A lush and decadent gothic novel following a young woman’s journey into a glittering world filled with illicit magic, romance, blood debts, and witchcraft in the aftermath of World War I.

On Crow Island, people whisper that real magic lurks just below the surface.

Magic doesn’t interest Annie Mason. Not after it stole her future. She’s on the island only to settle her late father’s estate and, hopefully, reconnect with her long-absent best friend, Beatrice, who fled their dreary lives for a more glamorous one.

Yet Crow Island is brimming with temptation, and the most mesmerizing may be her enigmatic new neighbor. 

Mysterious and alluring, Emmeline Delacroix is a figure shadowed by rumors of witchcraft. And when Annie witnesses a confrontation between Bea and Emmeline at one of Crow Island’s extravagant parties, she is drawn into a glittering, haunted world. A world where the boundaries of wickedness are tested, and the cost of illicit magic might be death.

To those who are bright and young; to those who are wild and wicked; welcome to Crow Island. 

Praise for Wild and Wicked Things:

“Entrancing, seductive, and decadently beautiful. Here is a deep, sensuous exploration of the bonds between three very different, complex women that readers won't soon forget." —Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author 

"Haunting, immersive, and seething with dark magic."―Alexis Henderson, author of The Year of the Witching

"Brimming with romance and gilded with danger, Wild and Wicked Things is a heady, lyrical gem of a book."—Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author

The narrator was beautiful and had wonderful character work. The book itself felt gorgeously written but slow and circular. The characters made the same choices with the same results multiple times. The romance seems forced then rushed. I found myself hating one of the main characters who was given so many chances and remained irredeemableā€¦but everyone loved her and wanted to keep her alive. It was not my favorite book but the author had incredible language that did make the reading fun even if the plot was a bit lost for me
