Cynthia Gael lives in South Carolina in a small log cabin built in 1817. She writes in a loft described to her, years before she saw it, by a psychic, thus influencing her already vast interest in psychic phenomena. Her other interests include: all forms of paranormal phenomena, history, literature, the literature of history, the history of literature, and dogs. She is a firm believer in magic in all its forms, thus she believes she’s lived many times before. Cynthia often draws inspiration from these past lives, where she existed in ancient Egypt, medieval France and Victorian England, among other places and times.
A fire contained, consumes…
No one knows better than Tommy Hopkins why Anya Blanchett had to leave the town she grew up in; her family was murdered, her house burned, and she’s the next target. Tommy knows—because Anya’s on the run from his own family-owned company, WFG Ltd, whose incredible wealth is based on one single thing: the vast power they drain from witches. And Anya is a witch.
Anya’s love for Tommy is too strong for her to withstand; she cannot stay away from him. When she returns to the little town of Manning, Tommy becomes more determined than ever to ensure her safety, no matter the cost. But Tommy isn’t the only member of the Hopkins family aware of Anya’s return. His cousin, Kinsey Hopkins, has been searching for Anya since her escape. Kinsey has dark and evil plans, for Anya, for Tommy, and for the very future of WFG.
Tommy will do anything to protect Anya from Kinsey and WFG. But can he? Or will the three-hundred-year-old curse cast upon his bloodline finally destroy him and the girl he loves more than life itself?
For Tommy Hopkins, rich and well-traveled, the idea of witches is ridiculous. When he turns nineteen, Tommy will be the new Witchfinder General, a line that stretches back to the original, Matthew Hopkins. The Witchfinder General directs WFG Ltd., the richest company on the face of the earth, providing clean, non-polluting power-though few know the power they sell is drained from witches. Then Tommy meets and falls in love with Anya Blanchett, poor, friendless...and a fire witch of an ancient line. Now Tommy must learn to believe so he can save the girl he loves-or is he destined to turn against her?
