[Read by Anthony Wren]
This tale of magic and romance set in Regency England will delight fans of Downton Abbey.
The Marquis of Wynstanton has become involved with one of the beauties of London Society -- Locadi, Lady Marshall. When her husband dies unexpectedly, the marquis sets out on a long journey to India and Nepal, hoping to avoid any gossip about their liaison.
Upon his return, he resumes the affair but soon begins to suspect Locadi of using black magic to entice him to her. Almost in a panic, the marquis returns to his estate, which he has neglected for so long, only to find, to his horror, that he has been cheated by the manager he left in charge.
At Wyn Castle he meets Flora Romilly, daughter of a distinguished author. She is known locally as the White Witch because she can heal ailments with plants and leaves from her herb garden and has worked wonders with his grandmother's rheumatism.
At first, Flora despises the marquis, disgusted at the way his people have been treated in his absence. But once she is persuaded to help him make amends and put matters to rights on the estate, things begin to change.
Unfortunately, fleeing London has not rid the marquis of Locadi and her evil magic -- and she's coming for him.

Barbara Cartland (1901-2000) was one of the world's most prolific novelists, writing an amazing 723 books in her lifetime, of which no fewer than 644 were romantic novels. Worldwide sales of her books have approached or exceeded one billion copies. She wrote her first book at the age of twenty-one; it became an immediate bestseller. Between the ages of seventy-seven and ninety-seven, she increased her output and wrote an incredible four hundred romances, as the demand for them was so strong worldwide. She wrote her last book at the age of ninety-seven. Her books have always been immensely popular in the United States, where in 1976 a pair of them occupied numbers one and two in the B. Dalton bestsellers list -- a feat never achieved before or since by any author. Cartland became a legend in her own lifetime and will be well remembered for years to come. Her books will always be treasured for their moral message, her pure and innocent heroines, her handsome and dashing heroes, her blissfully happy endings, and above all for her unwavering belief in the positive power of love.
