Beyond the Pale by Henry L. Herz
"Cover:
It looks like the cover is hand drawn and that's a thing I really like! It looks like the woman is curious about something (going into the woods).

“A heart can only break so many times. I'm not saying it fails entirely: just that it mends the wrong way. It warps. It's stitched together loose and askew and it doesn't work as it should.”
Gillian Philip, Firebrand

“My woodland lair was beautiful: a clearing that was green with life. It smelt of summer and rain and newness. It was patterned with shifting light and shade, alive with the trill and whistle of flirtatious birdsong. Oh, this was too lovely a day to die, too lovely to kill.”
