The whole family flies to France for the joyous wedding, but they can't shake their suspicions. Something is wrong with the count, but Cammie won't hear of it. There's no evidence to prove he's up to anything. Perhaps their suspicions are unfounded-and perhaps they're not. Soon after the wedding, Cammie begins to see the true monster that is her husband, and it may be too late for escape.
Jeremy Douglass is after his own answers. Raised in the United States, his parents always made him promise never to go to France. After their deaths, he breaks the promise and heads to Europe to figure out his family secrets. Along the way, he discovers Cammie. He is enthralled by the tragic young woman and must save her-but is he too late? Will the secrets of both Cammie and Jeremy ruin the lives of everyone they love?
