Consort of Secrets - Adult Reverse Harem Goodness

In my recent foray into the work of Reverse Harem, I haven’t come across many that I haven’t enjoyed. Most do a wonderful job of building up HUGE amounts of angst and romance, that get the reader almost desperate for the promised “love connection” that these books promise. And when I mean love connection, I mean love with 3+ men.

In Chase’s CONSORT OF SECRETS the promise is five men. The main character Rose is a witch, in a world that knows they sort of exist, but does not openly admit their existence. Rose was friends with a group of boys as a child, a young girl on the verge of womanhood. Her father and stepmother on discovery of her friendships tore her away and forbad her from seeing these boys. Now over ten years later she’s back, engaged, but she can’t forget her boys. When she returns home, she discovers they haven’t forgotten her either.

The sexual tensions is almost immediate between Rose and your childhood friends, which is great for me, because I do think that the angst is the best part of this genre. But, paired with this is also a fantastic world that Chase has built. There is a lot of focus on the world building, which you don’t normally get in these very romance driven books. Does the world building kind of make the romances a little hasty… probably. But, if Chase would have put more into the romance, the world would have suffered – and I need to know about this world.

There was also a good mystery built into it – which I’m dying to find out more about. The interaction with the stepmother and fiancé is also pretty intriguing. I did think I had some of it figured out, but Chase did surprise me in the end with how she handled it. My overall take on this book was that I can’t wait to read the second one!

If you are looking for a good adult reverse harem, with a good bit of heat, but not all the focus on romance. This is the one for you. It’s also a good transition into the genre pick.

Every witch knows the rules: Stick to your own kind. Never reveal your powers to outsiders. Take a consort from the witching families or kiss your magic good-bye forever.

For years I've been quiet, obedient Rose Hallowell. I accepted the man my stepmother chose for me. But I never stopped missing my long-ago friends.

Now we're back on my childhood estate to arrange my marriage. The boys I grew up with? They're still in town—and they haven't forgotten me either. And damn if they haven't grown up well.

They've got no magic, no place in my life. But they're charming and sweet and infuriatingly hot, and I can't seem to stay away. The more I try to resist, the more secrets I uncover about my family, my betrothal, and everything I thought was true about the witching world.

I've been lied to. I've been betrayed. So to claim my magic and my happiness, I'll break every rule there is—and then some.

Don't mess with this witch. Every rose has thorns.

*Consort of Secrets is the first full-length novel in a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series. Take a dollop of gothic atmosphere, add a heaping of romantic angst, and mix it up with five enticing young men and a passionate witch just coming into her own.*
