Europe - 1351. Centuries ago a curse was placed on Ada's family; every seven days a woman from her line must sleep with a man - any man - or the entire coven will lose their powers forever. As a fledgling witch, it is Ada's turn to continue the seven-day cycle, but with the plague wiping out more men every day, who will she find to take into her bed? BBW Ada goes to a sacred grove to perform a ritual to bring a man to her, and a man appears. But he is as dangerous as he is handsome ...
Ulrich of Donau-Ries is a battle-scarred witch hunter, tired of the stranglehold the church has over his destiny. His heart hardened by violence and the woman who betrayed him, Ulrich is determined to never again fall in love. But that all changes when he finds Ada, naked and waiting for him. She is the first woman to loosen the chains around his black heart.
When Ada is accused of witchcraft, Ulrich seizes his chance to be close to her once more. In Ulrich's dungeon, they find solace in each other, and innocent Ada learns to embrace her lover's dark fantasies. But will Ulrich's heart thaw in time to save Ada from being burned alive at the stake?
Witch Hunter is a full-length novel with a cliffhanger ending, part 1 of a 3-part steamy romance series exploring Ada and Ulrich's forbidden love. The story contains elements of BDSM and dungeon play. If you like dark, brooding heroes, magical forces, and fearless heroines who know what they want, then this novel will have you shivering all over.
