    It's Halloween, Leigh's favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to. When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life, things take a turn for the worse. Hunter gets caught in the paranormal crossfire, and his very soul may be at risk. Leigh's job seems to have suddenly gone sour as well. The public school doesn't share this young teacher's enthusiasm for what they deem to be a religious holiday.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under His Protection to be better than the print version?

    Well both are equal as I loved the book but Sophie Eastlake brings it to life with audio


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Under His Protection?

    When Ivan and Julietta are in the elevator leaving the bridal shower for Mia and he lets her know he likes her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jules takes Ivan to her family's restaurant for the first time and her cousin just keeps giving her evil grins of awareness as Jules has only ever brought one male there before.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted to strangle River the man who got fired by Jules from her shop.

But she doesn't expect to find a manor house that eerily echoes one in her dreams, or an employer whose touch awakens a savage darkness in her.

    If Leigh has learned anything this summer, it's that magic can be chaotic. Despite some headline-making disasters in her last diary, Leigh is eternally hopeful. With Four-bitten Fangtasy behind her, Leigh decides to write a little paranormal erotica with her newest disasterpiece, Bangin' the Billion-were. She even takes on a rehash of the popular YA dystopian genre in her novella, Regurgitant. It seems that even the editing of other authors' writing can make her unwittingly fire up her literal witchcraft.
