Passion Potion: A New Adult Paranormal Romance (The Golden Enchanters), by Mary Beth DanielsI knew the day wasn't going well when the ferret started to talk.

Dad insists that I'm a witch, but I have no idea how to make a cauldron boil, much less get an eye from a newt. And apparently this potion we have to make for the Supreme Bad Dude is the one that exploded and killed my mother a year ago.
