A single dad, scarred by the past…A witch who stands for all he despises…They’re sworn enemies, until a greater evil rises.
Jake doesn’t smile at strangers. He doesn’t stop to appreciate sunsets, or coo over fluffy puppies. Those small fleeting moments of happiness are reserved solely for his daughter, Stella. The single dad has made plenty of mistakes, but come hell or high water he will love and protect his girl. Especially from people like her mother.
When an artist comes to restore the murals at his family’s summer camp, Jake immediately smells a rat. The young woman is nervous, secretive, and worst of all, attractive. He’s been down this road before; Marley may as well be wearing a red flag and a pair of devil horns. There is no way he’s letting her into their lives.
That is, until the unthinkable happens.
The desperate father suddenly finds himself way out of his depth, and the very person he swore not to trust might be the only one who can help him.
