Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Cate has six months to either announce her intention to marry, or the Brotherhood will select someone for her. But that isn't Cate's biggest problem: she and her two sisters are witches. If this is discovered by anyone, the Brotherhood will put them on trial, and they will be either expelled or put to death.

As if this isn't bad enough, Cate discovers a letter her mother wrote to her before she died:
     ...I do not know how to tell you this... 
If Tess is a witch, then the three of you may well be the three sisters of the oracle's last prophecy. The prophecy foretells that one of the sisters will be the most powerful witch born in centuries ...

Born Wicked is a fast-paced supernatural romance that had me reading and trying to guess what was going to happen next. Cate doesn't know whom she can trust or what she should do. Should she marry (and who should she marry?) Should she join the Sisterhood? And how can she keep her sisters safe when they refuse to try to harness their supernatural powers? This is a great book, if you want to just settle in and be taken to a different, strange world where there is not only love and romance, but also danger and intrigue.
