Magic & Mystery


Lady in the Grove

When Orion Drakos was told that not only was a mysterious lady in the grove, but that she lived there, he knew that he must investigate even though she was likely the imagination of a child. After all, Nightshade Manor had been in his family for generations so certainly he would know if someone was living there. What he learns, however, is that the lady isn’t the only secret that had been kept from him.

Lady Nina Jourdain has lived in the Sacred Grove of Nightshade Manor for most of her life. For the most part she had been content. She also could not leave.


The Vanishing Viscount

Lady Clara Westcott fell in love with Pierce Drakos, Viscount Harcourt, at the age of fifteen. That is also when everything went wrong- at least magically. When she encounters him again in London, Clara quickly realizes that she might very well be a danger to Harcourt and vows to keep her distance.

Pierce had considered Lady Clara sweet and pretty at fifteen but by eighteen, she had matured in a most delectable manner. However, every time he wished to draw near, she disappeared. Now that she would be visiting his family’s estate and attending his mother’s Witches’ Ball, he vowed to learn why she avoided him. What he hadn’t counted on was him being the one who now vanished.


The Viscount at Midnight

Lady Antonia Kerrigan could speak to animals, and they could speak to her. But nothing could have surprised her more than when she met a very charming wolf, especially since they were believed to be extinct in England. All he asked was for a temporary spell, to make him human for a day. Antonia had not agreed, yet that did not stop her from reviewing her great-grandmother’s spell book to see if it was even possible. Unfortunately, she read the wrong spell, but at least nobody was around who could have been harmed.

When Philip Cardwell, Viscount Chedworth saw Lady Antonia sneak off near midnight, he followed. He wasn’t certain what he’d find, but it wasn’t her sitting in the magical garden reading from a book. As he came from a family of witches, he knew better than to ask, so left her in peace. However, when strange things began happening to his body each midnight, she was the first person he confronted.

Antonia had not even completed the spell, so how could Chedworth be affected? Of course, none of that mattered because if she did not find a way to reverse it by the next full moon…well, she did not even want to contemplate the repercussions. But one thing was certain, no doubt Chedworth would hate her, especially if she did not free him, and he was the only man she had ever loved.
