Published Jul 2010
Jolie Watkins, who is a psychic, lives in a shop with her cat and her best friend, in Los Angeles. . But then she has a certain customer do a walk-in, a Rand Balfour, who is a warlock- a male witch, and a very powerful one at that. Then Jolie see's a ghost, which has never happened to her before, and then later finds out that Rand sent the ghost to her, to see her abilities, because he needs her help, in finding out who killed Jack (the ghost). So when she takes her friend, she goes with Rand, to help find the killer, however not realizing she not only finds out who kills him, but brings him back to life, needless to say Jolie is shocked that she is able to do such a thing. And despite the certain spark that comes to life between Jolie and Rand, Rand sends Jolie home, hoping that the magical world won't find her, but never realizing what he started. When Jolie gets invited to a special party by Bella, Jack's daughter, and also a powerful witch, and one you don't want to ever cross, Jolie goes hoping to see Rand once more, never realizing that her life is about to change forever, and she is taken on a adventure of a lifetime, where love and magic exists, where she goes on a journey of discovery, where she is in the middle of a battle, that she must win if she is to survive.
Rand Balfour, a male witch, has lived for a very long time, and in that time has never found love for himself. But when he needs Jolie to help him on a certain job, he never realized how his life would change once she entered his life, and how much he would fight to keep her by his side. Rand is one of those kind of hero's that all women all over the world, wished they had at their side. He is powerful, and has a good heart, handsome beyond belief, and cares deeply for that one woman that has changed his life. The type that would willingly die for her.
Jolie Wilkins, not knowing that she is a witch, believes herself to be a psychic. She lives in Los Angeles and her cat, and her best friend Christa. Then she starts seeing a ghost, and meets Rand Balfour, a warlock. When she agrees on doing a job for him, and in return gets money that will certainly help her make ends meet, she agrees, not believing at first what powers she truly has within her. Jolie doubts herself and her abilities, not believing that she is any of the things that she knows Rand see's in her. Then her world gets turned upside down, when her life changes forever in one night when she goes to a masquerade dance, knowing that all she wants is to see Rand again, but never realizing that attending that one dance, she can never go back to her old life, and where she will be put in the middle of a war. But this heroine will find inner strength and power throughout her journey in this book.
I was requested by this author H.P. Mallory to review Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble, and I am so glad that she did. I just loved this book, and once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down. This was such a wonderful story, and I found the characters to be engaging and the plot riveting and full of adventure, romance, wit, and danger. One of the things that I loved about this book, was that it was full of surprises that I never expected. It was truly a delightful read, and I am looking forward to reading more from this author. This is definitely at the top of my list of Urban Fantasy!
