One who turns him to fire when he kisses her, who charms everyone around her, and threatens to destroy both their lives as scandal looms over her. Joy falls hopelessly in love and not even the strongest magic can seem to turn her into a proper duchess, and how else will he ever love her? Passion holds them spellbound in an irresistibly funny and tender tale of two opposite but lonely hearts.More info →
