Can he find a way to break the curse and be on his way? Or, does working with someone who also commits crimes bring a sense of belonging he’s never felt before?

Kari didn’t know she was a witch until she met Andre. She was a solo con artist on the run, stealing every bit of money and jewels she could lay her hands on. She always thought she was a gifted human with powers. This came in handy, and all she had to do was eat for sustenance. But the reason she is solo is due to a dark past, with a father she doesn’t want to talk about, and possible fleeting love behind. Now she accidentally put a familiar curse on a random vampire she was going to steal from. Stuck with him, she has no choice but to flee and make this duo money heists work. But he’s not so bad, even though he brutally kills for blood. Can they get along and outrun the human and magical laws?
