#1 - The House Witch and The Enchanting of the Hearth
When Finlay Ashowan joins the kitchen of the King and Queen of Daxaria, he’s
an enigma. Which suits Fin just fine. He’s satisfied simply serving as the royal
cook, keeping nosy passersby out of his kitchen, and concocting some truly
scrumptious meals.

But Fin has a secret, one that may not stay hidden for long . . .
As his past begins to catch up with him, Fin must negotiate court politics and
stay out of trouble, together with his familiar, the fluffy black kitten, Kraken.

But things become even more complicated when he catches the eye of a certain
lady who just so happens to be part of the royal court.

Can Fin successfully hide his secret and protect his heart? Or will the chaos of
the castle and its good-hearted people get the best of him?
