A dark enigmatic hero, a young governess, passion, sensuality, mystery and murder: Silver gives the reader everything they want in a gothic reminiscent of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and then adds an updated twist of her own to the suspenseful
and chilling conclusion.

To Emma Parrish, Manorbrier Castle is a forbidding sight. She heard the stories about the castle and of her cousin Delia, who died there along with her unborn child, murdered by her husband Lord Anthony Craven. But she accepts the position as governess to Anthony's son, Nicholas, anyway.

Nicholas is a bright cheerful child and Emma is pleased to see the love Anthony has for his son. Tall, dark and attractive he has a certain power and confidence, and his seductive voice sends shivers up her spine.

A sense of being watched by a voice that whispers her name and the shocking discoveries that are in the tower have Emma demanding answers from the enigmatic Anthony. When he gives them, will she listen with her head or her heart? For Emma cannot resist him as he draws her into his very being. (Zebra, Nov., 352 pp., $4.99)
