and often deadly secret.

Circe is just trying to adjust to her new life in Havenwood Falls, while far from her loving over protective aunts. Evan has been hired to do a job, that he isn't sure he really wants to complete. With them being in Havenwood Falls things are not always as they appear. I really enjoyed watching Circe develop over this book, hoping to see more of her in the future.

This series keeps giving!!! Toil & Trouble is a Novella by Melissa Wright. I have to admit that I wasn't sure about several authors writing with a cohesive vision of a complex and diverse setting like this series, but I'm blown away with each installment. Each novella is stand alone and builds one every other story and characters. With each novella, I can't wait to read more and find out more of the hidden secrets that are so a part of this world. This Novella is an addition to the Tells the story of Circe a Witch without powers and Evan a cursed shifter, who is tasked with kidnapping her in exchange for his freedom. Circe simply wants to have a life of her own and settle in our very own Havenwood Falls, but it doesn't take long before she finds herself a target. Evan, has watched Circe and doesn't see the evil, all-powerful witch that he was warned about, and it gives him pause. Does he do what he's been ordered to do or does he give into to his growing feelings for Circe and do whatever he can to protect her??? Definitely read to find out!!! You won't regret it!!!
