A young noblewoman must join forces with a rumoured witch to conquer an ancient curse in this devilishly funny and heartwarming sapphic Regency romantasy from TikTok titan and bestselling author of Boyfriend Material Alexis Hall - unmissable for fans of Juno Dawson's Her Majesty's Royal Coven, Sophie Irwin's A Lady's Guide to Fortune Hunting, and Freya Marske's A Marvellous Light.

It is the year 1814 and Miss Maelys Mitchelmore finds her entry into the highest society of Bath hindered by an irritating curse. It begins innocuously enough, with her dress slowly unmaking itself over the course of an evening at the ball of the season, a scandal she only narrowly manages to escape.

However, as the curse progresses to more fatal proportions, she realises she must seek out urgent assistance, even if that means mixing with the most undesirable company-and there are few less desirable allies than the brooding Lady Georgiana Landrake-who may or may not have murdered her own father and brothers to inherit their fortune.

If one is to believe the gossip, she might be some kind of malign enchantress.
Then again, a malign enchantress might be exactly what Miss Mitchelmore needs.

Press Reviews

  • USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday on Boyfriend Material
    Alexis Hall is the undisputed master of romantic comedy
  • Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
    A lovely, pitch-perfect romance, with an alternate Regency setting that is well developed and has tremendous charm... Part historical, part fantasy, all top-notch queer romance
  • Publishers Weekly (starred review)
    A fresh and delightful addition to the queer romance canon... All the interpersonal drama of Jane Austen meets all the complex treachery of Greek mythology. Full of adventure, chaos, magic, and lust, this will enthrall Hall's fans and new readers alike
  • Booklist
    From the book's puckish narrator-whose sly observations on humanity add another layer of humor to the story-to the whimsically wonderful, witty writing that evokes Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde, Hall... [creates] an effervescent, genre-blurring romantic confection that will be utterly irresistible to fans of Patricia C. Wrede, Caroline Stevermer, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Zen Cho
  • Entertainment Weekly
    A contemporary Oscar Wilde
  • New York Times bestselling author Talia Hibbert on Boyfriend Material
    A fun, frothy quintessentially British rom-com
  • New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren on Boyfriend Material
    How? How was this book written? My vote is witchcraft. What a study in character development. It's a how-to without even trying. I'm going to treat this novel like I do my favorite cardigan and buy 5 copies for when one wears out. Everyone needs to read this
  • New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann on Glitterland
    Brilliantly written, dangerously good, immensely satisfying. I love this book. Deeply. Eternally. My favorite romance of the year
  • New York Times bestselling author Laura Kinsale on Glitterland
    Simply the best writer I've come across in years
