Now Greyson has received word of a young witch in Scotland, and he travels to Little Firkin to investigate,
only to find that the girl in question has a companion who is none other than Fanny Walcott, now a
ravishing woman. Audacious Fanny is more than his match in every way and as the sparks of challenge set

of faith to believe it.
