So you've heard of cockblocking, right?
Gannon Wilson is cursed. Although he's not sure how or why, everyone believes his curse killed his beloved wife, Gilmore, just after she gave birth to their beautiful little girl, Emmie. Even Gannon believes he might have caused her exceptionally untimely demise, if inadvertently. So, although he's a single father—functioning on lack of sleep, exhaustion, and otherwise pretty frazzled most of the time—he's not looking for a witch girlfriend to ease his troubles. Anything but, in fact. Gannon only dates humans… because he's scared of what the curse might do if he dared love another witch.
Henrietta Fannyfartle is on a mission. She learned of the tragic tale of Gilmore and Gannon through the witchy grapevine, but she doesn't think the Taradiddle curse is what ended Gilmore's life. Since she's working on her thesis—magical university is such a drag, amirite?—she needs evidence to support her suppositions, and there's only one way to get it.
Henri needs to get close to Gannon and his daughter to verify her theory is correct, so she can write her paper, and then go on to be one of the leading witch professors among her contemporaries. One problem? Gannon is wary of witches, which is wise. What's a witch to do but pretend to be a human in the middle of nowhere West Virginia so she can get the story of a lifetime.
Wait… one more problem. The one thing the clever little witch didn't count on was love.
