Banished to the town of Big Knob, Indiana, for mischievous matchmaking with their magic, Dorcas and Ambrose Lowell are being forced into helping George, the poker playing dragon. Until George is convinced to cooperate, the Lowell’s are stuck there, but they’re not going to sit by idly and wait when there’s plenty of matchmaking to be done in Big Knob. When Sean drops by to look at a possible carpentry job they have for him, they’re off and running on their first client in need of help in their love life.

Sean Madigan is tired of being the object of women’s lustful fantasies, so when Dorcas and Ambrose offer him the opportunity to stop the women chasing him down for dates; he’s more than happy to try. As a carpenter with his skills in renovating, he’s interested in purchasing his old family home and restoring it to its former glory. When Maggie comes to town wanting to buy the same property, Sean is back at the Lowell’s begging to be his former self. According to Dorcas and Ambrose he’ll have to wait for the potion to wear off, so now he’s stuck trying to charm Maggie out of the house and into bed without the benefit of his good looks and usual charisma. Sean’s finding out just how hard the average Joe has it when it comes to wooing women.

Over Hexed is a magical and all-around fun romance. Dorcas and Ambrose plan to make the most of their stay in Big Knob, and finding Sean his soul mate is just the thing to pass the time. With her wonderful talent of lighthearted humor, Vicki Lewis Thompson pens an enchanting tale for her amorous characters, steeping it in magic and enough passion to scorch the pages. The laughs start on page one and will have fans anxiously awaiting the next installment in this delightful new series.
