Claire St. John lives in solitude near the grounds of the sprawling Hartford hall, an ancestral estate on the English countryside. Her life remains serene until she discovers a mysterious ring that belonged to the lady of Hartford Hall before her scandalous, unexplained disappearance a century earlier. When Michael Townsend arrives in town and rents Claire's guest home, she instantly senses the darkness that surrounds him. Claire knows she should stay away from him, but the passion that ignites between them blazes too powerfully to be resisted. As Claire aids Michael in a dangerous quest, she soon finds herself caught in a web of magic, psychic battles, secret societies, and star-crossed love.
