The Spelling Error

13-year-old Lucy Dane wants someone to love her, but instead of a dog, her father Paul brings home Mira Taggart.

Mira's used to fighting the stereotypes engendered by her Pagan faith. She's not too happy that her "airy-fairy" mother lured her back home to help out a friend's struggling business.

Paul Dane is much more down-to-earth than Mira expected, and his kisses have her head in the clouds. Mira’s happy to meet a man who doesn’t see her Pagan faith as a liability to his career, but would she feel the same way without the spell?
