I am Gillian and I am dead. Your sister will be too if you don't take her away from Haefen immediately. This was the message Caitlin Halstead found in her isolated tower room in Haefen the first night she came to visit her recently married sister there.
Blond, beautiful Gillian had been the second wife of Nathaniel Dauer, Caitlin's new brother-in-law, and there were rumors that her sudden death had been murder, not an accident (the official explanation). Soon Caitlin saw that her own life was in danger, for someone at the ominous mansion was seriously bent on destruction. But who? A ghost, a servant, Nathaniel's children -- or beguiling Brent Dauer, the black sheep of the family, who had captured Caitlin's heart?
