Intent on uncovering what really happened when her brother died in the Amazon while treasure-hunting with Theo Moreland, the Marquess of Raine, American journalist Megan Mulcahey takes a position as governess to his younger siblings.

Theo is not only titled, he's also powerful and much too handsome and intelligent for Megan to relax when he is near.

Theo finds the beautiful, daring and clever governess intriguing. But her resemblance to the woman who has haunted his dreams plagues him. Is she the vision he fell in love with in the jungles 10 years ago, a thief or something else?

Megan must keep her wits about her and tone down her growing feelings for Theo if she is to uncover the secrets hidden in Broughton House. But as she the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, she learns to trust the man she'd set out to destroy.

Skillfully combining the best of the traditional gothic and the mounting excitement of a romantic suspense, Camp spins a tale that commands attention, thanks not only to the mystery but also to her engaging characters and the sexual tension between them as the mystery progresses.
