The Janus Witch



- Indie Authors Project Regional Book Selection (2019)

- Readers Favorite 5-Star (2018)


A beautiful witch with a violent past, forms an unlikely love affair with a compassionate young doctor…until she fears she may end up killing him. Tressalayne is a member of a murderous witches’ coven. An attack by witch hunters forces the coven to escape through a hastily constructed portal of magic. Ripped from her medieval world, the portal hurls Tressalayne and the coven’s leader, Morganna, into present day East Texas. Critically injured in the passage, Tressalayne awakes in a hospital with no memory of her previous life. Lucas Beckett finds himself in charge of the mysterious patient’s recuperation, and soon develops more than just a medical interest in her recovery. However, their blossoming relationship is marred by Tressalayne’s nightmarish flashbacks and uncontrolled manifestations of magic. Can their life together survive this collision of past and present? As Tressalayne’s struggles continue, other threats emerge to loom over the young couple, and the stage is set for a final confrontation. Murderous intent, or love and devotion? Only one can survive and The Janus Witch must decide. "Michael Scott Clifton weaves and casts a magical spell in his fantasy romance The Janus Witch. A must read for any Fantasy Romance, Urban Romance, or Paranormal Romance enthusiast!" ~ Ranay James Author of The McKinnon Legends: A Time Travel Series
