Journalist Laura Kate O'Connell is pulled into a series of mysterious deaths originating at an elite school for girls. Honored Daughters School was founded by Civil War veterans for their daughters and descendants. The murders were successfully disguised as accidents until Darienne Birdsong is killed and tossed into a black farmer's field. Was the first black student the target of the old Ku Klux Klan? Or Pearse Macaula, an ex-soldier turned militiaman? Or Hewatt Hoeister, over a land feud going back to The War? Because Laura Kate was born into the Southern Aristocracy, Special Agent Nyan Hill believes she'll prompt confidences and solve Dari's murder. When she sees what's been happening for years -- a corrosive horror in the midst of quiet gentility -- she's shocked, but can she prove murder? Her personal dilemma complicates things. Jack Rhodes has asked her to marry him. Love him as she does, marriage and babies has never been in her plan. To make matters worse, fascinating Pearse Macaula falls for and stalks her. He's dangerous, but did he murder the Honored Daughters girls? While brushing off his advances, she must trust him. This is a man who always gets his way. Will he kidnap or kill her if he can't have her?
