Enhance your purchase
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the teahouse. . . .
Miss Charlotte Pettifer belongs to a secret league of women skilled in the subtle arts. That is to say-although it must never be said-witchcraft. The League of Gentlewomen Witches strives to improve the world in small ways. Using magic, they tidy, correct, and manipulate according to their notions of what is proper, entirely unlike those reprobates in the Wisteria Society.
When the long lost amulet of Black Beryl is discovered, it is up to Charlotte, as the future leader of the League, to make sure the powerful talisman does not fall into the wrong hands. Therefore, it is most unfortunate when she crosses paths with Alex O'Riley, a pirate who is no Mr. Darcy. With all the world scrambling after the amulet, Alex and Charlotte join forces to steal it together. If only they could keep their pickpocketing hands to themselves! If Alex's not careful, he might just steal something else-such as Charlotte's heart.
A March LibraryReads Pick
A brilliant mix of adventure, romance, and Oscar Wildesque absurdity - one of the wittiest, most original rom coms I have read all year.--Evie Dunmore, USA Today bestselling author of Bringing Down the Duke
There's no literary experience quite like reading an India Holton book. The League of Gentlewoman Witches is a wild, rollicking, delicious carnival ride of a story, filled with rakish pirates, chaotic witches, flying houses (and bicycles, and pumpkins), delightful banter, and some serious steam. You've never read Victorian romance like this before... and it'll ruin you for everything else.--Lana Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Payback's a Witch
"Fantastical, romantic fun! Sparkling with witty allusions to Shakespeare and Austen, whimsical adventure, and tenderhearted romance, The League of Gentlewomen Witches is a book lover's dream come true."--Chloe Liese, author of the Bergman Brothers series
Sexy, funny, and utterly charming, The League of Gentlewomen Witches is like a deliciously over-caffeinated historical romance novel. Not only does Holton treat us to a fiery feminist witch as our heroine and a dashing pirate as our leading man, but she also gives us lyrical prose and crackling banter to enjoy on the side. Buckle up, readers, because this is a ride you won't want to miss."--Lynn Painter, author of Mr. Wrong Number
"What happens when a prim and proper witch crosses paths with a dashing pirate? Flaming chaos and delicious debauchery, of course. The League of Gentlewomen Witches is another wickedly funny romp through this glorious world created by India Holton."--Harper St. George, author of The Devil and the Heiress
"When a prickly witch meets her match in a dangerously endearing pirate... the match bursts into flames! India Holton's joyous, swoony, genre-exploding novel is a marvel, bristling with wit (and weaponry!) and brimming with love. The League of Gentlewomen Witches will steal your heart, fly it to the moon, and return it to your chest, sparking with magic and just in time for tea."--Joanna Lowell, author ofThe Runaway Duchess
The League of Gentlewomen Witches has punch and verve, and makes for one heck of ride. It's romantic, sensual and a lot of fun, too.--All About Romance
Filled with wit and an intriguing enemy-to-lovers romance. For fans of Jane Austen and Evie Dunmore.--LibraryReads
"The whimsical worldbuilding forms a perfect backdrop to the angsty couple, and Holton's winking narration, which puts her in cahoots with the reader, makes her exaggerated characters work. Overflowing with heart, humor, and hyperbole, this clever romance enchants."--Publishers Weekly
With her arch turns of phrase and clever wordplay, Holton provides plenty of chuckles...a fun-filled romp in a topsy-turvy world of corset-wearing, knife-wielding, magic-casting women and gun-wielding, light-fingered, charming pirates.--Kirkus Reviews
"Clever word play, delightful double entendres, and adventurous high jinks will delight fans of smart, witchy romances, including the first in Holton's Dangerous Damsels series, The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels (2021)."--Booklist
Holton takes readers on a wild ride through a fun, limitless world, where frivolity and whimsy reign supreme and skilled swordwork and grand displays of magic abound."--Bookpage

I was a very delighted fan of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels, so when I discovered the opportunity to gallivant once more in its world, and this time with gentlewomen, I immediately prepared my petticoat for perusal, peril, and a proper good time. Of course, these gentlewomen are really gentlewicca, using magic for serious matters rather than amusement. I was really delighted at the juxtaposition of Charlotte's good sense and Alex's devil-may-care attitude. With both of them enemies that should be at each other's throats, there was no end of banter, barbs, and bluster, all sprinkled with plenty of Victorian references that are sure to satisfy even the most Shakespearian of hearts.
Of course, their mutual goal, and inability to escape the other's presence, is capable of working its own magic, untangling somewhat the snags within their hearts, opening them to a rather different, and definitely improper, form of partnership. The League of Gentlewomen Witches is a wondrous, whimsical, wiccan follow-up to its flying house pirate predecessor, building upon this magical, Victorian-soaked world deftly and capably. Recommended for fans of Jane Austen, Shakespeare, flying houses, adept women, deft magic, and unlikely romances in troubled times.
"It was medicinal," Alex replied. "Your lips were turning blue. I thought it wise to warm you rapidly."
Incredible! Sensational! Fantastic! Egads, I loved it!
I dearly love a laugh and if you do too, sweet reader, then you MUST read the Dangerous Damsels duo.
Oh, Alex. He's so charming your inner Lizzie Bennet will swoon dead away. Drowning in that charm! He's a rouge, a thief, a buccaneer! And Charolette. Brave, Lottie. She's a witch, the enemy, and a briefcase thief! Grabby hands for more from India Holton! Tally ho!
