The ghost may be the least of her problems...When vivaciousactress Sybil Ingram leaves the theater in 1873 to marry a wealthy American,she quickly finds herself a penniless widow. Her only legacy is Brooke House, aGothic revival manor that turns out to be haunted--not only by a hostile ghost,but also by former violinist Roderick Brooke, the most insolent, dangerous,maddeningly gorgeous man she's ever met.

As Sybil and Roderick engage in a battle of wills--and wits--she finds herselfincreasingly drawn to him. But the mysterious queen of local society, Mrs.Lavinia Dove, has some connection to the haunting at Brooke House, and she isdetermined to have Brooke House and Roderick for herself... if necessary, bydeadly means.
