Overview

An unsuspecting nurse is lured to an ancient family mansion, said to hold both ghosts and horrifying secrets, in order to care for three recently orphaned children.
Amberlyn Lyons has recently suffered a devastating miscarriage that has torn her marriage apart and shaken her faith. She quietly takes a nanny position at an isolated mansion without electricity, telephone, or ease of passage.
The moment she walks into Bloodmoon Manor, Amberlyn deduces that all things aren't as they seem. The eerily similar owners distrust doctors who, in thirty years, have been unable to cure their severely deformed daughter Katerina. Katerina both idolizes and despises Amberlyn for her beauty. Childishly cruel, Katerina enjoys tormenting the orphans placed in Amberlynn's charge by telling them tales of the malicious ghost that haunts the decaying mansion.
Amberlyn discounts the paranormal legends as made-up stories until she hears the shuffling of footsteps in the cold, dark halls and feels that she's being watched at every turn. She knows the ghost is real and she must protect the children. But when she discovers a graveyard behind the mansion filled with babies who died at birth or shortly thereafter, she realizes the ghost of Bloodmoon Manor is really a family curse and she was brought there to uphold a grim family legacy. Either she finds a way to escape with the children.or she is doomed to become the next Bloodmoon bride.

Chapter One

February 18

Dear Cain,

Two weeks ago, I couldn't have imagined myself where I am now. I couldn't have imagined I'd ever leave you. Even now, I know it was only the thought of escaping my pain and helping these orphaned children that made me leave. I couldn't even say goodbye to you. I wasn't strong enough to explain why I couldn't live the way we'd been living ... not since I lost the baby. I couldn't take the implication that you blame me for the accident, just like your parents do. I didn't want to hear that your love for me is over. Or maybe I didn't want to face that I blame myself for everything that's happened, too.

Only now am I realizing what a great mistake it was to leave without a word. You know how hard it is for me to reach out for help, even when I need it desperately. I think about you constantly here, where there's no light, no hope. I'm a prisoner, along with these frightened children who only turned to me because they have no one else. In some ways, though, I think I was meant to come here. That the Lord led me here to help them. They've lost everything, just as I have. Here I'm not a burden or a failure. I've helped them. Simon would have died; Jack and Lydia would have been pale and lifeless eventually, just like Hannah, the strange maid who seems afraid of her own shadow.

These children have eased my losses in ways that I don't want to dwell on right now. What if I can't get them out of this place? What if-

Shuffling footsteps outside the nursery door caught Amberlyn's attention. She lifted her head from the letter she wrote by lantern light. In the cradle beside her, the baby stirred in his sleep. Amberlyn soothingly touched him, and he quieted. She turned toward the door once more. The uneasy sensation remained. She wasn't alone. Someone was just beyond, waiting. Watching her.

Unwilling to put stock in Katerina's ridiculous claims about a ghost who haunted Bloodmoon Manor, Amberlyn rose to her feet. Grabbing the lantern, she walked toward the door.

"Katerina?" she called, disliking the tremor in her voice.

As she expected, no reply came. Still, she couldn't convince herself she was alone. Katerina's words, filled with cruelty and relish, from earlier that day came back to her: "He wants you, my lovely. He's haunting you. Have you felt him? He watches you. Do you sense his excitement in the dark? He'll come for you. You'll be his precious to do with as he wishes ... until he destroys you. The first time he touches you, your skin will crawl. You'll never be clean again. He is evil. He puts evil inside you."

A scream rose in Amberlyn's throat as the shuffling footsteps in the hall came again, and the doorknob began to turn. The ghost! He was coming for her.

    A black shewolf with red markings on her shoulders walks in. She has blazing yellow eyes and is small and lithe. She pads in and looks around curiously. "Hello?"
