The next chapter in an original and fun light paranormal series from an award-winning author whose readership is building… Judi Fennell builds a world where genies grant three wishes, but of course every wish comes with complications!

Sourcebooks Casablanca is pleased to present Genie Knows Best by award-winning author Judi Fennell (ISBN9781402241901; Mass Market Paperback; $6.99 U.S. / £4.99 UK; Romance; November 2011).

“The nonstop cinematic gee-whiz results will keep the reader enraptured… Sultry sex scenes, a bubble-gum-sweet but passionate romance, quick-moving action, and a variety of puns and riddle-making beasts.”
Publishers Weekly Starred Review of I Dream of Genies

“Fennell’s sexy contemporary romp… takes its cue from Barbara “Eden’s indelible television role, but with enough original touches, careful research, and world building to make this tale—the first in a trilogy set around jinn wrongly accused under an archaic legal system—pure fun.”
Booklist on I Dream of Genies

After dumping her cheating fiancé, Samantha Blaine jets off on her romantic honeymoon in Casablanca (she paid for it, after all!) alone. But when she purchases an antique lantern in a bazaar, she also purchases the genie bound to it by a nasty curse…

Cursed by his mortal lover, Kal has spent centuries trying to track down the lantern that is the key to his release from servitude. Kal is stunned when the lantern turns up in a bazaar in Casablanca, and the beautiful woman who is now his new “master.”

But Kal isn’t the only magical being looking for the lantern and soon Samantha and Kal are on the run from dark magic. Through it all, Kal’s attraction for Samantha grows stronger, but it’s her pure heart that captures his soul and he begins to think that maybe spending a lifetime serving Samantha is the best thing that’s ever happened to him…
