Jimmy McCreadie. The tattooed man makes her weak in the knees -- he’s every naughty desire she’s had come to life.

“I want a bad boy, but not one that will do me harm. Those guys looked scary -- not in a good way.”
“Agreed.” Sarah thumped her spoon on the table. “And I have a suggestion.”
Karey sat up straighter and paid more attention. Instead of their normal grumbling, someone had a plan? Good. “What is it?”
Karey admired her friends. Nikki was the sexy one. She could walk into any establishment and have men falling at her feet. They seemed to love her tall, slender appearance and deep brown eyes. Then there was Mandy. She embodied sweet-natured and cute. At just over five feet tall, Mandy was the sprite of the group. She laughed easily and smiled a lot. Natalie could be moody, but she knew how to play nearly any sport -- and usually better than her male counterparts. Karey loved cheering her on at the local baseball games. Sarah was the born leader and the pushiest of the five. Her intelligence could be a hindrance or an asset, depending on how she used it. Most people saw her as pushy, but she could organize and plan like no other.
Karey sometimes wondered how she fit in with these fantastic women. She was smart, but not hyper intelligent. She loved books and observing but tended not to talk much.
“The plan?” Natalie checked her watch. “I’m late for a game.”
“Tonight, we meet at my place. I’ve found a spell that guarantees we’ll find our perfect man within the next seven days.” Sarah smiled and narrowed her eyes in triumph. “All we have to do is write down exactly what we want on a scroll, say the words of the spell, and toss the scroll into the fire. What do you think?”
“It’s guaranteed to work?” Karey didn’t believe it.
“Really?” Mandy toyed with her water glass. “You’ve had can’t-miss plans before that were duds.”
“I know, but this one is really guaranteed.” Sarah nodded. “If you’re in, be at my house at nine. I’ll have the scrolls ready.”
“You’re sure this works?” Karey asked again. “You don’t seem to have all the details.”
“Hey, where I found it says it’s foolproof.” Sarah shrugged and toyed with her scroll. “I might not have all the details, but it’s just a spell. For all we know, it won’t work. Do we really need every last piece of minutia? No.”
“Right.” Karey sighed. What did she have to lose? She lived alone, didn’t go out much, and only met people at the store. If a spell could work, then why not give it a try? If nothing else, she’d have an adventure.
