Kara harbors a secret love for Machias, but he must choose someone other than a scullery maid as a wife. More
All Hallows Eve looms near, and encroaching evil shall have its way if a marriage filled with true love and pure magic does not take place. Machias must choose a witch, something Kara never hopes to be.

Machias's marriage announcement promises to burn Kara's hope to cinders…unless something truly magical happens at the All Hallows Eve ball.
