Fiera was born a sea witch with no inkling of her power. And now it might be too late.
Witch of the Cards is historical, supernatural romantic suspense set in 1932 on the Jersey shore. Twenty-two year-old Fiera has left the Brooklyn orphanage where she was raised, and works in Manhattan as a nanny. She gets a lucky break when her boss pays for her vacation in Asbury Park. One evening, Fiera and her friend Dulcie wander down the boardwalk and into Peter Dune's Tarot & Séance, where they attend a card reading.
Fiera has an unsettling ability to know things before they happen and sense people's hidden agendas. She longs to either find out the origin of her powers or else banish them because as is, they make her feel crazy. When, during the reading, her energies bond with Peter Dune's and form an undeniable ethereal force, a chain of revelations and dangerous events unspools. For one, Fiera finds out she is a witch from a powerful sea clan, but that someone is out to stop her blossoming power forever.
And though she is falling in love with Peter, he also has a secret side. He's no card reader, but a private detective working to expose mediums. Despite this terrible betrayal, Fiera must make the choice to save Peter from a tragic cruise boat fire, or let him perish with his fellow investigators. Told in alternating viewpoints, we hear Fiera and Peter each struggle against their deep attraction. Secrets, lies, even murder, lace this historical fantasy. Around 230 pages.
