Jane Boyle is happily living in Paris and just starting to
put her architectural talents to use when handsome and
shamefully rich Malcolm Doran literally sweeps her off her
feet. Their connection is instant and electric. After a
very short whirlwind courtship, Malcolm proposes and Jane,
dizzy with love and excitement, accepts.
She says goodbye to her friends and co-workers in Paris and
leaves New York bound with Malcolm. Following a disturbing
side trip where Jane learns something very startling and
disturbing about herself, they finally arrive on American
soil. If Jane is amazed at the huge, crowded and bustling
city of New York, it's nothing compared to what she feels
when Malcolm takes her to his home to meet his family.
Residing in an enormous building of many floors, it seems
that all of Malcolm's family lives under one roof. However,
they all seem pleased to meet Jane, particularly his mother,
the formidable Lynne Doran.
Just as Jane is starting to get relaxed a bit, it starts to
become apparent that not only is Lynne rich and well
connected, but she's also very controlling. This applies to
everything from whether or not she will get to have a job
down to the type of wedding dress she will wear at her
wedding. Jane quickly learns to choose her battles with this
woman. She also learns many other disturbing things about
Lynne and her family. There are also many mysteries
surrounding them that Jane is determined to unravel.
But how do you fight a witch's magic? Why, with your OWN
magic, of course! Jane isn't completely alone, though. She
makes 3 very useful and wonderful friends who all know the
truth of what Lynne and her family are all about. These are
friends who are also willing to fight to the death for Jane.
And what of Malcolm? He's not around so often anymore,
which makes Jane wonder just how much he's involved in the
trap that Lynne has so skillfully set for Jane. Could the
love of her life really be a fraud?
These questions and others are answered along the way in
this delightfully evil story. This is the first in a series
by newcomer Gabriella Pierce. She has woven a web of
entertainment that includes mystery, chills, romance and
humor all spun together in one book. Watch out for Gabriella
Pierce. You're going to be hearing much more from her in the
Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into

But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran
clan, one of Manhattan's most feared and revered families,
Jane's fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she

upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical
abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing
to get them.
