Additional Info

Love can be a strange brew, especially for a Witch and Wizard. Tempted beyond her powers, a middle-aged Witch has an unfortunate...tryst...with a mortal man. Bereft and guilty, she tells her husband, who vows to have his own affair. Infuriated and bent on revenge, the Wizard goes to a bar and uses his spectral charms to pick up an unsuspecting woman. He's clever, she's coy. He's urbane, she's not resistant. He's seductive and she's...nothing like his wife. His revenge seems to be exacted. However, when they wake the next morning, she's turned into his wife! The Witch, using some of her own magic, is bound and determined to keep their troubled marriage from falling apart, no matter what it takes. But just how many different women does she have to turn into before her husband realizes what he's throwing away? A magical romantic comedy.
