A hexed wizard. A reformed succubus. LA’s supernatural underground will never be the same …
UCLA sophomore François Lemieux had thought his biggest challenge would be scoring a summer internship. Everything changes, though, when a trio of vampires tries to run his car off the road. He’s saved by a mysterious, heavily armed girl named Cassie Chu, but his troubles are far from over.
It turns out Cassie is a succubus who works for the Supernatural Intelligence Agency. She informs François that he’s a wizard who was hexed at birth to prevent him from casting spells. If that weren’t enough, evil forces in a magical underground he never knew existed are out for his blood. To survive, François partners up with the beautiful yet eccentric Cassie to learn the ins and outs of magic. He barely has a chance to study the basics when a prominent alchemist goes missing and a destructive power falls into the wrong hands.
If François and Cassie can’t track down the alchemist in time, the new world he’s grown to love may soon come to a bitter end …

Here is a query letter that gives another description of the book:
I’d like to introduce TRUE MAGIC. It tells the story of college student François Lemieux, who discovers he’s a wizard after meeting a charming succubus at a house party in the Hollywood Hills.
Until then, François had always been content with his ordinary life. He got decent grades, played Xbox with his roommates, and had an inexplicably attractive girlfriend. Yet after a trio of seductive vampires tries to kill him at a swanky modeling party, his average life takes a dramatic turn toward the extraordinary.
Enter Cassie Chu, a beautiful and eccentric succubus employed by the mysterious Supernatural Intelligence Agency. She is tasked with protecting François while together they unravel the mystery of his true identity—as well as why an evil sorcerer is hell-bent on assassinating him.
In the meantime, François still has to go to class. His life becomes an increasingly chaotic whirlwind of midterms, magic, a girlfriend who is possibly cheating on him, and a lascivious succubus with whom he is definitely falling in love.
TRUE MAGIC is an upbeat and humorous urban fantasy novel that runs 81,000 words and is best described as “Rivers of London” meets “James Bond.”
