But when her boss disappears and her brother joins the army anyway, can the red-headed hornet save them both?

As a spinster daughter of a wealthy landowner, Evaine Elloch is a disappointment to her family. She has weak magic, little beauty, and no romantic prospects. When her father’s spend-thrift ways force the family to rent out their home and move to Bath, it opens a door to both possibility and dread, for the man Evaine loved seven years ago steps back into her life.
Now a wealthy mage captain, Balan Wynterval believes he has no interest in the quiet and plain Evaine who refused his marriage proposal when he was but a poor lieutenant. Yet, as they are thrown together by circumstance, he struggles to ignore the attraction he feels for her.
When an evil mage threatens the Elloch family, Evaine turns to Balan for help. Will he be able to overcome his pride, or will he also fall prey to the Mage’s magical influence and lose Evaine forever?
