Elizabeth Resnik’s urgent need of a home for her two year old daughter, and a job that would keep her close, led her to accept a live-in housekeeping position in the neighborhood “haunted house.” She was determined to make it work.
Brilliant but absent minded physicist Culley Ward did not want a keeper. It wasn’t until Elizabeth knocked on his door, and her daughter called him “Daddy,” that Culley began to feel the depth of his isolation, and an intriguing attraction to this determined woman.
An unexpected truce, initiated by a child and built through the shared knowledge of loss, left Culley wondering if it was fair to take advantage of Elizabeth, but wanting desperately to do so. Would acting on his impulses ruin his second chance at love? Would the “sorcerer’s magic” be enough to heal her heart and win her love?
