SummaryIn 1837 London, young daughters of viscounts pined for handsome, titled husbands, not careers. And certainly not careers in magic. At least, most of them didn’t.

Shy, studious Persephone Leland would far rather devote herself to her secret magic studies than enter society and look for a suitable husband. But right as the inevitable season for "coming out" is about to begin, Persy and her twin sister discover that their governess in magic has been kidnapped as part of a plot to gain control of the soon-to-be Queen Victoria. Racing through Mayfair ballrooms and royal palaces, the sisters overcome bad millinery, shady royal spinsters, and a mysterious Irish wizard. And along the way, Persy learns that husband hunting isn’t such an odious task after all, if you can find the right quarry.

Rad Review: I really enjoyed this book. The plot interested me from the moment I heard about it. London society vs. Magic. Totally awesome! This book was fun and clean and enjoyable. I loved there characters. The romance. The plot. Marissa Doyle crafted a spell-binding book. 

There were definitely times I wanted to kick Persy for being so blind about Lochinvar. Hah, but all's well that ends well right? I loved the POV anyway. A very fun and witty read for anyone who wants a good book. Highly recommended
