Summoned to England after her hated grandfather's death, Victoria Hunter was eager to claim her inheritance. Her hopes were dashed, however, when she learned the legacy consisted of her family's ancestral mansion, but no money to run it. Determined to keep mysterious Lansdowne Hall, the headstrong beaty refused all offers from her greedy relatives-including one from the darkly handsome Jasper Thornley-not realizing that someone wanted the windswept estate enough to kill for it. Saved from certain death by Thornley, Victoria sought comfort in his arms. But an ominous foreboding warned her to trust no one until she unearthed the long-buried lies that haunted her new home and threatened her future happiness.
