After a heist where Lou is only narrowly able to escape, she is on the run, specifically from Reid Diggory, a witch hunter sworn to the Church who has no clue of what Lou actually is, but is determined to apprehend her for her crimes.

To see if this unlikely pair is able to defy their roots for the sake of love and peace, read Shelby Mahurin’s Serpent and Dove Trilogy. 


Official Blurb:

Bound as one to love, honor, or burn.

Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.

Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle:  His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.

The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.

And love makes fools of us all.
