A love that is too perfect....
An illusion that hides a deadly truth....
Will her magic be enough to fight the evil that lurks in the dark?
"Enchantment and romance abound in Schwab's captivating tale of a spell gone wrong, a love potion gone right, deceit, revenge, black magic and redemption."
Kathe Robin, RT Book Reviews
After a magical mishap that has turned her uncle's house blue, Miss Amelia Bourne is stripped of her powers and sent to London in order to be introduced into polite society--and to find a suitable husband. Handsome, rakish Sebastian "Fox" Stapleton seems to be all that and more. He is her true love. Isn't he?
At Rawdon Park, the country estate of the Stapletons, Amy begins to wonder. Several inexplicable events suggest that one sip of bitter punch has changed her life forever--that her love for Fox is nothing but an illusion. They were pawns in some mysterious game, and black magic has followed them out of Town. Without her powers, will she be strong enough to battle those dark forces and win? And will she be able to claim her heart's true desire?
