Overview

Her arrival stirs something deep and dark. Perhaps even deadly

Celia Fairmont’s new home on the wild coast of Cornwall is a sprawling ancient mansion steeped in history and deep, dark secrets. From the first night her dreams are plagued by images of clandestine meetings with a handsome, reckless lover. The man in her visions looks disturbingly like the oldest son of her new guardian, the Earl of Ashbourne, but there the resemblance stops. Phillip Leighton is practical to a fault and too preoccupied with estate business to even notice her presence.

Phillip Leighton does not have time for illogical romantic fantasies about his father’s young ward. The very lovely Miss Fairmont is unsophisticated and innocent—not at all suited to be the next Countess of Ashbourne. And besides, he is practically engaged to a titled widow. But erotic dreams disturb his nights, and by day she preoccupies his thoughts, and he finds himself fascinated against his will.

Phillip can’t seem to keep Celia out of his head—or out of his arms. When a series of puzzling accidents begins to happen, he knows with chilling certainty that their future is on a collision course with the past…

Read it. This story is sweet. I too was hesitant (its 700 pages and there are ghosts involved - which sounds lame) but for whatever reason it works. This is not as steamy as other Emma Wildes books but I really enjoyed it. I particularly like Celia who, unlike some heroines, never acts like a child. She is mature, insightful and sweet. I wish we got to know a bit more of Philip but it still works. Read it.

I was initially reluctant to purchase this book, because the cover and title are lame. Also, the reviews were less than stellar, and I had no desire for a mystery to be woven into any romance story that I'm reading. However, I am a big fan of Emma Wildes, so I figured I'd give the book a shot. I am so glad I did. Do yourself a favor, and read this book. <3
