Description from Amazon.com:
A fever dream of desires fulfilled.
Nestled in the shadow of the Appalachians is where Gwen Ashby stumbles upon the William Marshall Academy, and she’s given a trial position as a literature teacher. The gothic boarding school seems trapped in time yet it feels like home the moment Gwen arrives.
She’s charmed by the lovely buildings, bewitched by the eager students…and utterly seduced by the headmaster. Edwin Yorke is noble, handsome and infuriatingly proper. But his tweedy exterior and courtly manners conceal a raw sensual power that Gwen longs to unleash.
It’s strangely thrilling to be the only woman on campus—save one other. An eerie white-clad figure roams the grounds by night. She never speaks. She leaves no trace. But this ghostly blight on Gwen’s new dream life is the key to the Marshall Academy’s mysterious allure.
RITA® Award nominated title from International Bestselling Author Tiffany Reisz.
It’s that time of year when there is bubble, bubble toil and trouble. But it isn’t easy to come across a romance that can give you a few shivers without also being a bit terrifying. This one is shivers not terrors. I have wanted to read this author and since Harlequin is now having a big $1.99 sale this seemed the perfect time to pick up one of Ms. Reisz’ books. This is a novella so it is a quick read but I started it late in the evening and was up until the wee hours because I had to finish it. There are ghosts and mystery and twists and surprises along the way. Truly a delightful read. The romance is sizzling. Gwen is intelligent and beautiful. Edwin is a hot and hunky headmaster. The side characters are a delight. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers and especially to paranormal fans.
