Normally, genies grant wishes, but Cala Lowery needs a few granted herself. If she doesn’t find a new master before the Queen of the Jinn finds her, she'll be auctioned off on eBay®... again.
Cursed by the Queen for supposedly flirting with the King, Cala’s auctioned off to the highest bidder on eBay®. Her luck fails when her master trades her in for a “upgrade”. She’s thrust into the world of humans with dwindling magical abilities which often misfire. Cala begins a desperate search for a new master to regain her powers and avoid being auctioned off for a second humiliating time.
Her new job as an Entertainment Editor and Myster e-Dater for a newspaper’s online dating site brings in plenty of candidates, gives her a taste of independence, and reunites her with the victim of her one-night-stand, Lee.
Lee forgives Cala for an incident with a leaky pepper spray can during their first meeting. Their relationship skyrockets, until Cala finds herself struggling to keep her career and potential new master, when someone tries to sabotage her column and expose her identity to Lee, who happens to have a secret identity himself.
“Glowing Green or Brilliant Blue?” I’d never used a condom before. But tonight, in this little trendy bar, I was determined to find someone who could put on one hell of a laser light show for me.
The voice of my 4800-year-old Grandma Johara blasted through the alcohol-induced fog in my head. “Cala! Nice jinn just don’t do things like that!”
Somehow, her reprimand didn’t hold as much weight anymore, since Grandpa burned out, literally. Jinn are creatures born of fire, who live among humans for about 6,000 years, and then blow out like a candle.I dug around in my purse for some change and thought, “Well, Grandma Johara never found Grandpa in a restaurant, fishing an olive from the cleavage of a brunette Playboy Bunny-jinn! She would have turned him into a boil on somebody’s ass.”
