The lovely widow Kate Kingsley desperately needs the position of governess to Lord Carismont's troubled daughter in order to provide a home for her own son, but when she is offered a marriage of convenience instead, her heart leaps at the opportunity.
Too late to back out, she is told that Lord Carismont is responsible for her husband's death. Otherworldly forces and ancient magic, both benign and foul, are at work in the lives of these two lovers. Destiny has brought them together, but can their love transcend the lures of an ancient legend?
Sandra Heath takes her considerable talent and leads a merry dance into the myths and legends of an ancient culture, while never missing a beat of the Regency waltz that is her setting. Delightful! (Jul., 218 pp., $4.99)
