"A niftily done short romance in a satisfyingly gender-role-reversed world."
- K.J. Charles, author of Spectred Isle

In the world of the Harwood Spellbook, 19th-century Angland is ruled by a powerful group of women known as the Boudiccate - but in order to become a member of that elite group, any ambitious young politician must satisfy tradition by taking a gentleman mage for her husband.

Amy Standish is a born politician... but Jonathan Harwood is her greatest temptation. On the night of the Harwoods' Spring Solstice Ball, in an underwater ballroom full of sparkling fey lights and danger, Amy will have to fight the greatest political battle of her life to win a family and a future that she could never have imagined.

It will take an entirely unexpected kind of magic to keep everything from crashing down around her.

Warning: this novella contains forbidden romance, dangerous magic, and political intrigue in an underwater ballroom. What could possibly go wrong?

Published first in the anthology The Underwater Ballroom Society on April 30th, 2018.

"Spellswept by Stephanie Burgis somehow makes room for EPIC ROMANCE and ADORABLE FAMILY LOVE and MENTORSHIP and POLITICS and MAGIC and CHANGING SOCIETY and I think I actually squeed aloud at several points because it's JUST. SO. LOVELY."
- Starship Library

"Stephanie Burgis is a fresh new voice and I can't wait to see what she does next."
Ilona Andrews
