Cordelia Gallowglass has the planet Gramarye at her feet. Her father is High Warlock, her mother's the powerful witch in the kingdom - and she's inherited awesome talents from both of them. On top of that, Prince Alain, heir apparent to the throne, has come asking for her hand. What more could a young woman - witch or not - want?
The wild young lady isn't sure she's ready to settle down. Cordelia decides she can take her time deciding whether to accept the Prince's offer of marriage... until she finds out she has enemies who oppose the union, and intend to ensure she never makes it to the altar - ever.
