Writer Spotlight: Darlene Kuncytes
I am so excited to have author Darlene Kuncytes on the blog today. She is one super amazing author and I know you will love her writing just as much as I do. Darlene Kuncytes is a best-selling author who was born and raised in Ohio, and still happily resides there. She is a complete smart ass with a wicked sense of humor who has been told on more than one occasion that she is irritatingly chipper in the mornings. And, honestly-she couldn't care less! She loves to laugh and maybe sing a verse or two of "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood". You can usually find her with a coffee mug in hand and a smile on her face causing all kinds of trouble.

Title :: A Witch's Hearts Desire
Let's Sample it:: Chapter 1
Serena St. James bit down hard on her lower lip as she tried with
everything that she had to keep herself from drumming her fingers on the
countertop as the woman standing in front of her prattled on and on about
how she needed this love potion so very desperately. And how, she just
couldn’t go a single day more without that special man in her life. She
just would not stop complaining about how all of her friends had someone
special in their lives and how she deserved to find love just as much as
Oh, geez, really? Serena thought with an irritated huff. Just what in the
hell was wrong with people?
First off - you didn’t need a man in your life to make you complete, and
she was living proof of that fact. Second, if you had to depend on one of
her little spells or potions to achieve it… well then, something was
definitely wrong. And lastly… if you felt that you deserved to find love…
well, you most likely didn’t!
Okay yes; Serena reluctantly admitted as a small frown creased her brow.
Maybe it was time to just suck it up and admit that she might be just the
tiniest bit jaded on the whole subject. Maybe cynical was her middle name.
But, if she were to be totally honest, her past track record with men left
much to be desired and at twenty-eight years old, she had finally made a
damn good life for herself. Her shop… Serena’s Supernatural Specialties was
doing extremely well. And…she was happy. Happier than she had been in a
very long time.
Her grandmother had been a witch, and now Serena was following in her
footsteps. Sure, she wasn’t powerful like Gran had been, but she did okay
Serena’s mother hated that she had gone into what Serena liked to call, The
Family Business; but when you had spent your entire life accidently doing
magic… you really had no other choice than to learn to embrace it.
Her mother had wanted her only child to settle down… get married, and
hopefully give her lots of non-magical Grandchildren. Ugh! So not happening
mom; Serena thought with a snort, silently grateful that she had moved a
couple of states away from her mother and her mother’s new husband.
“I’m sorry… what?” The woman in front of the counter asked, pulling Serena
from her thoughts with an embarrassed yank. Crap! Focus, Serena, so that
you can get the hell out of here and go home!
“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t say anything; it was just a tickle in my throat.”
“Well, anyway…” the girl continued as if she was being completely put out
by the interruption, and Serena found herself getting the beginnings of a
headache. “There’s this guy at work, and I really think he’s hot… so, like,
what can I get for twenty bucks? Can you make him fall completely, madly in
love with me?”
For twenty bucks? Not bloody likely!
Serena took a deep breath and forced as sweet of a smile as she could
muster at the moment to her lips; but it was damned hard. “Let’s just see
what we can do.” She said between clenched teeth as she dug around and
quickly mixed up the necessary ingredients in record time, wanting nothing
more than to finish this up and get the hell out of here. She said a few
quiet words over the mixture, then poured it all into a small red glass
“This will only work if you are both pure of heart. Love doesn’t make
mistakes,” Serena informed her softly, yet her tone had a stern edge to it.
Serena didn’t fool around when it came to her craft. “I can do the right
potion, but if it is not meant to be, then it won’t truly be love. It will
only be a temporary lust.”
“That works for me!” The girl laughed haughtily, and Serena found herself
cringing. Oh, yeah, this is just going to work out fan-freaking-tasticly!
The girl threw down a twenty and dashed from the shop, giggling happily.
Finally, Serena thought as she walked over to the door and locked it,
twisting the open sign around to announce that she was now closed. That was
enough dealing with idiots for one night! Sheesh.
