Synopsis:
A sexy warlock who’s also a doctor. You’ll love his bedside manner.

General Fitzhugh Colmain isn’t your normal field operative. In fact, he’s not a field guy at all. Instead, he’s a member of the Magus Corps’ medical branch, a surgeon who can manipulate chi. But the rumor of a witch with a rare talent has lured him from the healing covens.

Phoenix Brielle and her giant poodle, Anubis, have been working at the hospital for nearly a year. As an animal therapist, she takes him to visit patients, spreading her canine friend’s love. But the hospital also gives her a unique opportunity. About the time she discovered Anubis, she started to revive the dead.

But as healer and necromancer get to know one another, jealous eyes watch from the periphery. The hospital’s chaplain would do anything for Phoenix—absolutely anything.

** This is a standalone novel. Her Warlock Protector books can be read in any order. **

About the Author:
Hazel and her husband stopped being separate people years ago. They live their happy life in the always crowded, mostly sunny, and sometimes sweltering city of LA. Though they haven’t managed it yet, plans are afoot to add a kitty to the household, thereby giving the allergist fits.

Hazel has been writing full-time for several years, with some traditionally published work in other genres. But it’s her indie-published romance that fuels the creative fire. It turns out writing isn’t a job, it’s an obsession.

When you can pry Hazel’s fingers from the laptop, you’ll find her: on the elliptical watching a documentary, indulging her audio book habit, or spending quality time with Candy Crush. Although she’s vegan, she’s a disaster in the kitchen. Luckily, potato chips and pinot noir come ready-made.

My Review: ✭✭✭✭
I picked this book for its description, but the cover art didn’t seem to go with it. Somehow in my mind, that’s not the way I picture Dr. Colmain. Lucky girl, if that’s what he’s really built like, but it just doesn’t seem to fit what I read in the book. In the book, he seems a bit on the nerdy side. But I guess you can be a nerd and still be ripped. I just don’t know where he’s going to put his pocket protector.

Nix was such a sad character in her poverty and isolation. And yet, she’s out helping others and taking care of her saved animals. She camouflages herself in baggy clothes and goth makeup so people won’t get too close or even look too closely. And she hasn’t a clue what she is or how to control her power. I think her name is so appropriate, Phoenix, Phoenix rises! And her giant poodle, Anubis. What a pair.

The Sergeant Brother Templar’s turning cartwheels in his head thinking he’s having his own special holy day with her dropped into his lap. And then there’s the Professor. What a creepy guy. Thank heavens and the Magus Corps for Hugh!

Parts of this didn’t quite fit together and didn’t seem likely, even in a fantasy novel. That’s why I docked it one star. I liked the story line and the two main characters, but I would have like to have gotten to know them a bit better. They’re like acquaintances, not friends.

With eight other books in the series, I suspect there are some more pretty good stories in there. I’d definitely suggest fantasy readers try a few. Maybe not starting with the 8th one in the series, though they are all standalones. You don’t have to read them in order. Hazel Hunter has several other series and is a rather prolific author, so give her a try.
