Review quote

"In a stunning change of pace, Phillips reveals a brilliant flair for the gothic as she channels the Bront?s, Daphne du Maurier, Victoria Holt, and Phyllis Whitney [...] An unforgettable, deliciously spicy romance that readers won't want to put down."--Library Journal (starred review)
