When a simple touch can hurt or heal, do they dare take a chance on love?
LaRisa spent her life as the town outcast. Whispered to be a witch, she grew and sold healing herbs to the very people that shunned her. Because of the gift she was cursed with at birth, she fears touching others. She knew she was destined to be a spinster as well. Until she meets a man that isn't afraid of her.
The beautiful auburn haired witch instantly enchanted Strykes, but falling in love with her was not something he should do. Haunted by his past and of what he could become, makes him leery of love. Though his hands ache to caress her, he is afraid he will hurt her. Or worse.
When his outlaw past catches up to him and sends them running for their lives, the love between them grows. As well as their fears. LaRisa has no choice but to help him when he is wounded, even at the risk of killing him.
