Can two warlocks be too many?
Yes, if one happens to be your ex-husband trying to kill you for a witch divorce.
The other, a sexy Aussie that makes you forget all the rest.
That’s Catherine Bank’s warlock problem. She will have to choose between the two of them. Will she marry either, or end it all in a spell battle that will bring Las Vegas to its knees. Only time will tell. No one knows the mind of a witch better than herself. Unless, she falls in love.

Excerpt: From Chapter 1 of Never Cross A Warlock
“What would you like me to concentrate on today?”
I lowered my face into the little hole in the headrest of the massage table and let out a small groan. “If you could rub out those knots in my back, that would be great.”
Yes, there was only one place to go when things were rocky with any man, especially if that man just tried to kill you. The spa. The key to solving all of your problems, or at least to get to that Zen moment of realization, is to get a full spa treatment.
That’s how I found myself at one of the best spas in Vegas—face down on a massage table, trying to achieve some kind of relative state of peace to figure out how to deal with my current man problems.
I exhaled as my masseuse rubbed out an especially tight knot. “You have a lot of tension in your back.” The masseuse’s voice sounded concerned as she used her elbow to release that difficult knot.
“Tell me about it. I can sum up why with one word: warlocks.”
She chuckled and gave extra attention to the knot on my shoulder. “I hear you. Just takes one warlock to ruin your balance.”
“In my case several.”
“Oh, that’s a problem to have.” She laughed and rubbed down my back in small circles. The smell of the lavender oil created a cloud of forgetfulness.
“I figured a spa trip would give me the Zen frame of mind to sort it all out.”
“You’ve come to the right place. How much pressure do you need?”
“Heavy. Enough to rub out my memories.”
She answered with a rigorous attack down the back of my thigh, moving in a smoothing line down my hamstring. I was put into a spell of bliss. I’d asked for a massage specialist for witches, and I could sense the healing energy running through me. God, I needed this. I let her work me over, the scent of lavender joined by rosemary as she eased my tired, battered muscles—and with them, my emotions—into some sort of balance.
My mind started to wander as her magical hands kneaded out my kinks. If only she could rub out the kinks in my heart. Jeff, my current large knot of a warlock, was better than I imagined. Thoughts of him had actually saved my ass from the succubus stripper that had attacked me last night. Yet, I was still feeling that non-committal vibe—again. I just didn’t want to jump into something right after the huge betrayal my ex-husband was laying on me. Well, soon to be ex. If we didn’t renew our vows by tomorrow, we’d be officially split. The only other alternative was a quick divorce witch-and-warlock style. Meaning, I’d have to hide so he didn’t try to kill me.
Trust me. Never cross a warlock. Divorce for us was usually a lightning bolt to the forehead. Whoever has the fastest spell blast at the other wins everything. Till death do you part is literal in our case.
