Clare Sager is an author of books filled with intrigue, adventure, darkness, and plenty of steamy romance. Her favorite trope includes forced proximity, enemies to lovers, and tricky Fae bargains that are more trouble than they are worth. Clare lives in Nottingham, the home of Robin Hood, and it’s no wonder she writes about characters that don’t play by the rules. When not writing, you will find her sketching, working out in the gym, or spending time with her husband and their two pet cats.
Beneath Black Sails is the first book in Clare Sager’s novel by the same name, first published in 2020. If you’re a fan of clever protagonists, strong-willed heroines, and sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance, this new adult fantasy is undoubtedly for you. It’s a perfect read for readers who enjoy reading books by authors like Sarah J Maas and Raven Kennedy.

Enter Lady Vice, a noblewoman turned pirate who has forged a notorious reputation for herself on the high seas. Legends depict her as a soulless, bloodthirsty sea witch, leaving no ship safe from her and her crew’s ruthless exploits. In reality, she is far from that image, embodying a confident and crew-loving demeanor.

Vice is more of a self-assured and crew-loving sea witch. Thanks to her fairy bloodline, she possesses a unique ability to control the sea’s elements when she’s on the sails. This gift allows her to navigate ships swiftly and deftly, steering them through treacherous obstacles. While ashore, she decides to attend a ball, driven by her curiosity about the substantial bounty placed on her head and her desire to gather information about the famed pirate hunter from the Navy, known for capturing the most cunning pirates. Little does she expect to encounter Knigh Blackwood, a Navy officer, on a quest to apprehend Lady Vice.

Knigh’s motivations are deeply personal. He seeks the bounty to rescue his sister, mother, and aunt from the dire circumstances they inherited following his father’s death. At the ball, he encounters a nice woman, only realizing afterward that she is Lady Vice herself. Fate takes a twist as he becomes tasked with infiltrating The Morrigan, the ship commanded by Lady Vice, and collaborating with a crew member to capture her. However, as he spends more time aboard the ship, Knigh begins to unravel the layers of Lady Vice’s character, discovering that the stories about her don’t quite align with reality.

Both Vice and Knigh harbor concealed pasts that profoundly shape their personalities and behaviors. Vice exudes self-assuredness and doesn’t accept any form of assistance from anyone. Thanks to the history of people leaving her when she opens up.

In contrast, Knigh carries the weight of a terrible act, believing himself to be a monster-hunting another monster. Their intricate dynamics make for an engaging narrative as their relationship develops. The story introduces an array of side characters whose decisions significantly influence the plot, leading to both favorable and adverse outcomes. While the story reaches a satisfying conclusion, it also paves the way for the next adventure with Vice and Knigh, leaving readers eager for what lies ahead.

The plot is action-packed, wasting no time in immersing readers in its fast-paced narrative. Rather than overwhelming readers with information dumps, the author gradually unveils fragments of Knigh and Vice’s pasts, cleverly interweaving their stories. The narrative allows readers to connect the dots alongside the protagonists, creating moments of anticipation and frustration as misunderstandings unravel.

Overall, Beneath the Black Sails offers a thrilling blend of action, romance, and complex characters that captivate readers from start to finish. With its seamless storytelling and well-crafted characters, it promises an engaging and enjoyable reading experience.
A Kiss of Iron is the first novel in the Shadows of the Tenebris Court series by Clare Sager. It is a captivating addition to Clare Sager’s Sabreverse series, offering readers a blend of court intrigue, smoldering passion, thievery, espionage, sensual banter, fae, dance, betrayal, consent, and adoration—all masterfully woven together in a substantial narrative.

The story is set in the same Sabreverse universe as “Beneath Black Sails” but can be enjoyed as a standalone series. It introduces Kat, a destitute lady of high social standing whose husband has mysteriously disappeared, leaving her on the brink of financial ruin, endangering even their home. Their marriage is devoid of love, and Kat is compelled to resort to nocturnal thieving on her Sabre cat to make ends meet. One fateful night, she steals from a fae lord belonging to the Dusk Court, setting off a chain of events that will change her life forever.

Kat’s situation takes a dramatic turn when she is summoned to the fae queen’s court and subsequently coerced into becoming a spy within the court’s intricate web of politics and intrigue. Her mission is to monitor specific members of the Dusk Court who are competing for the queen’s affection. The catch? Her primary target is none other than Bastian, the very fae she had robbed that fateful night and who had sworn vengeance against her.

This premise sets the stage for a story brimming with tension, deception, and burgeoning passion. The dance sequence and the growing connection between Kat and Bastian are particularly well-executed, and Sager skillfully maintains the tension throughout. The worldbuilding draws upon a rich tapestry of fae lore and Clare’s unique creations, immersing readers in a vividly realized universe.

It’s important to note that Kiss of Iron is not a standalone work and concludes with a bit of a cliffhanger, leaving readers eager for the next installment. While the story is rife with intrigues, it is the character journeys that truly shine. Kat grapples with PTSD and social anxiety, adding depth to her character. Bastian, too, undergoes major development, revealing hidden facets of his personality. Hints of his complexity are scattered early in the narrative. His interactions with Kat provide a sense of security, even as the story navigates the liar revealed” trope.

Overall, Kiss of Iron is a layered and compelling tale that captivates readers with its intricate plot and well-drawn characters. It’s a journey filled with secrets, emotions, and unexpected twists, making it a worthy addition to the Sabreverse series.
