Holly McClure has it all: beauty, success, a great apartment in Manhattan, good friends, and a very sexy new boyfriend. And one more thing…a very rare magical talent. Holly is a witch.

There is magic in the big city…literally. New York City has a small, and very discrete, population of witches and wizards who live and love and go dancing just like everyone else. Holly McClure is one of them, a successful writer who tries to ignore her magical heritage, except when the local Magistrate needs her special gift in his coven. Holly is far more interested in Evan Lachlan, the handsome federal marshal who works with her best friend, lawyer Susannah Wingfield.

But trouble has come to the City, in the form of a black coven run by a murderous psychopath. The mysterious Noel is recruiting a lot of would-be Satanists for his rituals and he’d very much like to have Holly. Not for her self or her talents, but for her blood. Holly is something very special; not just a witch, but a Spellbinder. Her blood has the power to strengthen any spell or ritual, for good or for evil.
