Chaos Witch : A witch without her magic is a very dangerous thing.
In a world where witch magic comes from the gods, having two gods fighting over your soul should be an honor. The problem is, I can’t choose.
The gods hate that.
So, I’m a witch without magic until I decide which god to entrust my life to.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any more complicated, my future husband rocks up to my door with a mercenary gig I can’t turn down. Solitary witches like me have been disappearing. Only now they’re returning, this time with dark and dangerous magic.
I’d always sworn I’d find a way out of my arranged marriage, but now I’ve met Gideon Shepherd with his sexy Scottish accent and stunning emerald eyes, I’m rethinking that plan.

The electric tang of Set’s magic coated my tongue, teasing me. All I had to do was say please.
I leaned down, trying to ignore the spinning, and slashed at the tentacle around my ankle. The woman-thing edged forward, her teeth snapping on the air between hisses. I got the distinct impression she planned on eating me, and I was nobody’s meal.
My knife dug into the thick leathery hide of the tentacle. It had felt cool and slippery before. The magic was evolving. I swore loudly.
“Please,” I hissed.
A soft chuckle filled my mind right before Set’s magic flooded my system. “
