A Regency romp . . . Losing His Spirit . . . Christian Reade, heir to the earldom of Westhaven, is tired of ghosts. It's his own fault for debunking a haunted house in Belles Corners as the work of two silly pranksters. Now the practical "ghost-hunter" – inundated with reports of apparitions – is trying to get away from it all with a long-overdue stay with his grandfather. Unfortunately, Christian's reputation has followed him. But this time, the request for his services is irresistible . . . as it comes from the enigmatic Miss Parkinson of Sibel Hall.
Winning Her Heart . . . She claims that a phantom is disrupting her plans to sell her gloomy home. But upon Christian's arrival, he's met with all-too-human antagonism from the residents, from the servants, and - especially surprising-from Miss Parkinson as well. What dire predicament is really unfolding at Sibel Hall after the sun goes down? The intriguing puzzle – and the fetching beauty who wants it solved – have sparked more than curiosity in Christian. But first he must solve the mystery of the seductive Miss Parkinson herself!
