Will an Ancient Curse . . . Miss Jillian Ashcroft is determined to end the curse that has haunted her family for generations, even if she has to resort to trickery to do it. It helps that she has a bit of blackmail on Sir Richard Blackwood, whose fiancé wears the magical stone that can break the curse once and for all. With Sir Richard's reluctant help, Jillian wrangles an invitation to Endicott Keep, his betrothed's dark, gloomy castle. Now, she has only to steal the stone, end the curse, and convince herself she's not in love with Richard.
. . . Lead Them to True Enchantment? Peculiar, madcap, impulsive — these are the words Sir Richard would use to describe the mischievous sprite who has badgered her way into his life. Though her wild stories of ancient curses are ridiculous, the beauty's lively spirits have him living life to the fullest, playing the spy, and generally enjoying himself as never before. And soon, Richard begins to suspect that Jillian may have a bit of the enchantress in her yet . . . for she has completely bewitched his heart!
