No more Mr. Nice Guy.

For Becca Salt being a witch isn’t all magic. Too curvy and lonely, she spends her nights running a makeover service for demons, vamps, weres and zombies who want to project a more human, normal side. Their goal? To get the babes without the authorities hunting them down like rabid dogs. Once Becca suppresses the worst of their beast, they’re on the hunt and gone.

Dating has been a definite bitch for Eric Diletto. Although he’s hot and hung, he’s also one of Cupid’s descendants—a god born to believe in courtship, courtesy and all that other junk. Tired of women dumping him for the bad boys, Eric hires Becca to release his inner beast. Grrrr.

Two potions later, they’re crawling all over each other. With Eric’s newfound dominance, he’s definitely the man. And the god, who intends to take Becca here, there and everywhere. Who said sorcery and love wasn’t fun?

Warning—a witchdoctor’s nightmare. Contains potions with weird side effects, a sorceress with limited magical skills and a yearning heart, plus a minor god who wants to get down and dirty. Bad, bad boy.

Becca owns ‘From Crud to Stud’, a business that offers services to paranormal clients who wish for a change.  She is a half witch and half mortal and continues to practice her magic, which often messes up. Becca and her staff usually service werewolves and vampires who wish to suppress their beasts.  Although, Eric comes in for a different reason.

Eric is a descendant of Cupid and has a difficult time finding love.  All of his past girlfriends have left him for the bad boy types.  So, Eric goes to ‘From Crud to Stud’ to try and enhance his beast.  He hopes Becca can help him, but she mistakes him for someone else.  Freeing the Beast is a fun and steamy short novella and I read it in one sitting.
