The Lonely Witch
Joy is having a terrible day, carrying her very sick brother Lance in her arms, when she first meets Noah. She is desperate to see her brother well again and has been told that Noah will be able to help her. Desperate, not knowing what else to do, she puts her trust into the mystery stranger’s hands.
To her relief, it seems her faith was not misguided, as Lance is healed by Noah in the most extraordinary way!
Furthermore, she finds Noah to be a kind and patient man, as he offers her and her brother food and shelter, to the relief of Joy who has been on the road travelling from village to village for a good length of time.
But it is only when a dramatic event occurs that Noah’s true identity and abilities are made clear. Joy then comes to understand the troubled and mysterious man much better, and more importantly, she comes to see that they are not so different, a thought that only serves to intensify the feelings that she has for Noah!
The Look of a Witch
Jess is taken by surprise when she discovers that she is being watched and followed. She is all the more stunned when she finds out that the identity of her watcher is a man named Gideon who has magnificent green eyes that resembles her own eye colouring!
And even more disturbingly Gideon, upon being questioned, tells her that he is a witch and that she is one too. He explains that has been following her since he noticed her hypnotising an innocent market seller with her magical ability, an action that revealed her to be the same kind as him.
Jess knows nothing about witches and has no real knowledge of her own true identity, which has been hidden by her folks. But now that Gideon has peaked her interest, she is ready to gain a better understanding of who and what she is. But even though she thinks she is ready to find out the truth of her identity, she had not counted on, at the same time, being so ill-prepared for the emotions and feelings that Gideon’s presence is able to provoke within her!
A Witch’s Inner Magic
Lara’s village is on the verge of being seized by a new order of witches who expect all other witches to join with them in their battle against humankind – and they will not take no for an answer!
Lara is very much concerned that the new order will follow through with their threat and punish her beloved village. But at the same time, she has other pressing matters on her mind – namely her childhood friend Dwight, a witch with no magic to speak of, who is wreaking havoc on her emotions as he tries to persuade her to run away with him so they can be together and escape any potential conflict.
But Lara will not leave the place she has grown up in, and which she calls home so easily, leaving Dwight with little choice but to stick by her side and do everything in his power to make sure his one and only love is protected!
The Witch’s Fight
Lord Daniel Clifford, a powerful witch, is woken up in the middle of the night by his maid Rhiannon, who comes to warn him about a group of witches called the new order who are on their way to imprison him.
Daniel is full of outrage at such an attack against him, but controls himself enough to listen to Rhiannon’s rational words and escape before they get their hands on him, allowing him to come back to fight them another day, when the odds are more in his favour.
Up until that point, Daniel had always been satisfied to avoid any decision-making with regard to joining the new order of witches who believe in enslaving all humans. But as he spends more time with Rhiannon and acknowledges his growing attraction for her, he eventually comes to understand the decision he must make and the powerful reason behind it!
