THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEWOMEN WITCHES follows Charlotte and Alex. Charlotte is a witch, and one who prides herself on living by the lessons learned in Jane Austen novels. She’s prim and proper and she only steals from those who can afford it so she can redistribute the wealth to those most in need (even if it is sometimes herself). Alex is a pirate and where witches are all about flying under the radar, pirates are big and bold. It is hard to miss their flying battle houses, after all.

Witches and pirates are constantly at odds, but when a talisman is stolen, Charlotte plants herself in Alex’s house to go in pursuit. Still at odds, though also very attracted, the pair must work together. Perhaps they will see that a witch and a pirate might be able to get along after all.

This is the second book in the author’s Dangerous Damsels series. I haven’t read book one, but thankfully I didn’t feel like I was at all lost when starting the book. We do see the characters from book one in this story, but the author does well at catching the reader up. I will say after reading this book, I definitely would be happy to go back and read book one!

This was such a fun read. It is full of magic and silly antics that are over the top in the best way possible. I mean, you have to laugh at the idea of a house flying across the sky in a wild chase scene! I loved the tongue in cheek humor and the Jane Austen related quips throughout as well!
