A beautiful witch with a violent past forms an unlikely love affair with a compassionate young doctor…until she fears she may end up killing him.

Tressalayne is a member of a murderous witches’ coven. An attack by witch hunters forces the coven to escape through a hastily constructed portal of magic. Ripped from her medieval world, the portal hurls Tressalayne and the coven’s leader, Morganna, into present-day East Texas. Critically injured in the passage, Tressalayne awakes in a hospital with no memory of her previous life.

Lucas Beckett finds himself in charge of the mysterious patient’s recuperation, and soon develops more than just a medical interest in her recovery. However, their blossoming relationship is marred by Tressalayne’s nightmarish flashbacks and uncontrolled manifestations of magic.


Witches cannot afford to bring attention to ourselves. The last thing we need is to leave a trail for the Hunters.

Clifton’s characters have depth and versatility.  Morganna, the coven leader, and Mason Crick, Chief Financial Officer of Good Shepard General Hospital, and murderous drug dealer, are truly loathsome individuals. While Dr. Lucas Beckett’s and Tressalayne’s growing love is unselfish and invincible.  Robert Lockstone is also a forbidding and intense witch hunter with one goal in mind, to hunt down and destroy Morganna.

The plot is unique and enjoyable.  Clifton throws you into the story with no time to waste and it is a continuous flow of witchery and energy that kept this reader captivated until the end.  If you enjoy fantasies, witches, time travel, and romance, give this book a try.
