Why read it?

2 authors picked Serpent & Dove as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

A laugh-out-loud snarky (and definitely steamy) enemies-to-lovers story about a witch hunter falling for the witch he’s supposed to kill. Though there’s a lot of romance and tension between the characters, we also get a good amount of action and exploration of this world of “Chasseurs” and witches. 

This book has all you can ask for: A great story, likeable characters, and an enemies-to-lovers romance that will make you swoon. The French setting was a refreshing take, and both the romance and the plot moved in a fluid way. The characters were layered and the story kept me on the edge of my seat.

From C.S.'s list on romantic fantasy.
