Arianna (Ari), a holistic witch, has gone to the Hell’s Ball with a couple of her friends this Halloween night.  And wouldn’t you know it, they are immediately separated and Ari can’t locate them anywhere.  Deciding she needs a drink, Ari heads to the bar and finds an extremely sexy bartender who immediately drives her insane.  Jake is tending bar as part of his cover for the hotel investigations.  Jake turns to find a very, very sexy and adorable butterfly and decides that he is going to get to know her much better.  Ari discovers that Jake is a vampire and she has a strict “no vampire” policy in dating.  As the night goes on, Ari and Jake discover many things, erotic passion and need to begin with, but the most important thing is that they will have to fight for their lives before the night is over.

This Spells Trouble takes place in a Vegas casino and during a time when humans, witches, and other things that go bump in the night get along with each other.  Ari goes to the ball, wanting just to have a good time with her friends and to enjoy the party.  Jake is working and making sure that no one decides to use the ball for something other than having a good time.  Halloween is a night for celebrations, and Ari and Jake discover that some of the celebrations can be deadly.  This Spells Trouble had me shivering from both the erotic sex and the vampire attacks – just in different ways.  I melted as Jake and Ari found a way to solve her problem with being with a vampire and Jake’s immediate agreement to complete it.  I will be placing This Spells Trouble with my favorite Halloween books, but I won’t guarantee to wait until next fall to read it again.
