A Nameless Witch
She is beautiful, ageless, and cursed with an unfortunate appetite for human flesh. To her undead mind, a good man and a good meal are one and the same, which leads her to swear off love altogether. Although afflicted with a seductive form most unsuitable for a witch, she hides her natural charms behind the guise of a grimy old crone, never regretting her chosen path...until she meets him.He is Wyst of the West, defender of the weak, sworn champion of decency, and avowed foe of evil. As a White Knight, he draws his strength from his purity of soul and his unbreakable vow of chastity. To give his heart to any woman, let alone an accursed witch, would leave him weak and vulnerable.United on a perilous quest to save their world from an insane sorcerer, the witch and the knight must fight against the overwhelming temptation drawing them ever closer together. Can she resist urges both carnivorous and carnal, lest their forbidden desires spell their doom?
