For the first time in her life, Kit Colbana’s life was going just fine. She had a nice, easy job. She’d managed to escape the not-so-loving attentions of a family who’d rather see her dead than look at her. She had a roof over her head and she didn’t have to fight for every little thing she had.
Then she finds herself tangled up with a green-eyed witch by the name of Justin. He’s looking for somebody and for some bizarre reason, he seems to think she can help. All she has to do is say no, and she can go back to her safe little existence. That’s exactly what she needs to do and she knows it.
Too bad she’s not very good at following her own advice.
March Release Date from JC Daniels
Prequel story from the Kit Colbana series. Takes place between A Stroke of Dumb Luck and Blade Song. I really enjoyed getting to see how Kit and Justin first met. With a novella length story, it's a really fast read, but also satisfying in giving more background to Kit and other characters in this series. This story is an early story of Kit, so she isn't quite as bad-ass as she is in future books, but you can see the potential is already there.
