Title: Academy Obscura: The Flame Within

Author: Cassia Briar

Genre: Reverse Harem, Paranormal Romance

A flawed heroine. A twisted magical college. Three sexy teachers.

I didn’t know magic existed…until I found my birth family after a life in foster care. They tell me there are rules, but I don’t believe them. Naturally, I break one of those precious rules on the night of a full moon, and am forced to enroll at Academy Obscura. But I don’t fit in. After all, I’m not a witch, vampire, fae, werewolf, or shifter. Am I?

Worse, the penalty for messing up at the Academy? Death. My only chance of survival lies in the hands of three frustratingly hot teachers. Jaxon, a powerful but untrustworthy witch. Liam, a fae who avoids my flirtations. And Angel, the alpha werewolf who enthusiastically tears apart my enemies, but openly broods when I’m around.

I am drawn to all of them. But, how can one woman have three men?

  3. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading What Happens Next by Christina Suzann Nelson. It’s a great story!
    “Dora placed the flyer in a box and covered it with the lid. She looked around the house, so empty now that Paul had moved from their spare bedroom to an apartment downtown.”
    I hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤️📚

  4. That’s a great first line. I’m currently reading Alaskan Mountain Search by Sarah Varland. The first line is: “It was never truly dark at this time of year–mid June–in the land of the midnight sun.” Have a great week!
