This was a great story! It contains everything a reader wants romance, suspense, action, adventure, a variety of solid characters and humor. While the story would make me laugh there were times when I would have unshed tears. The variety of characters make it really exciting since you will see witches, warlocks, werewolfs, vampires, fairies and even ghosts.

Jolie starts out as a normal everyday girl who realizes she is a witch when she is hired by Rand, a very handsome Warlock; to discover the murder of a now ghost. Jolie did not realize how much her life would change once she met Rand. Jolie's character evolves into a more mature powerful person or in this case witch. Throughout her journey Jolie has to leave family and her country behind, have a small fling with a handsome and dark werewolf only to realize that she has very strong feelings for Rand, that could even be love. However Jolie is not the only one struggling with their feelings, Rand has to fight against his for fear or ruining anything and in this process they both make mistakes.

There is much more to this story than Rand and Jolie's relationship which is what makes it the perfect blend between PNR and Urban Fantasy. If you like Lynsay Sands, Gena Showalker, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Armintrout then you will definitely love H.P. Mallory and the adventures of Jolie.

I enjoyed reading this book, and plan on reading the sequel, but I must say that it was NOT what I expected. Looking at the cover art, I was expecting a very light, frivolous paranormal humor/romance/fantasy story, the kind that would make me chuckle or even laugh out loud. This wasn't that way at all. The storyline was very good, and the characters were well-rounded, but there really wasn't a lot of 'funny' in it. There was some humor, and a few places where the situations the characters got themselves into were humorous. It's probably just me, and the old adage to not judge a book by its cover should have come into play. As I said, an enjoyable story, but don't look for it to be the type of story to make you laugh right out loud. The subtitle, A Paranormal Romance' is really true - the book was a light romance with a good dose of paranormal thrown in.

Jolie Wilkins had been content with her little life, running a shop in L.A. with her best friend Christa and using her abilities to read auras and glimpse futures to provide the business that supported them both. Then she saw the ghost - her first, actually, and soon after her life didn't resemble anything she recognized.

That wasn't the ghost's fault, at least not directly. It was more the influence of one ultra-sexy warlock Rand Balfour, who sent the ghost to Jolie as a test of her powers. And then told her she was a witch. A powerful one. She didn't believe it, of course, but when she brought the ghost back from the dead - purely by accident, really - she knew her life was forever changed. And she had Rand to thank, so to speak, for it.

Unfortunately, Jolie's gift paints a big target on her back and soon a power hungry witch of age and skill tries to coerce Jolie into her service as she gathers forces to lead a charge to become Queen of the Underworld, and only Rand stands between the powerful Bella and the timid Jolie. She has to rely on the warlock to teach her, employ her to keep her safe, and to move her from Bella's territory to his own in England. And while her previously neat little life spins wildly out of control and her attraction to Rand grows into heated intensity, Jolie struggles to get a handle on the use of her powers, as they may be the only thing that will save her from the myriad of things that go bump in the night...creatures all who seem to be out to use her as a pawn in a deadly game of war and supremacy.

Despite my appreciation for the concept of this story and the many positive reviews on several different sites, I was horribly disappointed in this book.

"I want you too, Rand." It seemed like a simple math problem-if Jolie wants Rand and Rand wants Jolie, then, logically, that should equal sex.

One of my many favorite lines from this book. HP Mallory is a joy to read. Not only for her wonderful characters, but her ability to tell a story and convey emotions with her words. When it comes to writing romantic and sexy characters this author could write the book on it <G>. Wonderful read, not only this book, but her other series as well (To Kill A Warlock). You will not be disappointed with this author.

A very entertaining story. I enjoyed reading about the characters and about the complex world of magic the author created.

Jolie Wilkins leads a pretty normal life. That is right until the day sexy warlock Rand Balfour (a male witch) comes into her life. He needs her help to solve a crime and seems to know more about Jolie and her abilities than she does. She is attracted to him and he also seems to feel something for her. Jolie agrees to help Rand but doesn't know that this decision will change her life completly.
It turns out that Jolie is a witch herself with the unique talent to bring back the dead. Because of her skill many people are interested in Jolie. Rand wants a normal life for her but when the witch Bella decides that she wants Jolie he sees no other chance but to take under his protection.
What started as an exciting discovery for Jolie develops into a serious fight for her life. In the end Jolie needs to trust in her own power if she wants to survive.

I don't know if this book is Urban Fantasy ot Paranormal Romance but what I know is that I enjoyed reading it. The story is very entertaining and at the beginning light-hearted. I enjoyed the change to a more darker story throughout the book and liked that the characters got time to develop. Jolie is a great heroine and how she handled being a witch was believable. I enjoyed seeing how she got stronger and stronger. Her relationship with Rand is complicated and I want to know how it will continue. I guess Rand still has still some secrets to share with her.
The world of witches, vampires, werewolfes and faires is a fascinating and complex one. It's not so easy to say who's on who's side and I hope to learn more about the magical world in the next book of the series.
