When all the world has forsaken you...
Flee into the night...
And become lost in the walls of Valenstone Mansion...
Jasper Duvane is a man entombed by secrets. Forced to lead a solitary life within Valenstone Mansion, he exists now only in his watchful observance of a world he’ll never be a part of again. The shadows are his sole companions, his artwork, his only source of peace. But then Emily Mathers sweeps in on a moonlit night, a child in her arms—and she quickly fills every room with color and sound. In his determination to watch over her from afar, he soon finds it a hopeless endeavor to stay away at all. And before he knows it, he’s become possessed by the one thing he never expected in his miserable existence: true and abiding love.
Emily Mathers is a woman running for her life. When she enters Valenstone Mansion, she is armed with nothing but her own unwavering determination to be free. She and her daughter seek sanctuary inside the mansion’s supposed abandonment. It doesn’t take long, though, for her to learn they are not alone; someone else is lurking there as well, watching and listening. But once she meets Jasper Duvane, a man who mysteriously disappeared from society years beforehand, she begins to wonder how she will ever be able to bring herself to leave him. Like a ghost, his face and voice haunt her. Like a man made of flesh and bone, his heart swiftly steals her own.
But will love be enough to save them? Can they find a way to stay together, despite the forces that threaten to tear them apart? Only time, hope, and a great deal of faith will tell…
