Book Description

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling fantasy 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!

Toil And Trouble is the second book in the Jolie Wilkins series):

The Underworld in civil war.
The cause? A witch who can reanimate the dead.
A sexy as sin vampire determined to claim her.
An infuriatingly handsome warlock torn between duty and love.
Who says blonds have more fun?

After defending herself against fairy magic, Jolie Wilkins wakes to find her world turned upside down—the creatures of the Underworld on the precipice of war. The Underworld is polarized in a battle of witch against witch, creature against creature, led by the villainous Bella, who would be Queen.

While Jolie has one goal in mind, to stake the vampire, Ryder, who nearly killed her, she also must choose between the affections of her warlock employer, Rand, and the mysteriously sexy vampire, Sinjin.

And as if that weren’t enough to ruin a girl’s day, everything Jolie knows will be turned inside out when she’s thrust into the shock of a lifetime.

About the Author

Hi! Thanks so much for checking out my books! I've currently written an urban fantasy about a fairy in law enforcement (To Kill A Warlock) and a paranormal romance about a witch who can bring back the dead (Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble). I'm a mongo fan of anything that goes bump in the night and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! (Quick tangent--the best costume I've ever worn was last year when I went as the Headless Horseman and my baby was my Jack-O-Lantern head!) I've always loved the Twilight Zone Marathons and if I ever saw a ghost, I think I'd wet myself. I'd categorize my writing as a blend of suspense, humor, light horror, and romance with a sprinkle of fantasy to tie everything together! If you are all about fairies and witches and vampires (oh my!), you love a good alpha warlock and you like men who get a little hairy during a full moon, I got the goods. So, why should you take a chance on my books? Hmm...first off, I can promise my books are unique--you won't have read a story like them before. Second, I tried to make them funny--none of that super serious, dramatic soap opera stuff--okay, there's a bit of that but it isn't lame, I promise! And third, they're sexy and come on, who doesn't like a sexy book? More about me: I grew up in California although I've lived abroad in the UK (England and Scotland--woo hoo, gotta love those kilts!) Happy Reading! HP

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it!!! December 6, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
First of all, I have to tell you that I love H.P's covers. They are so cute and extraordinary that they alone make me want to read the book!

But back to the actual story. It takes up right after the events of the previous book in the series, after Jolie's fight against one of King Odran's faeries and right before the war against Bella and her minions. Having won over the faries King as ally, the preparations for the war begin. All the while Rand's army is assembled in Pelham Manor. Amongst all the preparations, Jolie and Rand have to figure out their feelings for each other and Jolie has to decide how Sinjin, the sexy and smooth talking vamp fits into her life. When the battle finally begins and Jolie finds herself in mortal danger, her life takes a more than unexpected twist...

Toil and Trouble's awesomeness is based on the fantastic characters. Even though it's declared a Paranormal Romance, you can't find one of the usual and dreaded clichés in this book. The relationship between Rand and Jolie with all its ups and downs feels natural and realistic. The issues they have aren't far-fetched just to stall their HEA, at least in my opinion but are due to their characters. And then their is Sinjin. The Vamp is such a great addition to the stroy with his razor sharp whit and his constant flirting. It's no surprise that two alpha male competeing for the affection ht for one lucky woman cause a lot of excitement. And did I mention sexual tension? Toil and Trouble is definitley sexy and has some very hot one on one action between two of the main characters, ( I'm not giving away who they are though!) but, in comparision to other PNR books, these scenes are written tastefully and fit the story very nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorite series! December 9, 2010
By Raelena
Format:Kindle Edition
As much as I loved the first book in the series, I think that Toil and Trouble managed to be even better! I'm really liking the direction Jolie's relationships with Rand and Sinjin is going. I love that one minute I think she should be with one guy, and the next minute I have changed my mind. It definitely keeps things interesting. Honestly, I am kind of in love with both men myself. Jolie is an amazing character. She is smart, funny, and likes her independence...but for me, the men really make this series. They bring mystery and sex appeal to the story in abundance.

At one point something very major happens (I know that doesn't really tell you much, but I don't want to give it away), and once it does things start to fall into place and let's just say, the plot thickens. There is some pretty good action (of the fighting kind), some very hot situations with each of the men, and lots of magic. In my reader this book is 273 pages. I was so engrossed in reading this book that I finished it quickly. When I reached the end I couldn't believe it. It was left on a cliffhanger and I was so ready to read more. H.P. Mallory has become one of my favorite authors and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Come hither Sookie fans... February 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had just finished all the Southern Vampire Series novels and was itching for something along the same lines. Lo' and behold, look what I found:

Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble
and
Toil and Trouble

Both books are light and easy to read. Jolie is very much like Sookie in that she's a twenty-something supernatural (with a twist), caught up in a love triangle and a little unsteady on her feet- She's a great character! I really hate to compare books/authors (especially in a review), but I think that it's important for fans of Charlaine Harris to know that there really is life after Sookie. Give it a go and I bet you'll be anticipating the next book in the Jolie Wilkins series as much as I am.

The first book was a fun read. I liked the world and the characters etc. The problem is the second book was more expensive and most of the time was spent rehashing what had happened in the first book. I found myself skimming paragraphs to get to something new. The only thing it had going for it was the hook at the end, (SPOILER ALERT) when the vampire arranges to go back in time and meet Jolie first. Part of me is curious to see what the 3rd book would be like, but the second book was such an obvious ploy to get more money for less work and creativity, that I just don't want to reward the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked and dying for more... April 23, 2011
By C. Boaz
Format:Paperback
After reading the first book in this series I was nervous about the second one. I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the first one, it was that good. But, it totally exceeded all my expectations. I am hooked on the Jolie series and am in agony waiting for the next book. HP's writing is phenomenal. She is so descriptive and her writing is just easy to read while challenging your thoughts at the same time. You end of caring about all the characters even the minor ones. There's excitement, adult romance and parts that made me so mad but I loved it! I was jumping up and down, screaming and smiling. I particularly like HP's sense of humor that shines through in this book. Jolie is witty and makes hilarious references to things of my age group (Great Scott!) Love it! If you like magic, vampires and other creatures this book has them all. You will not be disappointed with this series or the Dulcie books. My sister who hates to read has now purchased a Kindle and spends her time looking for her next fix of PN romance after these books. I initially purchased them on my Kindle but once I finished I knew I had to share them so I bought the hard copies to loan out to friends and my sis. Everyone loves the stories. And, aren't the covers so darn cute? That's what drew me in to these books as I was browsing one day! Can't wait to read more about Jolie and Rand. Happy reading!
