Tessa's love of romance seemed certain to be satisfied when she took a job as nanny to Stephen Peverell's young half-brother in a wild, partly ruined Norman castle on the Welsh coast. At first all goes well, then Gwenda takes a hand in Tessa's affairs and her new-found happiness threatens to collapse around her. There are other mysteries, too - what has Del Sefton to do with Alun's sudden disappearance, and what are Stephen's feelings towards the beautiful auburn-haired Oriel?
