Book Description

From New York Times And USA Today Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author, HP Mallory, Comes The Jolie Wilkins Series!

"H.P. Mallory has a quick wit, a fresh voice, and a clever way with words. If you like Charlaine Harris, you’ll love H.P. Mallory!” ~ Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author

If you like your books steamy (this is a paranormal romance series for adults, not for kids or teens!) and you appreciate a good witch, warlock and vampire romance triangle, read on!

FIRE BURN AND CAULDRON BUBBLE is the first book in the Jolie Wilkins series:

A self-deprecating witch with the unique ability to reanimate the dead.
A dangerously handsome warlock torn between being her boss and her would-be lover.
A six hundred year old English vampire with his own agenda; one that includes an appetite for witches.
The Underworld in a state of chaos.
Let the games begin.

Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat and a quirky best friend.

Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!

Word of Jolie’s incredible ability to bring back the dead spreads like wildfire, putting her at the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. Consequently, she finds herself at the center of a custody battle between a villainous witch, a dangerous but oh-so-sexy vampire, and her warlock boss, Rand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but not what I expected August 7, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book July 30, 2010
By Yasamin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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'd like to get an age poll from the reviewers that left 4/5 star ratings for this book. I'm honestly curious what age group this book appeals to. The language and brief sexual content would push this book beyond a YA novel, but the ridiculous immaturity of the leading lady (Jolie) leads me to believe it was written for younger readers. As a 29 year old female, I couldn't relate to Jolie at all. By the end of the novel I was so mentally worn out from listening to her piss'n'moan about one of the many men she was inexplicably smitten with, or her childish jealous rampages over any female having the slightest contact with any of these men, or her endless whining about not being pretty.

The author did nothing to make Jolie appealing...at all. I understand that as an author, you have to give your characters flaws so that your audience can relate to them. But honestly H.P. went overboard on Jolie. And perhaps its just me, but having a weak character constantly admit how dumb, unattractive, and weak they are only makes the character that much more annoying. Especially when every other character is blue in the face trying to convince them otherwise. Jolie's thoughts and emotions are so ridiculous it becomes painful to read, more so because the story is told from Jolie's perspective so you never are given a reprieve from her immature musings.

My head's still buzzing trying to make sense of this novel. It was exhausting trying to keep up with Jolie. One second she's lusting after Rand...and then Trent...or was it Sinjin? Technically she thought Sinjin was hot before she met Trent...but didn't really start lusting after him until Trent dumped her...but all the while she's really sweating for Rand...

1.0 out of 5 stars Burned and Bubbled my Patience April 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
