Evil awaits... Deep in the Louisiana bayou lurked the heart of darkness -- and Guy Poitiers's penance. A tragedy in his youth had torn him away from his sweetheart, Mary Deveraux, and consumed his life with guilt. Now only Mary's white magic and a single gold coin offered clues to his salvation.
Mary had never forgotten the Cajun boy who'd been her best friend. And now the grown-up Guy was inspiring desires she knew he shared. But to settle the past, they would have to travel deep into the swamp to confront the very root of evil before it struck, and ended their chance of ever finding a happy ending. The Circle: Four friends, four magical gifts, four loves to lost eternally.
