Jazz can't decide whether to scorch him with a fireball or jump into bed with him.

Jasmine Tremaine, a witch who can't stay out of trouble.

Nikolai Gregorivich, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer.

The sizzling love affair between Jazz and Nick has been off-again, on-again-for about 300 years. Mostly off, lately. But now Nick needs Jazz's help, and while Jazz and Nick try to figure out their own hearts and resist their ever-increasing attraction, they must steer clear of a maniacal killer with super-supernatural powers. They are surrounded by a hilarious cast of oddball paranormal characters, including Irma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazz's sports car, Dweezil, her ghoul of a boss, and Fluff and Puff, a pair of bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers (watch your ankles)!

Publishers Weekly

When she isn't getting into trouble with her oddball companions-a vicious pair of bunny slippers and a frustrated ghost who haunts her sports car-hot-tempered witch Jazz Tremaine earns money lifting hexes and driving limos for Southern California's All Creatures Limo Service. When the vampire cop she's loved and hated for centuries, Nikolai Gregorivich, seeks her help in catching a serial vampire slayer, Jazz fends him off to focus on her own problems (the sleazeball limo service owner; a client who generates supernaturally disgusting odors). She can't resist her sexy vamp lover for long, though, especially as clues in the killings point to an evil figure from her past. With clever writing, a high sensuality factor and an unfettered imagination, Wisdom makes a sparkling entry into lite urban paranormals. (Mar.)

50 Ways to Hex Your Lover 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 205 reviews.

Enjoyed reading this!! This is about a hard-headed young witch who wants to have her way even though she has been kicked out of the witches cousel....she also has a hard time shaking badboy Vampire Nickolai Gregorivich. They aren't supposed to like each other and they do. She works for a horrible...something named Dweezil part time. This is all made up to be a cute story of mahem and catastrophe with love all entangled in it!! I reccomend this if you want a little twisted paranormal humor!!

This was a fun read! I enjoyed the characters, and didnt find Jazz to be "pmsing" all the time as some reviewers did. She was simply strong willed and given the history between her and Nick, I can see her reacting the way she did. She is, after all, a supernatural being. The only reason I did not give this book 5 stars is that I dont care for the graphic sex and sexual language. That said, it wasnt rampant throughout the book, but it WAS there. Glad I didnt listen to some of the reviews !

I laughed, I cried, i snorted in laughter! Fun book that is an easy read the pages flying byl.

Light, fun fantasy. I enjoyed that the very immaginative paranormal characters were not traditional charicatures. Irma the ghost is great! The very graphic sex scenes, however, didn't seem to belong in the same book. The romance would have been more effective if it were a bit less explicit.

Just finished this book and I am still laughing, Irma is a hoot. Such a good blend of humor and drama. Sexual content prevents me from recommending this book to young adults or under but for adults this book is great and not your usual witch, vampire, ghost, Other storyline.

Funny yet still with ah ha moments! JUST hot enough to get the job done!
Pentheslia More than 1 year ago
This book series reminds me of the Queen Betsy and Katie Mac Alister books. The characters are fun and witty. The paranormal elements of vampires, witches, wizards and werewolves all make an appearance in the series. The love scenes are well done without venturing into 3XXX rating. Altogether, a fun quick read.

This book has your attetnion from the begining. The character's are interesting and engaging as well as humorus at times. I would definatly recomend this book for anywone who likes to escape into what they are reading. I'm anxious to read the rest of the series.
Jaynez More than 1 year ago
I admit the title was what drew me in to this book more than the summary or cover. But I'm glad I bought it. It is funny and exciting. I love the characters, Jazz is kick a** and even Krebs' short appearances are funny. I liked the ending and the intimate scenes were great. I recommend you pick this up for a good time.

cute, entertaining and lighthearted fun. the bunny slippers are my favorite charactors and i can't wait to see what trouble they'll cause next.

I am trying to get through this book, as I've almost put it down about three times already. I'm hoping it will get better, and I guess I keep reading to see how it ends, although that is getting to be a chore. I guess the bunny slippers are amusing, but the character emitting noxious fumes from his backside is a little less then amusing. This has a cartoonish feel to it. I thought it might be somewhere along the lines of a Charlaine Harris type book, but I don't know, I'm just not getting it. The blasts from the pasts are sketchy, and the ghost in the car gets annoying. I think maybe I'll stick a fork in this book, because I think its done. I really wanted to like this book, but its just not happening..

Very Cute and fun! It was tough at first, to get into it for me.  Once the crazy curses that she was set out to eliminate came about, it really got my attention. The awesome slippers she has I thought was a fantastic touch. I enjoyed the book very much and will be reading her next books as well.  I liked her attitude and the character she is very strong personality doesn't take sh** from no one. Her saying at the end of a spell was funny "because I say so damn it" The ghost Irma was a great character as well, haunting Jazz's car for 30 some years and never being able to leave. I recommend the book hands down!

Beware Of Bunny Slippers With Teeth! With <i>50 Ways To Hex Your Lover</i> , new to me author Linda Wisdom introduces her series starring a feisty witch named Jazz and a vampire named Nick who have been in an on then off relationship for several hundred years. Unfortunately, most of it has not been good and the last time Jazz and Nick were together several decades ago, he had her arrested. Understandably, Jazz is a tad cranky when she and Nick cross paths. He is definitely the last person, dead or alive, she wants to deal with and I was given a very good idea just how angry she is with him when she conjures up fire balls and wooden stakes ready to end his existence mere seconds after laying eyes on him again. Jazz doesn&rsquo;t need any more trouble. Her temper and bad behavior have gotten her in trouble with the Witches Council and she was banished so she is trying to walk the straight and narrow. I was very intrigued to say the least. Fortunately for the future of this story, Nick doesn&rsquo;t give up so easily and continues to try to persuade her to help him track down who is responsible for several vampires going missing. I liked Nick and his persistence. I liked that he and Jazz have an extensive history and they always manage to find their way back to one another. Jazz has a lot on her plate already and the last thing she wants is Nick back in her life. In addition to hiring her witchy services out to disarm curses and her job as a driver for a limousine company she has to deal with Irma, a chain smoking nag of a ghost, who haunts Jazz&rsquo;s T-Bird, her ghoul boss, Dweezil, who walks a very fine line between good and evil and her carnivorous bunny slippers, just to name a few. On top of that, her boss insists she is the only one who can drive his best customer (because he pays in gold bars), who also emits an odor so noxious that Jazz has to throw away the clothing she wears when she drives him. For Jazz, having Nick show up again after all these years is like the final straw for her. Of course, Jazz eventually agrees to help him, especially when she discovers that the most evil and foulest of creatures she thought had been destroyed in the &lsquo;30s is actually still around. I would have liked a little more background history with Jazz (and whatever names she used throughout the years) and Nick. How they met, more detail about her banishment and the relationships with her sister witches Stasi and Blair, how Nick became a vampire and his history with the Protectorate. There were a lot of references and inferences to these issues and a lot of jumping back and forth between past and present, but it left me with more questions that pulled me out of the story many times. Even still, these issues did not keep me from wanting to know more and connecting with the characters. My Final Verdict: Overall, this was a good start to a series that has three more books and one short story. Jazz and Nick will return in the next book, <i>Hex Appeal</i> and Stasi and Blair will each get their story. I am hopeful more will be revealed and explained as we go forward. If you like your vampire heroes to be hot and your witch heroines to be smart, feisty and full of snarky attitude, with vibrant supporting characters throughout that threaten to take over the whole story, then I recommend <i>50 Ways To Hex Your Lover</i> as a good place to start.
