Publisher's Summary

In Grimsgrave Hall, enigmatic Nicholas Brisbane has inherited a ruined estate, replete with uncanny tenants and one unwanted houseguest: Lady Julia Grey. Despite his admonitions to stay away, Lady Julia arrives in Yorkshire to find Brisbane as remote and maddeningly attractive as ever. Cloistered together, they share the moldering house with the proud but impoverished remnants of an ancient family: the sort that keeps their bloodline pure and their secrets close. Lady Allenby and her daughters, dependent upon Brisbane and devastated by their fall in society, seem adrift on the moor winds, powerless to change their fortunes. But poison does not discriminate between classes.... A mystery unfolds from the rotten heart of Grimsgrave, one Lady Julia may have to solve alone, as Brisbane appears inextricably tangled in its heinous twists and turns. But blood will out, and before spring touches the craggy northern landscape, Lady Julia will have uncovered a Gypsy witch, a dark rider, and a long-buried legacy of malevolence and evil. Deanna Raybourn spins a gripping tale of loyalty and lust, set against the wild beauty of the Yorkshire moors.

Compelling romance continues

This is a satisfying continuation of the relationship between Lady Julia Gray and the enigmatic Nicholas Brisbane. This was first issued with a different reader who was not good but has been reissued with Ellen Archer as reader and this is a great improvement. Nice light listening.

Great Gothic Mystery! Best of the series!

I was entertained, but lukewarm to the first book of this series. I liked the 2nd book well enough, but I'm so glad I stuck with this series and purchased this 3rd novel. What a great book! Deanna Raybourn has achieved something very rare -- a book that is every bit as fun, dark and thrillingly entertaining as any by the Bronte sisters. Well done! And Ellen Archer has softened her delivery for the principle character, which is a great improvement. (All her other characters were perfect from the first book.) I Really, really loved this one!
