Description

Bridgerton meets The Ex Hex this witchy season with this oh so spicy romantasy Regency romcom!

‘Do you want to see what witches can do?’

Lady Tiffany Worthington has always had a special talent for making the world around her come to life – whether she wants it to or not – but it’s only with the arrival of her mysterious great aunt Esme on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo that she learns she’s a witch … and that the magic she’s long feared is actually a gift to be embraced.

Now, as she’s exposed to a side of London she never knew existed, one with sea creatures, magical portals, time travel, and a handsome duke from a faraway land with a dashing scar that makes him look like a pirate, Lady Tiffany discovers that despite what the ton might decree, there is no limit to what she can do … or who she can be.

I loved this book. This was a great mixture of historical fiction, witches and pirates with a great romance thrown in for good measure. The unique magic suggestion were brilliant, I loved some of the new twists. You'll have to read it to find out!

Hex and Hexability was the cozy witchy read I needed. Kate is such an amazing writer and really brings you into the story. Loved this addition to her previous books!!!

Regency with a twist and perfectly done. This was a fantastic read, inventive, fun, original and very true to regency history, which I loved. Georgette Heyer meets Deborah Harkness. I've read all three of Kate Johnson's witchy books and she's surpassed herself with this one. No one writes such brilliant independent heroines quite like she does or rakish heroes with an understanding side.

I've read one other Kate Johnson, book and was eager to read the next "Hex" novel she wrote. I have not read all her books, as my TBR is bigger than one of my bookshelves at the moment (only slight exaggeration). Hex and Hexability was an overall quick and enjoyable read, with a few twists and turns along the way.

First off, I loved that for a Regency Era novel, Johnson embraced the "Tiffany Problem," or the problem when things in a historical novel are true but are almost too unbelievable for the reader. Naming the main character Tiffany, was definitely a fun little nod to the fact that Tiffany is not just a common name now, it's historically been a popular name for centuries.

Tiffany at first does not realize that she is a witch, even with some odd events that follow her before meeting her Aunt Esme. The story follows Tiffany as she discovers her powers and addresses a few magical crises along the way. Heads up, if you're adverse to the word "bosom," this is a word that frequently crops up in this historical romance. This book definitely kept my interest, and was a blend of romance, adventure, and witchcraft. Tiffany does start the novel as a very naive unwilling debutante, wanting nothing but to be independent and anti-marriage. The reader gets to watch as she evolves and learns of new ways life can be lived. We also get to see what happens when people have their own bias and misinterpret what others are communicating to us. It's a little like Bridgerton with witches without the questionable consent (I have some strong feelings on a certain scene in the first Bridgerton book which completely turned me off the book as a series).

Please be advised that I received an Advance Reader's Copy (ARC) from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was invited by the publisher to read this book. And I LOVED it. I mean just yes to it all - the play on the title, the Regency era setting, London, all of the magic elements with portals and creatures, all of it. The book is about Lady Tiffany who learns she is a witch who eventually learns that her magic is not a curse, but if she flips her perspective then she is able to see how her magic could be useful and helpful. All within the most amazing setting, and with some funny moments to boot.

Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollinsUK/One More Chapter for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book immensely. When a young woman meets her great aunt, her world opens up to magic and self acceptance. Growing up without parents, her sister in law begrudgingly tutored her into a life of strict rules within the regency era. Fortunately, her skill as a witch is nurtured by her new family and friends and she finds a new world of adventure and love. There's humor, love and acceptance. I read this book on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
