But they can have fun, especially if their lover belongs to another woman! So when Gillian discovers handsome new neighbour Shep Henderson is the fiancée of an old college nemesis, she promptly puts the befuddled publisher under her spell. But while her sex hex may have heated up Shep's heart, it has also unthawed her own, leading to a romantic complication that not even Pyewacket - Gillian's mind-reading cat - could have foreseen...
