Synopsis: Wes Rockville, a disgraced law enforcement agent, is given one last chance to prove himself and save his career when he's reassigned to a 232 year old secret government organization. The Witches Protection Program. His first assignment: uncover a billion-dollar Cosmetics company’s diabolical plan of using witchcraft for global domination, while protecting its heiress Morgan Pendragon from her aunt’s evil deeds. Reluctantly paired with veteran witch protector, Alastair Verne, Wes must learn to believe in both witches and himself. Filled with adventure, suspense and a rousing good time, Michael Phillip Cash creates a tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern day New York City.
Wes Rockville comes from a highly successful family, but somehow all he's managed to do is disappoint his father. After his last foiled mission, his father gives him a chance to redeem himself by joining The Witches Protection Program. But is the task one Wes is willing to take on? Maybe, if he can't make himself believe it's not a hoax...
After meeting his new boss, Alastair Verne and getting his odd weapon and badge, Wes is certain his father has made a mistake. However, once he cathces a glimpse of the beautiful witch he has been sent to protect, Wes has second thoughts and when they are attacked by evil witches with shape-shifting abilities Wes knows he has no choice, but to do his job. Can Wes defeat evil, protect and win the heart of Morgan Pendragon, and make his father proud? It's a huge undertaking one that could cost him his life.
I have read a few books by Michael Phillip Cash and he is a talented author who does not disappoint. Witches Protection Program is a creative, well thought out tale full of vibrant imaginative characters that I found fascinating. I was immediately drawn to Wes, even when his dad highlighted all his "failures," and I longed for him to prove his father wrong. I also liked Morgan Pendragon and her desire to be unique even though her aunt forces her to fit in. The plot is full of surprises and I found the book to be a real page-turner.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
