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. (Book 1 of the Witches of Cleopatra Hill)

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?
