Courtship and Curses takes place during the Regency era. Sophie's papa has something to do with the war office and is very busy trying to fight Napoleon. Sophie herself is making her curtsey to society this season. However, when she was a child she suffered a severe illness that left her with a limp. The same illness also took her mother, her sister, and her magic from her. She is shy about dancing, or even walking in public.
When a handsome young lord begins paying attention to Sophie she hardly knows what to think. But love does seem to be in the air. Sophie's aunt rediscovers an old beau who was lost to her as a girl. Sophie's father is showing signs of interest in the charming widow of an old family friend. Everything seems to be going well. Then Sophie's magic starts to trickle back. It isn't reliable, but it seems to show up at the best possible times because it seems that someone is trying to kill her father. And the assassin is using magic. Now Sophie must wrest her magic back under control in order to keep her family safe. But who can she trust?
