Rachel has a hard time with men: if she falls in love with
them, they betray, leave or die on her. She even has a
difficult time with non-humans in male packages: her
business partner, Jenks, keeps telling her what to do, her
gargoyle, Bis, is still so young that he falls asleep
during the day, her "frenemy," Trent, would like to either
kill her or buy her services, and her demon-teacher-master,
Al, well, he wants her eternal servitude.
Maybe Rachel should stick to only hanging out with women,
except that invites a host of other problems: Ivy, her

the coven that has officially shunned Rachel for being a

technically. Rachel would do anything to protect her
friends, but the best protection she can give would seem to
be to cross every line she ever drew for herself.

emotion-laden, and well-written, BLACK MAGIC SANCTION does

exhausted for Rachel and her action-packed life.

banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both
witch and bounty hunter—and lived to tell the tale. But
she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now.
Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black
magic, her best hope is life imprisonment—at worst, a forced
lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong
enough to help her win her freedom, but trust comes hard
when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack,
the demon Algaliarept, and an ex-boyfriend turned thief.
It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a
