Laura stands frozen in front of the gates of a castle that looks straight out of a dark fairy tale. The owner’s name is Richard, and she wonders if he’s as terrifying as all the villagers say. But no matter what sort of man Richard is, she was sent here as a nanny and must look after his daughter. However, Richard swiftly and bluntly rejects the young Laura. She tries to find a way to get him to accept her as a nanny, but that is difficult to do when he keeps to the darkness in order to hide his scars. Richard was injured in an accident, but Laura wants him to come out into the light. It’s not just for his daughter Kelly’s sake, it’s for her sake and Richard’s, too!
