Meet Shanna Swendson!
Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit author Shanna Swendson is gaining legions of fans as a premier writer of paranormal romance. In ONCE UPON STILETTOS, a follow-up to her popular ENCHANTED, INC., Katie, a Texan-turned-Manhattanite who's immune to magic, works as an executive assistant at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc. She's a wiz at spotting the deceptive enchantments and spell-laced documents that make business go a little too smoothly for MSI's competitors and contractors. If only she could avoid falling under the spell of Owen, a hunky wizard who also happens to be her co-worker. Owen, however, is too preoccupied with an alarming security breach to notice. Someone has broken into his office and disturbed top-secret files, and it reeks of an inside job. CEO Merlin (yes, the Merlin) taps Katie and her special ability to uncover the magical mole.
Keeping her feelings in check while sleuthing alongside Owen, Katie is shocked to discover that her immunity to magic is waning, putting her in grave danger. Soon she's surrendering to the charms and enchantments of everyone and everything around her, including a killer pair of red stilettos. Katie must now conjure up her instincts to get to the bottom of the break-in, regain her power, and win the wizard of her dreams.
