Overview

"Wickedly fun!"
--Romantic Times

"Clever writing, a high sensuality factor and an unfettered imagination..."
--Publishers Weekly

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)!

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 !

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.

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..

It was a fun story but to much sex details. Jazz is a 700 year old witch who lifts curses of people and things. jazz also drives a limo. Nick is a vampire PI. he and jazz have been lovers over the years and break up when to protect her he gets her arrested many times. Something is making vampires disapear was a few a month than a few each week. Nick thinks it has to do with a old horror star who attacked jazz 70 years ago and she kill him. So Jazz tries to distance from nick but they fall into old habits. i enjoyed it.

This was a cute story. There was lots of humor and lots of romance. I liked the wide cast of characters and the personalities and descriptions of each. (Although on the back cover, it says that the ghost in Jazz's car is named Norma, but in the actual book, the ghost's name is Irma..hmm).

50 Ways to Hex Your Lover is more of a paranormal romantic suspense book rather than paranormal romance. It¿s cute, lighthearted, and perfect for both a long drive from Chicago to Minneapolis and the time just around Halloween. The characters are enjoyable¿Jazz drinks out of a ¿Wicked¿ mug¿and I really liked her fireball reactions with Nick.Unfortunately, I started to lose interest in the ¿maniacal killer¿ and who¿s killing the vampires. And Wisdom doesn¿t expand the evil character as well as she could have through out the book (I didn¿t understand his motives other than, well, escaping death). However she does a nice job of making him truly loathsome when he finally does enter the picture at the end of the book.All in all, a nice read that entertained me.

This book looked awesome and the reviews made me run out and purchase it on a recent trip to the mall. Unfortunately, I felt let down. The plot seems interesting enough. Jazz is a witch cast out to live amoung humans for some slightly vague reason. She has been having a love/hate and off/on relationship with a vampire for hundreds of years. The vampire hero was boring in my opinion and I never really felt him or the relationship between this vampire and the witch. Jazz was humourous. She had a big heart and was kind of offbeat, which I enjoyed. The bright spot of this book has to be its outstanding cast of supporting characters..(with the exception of her human roommate who also comes across as dull). These standouts include a nasty boss with a treasured adult toy collection, a disgusting monster that Jazz has to chauffer for a living, a ghost who was a housewife who is now forever stuck to Jazz's passenger seat in her car, and most especially a pair of bunny slippers who tend to sink their teeth into anything and anyone they come across. This book drug on for a really long time...I actually nodded off several times in the middle when I was reading, which I never do. The ending was pretty good, and I really liked how the finale came about with the 'shadows' getting their revenge. There was just too many parts that weren't exciting and the plot went nowhere. There were also too many sex scenes that just weren't fun either. I will be in no rush to pick up the follow up "Hex Appeal" but I do believe that Ms. Wisdom has the tools to make this series something special. Even with magic this one, however, fails.

I actually hate giving this book 3 stars because I whole heartedly believe in the potential of the series. The world-building, the setting, the mythology use-it's all very intriguing. But this book fell short. Chapel became a vampire when he drank from a mystical cup known as the Blood Grail, having mistaken it for the Holy Grail. Six hundred years later, in the year 1899, Pru Ryeland is searching for the Holy Grail in hopes of curing her terminal illness. Chapel fears that what she will actually find is the Blood Grail and that she will become cursed as he believes he is cursed. But as he begins to fall in love with Pru, his belief in his own soul-less nature is challenged. The use of history and mythology is fun, interesting, and well put together. The time period and setting is rich and unique, and in fact is one of the few things that sets this book apart from other paranormal writings. Chapel is a surprisingly sexy, if somewhat frustrating character. He is loyal, determined, and fun. His love for Pru is heartbreaking. First of all, Pru's terminal illness is-it's never given an exact name, so I assume uterine cancer-the biggest plot point/conflict in the book. I am not at all making light of cancer but it's presence in the story is,dare I say, drawn out to the point of dull? We expect her to be saved, obviously, whether she finds the Holy Grail or becomes a vampire. But it takes THE ENTIRE BOOK. We are forced to watch Chapel hem, haw, and struggle with his own self-pity while the love of his life suffers unnecessary pain. And Pru's cancer is a seriously painful one. I don't know how well Smith researched the disease but I happen to know from what I've witnessed that 1)Even early stage cancer patients are often exhausted, suffer from easy bruising, and tend to have compromised immune systems, and 2) The physical reality of advanced uterine cancer does not usually allow for any kind of comfortable sexual relationship. So the fact that Pru is so active right up until the very end is seriously problematic. Despite all of this, I still have high hopes for the series. While I did not care for the terminal illness plot-line, I enjoyed Smith's style and imagination.

