"A not-to-be-missed hilarious romp through San Francisco harboring witches, magic, a to-die-for Djinn, and some very sexy vampires you'd love to have bite your neck." (NYT Bestseller Jennifer Skully)

"It's a cute, funny book. I got a kick out of a vampire who is phobic of germs and has to have wet wipes and hand sanitizer on hand. Then there's the djinn who absolutely hates all vampires and is trying to commit suicide, then meets said phobic vampire who is determined to save him - he falls in love with her and ends up falling in love with her and making friends with her "family." Meanwhile, she has a vampire that she's known for a few years who plays the field that's fallen in love with her who's trying to prove it. Now she's trying to choose! Meanwhile there's some evil witches trying the bind the djinn, kill our phobic vampire, and generally causing mayhem. Join the fun! LOL"
