A 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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Jolie Wilkins has a good, if not average, life: a cute house in suburban Los Angeles, a cat, and a steady career as a psychic. A love life of any kind, however, is one thing that consistently eludes Jolie. With a sassy and energetic delivery from veteran performer Allyson Ryan, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble is a witty romance that follows the terminally single Jolie from an encounter with the "sinfully attractive" warlock Rand Balfour to the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. This first entry in H. P. Mallory’s Jolie Wilkins series is a titillating adventure that is nearly impossible to stop listening to.

Awful, awful, awful

What disappointed you about Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble?

Story sounded like it was written by a sexually precocious teen-aged girl. It's one of the few books I couldn't finish. I don't usually write reviews, but this one is bad enough I feel like I need to warn people off.


Would you ever listen to anything by H. P. Mallory again?

Nope.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator sounded like an airhead. A different narrator might have improved the book slightly.


What character would you cut from Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble?

The protagonist.


Any additional comments?

If you want to read some GOOD witchy books, try Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearn (has witches in it), and Secondhand Spirits series by Juliet Blackwell.

disjointed narration

I am looking for a new series and was disappointed with the narration or maybe just the writer.
It did not flow smoothly and I was not overly impressed by the language used.
Just because I read, and like bit of romance with my fantasy does not make me an idiot.

Plot was ok, however as a whole, it failed to deliver.
The new new series I am looking for unfortunately is not this one.
