Paris, 1661. Exiled in France, Henriette of England wishes she could use her magic to gain entry at the court Louis XIV, the Sun King. Instead she must hide her magical talents, and accept an arranged marriage to the French king's younger brother. But her fiancé prefers the company of young men to hers, and court magicians are being killed by forbidden magic. When an accident forces Henriette to reveal her uniquely powerful gift for enchantments to Louis, he asks for her help. She alone can defeat the dark magician and aid Louis' plans to build the new, enchanted seat of his power-- the Palace of Versailles.
