What CAN'T a girl do when she knows magic?


Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three.

She's working as a librarian, trapped in absurd period costumes and serving up expensive lattes, all in an effort to keep her employer's budget in the black. She has a desperate crush on her Imaginary Boyfriend, Jason Templeton, a professor who regularly uses her library. Her doting grandmother is determined to reunite her with her long-absent mother. And now she's been told that the library can't pay her a well-deserved raise instead, she can live for free in an ancient, dusty cottage on the library grounds.

When Jane settles into her new, allergen-infested home, she discovers a hidden chamber lined with ancient books a world-class collection on witchcraft. She begins to read a spellbook, never suspecting that she has the power to work actual magic.

Her first spell awakens a smart-mouthed feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men, starting with her geeky, shy co-worker.

Those magical workings attract the attention of the local coven, specifically the warder David Montrose. Jane resents David's interference even as she watches her powers spiral out of control. Before long, Jane doesn't know who she should listen to: her well-meaning grandmother, her down-to-earth best friend, her bitchy familiar, her besotted co-worker, her coming-around Imaginary Boyfriend, or her overbearing astral enforcer.

The sequel, SORCERY AND THE SINGLE GIRL, will be out October 2007.
