One girl's mission. A castle with its own secrets. And the man who holds the answers....
On a fool's quest to plead for more time to pay the taxes she and her grandmother owe, Bettany Sendris knows her errand may prove to be futile. But desperate times call for desperate measures. With winter closing in and time running out, it's up to Bettany to find a way to put food on her family’s table.
But when the worst snowstorm in decades leaves her stranded in Lord Greymount's gloomy castle, Bettany begins to realize that dark mysteries are hidden within the walls of Harrow Hall. Torn between her duty to help her grandmother and her growing attraction to Phelan Greymount, Bettany soon understands that there is far more at stake than merely her heart.
“Bettany Sendris is not easily daunted by anything…a young woman who pragmatically doubts that there is any magic left in the world is about to be confronted with something she can’t otherwise explain…. Although [Phelan] is in many ways a typical romantic hero, he and the plot are both a refreshing break from some of the tropes you tend to find in most romance…. A light, easy read, and one that I’ll probably reread when I’m in the mood to be snowed in with a mysterious, handsome man.”–The Geek Girl Project
