'A delightful, romantic romp. . . the definition of a comfort read' Hannah Whitten on Half a Soul

Faerie godfathers are supposed to help young ladies find love. Unfortunately, no one told Lord Blackthorn that.

Effie has most inconveniently fallen in love with the dashing Mr Benedict Ashbrooke. There's only one problem; Effie is a housemaid, and a housemaid cannot marry a gentleman. It seems that Effie is out of luck until she stumbles into the faerie realm of Lord Blackthorn, who is only too eager to help Effie win Mr Ashbrooke's heart. All he asks in return is that Effie sew ten thousand stitches onto his favourite jacket.

Effie has heard rumours about what happens to those who accept help from faeries, but life as a maid at Hartfield is so awful that she is willing to risk even her immortal soul for a chance at something better. Now, she has one hundred days - and ten thousand stitches - to make Mr Ashbrooke fall in love and propose. . . if Lord Blackthorn doesn't wreck things by accident, that is.

From the author of HALF A SOUL comes a whimsical faerie tale set in a magical version of Regency England, with an enchanting Cinderella twist.

Praise for Olivia Atwater:

'A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency. . . I wolfed this down with great pleasure.' KJ Charles on Half a Soul

'Half a Soul is the perfect balm for these bad times. It's whimsical but never frivolous, sweet but not sugary, deeply kind rather than merely nice. I loved it' Alix E. Harrow on Half a Soul

'A perfect historical fantasy romance: warm, sparkling with magic, dangerous and delightful. I absolutely adored it.' Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne on Half a Soul

'Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart-and your hope' Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun

'Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm' India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels on Half a Soul

'Half a Soul is exactly the comfort read we all need. . . it sweeps you off your feet in the swooniest way possible' Megan Bannen, author of The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy on Half a Soul

'A charming and original take on both the fae and the Regency fantasy genre, with plenty of humour and heart. I couldn't put it down.' Heather Fawcett, author of Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries, on Half a Soul

MEDIA REVIEWS

A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency. . . I wolfed this down with great pleasure. - KJ Charles on HALF A SOUL

I've read these books more times than I can count. Atwater's stubborn, quietly radical characters defy the expectations of both society and fairy tales as they blaze new paths towards love and decency. Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart-and your hope - Shelley Parker-Chan, author of SHE WHO BECAME THE SUN

Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm. . . Dora and the Lord Sorcier have a place amongst my favourite fantasy romance couples ever - India Holton, author of THE WISTERIA SOCIETY OF LADY SCOUNDRELS

Half a Soul is exactly the comfort read we all need. This winsome, whimsical fantasy romance has much to say about privilege, justice, and the power of empathy, even as it sweeps you off your feet in the swooniest way possible - Megan Bannen, author of THE UNDERTAKING OF HART AND MERCY

A delightful, romantic romp that also deftly examines class and privilege, Half a Soul is the definition of a comfort read - Hannah Whitten

Half a Soul is the perfect balm for these bad times. It's whimsical but never frivolous, sweet but not sugary, deeply kind rather than merely nice. I loved it - Alix E. Harrow on HALF A SOUL

Half a Soul is a perfect historical fantasy romance: warm, sparkling with magic, dangerous and delightful. I absolutely adored it. - Tasha Suri, author of THE JASMINE THRONE

A charming and original take on both the fae and the Regency fantasy genre, with plenty of humour and heart. I couldn't put it down. - Heather Fawcett, author of EMILY WILDE'S ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF FAERIES

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and Ten Thousand Stitches had all the charm and whimsy of Half A Soul.
