The Massacre of Glencoe happened at 5am on 13th February 1692 when thirty-eight members of the Macdonald clan were killed by government troops who had enjoyed the clan's hospitality for the previous ten days. Many more died from exposure in the mountains. Fifty miles to the south Corrag is condemned for her involvement in the Massacre. She is imprisoned, accused of witchcraft and murder, and awaits her death. The era of witch-hunts is coming to an end - but Charles Leslie, an Irish propagandist and Jacobite, hears of the Massacre and, keen to publicise it, comes to the tollbooth to question her on the events of that night, and the weeks preceding it. Leslie seeks any information that will condemn the Protestant King William, rumoured to be involved in the massacre, and reinstate the Catholic James. Corrag agrees to talk to him so that the truth may be known about her involvement, and so that she may be less alone, in her final days. As she tells her story, Leslie questions his own beliefs and purpose - and a friendship develops between them that alters both their lives. In WITCH LIGHT, Susan Fletcher tells us the story of an epic historic event, of the difference a single heart can make - and how deep and lasting relationships that can come from the most unlikely places.

A full moon on Halloween means magic and mayhem are sure to follow. Erin Hawkins is a JAG agent with the jaguar shifters police force and she's all set to attend the shifters' Halloween party as a sexy witch, the first time she's not been on a mission in three years. Between the full moon's appearance and it being Halloween, havoc and magic prevail when she and a musketeer, an off-duty cop with the human police force and jaguar shifter, Bryce Jenkins, helps her thwart a bank robbery in progress. He wins her over with his sword-wielding antics, until she realizes he broke up her brother and his girlfriend's relationship the previous year. Bryce has wanted to take out Erin ever since he saw her in jaguar training, but he's not sure she'd be interested in someone who doesn't work for the jaguar policing force. Still, he's determined to show her a good time and give him a chance and to straighten out a matter about him and her brother's former girlfriend. From home invasions to bank robberies, have they got what it takes to watch each other's backs, eliminate the bad guys, and have fun too? They will, if it doesn't kill them first!

The Witch-Cult In Western Europe by Margaret Alice Murray The mass of existing material on this subject is so great that I have not attempted to make a survey of the whole of European ' Witchcraft \ but have confined myself to an intensive study of the cult in Great Britain. In order, however, to obtain a clearer understanding of the ritual and beliefs I have had recourse to French and Flemish sources, as the cult appears to have been the same throughout Western Europe.
