Marisa is a modern day witch, living at the edge of the woods and at the edge of society, dispensing potions to help lonely souls find their true loves. Because of her inability to live among others, she doesn’t believe love is for her, let alone sexual fulfillment. She gets both when Conlon Maguire shows up at her cottage.
He wants a potion to win the heart of his true love, but the magic behind the potion sets its price. The price set on Conlon’s potion is that he must spend one night with Marisa, bringing her pleasure. As a servant of the Light, Marisa cannot refuse the price if Conlon agrees to it, but from the moment he touches her, she knows her heart and shields are in danger. How can she go through with it, knowing he will leave her at dawn to be with another?
