Desire or duty…which will woo a witch?
Imogene Carvelle has always wanted a glittering career as an Imperial Mage. She wants to travel the empire and has no thought of marriage. But after returning home from a long mission away, she is in the mood for some fun. But sometimes the best plans go awry, and when Imogene meets the oh-so-delicious but oh-so-wrong Jean-Paul at a ball, her plan for just one night gets complicated…
Jean-Paul du Laq knows he has to marry. As the heir to a duq, he has to carry on the family line with the right kind of wife. And a career minded commoner like Imogene is absolutely not the woman he should be considering for anything more than a dalliance. But to him, Imogene shines brighter than the sun and he's determined to win her heart…
Courting The Witch is a prequel novella to the Four Arts series. It was previously published in the Warlords, Witches and Wolves anthology. This version features a new bonus second epilogue.

What people are saying about M.J. Scott
The Shattered Court - nominated for Best Paranormal Romance in the 2016 RITA® Awards.
"Scott (the Half-Light City series) opens her Four Arts fantasy series with the portrait of a young woman who's thrust into the center of dangerous political machinations… Romance fans will enjoy the growing relationship between Cameron and Sophie, but the story's real strength lies in the web of intrigue Scott creates around her characters." —Publishers Weekly
"Fans of high fantasy and court politics will enjoy The Shattered Court. Sophie is such a great heroine..." —RT Book Reviews
The Forbidden Heir
"This story was packed with action, political intrigue, scheming, and high stakes." Alyssa - Goodreads reviewer
"This is a marvellous book. The world building is unique and complex. The characters are well developed and likable and there is intrigue for days. If you've read the first book in the series it only gets better in this one." Lissa - Goodreads reviewer
"'Forbidden Heir' is a great rarity: a sequel that I liked better than the original book." Margaret - Amazon reviewer
The Unbound Queen
This was an incredible 3rd and final book in The Four Arts Series which did a wonderful job of tying up the loose ends and seeing great characters finish a wonderful adventure. Amazon reviewer
Cameron is delectable, Sophie is the right mix of practical, insanely talented and wary of the power broking that is going on around her. It was brilliant to watch her come into her power. Amazon reviewer
