Elena Denholm is a mild–mannered half witch. As a favour to her cousin, she agrees to meet with top Sydney lawyer, Jake Royston, to negotiate a property deal. Sparks fly immediately, but before they can even take a sip of wine, let alone explore where the sizzle might go, Jake is hit by a love spell and is helpless against his feelings for Elena.
Jake may be at her mercy, but Elena is keeping her hands off – exploiting humans is a no–no. But Jake's good looks and powers of persuasion are breaking down her resolve, and Elena knows she must do something fast.
Desperate to set things right before her resolve crumbles, Elena begins a frantic search to find the witch or warlock who hexed Jake and return him to his right mind, even if it means breaking her own heart...
Grace lives with her cousin Elena and her mother Elvira, and life is pretty damn fine, barring the warlock drought that has the coven's younger witches a bit itchy. Grace isn't worried – even if a suitable warlock were available, he wouldn't be interested in Grace. Ever since she raised her dead cat as a child, Grace's necromancy skills have put everyone around her on edge.
Then her childhood beau, Declan Mallory, returns from overseas. He's a battlemage and hot property. To Grace's dismay, she is but one face among many as the coven witches pull out all the stops to attract the tall, dark and handsome warlock's attention. Fortunately their childhood friendship still holds some sway, and Grace and Declan soon find themselves reconnecting on all sorts of levels. But there are dark secrets in the coven, and Declan's family is determined to shut their relationship down. But Grace has finally found her warlock, and she is not giving him up without a fight: not to the bitch-witches, not to his family, and certainly not to the past.
Earl Pressonville knows he made a mistake, but he never expected it to cost him his life. Well, most of his life. Some small part of him survives, but only as a shadow, a thought, a feeling...a purgatory of his own making.
When a young witch, Nea Royston, comes near with her reader sense, something about her gentle touch draws him back to awareness.
But there's a darkness that's also returned to Lake Macquarie, one that Earl has dealt with before. Having seen the light that Nea brings to the world, he knows that she will draw the darkness to her, and he vows to protect her at all costs. But Nea is looking for life, for love, for a future, and all Earl can ever offer is a dream.
