Vonda Winterbourne is, sadly, a lady. Much to her regret. And her parents expect her to act like one. That includes marrying a nice white witch who can provide her safety, companionship, and all the comforts one could desire in their gilded cage.
Hiram Nádasdy is no gentleman. He’s a black witch with a reputation that strikes terror in the hearts of his enemies. But not in the girl. No, the girl is fearless, reckless, and determined to know him. He ought to reveal the darkness lurking in his heart and scare her away before it’s too late, but he’s curious about her as well. And, frankly, he’s not sure it would work.
Black witches don’t befriend white witches, and white witches don’t fall in love with black witches. They certainly don’t marry them.
Or do they?
Rue’s parents have always seemed like opposites. Vonda Winterbourne is a lady from a white witch family and Rue’s father, Hiram Nádasdy, a black witch, has quite the ruthless reputation. So how did these two end up together? If you have read the series, then you know, black witches eat white witches hearts. Eep.
Narrated by Stephanie Richardson, Edwards pulled me into the story and I quickly devoured this in one sitting. Hiram is smitten with Vonny “Vonda Winterbourne” but knows his father will never approve. I adored Vonny, and she is the reason the two get together. Hiram never stood a chance.
I am glad Edwards gave us their story. Fans of the series will appreciate the context it gives to Black Wings, Grey Skies, the fourth novel.
Despite its length, the author gave us a full story with swoons, banter and understanding. I love the Black Hearts Bureau series and highly recommend listening to them.
