Description from the publisher:
Fredi is a passionate witch with a scorching hot secret. Every time she has a sexual thought, green fire blasts from her fingertips. Gus is a gorgeous lycan who scares women away with his wild wolf-shifts. Not the best way to find relationships.

Both have vowed not to date until they get themselves under control, but a witchy friend thinks differently. The pair get tricked into sharing a frosty pitcher of “Hoodoo Blue” and fall prey to a wayward love potion that has them blurting out every lustful thought. Worse, it won’t allow them to walk away from each other. They’re stuck together until dawn under the devilish effects of a time-released hoodoo that makes them do outrageous things. For everyone’s safety, Fredi is forced to take Gus home and tie him to her headboard and only some very witchy lovemaking can calm the storm.

Fredi and Gus might find themselves on the set-up date from hell, but even a hilarious cascade of disasters can’t keep a plus-sized blonde witch with attitude, and a hunky lumberjack of a lycan from seeing the other would be the perfect mate.

This is the first book in the Magic and Mayhem series.  There is no cliff-hanger, so I don’t know yet if we will need to read them in order.

This is a short, humorous, sexy story featuring a passionate witch with a temper, a novice witch with good intentions, and a lycan with a moon-lust problem.  Estele, tricks Fredi and Gus into a blind date without even telling them they were going on a date.  She also manages to slip them a little loving spell in their Hoodoo Blue drinks.  The effects are unique and fun for the reader!

I needed a little something light and frivolous to read while I was sick.  This really fit the ticket!  There’s nothing like lots of giggle right out loud moments to take your mind off your own worries.  I think Fredi and I could be good friends.  Hunky Gus is a furball with a heart of gold, especially at the end – le sigh!

This is the first book I have read from Katalina Leon.  We met in a mutual chat group on Facebook and she offered the book to me as a gift.  I truly hope I will be able to read more from her soon.  There are a few titles that have me intrigued just based on the title and my personal quirks.
