Author: H.P. Mallory
About the Book: The witching hour has arrived in bestselling author H. P. Mallory’s captivating and sexy new novel, starring the most dazzling denizen of the undead, Jolie Wilkins.
Funny and feisty witch Jolie Wilkins is back—or rather, she’s back to her humble beginnings. Propelled into the past to her old Los Angeles fortune-telling shop, Jolie has no idea she possesses extraordinary powers, and she definitely doesn’t remember becoming Queen of the Underworld. But at least she has two incredibly sexy men vying for her affection: Rand Balfour, who looks very familiar, though Jolie can’t place his gorgeous face, and Sinjin Sinclair, who is tall, dark, and perfect . . . except for the fangs.
Yet despite her steamy love life, Jolie can’t shake the sense that something is not quite right—like she’s stuck in a déjà vu gone terribly awry. As both men race against time—and each other—to win Jolie’s heart, the fate of the Underworld hangs in the balance. And Jolie’s decision can either restore order or create an absolute, drop-dead disaster.
My thoughts: This is book number 4 in the Jolie Wilkins series, and it is also the first book that I read. I still enjoyed it very much though - enough that I will be adding the first 3 to my TBR list.
So, because this was my first introduction to Jolie, I was learning for the first time about Rand and Sinjin as well. It was kind of fun not knowing who was the "good" guy and who was the "bad" guy so that I could have a little mystery as to where the story was headed as well as the romance. Oh, and don't forget the paranormal aspect.
Jolie just thinks that she is a normal girl, who can see auras and tells fortunes. It is quite a shock for her to find out that not only is there more to the paranormal world, but that she plays a big role.
This book was quick to read, well-written, and loved the humor. When a book can make me laugh out loud, then I know it is doing something right.
