"Sparks fly when a love charm goes awry, and Stasi finds herself in a preternatural lawsuit matching wits with devastatingly handsome wizard attorney Trevor Barnes. Then mysterious magic from an unknown enemy threatens to turn Stasi's quiet town into a modern day Salem, and Stasi's witchy friends from long ago gather for the fight. They need Trevor's powerful help. But every witch knows you can't trust a wizard, and soon Stasi is fighting for her life and ...more
This book focused mostly around Stasi and Trevor but it was made obvious that the author would later give us more on Blake and Jazz. I think Ms. Wisdom did a great job of introduction of her characters and letting you in on who they really are. the humor was my favorite. A witch that hiccups bubbles when she is nervous, including during sex, ...more
Carrie is mighty peeved that her husband has left her for another woman and blames Stasi and to enact her revenge hires a wizard lawyer, Trevor Barnes, to take Stasi to ...more

Trevor is a Wizard Attorney. He's outraged when he gets a complaint from mortal Carrie regarding a witch, Stasi, misusing her power and immediately takes the case.
When Trever finds his way to her lingerie store, she is shocked to discover his head circled by hearts--apparently Cupid has a warped sense of humor! Witches and Wizards simply don't mix--and this wizard is t ...more
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 ...more
This was cute, but not as funny as the first two. I did enjoy the plug Wisdom gave Vicki Lewis Thompson's Nerd series.
It was clear fairly early on who the real culprits were, ...more
Everyone knows that Witches and Wizards do not mix. So when Trevor Barnes determines that the witch his client is intent on suing has not yet retained council, h ...more

Witch Stasi Romanov slipped a little something extra in a client who wanted her husband to come crawling back . . Naturally Moonshine has more human than supe inhabitants and its Stasi's luck that, Carrie, is of the human variety and she's spared no expense to get law attorney and wizard, Trevor Barnes to represent her in her suit. Her demands are quite reasonable in her mind totally stripping of Stasi's evil power ...more
I didn't like the pace at which this book started, it seemed a little scattered and it was moving at a lightening pace. Things were happening too quickly but I came back to it a week later when I started taking my Kindle to the gym with me.
The storyline was great, I thought it was fantastic and I'm glad Li ...more
The novel felt really rushed. Why do paranormal authors feel the need to put sex in? It's not even good sex, it's the sort of sex that makes you want someone else around so you can share the cringing at it. It really puts me off - I shan't be buying any more by LW.
This was meant to be a light fluffy relaxing read for me - if I'd had it in actual book format rather than ...more
This was a very cute book, and I have to admit that I like Stasi better than Jazz; she's a lot more low-key but still fun. The growing unrest in the town was quite bothersome, and very full of tension. I di ...more
On the other hand ... it reads slow for me ... I'm not sure why ... I just get bored at certain points. The plot and trying to figure out what's going on seems to out shine the romance, which is fine ... but the r ...more
I loved the first book in this series, and was bummed out when my library didn't have the second one. However they did have this one, which follows Stasi instead of Jazz.
Once again, the author made me fall in love with her characters. Even though the insta-love was annoying, I really enjoyed being back with these witches and their friends. I think these books are just so cute and fun!
My library doesn't carry any more of these books, but hopefully I can track some down one ...more
For my full review, click here.
I find it amusing that the glowing "review" comments on the cover (front and back) are a) by authors whose work I didn't like, and/or b) by Wisdom's friends.
Me? Cynical about marketing? Why do you ask?
My witch series has also been optioned to be shopped around as a TV series or movie. So here's hoping!
