It's 1800. Mad King George is on the British throne, and
Bonaparte is hammering at the door. Magic is strictly
controlled by the Mysterium, but despite severe
penalties, not all magic users have registered. Integral
to many genteel households is an uncomplaining army of
rowankind bondservants, so commonplace that no one
recalls where they came from.
Ross Tremayne, widowed, cross-dressing privateer captain
and unregistered witch, likes her life on the high seas,
accompanied by a boatload of swashbuckling pirates and
the possessive ghost of her late husband, Will. When she
pays a bitter deathbed visit to her long-estranged mother
she inherits a half brother she didn't know about and a
task she doesn't want: open the magical winterwood box
and right an ancient wrong—if she can.
Enter Corwen. He's handsome, sexy, clever, and capable,
and Ross doesn't really like him; neither does Will's
ghost. Can he be trusted? Whose side is he on?
Unable to chart a course to her future until she's
unraveled the mysteries of the past, she has to evade a
ruthless government agent who fights magic with darker
magic, torture, and murder; and brave the hitherto hidden
Fae. Only then can she hope to open the magical
winterwood box and right her ancestor's wrongdoing.
Unfortunately, success may prove fatal to both Ross and
her new brother, and desastrous for the country. By
righting a wrong, is Ross going to unleash a terrible
evil? Is her enemy the real hero and Ross the villain?
