I know my purpose: To rid the world of evil, one bad guy at a time.
When I turned twenty I took the oath to protect, and for the last five years I’ve kept that promise.  Currently, I’ve got a gig as a kind of one-witch secret service to the British Prime Minister—using a combination of potions, spells, explosions, mind-reading, and general butt-kicking skills, I’ve saved him from so many assassins we’ve quit counting. Umm, did I mention explosions?  Yeah, well: we all have our talents, and mine’s combustion.
After that recent incident when those stupid warlocks tried to sacrifice me, I decided I’m going to write everything down. That way if some creep knocks me off, someone will know what happened.  But hopefully this diary won’t be all about maiming and killing. I’d like to write some sexy bits, too.  Especially about Dr. Sam, who’s smart, funny, adorable, everything I’d want in a man—except he’s a warlock. Sorry, that’s a big no-no in Bronwyn’s book of dating material.  I might as well face it: witches don’t do so well in the boyfriend department.  Somehow, men find me a tad intimidating. I can’t imagine why.

Bronwyn is a witch, the one-witch secret service to the British Prime Minister, somehow living in the US. Written as a diary she accounts her life as she tries to balance her life with her job, trying to keep her mind on the work while also enjoying the explosions she's able to.It's readable and I wouldn't be put off reading the others in the series but not a keeper.

foi gave me this book as she went to the book signing saturday and thought i would love this book. and i did! it tells the story of bronwyn, a high witch, whose job is to protect the british prime minister. she can read minds and make people (read warlocks) and objects explode. this book was fast-paced and full of action with just a bit of romance thrown in. there are things reminiscent of buffy such as all the weird named demons and the magic shop, element of charmed with all the bad warlocks out to steal a witch's power. what i found really interesting though is in candace havens' world, everyone knows about witches. they don't have to hide or keep themselves a secret. not to say that everyone likes them or isn't afraid of them. i like how the book is written in diary format and bronwyn just plain kicks ass. if you like a little witchy magic and are in the mood for light reading, definitely check this out.

Awful book. I had to throw it away after I had read the first 90 pages, so its only registered here to remind me never to buy another book by Candace Havens - or published by Berkley

Bronwyn is a high Witch, working as a kind of one-witch secret service to the British Prime Minister. Her arsenal includes a combination of potions, spells, explosions, mind-reading tricks, and general butt-kicking skills. While she's traveling the globe to protect the PM and a middle eastern sheik (I'm not sure that she actually ever specifies what country he's from), she's pining for her warlock back home, Dr. Sam... despite the fact that she's promised herself not to fall for any man¿especially a warlock.This book is written in a diary/journal format, which in this case was actually a drawback as I don't think that format worked all that well with this story, and didn't add much to it at all. The storyline itself was interesting though, and I was kept in the dark about who the culprit behind all the assassination attempts was all the way to the end. I have the next book in this series, Charmed and Ready, waiting on Mt. TBR and hope to get to it shortly.I actually hedged between giving this a 6 or a 7, but went with a 6, because of my complaint about the journal/diary format.

Great Book! I stumbled upon this tattered paperback at a used book store, and I'm so glad that I did. I can not say enough how wonderful this story was. I laughed, I cried, both tears of joy and sorrow. This story was just so enticing. It's written as a bunch of journal entries telling the tale. I though that might be a hang up, but it didn't detract from the story at all. I will definately be reading the next in the series and other books from this author as well.

This book was entertaining and I loved the characters. The writing style took some adjustment because it was in a diary-like format. I look forward to reading others in the series

I 've read this book and it was really good if you're into witches and spells. It was exciting all i wanted to do was to read this book so i can find out the ending. I was pleased with the ending as well. The endng was so good that I wanted to read the next one.

I've read all 3 of Candace Havens' books and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. They're cute and fun, sarcastic, and an easy read. I recommend to anyone who isn't looking for life-changing literature. :)

This book is a light read. It's the book equivalent of a chick flick. Sometimes it is just what you need. The characters are lovable- the relationship between Dr. Sam and Bronwyn always seems to be in peril over the silliest things. I found it irritating and immature at times. Bronwyn has a create support group to keep her going and the diary entries never disappoint, love the foreshadowing.

This book is written in a diary style. The main chartacter keeps the journal so that is something every happens to her while she is keeping the Prime Minister of Britten, a Sherki and who ever eles turn up in the book from assaision, warlocks, witches and deamons. Very good book. The books I have read in the seris so far as all great read. They are worth reading.

Some parts of the story could have been developed a little further. It seemed that there were moments of time that were missing in the story development. The book was ok to read since I was home alone with nothing else to do.
