“If I had to grab one word to describe this book, it would be refreshing. Not like a diet Coke or something that’s saccharine and only satisfying in the short term, but refreshing like thinking to yourself, “Oh, that’s new, that’s different” while reading a plot that could have turned on a dime into well-trod cliché-land. Bachar keeps the story firmly in the present with a quick and witty narrator, and I kept reading.” Sarah Wendell, Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.
Wrongly accused of using her magic to harm, the closest Catherine Baker comes to helping others is serving their coffee. Life as an outcast is nothing new, but the injustice stings. Especially since the man she loved, Alexander Duquense, turned her in. Now he has the gall to show up and suggest she become the next Titania? She’d rather wipe the grin off his face with a pot of hot java to the groin. Hunted by a powerful stranger intent on drawing her into an evil web, Cat reluctantly accepts Lex’s protection and their resurrected desire along with it.
