Madeleine Nightingale is her magician brother's assistant. They travel town-to-town performing as The Magic Nightingales, but her brother dreams of being on the stage in a fine London theater. Madeleine wants him to be happy, so when she hears a famous theater owner will attend a Faire to be held at Sheffield Priory, she knows it's their chance. She will make sure their show goes perfectly . . . even if she has to use a bit of the true magic that has been her secret gift since childhood.

Everything is going according to plan until he chances upon Madeleine Nightingale and her brother. Thoughts of Allegra fade when he draws Madeleine into his arms.
But Madeleine isn't the easy conquest he'd hoped she'd be. Is it love? Or is it magic? And what is it going to take for him to convince her that he's thoroughly fallen under her spell?
