Jasmine Tremaine is a witch with limited powers since she was banished into the mortal world in the year 1313. Every time she uses magic beyond her means or not for the greater good, she receives several hundred more years onto her punishment.
It is now the year 2007 and Jasmine is seeing her ex boyfriend Nikolai Gregorivich, now known as Nick Gregory, for the first time since 1972. Their relationship has always been rather rocky and they’ve been known to go centuries without seeing each other.
Nick Gregory is a vampire but also a cop. He’s working on a dangerous case involving a serial killer who might be the person responsible for the sudden disappearances of several vampires. Clive Reeves attacked Jasmine seventy years ago and she thought she would never hear his name again after she killed him. Somehow Clive did not die that night and is alive and well.
When Jasmine runs into Nick, he explains the case to her and asks for her help. It’s been a long time since they’ve seen each other so Jasmine is rather bitter and refuses to even talk to Nick. Eventually Nick’s sexy vampire charm wins Jasmine over and she is by his side helping him solve the case.
With some help from a ghost named Irma who is forever stuck in Jasmine’s car, Jasmine works hard to find a way to kill Clive Reeves one last time and for good. But Jasmine has no idea how evil Clive has become and quickly things become very scary for both Jasmine and Nick. Will they make it out alive or will they become yet another victim of Clive Reeves?
50 Ways to Hex Your Lover is the first book in Linda Wisdom’s new paranormal romance series featuring a witch and vampire working side by side to solve a case. There was plenty of humor, mystery, romance, and paranormal elements to satisfy every reader’s tastes. I loved all of the witch spells, the characters, and the excitement of this book.
The relationship between Nick and Jasmine was sexy and a new concept since we never hear about a witch and vampire couple. 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover is a fabulous first installment in a series that has already gained so many fans. I look forward to reading the second book Hex Appeal and learning more about these eccentric characters.
