"Whimsical, Enchanting Tale"
Though only springtime, the air conditioner in her new
home - store, a nineteenth century Creole townhouse in the
French Quarter of New Orleans, has failed her. Jamie
Sullivan searches for an extension cord in the attic, an
area she and her to partners had no time to clean up
before, as they concentrated on opening the bookstore-
restaurant. In the attic, Jamie notices an old trunk that
she cannot resist looking into, with visions of treasure
dancing in her mind. The cache turns out to be Mardi Gras
junk, with the exception of an antique sword. She almost
kills the suddenly appearing man who looks like a pirate.
Sebastian Valentin insists that Jamie holds the "Sword of
Hearts". Furthermore, he guarantees that she and her two
compatriots will soon find true love. Besides wondering how
this lunatic got into her home, Jamie insists she only
needs an extension cord, not true love. Soon Sebastian
and Jamie begin to fall in love, a violation of the rules
of the genie union.

this hunk of a magical being.
Donna Kauffman writes a genial enchanting tale that will
enthrall sub-genre fans
with the quest to find more of the author's whimsical
