Descended from the Celtic goddess Brigid, Selah Kilbrid is bound by immortal law to serve humankind. But as the last goddess born in the New World, she must conceal her power to heal or risk being charged as a witch. For 18 years Selah safely navigates the narrow gap between duty and self-preservation - until the day a prominent minister uncovers her secret. Already tempted by her large estate, he soon covets her power and demands marriage in exchange for his silence.
Selah Kilbrid may descend from the goddess Brigid, but her heart beats - and breaks - the same as any human's. Yet enduring the scorn of London's most noble lords and ladies is a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness. Selah would endure much more for love, and her betrothed, Lord Henry Fitzalan, is prepared to challenge anyone foolish enough to stand in their way, even another goddess born.
