To find a dangerous grimoire, they’ll have to break a few rules…and maybe their hearts.
When warlock Tony Castillo picks up Cassandra Sandoval at the airport, the copper-haired witch brings his restless, aimless life into razor-sharp focus…and triggers a wince-inducing case of foot-in-mouth disease. Luckily, her cool, hazel-green gaze betrays not a flicker of answering attraction. Nope, Cassandra is all business. Which Tony can understand, given the magnitude of her task.
Cassandra has one job: retrieve the de la Paz grimoires from the heavily warded hiding place at Tony’s family home, conceal them with her unique shielding power, and immediately return them to her clan’s territory. Easy. Quick. No time for anything to go wrong, to give in to the temptation of a too-handsome warlock.
They find Tony’s mother unconscious and the grimoires missing, the only clue a slimy residue reeking of Escobar magic. As they race to get the dangerous books out of the wrong hands, Cassandra and Tony cross a few boundaries, break a few more rules, and find something neither expected — love. But if they fail, nothing will shield them, or the world as they know it, from unrelenting evil.
Note: An Ill Wind is a standalone, no-cliffhangers romance in the Witches of Canyon Road series. It takes place approximately four months after the events of book 5, Demon Born.

Another great story!
An Ill Wind by Christine Pope is another great story in the Witches of Canyon Road series!
This one is special because we are introduced to a new character and find new strengths in someone who always acted the playboy.
Tony Castillo Is on his way to the airport to pick up Cassandra Sandoval of the de la Paz clan. She is going to pick up all of the black magic books Tony’s mother has been hiding and take them back to her clan. Only nothing ever goes as smoothly as the witches would want. Someone has stollen the books and knocked out Tony’s mother! After she is seen to, Tony and Cassandra take up the hunt.
Tony can’t go to his prima because she is on bed rest due to her pregnancy. And Cassandra is pretty sure her prima will say “No!” So the two decide it is better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission and set off on a multi-clan, multi-country adventure to figure out who took the books.
This book was unique because Tony and Cassandra flew all over the place, going into other clans’ territories and other countries without asking permission and without telling anyone what they were doing! Go team!
I throughly enjoyed this book and hope that you do too!
