The Dullahan isn't who
they said he was...
but neither is
Katrina Van Tassel.

Nothing is as it seems in Sleepy Hollow...

Cross the bridge into this gothic fantasy romance, filled with witches, mythical beings, and secrets you never saw coming.

When Katrina van Tassel is chosen by her parents to be sacrificed to the Dullahan for the safety of Sleepy Hollow, Katrina plots to run away, only to come face to face with the very being who should bring about her death.

But the Headless Horseman isn't interested in her sacrifice, but rather in how her volatile magic can save the town from the evil being summoned to the town.

Cross the bridge into the Hollow and pick up your next dark fantasy romance read.

Cross the veil into Sleepy Hollow...if you dare.

Hollowed is a new adult (18-24) gothic fantasy.

Due to mature content (not romance mature, violence and mental health mature), I don't recommend it for anyone under 17.

To be more specific, this is a gothic romantic fantasy, meaning the romance is a subplot to the fantasy plot.

Yes! There are no plans to continue this world at this time. This book is fully self-contained and has a HEA.

Nope! This doesn't even really rate a chili pepper rating.

They kiss quite a few times, and there's some nudity and tension, so there IS romance, but this is not a romance first story.

I'm not currently in talks with anyone to do special editions for Hollowed. If there's enough demand, I might consider doing one myself.
