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.
