Dating isn’t easy when you’re in the middle of a blood feud.
Anastasia Vila’s family can turn into swans, but just once she’d like them to turn into responsible adults.
After hundreds of years, they still cling to the blood feud with the Renard family. No one remembers how it started in the first place—but foxes and swans just don’t get along.
Vilas can only transform into their swan shape after they have fallen in love for the first time, but between balancing schoolwork, family obligations, and the escalating blood feud, Ana’s got no time for love. The only thing keeping her sane is her best friend, Pierce Kent.
But when Pierce kisses Ana, everything changes.
Is what Pierce feels for her real, or a byproduct of her magic? Can she risk everything for her best friend? And when the family feud spirals out of control, Ana must stop the fight before it takes away everything she loves.
This Entangled Teen Crave book contains language, violence, and lots of kissing. Warning: it might induce strong feelings of undeniable attraction for your best friend.

Sometimes turning into a swan isn’t the weirdest part of your day. Especially when you add foxes, family feuds, and best friend who kiss surprisingly well.
What was your inspiration for writing this book? Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?
I have written about vampires, fae, ghosts, werewolves, and witches. I love writing paranormal stories and I was itching for something different—something magical I hadn’t yet explored.
I went through an encyclopedia of magical creatures searching for inspiration (inspiration isn’t mail-order—sometimes you have to hunt!) and swan maidens just jumped out at me.
Everything fell into place surprisingly quickly after that!
Tell us about the main character(s).
Anastasia Vila’s family is full of magical secrets, swan shapeshifting and family feuds, but she’s more worried about finishing high school. She can’t get her feather cloak until she falls in love but she can’t find anyone she likes even half as much as her best friend Pierce.
Pierce Kent works at the Shakespeare Café and lives in a rundown cabin with his eccentric grandmother and his two brothers. He loves books. And Ana.
But Ana doesn’t know that.
Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?
‘When your day started with decade-old battle-blood and your aunt singing about making a harp from your bones and your hair, it’s probably best just to go back to bed.”
Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing? If so, why?
This book was a pleasure to write. I did have to remind myself that for the first time I wasn’t writing a paranormal adventure with romance, but instead a romance with paranormal adventure. That meant more kissing—and that’s never a bad thing!
What sort of projects do you have going on right now. Any new books coming out?
I’ve started writing about Ana’s cousin Mei-Lin! She’s such fun, perky and cheerful and unruffled by things like kidnappings and bad hair days.
It was great having you on the blog today! We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!
Thank you so much! Happy reading everyone!
