A new fantasy romance series coming in 2023
Unlock the secrets of Victorian England's underworld of fae magic, love and murder in this spellbinding romantic fantasy.
A spirited young woman’s quest for the extraordinary entangles her in a deadly investigation, where she must unravel murder, life-altering secrets and a forbidden love that transcends realms to save all she holds dear.
Bound by the constraints of Victorian England, Lady Alice Hyde’s future appears secure in a marriage arranged by her uncle, the Viscount. But her heart yearns for more than being a traditional and dutiful wife. Blessed, or cursed as it seems, with a curious mind and a thirst for knowledge, she eagerly anticipates a visit to The Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace.
However, her journey takes a darker twist when she stumbles upon the lifeless body of a young woman. Drawn into the investigation alongside the enigmatic and exasperating Cyan, Alice finds herself on a treacherous path fraught with danger and desire.
Together, Alice and Mr Symond battle not only dark forces but also a growing attraction that defies the chasm between their worlds.
As they unravel the mystery behind the murder, Alice discovers a whole new realm of terrifying possibilities that leads them to an all-powerful and vengeful fae who threatens both their worlds.
In a mesmerising blend of romance, fantasy and intrigue, The Charmed is a spellbinding tale of love, magic and choosing one’s destiny. Join Alice and Cyan on a heartstilling journey where they discover that even in the darkest of shadows, love can illuminate the way and potentially conquer the impossible.
The Charmed is the first book in the Fae of the Crystal Palace series and brings together the historical romance of Bridgerton with the mystery of Sherlock Holmes and an irresistible sprinkle of A Court of Thorns and Roses fae. It features medium level steam.
