Jeremiah Wilcox's Navajo wife died cursing his name — and cursing all the sons of his line to a life spent alone. Doomed to a solitary existence, Jeremiah has done his best to come to terms with his fate. But when the enchanting, widowed Lorena arrives in Flagstaff, Jeremiah may have to reexamine everything he believes about the curse — and his own heart.

As the future prima, or head witch of her clan, Angela McAllister is expected to bond with her consort during her twenty-first year, thus ensuring that she will come into her full powers at the appointed time. The clock is ticking down, and her consort has yet to make an appearance. Instead, her dreams are haunted by a man she’s never seen, the one she believes must be her intended match.
But with time running out, and dark forces attempting to seize her powers for their own, Angela is faced with a terrible choice: give up her dreams of the man she may never meet and take the safer path, or risk leaving her clan and everyone in it at the mercy of those who seek their ruin.
