Romance Suspense | Romance Historical

Mount Mellyn stood as proud and magnificent as she had envisioned...

But what about its master--Connan TreMellyn? Was Martha Leigh's new employer as romantic as his name sounded?

As she approached the sprawling mansion towering above the cliffs of Cornwall, an odd chill of apprehension overcame her.

TreMellyn's young daughter, Alvean, proved as spoiled and difficult as the three governesses before Martha had discovered. But it was the girl's father whose cool, arrogant demeanor unleashed unfamiliar sensations and turmoil--even as whispers of past tragedy and present danger begin to insinuate themselves into Martha's life.

Powerless against her growing desire for the enigmatic Connan, she is drawn deeper into family secrets--as passion overpowers reason, sending her head and heart spinning.

But though evil lurks in the shadows, so does love--and the freedom to find a golden promise forever...
