These events precede those in Jenna’s Eternal Lover, published in Cotillion Christmas Spirits.
In 1806, Roman Trent proposed to Serena. When told to go away, he went all the way to India. His years there didn’t dilute his love for Serena, however, nor his interest in her theories of education. Now Serena has fulfilled her dream, establishing a school, and at last Roman has the opportunity to start his own—right next door to Serena’s, on property willed him by the late Lord Everston.
Now the ghost of Roman’s benefactor—along with Jenna, the ghost’s earthly love—must ensure things go right for Roman and Serena. Unfortunately, their efforts to bring about true love are complicated by another woman’s determination to marry Roman…and made nearly impossible by Serena’s vow to never marry anyone.
Lady Octavia Seldon has been kept close to home "for her own good" and "just because" for too many years. She answers a false advertisement for a governess position and escapes. When she is rescued by the notorious roué Dominic Thornton, Marquis of Brightwood, the Thornton family blessing takes hold. The two fall deeply in love and are wed. Scandalously, they forget to inform friends and relatives. Still more scandalous, Tavie, as she prefers to be called, is the daughter of a twenty-five-year-old scandal, compounding the problem.
With the ton outraged and Dominic's behavior seemingly beyond forgiveness, spinster sisters Elf and Ally Thornton rush to the aid of their favorite relative.
But suddenly more than scandal is involved when the young couple begins experiencing a series of what might be fatal accidents.
