    A steamy game of cat and mouse between witch and witch-hunter, played out against a backdrop of opulence, secrets, and bloody history. A kingdom previously run by three witch queens, but following a devastating revolution, being a witch will lead to a public execution – hung up like cattle and bled in the streets. Our FMC, Rune, is a witch hiding in plain sight – an airheaded wealthy socialite by day, a witch saving vigilante by night. Rune is courting many of the kingdoms elite, “trying to find a husband”, but she’s really using her dates for vital intel. Through the night, as The Crimson Moth, Rune saves as many…

  • Best Books of 2023 (so far)

    These are the 9 books or series that I’ve given 4.5 or 5 stars to in 2023. I like to think I’m pretty picky about my 5 stars. A 5 star read for me is something I could not put down, it played into my emotions, I was invested in the characters. Tangled in Tinsel by Trilina Pucci Samantha is an interior decorator with a high-end (and good-looking) clientele. She gets snowed in with four of them. Jace, Reed, Alec, and Cole are the best of friends are love to worship women … together. Both filthy and funny! This might have been my first “why choose/ reverse harem” read, and…
