Written by Susan Caroll. A really riveting book about a woman who has magical powers who falls in love with a man she was raised to believe was an enemy. (the more serious plot includes something else but I can only remember her and the man). They were united by two rings that when touching allowed them to share experiences without actually doing anything. The characters are rich (not monetarily) and full of life and the story is sprinkled with humor in the midst of the drama.
I recommend you read it and the other books in the series if you get your hands on them.
