I just finished Melissa Schroeder’s The Sweet Shoppe: Cowboy Up. Amazing book, and I just loved her sexy cowboy! (It’s available in the Cowboy 6 Pack, only $.99 for all six books)
In the book, the little elderly woman who runs The Sweet Shoppe reminded me of my grandmother. It was a little strange, because I usually don’t think of any of my grandparents when I read sexy romances! But this little granny has some magical powers – just like my Grama Gert.
Grama Gert was a little Hungarian troll of a woman by the time she neared the end of her life. Whiskers and big ears, gnarled fingers and a nose just like mine but twice as large. The first time my hubby, Kick, met her, I could see him glancing back and forth between us, probably judging how long it would take for me to start looking just like her.
Honestly, I hope I do take after her! She and her sister had some interesting powers that they chose not to share with their own daughters. Instead, they taught the second generation. Me!
Grama showed me the proper way to hold my hands to put a curse on someone. Taught me the correct words to use to place it and make it stick. She also cautioned me that putting a curse on someone meant that I was holding the power end of the curse, and it would take a lot of my energy to keep the curse active.
I have to admit, I did put a curse on someone once. Truly someone who deserved it, or so I thought. Then, after cooling off and thinking about it, I removed the curse. I have no idea if this stuff works, but I didn’t want to take any chances.
I like to think that while Grama Gert showed me the darker side of our family’s powers, we also have a light side, a way to send grace and good Karma to people who need it. So, that’s what I focus on now days. Kind of like Melissa’s Sweet Shoppe owner in Cowboy Up. Sending out sexy goodness in her sweet treats.
How about you? Do you believe in magical powers? If you could have any magical power, what would it be?
Sending you Good Karma!
