Alyxandra Harvey | Top 5 Ways that Magic Makes Love Way More Complicated

February 24, 2016

In LOVE ME, LOVE ME NOT, Ana is a swan maiden: she can control the weather, heal with herbs, make magic arrows with her hair, and sing songs to make you fall in love. But that doesn’t mean everything, especially love, comes easy for her. Is this why Shakespeare said, “The course of true love never did run smooth”?!?

  1. Singing Magic Songs:
    Yes, Ana can sing songs to make you fall in love. Or songs to make your head explode. See? This is already complicated.
  2. Feather Cloak Complications:
    If you don’t fall in love, you can’t get your feather cloak. No cloak, means no turning into a swan, which means possibly going crazy and living in the woods eating fish heads like Ana’s Aunt Morag. Your future is looking kind of weird already.
  3. Magic Cupcakes!:
    So yummy! So tricky. Some spells make you fall in love, some make you fall out of love. So then…is it really love? Who knew chocolate frosting could be so philosophical?
  4. Magic can be a Little Unhygienic:
    Sometimes magic involves flower petals and water left under the moonlight. But sometimes it requires the swan-blood of your third great-grandmother that your family keeps in a jar. Try wearing that on your first date.
  5. Who Has Time for Homework?:
    Failing high school because between swan magic and blood feuds, you have no time to do your homework – aren’t magic and love complicated enough on their own?

About Alyxandra Harvey

Alyxandra Harvey

Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long as they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream.

Among her favourite books are ‘The Wood Wife’ by Terri Windling, ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte Bronte, and of course, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen. Elizabeth Bennet is her hero because she’s smart and sassy, and Mr. Darcy is, well, yum.

Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with husband and their dogs. She likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.



Love Me, Love Me Not

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.
Including, maybe…Pierce.

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.
