Catherine walks in on her husband in bed with her best friend. What is a woman to do? It helps that she is a witch. Unfortunately, so is her husband. Before you can say spell battle, Catherine hightails it up the coast of California to clear her head. Lucky for her, she finds an Aussie hitchhiker. She’s going to have to face her husband in the awaiting spell battle. Can she have a little fun with her new found boy toy, or will he get scorched in the foreplay?

Throwing money on the table, I grabbed his hand and pulled him from the booth. I led him to the elevator.
“What did you have in mind?” He hit the button and leaned toward me.
“You’ll have to wait and see.” I leaned into his neck and whispered into his ear. “Keeps you guessing.”
“Do I get three guesses?” he whispered back.
“Yes, but you only have until the elevator arrives,” I said, looking at the elevator count down the floors as it came down to pick us up.
“Is it bigger than a bread basket?”
“Yes.” I grinned, moving away to see if my bait was working, and looked back at the numbers. Four, three… Why was it taking so long? I hit the button to get it to move faster.
“Is it smaller than a thimble?”
“That depends on what you do with it.” I smiled at him, as he leaned closer to me again. I could feel his breath near the back of my neck as I still watched the elevator’s progress.
“Is it something that needs a lot of rubbing?” He started to wrap his arms around my waist, grabbing me from behind.
“You can think of yourself as Aladdin. I’m the lamp.”
The excerpt I posted above totally captures the awesome humor and steaminess of this book! I expected a strictly paranormal book and got so much more while I was reading it. I loved the give and take between Catherine and her “Aussie Hitchhiker”. After the huge blow of finding her husband with her best friend she needs a little fun and TLC. Problem is after running away from her hotheaded soon to be ex, she is always looking over shoulder. In walks the Aussie to the rescue. From the moment he arrives the pages start steaming and the action really starts. For a debut novel, this one is stellar. I can’t wait to see where the author goes with this series. She did so awesome with the novella, I am anxious to read a full book!
