The life of gorgeous noblewoman Tessa Fitzgerald changes in an instant. It's eighteenth-century Ireland, and she suddenly gains magical powers from the Wizard Earl, an ancestor she never even knew. As Tessa experiments with controlling her newfound magic, her love life also heats up. She is drawn to handsome, sexy Braden O'Reilly, and the strapping nobleman only has eyes for her as well. They fall deeply in love and indulge in a passionate, sensual marriage. Their paradise doesn't last long, though, as it turns out Tessa has another admirer. Nerius, a wizard with his own powers, lusts after her. When his love is unrequited, he kidnaps Tessa and steals her magic, hiding it in a mystical orb. Terrified about what Nerius might do to her beloved husband, Tessa desperately plans her escape. She would never forgive herself if anything happened to Braden, but nothing is certain anymore. She simply doesn't know if she can regain her magic and overcome the wizard's evil plot-before everything she cares about is lost.
