"Cats ain’t the only ones who like cream,” he teased."
This was so much fun!
I was a little disappointed at first that this wasn't a full Rook/Dominic story since I enjoyed their prequel short story "The 13th Hex" very much.
But it didn't take me long to warm up to the flamboyant and snarky Cicero and the gentle and good-hearted Tom. They were a perfect familiar/witch match, even though they didn't think so at first.
I really like how Jordan L. Hawk manages to write not only sweet and steamy romances, but also captivating and suspenseful mysteries. I was on the edge of my seat more than once.
This was a great romance as well as a well-written mystery that's set in a quasi-historical New York at the end of the 1890's.
4 out of 5 stars, would definitely recommend!
Thanks to Julie & Momo for the BR!

I shouldn't be surprised that I loved this short story. I mean, it's Jordan L. Hawk, y'all.
There are a lot themes going on in just 53 pages:
And yet the pacing of the story was just right and the world-building was awesome and immediately sucked me in. I especially loved how witches depend on their familiars to do magic.
I am totally looking forward to read the next (full) novel in this series, "Hexbreaker".
