Strange occurrences happen every day, but now the ladies of Mysteria are about to unleash a tempest of seduction that will have tongues wagging for centuries to come...

Four New York Times bestselling authors. One supernaturally seductive town where "Desperate Housewives meets Charmed" (Fresh Fiction). Welcome to Mysteria, Colorado, home to a vegan vampire, a neighborly werewolf, a pair of sisterly witches, a demon nanny, and more. Passions run high in this hot two-in-one omnibus edition of Mysteria and Mysteria Lane.
