Bound as one, to love, honor, or burn. Book one of a stunning new fantasy trilogy, a tale of witchcraft and forbidden love.
Two years earlier, Louise le Blanc fled her coven for 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.
As a huntsman of the Church, Reid Diggory lives his life by one principle: Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. But when Lou pulls a wicked stunt, the two are forced into an impossible situation—marriage.
Lou, unable to ignore Lou’s growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, must make a choice.
Set in a world of powerful women, dark magic, and off-the-charts romance, book one of this fantasy trilogy will leave readers burning for more.
A brilliant debut, full of everything I love: a sparkling and fully realized heroine, an intricate and deadly system of magic, and a searing romance that kept me reading long into the night.

Shelby Mahurin grew up on a farm in rural Indiana, where sticks became wands and cows became dragons. Her rampant imagination didn’t fade with age, and she continues to play make-believe every day—with words now instead of cows. She still lives near that childhood farm with her very tall husband and semi-feral children. Serpent & Dove is her debut novel and was followed by Blood & Honey.
