Bronwyn blows things up. Combustion is her specialty.
However, she does not need plastic, fuses or powder. She
just draws her hands close to her body, gathers up her
energy, and wham, she flings balls of fire right from her
fingertips. Yes, Bronwyn is a witch -- a good and extremely
powerful high witch.
Bronwyn is contracted to protect the Prime Minister, and
she's already saved him from a couple assassination
attempts. She uses her great powers to protect her clients
from anyone who means to harm them. Now she's protecting a
good-looking sheik while at the same time trying to save
herself from some nasty warlocks who want to kill her.
Bronwyn also possesses the power to read people's thoughts.
It comes in handy quite a lot in her profession and in her
personal life, but it's bad for her relationships with
guys. They already have a hard time being with someone so
powerful, but when you add in being able to read their
thoughts, they run away.
Then Bronwyn meets the new doctor in her town of Sweet,
Texas. And surprisingly enough, she can't read him at all.
Now she knows he must be a warlock, and unfortunately, she
doesn't associate with warlocks. Many in the past have
tried to kill her, so Bronwyn's policy is to keep to
herself, which she finds to be very boring. Yet, she's
drawn to the good doctor and thinks she may have even
fallen in love with him.
CHARMED & DANGEROUS is a funny, imaginative take on what it
would be like being a young, single, powerful witch. Ms.
Havens entertains with this first-person take on Bronwyn's
devotion to protecting people and her devotion to the man
of her dreams. A light, entertaining read for the summer.

Spells: 2, Dead guys: 0
Cute guys I want to sleep with: 1
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 little incident last month when those stupid warlocks
tried to sacrifice me, I decided I'm going to write
everything down. I'd eventually like to write down some
sexy bits. In particular, some sexy bits about Sweet,
Texas's finest, Dr. Sam: smart, funny, adorable, and pretty
much 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.
