I own that I've fallen in love with my new husband! And I knew very well I shouldn't. Though handsome and charming in a rakish way, Lucas Davin is a cutpurse from one of the worst criminal districts in London. I married him in a desperate attempt to keep my inheritance. No gentleman of quality would have me, you see, because my estate is haunted by Lord Barrett Hamilton -- 200-year-old ghost.
I never believed the ghost existed until I saw Lucas suddenly transform into the very likeness of a gentleman -- even a Lord! Is it possible, Gentle Reader, that he has been possessed by the ghost of Lord Hamilton? If so, should I have the ghost exorcized? If I do, then Lucas will return to his old life of thievery, and I will never see him again. If I don't, his very life may be in danger!
Please respond quickly, for my heart aches with the sweetest and most unladylike passion. I will manage as best I can until I receive good tidings and advice from you!
Mrs. Lucas Davin
(nee Miss Caroline Wainwright)
