Black Witch Magic by Mila Nicks - Book Tour + Giveaway

Black Witch Magic
Mila Nicks
Publication date: October 30th 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Selene Blackstone spends her days camped out in library corners with her nose glued to books. In a town like Brimrock, where she’s an outcast, she prefers her book friends to her real-life enemies. They’re a lot less judgmental. The rest of town believes she descends from a family of witches—including her evil witch grandma, Luna. In this case, the truth is stranger than fiction. She is a witch, and she’s cursed for all of eternity. Good thing her to-be-read list is pretty long…

Prickly Paranormal Investigator Aiden O’Hare speaks two languages: sarcasm and more sarcasm. He travels the country—and sometimes even the world—investigating strange phenomena with his best friend, Cory. Their investigations bring them to a cozy New England town called Brimrock, home to fabled evil witch Luna Blackstone. Armed with his dry wit, his bibliophilic love for books, and far too much free time, he’s determined to find out just what happened to Luna…

When Aiden meets Selene, he decides he must get to know her. When Selene learns Aiden is in town investigating her grandma, she knows she must stop him. He’s out to expose the truth. She’s out to keep it a secret. Neither expects to fall under each other’s spell, but sometimes love is supernatural.

Excerpt

No one would know if she locked up early. She could rush through the closing checklist in under fifteen minutes and make it out in time for her date with Aiden. She popped to her feet from behind the L-shaped desk and got started performing the checklist. She powered off computers and printers in the lab and filed any last book returns.

The massive wall clock, wooden framing surrounding black spade hands, ticked and ticked in the silence. She checked the time it read and then hurried to finish her last walk-through. She only dragged her feet by the window where she was certain she had seen Officer Gustin crawling in the snow.

She even paused and stared long and hard out the now-dark window.

But nothing was out of the ordinary. Nothing met her gaze but a blanket of velvety purple sky kissing steep, powdery snow hills. If Gustin had ever been out there—and by the second she doubting herself more and more—he was long gone. He had gone somewhere.

Selene swallowed and moved on, wending down the next stretch of aisles. She passed each one without incident until a loud thump behind her made her stop in her tracks. She whirled around to pinpoint the noise, again seeing nothing out of the ordinary. Innate curiosity urged her to retrace her steps, back up toward the aisles she’d already passed, and double-check them.

Nothing, nothing, nothing—

Something. Selene braked when she came across an aisle with a random fallen book on the floor. She had passed this aisle seconds ago and no book had been out of place. Her stomach quaked, innards knotting.

“Hello?”

Her single, solitary word echoed into the quiet, empty library.

Only silence answered her. She licked her lips and fixed her glasses and then edged forward to pick up the book. She filed it back where it belonged when the lights above cut off. She paused, her heart now a runaway string of heavy beats.

Ears now trained for any sound, she picked up on the pad of footsteps. She gulped and her knees knocked as a cold tremor traveled down her spine.

She wasn’t alone anymore.
