The heroine is a witch who has lived 300 years without love (or a lover for that matter) and is in danger of losing her powers. She must "recharge" by mating with a powerful lover. How's that for a hook? Frustratingly, though, that promising idea wasn't enough to make this book anything more than average. I soon lost all interest in the story because of the irritatingly flawless (and often too stupid to live) heroine and all of the other cardboard-like characters that filled the book. If I had to sum up this story in one word it would be "emotionless". I felt no connection to the characters. Despite a few charming moments the story was bogged down with a weak conflict that was not consistently developed. I don't recommend this one unless you really have a thing for witches and relationships based entirely on lust.
