This series keeps getting better. Always a good sign, IMO. I was very happy to see that Anita is capable of having romantic feelings for someone, and was not surprised at all that it was with someone of the not-so-human persuasion. Practicing magic, after all, is not-so-typical for the human race. I must admit to wishing that her squishy, UST-type feelings were for Jean-Claude, however. His character irks me to no end, but I can't deny his charm. At least we know that there is a possible future relationship there...when Richard proposed and Anita said, "Yes", I had an OH NO! moment.
