Although it was discovered how to combine physics and sorcery over a half-century ago, not all states have passed laws that makes it legal to practice. Even though Petra Field doesn't have a magical bone in her body, her parents are both powerful wizards so she had to move to a place where magic is acceptable. She calls a wizard agency to remove the magical bloodstain from her carpet.

When Vorador answers Petra's cry for help, he's more interested in the woman than the rug. The wizard tries to remove the bloodstain only to find a hole in the floor under the rug that leads to the Hotel California in another dimension. Vorador realizes that Petra's cat is the sister of his partner's lover. Someone placed an amnesia spell on her so she doesn't recall who tried to murder her sibling. Petra stubbornly needs to find out who bewitched her carpet while Vorador prefers she keeps out of it so she stays safe. Both of these wannabe lovers are in danger from a powerful wizard who hides in plain sight.

Garthia Anderson has written an enjoyable romantic urban fantasy that will appeal to fans of Rosemary Edgehill and Jody Lynn Nye. On an earth where magic works, readers will want to believe in the fantasy. The protagonists squabbles are a form of foreplay that add a piquant sense of humor to the story line. It is to be hoped that Ms. Anderson will write more stories in this fascinating universe.
