Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher. Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she's attracted to him. He falls head over heels for her and wants to marry her. But witches; unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads to a number of difficulties.
