Wrapped Up in You
From the Series My Boyfriend Is a Monster
Staci Glass feels cursed—whenever there’s a crisis, she’s stuck in the middle. Now her best friend, Faith, has a new hobby, and against her better judgment, Staci conjures up the courage to go along. They join a trio of wannabe witches for a magical ceremony in an Incan history exhibit. Their chanting is loud enough to raise the dead, it seems. Why else would a shriveled-up mummy go missing—and a mysterious Incan prince suddenly appear?
Prince Pachacutec—or "Chuck"—is a man with a past. He died tragically five hundred years ago, but that’s all ancient history as far as Staci is concerned. He is everything she could want—kind, charming, and drop-dead gorgeous. But the witches aren’t willing to live and let live. Will Staci fight for Chuck? Or do the witches have a point when they say reanimated corpses make bad boyfriends?
