Try not to fall in love with this series. I dare you.
Puabi is the darkest of the Dark High Witches:
Those who extend their lives, their vitality, their youth, by stolen power. She has taken many lives to preserve her own. But to live this way demands a price. A rending of the soul. All that’s good moves on.
She has loved only once, a man who betrayed, humiliated, and abandoned her. A man who didn’t care that she’d given birth to his dead son, while he was crossing deserts in search of his lover. Puabi had vowed as she buried her child that she would live long enough to exact she’d vengenace, no matter what it took.
But her chance for vengeance has come and gone. Such a disappointment. Her love had left her to burn in a blazing fire. And she did burn, until she threw herself into the sea.
But Immortals don't die easily…
So she rides the ocean currents, drowning, reviving, over and over. And each time she's submerges into memories of a past she'd thought long buried. The seas rinses away the sands that have covered thousands of years of her story. For she did not love only once. She had loved before, a love of innocence, and sheer perfection A love that had been everything. Everything.
Eventually, she is pulled from the sea and into the arms of an ordinary mortal man.
She’s angry at being saved…
She’d been ready to die. Sooner or later, her power would expire. Without another immortal’s heart–and she knew she would never take another–she would die. It was time. Past time.
But it is no accident the ocean’s currents carried her to this particular island, to this particular man. The Goddess has brought her this way. For a part of Puabi is missing, the part that can make her whole again.
Though he doesn’t yet realize it, Matthew is the only one who knows where to find it. And in the process, he, too, will find what he thought he’d lost forever, and mend his broken heart with the immortal, eternal power of love.
Try not to fall in love with this series. I dare you.

But then he lives again…
300 years later, he loves her again, tormented by hazy memories of a past that can’t be real. She tells him of another lifetime, claims to be immortal. Though he knows she’s deluded, he can’t stay away. And the Dark Witch after her heart is far closer than either of them know.
