In a San Francisco struggling with earthquakes and rising seas, where technology can do things that are close enough to magic, Maggie Lachlan is a computer whisperer. The one they call when no one else can find the elusive bug bringing a complex system to its knees. They call her the TechWitch. But she knows there’s nothing magical about what she does. It’s just hard-earned skill.
So, when billionaire Damon Riley, owner of the world’s biggest virtual reality gaming company, comes calling with a problem that his entire empire of geeks can’t fix, Maggie leaps at the job. Riley Arts is the kind of place she feels at home. All tech. No magic. Except, perhaps, for the undeniable chemistry she has with the man in charge.
But she never imagined stepping into one of Damon’s games would break a spell she didn’t know she was under and free the magic her mother said she didn’t possess.
Now she has a demon hunting her and the magical world she knows nothing about to navigate. To save herself—and the world—she needs to learn fast.
Because, when it comes to magic, the games are wicked. And losing can be deadly…Wicked Games is the first book in the TechWitch series, an exciting dark and sexy futuristic urban fantasy from RITA® Award nominated author M.J. Scott. This series has witches, demons, an ongoing relationship that will have an HEA, sexy times, and a lot of computer geeks. Perfect if you like the idea of a strong heroine, a hot protective billionaire and magic and technology colliding. Enjoy!
