Left with no references after being sacked by her lecherous employer, Danielle Dulac is out of options. So, when Anthony Markham, enigmatic Duke of Blackmoor, offers to hire her as governess to his four-year-old son, despite a niggling little voice telling her to run, she accepts.
A notorious rake, the Duke is surly, sarcastic, embittered, and hostile. And the most sensuous man Danielle has ever met. The attraction between them is instantaneous, combustible…and forbidden. Governesses do not fall in love with Dukes.
She soon discovers that the Master of Blackmoor is haunted by a dark and tragic past filled with lies, betrayal and death. Unfortunately, the past is not over. Evil stalks Blackmoor Hall. The danger is escalating and all the clues point to the Duke himself.
As the passion between Anthony and Danielle rages out of control, so does the peril they face. Will they uncover the evil in time? Or will it destroy them both?
