Lingerie shop owner Stasi knew she shouldn’t put a repulsion spell in the sachet she sold to Carrie, even if she is the meanest man user in town. She expected Carrie to be mad, but a lawsuit in Wizard’s Court? Her lawyer, Trevor Barnes, can try to get a settlement, but she intends to fight the suit—although she didn’t plan on having to counter the way Trevor makes her tingle. Wisdom continues her series (50 Ways to Hex Your Lover, 2008; Hex Appeal, 2008) with new focal characters but the same wicked witchery; oddball, otherworldly supporting cast; and steamy relationships. --Nina C. Davis

I do love Jazz's books (the first two in the series) but Stasi's book is what really captured me. We met Stasi along with her best friend Blair when they were conducting their moon rituals with Jazz or coming to Jazz's aid. This time we get a deeper look into not only Stasi but their history and her relationship with Blair. Stasi is a true romantic and is determined to help others find it in their lives with 'special' touches in the items she sells in her lingerie shop. When one of these purchases backfires on her, she is served with papers informing her of the case that has been filed against her. When Trev, a warlock, takes on the case on behalf of the mortal who is seeking to ruin Stasi, he never thought he would meet a witch who would capture him so strongly. Things get a little heated and out of hand in this little tourist town and many things are not what they seem. Trev has a choice of keeping his distance or jumping in with both feet and helping Stasi get her life back to some semblance of normal with the troubling happenings going on. We still get to see some of our beloved characters such as Jazz, Nick, Fluff & Puff, Krebs, and even Irma. This book has so much adventure and mystery, not to mention plenty of passion and romance, that it has so far become my favorite. Stasi has always been the calm and steady one of the witches but she is about to come out of her shell with a bang. This is a wonderful series to read and I highly recommend it. Warning: some explicit content.
Stasi, a 700+ year-young with owns a small boutique in a small California mountain town. She and her friend and fellow witch Blair, keep returning to the town that they love.
Things are great. Mortals know about the existence of witches, and the fears of the long-ago Salem Witch Trials are a thing of the past...the new, enlightened society doesn't fear witches, for heavens' sake-or do they?
When Stasi puts a little extra in a sachet in the purchase Carrie makes, the sparks and hearts fly. Stasi gets a letter informing her that the despicable Carrie is suing her for alienation of affection. She blames Stasi for husband # four leaving her. She takes her case to Wizard attorney Trevor Barnes. Trevor, believing the conniving Carrie takes the case and goes to meet the witch.
Remember those hearts? Cupid apparently has a sense of distorted humor, as the hearts Stasi and he see can mean only one thing-they are meant to be together.
While Stasi is attracted sexually to Trevor, how can she even consider Trevor when he's the attorney helping Carrie ruin her good name?
If all that isn't enough, something strange is going on in their happy lake town. The people start acting strange and their peaceful lake has been tainted by ancient magicks. Trevor and Staci, along with their friends set out to find the problem.
You will enjoy the return of Jazz and Nick from 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover and the antics of the bunny slippers, Huff and Puff...oh, and did I mention the cursed gargoyle, Horace and the were-border collie, Jake?
This story is a fun read and will keep you guessing til the end. The story is a fun read, with just a tad bit of mystery tossed in. I always enjoy paranormal/urban fantasy love stories. This book has a more chick lit feel than the old traditional Harlequin book, which is what makes it a 5 star read by a very prolific, charming author any reader will want to add to their collection of favorites.
Be sure to find the others that are somewhat connected, Demon Does It Better (Demons) Hex Appeal Hex in High Heels (Jazz Tremaine)Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend A Demon Does It Better the Demon books also contain the witchy women!
I liked the conflict the witches faced although I did wonder why it took them so long to figure out what was obvious immediately to the reader. Ms. Wisdom does have a great sense of humor and although her books aren't laugh out loud funny, I have to admit to having a smile on my face while reading.
