To Kill A Warlock

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator—a
law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them
from wreaking havoc in the mortal world.

When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she
must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or
she becomes the next victim. 

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to
work the case with Dulcie. Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed
partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of
a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie’s got her hands full. 

As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering
in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

Another great novel from H.P. Mallory. This one is for more adult audiences... Keeping that in mind its a fantastic read!

Dulcie O'Neil is a Regulator for the magical creatures living in the human world. She makes sure that everything stays cool as a cucumber, or at least she tries.  She is the law for everything magical. When a dark arts warlock is murdered it becomes Dulcie's job to track down the killer.

The bad news is Dulcie was at the shop of the warlock the night he died, and she happened to have seen a stranger, one she has never seen before. Even stranger is that she couldn't tell what kind of magical being he was... which is very unusual for Dulcie being both a fairy and a regulator, she knows every creature that comes and goes in the human world.

Enter Knight Vander (what a great name is that?) He is tall, dark and handsome. He also has his sights on Dulcie... the problem? He is here to get Dulcie to work with him on finding the creature that killed the warlock. Should they mix business with pleasure? Guess you are going to have to read to find out ;)

I was very pleased with Dulcie's character, she reminded me of a girl next door type, with kick ass abilities! Her magic consists of fairy dust, which she can make by the flick of her wrist, which is very cool. She also has a great best friend named Sam who is a Witch and who would do anything for her. There is a steamy love triangle which is very well played out, she is caught between her boss and the very mysterious Knight Vander. I caught myself developing a little crush on Knight, he was the dark Knight and White Knight all rolled into one. Who doesn't love a bad boy that at times is the good guy also? I LOVED the ending... it was unpredicted which left me asking what happens next? I felt that To Kill A Warlock was a fascinating book, with lots of suspense and if your a fan of sexual tension... H.P. Mallory is a pro at it! I have a feeling this is not the last we will see in this series... at least I hope its not...
