A Man Worth Fighting For
The Wiccan Haus is a series of shared-world books, which means that multiple authors will write books set in the same world. The books are stand alones and can be read in order. However, we recommend that you read Shifting Hearts first, because this book introduces you to the world, the residents, and the magic of the Wiccan Haus.

Shot by a member of his military team, Justin Lawson retreats to the Wiccan Haus. Holly Walters refuses to accept her boyfriend’s out-of-the-blue rejection without an explanation, even if getting the answers forces her to be trapped on a bizarre island for an entire week. She’s going to use every minute to work Justin out of her system once and for all. Justin’s body and spirit begin to heal under Holly’s loving ministrations. As she talks about never seeing each other again, he realizes he never wants to let her go. But the rogue assassin who had gone after Justin before is after him again. Before he can fight to make Holly believe in their love, he’ll have to fight for both their lives.
“How did you hurt your knee?” Holly asked.
“Occupational hazard,” Justin muttered.
That wasn’t very comforting, considering he was in the military and always going off on missions that he couldn’t give her any details about. “Did you fall and break it?”
“Bullet shattered it.” His words were clipped.
She flinched, wanting desperately to reach for him, hating to think of the pain he’d been in, the pain she’d known nothing about. “And how long before or after this happened did you send me an eight word break-up text?”
“About seventy-two hours after.”
She immediately knew she’d been right not to take his text at face value. The self-destruction of a client and the week of lost work were worth it. She’d needed this explanation. More than that, it proved there was still hope for them. “So you conceivably could have still been under the effects of anesthesia.”
“But you were on pain medication for sure.”
“Don’t make excuses for me. I was an ass. I broke up with you, and you deserve better.”
