Blurb: What are you willing to sacrifice for true love?
Harris and Grant were both raised in an orphanage. They’ve known beatings, starvation—and falling in love. When the dangers become too great, they run away into the dark woods, and they come across a cottage made completely of sweet treats. What could one taste hurt? Well, it stirs the handsome witch that lives inside. Fearing his wrath, they run straight into the brutal orphanage owner they were fleeing from before. Their unlikely hero is none other than the witch, but does the handsome magician want to save them or devour them? As it turns out, a bit of both.
But when the cottage the witch is bound to is set on fire, Harris and Grant face a terrible decision. For the only way the witch can be free is by eating one of their hearts…

Review: I loved this take on Hansel and Gretel, it was unique and fascinating with amazing characters that really blossomed the story into a fantastic read. Harris and Grant grew up in a orphanage. Neither have had a great time of it as the head of the place is a cruel man.
The boys finally run away and find Dec, a witch in the woods. Unfortunately Mr. D finds them and what follows is decisions and futures to be made.
Twists and turns along with an amazing story line had me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. I loved it.
