Publisher's Summary

Scarred in a duel over a feckless female, Gavin Lawrence leaves America to take up his new duty as Marquess of Effingham, vowing to never again care for another woman. But lurking in the Marquess' crumbling manor is a young woman in terrible danger. The self-sufficient daughter of a soldier, Dillian Whitnell hides her injured cousin in the secret passages of Arinmede Manor following an attempt on their lives. Trapped by the Marquess' unexpected arrival, Dillian tries to convince Gavin she's a ghost while planning their escape. As their hide-and-seek game leads to increasingly close encounters, Gavin's irritation turns to intrigue, and intrigue into forbidden passion while the real villain stalks them both.

Silly! Save your money.

I thought this was very mediocre and was disappointed. The idea behind the story could have been good with just a little effort.
