Can two warlocks be too many?
Yes, if one happens to be your ex-husband trying to kill you for a witch divorce.
The other, a sexy Aussie that makes you forget all the rest.
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 high tails 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 newfound boy toy, or will he get scorched in the foreplay?
But nothing turns out as you think. Catherine runs to Las Vegas with Jeff finding her feelings for him the saving grace from the dangers of Las Vegas. Confused between her husband cheating and a new addition to her heart, she will have to choose between the two of them. Will she marry either, or end it all in a spell battle that will bring Las Vegas to its knees. Only time will tell. No one knows the mind of a witch better than herself. Unless, she falls in love.
This box set includes the novelette titles:
Never Marry A Warlock
Never Fall For A Warlock
Never Cross A Warlock
Never Marry A Warlock:
Never Fall For A Warlock:
Never Cross A Warlock:
Excerpt from beginning of Never Marry A Warlock:
My husband’s arms were wrapped around her naked body. The blankets were strewn and interwoven between their legs. He was spooning her with his biceps draped over her. I stood in the doorway taking in the scene of my husband and my best friend. It was the end of the world, at least for me. But I wasn’t going to take it lying down. I should have known better than to have married a warlock.
I hit him with a force spell that knocked him up against the headboard. He fell back down and braced his hands out to catch his fall. Cassandra scrambled out of the bed, dragging the silk comforter with her. Bitch. She better get out of my way. She was next.
Rich was naked as he sat up to look at me. Normally, the abs-flash trick would work. But not now. I was too pissed off. I knew what spells he used to look like that. It was easy to fool a mortal and ex-best friend on the floor. But not me. Thing is, we were too evenly matched. I think that was the problem.
He threw a counter spell that lanced light through my arm, digging into the flesh as it tried to anchor and link me to him. I flicked out a removal spell that broke the connection, laced my hands together, and hit him with a burst of everything I had. He went flying backward, through the window into the pool. It was satisfying to watch. He tried to rise up and hover toward me, but I knocked him back in the water with another force spell.
He yelled from the pool. His wavy, brown hair trenched with water. “Baby, we can talk it out. It’s just a moment of weakness. You’ve had them with mortals.”
I’d drown him if he couldn’t breathe water. Blowing up the six-million-dollar house probably wouldn’t kill him either. Like I said, never marry a warlock. I shot another burst of energy, creating a field that pushed him under. He swam back up and came to the side, with both chiseled arms on the edge of the pool. His brown eyes tried to melt my insides. I wasn’t going to let him win again.
I walked through the window ledge, broken glass crackling under my heels. “It’s over Rich. Just over. I’m done with playing the games, or sharing you with the next mortal you pick up. Really, when I said my vows, it was forsaking everyone. Including mortals.”
“I haven’t touched another witch in ages, Catherine. Really. Scout’s honor.”
I blasted him into the pool again. Rich came up from the bottom, laughing. He swam back to the side and got out. He walked toward me with glistening, rock-hard muscles. I fought down the attraction, along with the writhing anger. Maybe blowing him up was too good for him. Slow, painful death. Maybe.

Where are you from? San Francisco Bay Area
Tell us your latest news? I’m releasing my Beware of Warlocks novelette series as a box set. I’m very excited to see the full work all together. It is now finally complete and book length. I’m hoping everyone will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
When and why did you begin writing? I’ve been obsessed with writing since I was 10. My fifth grade teacher assigned me to write an assignment on Daniel Boone, and after talking to my grandmother, I found out I was related to him. It was my first research for an article, and putting a little of myself in my writing made it come alive for me. I would get a high at creating something exciting and could control what would happen. Writing is the best drug. Everything falls away while I write, and I feel complete.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? When I submitted my first short story to Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Fantasy Magazine. I received my first rejection letter, and she even added personal comments to keep going even though my story didn’t make the magazine. I felt like I was a real writer with my first rejection letter, and it was from one of my favorite fantasy writers.
What inspired you to write your first book? I wanted to live the dream to be a writer. I thought, why not now? I’ve never looked back. I hate to sit on the sidelines. I like to do it for real. Never put anything off is always a good way to live.
Do you have a specific writing style? I feel it’s a bit chick lit and personable, similar to what Jane Austin does in her novels. I like to write prose that gets into a character’s mind and relates to the reader. So I tend to love writing in the first person a lot. I’ve been playing with changing Point of View in a storytelling lately. It might come out in the new Beware of Vampire series I’m working on. We’ll have to see.
How did you come up with the title? I played around with some of the ideas of what happened in the opening scene of Never Marry A Warlock. I thought about what would be going through Cat’s mind as she battled her husband after finding him in bed with her best friend which of course would be: “Never Marry A Warlock”.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? I think whatever message a reader gets from the book is the message you should get. If I tell you, it will spoil all the work I’ve done. Best thing to do is read my book and you can tell me the message. That’s my reward.
How much of the book is realistic? Well, some of the things that Catherine goes through, like going to Vegas and what she experiences there are from my trips to the town. I also love traveling around California, and those moments have snuck in through Catherine’s driving wanderings as she is sorting herself before meeting Jeff. The world of witches is based on my imagination and inspiration from the TV show “Bewitched”.
What books have most influenced your life most? The first fantasy book I read was The Fellowship of The Ring. From there I moved to Anne McCaffrey and her Dragonriders of Pern. I discovered Anne Rice in college and feel in love with Lestat. I loved her Mayfair witches series too.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I would totally hope to choose Anne Rice. She just opened up the whole world of paranormal ideas in my mind. Reading her biography helped inspire me to become serious about my writing.
What book are you reading now? I’m currently addicted to erotic romance serials on Kindle Unlimited. I’ve been reading a lot of Hannah Ford’s lately.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? I like Bella Andre and Vivi Anna. Monique Martin helped get me more interested in Indie paranormal romance ebooks.
What are your current projects? I’ve been working on a Time Travel Romance novel called Everything For Love and I’ve completed a full New Adult Romance on Wattpad called Saving My Heart. I’m starting a new series called Beware of Vampires that will be featuring Catherine’s friend, Cassandra.
What would you like my readers to know? Come enter one of my book worlds and find your new book boyfriend. I like to create hot, bad boys that are not your usual alpha billionaire hero. From vampires to warlocks, these men are beyond bad. They’re dangerous. Visit my website at: marilynvix.com.
