Today it is my pleasure to welcome New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Jennifer Probst to HJ!


The Search for Love: Do Love Spells Work?

Jennifer_ProbstIf you’ve read any of the Marriage to a Billionaire series, you know there is a mysterious book of spells that connect each of the characters. The book gets passed around, and as each of my heroine’s create the spell – whether voluntarily or involuntarily – they find their soul mate at the end.

I’ve had many requests to write the actual book of spells from women all over the world. Now it’s finally here! I decided to also include a special exclusive short story with Alexa and Nick from The Marriage Bargain – since they started it all.

But I’ve been asked another question recently. Does it work?

My answer?


Now, before everyone runs out to start a campfire and begins chanting to Earth Mother for their very own billionaire, I’m putting in a disclaimer. The spell is based on a powerful method of defining your needs and putting it into the universe. The written word holds magic. Anyone who has ever written knows this as fact.

By creating books, we create entire worlds that people can live in. We conjure up people from the mysteries of our mind and imagination, characters readers believe in, care about, and treasure.

TMMWriting in journals is a way to track our progress, make peace with our past, and see our thoughts in a way that can finally make sense. For many years, I did morning pages from The Artists Way – three written pages in the morning which is sort of a mind dump. It was amazing the path I discovered through my written words.

And the actual spell? Well, I created a love spell myself. Using the techniques listed in The Book of Spells, somewhat loosely, I made a list of the qualities I needed in my soul mate. I went beyond the surface, meditated, and put the list under my mattress.

I met my husband six months later.

Coincidence? Maybe. I’ve heard others do the same and find their husbands. But perhaps it’s not just a love spell. Perhaps by connecting with what we truly want and need, by putting it out there and writing down the words, we set in chain a motion of events that could lead us to the right one.

Of course, I believe in magic. I’m a writer. I choose this path willingly, and am open to magic.

Are you?

Either way, I hope you enjoy the series and my newest release coming in July, The Marriage Merger!

The Marriage Merger!

Her sisters have found wedded bliss with their wealthy, wonderful dream men, but not Julietta Conte. She’s stayed on terra firma as top executive of the family’s corporation, La Dolce Famiglia bakery. Work is her passion, and her trendy Milan apartment her sanctuary . . . until Sawyer Wells, a masculine masterpiece in a suit, lures her out of hiding with an irresistible offer: an exclusive partnership with his international chain of boutique hotels.

Julietta’s been burned before—and trusting her brother-in-law’s friend, whose powerful gaze alone has her rethinking the best use of a conference room, is the riskiest proposition. But with a once-in-a-career chance to take the bakery global, will she mix stone-cold business with red-hot seduction?

  1. Sandy

    I am so not good at love spells…ask anyone lol. The things I would want to have on my list of wants are: kind heart, good looking to me, financially stable, a family person, can be funny, and love me for me.

  2. Lauren

    Of course I would want Peace on Earth. Then, a spell that would have George Clooney at my beck and call would be next. 🙂

  3. Sharlene Wegner

    Well, I have been married for 22 years, so no recent spells! Hopefully, the original spell keeps working, whatever it was!

  4. Evelyn

    I have never tried to cast a spell but it would be fun to try. My list would consist of a partner that is honest, willingness to share himself, a great sense of humor, and smart.

  5. Arely Z.

    Never tried to cast a spell, but my wants would be kind heart, empathetic, loyal, a little alpha-y, funny, and for us to fit well together (as in, we match each other!)

  6. ki pha

    I have never cast a love spell but if I did would I have to trade something in return? 😉 what would be on the list is: a partner that will only want me in my good and bad days; be fun and loving but of course protective at the same time; of course have humor and brains; and make me tingle all over!

  7. Marina

    I have never cast a love spell but if I could cast one I would want to be financially stable as I am married!!

  8. elena k

    I have never cast a love spell but if i could i would cast for happiness, good health and a nice family. thanks for the giveaway

  9. Anita H.

    Hmm, haven’t cast a love spell before but if I did, I’d want someone with a good heart, smart and tons of fun!

  10. Linda Thum

    Sure ain’t working so far! Quite firmly on the shelf with nary a prospect in sight. I’d wish for my soul mate; & may he be intelligent, capable, strong & be able to put up with me. And with a wicked sense of humor.

  11. Mary Preston

    Knowing my luck, if I tried to cast any sort of spell, of the love variety or any other, it would backfire big time.

  12. Ada

    I’ve always thought maybe I should cast a spell…but knowing my luck, I’d get a goat or something instead of a man LOL I’d want a man that can laugh, smart, confident and knows how to treat a woman right. And if he’s a little nerdy too, that would be so fantastic 😛

  13. Patoct

    I don’t cast any spells. But if I could, it would be peace, no more disease and that all children should be happy. After that a lifetime shopping spree to anywhere that I could get all the books I want. LOL.

  14. Lori Meehan

    I’d cast one that looks for a great sense of humor, respectful person with love of family.

  15. orchid7

    Sure wish I could cast one- Lol!
    But then I’d always be wondering about the truth of emotion. Ah, well!

  16. Tammy Y

    I have never done a love spell. Someone gave me a fertility bell and I got pregnant, then I passed it on.

  17. Tawnya Bentley

    My children claim I cast evil “death spells” on celebrities that annoy me. I think they just have bad luck after I’ve mentioned out loud my dislike of them.
    But if I could cast actual spells, I would love to be debt free, and find out what true love is.

  18. Janice Hougland

    Of course I believe in magic, Jennifer! My spell would be to travel more in the U.S. to see the wonders of our wonderful country…a motor home would be divine for that purpose! 🙂 I realize my hubby and I must maintain our exercise and good health so that we could enjoy the traveling, however. Congrats on your newest release and continued success to you!

  19. Marcy Shuler

    I’ve never tried a spell, but if there were one that would get my hubby and two teen boys to clean up after themselves I’d be a happy woman. Barring that…I’ll take one for Jude Law. LOL

  20. Gmapeony

    I love Jennifer’s books and would be thrilled to win this one. I have never tried a spell. But good health and enjoying each and every day to the fullest is my wish.

  21. Janine

    I’ve never tried a spell. But, if I could, I would want one that makes my husband look at me the way he used to look at me when we first met. I would love to bring back some of the excitement that we used to have too.

  22. Alicia Jespersen

    I would want a man that knows how to be himself, but also has a sense of humor, is handy around the house, and enjoys the outdoors, and is gentle with all living things. I want a spell to bring me a man, hahahahahaha! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  23. Kim Pinch

    If I could I would use a spell to find a dependable, confident guy with a great sense of humor.

  24. Nancy Luebke

    No spells, just a lot of prayers, to have a part of my husband back like he was when we first married about 40 years ago.

  25. Cindy Hamilton

    I don’t think I ever cast a love spell, but my dream one would be a handsome, rich and virile man(LOL)

  26. Deb Liu

    Hmmm. II love my husband but I would have to cast a love spell for Robert Pattinson. haha.

  27. Amanda

    Any “love spell” I cast must have taken a long time to work…I was with my husband for 10 years or so before we got married!
