Mr.Thorne and the Witch (Secret Realms) - 
(Historically Inspired Fantasy Romance) 
by Diana Green

Book Description
Fleeing the men who brutally murdered her family, Karene Munroe must hide her magical abilities and hope to go unnoticed in the bustle of the capital city. She takes refuge in the house of Malcolm Thorne, a fireworks maker, who offers her a job as his assistant.

Despite her precarious situation, she cannot help but be drawn to this generous and charming man. A future with him could be wonderful, but her past won’t be laid to rest. From a local crime lord who seeks to use her powers, to the hunters who are hard on her heels, Karene is trapped in a maze of danger and lies. Can she find a way out before Malcolm is lost to her forever?

***Stories from the Secret Realms are historically-inspired fantasy romance. They share a setting reminiscent of England in the mid-19th century, but their world is rich with magic. 

Each book stands alone, and they can be read in any order.

Our Book Review
This is the third book that I have read by Diana Green and I have to say that she is becoming one of my favorite authors.  I love the way her stories flow, the 19th century era they are set in, the way you find yourself bonding with the characters and feeling as if you are there watching the story play out. She entices me into a genre that that I don't often find myself reading.

Karene finds herself homeless, starved and alone in a strange city being hunted down by the Kilgores who are on a mission to kill her after killing the rest of her family she is the only one left, continuing generations of feuds between the two families.  Karene has magical powers but is afraid to use them to their full potential as doing so would make it easier for the Kilgores to track her down.

She comes across kind hearted Mr Thorne who helps her when no one would, he takes her in to his warm, secure home and offers her job as his assistant, not knowing the hidden powers she has or the real danger she is in.

Yet she finds out it isn't only the Kilgores she needs to hide herself and her magical powers from, as the town crime lord finds out her secret.  He blackmails her to keep her secret from the Kilgores, the town and Mr Thorne, giving her no choice but to accept, potentially putting her life at even more risk not knowing the dangerous world she may find herself in.

This was another easy, enjoyable read from Diana Green, connecting with the characters came easily and even found myself liking grumpy housekeeper Mrs Halloway!  I loved the ending and I cannot wait for more from the author so I can curl up with it and enjoy.

Miss Ridley & The Warlock
Gemma Ridley’s first encounter with Squire Kenrik proves nothing short of alarming. So much so, she considers fleeing back to the city, despite the fact only poverty and scandal await her there. Could those challenges be worse than staying as governess on a haunted estate and working for a dangerously handsome eccentric?

Little does Gemma realize what dark secrets and wondrous enchantments will transform her life at Rook Hall. Squire Kenrik is more than he seems—more than any man she has known. He may be the source of her undoing, or he may hold the key to her deepest desires. Only time and the guidance of her heart will tell.

  1. My magic power would be to fly so I could get places faster and not sit in traffic!

  2. I accidentally closed the 'Follow these twitter accounts' before I was done. This book sounds like quite the interesting read. Mystery, Suspense and Romance - it has it all!

  3. My magic power would be to know the next card coming out of the deck.

  4. The power to manipulate time. There are just not enough hours in the day.

  5. To be able to snap my fingers and finish this assignment (and correctly too) - because this report is super slow going right now.... Sigh.

  6. The book sounds so suspenseful. i love a good read that takes you into mystery like this

  7. Thanks so much, for the great review! I'm really glad you enjoyed the book.

  8. The power to transport myself from one place to another will be awesome. Imagine no more long distance travelling!

    Besos Sarah.
