Still struggling to deal with the brutal murder of her younger sister, Jenny McAllister is just going through the motions, doing her best to pick up the pieces and move on with her life — a life she's not sure is really worth living at all.
Meeting Colin Campbell at a family event changes everything. Even though he's a civilian, Jenny begins to let him in. She knows that falling for someone who's not from one of the witch clans will only complicate her life, but she can't resist the attraction. However, Colin has issues of his own. He can't let Jenny know the truth — the truth that will destroy their budding romance. When he begins to unravel the mystery of Jenny's family, long-buried secrets come to light. Now Colin must decide between his duty and his heart. Will he protect the McAllister clan, or will he expose them to the world for his own personal gain?
