About the Author
Rachel Moore is a content marketer and writer living in Nashville, Tennessee. She graduated from the University of Evansville with a degree in creative writing, and she has never met a rom-com she didn't love. On the rare occasion she isn't writing happy endings, you can find her collecting dictionaries, drinking entirely too much coffee, and drifting through library stacks.
"Perfectly mixes gothic elements with romance and mystery. Moore incorporates the enemies-to-lovers trope wonderfully, penning rapid and engaging banter between the sassy Mateo and curious Este as they try to ignore their connection. This unique novel blends different genres in a magical way, and readers will happily lose themselves in its twisting passages. Recommend to lovers of gothic tales." -- Booklist (starred review)
