When Bronwyn turned twenty she took the oath to protect, and for the last five years she's kept that promise, 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. But Bronwyn has a soft side, too—especially when it comes to Dr. Sam, the favorite physician of her new hometown, Sweet, Texas. He's smart, funny, adorable, everything she could want in a man. Except he's also a warlock—a big no-no in Bronwyn's book of dating. Being a witch is definitely getting in the way of her sex life. If zapping evil jerks is easy, why is finding a boyfriend so hard?

Journal Entry 2 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Sunday, May 13, 2007
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.

This is now reserved for boogal, who won it in our Super Bowl wager.

This arrivesd just today...that's right, just today...:D



In reality, I received this a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting to journal it. Sorry, Cherie. *blush* Thanks so much for sending this book; it had been on my wishlist for awhile.

Journal Entry 5 by CharmedKim from Secaucus, New Jersey USA on Thursday, October 08, 2009
After seeing it in a bookstore several years ago and after Cherie sent it to me a couple of years ago, I finally have gotten around to reading this book; and I liked it. It was a fun read with an interesting premise and I felt a connection to the characters who are likable. I agree that the journal format didn't add to the story and was at times a distraction, drawing me out of the story thinking, "when is she writing this?", "how long ago did this event take place?", etc. Despite this, I do look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Sending today to Booksforever for the May RMTBRBB Exchange. Sorry it's so late!
