Some say that a phantom haunts Elmstone Manor. A young woman, heavily veiled, has been seen walking among the estate’s lavish rose gardens. The townspeople are afraid to go there, but Lucien Delacourte has no choice.
Hired by the owner of Elmstone Manor to tutor his younger sister in painting, Lucien is on the run from his own ghosts. His wife and daughter were killed in a fire in Paris, and he can’t escape the knowledge that he might have prevented their deaths.
The reclusive Lady Sarah hides her wounded heart behind her veils. But the sad eyes of her handsome young tutor seem to burn right through them, willing her to face her fears. Awakening to the world again, Sarah longs for Lucien’s love. Yet how can a man so used to beauty ever desire a woman whose face he hasn’t seen…?
