Guard Your Dreams . . . Lest They Emerge from the Mists to Embrace You! After her mother is murdered, Elizabeth’s grandmother uses magic to summon a champion from the mists to protect her from her nefarious stepfather. Granny Sheila calls forth a Dark Hero based on the Gothic Romances Elizabeth devours with relish. When a beguiling Irishman appears at their cottage one magic summer eve, he seems to be everything Elizabeth imagined in a hero. But her dashing Irish beau is much more than he appears to be. Donovan Beaumont is a tormented recluse who takes refuge in logic and reason. As Elizabeth’s husband, he is much more than she bargained for when she said ‘I do’. Once they arrive at his isolated island estate in the West Indies, a dismal place where ghosts linger and sorrow pervades, Elizabeth fears her new husband may be courting madness. She struggles with his dark moods, his eccentricities and their growing estrangement. Elizabeth inherited the gift of the seer and is able to speak with the dead. Married to a scientist, she is reluctant to take up her gifts lest he consider her the mad one and pack her off to the nearest asylum. When she is stalked by a malicious ghost, Elizabeth is forced to embrace her magical heritage and confront the disturbing secrets hidden in her soul. The price of honesty may be too steep; if Donovan learns her horrifying secrets she may lose his love forever.
