Every witch knows the rules:
Stick to your own kind. Never reveal your powers to outsiders. Take a consort from the witching families or kiss your magic good-bye forever.
For years I've been quiet, obedient Rose Hallowell. I accepted the man my stepmother chose for me. But I never stopped missing my long-ago friends.
Now we're back on my childhood estate to arrange my marriage. The boys I grew up with? They're still in town—and they haven't forgotten me either. And damn if they haven't grown up well.
They've got no magic, no place in my life. But they're charming and sweet and infuriatingly hot, and I can't seem to stay away. The more I try to resist, the more secrets I uncover about my family, my betrothal, and everything I thought was true about the witching world.
I've been lied to. I've been betrayed. So to claim my magic and my happiness, I'll break every rule there is—and then some.
Don't mess with this witch. Every rose has thorns.
*Consort of Secrets is the first full-length novel in a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series. Take a dollop of gothic atmosphere, add a heaping of romantic angst, and mix it up with five enticing young men and a passionate witch just coming into her own.*

First thing that makes this book great. Rose has an invisible friend. It’s hilarious. I love her.
She takes action! While at 25 she is a little old to be manipulated by her father and stepmother, she doesn't let them keep her cooped up at home. She's constantly finding way to sneak out or get in touch with her boys.
She's also mature. She lives up to her past mistakes with the boys’ families and trying to make it right for them. She proactively investigates her stepmom looking for proof of her manipulation (savvy and mature), and goes after her witching spark by seducing her childhood friends instead of pining over her deadbeat fiance.
This plot is a delightfully fun read with a satisfying end (and a little teaser about what to expect in book 2).
As a young witch, Rose knows she won't get her powers until she takes a male consort from one of the witching family. Only someone from the witching line can light her spark. No, that is not a euphemism. A witch's spark is that internal bit of magic deep inside them, only kindled through desire and passion and love. You get glimpses of Rose's power when her spark is momentarily lit (hehe), but this can't help her outmaneuver her stepmother, who has the benefit of constant magic from getting it on with Rose's dad.
If you're looking for a delightful, entertaining guilty-pleasure read, then curl up on the couch with this.
