Sydony Marchant is suspicious of the maze behind her new home, an old manor house with a sinister history. She’s even more suspicious of darkly handsome Bartholomew Hawthorne, and when he arrives on her doorstep, she doesn’t know whether to run to him—or away from him.
Viscount Hawthorne hasn’t traveled to Oakfield for a friendly visit or to gawk at a garden maze, no matter how eerie it is. He’s there to solve a mystery of his own, and he won’t be distracted by lovely Sydony Marchant—even if she could be his one weakness.
But Sydony and Samhain may change his mind.
"Simmons grabs readers with a well-crafted Regency-set romance. A stormy, bleak landscape; a dark, unwelcoming manor house and mysterious goings-on in the overgrown ominous maze lend a chilling gothic flavor." – Romantic Times
