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
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.
