£6.19 per Witching Hour (Paranormal Personnel Saga #1) by Joanna Mazurkiewicz
Julia Taylor works as a recruitment consultant for Paranormal Personnel in London. Her days at work seem normal. She sees clients that regularly are looking for work; she searches for new vacancies, updates CVs and visits employers.
Everything is pretty ordinary for her, apart from the fact that Julia is half elf and Paranormal Personnel is not an ordinary recruitment agency at all because all jobless supernatural creatures come to the agency to look for work. Fairies, vampires, witches, hags, wizards, mermaids, elves, giants and trolls, they all need to find employment, and during this economic climate, this seems pretty challenging.
Julia doesn’t want her life to be complicated, but when her day is interrupted by the shapeshifter with the chain saw, she just has to deal with him as she always does. She is normally calm, confident and is not afraid to stand up for herself, but when the meeting with Nathaniel’s Corporation goes not as well as she had hoped, she wants to bury herself under the ground and die.
Then, to make matters worse, Mr. La Caz gets under her skin, lighting up a fire inside her. She accidentally reads his thoughts and learns that he craves her; he wants to suck her dry, but she is convinced that he is not even a vampire.
I've had this book for a while and thought I'd see what it was about. In my opinion there was spelling mistakes and stuff that never made sense in the sentences that was being written.
Overall storyline was ok. Julia Taylor is a half Elf, Nathaniel La Caz is a drop dead gorgeous Dhampir (a half vampire). Julia works for Paranormal Personnel (a Personnel Agency in Croydon, even though they have branches in other places). Someone is stealing the fairies and elves, 1 of the elves that are missing is Claudia (Julia's cousin). Watch the sparks fly when Julia gets a contract from La Caz and the affair takes off. You won't be disappointed if this is the kind of book you want to read.
