Book Review: Gabrielle's Cauldron

             Today's review is on Gabrielle's Cauldron by Ann Gimpel

After reading Gimpel's Psyche's series, it's interesting to see the erotic side of her writing. I know that her ability to write mystery and romance was solid, but I love when an author is able to branch out into other genre's.

Thought I really enjoyed Gabrielle's Cauldron, I did feel that it was a bit rushed. With that said though, that is how novella's are. They are short, intense, and quick. All of the things that GC is.

Gabrielle McCallaghan, a hybrid Witch who now has no job to go along with no sex life. But when the handsome Warg enters her life everything changes. Not only does she find love, she finds truth.

Good novella's are the ones that make you wish that there was more. They leave you wanting the author to continue on with the story to create a good 300+ page book, and Gimpel has done this. I want more! I want to know how the "battle" goes. I want to know if there is a baby in the future.

A good pick-me-up read.

Book Description:  via Amazon

A deadly game of intrigue sweeps Gabrielle into a battle she has little hope of winning, even with her bond fairy helping. The last thing she expected was to fall in love . . . with the enemy!

Gabrielle McCallaghan just lost her job. Seeing the writing on the wall, she quit to spare her uncle the embarrassment of having to fire her. With her bond fairy on her shoulder, she strides through a crowded neighborhood contemplating her options. Out of nowhere, a gorgeous, full blood magic wielder appears and makes a beeline right for her. Gabby knows her hybrid witch magic is no match for his, so she tries to evade him. The fairy does her best to help, but the contest is laughable. Even in his human form, the wolf-man is still stronger than she ever dreamed of being. It doesn’t take long before Gabby is drawn into a deadly game of intrigue that started over a thousand years before. The stakes are high and the timing abysmal, but she finds herself falling in love in spite of herself. Can she and her full blood lover make a life for themselves? Or will the long-running battle between full bloods and hybrids pound the fragile bond between them to dust?
