About the Book
A Gift of Jacinth; Allie McCormack
Adult; Paranormal Romance; 379 pages
Amazon Digital Services LLC – June 4, 2019
Douglas needed a miracle. What he got was a genie…
A Gift of Jacinth is a charming, playful paranormal romance novel with a happy ever after and no cliffhanger.
Veterinarian Douglas McCandliss considered himself an ordinary kinda guy with an ordinary kinda life. He had no idea why he’d bought the old silver teapot, and when a young woman appeared before him claiming to be a genie, he almost wished he hadn’t. If only she wasn’t so damned cute.
Ebullient and cheerful, Jacinth loved granting wishes and helping people. So she was thrilled when her teapot’s new owner, a single father with custody of two young children, asked her to stay until he could find a nanny. The problem was, the longer she stayed, the more she was attracted to Douglas, and she was certainly not willing to turn over care of Ben and little Molly to just anybody. But she was a 900 year old genie, and had no intention of falling in love with a mortal man. None whatsoever.
Get your copy and plunge into the magic and enchantment of the Djinn world, and experience a charming and unexpected love story.

Allie McCormack has another winner with book 2 in her Wishes and Dreams series, A Gift of Jacinth. Humor, romance, and touching drama mingle in this semi-sweet Djinn romance.
Jacinth is still a young Djinn, at a mere 900 years old. And she is not, repeat NOT going to fall in love with a human. Ever. That ended badly for her mother, after all. So when her new sahib (master) wishes for only one thing – the two children his ex-wife abducted, she does her level best to NOT fall in love with them, or the handsome veterinarian who bought her teapot.
Douglas? Once he’s willing to let go of his skepticism, he has only one wish, and that’s to get his kids back. When Jacinth grants his wish, he’s grateful and panicked. He doesn’t have anything lined up for the two youngsters he flies cross-country to retrieve. Jacinth steps in to help him get the children settled, and while everyone gets along, he tries to move on, knowing she’ll leave after his third wish.
McCormack brings hilarity and hijinks to the table in her second paranormal romance. She leaves the bedroom door closed while keeping the sexual tension steamy. An easy four-stars.
