Sicili and the Penniless Lad by Rachel C. Neale

Ivy Ferthing has been out of society for five years due to famous, engorged rumors that destroyed her reputation. Now, just shy of nineteen, she has promised to play the part of propriety for her mother’s sake, but Ivy is an outlandish force to be reckoned with, and her true nature knows no shame––especially when it comes to an answerless beauty like Sicili Windihill.

Sicili Windihill is answerless, and never more than in the presence of Grace, the defiant half-naked painting that haunted her childhood. Now, having returned to the gossiping county of Wiltshire after six years of living in London, she is once again at the mercy of her father’s scheming ways. No sooner is she reunited with Grace and the tumultuous feelings it brings up then she discovers her father is harboring a grand, obnoxious plan––one that involves a devastating ultimatum.

They meet at a ball. A tantalizing tryst of wit, courage, fear, and unspoken admiration are quick to follow.


Watts, an unassuming librarian recently deployed from the graces of aristocracy for wanting to be woman in pursuit of a career, suffers an immediate overthrow of her mundane existence when she meets a mysterious independent, Em, who claims to be the last of a long line of Gatekeepers and a monster hunter by trade. 


After volunteering her subconscious for a makeshift experiment, Watts discovers her younger sister, Lily, has been taken. To save her, Watts must dive deeper in Em’s experiment – a dark memory world full of gates, graves, and fog – and navigate the fringes of a war Em fights against shadow monsters who harvest human memories. 


A fast paced, witty, lesbian romance full of mystery, Beyond the Grove, a Lantern Flickers balances the parallels between loneliness and loss and champions the courage it takes to choose love.
