The League of Gentlewomen Witches

by India Holton

Snappy Review

Such an enjoyable read – laugh out loud witty and frivolous – what a breath of fresh air!

Book Synopsis

The Princess Bride meets Jane Austen in this swoony second novel in The Dangerous Damsels series – an enemies-to-lovers historical romance with a magical twist . . .

Charlotte Pettifer belongs to a secret society skilled in witchcraft.

When rumours of The Black Beryl – a long-lost amulet with very special powers – start to circulate, Charlotte is determined to find the jewel before it falls into the wrong hands.

Which is what happens when the evil Lady Armitage reaches it first.

Begrudgingly accepting the help of rakish pirate, Alex O’Riley, Charlotte sets off to find the jewel before it’s too late.

But there’s one problem: pirates and witches are sworn enemies.

Which becomes a bit of a problem when sparks begin to fly . . .
