Teresa Roblin’s celebrated novel and sequel to ‘Hocus Pocus’ sees one woman inflicted by the steamiest of spells – causing her clothes to disappear. Fusing epic magic with a palm-sweating love story, Roblin depicts a Halloween-perfect adventure that will keep the light on well into the night. Trick? No! This is a big sweet literary treat…
Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2014 -- While Halloween is usually about the kids, award-winning author Teresa Roblin is finally giving adults something of their own to chew on. It’s not candy and doesn’t involve costumes; but does whisk readers off for a spellbinding adventure with plenty of spicy spells.
‘Now You See It . . . (Hot and Spicy Romance with a Twist of Magic)’ is about as unique as a novel can get; exploring a magic spell everyone just wishes they had the power to cast.
The harder she resists him, the faster her clothes will vanish.
Outspoken Sarah Santorelli hides her sensitive side behind a gruff personality. Fear of abandonment causes her to manipulate romantic relationships to avoid involving her heart. But when her prying aunt casts a spell on her, Sarah ends up on a voyage of discovery on the open seas.
The problem? Every time Sarah lets her guard down, instead of casting off her emotional barriers —the spell makes an item of clothing disappear.
Anthony Mancini has clawed his way to the top. Along the way he’s become a workaholic, putting the demands of his company above those he loves. That’s how he lost Sarah, and he wants a second chance to prove he’s changed.
Thanks to Aunt Lilly’s spell, and a week-long European cruise, stripping Sarah of her defenses just got easier.
“This is certainly a break from the norm,” admits Roblin, whose first novel ‘Hocus Pocus’ shot to critical acclaim. “It’s a light-hearted and seat-of-the-pants look at just how wild a cruise can get, all thanks to magic. Readers will find themselves grabbing onto their clothes to make sure they’re not next!” Continuing, “I originally released the novel in 2006 but recently revised much of the narrative ready to launch it before this year’s Halloween. It’s the first year adults will be praying for rain, so they can stay in to strip off a few more chapters!”
The book has received overwhelmingly positive reviews. CJ comments, “Loved it! Freaking hilarious. First book for me by Teresa Roblin. Storyline is a romantic comedy that was well written and entertaining leaving you with a warm & fuzzy feeling inside. Loved the characters & magic in this book. OMG! There is nothing like meddling relatives. Everybody needs an aunt Lilly. Loved the chemistry between Anthony & Sarah. I would definitely recommend & plan on reading Hocus Pocus by this author.”
Janet adds, “What a fun read. Teresa Roblin has created a world a populated it with fascinating magical characters and situations. This is book 2 in the series, but I didn't suffer too much from reading them out of order. And yes, I liked it well enough to seek out book one! The primary couple was fun and engaging and I had no trouble rooting for their happily ever after.”
Lizzie Andrews adored the now-famous Aunt Lily. She writes, “I fell in love with this magical story. It was sweet, well intentioned and had the most amazing characters! I loved Aunt Lily so much. Her schemeing was well intentioned but her magic spells always back fire on her.”

About Teresa Roblin
“In 2000, I started writing my first book, Hocus Pocus, and within seven months it was completed. My second book, Now You See It . . . , a year later. Naïve daydreamer that I am, I thought this is it, I'm going to get published. Optimistic, I entered my first book in a contest and placed last in the paranormal category.
So what did I do? I joined RWA, my local chapter, took writing courses, on-line workshops, talked to other writers and joined a critique group. By 2004, I was finally placing second and third in contests.
Now, everyone can read my books and share in my daydreams and understand why I usually walk around with a grin on my face.”
