Creation of the Perfect Heroine ... for Me
by H.P. Mallory
When I sat down and decided to write a paranormal romance, I had to ask myself what would my heroine be like? I've long been an avid reader of urban fantasy and paranormal romance, some of my favorite series being the early Anita Blake series, Sookie and the earlier Black Dagger Brotherhood books.

My interests are varied but aside from writing, I'm most excited about traveling. Uncovering new places and learning about different cultures is pretty incredible. I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to live abroad--what an amazing experience!
As far as favorite authors, I'm a definite Jane Austen fan. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book and the BBC miniseries is my favorite movie. As far as urban fantasy books are concerned, my new favorite paranormal romance series is the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning.
A self-deprecating witch with the unique ability to reanimate the dead. A dangerously handsome warlock torn between being her boss and her would-be lover. A six hundred year old English vampire with his own agenda; one that includes an appetite for witches. The Underworld in a state of chaos. Let the games begin.
Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat and a quirky best friend.
Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!
Word of Jolie’s incredible ability to bring back the dead spreads like wildfire, putting her at the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. Consequently, she finds herself at the center of a custody battle between a villainous witch, a dangerous but oh-so-sexy vampire, and her warlock boss, Rand.
