In Salem, Massachusetts, Victoria Cartwright encouraged by
her two recently married best friends finally opens the
wardrobe that has been locked since before she was born
when the family ancestor witch Lily Lockhart shut it.
Allegedly, if she opens it, she will find her destiny
inside. Victoria does and pulls out a beautifully carved
unicorn, which makes her think of the man she dreamed she
was kissing near a unicorn.
In Caperglen, Scotland Rory the "hermit" Mackenzie watches
TV in a pub. His family and the town have been cursed ever
since his ancestor Drummond broke off his engagement with
the witch Lily Lockhart. Legend has it when the unicorn
returns to join the rest of the Immortal Classic zodiac
carousel, prosperity will return to the town. To his shock,
the woman he dreams of making love to is on Roadside
Antiques showing off a unicorn that could be the missing
Rory arrives and tells Victoria he carves wood figurines
like her unicorn that he saw on TV and would like to see
hers. He knows he must find a secret compartment to prove
this was carved by Drummond. That night they erotically
dream of one another. They discuss their dreams, which lead
to them making love. However, as he falls in love, his
mission is the unicorn not the witch.
The paranormal elements are interwoven into this wonderful
whimsical romance starring a delightful charming pair whose
sexual innuendos add amusement to a fine tale. Her newly
discovered stepsisters, the bewitching triplets, are a trip
which just adds to the fun. Though Victoria is in too much
denial over her witch powers, her weight, and love, readers
will cherish this terrific romantic fantasy.
