When two strangers request a hand of glory from the witch Briony, she is coerced into accompanying them to perform a sinister spell used by tricksters and thieves. Full of suspicion and prejudice, Briony takes with her a Vila imp for her protection.
To her consternation, Briony finds herself struggling against her attraction to the younger man, Gareth. She cannot possibly allow herself to fall in love with a thief, especially one who has the audacity to revile her lifestyle. And yet their mutual desire seems too strong to be denied.
Briony soon discovers she’s made a dreadful mistake. Can she undo the harm she has caused? And even if Gareth survives, could he welcome her into his arms once more?
