“Jane Eyre meets The Mummy…[her] characters
are so multidimensional that readers
will swear they’re based on real people.”
— Romantic Times BOOKreviews, 4 1/2 Stars
WARNING: This title contains explicit sex with a hero whose torment equals that of Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester and a heroine who has the courage to save his soul, despite the fact that his love could be the death of her.
When Constance Rockwood Athelson, Viscountess Westbury, hides her face to attend the Black Widows Ball, she never expected to find erotic passion in a masked stranger’s arms. The torrent of lust isn’t enough to drown out her dubious “gift” for seeing visions and talking to the dead.
Terrified of being found out, she secures a position cataloguing archaeological artifacts for the Earl of Lyndham—where she encounters a ghost begging her to break a curse plaguing his family.
Before his mysterious lover disappeared, Lucien Blakemore was tempted to throw caution aside. Yet he knows one taste of love will unleash the curse that drove his father and brother to murder their wives.
When he returns home empty-handed and empty-hearted, he’s shocked to discover his new assistant is the goddess who fled into the night. But could her presence be part of a murderous plot to unearth the location of a secret Egyptian tomb? The answer—or his doom—lies behind the desire shining in his seductress’s eyes.
This book has been previously published by Samhain Publishing, and contains an epilogue never before included with this publication.

“Ms. Burns is masterful at escalating the sexual tension and suspense with her characters. Three generations of murder, stubborn ghosts, and an aging matriarch with attitude are the perfect compliment to a fantastic love story that is a joy to read.”
