"This book was such fun to read!"

Petra W. Field had the ill fortune to be born to two powerful wizards when she doesn't have a magical bone in her body. As a matter of fact, magic generally goes haywire when she's around. So what is she doing in the wizard capital of the world, Seattle? Just because she doesn't have any magic doesn't mean she can't live without it.

She decides to have a little get-together at her new home for her work crowd but there's just one tiny problem. The new rug she bought at a flea market has a magical bloodstain in it and she has to get it out fast. She calls Rapid Renovations but they have her on hold too long and when her doorbell rings, Dugan from Emerald Renaissance Garments stands there. She invites him in because she really needs to get that bloodstain out NOW!

Dugan recognizes the rug and can't figure out how in the world Petra comes to have it in her home. He calls his top wizard, Vorador. Vorador and Petra absolutely rub each other the wrong way from the very first but the more they have to work together the more they want to be together, but first they must figure this mystery out.

There is so much more to this story. There are little ins and outs and subtle nuances that just had me rolling in the floor. Vorador has an affinity to fire so any fire reference that comes out of Petra's mouth does very strange things. Imagine what 'Great balls of fire' does. Oh my, what a mental picture that was!

I thoroughly enjoyed Garthia Anderson's foray into wizards and wizardry. I sincerely hope she will give us more stories along this vein as I know I will be one of the first begging for them!

Debut Novel

With enchanted blood on her carpet, a house full of Merlin-wannabes unable to clean it up, a petulant cat, and houseguests scheduled to arrive momentarily, Petra Field needs a miracle. She gets a wizard, a whole lot of unwanted sparks, and a man-sized hole in the middle of her living room—a hole into which her feline promptly disappears. Vorador hasn't felt so incompetent since his days as an untried sorcerer. The girl who leaps after her cat and into his arms causes his simplest spells to backfire—quite literally setting his hair ablaze. And though she claims to be no conjurer, he knows that he's never felt so bewitched, for Petra has a mesmerizing energy of her own: love.
