July 2012 Book of the Month. Packed with romance and tinged with magic, Anna’s story captures new complications in her life as she manages being a witch with being in love! Having moved from London to Wicker House, Anna is soon dating the gorgeous Seth from her school. They make a beautiful pair but, despite her determination, Anna seems less and less able to control the magic that just seems to burst out of her. A visit to her old home in London predicts her dilemma but no one knows how to help her manage it! The second novel in the Winter trilogy, this follows the critically acclaimed debut A Witch in Winter.


A Witch in Love by Ruth Warburton

Anna still finds it hard to believe that Seth loves her and has vowed to suppress her powers, no matter what. But magic - like love - is uncontrollable and soon, Anna is being hunted. Abe wants Anna to embrace her power, while Seth is pushing Anna to accept that his feelings are real. She finally does... a moment too late. Suddenly, it's like the Salem witch trials all over again: burnings, torture and faceless judgements. In the face of the ultimate betrayal, who will save her?


'Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!' - Jade, at Ink Scratchers

'One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads...' - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries

'It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting.' - The Bookseller

'Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability...' - Cait from The Cait Files

About the Author

Ruth Warburton

Ruth Warburton grew up on the south coast of England in Lewes; a small town with a long history. After leaving Lewes she studied English at the University of Manchester, and there developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts. While researching A Witch in Winter she found herself returning to them, in particular Beowulf and Le Morte d'Arthur, and seeds from these mixed with ancient Mesopotamian demons, Voodoo spells, Tudor superstitions and 15th century witch-hunting guides, to create the Winter Trilogy. Ruth is now a publicist for adult fiction at Random House and lives in North London.
