While the everyday use of magic in England is normal among
the lower classes, it is shunned by the nobility. Lord Jack
Frayne, a respected army officer and member of the peerage,
hides a shameful secret -- a talent for magic which he must
suppress at all costs or disgrace his family. When a mortal
hunting injury puts him at death's door, his only chance to
live is Abigail Barton, a skilled healer and wizard, as
well as the daughter of a country peer. Her price: his hand
in marriage. At first he resists her, but soon he discovers
an irresistible attraction to his new wife as powerful as
the reawakening magical abilities he can no longer deny.
Together, Abigail and Jack challenge the ton's
prejudice against magic, solve the mystery surrounding the
curse on his family, and discover a love more powerful than
they ever imagined.