I liked "50 Ways to Hex Your Lover". The heroine, Jasmine, was someone I would love to go partying with, and the hero, Nikolai, was one hot vamp.Jazz and Nik have a long history, 300 years or so worth. The problem is he keeps having her arrested, and then says he's only doing it to keep her safe! Jazz decided 30 years ago...No more Nik. So what the heck is her doing here now, and why is he asking for her help? Turns out an evil they thought they had eradicated in 1932 managed to get away, and it's apparently up to Nik and Jazz to do the job right this time.I'm pretty sure this is my first Linda Wisdom book. I did enjoy reading about Jazz and Nik and would definately pick up another book about this interesting duo. But, I was definately left with questions about their relationship. Was Nik waiting for Jazz to grow more powerful? How can they really have a relationship is her blood is poison to his kind? Why is the Witches Council loaded with bitches? Why did Nik leave the Protectorate? Anyway, I'm hoping there is another Nik and Jazz book so I can have my questions answered, but I still had a good time reading this one.

Witches and vampires don't get along? Who knew? Very fun and far more elements than romance. Romance is the smallest element in this mystery/paranormal thriller. I found this very enjoyable and a darn good read.

Jazz is a witch, trying to make her way in the world after being banished several centuries ago. Nick is a vampire, and recently left his job with the vampire ruling body to become an independent investigator. Although witches and vampires tend to avoid each other, Jazz and Nick have a volatile past, where their love is intertwined with fearsome arguments. When their past comes back in the form of Clive Reeves, Jazz and Nick are reunited once again. They must survive each other, and Clive, to save the world.I was completely charmed by this book. While it was predictable, it was fast paced. The suspense was intermixed with the delightful characters (would a pair of voracious bunny slippers ordinarily be considered a character? They were reminiscent of a certain Monty Python bunny, but in slipper form. Unexpected and welcome in this story!) Even the less-than-savory characters were well written and unique, even if they were relatively two-dimensional. The back story between Nick and Jazz was revealed when necessary, and not just dumped on the reader. This was a fun way to spend a rainy day!

This is not my genre but the book was ok. It kept me entertained. The main heroine Jazz had too much of a bad attitude for my liking. I did like Irma and the bunny slippers!

Fun little Rom-Com that just happens to be about a witch and a vampire.

First of all, I'd like to say that Ms. Wisdom's writing is incredible. Her characters were well developed and very easy to identify with. Jazz has a temper, boy and she reminds me so much of myself. But she has to stay on her best behavior for the fear that the Witches' High Council will add more years to her banishment. Gotts watch those flying fireballs. In the beginning, verything seems to be going just her way, all the while working as a curse eliminator until Nick decides to come back into her life. Vampires have come up missing and he needs her help. Although she resists him for the first part of the book, her body seems to have other things in mind, when it comes to Nick. And he feels pretty much the same way. She comes to find out that the man that she thought she had destroyed before is still alive and has developed some powerful magical powers. Throughout the story, Jazz and Nick try to figure out where they are in their strange relationship all the while trying to figure out how to get rid of this killer for good and listening to Irma, her ghostly friend from the car, who nags her from the passenger seat and is very vocal when it comes to Nick. Then there is her roomate, Krebs, (who is a human and really doesn't like Fluff and Puff, cause they tend to get in trouble when she's not around) who she is trying to keep safe amongst all of this stuff.The story is fast-paced and there is plenty of action to be had. The world that Ms. Wisdom has created for her stories is amazing. They mingle with each other whether they like it or not, per rules that they set themselves. Such as vampires don't like witches (except in Nick's case). I like the twists that she put about witches blood being bad for vampires. It's just amazing and I can't wait to read Hex Appeal to see what happens next!

Fun and a good read. I'm not a fan of vampire stories, but this one is more a witch tale than a vampire story. I thought the ending was a bit rushed, but other than that, it was great.
