For fans of The Cruel Prince and those who always wanted to see Draco end up with Hermione, this enemies to lovers fake dating romance is sure to entice.

A crime lord’s daughter, a vampire with a secret, and the bed of lies that will seal their fate.

Though her father is a powerful crime lord and leader of a reclusive assassins guild, Bronwyn has always had to work hard to get what she wants.

The ancient spellbook she has her eye on is no exception.

She will do what it takes to get her hands on that kind of power, even if she has to pretend to be a student to earn the trust of its caretaker.

But when she discovers that her handsome but cruel first year tormentor is actually a vampire with his own plans for the academy, Bronwyn’s life is put in danger. If his associates learn that she knows of a growing vampire infestation, they will kill her.

Though neither is eager to work together—to save her life—they enter into an uneasy pact. A fake romance to fool everyone around them while they continue to work to their own ends. They don’t need to get along or even trust each other, they just have to make the world believe that they are madly in love.

And yet this devious vampire has a way of making the spark of their affections feel a bit too convincing.

Trapped by Magic is the 2nd book in Of Seas and Tides, a multi-author series of romantic fantasy novellas designed to be read in any orde(but read mine first, haha!). Each standalone features a villain who gets their happily ever after in a swoony, swashbuckling romance.

“Let’s make a deal. We both want answers from the other, so I will answer your questions if you answer mine.” He raises a brow, the white hair glowing in the starlight. “A question for a question?” “A question for a question, and don’t even think about lying to me, Wilder. I’m very good at figuring out people’s tells.” “Likewise, Eel.” I swallow hard when I realize that he is actually agreeing to this. A part of me wants to walk away. None of this is actually important to my grander purpose here. The vampires, Wilder, even the paper with my name on it—none of these things actually matter in the long run. I am here for a spellbook and nothing else. If anything, this game of sharing secrets will reveal too much and threaten what I’m actually supposed to be doing. And yet… my curiosity will not allow me to continue onward. Not without knowing, not without figuring out what is happening. There is something foul afoot here at this academy, and it involves the undead.
