Can the ghosts of the past reach out to the present?
All her life, Annie Mignon has dreamed of the private school she’ll inherit from her Aunt Helain and the new life in France she’ll start with it. Instead, with a sudden heart condition which could end her young life before it’s even begun, she’s agreed to marry Duncan Patrick, a man over twice her age whom her sneering step-father has pressed upon her, all as a way to get to France before this last chance disappears.
Dedicated teacher Etienne Voland is still trying to pick up the pieces from the unexpected passing of his beloved adoptive parents, both of them lost before he could even say goodbye. Searching for distraction leads him to a job at a reopened school with a highly-dubious past--and a meeting with a woman he knows he could love.
But the school where these unexpected feelings begin has a terrifying history, one which closed it when Helain’s husband and his mistress murdered her there. As Annie and Etienne grow closer, despite their best intentions, they begin to notice other disturbing patterns, especially with the ever-more-sinister presence of Duncan and his own mistress always watching.
But history can’t be so easily repeating itself, can it? And, if it is, can they stop it, or will the slow-burning passion between them be lost before it begins?
A slow-burn, new adult, very steamy romance, this unusual contemporary gothic tale includes intense suspense and even more intense love scenes with an occasional side of humor and a definite HEA.
