The Daddy Spell
Five-year-old sisters Boo and Lindy want a daddy -- and anything goes in their quest, including a secret spell known only to the twins. On a lonely country road, Chad Applegate appears out of nowhere to help the girls and their mother rescue an injured dog. Robin Harmon's stubborn independence and breathtaking curves mesmerize the handsome pumpkin farmer, and her daughters charm him. In turn, they are fascinated by his tales of pumpkin magic. Despite Chad's captivating blue eyes and tender kisses, Robin cannot believe his happily-ever-after promises. Experience has proven those kinds of dreams never come true. Will Robin deny the possibility of forever or will her daughters' daddy spell work its magic
**Christmas Magic, an Echo Falls short story, is now at the end of The Daddy Spell. Robin and Chad's wedding day has arrived, but a new obstacle confronts them. Will they make their happily-ever-after come true?
In honor of my first publication, the original classic cover is still available on the print copy.
Praise for The Daddy Spell
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The twins, Lindy and Boo, are sweet, funny and just precocious enough to be believable. Robin's wary view on life is directly attributable to the fact that everyone has used and abandoned her. She doesn't believe in happy-ever-after. Chad is such a solid, good man with deep family ties and quirky, but fun relatives. He is attracted to Robin, but falls in love with her girls first, and knows he has to prove to Robin that he isn't going to leave her. He is the stuff of "happy-ever-after" and i wanted to tell Robin to believe. And, I have to admit: I got the sniffles, just a bit, at the end. If you're looking for a good autumn romance, I highly recommend giving The Daddy Spell a try."

"Ms. Colt had done a wonderful job of telling this entertaining story without bogging it down with too many details. When Robin and Chad first meet, the tension is immediately present and continues to grow throughout the story until it culminates to a very satisfying finale. The sexual chemistry between Chad and Robin is intense and immediate. Despite the unattractive situation, they find themselves in, they just can't stop the chemistry that explodes between them. Once Robin is able to get over her pride and allow Chad and his family to help her and the girls more, you begin to see that there is more to her than just a great mother. If you enjoy stories full of entertaining characters, human and animal, loads of sexual tension and sensuality, and an entertaining plot, this is one book you shouldn't miss." Jacquelyn R. Ward, The Romance Studio, 5-Heart Read
"This was a wonderfully charming and sweet story from beginning to end! The twins are adorable. Robin is lovely and understandably cautious. The hardest thing is she cannot believe in a happily-ever-after for herself. Chad is kind, hard working and male! He falls for the cute pixie twins but isn't beyond staring Robin's set T-shirt when they first meet! The chemistry and tension is good and the sex scenes are "making love" scenes. This is a wonderfully sweet romance that can be read in under three hours."
