NIGHT MUSIC (Candy Bar Book 3)

NIGHT MUSIC (Candy Bar Book 3)

NIGHT MUSIC (Candy Bar Book 3)

The Candy Bar is in an old part of South Beach, and it was an old Spanish mission, sitting on an ancient Indian burial ground. Or so legend has it.
All I know for certain is that my eyes drew to the chief, just as the lights began to flicker, and the brick wall behind the bar began to sweat. Candy yelled to her customers, “Magic is in the air—be careful what you wish for.” Then she gave a huge laugh.
I couldn’t look away from the chief with the big mustache and the adorable beer belly. We locked eyes, and for some reason, I couldn’t break free. My heart raced. My palms grew damp. Blood rushed to my head, and my toes tingled.

Personally, I’d never experienced the magic surrounding this place, and I didn’t want to either. I was very content with my life, except for the little fact that I needed money to pay my medical bills. The cancer treatments had eaten my savings and put me in serious debt. That’s all I wanted, just to stay healthy and get out of this financial hole. Nevertheless, I found myself wishing for more.
I wanted to be a really good singer, become a nationally acclaimed recording star, sing at sold-out concerts, and hand out awards on Grammy night. Since I was wishing for things unlikely to happen, I decided to make the most of it by wishing to have a wild fling with a hot guy on my road to success. That’s all I remember. A bright light appeared as I continued gazing at the middle-aged firefighter. He looked dazed too. I felt my body start to hum, my insides heat up, and energy zap me from head to toe. I’d been around the Candy Bar long enough to know that I’d been touched by magic. I was really in for it now.

CHAPTER TWO
John Hanley What the hell? Rotating my shoulder muscles, I tried to shake off whatever the fuck was happening. My eyes stared at some dame, and for the life of me, I couldn’t look away. Magic, my ass. But there was definitely something weird going down. Felt like somebody decided to do a highland fling over my grave.

My entire body had chills then caught fire as my eyes locked with the woman on stage. What did she call herself? Frannie May. Wasn’t that a mortgage company or some damn thing? I watched her mouth drop open and slam shut a few times-like some kind of cute guppy. Her cheeks grew rosy, her eyes sparkled so damn bright I was temporarily blinded, unable to see anything but her. The entire bar faded in the background.

I heard lightning strike the old tiled roof and worried the centuries old building might go up in flames. Half my crew was shit-faced right now. Not that the fire hall was unmanned but if this place went up in flames, none of the guys here would be sitting on their dicks. Myself included. “Hey, Chief. You okay?” Brett asked. “You look kind of shaken.”
Rubbing a hand over my face, I blinked a few times, trying to clear my vision. “Yeah. I’m fine. Don’t know what came over me. Felt the chills. Maybe I’m coming down with something.” Brett laughed. “Well, you know what they say about this place. It sits on an ancient burial site. Maybe you stirred some old ghosts.” He wriggled his fingers in front of my face. “Ooohh. They’re coming to get you.” “Don’t be stupid. How many shots have you had?”
Brett ignored the question and continued to bait me. “Or maybe there really is some magic shit and you got caught up in it. Hope not, it’ll change your life forever.”

Romance blooms in the small town of Serendipity Falls, in the foothills of Mammoth, California. There’s a wedding a month and divorces are non existent.

Tara Reynolds is a new pastry chef for the mountain resort, and love is the last thing on her mind when she arrives for the winter, but the handsome Olympian skier who owns a local bar has become quite irresistible. Can the mysterious forces in the town unite this couple who are fighting it every step of the way?

The Candy Bar Complete – 4 book box set: Candy Bar Series

Four best selling romantic comedies by Patrice Wilton, The Candy Bar series, all for one amazing price. REPLACING BARNIE, WHERE WISHES COME TRUE, NIGHT MUSIC, and FOR THE LOVE OF CANDY, which is only now released — bundled together for your enjoyment. They come with a warning–you may stay up late at night laughing.
Enjoy!

REPLACING BARNIE
Lydia O’Reilley, divorce attorney, is on the fast track to make partner until she meets a hot stranger at the Candy Bar, and one thing leads to another. The following morning she’s doing a joint deposition and in walks Jed, the man she’d spent the night with, and her new client’s soon-to-be-ex husband. Later she learns the condom broke and she’s pregnant. Now her perfect life is seriously derailed, and it may take a little magic to make everything right.

WHERE WISHES COME TRUE
Susie spends Friday night at the Candy Bar, the hottest spot in South Beach. She wears a perfect size 2, and blows her money on Jimmy Choo shoes. But appearances can be deceiving. Perfect on the outside, her flaws are carried deep. Disfigured at birth, her father, a renowned plastic surgeon started her life under the knife and her sees herself as the ugly duckling in a family of swans. Her words, not mine. She is about to begin an adventure of a lifetime, a 6-week sojourn in Florence to study painting, when Brett, a hot firefighter who she has known and loved forever, is badly injured and scarred. He pushes her away, but she is a champion for the underdog, and it’s impossible for her to leave anyone in need, little alone the man she loves. She must choose between her dream of studying painting or staying behind to help the man she loves–even if he doesn’t love her. Will Susie ever find the happiness that has always been outside her grasp, and learn that love begins within?

NIGHT MUSIC
Fran Sherman is a survivor—she’s also resilient, stubborn, tenacious, feisty, and a whole slew of other words, but you get my point. If a tornado came her way, she’d probably swallow it whole and spit the damn thing out. That’s Fran Sherman, like a tank and just as indestructible.
And yet, tonight at the Candy Bar she feels vulnerable as if something beyond her control just might get the better of her.
Fire chief John Hanley is also at the bar that night. He’s looking forward to retirement in a few years, and has dreams of his own. They don’t include love, marriage or magic!

FOR THE LOVE OF CANDY — The Candy Bar is in trouble. Crime and corruption has changed the landscape of the street. Candy can stay and fight it, or sell and run. She has called an emergency meeting with her dear friends, the sisters of her heart, to tell them her decision. Enter Harrison Wolfe—Boston lawyer, probably a Mayflower descendent by his arrogance and arresting good looks. He has come to the Candy Bar to tell her that his daughter is engaged to her son Billy. He’s only 21 and graduating from college, and is certainly not ready to take on the responsibilities of marriage. Harrison is also strongly opposed to this engagement and wants to put an end to it before it even begins. Thunder cracks open the sky, lightning strikes, and Harrison and Candy are caught up in the magic and madness. Now they have to fight their attraction—and keep their pants on–to stay focused on keeping their children apart. This hilarious, touching, upbeat story will engage your emotions and hopefully have you laughing one minute, and wiping tears the next.
