Havens serves up chick-lit romance with a supernatural twist. Bronwyn is a witch who uses her powers for good--casting spells and reading minds as an undercover agent for the British prime minister. Soon she finds herself working double duty when she is asked to protect a mysterious sheik who is a colleague of the prime minister's. Back home in Sweet, Texas, things are heating up, too. Handsome newcomer Dr. Sam and Bronwyn have instant chemistry, but her work makes it difficult for her to sustain a relationship. Plus, the sexy sheik doesn't seem to mind mixing business with pleasure, and Bronwyn finds his charms tough to resist. From assassination attempts to steamy sex scenes to the summoning of magical powers, Havens covers a lot of ground. Weaving together political intrigue, romance, and fantasy is definitely tricky, but Havens makes it work in this quick-paced, engaging story with unique and likable characters. Aleksandra Kostovski

Add in Dr. Sam, a hunk of a warlock (which is a problem in itself because Bronwyn has sworn off warlocks forever) vying with the sheik for her attentions and you have one mixed up witch.
Charmed & Dangerous is written in first-person diary style. The story is energetic and endearing. The secondary characters are fun and add depth to the tale. I adore a good ol' black-hat/white-hat shootout and we get several. Then, of course, there's Dr. Sam, a warlock whose gorgeous body and beneficent personality would melt any woman's heart. I highly recommend this story!
Bronwyn just has self-set rules that she tries to adhere too: Never date a client or a warlock.
Candace Havens had me in a giggle-fest. CHARMED & DANGEROUS is written out like you are reading Bronwyn's diary - which she started writing after a particularly nasty warlock tried to kill her. She decided that she needed to leave something behind so that when her diary was found, her loved ones would know what happened to her. Rather than beginning with the standard "Dear Diary" or such she starts out with the number of spells cast; bodies left in her wake; or returned jets and a few other cute headers. Hence, the giggle-fest.
While Bronwyn does attract her fair share of danger, she has a relatively normal life in Sweet. She is remodeling the house she bought and loves to garden, which also strengthens her magical abilities. I enjoyed the light humor interwoven throughout her diary entries because her job as protecting the Prim Minister (PM as she calls him) and the Sheik is a little intense.
Her relationship with Sam, the doctor is nothing short of electric. I really like the fact that even though they are crazy about each other they are trying to have a normal dating relationship to start out with. Then when Azir the Sheik enters the picture, I truly feel Bronwyn's confusion: true love versus a serious crush!
CHARMED & DANGEROUS is a fun, light read that isn't just fluff. Sounds like a contradiction, but read the book, you'll see what I mean!
Back in Sweet, Bronwyn meets non-practicing warlock Dr. Sam McKinney. They are attracted to one another, but Bron has a policy not to date warlocks as men and magic do not mix well. Of course enforcing her dictate means practically no males in her life. As Bron tries to keep Azir safe from his odious cousin, the Sheik and the doctor fall in love with her; she likes both though one contains warlock genes and the other is halfway around the world. Still does she love either of them and if the answer is yes which one?
This is a humorous chick lit romantic fantasy starring a delightful protagonist in which Bewitched meets James (make that Jane) Bond or at least Cody Banks. The story line is fun to follow even the dreaded bane of the sub-genre lists seem apropos as they come across as box scores of Bron's magical usage. Fans will appreciate this fine charmer while wondering who the dangerous Bron will select as her man.
