Rose Thorne doesn’t want much. She’d like a man to love and for village idiots to stop claiming she’s a witch. Just because she does a little magic doesn’t mean they need to burn her at the stake. It takes ages to get the smell of smoke out of her hair. On her way home after foraging for mushrooms, she’s assaulted by two local lechers.

Her rescuer appears out of the mist - a tall, dark, handsome stranger with a mouth-watering body. Finally something in her miserable life is going right. Furthermore, her savior turns out to be mute, so he can’t ruin things by saying something stupid.

Can life get any better?

My rating:

A quick, hot, slightly funny, and steamy read about a witch and the mute who saves her from rape...Only to get turned into a frog after a night of steamy sex when the mob comes to get her and he tries to save her again.

Not much plot, but the scene of the trial was entertaining.
