St. Giles takes the timeless gothic
to new heights with stories that chill you to the bone yet heat you with
their sizzling sensuality. She is the grand mistress of the modern-day
gothic romance.

Gemmi Andrews can see and hear ghosts. The "gift" enables her to help catch Jack "the Ripper" Poole. Poole is dead, but a recent spate of murders makes it appear that he's risen from the grave.

Determined to uncover the truth, Gemmi stows away on Captain Deverell Jansen's ship to help with the investigation. A strong attraction exists between them, and when a suspicious sailor puts her life in danger, Deverell insists they marry. Though it's a marriage of convenience, the lovemaking is hot and heavy. As she becomes caught up in the investigation, Gemmi relives the terror of the murders. Clues and puzzles are revealed, and peril mounts in a white-knuckle climax.
