Ensconced in dark trees that whisper of a twisted evil, the tiny village of Hannigan lives by two rules:
No one is to go into the Wood at night.
No one is to go into the Wood alone.
Felicity Devonshire is about to break them both.
Trapped in a life of abuse and neglect, Felicity has long carried a torch for the one man in Hannigan that could save her — the handsome son of the squire, Laurent Lakewood.
When a mystical man in the Wood offers her the key to everything she has ever dreamed of, he only asks for one thing in return… a kiss.
Now, Felicity is the talk of Hannigan, engaged to the wealthiest bachelor in the village, but the enchantment she has placed upon Laurent has gone awry, and Felicity has been plagued by nightmares of the Wood ever since. What is more, the man she is truly falling in love with is certainly not her betrothed.
The darkness that lives in the Wood threatens to swallow her as disturbing secrets press in on all sides, and Felicity is forced to concede that there may be truth in the old saying, be careful what you wish for.
