NEVER, EVER, LIE TO A WARLOCK

He never promised happily ever after, but Lucinda is still dismayed by how quickly reality intrudes on her fairy tale. Assassination attempts and lightning strikes disturb her honeymoon, but the return home brings no peace of mind. When the discovery of a magical conspiracy shakes her faith in everything she trusts, she vows to expose the Fire Warlock’s most shameful secret and see justice done. 

As a hot summer draws towards a violent end, Lucinda teeters between terror and rage. She’d be less angry about risking her life if she didn’t suspect her husband – her hero! – intends to step aside and let her die.

For those who haven’t read the magic of Book 1 of the series, The Locksmith, it can be found in all good bricks and mortar and online stores.
