Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.

Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.
Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.
To be honest this series totally reminds me of a mixture of the Anita Blake Series (Laurell K. Hamilton), Stella Mayweather Series (Camilla Chafer) and the Graveyard Queen Series (Amanda Stevens). You've got your love triangle between a human, a witch and a vampire and all of the amazing preternatural things happening around them in Vehicle City. I'm seriously loving this combination and looking forward to the rest of this series. 

It does contain quite the ADULT content, but it works so well in this plot line.  The paranormal beings mix so well with all of the lustful scenes - they kind of go hand in hand throughout the entire book. 

I loved Anwyn as the main character - she is strong, powerful and determined. I love that her character is a witch and not a vampire like so many other paranormal books lately. Witches fascinate me and between Anwyn and her BFF, Mel, I learned so much about them. Mel and Anwyn have this amazing friendship where they just know each other so well and share a snarcastic attitude.

The entire story is filled with so many quirky comments, little tidbits of interest (like the changing ringtones that Anwyn doesn't remember changing - this will be explained in book two), the different paranormal beings (aka Others - weres, shifters, vamps, fae, gnomes, demons and more) that I've never really known, and a few questions to be answered in the follow up books in the series. 

And throughout all of the relationship building, smexy scenes and magick - there is a murderer on the loose that Anwyn and her P.I.T. Crew (Preternatural Investigation Team) need to track down and capture. So many elements come together to make this story work.

I would strongly suggest this book to those who enjoy a great paranormal story with some amazing between the sheets scenes.
