Image of Bedeviled Angel (A Works Like Magick Novel)

Blair once again delivers an ingenious story with both humor and seriousness, along with intriguing characters in this new Works Like Magick tale. The twin girls are a delight, the hero is quite dashing and his presence as an angel reasonably explained, and the heroine’s struggle to overcome a debilitating problem is honestly dealt with.

Worry and too much interest in one of his charges brings guardian angel Chance Godricson back to Earth. Queisha Saint-Denis is agoraphobic and due for some big changes in her life — one being the arrival of the 5-year-old twin girls she was the surrogate for, after their parents go missing. Presented to Queisha as her new cook by Vivica, owner of the Works Like Magick employment agency, Chance also poses as co-guardian to the twins. As Queisha struggles to become what she feels the girls need, Chance works to keep his emotional involvement under wraps, all while shedding wing feathers all over the place and without telling a lie, which makes for some interesting conversations!
