In a world where the occult is strictly forbidden, a practicing witch is a rarity. While most in her order have let the art die, Doris Gibby is much too stubborn to put her gifts away on a shelf to gather dust. Granted, she isn't doing any real magic. Doris mainly uses her spells to do a little cooking and tend to her garden. That is until she falls under the scrutiny of the brooding Inspector Maks Bryns. With her life and livelihood on the line, what is a poor witch to do? Doris decides that it's time to roll up her sleeves and tighten her corset. She must seduce the nosy inspector or poison him, whichever comes first. As the pair begin to fall in love, their relationship is put to the test when a necromancer, fueling his dark magic with death, arrives in Olde Wynned.
