The daughter of a practicing sorcerer takes out a personal ad for a man who can discuss botany and attracts Herb, an unsuspecting Vegan who has grown bored with his comfortable life

Blackwell North Amer
Herb Moss is a Vegan: a member of a genetically engineered species, part human and part plant, living on the planet New World. Herb's bored. Surely, he thinks, a little romantic correspondence on the side can do no harm...
Meanwhile, far away on the planet New Land, a nice young woman named Spring is feeling anything but bored. She just wishes she were. She's been living with her widowed father, Gabriel, a practicing sorcerer. But Gabriel has discovered hitherto-unknown magical secrets that can bring their possessor great riches, absolute power, and forbidden knowledge. To keep them safe, he's sorcerously locked them deep within his daughter's mind, where only her own true love - or, failing that, someone she likes a lot - can access them.
When Gabriel is killed under suspicious circumstances, Spring flees to the austere Order of Companions. There, grieving and lonely, she places a personal ad, looking for a pen pal with whom she can discuss botany. Little does she know that she's actually placed an ad in Play Plant magazine, and that her new pen pal, Herb, thinks she's interested in romance.
Meanwhile, an ambitious wizard has learned of the existence of Spring's secrets. And he'll do anything to get them ... including the obvious.
