Blurb: In need of a change of scenery, workaholic Jack Cullen takes a vacation to an isolated island in northern New England. He isn’t prepared for the unusual antics of the inn’s owner, a woman claiming to be a witch, or his powerful attraction to her mysterious niece.
Mia just wants to live her life in peace. Raising her daughter by herself, coupled with her job as a healer, she doesn’t have much time to pursue a relationship. Since Jack is only around for a few weeks, he seems like the perfect solution to her loneliness—until the time comes for him to leave, and she finds herself wishing he’d stay.
Review: Ms. Adams writes a charming story in Wishful Thinking. Unlike most erotic romances, in this novella the sexual chemistry is felt but not acted upon. The conflict and resolution built so that when the climax finally occurs, the reader has longed for the release as much like Jack and Mia. And while this is in the Xanadu line, I felt the fantasy aspects of this story irrelevant. At the core, this book is a simple love story with both the hero and heroine willing to make sacrifices for love. So whether you like contemporary, family and relationship, or fantasy romance, this novella will appeal to your tastes
