Claudia owns Sweet Delights, a sweetshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is dating Leo Hale, a journalist clawing his way to the top of the game. Her friends live close by, with shops of their own. Claudia is also a witch, but she doesn't want to be. She lives her quiet life, hiding in her cloud of sugar and chocolate, pretending that magic isn't in her blood. She does this to protect herself and her secrets. Her well-crafted life is knocked off balance when she meets the gorgeous, green-eyed Boyd Burrows, a wand maker who seems determined that Claudia embrace her inner witch and use magic. To do so, to give in to the magical side of her, could be disastrous for everyone. Claudia needs to find a way to control herself and her magic, especially around Boyd whose very presence seems to draw out the wildness in her, unless she wants her world to be destroyed and her secrets revealed.
