Kindle Faves: Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble by H.P. Mallory

From Amazon.comA self-deprecating witch with the unique ability to reanimate the dead. A dangerously handsome warlock torn between being her boss and her would-be lover. A six hundred year old English vampire with his own agenda; one that includes an appetite for witches. The Underworld in a state of chaos. Let the games begin. Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat and a quirky best friend. Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life! Word of Jolie’s incredible ability to bring back the dead spreads like wildfire, putting
her at the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. Consequently, she finds herself at the center of a custody battle between a villainous witch, a dangerous but oh-so-sexy vampire, and her warlock boss, Rand.

This was the very first book that I downloaded from Amazon. It is a little treasure by author H.P. Mallory, whose site you can visit here (I highly recommend it – it is very cute!). The first of the Jolie Wilkins series, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble is a fascinating look into the world of the supernatural.

Ms. Mallory’s writing is funny and engaging. Jolie is a lovable character even with all her faults, perhaps because of them. You’re immediately pulled into her world and find yourself cringing along with her, rooting for her, yelling at her, and wanting nothing but the best for her. Rand is as gorgeous as he is mysterious, and you don’t know whether you want to hug him or hit him upside the head. Together with the rest of the characters you’re thrown into a rich world full of supernatural antics, a world you don’t really want to leave. This is the type of writing that grips you and doesn’t let you go, not even after the book is over. Thankfully this is only Book 1 of the series.

You can download the book from Amazon (click here) for the excellent price of 99 cents. NO KIDDING! You can also order the paperback for only $11.23. Personally I would download the book. It is a great read for less than a buck! Don’t forget to check out the rest of H.P. Mallory’s work on her author site on Amazon (click here).

  1. I enjoyed this book thanks for posting this info. Please keep doing what you are doing! I guess I have to much free time since I am always reading. But I love all these other wordly stories. Thanks again, SD

  2. I haven’t tried this one yet. But I will. Have you read Bound to a Prince by Deborah Court? I read it last night. The story is about an eleven prince that binds himself to a human. The imagery is wonderful. The lemons are good also.

    • Not yet, but I would love to! I got an Amazon gift card for my birthday, so I’ve been downloading new books and music little by little. I’ll go check it out! Thanks! 🙂

  3. Well, bless you for supporting indie authors and looking farther afield for your reading choices.

    I’ve been an indie author and publisher since 1990 but the past five years has seen an EXPLOSION of self-published e-books and print on demand efforts. The vast majority are amateurish and derivative but there ARE grains of wheat among the chaff for discerning, patient readers.

    Keep reading and continue to spread the word re: literate, intelligent indie releases. Help build a critical community among those of us who revere the printed word…
