After much thought, consideration and discussions with People In The Know, I’ve decided, now that I have the first 3 books of Wishes & Dreams published, and #4, Coveted Mate, is available for pre-order, to make the first book in the series, Wishes in a Bottle, perma-free. This is a magical genie paranormal romance!
The mysterious stranger disappeared from her life as suddenly as he’d arrived… then emerges from an old bottle in the attic
After 600 years of being bound to a magical bottle, Julian is beginning to wonder if he will be trapped as a Djinn forever.
Centuries ago in plague-struck Italy, Julian DiConti cast a powerful spell in desperation to have the magical power to be able to help his people who were dying in horrific conditions. The spell goes spectacularly awry, leaving Julian enslaved to a Djinn bottle, bound to grant three wishes to each Master of the bottle until the spell can be broken. More than anything, Julian longs for a normal life – for a home, and a family. After six hundred years, however, he has begun to despair of ever being freed from the spell.
She’d gladly free Julian from the spell, if only she knew how.
Enter Alessandra Taylor, a young woman who has followed her calling to help others, in the face of vociferous disapproval from her family. Working at a shelter for battered women, she’s thrilled to meet the reclusive Julian DiConti, whose collection of garments from third world countries has provided funding for shelters across the country. When Julian turns out to be a Djinn from the old bottle she found in her attic, she empathizes with his despair.
But one by one, she’s forced to use the precious wishes to help others.
Although she’s willing to free him, he can’t tell her how, and once she has made her third wish, the magic of the bottle will whisk Julian away and out of her life forever… unless she can somehow figure out how to free him.
Wishes in a Bottle is a dreamy paranormal romance novel with a happy ever after and no cliffhanger. It’s the first book in the Wishes & Dreams paranormal romance series by romance author Allie McCormack, featuring Djinn and Shapeshifters! Plunge into the magic and enchantment of an unconventional and, dare we say it, out-of-this-world love story.
