Never Marry a Warlock
by Marilyn Vix
Catherine walks in on her husband in bed with her best friend. What is a woman to do? It helps that she is a witch. Unfortunately, so is her husband. Before you can say spell battle, Catherine hightails it up the coast of California to clear her head. Lucky for her, she finds an Aussie hitchhiker. She's going to have to face her husband in the awaiting spell battle. Can she have a little fun with her new found boy toy, or will he get scorched in the foreplay?

Throwing money on the table, I grabbed his hand and pulled him from the booth. I led him to the elevator.
“What did you have in mind?” He hit the button and leaned toward me.
“You’ll have to wait and see.” I leaned into his neck and whispered into his ear. “Keeps you guessing.”
“Do I get three guesses?” he whispered back.
“Yes, but you only have until the elevator arrives,” I said, looking at the elevator count down the floors as it came down to pick us up.
“Is it bigger than a bread basket?”
“Yes.” I grinned, moving away to see if my bait was working, and looked back at the numbers. Four, three… Why was it taking so long? I hit the button to get it to move faster.
“Is it smaller than a thimble?”
“That depends on what you do with it.” I smiled at him, as he leaned closer to me again. I could feel his breath near the back of my neck as I still watched the elevator’s progress.
“Is it something that needs a lot of rubbing?” He started to wrap his arms around my waist, grabbing me from behind.
“You can think of yourself as Aladdin. I’m the lamp.”
Never Marry a Warlock by Marilyn Vix is a short, fun story. Perfect to spend an enjoyable hour with.
I really liked the concept of Warlocks and Witches only marrying for one year and then having to decide whether they want to renew their vows or not. I'd have liked to know a bit more about the world, Catherine, the heroine of the story, lived in.
The story consists of Catherine breaking off with her husband, Rich, after she found him in bed with her best friend. She drives around, wanting to bring as much space between them as possible, and picks up a hitchhiker. Attraction sparks between her and the Aussie hitchhiker, and I liked the connection between them.
The story ended on an unexpected twist and I'm hoping the sequel will answer some open questions.
Overall I'm rating Never Marry a Warlock at 4 stars (rounded up) and would recommend it to readers, who like a fast-paced short story.
