WishCraft: Touch of Magick Series Book 1
~~Richly drawn, deeply emotional, true-love romance~~
Heat level: steamy
Delilah has been trying to work her way through heartbreak by doing what she does best: baking and casting spells. She doesn’t trust men—or much of anyone—after a betrayal she can’t seem to get over. She’s not ready for any kind of relationship and picking up men then making them forget her is easier than getting involved.
Can a woman who can’t trust find new faith with a man who can brush off her magic? And how can she convince him they might be the real thing, when she was the one who wasn’t honest from the start?

WishCraft is the story of Delilah and Brandon. She practices magic, but not in a 'pointy hats and brooms' kind of way. Just in a way that allows her to have a little bit of fun between the sheets with a handsome stranger…and have him remember nothing of it the next day. Until she meets Brandon, a good guy, a handsome guy. A guy on whom her little spells don’t seem to work. He can’t remember everything, but he also can’t forget some things, and it all leaves him worried and intrigued. That is the beauty of Savannah Kade’s modern romance. It is a unique twist on the modern one night stand and the contemporary witch trope, but that’s also what makes it a fun read.
For me, the star of WishCraft is Brandon. He seems like a pretty straightforward guy who took mostly reasonable steps to figure out what was wrong with him, and the inclusion of his friend, Dan, added a much needed dose of humor. Brandon was a good guy, and he made a few missteps, but his intentions were pure. Delilah, though, was harder for me to like. She wiped people’s memories and was unrepentant about it, which made it difficult to understand her motives. The one flaw in this story was that the author, Savannah Kade, waited too long to reveal the WHY behind Delilah’s behavior. We get a tiny glimpse, which honestly didn’t make her all that sympathetic. And by the time we do get the big reveal, I found it hard to forgive her. Aside from that small thing, WishCraft is a fun story with a unique twist.
