Any Witch Way -- Dylan Newton

Any Witch Way -- Out now from The Wild Rose Press

Graduate student Lily Andrews resigned herself to a life of perpetual virginity. With her recent twisted appetites and weird fugues hospitalizing every would-be boyfriend, it's no wonder she uses her coursework as an excuse not to date.
Then, she meets a witch.

Joshua enters Lily's life to complete penance for a deadly spell he cast centuries ago. Joshua must counter Lily's demon-wrought fugues with his own Wiccan magick, or lose her forever. 

As the pivotal Wiccan holiday, Samhain, approaches, time is running out. Together, they must battle an ancient dark force, fighting for their lives and their new-found love…ANY WITCH WAY they can.

“You think you cast a spell on me? Like, saved me with your magic wand?” Lily crossed her arms. “You don’t seriously expect me to believe that?”

“Yes, I do.” The dark stars inked on Joshua’s temple glowed silver in the moonlight as he grinned. “Except the last bit. Wands are for amateurs.”
           
Then he swiped his hand through the air as if tracing a complex image, and tingling warmth cascaded through Lily. The heat coalesced to a tangible weight, like hands at her waist.

Lily gasped. She felt his touch, but his hands were nowhere near her!

“H-how are you…”

Joshua’s brown eyes twinkled and he murmured in what sounded like another language. Instantly, the hypnotic sensation traveled up her arms in a swirling pattern, igniting her skin. 

“Please.” Lily breathed, not sure what she meant. Please stop? Or please don’t stop?

Joshua’s fingers curled at his side and the sensation evaporated.

Lily willed her voice not to tremble. “Okay, obviously you’ve got some weird street magician thing going on. I don’t know how you’re doing those tricks—,”

“Spells.” Joshua interrupted.

“—spells,” Lily continued, “But what’s inside of me is dangerous. I know it’s hard to understand, but I’m not normal. Something inside me is…damaged. It’s like I’m—”

“Cursed,” he finished with the exact word she intended to use.

Lily nodded.

Joshua’s tattoos glimmered in the darkness.

“Your curse is why I’m here.”
