 From Back of book:
He's lost, trapped, doomed for all eternity...
Rich, titled, and undead, gentleman vampyre James Maitland, Lord Kettering, fears himself doomed to a cold and lonely existence-trapped for decades in an abandoned castle. Then, beautiful Scottish witch Blaire Lindsay arrives, and things begin to heat up considerably...
Unless he can persuade her to set him free...
Feisty Blaire Lindsay laughs off the local gossip surrounding her mother's ancestral home-stories of haunting cannot scare off this battle-born witch. But when she discovers the handsome prisoner in the bowels of the castle, Blaire has no idea that she has unleashed anything more than a man who sets her heart on fire...

Before the current Coig of witches there were their mothers. They are five coven sisters, each having different magic, but all together become very powerful. This book starts off with a scene from the mother lives. Based on a vision from Fiona Macleod, Caitrin's mom, the Coig decides take action in order to preserve the safety of Alpina Lindsay's bairn, soon to be Blaire. They find vampyre James Maitland, Lord Kettering and cast a spell that puts him into a dormant sleep and hide him at Briarcraig Castle.

This book is Blaire Lindsay's story, the battle-born witch that throws fireballs, and how she meets Lord Kettering. Upon the death of their father, Aiden, Blaires's older brother inherits Briarcraig Castle. After they arrive at the castle we see the mysteries start unfolding.  Blaire starts to realize there are things her mother never told her about. Why would she never mention her ancestral home? Most importantly, who is Lord Kettering and why would the Coig lock him in the castle and never tell anyone, especially when he appears to be the perfect gentleman?

James Maitland is furious when he wakes to find he has been trapped for decades in an abandoned castle. He wants to find the witches and make them pay for what they did to him for no reason at all. First he must find something that was taken from him and find out what it is about Blaire that draws him to her, besides her blood.

This is the second book I have read by Lydia Dare and she has become one of my favorite authors. I lost lots of sleep because I just wanted to keep reading a little more to see what happens next. I really liked all the characters and enjoyed getting to know Blaire. She is defiantly someone I would want to have as a friend. I liked how this book fit in and connected well with the others. Although this book can be read anytime, you might enjoy it more by reading the previous ones first, especially the one right before called The Taming of the Wolf. You will not be disappointed with this book or with Lydia Dare! 
I give this book 5 stars!

Contains mild language and sexual content
