The disinherited son, the new heir, the illegitimate son – all of them are there. Murder is done. The centuries-old curse has struck again. Penelope alone heard the supernatural scream and sees the ghosts that no one else can. Penelope is a reluctant bride-to-be, contracted to wed a man she’s never met before. She intensely dislikes her betrothed, the rakish Lord Taredell. With a murderer in the haunted house, dare she trust the rogue lord? Is Lord Taredell really her protector? Is he the murderer?
