The Nethercott sisters return-and start believing in ghosts
The Nethercott sisters-China, Jade, and Sian-recently lost their beloved father, who believed in ghosts with all his heart. Still, China is shocked when she sees a ghost in a Roman centurion's garb. Quintus Valerius is cursed to remain on earth until he can save one of his descendants from murder-work that has been done in vain, until now. With the help of China, he intends to save Alexander, Major Lord Braddock.
Although Alexander balks at taking advice and protection from a ghost and a woman, China still can't keep herself from thinking of the handsome war hero in some very improper ways. But she's soon to learn the second half of the curse that Quintus forgot to mention: China's destiny may be tied to Alexander's-and equally deadly.
Meet the Nethercott sisters: China, Jade, and Sian. Their dear, eccentric father died before he could convince the world of the existence of ghosts. Now, out of mourning, Jade is ready to prove him right. But soon she'll wish she were dead wrong.
Murder most foul! Jade hears whispered in the halls of Nethercott Castle. Sir Mitchell Renshaw's ghost has come to tell her that he died at the hands of his fianc‚e's brother, Sir Gideon Bannatyne. As presumptuous in death as in life, he demands that Jade travel to London to protect his beloved, who, Renshaw believes, is also in mortal danger.
Sir Bannatyne is a gentleman in name only, with his penchant for fast sport and faster women-and he sets Jade's body afire with a mere glance, even as he makes her an indecent bargain. But he proves his mettle when he risks arrest rather than ruin Jade's reputation. Now she must decide whether to heed the ghost's warning or follow her heart-and revel in what might be a killer's embrace..
