A dark presence that can't be ignored… 
     Bloodstone Manor is the most infamous haunted house in England, a place where ancient legends and old mysteries linger amid cold walls. Gavin St. John makes his life's work ferreting out the secrets of the restless dead. Summoned to Yorkshire, the last thing he expects to find is the woman of his dreams.
     Carlotta Stone is frightened by the inexplicable happenings in her home, but powerless to stop them. When the handsome Mr. St. John arrives, she is immediately drawn into an old drama where two lovers seek to reunite by the use of the notorious ghost hunter—and herself—at least their bodies. The lingering passion she experiences in his arms is just exactly what has been missing from her life.
      But danger lurks in the form of a malevolent evil that has not forgotten a betrayal that spans time and human suffering…

5 Hearts: "This book is so masterfully written, I still get chills up and down my spine when I think about it. Whether it is from the sex alone, yes it was that good, or partially due to the macabre elements of the plot, I cannot tell. The plot is chillingly delicious with some surprise elements and lots of twists and turns to insure the reader cannot take their eyes from the pages. Our hero, Gavin St. John, has all the attributes a woman hopes for in her man; considerate, polite, handsome, and so sexy that our heroine felt an immediate attraction even though she’d never felt one before. Carlotta, the dowager duchess, is strong, sensible minded and very beautiful. Aunt Lillian, the late duke’s aunt, thought they would make the perfect couple, if they lived through the spectral events brewing at Bloodstone Manor. This book deserves the highest praise. If you enjoy a good ghost story or are a fan of erotic romantic suspense, this book is for you." —Karen H., The Romance Studio

5 Blue Ribbons: "Right from the start I was intrigued by the characters and fascinated by the history of the various ghosts of Bloodstone Manor. Each scene adds a new level of tension and excitement that had me enthralled in the storyline and anticipating what would happen next. The lovers who are using Gavin and Carlotta to reunite will touch readers' hearts almost as much as their hosts budding romance. Emma Wildes has created a series that will have readers eagerly awaiting each new addition to this thrilling series." —Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies
