Magic, mayhem, and romance in an alternate WWI

This might find a niche audience of one (hi, that's me) but if you made Pat Barker's classic queer WWI Regeneration trilogy into a romantic-historical-fantasy romp, you'd get Witchmark. Fresh from the trenches of an alternate-universe WWI, a physician (who secretly possesses unknown powers and a scandalous past) toils thanklessly at a hospital filled with shellshocked veterans, many of whom are reporting signs of some unknown and evil malady. Enter a handsome stranger, a dead body, abundant geopolitical intrigue, and several bicycle chases, and you've got a delicious page-turner that has me itching for the sequel.
