    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!

    Would you try another book from H. P. Mallory and/or Allyson Ryan?

    I bought this one and Toil and Trouble, so I'm hoping I enjoy it more. Fingers crossed.


    If you’ve listened to books by H. P. Mallory before, how does this one compare?

    New author, for me.


    What three words best describe Allyson Ryan’s performance?

    I enjoyed the narrators voice when doing female voices, but the male voices were lacking for me.


    Could you see Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    There are parts that are frustrating. Like the back and forth with this story's love interest. It just goes on and on. I still really enjoyed the book. I really get into the other story lines and even though they aren't always wrapped up at the end. They are the reason I must read/listen to the next one. The narrator is very good and plays a big part in how much I enjoy these books.

    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    Story

    This is a book that not only held my interest, but I so enjoyed it. However, there was a minor storyline that I just kind of rolled my eyes at. It was just too over the top for me. Having said that, it's definitely worth a credit, for me.

    I love that it's over 10 hours, it lets the story have so much more depth. More story lines that I definitely enjoyed. There is still some of the entire book world that needs to be uncovered and resected, so if you're looking for all questions from book one to be answered here, you will be disappointed, but since I know now I will be reading all of the series, I can wait. I do like that the main storyline in each book is resolved, at the close of the book, the other questions I have, I'll have to wait until one, or all of the series reveals them.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    Fills in all the bubbles for a good romance novel. It's pretty fantastical, but who doesn't want some of that in a romance novel. I will definitely read the rest of the series, but more likely on an ereader.

    I forgot how much I enjoyed The Line. There are many characters that have complex stories individually and together. It kept my attention at all times. It's well written, compelling the narration was fantastic. At first, I was somewhat disappointed that I couldn't see a window to add more books, then (***SPOILERS***) I remembered the baby and Peter being Fae is dangling out in the universe waiting to be explored. YAY! I enjoyed that it wasn't all rainbows and sunshine. There's some darkness to it that digs in and plays with your emotions more than some books in this genre.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    This series, plus the Nice Girls couldn't be more fun. I've never enjoyed a writer/narrator team more. Simply perfect. The books are all fun, sexy, laugh out loud funny. When I'm done listening to my two books paid for with credits each month, I put these on just to enjoy the storytelling and to return for more Half Moon Hollow. The characters feel like friends. The type of friends that if you don't have, you definitely want.

    I enjoy just about all books in this genre, but for many different reasons. Sure, this one is sexy, but they all are, hence paranormal romance. I like this one 1) I absolutely love series books. I like to get to know each character. 2) I like that this first book feels like you've only barely scratched the surface of the possibilities, in this world. Leaving me wanting to read/listen on and on.

    Such an original story told by a great narrator. There seems to be layers upon layers and, I know I haven't caught everything. I only keep the books that I know I will read again, maybe for pleasure, or to discover more from the stories I already enjoyed the first time. Charley is a smart, loyal, hilarious character, but then add her "family" of misfits and I'm all in.

    Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

    I LOVE this series. Each book is so funny. The author and narrator are my absolute favorite pair, so far. I didn't think I would find a series to top the Sookie Stackhouse books, but this one did. The only negative is that I wish there more books, in the series.

    If you like your books steamy (this is a paranormal romance series for adults, not for kids or teens!) and you appreciate a good witch, warlock and vampire romance triangle, listen on! Toil And Trouble is the second book in the Jolie Wilkins series (witch romance books). The Underworld in civil war. The cause? A witch who can reanimate the dead. A sexy as sin vampire determined to claim her. An infuriatingly handsome warlock torn between duty and love. Who says blonds have more fun?

    What did you love best about Toil and Trouble?

    I liked that even though it was a little predictable, at times there still were parts that I didn't see coming. Also there was always something happening with at least one character during the slower moving stories.


    What does Allyson Ryan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoy her narrative voice, her female characters too, but the male voices are so deep and slow kind of make them sound villain like.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
