To defeat a dark evil, they must face his family’s past…
Bastian Carlisle, the Earl of Weymouth, doesn’t believe in ghosts. Even though tragedy and mysterious hauntings have driven his family away from his ancestral home, Stormclyffe Hall, he is determined to restore the castle to its former glory. His plans are disrupted when a stubborn American shows up on his doorstep hoping to pry into his family’s tragic history.
Jane Seyton, an American graduate student, is convinced there’s more to the tragedy of Stormclyffe Hall than history claims. Ever the scholar, she is determined to discover the truth, even if it means putting up with the arrogant, yet sexy, Bastian.
Although Bastian wants nothing to do with the pushy American, it soon becomes clear that something evil is in the house—and that something is targeting both Jane and Bastian. The two must join forces to purge the ghosts of Stormclyffe Hall once and for all—even as they try to fight a physical attraction between them that grows more and more impossible to deny.

I was sucked into this dark, brooding, mysterious love affair into another world and time within moments of opening the first page of this book.

 Bastian Carlisle, the Earl of Weymouth, is the last of his line. His family has been cursed by an ancient evil that seeks to destroy all who would call the grounds of Stormclyffe Hall.

Jane Seyton is a woman on a mission to finish her dissertation but once she steps foot on Stormclyffe grounds she finds herself part of something much more dangerous both to her soul and her heart.

Can Bastian and Jane break the curse and live? I was riveted to this Gothic romance from the start. If you are looking for dark, dangerous, mysterious, with a bit of magic thrown in then dive in the pages of both the past and present of Lauren Smith's book. You won't be disappointed. I look forward to reading more of her stories in the future.
