Reid Brennan, a bisexual charismatic CEO from a family of occultists, founded the cosmetics company Marauder's Inc to take the family business to the next level. From "Love Spell" perfume to the "Kiss Me" line of lipstick, Marauder's products spectacularly deliver on the promises of their names. Some would even say the company's ascension to the top was magical. When independent reporter Elise Bates senses there's far more than free market capitalism at play, she makes it her mission to expose the Brennan family's secrets. Reid is amused by the plucky journalist's determination and troubled by the information she uncovered. The two are then forced to team up when it becomes clear that there are powers which seek to topple the Marauder's empire from within and access the Brennan's secrets, hidden magical knowledge with the ability to destroy the world.
