Three Kisses, One Midnight by author Evelyn Skye

Three Kisses, One Midnight

Three New York Times bestselling authors craft a delicious concoction of storytelling about best friends who discover that love is the most powerful magic of all.

This Halloween, magic will reawaken in the town of Moon Ridge, and any love forged that night will last forever. At least, that’s what the founder’s fable says, and best friends Onny, Ash, and True—better known as “The Coven”—aren’t taking any chances.

After brewing a supposed love potion from a recipe passed down by Onny’s grandmother, each member of The Coven sets off to try to charm the love of their life. One falls for an unexpected suitor. Another paints himself into a corner. And the third refuses to believe in magic at all… until true love proves her wrong.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Gilmore Girls: Three Kisses, One Midnight will put you under its spell and keep you reading long past the witching hour!

Dear soon-to-be-ensorcelled mortals,

Have you ever crushed so hard on someone that it took up all the space in your brain, yet that person didn’t even know you existed?

What if you had a love potion that could change all that? That could suddenly make it look like the horizon was, in fact, the curvature of your smile? That the universe and all its WONDER lay somewhere in the enigmatic darkness of your eyes?!!

Or, you know, just make them…pause in your presence?

Then again, what if it was a total dud? Or, even worse, definitely not a dud but given to your sworn enemy instead of your swoonworthy crush? Welp.

As three friends who like our pumpkin spice sprinkled with a hint of mischief and magic, we wanted to write a funny, autumnal rom com about–you guessed it–three friends who get themselves in a bit of trouble when they brew a supposed love potion.

You see, every hundred years, magic wakes up in the town of Moon Ridge, and all things become possible. You just have to be careful what you wish for.

Three Kisses, One Midnight is about unrequited crushes, an epic Halloween party, and wisecracking best friends who give each other a hard time but stick together no matter what. There’s a warm-hearted goth teacher, a grumpy black cat, and an ancient, kidnapped mannequin named Wicked Wynona. And, of course, love–lots of it! But the thing about love is, you have to know where to look.

This book was born out of innumerable text messages and video calls among the three of us, always full of laughter, zany, cocktail-fueled ideas that turned into legitimate plot points, and cameos by Roshani’s cat. The idea of a magic-kissed town where we–er, our characters– would get to attend an over-the-top Halloween gala and kiss hot people was just too much to pass up. Et voila! The book you’re now holding between your hands was born.

We had so much fun writing this story, and we hope you’ll join us on our countdown to midnight. Only three kisses to go…

Mischievously yours,

Roshani, Evelyn, & Sandhya
