Once upon a time, a long, long time ago—Oh, who am I kidding?
My life is no fairy tale. Not since my Broadway career dried up. Like a year-old prune.
Once upon a time, I was the leading lady in many a fairy tale but now? Now I’m coming back and I’m not playing the sweet princess anymore.
I’m the Wicked Witch of the West and I’m making a comeback to prove nothing and no one can hold me down.
Not the illness that caused me to faceplant in the middle of a show two years ago and not the naysayers who are convinced I’m done.
There’s only one teeny, tiny problem. Someone is after me. Luckily, my problem has a simple solution: personal security. A round-the-clock bodyguard should do the trick. And if I get my way, he should be damn hot.
But when I meet him? It’s not the trick I want him to do—it’s me.
There’s something hauntingly familiar about him, and I just can’t shake the feeling that I know him. There’s only one other man who’s ever had this effect on me: my brother’s best friend from high school. And this boy is all grown up and giving me the serious feels.
Our chemistry is still off the charts and a new year is starting soon. Time to get my career back and score the hottie for a New Year’s kiss.
Let’s just hope neither of us drop the ball.
