Claire is an outcast, the daughter of an infamous witch, and a woman in love with a man who is not only forbidden to her but does not even know that she exists. She is forced to leave behind her home, her family, and her love, to embark on a soul-searching journey and discover the truth of her origins. Her journey becomes a legend.
James is a charming, beautiful man. He is wealthy, brilliant, and heroic. He is the sort of man that would never have given a girl like Claire a second glance, but her clever charm and her innocence draws him to her. He finds himself spell-bound by her, bewitched by her. They are an unlikely couple from the beginning, and yet he awakens in her a fire that could never be extinguished.
