Title: Witchful Thinking
Series: Jolie Wilkins bk 3
Author: H.P Mallory
From H. P. Mallory—the exciting author of Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble—comes her new paranormal romance featuring the sassy, self-deprecating witch Jolie Wilkins.
Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises. The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld. Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.
First there’s sexy warlock Rand, the love of her life, from whom Jolie is hiding a devastating secret. Then there’s Sinjin, a darkly seductive vampire and Jolie’s sworn protector—though others suspect he harbors ulterior motives. As the two polar opposite yet magnetic men vie for Jolie’s affection, she must keep her wits about her to balance affairs of state and affairs of her heart. Overwhelmed, under pressure, and longing for love, Jolie decides it’s time to take charge—and show everyone that this queen won’t take jack.
While I’m not 100% sold on the Jolie being the queen of the underworld, I love that Jolie is so real, insecure yet smart. She’s flawed like many of us.
Jolie’s in love with two men who are rather difficult, Rand a warlock that refuse to admit his feelings and Sinjin that she trusts more than she should. These two men are sexy in their own individual ways, though Sinjin seems to want her more for a quick roll in the sack and well a drink. This book definitely makes you look forward to the next in the series.
